Phone Screen Protector - Effect on Screen Button Sensitivity

I've had my Nokia Lumia 521 4 months and the on/off screen buttons became insensitive to touching them - frustrating and time wasting.  I peeled the original screen protector off and they are much more sensitive.

The touch setting is on high.

Please advise what protector brand(s) will give good sensitivity.  Longer protector life would be nice too but I mainly want the phone to be easy to use.

The Skinomi brand was recommended to me.  They're $ 12 a protector for my phone.  In reading reviews about them, the Zagg brand was mentioned as "the best" but more expensive ($ 15 each).  I can live with the price since they're guaranteed to last but there is no discussion of button sensitivity any where for those or any others.

I conclude that sensitivity is not an issue for most people, but I'm not very confident that's correct if you really want to use the phone.  So many things are purchased just for show.

Can anybody give me some information about protector film effect on screen button sensitivity?

I personally don't use a screen protector. With the new coatings on most phones they really aren't needed and I prefer the look of the screen without them. Your phone though is not Gorilla glass and also tends to show oils from touch so I see the desire for a protector.

Zagg is the market leader and in all the reviews I have read I never heard a mention of sensitivity problems from the protector. The biggest issue with protectors is vibrancy/quality of the screen image being affected. If you had a protector and were fine with it before, Zagg will not disappoint in this regard.

When I used a phone with one, I personally didn't notice any problem with sensitivity.
