Well so far so good. i like how well the screen protector is doing. I decided to take some more pics but this time a real close up so you guys can see just how much or I should say how less the Anti Glare HD affects the retina. Its still really good in my opinion.

Well, I was waiting for more reviews on the Anti Glare from Power Support, but its taking some time for some people to receive theirs. So I decided to stop by the actual Power Support store in Burbank, CA and pick one up myself (since my friend wanted one anyways).

First off, they DON'T have their store hours listed on their website. I went there yesterday but they are CLOSED on the weekends. As a business, who closes on both days? The place looks like a small shack of a building and its safe to assume a lot of their business is done either online (and was contracting with apple).

On to the screen protector. I had the SGP Oleophoebic on my phone before. I love the clarity of it, but I hated the finger prints and oily smudges. Even though its resistant coating, its not resistant enough for me. The Anti Glare HD is really good. I like it a lot. There is a little grainy-ness I already knew with getting this that you were going to lose some clarity on the phone, so I don't mind that. You can't have the best of both worlds, so its a hit or miss depending on your preference.

Was thinking about heading down there to pick one up, but am an hour away. Do you know the store hours during the week? I can't get through to them ...

Would also like to check out the anti-glare vs. crystal in-store if they have it on display and have them install it.

Wow i might put my anti glare instead. I have the crystal film now.
Ditto. I have the Anti-Glare sitting in the packaging.

I love the clarity of the Crystal but oh my God is it a fingerprint and oil MAGNET. Being the freak that I am, sacrificing the clarity might be an option for me since the only way to get the smudges off the Crystal are with a microfiber cloth and this Geek Squad Black Tie screen cleaner I got a while back.

On a side note, for the PS Crystal if you get too much oily residue on the thing the accuracy of the touch screen goes WAY down.

Decided to eat some fries and Wonton chicken tacos at Applebees and I noticed from the time I started eating to when I finished that my touch screen wasn't as responsive from all the oil.


Or maybe it was because of the 2 for 1 drafts they we're having... :rolleyes:

God I love Applebees!

I mentioned that already in my review. Its still really good, just not perfectly clear like crystal clear films.
I just managed to order a pair of SGP Oleophobics for 13.99 + free shipping on amazon so we'll see how it fairs up against the PS Crystal I already have on.

I had the SGP before hand. You can see it in my pics above. Its not bad. I love the clarity. I would use it over PS Crystal because its a really good film and its cheaper in price point. I also bought it amazon for 13.99 w/free shipping. lol.

From all the money they make, I would think they would spend more on location, store design and such..

Yeah I definitely want to try the SGP when it comes but I really don't want to throw the PS away... I just made a thread about ways to preserve used screen protectors so maybe someone will have a way of keeping it good enough to use again if I ever decide to go back to it.

Amazon will eventually carry them. They currently carry PS's iPad anti-glare film for $24.95, no tax, and free shipping.

They don't make them there..... they just sell them and ship them from there. Think of it as an orphanage. ;)

I had the SGP Steinheil EX Crystal set on my phone originally because the PS was available yet and I have to say I am glad I bought the PS set. Out of 4 films 3 of the SGP's has problems sticking around the edges and around the camera on the back.

The PS went on perfect and I love the antiglare... no finger prints, your finger slides easier on the screen, and well much easier to see the phone outside.



To the OP: how did you get the little icons under your folders on springboard?

It's called glyph board. Go to Mrgan.com/gb/

EDIT: Sorry, my bad. Didn't check first. Pretty sure those are from the emoji symbols..

I did the exact same, went to the store 1/2 hour before 6pm last night. They keep the doors locked so just knock if no one appears to be behind the counter. The guy that put on my anti glare also said the crystal for ip4 front has a coating that suppose to help with finger prints so I ended up pick up both packs. I haven't had the chance to look at the crystal since the anti glare is already on. I might swap it out this weekend as I'm undecided on the anti glare so far. It does have a smoother surface (less grainy) than the ip3g version but I'm noticing in direct sunlight, there seems to be a slight haze to it.
