    I've been looking around for the best iPhone 4 screen protector. Right now, I have a Zagg invisibleSHIELD that I bought and Best Buy and had them apply. I don't like it too much -- it's too thick and kind of wrecks the clarity of the screen, and I have the vertical rainbows issue.

    I've only heard of a few others -- wrapSOL (which some people haven't liked...) and the Power Support Crystal films (which don't ship until the end of the month...)

    Which one would you guys recommend me get? I'm going to keep the Zagg for now, but just until I find something that maintains the clarity better.

    Another thing I was wondering is about the Power Support anti-glare (vs Crystal) films -- do they really destroy the clarity of the screen? I'd like to have a little less glare but the whole point of ditching the Zagg is to get a clearer protector.

    Thanks guys.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I have a CandyShell on order, heard it's a tight fit for screen protectors if that makes a difference.

    It really depends on what you're looking for. Some offer minor drop protection, others only scratch protection but with anti-glare or oleophobic coating or even privacy screens. Do you just want a screen protector or a full body protector? It just depends on what you want.

    Forgot to edit it in before your post but I have a CandyShell on order for full body protection so I'm just looking for good screen protection.

    If all you want is screen protection, then you still have a plethora of choices. Anti-Glare? Privacy? Oleophobic? Protection? Is price a concern? etc.

    Price isn't really too much of a concern but I don't want to spend more than $30 or so.

    As for my choices: I really want something that provides protection while maintaining the clarity of the screen. I'm not too concerned about privacy -- and don't even know what oleophobic is. Anti-glare might be a good idea as long as I don't lose too much screen clarity.

    Oleophobic just means oil resistant. Much less fingerprints.

    Eh, don't care too much about that then.

    I don't think so. Power Support is held in high regard here. I've personally not been able to use this particular film yet, but I only hear good things here.

    Yeah, I've really heard nothing but great things about these protectors too. I'm just trying to debate between the anti-glare or the "Crystal" screen protector because I don't want to lose clarity for anti-glare.

    Hopefully someone can chime in with that info. I don't know. I do know that most anti-glare screens have a slightly matte look to them.

    I really like this iPhone 4 full body screen protector. I got it because it was a good price. Most of these things are expensive, over $30. It fits really well on my phone and I don't have any glare issues. It does the job, protects my phone from scratches.
