    I have a Xagg or right now, I just wanted something on for now, but I know it will dry up soon so I want to know what are you guys using?

    If you want to keep the natural glass feel of the iphone screen, this is the only choice:

    Seriously, I'd never put another plastic screen protector on any of my phones.

    SGP UltraOleophobic from Amazon. Perfect Fit.

    Great Video on installing using the hinge method, IAMTHEKILLER

    By the way, thanks so much for posting on the Spigen screen protectors. I bought a Zagg one today, but haven't installed it and once I read all the bad reviews on them (plus I am SO not going to spray anything on my new expensive phone - just not happening!), I ordered the Spigen through Amazon. You guys rock!

    The one that came with my Trident Aegis case. Probably my favorite case I have bought so far for any of my past iPhones.

    How are you using the Zagg? I bought one to hold me off too, but geez the thing felt terrible and attracted dust at the edges like crazy so I ripped it off and threw it out. Ordered a SGP set.

    I installed a SGP EX crystal when I received my i4 two years ago. Finally peeled it off today getting ready to sell it. I'll definitely be going with the SGP Ultra Crystal with the 5.

    I just ordered a set. hopefully they're better than the Zagg protectors I've used over the years.

    Same as on prior devices: SGP ultraoleophobic. Coating wears off but it basically ends up as a crystal screen protector.

    Better's always subjective. If you want a more glass-like feel, no orange peel, dry install and don't like how the Zagg IS attracts dust & dirt and eventually peels up that the edges you'll be pleasantly surprised. That said, there are fans of the Zagg IS that prefer it (again, it's a subjective matter).

    I went to tesserae in NYC and picked up a rad tech screen protector. It comes with two front and 2 rear protectors for 15 bucks. The front is awesome very close to power supply but the rear is garbage.

    What's the difference between this and the Crystal film?

    I got an SPgG ultra whatever it is called. Easily the best protector I have ever had. I can't even tell it has a protector on it.

    over time, they'll end up being the same thing.
    If you hate fingerprints, stay away from them; oil and fingerprints smudge all over them and it's impossible to wipe off unless you use a microfiber cloth.

    going to check out the Pure™ Glass ScreenGuardz, does anyone know how the feel/look of the glass protector is compared to the crystal clear hd screen protectors on the market?
