I'm looking at getting a higher quality screen protector for my IP4 and see there's a bunch of them out there. I've tried ZAGG (didn't like them) and especially the wet install part. I dunno, dousing my $300 phone with soapy water simply to apply a piece of plastic doesn't appeal too greatly to me. So I know that several companies offer easy install or dry installs and I wanted to see if anyone here had any experience with those? I'm looking for a super clear protector and not any privacy/anti-glare ones since those sort of hinder the looks of the Retina Display. Any suggestions?

Edit: I've been primarily using the cheap $0.01 protectors off eBay and needed something more...durable? THanks.

There are dozens of threads on here about this, many with pics/reviews etc.

From what I've read, the best are:
SGP Oleophobic
SGP Crystal
Power Support

PS is more pricey, and SGP customer service is lacking (in case you have a problem)

I'm using the Oleo and it's great!

Everyone has an opinion of course, but mine is Power Support all the way! The easiest dry install EVER. I have used SGP and the Power Support blows them out of the water.
