I used my S8 for its entirety without a screen protector (I could never apply one without getting dust underneath) and case. Outside of a few minor scratches, it held up well. I even dropped it from standing height several times with no glass breaks.

I completely agree about screen protectors but disagree on cases. I've never used a screen protector, with the glass they use on phones these days (and for years now) I think they are totally unnecessary. Cases still have a use though. I don't drop my phone often but it does happen and they can really save an expensive investment.

I use a case as well as they do help when you inevitably drop your phone right on the corner. I'm just saying that they take so much away from the aesthetics of these new devices. Apple and Samsung put millions of dollars into designing a phone just to have us cover them up with an $8 piece of plastic. It's unfortunate that phones still can't deal with being dropped on the sidewalk.

I have an OtterBox clear case on my Mate 20 Pro that provides drop protection while not covering the sweet Twilight backing.

It may sound weird, but it's just a beautiful phone. It makes me really want to treat it well. The build quality, the weight, the feel... all as good as it gets.

My only disappointment is the pre-installed screen protector. Whoever did my phone at Samsung did a terrible job and there were several obvious dust spots underneath it. I didn't expect such a poor job from a manufacturer. So I took it off immediately.
Haha I still haven't received my phone. I'm tracking it on Purolator. It was in Calgary Friday and Monday. Then yesterday afternoon it went on an adventure to Vancouver. At 2:00 a.m. this morning it was in Burnaby. Might just wait for the S11 at this point.

Think this thread is my best bet for help. I have a still image I want to animate so that it fades in and out with maybe a heart beat sound. What app should I use?

I am. I have a feeling it is going to be a very VR heavy console. Possibly totally VR.
