Screen protector poll ends, Apple TV poll begins | iLounge News


Screen protector poll ends, Apple TV poll begins

With over 1,800 votes from readers, our latest poll—Do you use a screen protector or film on your iPhone or iPad?—has now ended. With the evolution of Apple’s device lineup over the years and iPhones and iPads becoming more common, we were curious to know how many of our readers still use screen protection, and if so what their reasons were for doing so.

Responses from the overall majority of our readers were pretty closely split between those who don’t feel a screen protector is needed at all (40%) and those who use one primarily for protection (39%). Of the remaining responses, twelve percent indicated that they’d like to use one, but really don’t like its impact on their device’s screen, seven percent indicated that they do use a screen protector for oth protection and anti-glare, and two percent use one primarily for anti-glare purposes. One percent of respondents indicated that they simply don’t want to pay for one.
