    guys i have some cheap sp's on my n3ds/og i bought it off amazon 6 pieces for like 4$ or so..

    i put them on and there are no bubbles etc. they fit nicely, but i would like to know if they could make the screen scratch more? o.O

    sorry i am also going OCD with the circle pad grips i have received from CyberGadget.

    ('cause i would like to keep them on but i worry about the top screen getting damaged from having it on while i close the lid etc. so i have also placed some bumpers on the top screen of my 3ds'es..)
    i hope someone could help me out with this? is anyone here using circle pad grips and keeps them on permanently?

    i am too lazy to keep taking them off..i bought the bumpers and you can see i cut them into pieces because they were abit too huge. (i bought some that were recommended to me, they are good! but abit big)

    i will provide you guys with some pictures.

    I'm using cheapy 3DS XL screen protectors. So far, I've noticed that they get scratched mega easily - there's the difference between the good ones and the cheap ones. I think the cheapy ones use a softer plastic and hence they scratch like a mofo.

    oh yeh! i noticed that there were some scratches from the moment i have put them on actually XD

    but i actually meant whether they would also damage tthe actual screen instead of protecting them, considering their cheap quality.

    I've never had cheap screen protectors damadge screens but I guess it can happheen. There are two types of touch screens, make sure you're usinf the correct type. The bumber idea I suggested with picks long ago using cabinet bumpers readiloy availoable at any department store and I leave mine on perm. I cant see any diff, between that and the circle pad /pad tip as long as it isn't also rubbing on the top screen. Even (cheaper) rubber can be abrasive. GL
