You just buy a shiny new Apple Google Nexus 7 and you will be using it daily. The first thing that should be bought after your Google Nexus 7 is a screen protector.
Why would anyone want to cover up the beautiful Google Nexus 7 screen?
It's simple. To prevent scratches and spills.
If you plan on using the Google Nexus 7 often, you will want to protect the screen from scratches. There is nothing more frustrating than seeing a tiny scratch on your screen! You can get scratches if you place your Google Nexus 7 in a bag, purse, or briefcase. Dirt, keys, or anything else sharp can rub up against the screen and place the tiniest of scratches.
The screen protector will protect from water getting on the screen or food. If kids are using the Google Nexus 7 often, they can be messy and having a thin plastic screen protector on the screen will make clean ups very easy.
Most screen protectors offer amazing clarity. If placed properly the screen protector is not noticeable on the screen! I like that extra layer of protection for my Google Nexus 7 especially when you cannot tell it's even on there.
If you are familiar with the iPhone, the screen is beautiful but it easily gets fingerprints on it. It is the same with the Google Nexus 7. There are anti-fingerprint protectors that does not attract fingerprints. After using it, you will notice no oily residue on the screen. The only minor drawback is that it reduces the clarity of the screen just a bit. Not too noticeable to most eyes.
Another benefit to using screen protection is when you take it off in the future, your Google Nexus 7 screen will look as new as the day you bought it. If you decide to resell your Google Nexus 7, you can get a lot more money for one that looks almost as new as the day you bought it.
When looking for a screen protector you want to buy a high quality screen protector. You do not want to buy cheap ones off eBay. The price may be a few dollars but the quality will not be good. The screen protector will not offer 100% clarity and will not adhere to the screen properly. I have tried it once and I learned my lesson.
