The first thing I bought for my Nokia N8 was a screen protector. It was a cheap, RM10.00 piece of sticky plastic pasted on the N8 screen. First, the clear display was blurred by the screen protector. But I thought I could live with that as long I can protect my N8 screen from scratches. I put my phone in my pocket with my keys and coins … sure enough after a few days, there were scratches on the screen protector.
I said to myself, “see … the screen protector is doing its job, preventing the keys and coins from scratching the display”.
After a few more days, after hundreds of phone calls later, my oily cheek started to weaken the screen protector adhesive and a few days after that the screen protector just peeled off in my pocket.
Not satisfied with the “cheapo” screen protector, I searched the net for a good screen protector for my N8.
And … this is what I found!
I don’t need a screen protector after all. The N8 is fitted with a gorilla glass which is very scratch resistant and the anodised aluminium body is hard enough to withstand the daily abuse of keys and coins in my pocket.
I have not found any information on the glass used for the N8 camera … hopefully it’s gorilla glass as well.
