    imho the quality between the two is pretty close, but SGP is cheaper but has terrible customer service so that's your call. For a cheap back option check out bestskinsever.com (not sure about Canada shipping, though). It's the rubbery type like Zagg which I don't like for the front but shouldn't be a problem on the back.

    I put a BestSkinsEver on the back. I don't mind the orange peel effect on the back. It feels smooth, just has that look. Definitly worth it for the price at least.

    Get the sgp oleophobic! You'll never look back. Get it on eBay for $13.95 and free shipping

    Search for sgp iPhone 4

    Should be electronic deals or Youll love this deal for the sellers.

    Damn. Shipping is expensive for ps. I had the sgp oleo before but didn't like it after a while because of it's oily smudges it leaves behind. I picked up the ps anti glare and I love it.

    I kinda feel bad for people who don't have easy access to ps products now that apple stopped carrying them. Makes me want to go to the store and snag a few and help out a few macrumors-ers here. Lol.

    Don't pay for shipping! eBay!

    Better customer service too! Had 2 bad screens and they sent me a brand new package + prepaid envelope.

    I beg to differ on the customer service point...

    I ordered a leather skin for my 4 and a screen protector for a 3G. Shipped out the next day, and was promptly lost by the post office. After getting the runaround for a week from the post office, thinking it was theirs to deal with, I called SGP who did some investigation of their own, called me back a few hours later and gave me a full refund for that order. I had ordered something else from them and had already received it by that point, and am COMPLETELY satisfied by their customer service.

    I can't say anything negative about PS, but it's ALL good (product and service) in SGP land, for me.

    That's good to hear. I haven't had any CS experiences with SGP at all, positive or negative, but most of the talk on here is on the negative side.

    Yeah...I guess that's why I felt compelled to comment on my positive experience. I was truly surprised when they called me back so soon.

    BTW, I got an Ultra Matte IS, which comes with a Crystal screen protector, and it looks slick as hell. Combined with a bumper, I get killer reception, too.

    PS or SGP?

    Yes I am torn as well. I have the Zagg right now and it is awful...I was thinking about either trying the Anti-glare HD from PS or I know that SGP has a new ultra thin film anti-glare coming out (Although I dont know when since they have just released a beta version out). Should I wait for SGP (does anyone know when this is coming out?) or should I go for PS? I think I am going to go with some sort of AG since I hate finger prints. I know people rave about the Oleo, but I think I am willing to sacrifice some clarity. Thoughts anyone on waiting for SGP or should I just go for PS?

    I want to order some PS and overnight them but that would cost more than the films would.

    I ordered some for my 3GS a few weeks back but I ordered them on the Apple site because the overnight shipping was half of what PS charges. I wish Apple would sell the iPhone 4 PS films already.

    Despite what all the SGP employees on this board tell you, their film does not adhere properly. PS does.
