I just got a vita and was wondering what I should get to protect it. What cases do you guys recommend that is not too cumbersome and can hold games? Do I need a screen protector? Will it scratch like the psp or did they put some sort of anti scratch in like on the iPhone and iPad? Will the protector effect the touch screen sensitivity?

I've never bothered with screen protectors for either my PSP or my Vita. Both are still in perfect condition. It's only the DS with its resistive screen and hard plastic stylus that requires a screen protector to keep it from scratching like crazy.

As for the case... well, mine is a pretty bulky case that stores up to 10 games and 2 memory cards. I don't mind bulky, as long as it protects good.

A crystal case works good, but access to the back touch panel (and possibly the touch screen, depending on the case) is restricted.

I use screen protectors for all my electronics. Replacing a screen protector costs maybe $10 at most. Replacing an LCD screen can be several times that amount.

    It's not about being hard but the ease of use of just grabbing it while it's charging

    that's fair tbh

    And less wear and tear on the port it's self
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    I think it's a cool option but I also don't think it needs to be like, the only option or anything, especially when the port can have other uses

    (USB-C flash drives, using a cord to transfer files to/from PC)

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    I'd be more into them if they can charge to 100 in like 30 minutes

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Plus c cables are still worn easier especially if you rest the cord on your chest or something while replying to emails at bedtime or whatever usb c cords still aren't that durable is what I'm trying to say

    I think it definitely depends, bc I've not had any issues with any of my usb-c cords I've ever owned
    personally

    I think the one I use for my phone is one of the Switch pro controller cords, those are weirdly sturdy for better or for worse

  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    but I've got a cheap walmart cord that's faring well too

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    It's just depending on what you use

  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    yeah for sure

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    I prefer using my phone more than my pc weirdly so it would tear more

  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    yeah that'd make sense

  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    I use my computer far more than my phone so it makes enough sense that my phone is faring well
