    First I want to thanks "nd4speed" who sent me the example so I can test it out. I took these pictures with my normal point and shot camera, but I will retake them as soon as I can borrow one DSLR to take some better pictures. If you have any request please let me know.

    Here is all the screen protectors I tried so far.

    I still prefer the SGP OLE, thats what I have on mine iPhone4, my brother and dad has the SGP Ultra Fine and PS Antiglare HD, sorry I couldn't put them(SGP Ultra Fine and PS Antiglare HD) together to take some pictures, because they never home in the same time. Both SGP and PS antiglare look a bit yellowish and never able to compare the clarity and sharpness with SGP OLE. Overall if you really want to keep the clarity and the HD retina display of iPhone4 stick with SGP OLE, or hate the smug, glare and fingerprint go with SGP Ultra Fine or PS Antiglare HD (I like the SGP better, because the precise cut at the home button make it really hard for ppl to notice you have a screen protector on it)

    Dude awesome pics!!! I wish my Oleo didn't look so good or I'd actually give the PS anti glare a try!

    Great review! I never noticed the difference in white balance before but you're right, the Anti-glare products seem a bit on the warm side in comparison.

    Thanks a lot, fantastic pix :) I'm very happy with the SGP Oleo I got, and this further cements my decision!

    Very nice, thanks. I'm in the process of replacing my IS and I'm taking a hard look at SGP vs PS right now. I'm leaning towards SGP OLE, and will order one thanks to your comparison!!!

    After a few days of use the with sgp ole screen is all scratched up by just putting it in my pocket.

    All the SGP fans and reviewers never mention how the screen is scratch magnet taking a way the screen quality in few days use.

    It is not much better than my IS because the IS will not scratch.

    I have mine SGP OLE on my iPhone4 for 2 weeks, I can only find a 0.1mm long scratch on the screen protector. It really depend on the personal usage.

    You're right. I had an oleo on also and it was all scratched up by just putting it in my pant pocket with nothing else. I do believe it was due to the softer coating of the film. If it didn't have any scratches I wouldn't have ordered the ps antiglare since it was a lot more expensive.

    i changed my mind. i ordered a PS Anti-Glare. A friend of mine told me to stay away from the OLE. As good as the film is, he said after 2 weeks of use the thing was scratched up and he had to put another one on. One week and it has a few scratches on it already. So...

    When you have time, can you put up the SGP Ultra Fine and PS Antiglare up for comparison? What is your opinion of these 2? Which one is more "fuzzy" and which one is sharper do you think?

    Just compare photo 9 with photo 19 (last one) in the first post. The ultra fine has more noise than the HD, but the pixels are also significantly sharper at the same magnification (8x).

    seeing MGS is sold out of PS screen protectors I ordered the OLE. I'll give it shot and see how it works out.

    Thanks for those close-ups. That was exactly my feedback to SGP. I thought the Ultra Fine did an excellent job of not messing with the clarity / sharpness of the retina display (it was noticeably more crisp than the PS HD), but the noise was a lot worse.

    had SGP OLE, it was hard to put on, never was able to get all bubbles out. tried many times, just was a PIA.

    Switched to Power Support, Happy Camper!
    Easy as Pie to install, overall material much better to work with and it feels better on touch.

    I think SGP is way over rated and their customer service and their caveats on returning a defective product totally SUCK! Ever try getting in touch with them, goos luck!

    I'm sticking with PS for both Ipad and iphone, and SGP can go out of business as far as I am concerned!

    I had a bit of trouble installing SGPs too. Have a PS ordered and hope the installation is as pie easy and problem free (No lifting) as mentioned above.
