Is rear-pad protection recommended?

Protection is always nice, but I like it raw. Feels better that way.

I wouldn't say it's needed or a must have, but as mentioned above, extra protection is always nice and since you're a new owner, you'll likely grow more accustom to the attachment while playing versus someone like myself who's had the vita for a few years with no pad protection.

I have a PS Vita slim and even though I don't have any equipment for protection to it but I have a PS Vita handle grip that helps me played it better. But yeah having extra protection for your PS Vita is needed just in case. :)

I havent had it for the last 10 years and it still functions the same from day one.
However This rear pad is so damn un-handy, one of the worse invention for an handled device.

Not really needed. In fact, you’ll turn off the touchpad and only ever use it when forced.

Personally I don't have anything but a screen protector on both my Vita 1000 & 2000. I like the way both feel all natural, fits my hands better without a clunky plastic case or those weird rubber sleeve things I've seen for them. As long as you're careful an not just tossing your Vita around when you're not using it the back touch pad should be fine without protection.

Out of context, I found this hilarious. 😂

 

But yeah, thanks for the input guys.  I will not use the protection based on the feedback.  As long as I'm careful.

I sweat like a mo-fo so the back of my Vita is always slippy and gross. I haven't been able to find a reliable grip device so I've just dealt with it 😂

Yeah the rear pad is just a pain in the butt. Who thought putting a touch pad where you hold the handheld was a good idea? If the game allows it I usually disable rear input

Pretty much this.

 

Unless you use the rear pad as a substitute for your sander, you should be fine for the 1-2 times that you ever use it.

I've had my Vita since 2013. It does have a few tiny scratches on the rear touchpad, not even sure how it got 'em, but it still works fine. I think. Haven't really tested it in about a year or so, but it was fine back then anyway and hasn't accumulated any new marks since then.

 

My main issue with it is it getting kinda sweaty or otherwise gross, have the same issue with my glossy 3DS consoles. I noticed it's worse in winter, I think it might actually be condensation or something, I have seen legit water droplets on it at times after holding it for mere seconds even when my hands are bone dry.

 

Might be worth getting protection if you want to keep it pristine and/or have gross hands like I do, but it should be fine otherwise.

Not sure. I don't know if they made accessories just for that. I'm a new owner too. I do have small travel case to put the Vita in when not in use. I'm gonna look for a screen protector as well.
