I always used a pouch to protect my cellphone from scratches; it was when I bought a phone for my daughter I was introduced to a cellphone protector. The lady in charge offered it to me for my daughter’s new phone; it really helps so the cellphone would still be as good as new if you have a protector installed on the screen of your phone.
When I bought a new Samsung pocket, I never hesitated to buy a screen protector for my new phone. My new phone is a touch screen so it is exposing for fingerprints or scratch, a screen protector is a must. Now I don’t have to buy a pouch for my phone because my Samsung Pocket is protected.
