    I am looking for crystal clear protection. I have used Power Support for 3G, 4 and 4s. No problems but up to trying something as good if not better

    Need something easy to install

    I have read a lot about SGP UC and UO. Which one is clearer?

    What about Ghost Armor?

    Others to consider?

    I have used varios including: Zagg, GreenOnions, SGP, Power Support and Switcheasy.

    There are two main kinds of screen protectors; hard static cling and soft wet apply ones.

    All of the static cling ones are easy to aply and clearer than the wet ones.

    My order of preference is as follows:

    1. Green Onions oleophobic
    2. SGP Oleophobic
    3. Power Support Crystal
    4. Switcheasy Crystal.

    I don't recommend any of the soft ones like Ghost Armor or Zagg.

    Don't use one at all. Or at least go it without one for a few weeks to see if you really worry about it.

    Naturally, if you are prone to dropping the phone and/or you just toss it in your purse/pockets with keys then perhaps you should maintain using one.

    All the protectors I mentioned (static cling crystal type) look completely clear, just look at previous threads or reviews by Larry Greenberg and other recognized bloggers. The wet apply shields are the ones recognized for causing a muddy effect.

    the guy didnt even know what he was doing to install it used 75% of the liquid? haha you put a light mist on the screen you dont drench the damn thing. makes me wonder if her even got the right shield also seems dumb to try it yourself if you have never done that type before and mess it up. go watch the videos on youtube about the hd no one i watch said theirs on orange peel


    for people who dont know what they are doing you dont drench it

    Just check the hundred of threads discussing the Orange peel effect of zagg, including the ones installed professionally.

    And why you say crystal static cling protectors are muddy? No single reviewer has even said so as they are universally accepted as the clearest protectors. Even the no name brand ones.

    I've always liked the Power Support the best. After a while (they last a LNG time) they aren't as clear and I take them off and use the phone without for a while. Turns out I never put one back on. I much prefer the clarity without a cover and have not had any issues.

    My iPad has one but it gets less use and stays in a case all the time so the screen protector is in great shape still. My iP5 won't have one though.

    I have used PS crystal and and love them. I have also used SGP and they look equally clear, same as the naked screen.

    Zagg, Bodyburdz, GA etc. have a rough rubbery texture. Stay away from those.

    I was going to go with the zagg HD but they didnt do full cutouts.

    I dont like the way they did them.

    So iam gonna wait till they change it, which I know they will.

    Or iam going with another company that did them right.
