    SGP Oleophobic or SGP Ultra Crystal?

    I plan on really touching the screen, especially with with the photography edit apps and other touchable apps like N.O.V.A. Is there a difference between these shields, and which one is best that more than likely will not get any scratches?

    I had the zagg for my previous iphone, and I didnt get one scratch with it on (but I didnt drop it either).

    Hi, I actually posted a response in another this thread (sorry about kinda hi-jacking it, I liked the thread so much, because I was about to ask the same question), but here is my response:

    Get the oleo.
    It's very very clear, and you won't have as many fingerprints. You'll really like it. You can read reviews from many many people on here, and most say the oleo is better.

    Wow, thanks for the great advice.

    I just have one last question about this:

    Is the Oleo very scratch resistant like the zagg? Like I mean in terms if you are really playing with the screen with your fingernails or thumbs, can my nails penetrate the shield and scratch it over time, or make the shield weaker?

    That's what I wondering about what's the main difference besides clarity with the crystal and oleo? Is so tempting, and I really need to buy one today.

    I want to say thank you a million for the help as well.

    I have the Oleo and find it impossible to clean, shows a lot of fingerprints. Quality is excellent, but be prepared to clean it, often.

    Ralph, it's $15, you're not buying a car.
    Buy one, try it out, if you don't like it, get something else. No need for 500 questions in 3 threads.

    As I said before, the oleo is much more clear than the zagg, but much less scratch resistant. If you want protection, get zagg/wrapsol/bodyguardz/bse etc. If you want clarity, get the oleo or crystal, but if you need to buy one, just buy one and see how you like it.

    haha yea. It was so confusing because there's a lot of mixed threads, some like the crystal, some like the oleo, all I want to know is which shield out the two is more scratch resistant like the zagg? BTW do you know of any other dry install front shields that cover the front camera like sgp.

    You plan on really touching the screen? Who doesn't? And touching does not scratch the screen. You guys are wasting money on these screen protectors, unless you put your keys and phone together in your pocket you don't need one.

    LOL! Any Sausage stylus users out there?

    OP stop tormenting yourself already. Buy both and return the one you don't like (or give it to an iPhone friend). They offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

    I got the Ultra one because everyone was saying how the other one causes fingerprints to be more noticeable.

    Which ever one you decide, buy it off Amazon. They have free shipping offers as well :)

    Thank you for the replies my friends.

    Yes, I'm tired of the torment lol, I just want to buy a shield with the front camera not cutout, and enjoy the phone! lol.

    I just was so confused, Oleo or Crystal? LOL,

    I think I might as well go with the Crystal as the hardness is 4H, and the Oleo is 3H
