    How is the sgp crystal clear compare to the zagg with fingerprints and smudges ?

    Which one is better?

    I would probably have to say the SGP although I haven't used either. The ZAGG is mainly for scratch protection, not fingerprints and smudges.

    Neither. I am a little put off with SGP and how they changed their films. The adhesive is too strong now and if you get any dust under it during installation, its nearly impossible to get out. I really like the Switcheasy Pure+, Griffin or Power Support for the crystal shields.

    If you are looking for a shield, nothing comes close to Clear Coat. It has not orange peel effect and repels fingerprints fairly well. It does have a bt of a sticky feel to it and it makes it a bit harder to slide your finger over. Check their website for kiosk locations near you in a mall. Its worth the $10 to have one of their professionals install it. They are usually very very good. I am a perfectionist and I had not complaints about their installation.

    I have had many of both. I will never use Zagg again.

    I agree. I'm using zagg now and it's perfect for just protecting scratches. But it does smudge pretty bad, im constantly wiping the screen. I just order some cheap screen protectors off ebay for $0.99

    I got the sgp crystal that came with the sgp bumper case

    I like it better than the zagg the clarity looks the same to me
    When playing games the sgp is more slippery so is hard to control the car in gangstar

    I got the sgp hybrid ex bumper case zagg on the back and sgp crystal on the front

    Lookin at the back now it looks ugly with that orange peel compare to the front

    I still have a back sgp protector

    Is the back screen protector as easy to install as the front?

    I only got one shot with this

    The ZAG was like having a huge piece of orange peel finished rubber on my screen. It truly sucked.

    Indeed, the Zagg was a very bad combo with the orange peel and the rubbery feeling. Sometimes it would stick to whatever surface it was on (e.g. a table) and I thought the thing would peel off. In any event, I've never had a problem with any SGP protectors so I use those.
