    Got this in the mail today and went ahead and slapped it on.

    The cutout are spot-on and though it's close, it doesn't effect the front facing camera. Also, I don't appear to have the blemishes about the cutouts like some are reporting.

    For those familiar or have experiences with the Power Support Anti Glare film, you believe these where the same.

    Overall "I" am satisfied. You do lose a slight bit of clarity, but "I" prefer the anti-glare properties and the smooth textured feel of this type of film.

    I was waiting for Power Support's version, but guess I don't need to now.

    Looks really good man. Thanks for the pics and comparisons. A lot of us didn't want to affect the clarity (myself included). But I think a lil sacrifice like what this shows doesn't hurt it at much as i thought it would. I'm kinda regreting not getting the anti glare instead of the oleo.

    I had that film before and replaced it with Oleophobic because I want to maximize using the retina display. Both are great screen protectors IMHO, just a matter of personal preference.

    I ran the PS similar one on my 3G and loved the anti-glare and anti-fingerprint properties. However, it takes away too much from the screen for me on the iPhone4. Looking at my 3G now kinda hurts my eyes. As long as you like it, that's all that matters.

    I got the same screen protector but imo you lose a lot of clarity. I used an antiglare screen protector for the iPhone 3GS as well but I'm thinking hard about replacing the screen protector because I feel like I'm losing too much of the retina display just to have a matte screen. I installed it last night and already I'm considering switching it...

    I was VERY impressed with it at first but within a day or two i had a scratch going right across the screen. Right now its been about 10 days since i got it and it looks as bad as my Zagg did after 3 months! I guess the self healing properties of the zagg and others alike really do work, this SGP Oleo just seems to love to show its scars

    Looks nicely cut and clean but it's grainy...takes away from the retina screen.

    I'd rather have finger prints (which can be easily whipped off) and a clear screen than a grainy one and no finger prints. My personal preference of course...

    I am conflicted...

    I used these on my 3G and 3GS and loved them. Reduced glare, felt nice (like paper), and almost no FPs.

    BUT, the iP4 has such a beautiful screen, I do not want to reduce the clarity. I may have to get one when I get fed up with the glare.

    I did get one of their Oleophobic covers, but have not yet installed it. I am a little chicken, for one, since installation can be challenging. Also, I have seen some negative comments such as FPs not coming off, etc.

    Will wait and see...

    Did it come with a back screen protector?? I cannot tell from the pictures.

    Also, could you post a link where you purchased it?

    Thanks and it looks great!!

    It doesn't come with a back protector. Only 2 screen protectors, a microfiber cloth and a squeegee.

    You can buy one at sgpstore.com

    Good post, I bought this same SS but I'm still a little curious with PS's and the whole "HD" thing they got going on. We shall have to wait and see.

    I'm very happy with these. Like the person above who ordered, mine came with two front films only, the microfiber cloth and the little squeegee.

    Of course they do change the appearance of the screen just a bit but it's not bad at all. I would rather not have fingerprints and a screen that looks a tiny bit grainy then have it covered in fingerprints all the time. As you can see in the picture on the right, the screen still looks good. I have a bumper on my phone that also arrived Thursday free from Apple.

    I ordered mine very early Monday morning and they were in my mailbox Thursday afternoon. I paid for the 2-3 day shipping, they shipped out on Tuesday.

    Not at all, it's perfect. I've also taken the bumper off a few times pushing it to the back of the phone when removing.

    It is. I think I like this brand much better than Power Support. I also like the look of the film on the phone when the screen is off.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing. I think I'll be picking up one of these. Good job with the application. Not a flaw noticeable!
