    hey guys, i know that many of people here are very aware of the strengths and weaknesses on different screen protectors but i figured that some people do not and i hope to help some of those people..

    since it would take too long to write everything I made a video... hope it's helpful..

    i will be doing some more later on, on some eBay cases.. and some amazon cases as well..

    anyhow here is the link

    Good review. I thought Schosche was pronounced as "Sko sha" though, no?

    Well the name is a lot like "Porsche." And people pronounce that as "Porsh" or "Porsha" either way. So I'm going to pronounce it as "Skosha." :D

    Cool company name, regardless.

    Nice review. I'm glad you like the SGP one the best because that's what I ordered before watching the video, lol. I went with the SGP Incredible Shield Ultra Matte, hopefully it's nice.

    I almost got the full kit like you did, but got nervous about fingerprints from what others said, even though you didn't have issues. I just got the oleophobic front for now, and am thinking about getting the Zagg rear protector since I can't find a rear by itself anywhere else.

    I'm just glad I know I got the best front protector since that is what really matters. I had come close to getting the Zagg earlier, and then the Wrapsol, so you're review was very helpful. :D

    Very awesome and helpful review. You convinced me to buy the Scoche and unltra fine SGP. FYI your screensaver on your desktop is very distracting in the background.:p

    I tried pronouncing Schoshe and two nearby people said God bless you.

    Nice one dude.

    Because of you I ordered the SGP front (Oleophobic) and rear cover.

    i really wonder if the Oleophobic and the Ultra are not the same thing because my SGP is so good at rejecting fingerprints.. i couldn't imagine being any better at it :D i'm very happy with it

    Got the Scosche Band Edge, black with a clear middle.

    This is probably the best bumper you can buy right now. Hearing about the possible scratching on the Apple bumbers made me want to wait, but browsing through a local 'The Source by Circuit City' here in Toronto, they had the Band Edge in stock.

    I was a bit skeptical at first but I really didn't have any choice (wanted to protect my newly bought iPhone as soon as possible.)

    I've installed and removed the bumper about 7 times now and there is no sign of scratching whatsoever. I credit the black rubbers surrounding the polycarbonate clear middle. It prevents the polycarbonate from touching the aluminum bezel. This is probably the best feature of this product.

    The bumber also fits very snugly when installed. It's also not difficult to re-install.

    One miss though, the rubber buttons make it a little difficult to push the iPhone buttons beneath them. But not a deal breaker for me. They also do not scratch the silver buttons on the iPhone.

    The big SCOSCHE logo on the right side is actualy a classy one...I really don't mind it at all either.

    This, in combination with the ZAGG on both sides is perfect mix in my opinion. I opted to install the front screen protector that comes with the Scorsche and leave the ZAGG installed on the back. My iPhone 4 is a looker! :)

    Do you know if either the Zagg or SGP are thinner than the Wrapsol? I got the wrapsol wet and it turned out too thick in conjunction with my otterbox defender case.

    Thanks.

    SGP is thinner than wrapsol. You'll be happy with it.

    What source did you go to, I need a case and can't wait a month for my bumper and this one seems better than the bumper for looks and protection.


    He said it in post #13 "LotsAWater"
