    Hi everyone! I was wondering what screen protector that covers the front and back of the iPhone. I have read about the Invisible Shield, but perhaps there is a cheaper alternative that does the job just as well or better?

    Theyre the exact same except for the sides. So yes Wrap, sgp, and PS.

    Cheap $1 protectors from sw-box.com, they have the best fit and adherence.

    Unless you want to pay many times more only because it has a brand.

    I mean... It is just a 0.02 oz sheet of some plastic material!!! No way they want to charge you $7!!!! It is more expensive than silver!!!

    I was going to make the same thread, so I'll ask here.
    Which brand provides the best clear, non-distorted, "invisible" screen protector?
    I've had Invisible Shields for different devices, but I don't like the texture nor the odd look it gives the screen while on.

    Thanks!

    Just put on the SGP "Ultra Fine". Much better clarity than the standard ultra anti-glare version.

    Only issue is the adhesive they use is to strong. So you only really get one chance to apply. Lifiting it back up (without damage) did not work...even with duct tape.

    Any "crystal", "clear" or flat surface screen protector will do the job, invisible shields does not have a smooth surface and will distort your images.

    These are not bad, very scratch resistant but they have a rainbow effect in my ipad, but less visible when screen is on. However it will dissapear within few weeks.

    Gotcha. Many reviewers suggested these over the Zagg invisibleSHIELD.

    I used to use the Zagg Invisible Shield for my iPod Touch and my Droid. This way about 1-2 years ago however and since then many new and improved screen protectors emerged.

    I do not recommend Zagg. It has an almost greasy feel to it, even after a few weeks of drying. There is a prominent orange peel effect as well as the rainbow.

    Gonna go naked with my Verizon iPhone; don't want to ruin the retina display

    Difference in screens between iPhone VZW and AT&T?

    As far as shields (front/back), are the screens the same for the iPhone VZW and AT&T? I went to Best Buy to purchase protection for my ne VZW iPhone the day it arrives- but from what I read, I think I'll return the Zagg.

    Also, some boxes were marked iPhone 4 and others were marked iPhone 4G. Difference?

    Thanks.
