    Just because you got both, doesn't mean you should use both, especially if they sent both just for the option of choosing.

    Personal preference. Use which ever one you want.

    Really wouldn't know though because I've never had a screen protector.

    I recommend putting on the matte first. You already know what the crystal clear will look like. Put the matte on first. If you don't like that then take it off and put the clear on.

    My personal preference is for matte protectors. They hide fingerprints and cut down on glare.

    I HATE matte.

    It ruins the screens crisp quality and replaces it with a big static mess.

    That has not been my experience. Even the cheap $4 for 3 matte protectors on eBay have been fine.

    You could try the matte first to see if you like it. If you don't you still have the crystal clear one available.
