Screen Protector, do you use it?

I got a screen protector with my Onyx Boox Note3, but so far I haven't put it on, as it looks glossy. If you got a screen protector with yours, have you used it, and are you happy with it?

I have not been able to mount them bubble-free on my devices and therefore use my devices without them.

The last screen protector I bought and used was for the Nintendo Switch. My ereaders have flip covers so for me that's good enough. Likewise for my phone and tablet, I always buy a case/cover for it that has a flip cover. The idea of not having flip covers gives me the willies because when I want it with me I toss them in my backpack when I go out and there's all kinds of stuff in there that could scratch them. I used to be a bit obsessive about using them but they've fallen by the wayside for me.

I did not put a screen protector on my Max 3 (even though the shop where I got it from was so nice as to include a free protector when they shipped the Max 3).

So I have been using my Max without protector quite a lot for half a year now and my experience is two-fold:

On the bright side, the wear is minimal and I am happy with the feel to the stylus on the (non-glossy) screen. So I'm happy with my decision.

On the other side, I am always a little nervous about scratches (for example: I do not let my kids draw on my Max) and I'm careful not to apply too much pressure, though I'm determined to be "fine" with it should I scratch it someday. It's meant to be used after all.

hope this helps

I didn't apply the included screen protector either. I have the Nova 3 color and it's already darker than the non-color version don't want to add another layer. Also I *love* the feeling of the pen on the screen, I don't want to change that experience to worse.
And yes, it's hard to apply w/out bubbles so not even going there.
In general I don't apply screen protectors to my devices; by nature I take good care of them and where I feel like they are liable to be scratched (like a reader in a backpack) I buy covers/cases (which I have for Nova 3).
So far I didn't have any incident of scratched screen (God forbid a cracked one :scared: )

A simple flip cover was more than enough for years in my backpack.

Device: More than I need, but not as many as I would like.
I installed a screen protector on my original Note after noticing some micro scratches on the screen as I tend to press fairly hard when I write or draw. However, I couldn't do a bubble-free installation of the screen protector. Luckily, the bubbles are small and don't affect the usability of the device.

Didn't apply a screen protector to either my Note Pro or my Nova Pro as they have a harder screen which doesn't seem to need it.

Will not be applying the screen protector that cam with my Nova 3 Color as the screen is already dark enough without adding another layer. Also the screen face seems similar to my Nova Pro so I don't think It will need it.

I do, however, always get covers for my ereaders so that I can feel confident when stuffing them into a bag full of various other objects.

Hi, I resume this old thread cause I want use a screen protector but I'm also having problems with the screen protector of my Onyx Air, the one included in the package is really worth it and after reading about the problems here and elsewhere, I even tried to apply it in the bathroom after having saturated the room with steam but nothing ...applying it without bubbles is impossible (and besides it is really smooth and does not give the paper effect at all).

I learned through another forum that Doodroo (they make the best paper effect film for ipad) just released one for Onyx Air but I can't find it on their site ... someone has had the opportunity to try it or has the product link?
