SO i just got my PS anti glare HD. It comes with 2 front facing films, and a pre install film. after comparing it with another ip4 there is a slight difference. the PS film is a little grainy, but not to bad. THe colors are slightly dulled. My favorite part of this film is the feel. its very smooth. It feels better then the screen itself.A down side is that its kind of a dust magnet. i wipe dust off, then a few seconds later it finds its way back on the screen. if you really like anti glare, and a real smooth feel this would be a great film, but keep in mind the colors aren't as rich.

I think I am going to order the PS crystal and compare, I am not diggin the slight diminish in the screen resolution.

I have a few pictures i took, but the quality isn't that great, and there is dust on the phone. sorry guys but this is the best I could do.

it doesn't glide as much as the anti glare. the anti glare is really smooth.

please please please come back and tell us your experience about the matte vs crystal comparison

I ordered SGP oleophobic based on reviews, but I would really like to go back to using a matte PS shield if the resolution/color hit is "not that bad"

how was the feel of the crystal
The crystal feels GREAT but the only downside is the thing is an oil/fingerprint MAGNET. But when I show people the phone they can't tell here's a screen protector on. The clarity is just as good as bare screen but be prepared to become an obsessive hand washer.

My SGP oleophobic is a fingerprint and oil magnet. I am returning it to SGP and going to try the PS Anti-Glare
are the finger prints and oil easily washable? i have heard people said the SGP is easily washed off, and the PS crystal wasn't. can anyone vouch for that.

"washed off" yes, but a simple wipe on a t-shirt doesn't work

I received my set today and tested one of the films with my incase slider. No luck.:( The film bubbled up on the side and me having OCD with my phone, took it off. I'll wait till my snap inCase comes in the mail and put it on again...Yes you lose some screen quality but I think I have made a good purchase in the long run. Glad to see other people liking the film.

Either going to the store itself (Burbank, CA) or ordering from their website. Or...waiting for amazon to stock them. Lol.
WOw there's a store in Burbank??

Had a SGP Crystal, but couldn't stand the fingerprints and oil. So i went with the PS anti-glare and love it. Smooth scrolling, and very little oil and fingerprints make me happy with my purchase. It does take a little away from the screen, but oh well i can live with it. If you are all about the Retina Display and that is a big reason why you bought the iphone 4, then don't get the anti-glare. If you can live with losing a little clarity to save time on constanly cleaning your phone, then definitely go with PS anti-glare.

yeah i ditched the PS anti glare for the PS crystal cause i didnt like the screen diminishing. i did like the feel smooth scrolling and anti finger print as well. BUT the PS crystal was a fingerprint magnet and fingerprints didnt wipe off with just the wipe of my shirtl so i ditched that and now have the SGP oleophobic, and that is 10x better then PS. also uts cheaper then the PS, and when i wanted a refund for both PS, the only refunded the price (19.95) they would not refund my shipping charges which were 6.05 EACH so i lost $12 + had to pay $4 to ship both back. thats just AWFUL. sgp said they would refund shipping and original cost if i wasnt happy! so SGP > PS

I ordered mine from ebay. $35 for the 3 piece set, shipped.

It was going to be $45 with shipping from power support directly.

So I say check out eBay, depending on your location. There may be cheaper shipping within the USA.
