I thought the new iPhone had some sort of smudge resistance on the glass?
It has some pretty hard glass as glass is not all the same. The only thing I try to do (but often fail) is not drop it in my pocket with my car keys or change. Even that happening often and I wipe the iPhone on my sleeve and the screen is shiny and not a scratch. Putting a cover on it would be a waste.
I disagree. I have big hands and the small phone is slippery as all hecl on some days. I need something a bit more tactile and grippy. Not rubbery, just more grippy than steel and glass. My 1st gen iPhone ended up in the same pocket as my keys and I ended up with a scratch.
I tried commando, and lost. The iPhone survived, but barely. Never again. Went with Incase. It's low profile and slick enough to get in/out of the pocket fairly easily. As a compromise, Zagg (InvisibleShield) makes a nice clear wrap that will prevent scratches, but not much help from shock.
