    You need to clean your phone regularly.

    That's one of reasons I like a screen protector.
    They don't seem to attract the same amount of finger prints and I don't feel so bad about rubbing at my screen, no fine scratches.

    Maybe it depends on the type of protector then :)

    Both iPhone&iPad get a lot of glass cleaning, i also feel bad when i see finger prints on screen.
    I see people with iPhones with really badly cracked screen, one was trying to show me something on their phones, besides being cracked it was covered with dirty finger prints i did not even wish to touch it.
    I never let anyone hold my phone, it if show something to someone i keep holding my phone.

    Hah, me too. I have covers on all my iDevices (except my iPad 3rd gen, can't fit one after the accident ) and I am always wiping them down. My recommendation is to buy some micro-fiber towels, they work great

    Speaking of screen protectors......
    Always I've bought Tech Armor Pet film protectors but now they seem to just have glass ones for upcoming Xr.
    I got good at putting them on with no bubbles.

    I've never installed or used a glass one so I would welcome some input on those...

    I like the look of no screen protector. The device has such a nice look, that a screen protector cheapens the clean lines.

    I just have a microfiber cloth nearby most times (in the car, at the office, at home, in my briefcase), just give it a quick wipe and keep it moving.

    I don't use screen protectors. I do have microfiber cloths to wipe the screen. Works great. But I never see fingerprints. Just smudges here and there. I also use the microfiber cloths to clean my glasses.

    I have a glass one (my first) on my X. Smooth and feels just like the touch screen itself, much better than the non glass ones I have on older phones. I liked the glass one so much I bought one for my 12.9" iPad Pro, and it feels and responds perfect for me.

    I think I will get a glass one as I haven't been able to find a film one.
    My problem is do I get a full one that goes over the curve and possibly have trouble with bumpers fitting or get one that has a gap around and might not look as good.

    Mine are the Zagg ones, there is a small gap at the edges on my X but I've gotten used to it.
