    Now that we've had a few generations of iPhones', what have you found to be the absolute best screen (and back) protector?

    This works pretty well to be honest. It's pretty cheap considering you're getting five total films, three for the front and two for the back. I'll have to order some more for my 4S.

    By far the best film! I've pretty much tried them all.

    The best ones are the antiglare/matte ones, mainly for their texture.

    Does the matte finish mess up the retina display clarity though?

    Does it scratch easily? I don't want a ****** looking protector on my phone, lol. Also, fingerprints?

    I just bought the Graft Concepts case and want a really good protector with it as it is more of a high-end case.

    PS: Anyone have a free shipping code? :p

    From the reviews, it seems to do so.

    Power Support is BY FAR the best out there, and it does resist scratches pretty well.

    How about the HD matte version? Does this do better with the text blurring?

    Any distortion is at an absolute minimum.

    Personally I've tried them all, and I agree that power support and sgp are the best in terms of clarity. However, they're a huge pain to install correctly, and from my experience the sgp collected a ton of little nicks and superficial scratches.

    For my money, I went with phantomskinz, which is a "wet" install (sgp and power support are dry). I'd say it's maybe 95% the clarity of the sgp and power support, but is much much easier to install. The texture feels pretty close to the screen itself, and there is only the slightest bit of "orange peel" when held at an angle.

    Stay away from zagg and bestskinsever for your screen.

    If you are looking at pictures of the white phone, the second one is the proximity sensor... it's the same for the normal iPhone 4, you just can't see it on the black ones...

    Supposedly there are issues with the white phones if there isn't a second cutout there though...

    Well that been the case an iPhone 4 screen protector is no good then because it won't have the cut out? Or does the iPhone 4 have it too? when you look at the screen protectors they only show 1 slot?

    It's called Oleophobic, comes on the phone from Apple.

    In the form of a coating, with wonderful tactile feedback why cover it?

    I've never experienced scratches, and it doesn't obscure the view.

    My phones survived being dropped face down (that's why the word is accident)

    And it's still absolutely flawless, pretty amazing really :)

    Proxy sensor shouldn't be affected by a clear screen protector on a white iPhone 4.

    You're lucky your screen hasn't scratched, mine has.

    But I can't justify spending a large amount of money on a clear cover when I can get on that does the job perfectly for less than $2 :)

    Ordered more Powersupport anti-glare films when I preordered the 4S. They really are the best.
