Some of the smoothness may be from the oleophobic coating on the glass. If the screen protector has an oleophobic coating, it may be similar to the Apple screen.

If there’s a difference it’s so minimal you won’t notice. That being said some of you look at your phone too close and try to look for a defect. I prefer a screen protector as I can swap it out when it doesn’t feel smooth anymore. Can’t do that (cheaply) with the original screen.

I can't imagine not using a screen protector because I'd really hate how many scratches I'd have on my screen after a year of ownership. I've had to change the TPU protector on my Pixel 6 Pro like once a month because of falls and scrapes that have taken chips out of it. Sure am glad it's scratching a cheap rubbery film instead of an expensive screen.

Me either. I always have one on. Can’t stand all the micro scratches that accumulate. I work outside so they can be pretty obvious.

My tempered glass screen feels smoother than the iPhone screen.

amFilm, from Amazon, BTW.

I love amFilm. That's what I use for my Nintendo Switch and it works like a charm.

get a branded one. not a cheap one and they will have smooth surface and good oleophobic coating. you will not feel the difference. and give you twice protection

It definitely feels better than having cracks in the screen.

Never really used a phone without tempered glass, but I have noticed differences in feeling between different tempered glasses. Right now I am using Spigen EzFit on 14P and it has definitely the most pleasing feeling so far (this is also the most expensive one I have ever bought though), but it’s worth it. I do recommend it.

I always use tempered glass and I hardly notice a difference, honestly. I’ve used cheap dollar store tempered glass and I’ve used fancy Otterbox tempered glass.

The smoothness comes from the Oleophobic coating. It degrades after time. So buy a screen protector that has the coating and change it as needed.

Just like sex, it doesn’t feel as good with protection but you need it.
