What's all the difference between the oleophobic and the crystal clear and the tempered glass?? Makes thing so complicated...

Oleophobic I believe is essentially the ultra clear with an anti fingerprint chemical coating. It's the one I have and personally it's perfectly clear to me. Some have said the coating will wear away over time, leaving it as essentially a clear protector. I went with it after looking for previous customer experience and no one could really list any drawbacks to the oleophobic version vs the ultraclear.

The glass one is as per the name, a piece of glass as opposed to being plastic. Apparently it feels good, although I didn't get it because I don't want a case and SGP seem to suggest it should be used with a case to protect it from breaking. Apparently a hit to the edge of it can cause it to crack.

I've had SGP ultra clear for my iphone 5 since this Tuesday (got it late btw) and seen a strong rainbow effect. On their website, it says 'no rainbow' effect so beware. I've called for a refund but I haven't received any information. I can't wait till Power Support comes out with their screen protectors.

I put mine on last night and there's no rainbow. :)

Funny..they don't make a ultra "clear" product. They make an ultra "fine" and ultra "crystal". Both labeled with no rainbow effect. My ultra "fine" will be delivered today so I will report back. I am a big fan of the Anti-Glare/fingerprint and I don't mind a little loss of light transmission. Waiting for Power Support films as well.

Just installed my Ultra Fine Anti-Fingerprint/glare SPG screen protector and I am initially very impressed. I'll have to use it for a few days before a final review. I am comparing to PowerSupportUSA which I had on my 4S.
