    I tried to search, but couldn't find an answer... But does this mess up the retina display on the iPhone 4? I know it made it somewhat blurry for the older models, but I just want to know how the display is for the iPhone 4.

    It does blur out the screen somewhat but I have it and would rather it blur it out a bit than deal with the plain glass screen covered in fingerprints!

    Ahh. That's what I was worried about. Guess I'll just stick with my BodyGuardz front.

    My sentiments exactly. I picked up mine @ the Apple store yesterday. I love it. I noticed that I had a scratch on my screen before even installing the shield and I do not even know where it come from so I will be definitely rocking the protector daily.

    I have an HD Anti-Glare too but will put on later since I don't want to waste the cystal screen protector I just put on.

    I just took my second one off. I have used the HD AG for a few weeks and then went back to crystal. I get tired of the fingerprints and try the AG again. Ultimately for me, its not worth the loss in clarity. I like it for a few days then I see my wife's or a friend's and realize my looks fuzzy. I just installed a PS Crystal this afternoon and have a ton of fingerprints already but its worth it. Perfectly clear and protected.

    It does add some grain to the screen, however the lack of fingerprints and the way your finger just glides across it makes the anti glare totally worth it for me.

    The "glide" is really what I missed. I used the Bodyguardz for almost a month solid after my PS got completely screwed due to me being a complete idiot and not taking care of my technology.

    I put on one of the PS AG that I had in my bucket of crap due to being completely irritated with the stickiness of the Bodyguardz trying to play Devil may Cry 4 and Ridge Racer. I really have no clue as to why I didn't just put the PS back on in the first place. No idea why I went with the Bodyguardz. Prorbably because the Dry Apply was the latest and greatest at the time.

    Anyway, despite the minor loss in clarity the phone still looks gorgeous without having to constantly wipe it on my pants to clean it off. Oddly the screen still looks better than every other phone out there, even with the minor degragation of clarity.

    some people say it completely ruins the the screen but it doesnt , it does make it a little bit blurry but it still looks much better than the 3gs screen, i like them for there ability to not show tons of fingerprints and ease to install.

    Funny, I actually bought a set yesterday. The graininess added is less than the older version of the PowerSupport anti-glare for the iPhone 3G/3GS if you've ever used one of those. Feels nice and is very fingerprint resistant.

    Installed mine yesterday and got what I expected and hoped for... Glare-free and fingerprint-free surface that is smooth to navigate. My hands are obnoxiously clammy (much to my wife's chagrin) so my fingers tend to stick to the bare glass unless they are perfectly dry. The PS HD is nice and smooth and my fingers don't stick at all. I'm happy to sacrifice ~5% (at most - its quite minimal) of the screen quality to enjoy the freedom from giving my iPhone constant microfiber massages.

    hey everyone with the front Anti glare on , what do you use for the back of the phone ? I just tried the Powersupport crystal back and its really nice, not as rubbery like the zagg's

    It does blur the screen a bit and at first I thought it was ok but decided to take it off. It just doesn't seem like a retina display with it on. You should just get a crystal shield.

    I use a Power Support crystal on the back, I'm wishing PS made the anti-glare for the back too.
