How many not using screen protector with their Pixel 2/XL ?

I see the screen so nice without the screen protector lines/edges.
But what if it scratches (but my N5X is fine for months without screen protector) what if it cracks (had impact damage on my N5X no crack on glass but the LCD beneath the glass kenna, some black leakage-like damage).

Beauty vs protection

I'm using his TGSP now. it's decent I guess. better than some of those cheaper ones selling on qoo10.

been using it for almost a week, still no sign of dust between the TGSP and the screen. so I guess that's a good point.

I do experience some clicking at the corners where maybe the adhesive doesn't adhere properly but my guess is that it's quite common for these kind of TGSP that only has adhesive on the edges.

if you're willing to wait, I'd rather you hang on till the whitestone dome releases it's TGSP for the Pixel 2 XL. should be coming out on the 20th on Amazon.

Thought I was alone.

Could be due to your casing design too.

The TGSP sits well with the official fabric case but not so much in my experience with the Ringke Fusion.

I usually use without TGSP and in the past without casing but after good reviews on Jimmy's TGSP thought I'd give it a try.

US Apple shop pricing... in USD. Have not included tax.





Looks like getting the Cygnett USB C with PD powerbank from Aus is slightly cheaper.

For those looking for physical store with Pixel 2 TGSP and cases can try Moby @ Far East.

The TGSP is almost full face with black borders, case-friendly and got dots matrix.
But quite expensive.

Theres Ringke and Spigen cases there.

Also got the charging stuff, didn't look closely as my Anker charger already doing the job well.

Was told its the AmazingThings brand the price is $30.
Proximity sensor not covered, has hole for front camera.

Anyone knows if there will be a Nilkin Nature TPU case for the Pixel 2?
I find Ringke and the Spigen lookalike cases too thick, makes the Pixel 2 bigger and thicker than my Nexus 5X in case.

The Spigen lookalike I'm talking about is this one:

Looks like Spigen's Rugged Armour case but its unbranded and sold by a few on Qoo10.
Actually the texture feels good but it a little thick.

---

Anyway the Ringke Bevel TPU case came today and it feels the best so far.
The least bulk of the 3 cases I've amassed.
Think I'll stick to this one.

No screen protector since Nexus one.
Never use non Google Android phones since 2009 ,
never sell my Nexus series of phones, all in collection

I am using an external sleeve , the latest being hand made (by wife) self stitched leather sleeve.

The drop protection is better than screen protector with rear cover.

Non noticeable scratches till retirement on all devices with usage of 2 years.

I don't put SP for my 5X and Pixel. Both have some faint scratches. Only visible under a certain angle and lighting.

I usually go to the beach. I think they may have been scratched by sand.
