    Okay. I had a few bucks burning a hole in my pocket so I thought I'd try some Power Support screen protectors available at my local Apple store.

    Last week I applied the anti-glare and today I swapped it out for the crystal.

    I think the anti-glare feels better (it's a little slippery compared to the crystal) and it's damn near impossible to see any fingerprints on the screen.

    The crystal is SUPER CLEAR but it is "stickier" than the anti-glare when actually using it. My finger doesn't slide across the screen as easily.

    But having now used both, I find the crystal protector more enjoyable. The screen is brighter and much more clear (not as diffused as the anti-glare).

    I don't want to start another "should I get matte or glossy?" screen debate :rolleyes: but I think I'd have to recommend the crystal option at this point.

    At $14.95 I think either one is a mandatory purchase if you own an iPhone. :)

    i've used both as well. I hate the crystal because it is a fingerprint magnet and its next to impossible to watch a video on the bus or in the office without seeing a reflection of something on my screen.

    The Anti-Glare is (IMO) by far WAY better than the crystal. It feels better and looks better.

    I hate screen protectors. I don't think they are even necessary given the quality of the iPhone screen.

    Well, glass is obviously better than plastic but I have managed to scratch every last piece of electronic screen I've ever touched (iPod Nano, iPod video, Palm Pilot, Sony Vaio, Toshiba smartphone...). For $15, why wouldn't you put a condom over the $299 screen? :confused:

    I don't have a great answer besides, just take care of it and hope for the best. I bought the iPhone for a specific experience and I don't want to sacrifice it.

    I love the anti-glare, sure the screen isn't as great but I love the fact that I can't see fingerprints.

    Plus it feels better, doesn't it?
