    The prob is it doesnt have a cut where the ear speaker is so you wont be able to hear anyone.

    I made a cut in there after realizing that haha. This screen protector is the best since it doesn't affect the quality of the retina display so I don't want to take it off.

    Are there any screen protectors that dot affect the quality of the display?

    I bought a bunch of them on ebay for like $1-2
    And no the screen protectors are clear so they wont effect the screen output.

    What is the name of the screen protectors you bought on ebay? I've tried a number of them on my old iP4, all clear, from the cheapies to the expensive, and they all diminished the quality of the retina display. The better/expensive ones not so much. For most, they probably wouldn't even notice, but I can still see the difference. And to me it does make a difference. I just don't put a screen protector on mine anymore. Although, it would give me peace of mind, even though the 4S screen is scratch proof/resistance.

    I'm also looking for a screen protector that is like what comes on the phone when it is new. I've used Zagg in the past but they are kinda thick. I like the look and feel of whatever it is that comes on the new phone. Anyone find anything like that?

    I found one at Best Buy that has the appearance and feel of what comes on the new phone. It's the rocketfish mobile iPhone 4 Screen Protector. The only problem is it is noticeably smaller than the screen, maybe 2 or 3 mm all the way around. Otherwise it looks nice and doesn't change the look of the retina display.

    Actually, if you plan on using this screen protector with a case, it fits perfectly for the Incase Silder Case for iPhone. The screen protector is just small enough to not touch the case, which in my experience can sometimes cause the screen protector to peel at the edges.
