    In terms of accuracy (fitting perfectly), staying on the phone, not damaging clarity, and perhaps oleophobic?

    SGP ultra crystal is what I'd reccomend for clarity... they also have a oleophobic but it's only a coating, so it will wear off after a while

    Anyone used both SGP and Zagg?

    I've used Zagg since my iP4 and always really liked it. Their lifetime warranty is hassle free too! If you mess up the installation or if your cases makes it start to peel up, just go online and do a warranty claim. You pay shipping and they send you a replacement. All you have to do is mail your old one back within 60 days.

    Will the sgp work on Sprint 4s? I didn't think there was a difference between 4 and 4s on the front, also it only states Verizon and AT&T in description. Am I ok to order? I'd like to get one of these

    I have. SGP are the best for the front... Zaggs are actually quite bad for the front (the screen) but I love them for the back... give it a little tackiness and grip. The SGP Steinheil Ultra Oleophibic screen protector is the best one I've ever used, have it on my iPhone 4S right now, and it will stay there forever as far as I'm concerned.

    I went ahead and morgaged my house, and ordered the Power Support screen protectors for my 4S...However I goofed and ordered 2 front and no rear sets. Today I ordered these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003X6LPRK/ref=ox_ya_os_product to fill the void left because I wasn't paying attention....Can't go wrong for$1.12 and free shipping for the rear screens.....I guess.....:rolleyes::apple:

    I use cheap screen protectors on eBay, after going through zagg which like the skin of an orange and, Martin field which says scratch resistant my @ss:confused: and some really good anti-glare protector which ripped off the coated stuff after 3 months of use. Now I use some cheap protector which comes in a packet of 10 5 front and 5 back at the cost of £1.35 with postage. Now I'm a happy man, this thing look so good maybe not as superb as those branded one, but does the job really well, and if scratch I just rip it off and paste a new one. If u all want a photo of those after applied I could show you:)

    I'd highly suggest the SGP oleophobic if those are your criteria.

    Is real estate that cheap in NC? Seemed really pretty when I was visiting up there. Of course, I was mainly in the Asheville area.

    I always hear complains about anti-glare, that it reduces the clarity of the screen, but I've never seen one. When you guys say clarity, it makes the screen hard to read? Less bright? Look like garbage?

    Genuinely curious.

    Yea, I use zagg for my MBP and Iphone and it's great! I love them, It's a little more expensive for their screen protectors, but if you watch out you can get them cheap and like you said the lifetime warranty is awesome!

    Zagg vs Phantom skinz vs Power Support

    I used zagg for a while. It's very similar to phantomskinz, which i used for the past year. Both have a slight orange peel. And slightly tacky surface. Phantomskinz seems to have slightly less orange peel texture.

    I decided to go with power support just to try it and I'll stick with them bc they have better clarity. Still using phantomskinz on the back though.

    Yes to all of the above. In addition it gives the screen a sort of speckled look, hard to explain but not something I'm fond of. I've tried them on 3 phones and every time I've torn them off and replaced them with crystal clear protectors.

    PowerSupport HD anti-glare is the way to go. I guess you lose a slight amount of clarity or whatever you want to call it, i.e. the screen will definitely look different. But, it's well worth it as the screen doesn't collect grease and I've found it increase my touch screen's accuracy quite a bit.

    If you play a lot of games then I'd definitely recommend the anti-glare from PowerSupport.
