    Just for anyone wondering how the iPhone 5 looks with the SGP Ultra Crystal screen protector.

    You basically can't see it. The phone looks and functions as if it's naked. I had the same screen protector on my black iPhone 4 as well. So far, no one has ever noticed that either phone had a screen protector on it until I told them.

    :cool:

    Looks nice, how was it to install? From the post below, sounds difficult. My last phone was a Blackberry so i had a best skins ever on there. That's a wet install so it was easy to move around.

    It looks like a dry install, so you can use the hinge method.
    Also, do it in a steamy room so that the dust doesn't settle as easy on the screen and always have tape near by to lift up the screen protector again and then use more tape to dab at the area with bubbles.

    Very true, steam up the bathroom (hot water through shower head is the quickest).

    Also helpful if you got a can of compressed air handy, very cheap on Amazon or eBay.

    I got the same screen protector as Power support is still not selling them....i'm quite happy with it, it's indistinguishable from the PowerSupport film i had on my i4.....

    Why have the back films not been made yet? I would like to protect the back as well....not just the screen, ESPECIALLY since the aluminum will scratch far easier than glass....

    Subjective matter. If you have experience installing screen protectors it's no big deal. Obviously, some people have problems installing any screen protector.

    That's beautiful. I was nearly drooling on every picture.

    It almost looks like nothing is installed! Well done!

    I just ordered my Ultra Crystal last night and should be in the mail by tomorrow!

    That looks really nice! I wish they had protectors for the back out. Does anyone recommend any?

    You have a discoloration on the bottom of your device. You should start a thread and question the build quality of your phone. Threaten to return it as well.

    Pretty much make a 'hinge' with tape to hold the screen protector in place

    So I know a lot of people are loyal to PowerSupport and waiting on their screen protectors.

    Is it really worth the wait?
    Isn't SGP practically the same thing at $14 shipped?

    Thanks for posting the link. It worked great and looks terrific! So much easier than when I installed one on my blackberry years ago.

    Looks good! I have it on my old 4S's and they are all scratched up but at least it saved my screen. I think the 5 is much tougher screen but I am still going to protect it just in case. Thanks!

    Oh man! Sorry dude.

    Like other's have said it's a dry install... and if you use a good technique, it's pretty painless. I install my screen protectors exactly like SGP suggests in their install video. Works every time for me.

    I wish SGP would put out a matching UC back protector as well. I'd pick one up in a second. For now I'm putting on a premium leather backing from Valentine Goods (www.valentinegoods.com). It shipped today and should arrive tomorrow or Wednesday. I'll post pics once it's installed.

    Thanks! You'll love it.

    :D

    I wouldn't wait. If you do enough reading online you'll see that people who use either are VERY happy with their choice, and that people who've used both don't see much of a difference... ie: Both are awesome.

    Go for the SGP. You won't regret it.

    Although not a fan - Zagg has them. Front and back protection. Got them at AT&T store Fri. Couldn't wait to rip off the Zagg screen protector once my SGP got here. The SGP is just like a Power Support screen only thinner(?) and will show micro scratches. But overall, I like the SGP.

    SAME EXACT sentiment here. Except I couldn't wait. I ripped it off after a mere few hours and tossed it in the trash. Ordered a SGP Oleophobic protector last night. Can't wait for it to come. I don't feel good with the screen exposed. Going caseless as usual though.

    HAH! Me three! My Zagg shield stayed on for 4 hours. Ripped it off, and ordered an Ultra Thin Air case from Amazon. Comes with a free SGP shield too! ;)

    What is the best way to clean off fingerprints occasionally with this protector? Just a microfiber cloth or can you use LCD cleaner?

    I have this on my new white iPhone as well. First screen protector I've managed to install without one spec of dust/bubbles. Although its slightly off center, I can deal with it. I did try to lift it with tape, and re-center it, but it pulled the top film off instead. So whatever. Its on, flawless, just slightly off center maybe 1/2 a millimeter or so. No one can even tell its there. Perfect. :D

    Screen protector came with my Ultra Air series from Spigen. ;)

    I just got my Ultra Crystal from an authorized SGP store on eBay.

    How do I know if this is the "fixed" one?
