    this is for people with 4 or 4s...since i think the screens are the same?

    if yes, just post the brand you use so if i decide to get one i'll know the best/favored one...i figured cheap ones would peel, interfere with scrolling, etc. my main concern is that it will change the color of my screen to appear darker, like a tint. does it?


    i've had nothing but a bumper since 4s launch. pristine condition with a few drops.

    I do use a screenprotector, better beeing save (while you dont see any difference with a good screenprotector on your screen) then having a regret. It also came free with the case i've bought.

    Of course. I used one on my 3GS, and when the 4 came out, Apple recommended NOT using one at first. I got bumped while walking and dropped mine, in a case. It hit a tiny pebble and shattered. So, yes.

    easy to apply?

    ----------

    these look nice. if i get one for front and back what is the texture like? do you reccomend front and back? is it noticeable that there is a protector on it



    edit: also power support has a lot (ie HD anti glare)...what do you have/reccomend

    SGP utlraolephobic. You might want to understand why people prefer a particular screen protector rather than just going with the most popular. Not all screen protectors are the same.

    Again, subjective matter. Do you prefer crystal or matte/antiglare?

    I've had every iPhone. Never had a screen protector...and I've owned each iPhone from launch day to launch day...and my son is six years old now. He's grown up with them. Never, ever had an issue or a scratch. I've sold every 'used' phone for usually a fifty to seventy five dollar profit!

    I'm careful with them...never put it in a pocket with coins or keys...but the screen is too darn pretty to cover it in any way, shape or form IMVHO:)


    As always, ymmv.

    I'm using the SGP Oleophobic. It came with Oleophobic front and Crystal Clear back.

    Originally did on my 3GS but then took it off after a while. I have a 4S now, but I'm going to put a screen protector since it's new and all. Right now it's rocking semi naked until my case comes.

    Yup, I've had good luck with the Power Support protectors sold at Apple stores.

    Nope. No screen protector now or ever in the past on any of my phones.

    I did have the Invisible Shield for the front and back, ordered it because of my positive experience with the iPad one. Now I won't order one of these pieces of **** ever again. Peeling up after a week, that's just horrible. Can anyone recommend a good skin dealer, other than skinit, that has textured skins or colored ones? And if anyone knows a good, fast shipping, backplate dealer I would LOVE to get a link.

    Yes 4S/4 have the same screens.

    HD Antiglare is the matte finish protector meant to reduce glare but that also reduces clarity somewhat.

    The Crystal films retain original clarity (good especially for Retina Screens) but you might get glare as a result.

    Think of it as Glossy vs Matte

    It won't take away from The touch screen At all? Also are they difficult to put on

    I have the crystal one but I believe there is an anti-glare one. Its very easy to apply and feels like nothing is on your screen. My second choice would probably go to SGP as I use this for my Galaxy S II.

    I also have the Power Support for my iPad 2. I swear by Power Support. You will not be disappointed. Good Luck!!!!

    Merry Christmas!!!

    Should I order PS right thru their site?
