    Hey guys -


    new to the forums, just for my iphone 4 last week.

    I know I want to get some kind of screen protector for the phone, power support, zagg, ghost armor or something of the sort.

    I can see myself being very picky and not wanting something that i am going to "feel". I have heard that the zagg can be kind of rubbery

    which is the best for me??

    also anyone know of any kind of "loud" cases with some funky designs?

    Long story short:

    SGP currently makes the best screen protectors. The ones you wont "feel" are the Ultra Oleophobic and Ultra Crystal. There are recent threads comparing the two. The only issue is that these screen protectors cover the front camera.

    Power Support also makes very good screen protectors but they are currently only available for preorder and will probably ship at the end of the month. We're not sure whether these will cover the front camera but they probably won't.

    Agreed, if all you want is scratch protection without the "rubbery" feel, SGP and Power Support are probably the favorites around here.

    Is there something else that screen protectors offer besides scratch protection? Or did you mean to say 'If you want scratch protection w/o the rubbery feel'?

    Wrapsol Ultra is one of the more rubbery types and it is supposed to help provide drop protection, as well. It is "self healing" also, so any scratches the protective skin gets generally go away after a few hours.

    I haven't tried the others mentioned, but it sounds like they offer more clarity, more fingerprint resistance, but little/no drop protection.

    I'm seriously considering the SGP Ultra Crystals...they look like an incredibly well done product. They offer the same protection as ZAGG or BSE correct? What with the key test and the bag of nails etc, it will protect the screen from scratches as well as those?

    Power support has really good screen protectors for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. I used the anti-glare film, boy was that thing good. Not a scratach on it even after tons of abuse.

    zagg invisible shields are good - if you are looking for protection, zagg is definitely one of the best in my experience. clarity is acceptable.

    if you dont enjoy the rubbery feel (although it shudnt bother you too much) maybe just have it on the back?

    What's a good protector for the back that doesn't mess up the flash? Are wrapsols fixed and worth it for just the back?

    +1 ^^^ IS is the way to go, since ifrogz screen protectors don't fit their own cases!!! (ifrogz has given me full credit (can be used on the website store) for two cases and a 3-pack of screen protectors, and allowed me to keep the two ifrogz cases). I've tried all three ifrogz screen protectors on my & my wife's iPhone 4 and they just bubbled up at both ends and on each side while attempting to apply their cases. Got full-body IS once again; I've always liked the added protection and just got use to the feel of IS on the screen back in 2007...:cool:
