    I happens to have a chance to compare two protector screens side by side. Left: some $20 samuri brand protector bought off Amazon. Right: HD anti-glare film.

    Probably not as apparent in the picture than in real life, the image on iphone with power support seems washed out. Also, with the power support film, there are many tiny color distortion apparent all over the screen, making the image not as sharp as the original. Not to mention the "Anti-glare feature" does nothing more than making the glaring light source even destructive by blurring out more of the screen.

    In summary, besides the easy installation, there's nothing good I can say about this product. I am very disappointed and will probably dump it and go commando afterward.

    example of the anti-glare

    Only thing it does well is that it doesn't attract finger print. It also makes fingers easier to glide across the screen than without a protector, a con to me but you might judge other wise.

    Apparently you had no idea what antiglare films are like nor were you really looking for one. There's nothing wrong with the PS film-- it's just what those kinds of films are like. That said, it's why I don't like antiglare films either. Wouldn't want to dim and blur the display just for less fingerprints. Not worth it, especially on the new display.

    Is it me or is the left one looking kinda weird as if there are "lines" running down the screen as a result of the protector?

    Look at the WEATHER icon. They look different.

    That is what anti glare is....Sacrifice some clarity to soften reflections and minimize fingerprints

    BTW the protector on the left is a piece of junk

    That's ignorance on your part. Antiglare film is never a good thing.

    I use the crystal Power Support film, and it's fantastic. Besides a tiny, neglible amount of extra friction, and slightly more prone to getting covered in fingerprints.. It's basically invisible. Compared to others I've seen, where it's apparent to see or feel that they're there, this is an awesome product.

    And that others film you've got on looks ****. What the hell is it?


    *Edit*

    Ah, now I know.. You don't actually have two iPhones, the one on the left is cardboard. Seriously?

    Different time, and for some reason you don't have any coverage on the real phone.

    It's your fault that you didn't research.

    I happen to like the anti glares because I don't get any finger prints. Sure the screen clarity is reduced just a bit but the convenience of not having to wipe off finger prints like on the crystal films is worth it to me.

    I have anti glares on all of my iPhones here and always will.

    Agreed. The one on the left has all those line going through the graphics where the anti glare on the right doesn't.

    I seriously don't think the one on the left is a real phone. It looks like cardboard, and the time doesn't even match up.

    The one on the left is real, it's just those cheap films found in this thread.

    I ordered a set from that thread and took it off a few days later because of that orange peel effect that you see in the picture that the OP has posted in this thread.

    The phone on the left looks like its rubbery and has the orange peel effect like all those Zagg IS's. Also look at the cutout for the home button on the phone on the left, look how big it is. That just proves how high quality PS films are.

    Antiglare for the win!

    Sorry for the bad photo, it was taken on my original iPhone.

    iPhone 4 on the left, bumper, 32GB iPhone 3GS middle, iSkin solo, 8GB iPhone 3GS right, iSkin Revo 2.

    I'd rather have the antiglare one than the one to the left. Just saying.

    The only thing I do not like about the crystal is that I don't get the oleophobic coating. If PS makes one with that, crystal I go!
