I haven't used a screen protector for several generations of iPhones. I have a basic apple leather case on it and that's it. I throw it in my pocket, drop it on the ground occasionally, generally beat the hell out of it, and not a scratch on the screen.

Just my 2cents

I evolved from - put-screen protectors-on-everything to no longer use them. Why?

The oleophobic coating is critical for keeping finger prints from these screens. I see no screen protectors with the same kind of coating. Had an iPhone with the screen protector, had it crack, then removed it - I was amazed at home much nicer the iPhone was with the coating.

To protect my iPhone, I always use a case that has a lip to keep the screen from getting a direct impact when dropped.

I have used stick-on glass screen protectors on all my recent phones. Whatever seems to have a decent price and a decent review profile, I think they all come from the same factory anyway. I don't notice any fingerprint issues nor any loss in screen sensitivity. They have saved the phones from a few noticeable scratches over the years.

Look on Amazon for a 9H Tempered glass protector.
For a little more $$ you might find some that are Oleophobice, like mentioned above.
You can usually get a 2 pack for slightly more than a single.

Or a 3 pack, + Acer's good review profile, *and* rounded/radiused edges.

I am a fan of the Power Theory glass protectors that come in a 2 pack for $12.95. The surface feels very smooth and slippery with it on. I have had all three of my kids have damage only to the protector and not the screen so am happy with the protection. We also have my oldest daughter do all the replacements as she has the procedure down and gets good results.

I was going commando for years and years.
No case. No screen protector. No kids. Hah.

6 months ago my kid asked to borrow my iPhone to take a pic and OOOOooops!!!! It falls to the ground in slow motion slipping from fingers to cement. Chipped and fractured the front glass really good. Out of warranty. Applecare expired. $100 fix at a local b/m shop. No water resistance guarantee. And the responsiveness was just a fraction of a second off. It irked me.

Until the kids are grown, it's screen protectors 24/7 from now on.

Get one with a template. It makes things so much easier. No idea what model you have, but this is the one I got from Amazon:
