    People always seem to want to know what a Matte protector does to the screen so below are before and after screens. What I find interesting is the pixels seems off center on the iPad 3 unlike the iPhone 4.



    If you want to see what the iPhone 4 was like here they are



    I will still take a Matte protector over plain glass. Fewer finger prints, No glare, Smoother gliding. Easier to clean.

    Thanks for the comparison photos. I just contributed to a post/debate about the merits of putting a matte screen protector on your iPad 3 - given its retina display. I'm with you though, I would much prefer to have a nice antiglare screen with limited fingerprint issues.

    That being said, I am definitely still a little reluctant to put an antiglare screen protector on my iPad 3.

    Have you by any chance had a chance to compare your iPad 3 with the matte screen protector side-by-side with a new iPad 3 with no screen protector on it?

    I found that I under-estimated the impact my antiglare screen protector had on screen clarity with my iPad 2 until I compared my iPad 2 with its matte screen protector side-by-side with the iPad 2 that had no screen protector.

    I have not compared but with my iPhone 4 I decided to go a week without a antiglare and I can say it does look smoother but with all of the reflections, horrible finger prints and finger not gliding like I am used to made me go back to the antiglare.

    I can tell you for a fact you will get a slight grainy look which my screenshots provide. I can also tell you that I can easily see a difference between a 720p video and a 1080p video on my iPad.

    I have taken a screenshot of the iPad using 1024x768 and a 2048x1536 wallpaper and I can say the difference is huge with the protector on.

    You can still distinguish the individual pixels on the screen so it is not like putting on of these protectors on is going to make it look like a iPad 2 display. It is far better than a iPad 2 display. Example.


    That picture was taken with a wallpaper that is 1024x768 so it shows what a individual pixel would look like on a iPad 2. You can clearly see there is 4 pixels per pixel on the image so it is 4 times the resolution.
