    I'm used their products a long time. I'm trying to pick which film would be best. I want the best clarity on the screen and the back too if they end up not using cutouts for the camera.

    I've used Matte on my 3GS and I'm not sure if I want to stick that on my iPhone 4

    i think anti-glare will be a no go for me this time

    think it will take away from the stunning screen res

    I used the anti-glare on my first gen for years, but there is no way I'm putting it on the new one. I'm not going to take away from the beautiful display.

    I've used their products from the very beginning with the 2G on through til now. I even have a 3GS crystal film on my iPhone 4. Work great, but not a perfect fit. I just hate to wait til the 24th of July when these ship!:eek:

    So far this is helping me a lot. I think I should try crystal film. I slapped my 3GS PS film on my iphone 4 until this comes out. It'll help some. :) I'll play with my old extra matte film so it'll be a practice with the new iphone 4 screen being so nice now.

    I'm guessing that its to see it better when in outside during a bright sun. Hmm.

    Oh... meh.. I wonder if a company will ever be able to make a matte screen that doesnt give the grain/snow effect.

    Which one is the most matte possible? I'm about to get my very first iphone, and I absolutely cannot stand reflections. Glossy screens give me instant eye fatigue pain. So I would much rather err on the side of TOO matte and TOO anti-glare. So which film is the best at removing reflections? How good and complete of a job does it actually do against reflections? For instance, the current anti-glare macbook pro screens are still too reflective for me, while the old G4 powerbook matte screens are perfect for me. Can any of these iphone films offer that level of non-reflection?

    I'll be getting the crystal since I always use my phone on the lowest possible brightness.

    Matte was pretty good before. On my 3GS. I like Matte the best with macbooks with the matte screens. Its better for colors and stuff. Better for photoshopping stuff and for whatnot.

    The HD film is specially formulated better viewing of the higher resolution iPhone 4 because the regular antiglare meant for the 3G(S) would have diminished the screen quality.

    Hmm.. different people seem to be getting different answers via email.

    Was told that the front/back is not available until a unknown date sometime this summer, and if you pre-order now it will just be for 2 fronts.

    Can't wait for the crystal to start shipping in a few weeks. I've been a huge fan of theirs after using one for the 3Gs that held up for more than half a year of use. SGP and other brands really have nothing on them once you compare side by side.

    I second vincenz. Steinheil do not compare. Not to mention the great customer service of SGP.

    The CS named at Terrance in power support knows everything right. They'll definitely will include the front and the rear glass films. And ofcourse, they def. will have cutouts for the camera. I still think though, the front screen probably doesnt need a cutout there. Theres no flash on the front, so probly doesnt matter. The Flash is the best part giving all the blue flashing. Im keeping my shipping film from the box is still on there, and im sure thats the same issue everyone notices for other films you can buy yet or some.

    I've ordered my HD Glare kit because I've always read through about my 3GS info in the site again, and the HD comes with Matte, so this will be good. I really like it alot. Very clear too. I'm ready! It'll be worth soon.

    Also, if anyone needs something temp until your need films are coming, I did this. I used my 3GS extra screen film matte on my iphone 4. They dont fit *perfect* but it fits really close, and it'll make it safe I've had it on there for 2 weeks now and it i dont think you can even notice it. Try it. Better than nothing on there. :)

    Power Support- :D

    I have the PS anti glare film for my iPad and it makes the screen a little blurry, you can see a little of the fine grains in it. Therefore, unless they did something advance with the HD anti glare film, I would also suggest getting the regular crystal film. I wanted to take my iPad film off but didn't wanna write off the 25 bucks I spend.

    I've pre-ordered the Crystal films. I have one on my ipod touch, and it's amazing. Completely clear, and I can't even tell that it's there. I'm pretty confident in Power Support in general, but I'm not a matte/anti-glare person.
