    still pretty shady not to advertise that though

    Mine arrived from Amazon.co.uk today in same packaging. However I purchased it from a "Fulfilled by Amazon" reseller if it makes any difference.

    It is Made in Japan, contained 2 x crystal fronts and 1 crystal back, cleaning cloth but was missing the pre-installation film.

    The cuts were perfect, no rainbow effect but it was missing the cutout for the proximity sensor above the earpiece.

    Installation was perfect and bubble /lint free but I am too unsure if its genuine.

    I normally purchase directly from the manufacturers but the international postage was so expensive.

    If you got that grey packaging, I think you are safe. It is just the japanese version.

    I doubt someone out there is creating fake screen protectors lol

    thanks solo118 - just saw a similar thread in the iPad forum on this. It turns out that they are the Japanese versions which don't contain the pre-installation films.

    This.

    Do you guys realize that copying that packaging would probably cost more than the film itself or nearly as much?

    I got a Japan one also, but my package was green. Still, looks different from the American version. It also took longer to get here and came from Hong Kong. Oooohh, scary China.

    I paid $13 for it, it came with everything, and installed fine. Looks absolutely great.

    the whole of singapore is selling this version.. so definitely its original.. we only had this grey packaging here, and it is distributed from a legit company.
    There are 2 versions,
    1. 2 front 1 back
    2. 1 front only

    no worries man!

    I bought mine from Korea while I was traveling - from an authorized seller. The packaging is the same. Mine was made in Japan as well.

    PowerSupport that we get here in the States, I believe, are distributed by PowerSupportUSA and these are...well, not from PS USA.

    These are legit. Don't worry about it :)

    I got the same. It's real, if not a damned good replica, like 100%

    If you live in the US then great but I live in Finland and PS want 30$ in shipping charges alone via cheapest method.

    I bought some from the net for my 4s, and I'm 90% sure they're fake, as they are so different to the ones I bought for my 4. Firstly, the screen cleaner is a different colour and material. Secondly the screen protector only has a sheet below it and not above it. The plastic film on the underside my previous power support screen protector had been divided into 3, so that you could remove the middle segment and then position on the iPhone screen, stick down the middle bit and then the ends. However this screen protector wasn't like that. Finally, this screen protector didn't fit properly, ie however much I tried if the home button was to be aligned with the film then the camera and speaker weren't and vice versa.

    Yeah last time I paid £32.95, I used one and gave my dad the other. This the 64GB had bankrupted me so I paid less than £9 so I guess it was too good to be true. No worries I'll buy an official one soon hopefully
