    Is anyone having issues with it? I installed two of them on my iPhone 5 and both cloud up and make the touchscreen hard to use after about an hour.

    this. I would go to one of those ghost armor stands in the mall. I am pretty sure they guarantee the work

    I've tried over the years to add screen protectors on my phones, pdas etc.
    In 100% of the time, I was unable to get it on straight, or bubble free or avoid having a speck or hair under the screen protector.

    To that point, I get ghost armor put on for me. Not the cheapest but it looks great and they have a kiosk outside of my local apple store.

    Unless they changed with the newest phone, the cloudy look should go away unless you used way too much soap. You literally only need a little soap. It should be a drop that's about 25% of the size of a dime. That's what as worked for me.

    I had one professionally installed, its the first time I have used a screen protector but it seems to have been done well. It does add a bit more grip, which can be a small hassle when swiping on games. But overall its a really good product.

    I've installed a bunch of them over the years, but lately I've been using the HD and it seems to be much easier to install. You should consider it on your screen, and the Extreme on the rest of your phone.

    We can't speak for the Extreme line, but typically with the HD screens any tiny bubbles and screen haziness will go away within 48 hours. Just give it a little time.

    So have you tried bashing it with a bowling ball or hitting it with a hammer like they show in their promo video? I just find it very hard to believe that they can do that with a .2mm thin shield to absorb all that energy.

    Did you have Ghost Armor put on the iPhone 5? I heard that the pieces were not the right shape and it was bad etc. I love the Ghost Armor on my iPad and was planning on getting it on my iPhone screen but now I am not sure. Thanks!

    Thanks for all the feedback. I am going to let it sit. I've installed several HD and Regular ones with Geek Squad and they all work nice. I may take your suggestion and return this if it doesn't clear up and go with the HD one. As for Ghost Armor, I haven't heard of it.

    They install it for you and if anything crazy happens in the first week they will redo it for you. It also has a lifetime warranty (pretty sure). They have them at both malls near me pretty close to the Apple Store but they don't only cover Apple screens.

    I really doubt the ability of such a screen protecter, how can it withstand so much ? Really boggles my mind :confused:
