    I currently have an InvisibleShield on my i4S. I decided to order the HD one last night as I am tired of this one yellowing and the orange peel effect.

    My question is: Is the HD version a lot better than the normal version?

    I have used Invisible Shields in the past & for the most part end up pulling them off after a while because of discoloration or peeling. I have an HD version on my iPad 3 since it travels out to jobsites and construction trailers with me a lot for work. The HD version is like using a completely different product. It's smooth, responsive, and somewhat fingerprint resistant. The HD version is a huge improvement IMO.

    I agree. I've used both and the HD is miles ahead of the original. I wouldn't go back.

    Yes, the HD version is better though I wouldn't recommend Zagg at all. If you are choosing between the two though, the HD is the way to go.

    Why would you not recommend Zagg at all?

    I didn't find it any better. I had the HD on my iPhone 4 for over a year. I had to switch it out every couple of months for a new one. It constantly yellowed and got all discolored. Now of course some of it was probably from my makeup and the phone touching my cheek when I talk, but I've never had the issue with any other screen protector.

    They do get rid of the orange peel effect with the HD. It's got a nice feel to it. I now have a Spigen Glas.tR on my iPhone 5 and I will never go back to a non-glass screen shield for iPhone again. I have the Invisible Shield HD on my iPad 4 and like it on that. I don't have any discoloration worries with that device and the quality is nice.

    I will agree with you on the yellowing. This will be my 4th InvisibleShield due to yellowing and I ordered HD this time as I though HD doesn't yellow.

    Terrible feel, peeling around the edges, picks up a ton of lint, easy to peel off if caught on a case, and overall just a bad screen protector in my opinion. My fingers never slide across them and they don't really protect any better or worse than a typical 10 cent one from eBay.

    If you are going to invest 10-15 bucks in one then get a Power Support or SGP one. They are just as good but don't have that rubbery feel. Plus they don't pick up lint around the edges or discolor. Plus they are a dry install. Wet installs are time consuming and don't even look better.

    I have switched to the glass screen protectors. While they cost a little more (though there are coupon codes around the google to get them cheaper) they seem to be more durable and feel just like the bare screen. Yes they are a little thicker but with a better feel it doesn't really matter. Also they don't show fingerprints as much and the ones I have tried (Bodyguardz Pure and the SGP Glas.t/Glas.tr) don't even show scratches or damage. I treated a Pure like complete crap on my iPhone 4 and purposely tried to scratch/destroy it. It took multiple drops to even crack it and even then it was only around the edge. The protector was still intact.

    Just my opinion. Not a fan of Zagg at all. Overpriced and the product just feel cheap.
