    Green Onion Supply is supposed to be pretty good but I haven't tried it. I have tried Spigen SGP and those are pretty, and most people seem to like them.

    Waiting for the Spigen Steinheil Ultra Optics shield for i5. Had one on my i4 and that thing is unbeatable for matte clarity and fingerprint/smudge resistance.

    I have tried many SP from matte to crystal to olephobic. My favorite type is the oleophobics ones. In order of prefference:

    1) Green Onions Supply Oleophobic: Same oil resistance as naked screen. My current favorite.

    2)Spigen Oleophobic: Less oil resistant than the naked screen, but still acceptable.

    3) Power Support : Although they have an oleophobic coating it is minimal. But have the advantage of being much more scratch resistant than GO and PS.


    I don't recommend matte as they cause a rainbow effect, and crystal ones look the same as oleophobic but are a fingerprint magnet.

    I use to hate zagg. However, since they released the HD and Extreme I've become a fan. Doesn't have that nasty orange peel effect and actually feels like glass.

    The one that comes with otterbox commuter is a pretty basic Screen protector. It has a cutout at the home button and a cutout at the speaker so the very top of your phone and bottom are uncovered. I prefer the ones that have the precise hole cut out.

    Don't have experience of the defender. I don't like the look and it's so clunky, if I required that much protection I'd buy another phone.

    I've been very happy with the SGP Ultra Crystals and Power Support Crystal Films. Clarity is top priority for me. :)
