    I have the anti-glare film. While the screen is slightly less clear with the film, you get little to no fingerprints. I went from wiping my screen once every 5 minutes without the film to wiping it once a day now that I have the film.

    It depends on personal preference.

    Anti glare does look nice at most angles, but does not have the shine and reflection the crystal clear offers. Both offer protection.

    In my family we have 4 iPhones 1 is still boxed lol, 2 have crystal clear and 1 with anti glare, and personally i prefer crystal clear because it gives the shine that the screen already had.

    As I understand it the anti-glare is better, glare wise (shocking right?!), but for me the crystal clear offered a certain sharpness that I didn't see with the anti-glare. But I do wipe the screen often and I didn't give the anti-glare enough time to see if I'd have to wipe it any less frequently.

    I'll be honest though, since the front is glass I was told no screen protector is just as good as a screen protector. I like to keep things protected or over-protected so I have one all the same.

    Depends on what your usage is.. IMO, if you spend quite a bit of time watching video, crystal might be better for you. I opted for anti-glare b/c it smudges less easily, and I generally prefer matte finishes on every monitor I own...
