    I picked up one of these in town today. Managed to apply it perfectly with no bubbles/dust.

    a) the camera hole is in the wrong place so the protector actually covers the camera

    b) even worse, the whole screen now has a multi-coloured texture to it, visible on all colours (though much worse on white). I assume this is light refracting when it hits the matt texture of the protector. It is much more distracting than any reflections from just having a naked screen.

    So, ignoring "a" for now, is "b" typical for matt protectors (it's the first one I've used, always had glossy before) or are there some other brands which don't have this effect?
    I would be OK with a vague fuzziness, but the multi-coloured fuzziness just looks terrible!

    Its not a good screen protector. Worser than zagg.
    The camera holes are way off. There is atleast half cm off both the sides.
    Anti-finger print is a myth for this, tons of finger prints. Waste of money, i brought it a month back and gave it back to frys.

    I put a review here couple of weeks back.

    Thanks, I did see your review when I searched the forums (after I'd already bought it though!)

    I was less concerned about the fit (at the moment) than the speckly-multicoloured-texture effect. Do you know what I'm talking about? Is it common to all matt screen-protectors?
