Technically speaking, the glass on there is a screen protector. If you scratch it, it's an easy self repair. Parts are about $20 and the foolproof process runs about ten minutes. That said, after one repair, I elected to cover mine with a screen protector from Zagg. People throw these on their iPads and iPhones all the time. Same material, very resilient, minimal loss to visibility. Whose pixel peeping on their 3" screens??
