    I put a matte anti glare screen protector on my original iPad and I liked the look and feel. With walls of windows in my house the reflections were hard to deal with.
    My iPad Mini actually seems more reflective. I'm using an Otterbox Defender case and I am considering removing the case's clear plastic screen cover and installing an anti glare screen protector on the mini. But the anti glare screen protector somewhat dulls the display.
    How are you guys dealing with the reflectivity of the screen?

    Think it's the same as my iPad 3. Not big of a deal TBH.

    I prefer ultra-clear more than anti-glare. The screen remain clear look.

    I'm thinking about getting an antiglare screen cover. It's annoying using it in class and other rooms with florescent lighting on the ceiling.

    Before adding anything to the screen, have you tried turning the brightness up? I can max mine out and it looks great even in sunlight.

    I noticed the extra glare immediately. Who makes a good anti-glare screen protectors without totally killing the screen clarity?

    I tried this one:


    I left it on for a week and hated how it made the display so fuzzy.
    I think that's unavoidable with a matte anti glare screen protector.

    I like the clarity of the unprotected screen, but I want some protection. I am going to get one of these for protection and clarity:


    I just hope I can install it bubble free.
