A short answer is:
Definitely yes. we advise you to use a screen protector as well as a back cover for your iPhone 6.
The long answers are:
Screen Protectors prevent iPhone drop from height and other Impact Damage
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screen is built with so called Gorilla glass, which claims withstanding scratches and dropping from height. However, the truth is, any inadvertent (or intentional) drop will render the Gorilla screen shattered into pieces. Especially the four corners, and if you drop it to the right point, your iPhone glass will break like ordinary glasses. (Check the link out, it is only the tip of the iceberg.)
There are uncountable drop tests posted by Youtubers, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screen cracked when the phone was dropped onto a tile surface with the bare screen facing down. The situation improved a lot when an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus was dropped with a tempered glass screen protection on. The iPhone 6 screen wasn’t damaged at all.
Screen Protector Prevents iPhone Scratches
Usually when we go out, the iPhone will be put into our pocket, or bag. And unfortunately, these are places where we put our spare changes and keys and other scratchy items too. Which means your iPhone is prone to be scratched. Therefore, a case and a screen protector can largely reduce the threat.
Screen Protector makes sure a clean screen
It is very likely that we use our iPhone every day, which means that we are constantly touching the screen of our iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. While touching the screen can leave oily fingerprints and smudges, it’s not easy to clean these oily smudges off if the iPhone isn’t wearing a screen protector. Because usually the screen protector is more smudge resistant than the bare Gorilla glass.
Therefore, a screen protector can ensure a better viewing experience.
Higher resale value as your iPhone remains intact
We trade-in or sell our used iPhones when a new one is published. This happens around us and you may have done it too. Therefore, keeping your iPhone intact throughout the usage will help you squeeze some more cash when you sell it in the second-hand market. If your iPhone is shiny and intact when you are selling it, it is very likely that you will have a hundred bucks more to put on to the new Apple iPhone.
