    I currently have a Zagg screen protector on my iPhone 4s and I'm less than satisfied. I really don't like the rubbery feel of the screen. It makes scrolling much more difficult. Are there any other screen protectors that I should consider purchasing? I want something that offers good clarity AND a more natural feel than the Zagg protector I currently have. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Go with any 'non-wet' applied crystal film like:

    Power Support

    or

    Incipio

    or

    SGP

    I've had experience with a bunch of cheaper products.... the two brands that really stand apart are SGP and PowerSupport, PhoneDevil in a pinch will be great as well.

    Short of those three... well not worth it imo.

    Also, FWIW, I'm a dry-application fan... so yeah :\

    So it sounds like Power Support or SGP are my best bet. Thanks for the advice.

    Moshi iVisor is my favorite so far. It goes on with ZERO bubbles every time and it's reusable. It's more money than the PS and SGP but you can reuse it over and over. Problem is it's Matte only.

    +1 with SGP. If you look on Amazon, a lot of people complain that it doesn't sit straight and that the edges eventually go out and leave a ring of bubbles. I've had more than 10 SGP crystal covers for my iPhone 4S and my Galaxy S (Korean model) and NONE of them had this problem. They can be tricky to put on, but being careful and smart will have them looking great on phones. I had Power support as well, and they're a great product. But, the SGP protectors feel smoother and are a bit thicker/stronger (no loss of touch sensitivity).

    try skinomi. It basically the same as Zagg but bit better imo. Lifetime warranty. Very smooth almost like naked glass not rubbery.

    Cheap $1.39 for full body or 2x front protector on amazon. it normally retails for 19.95, not sure why amazon is so much cheaper probably price error or something. I got several for backup in future.
    You can buy several and still be cheaper than Zagg

    XO Skins. They don't feel like rubber and they don't turn yellow or have the orange peel look. http://xoskins.com they are only $12 unlike some other I have seen for $20 at bestbuy.

    It looks like these also come with a cover for the home button. Do they? Most of the other products don't include covers for the home button which is silly because the home button is the easiest part to scratch on the entire screen.

    I personally like RadTech. I have used them on all of my iPads and iPhones.

    How does this cover apply, is it a static fit ?

    Thanks...

    Not a static cling, it uses a wet install exactly like the Zagg Invisible Shields.
