Just wanted to share that i installed a JETech crystal clear glass screen protector on my new IPP 2020 11" and it went flawlessly. Follow the included directions and you'll get a perfect install, very happy! Bought it on eBay for $12.99 and came with two.

I must second your good review - for every iOS device I've had over the past few years I unfailingly order a JETech glass screen protector, and they've always been awesome; very well priced as well. I used to use the matte plastic protectors - they work OK, but I love how the screen keeps its sharpness with tempered glass. Highly recommended!

I always go matte for tablets because of the glare. Most cases have 1 or 2 angles and it is never the right angle to reduce glare.

Good to know. I assume they hide fingerprints and smudges well?

I never cared for iPad screen protectors until I picked up a 12.9” iPad. It seems to really show off the smudges ?

I just got my iPad a couple days ago. Within a few minutes, there were smudges everywhere. I’m Italian, it’s gonna happen. Anyway, do screen protectors work better at preventing smudges than the original screen? Aren’t they both oleophobic?

this is why i use matte screens. Reduced glare and hardly any finger prints. If there are any,easy to wipe off. The only negative is slightly less sharp screen but totally worth it.

I have a new iPad Pro 11" which I plan to use for drawing & graphics with the Apple Pencil 2. Several Procreation vloggers on YouTube note that they use matte screens, both to reduce glare and also to have a drawing surface that is closer to the texture of paper than of slippery glass. What brand of matte screen do you use and does it meet that challenge?

I can’t compare to the very popular paper like screen protectors but I’ve always bought icarez for my tablets whenever I need a matte screen protector. It sounds like writing on paper and maybe provides a bit of paper like feel. I have nothing to compare to in terms of writing but icarez is super cheap. For me it’s mainly to get rid of the annoying glare which does wonders. I’d give it a go. I paid 11$ CAD and it comes with 2. If you are going to get it. Keep in mind it doesn’t cover maybe 1-2mm all around the screen to give room for your cases.
