What is a good screen protecter for the iPhone 5 they doesn't get yellow or black like the Zagg. I saw the poetic proflim. I would like one that doesn't leave fingerprints. Also I don't like that one glass screen protecter

Spigen glass.tr ftw

These are king. Spendy, but worth it.

One thing to note, I would recommend a wrap around case. The glass tends to chip relatively easily on the sides without a case covering it. This has been the case with both my wife's and my phones (when it was on our 4 and 4s respectively). Now that we have a case on our 5 it hasn't been an issue.

The "Crystal Oleophobic Screen Protector" by Green Onions Supply is an excellent choice for a screen protector. I've noticed very little smudges on my phone with this product as compared to others that I've tried.

I bought a 2 pack for $14.99 from the Amazon.Com website from the vender (Green Onions Supply), as the shipping was free.

I experienced this too. I got one of the Tech Armors for my wife's 4 and it came in a two pack from amazon. The first one I applied had dust on it already and looked like crap. I had to use the second one in the pack since I couldn't get all the dust off the first one. The mobc one I posted worked perfectly on the first application and seems to be very high quality for the price.

The best non glass screen protector that keeps fingerprints off and still keeps optical clarity is the Spigen ultra optics dual hands down! Won't find another that does both so well.

I wouldn't bother with glass screen protectors they may do more harm than good.

I just realized I did have one small speck of dust when I applied it and it also wasn't perfectly aligned. I settled for it though because every other part was fine. This is the second one I used, as my first phone I had this on was turned in for warranty replacement. That ones application had zero dust bubbles and was perfectly aligned.

Power support Anti-Glare without a doubt. Have been using power support since my iPhone 3G. Fantastic quality and have never had a problem.
