It really depends what you want to spend, i tried the high-priced ones and the cheap ones and didnt really notice anything different, i have been using these http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Lot-Screen-Protector-Lcd-Shield-Guard-Armor-Cover-for-Apple-Iphone-4-4th-Gen-/320917222213?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item4ab8283345#ht_3825wt_1157 and they are real good quality, they however just need to be changed out about every 6 months or so as they do pickup scratches just like any other screen protectors.
This is why I go to the mall; yeah, I'm getting ripped off but the people that put them on do a good job.I appreciate your response. I buy cables from monoprice all the time and never knew they had iPhone accessories. I got a 3-pack of Matte screen protectors for her. Now the trouble with putting them on
i meant run the shower for a little while, the steam will drop the dust and create a more "dust free" environmentYou want me to take my phone in the shower?
Dust is everywhere, how can I have a dust-free room? That's like what astronauts have in those giant vacuum-sealed chambers.
a screen protector is used to protect the lcd screens of digital, electronic devices. The personal digital assistant (pda) is, perhaps, the most commonly used gadget for which screen protectors are used since pdas are operated via a stylus. If not used carefully, the tip of the stylus can potentially mar or scratch the sensitive lcd screen surface, and so screen protectors were brought to market.
The "first generation" of screen protectors were made from very thin films based on the concept that an extra layer between the two surfaces (screen and stylus) would provide the needed protection to prolong the life of the device. These screen protectors came (and still come) in packs of 10 to 20 protectors and are hand-cut by the end consumer to fit the specific device. Such screen protectors, while offering extra protection, did not completely fill the need in the marketplace. They peeled up easily and they scratched almost as easily as the screens, causing the protector to be replaced often.
The newest generation of screen protectors are made from a much more durable film and are designed to be a more permanent part of the gadget which they protect. The material is a urethane-based film which is a little thicker than traditional screen protectors (.008 inches compared to .005 or .003), but the film is hardly noticeable once installed. The film originated when the u.s. Military was looking for a way to protect the leading edges of their military helicopter blades from abrasive airborne particles (sand) while traveling at hundreds of miles per hour. The negative is that it is hard to remove and leaves a sticky residue. It is also made in small sizes, not recommended for bigger than four inch diagonal screens. Since the film is clear, there are problems with uv rays emanating from the display to the eyes and bounce back from the sun. It also does not provide protection from glare and hard to read outdoors.
For less permanent solutions there are screen protectors that are non-adhesive and work by sitting in the gap between the lcd screen and the case of the device. The film can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled without any problem. This new generation of film is available with anti-glare coating to help users see the screen in daylight. The non-adhesive screen protector can cover lcd screens from one inch to 50 inch diagonal and is used on digital cameras to large hdtvs.
The anti-reflective screen protector film has been introduced in 2008 in japan and works by canceling out glare and blocking the reflection of uv rays. This allows users to see the display clearer, even outdoors and while wearing polarized sunglasses. The film has a tacky rubberized backing which adheres to the display, but can easily be removed and reinstalled when necessary. The film comes in sizes up to 50 inch diagonal and can be installed without need for water or soapy solutions. The film has been approved for use by the military, boaters, laptop manufacturers, law enforcement agencies and is recommended for everyone who likes to use their device outdoors. The film can stay in place for over 1 year and retains its glare canceling benefit.
Despite these undoubted advances the earlier technology retains a cost advantage. First-generation screen protectors are generally less expensive and can be purchased in packs, enabling the end user to fit them to different devices themselves. Second-generation screen protectors on the other hand, although more expensive, offer better long-term protection and are generally made specifically for each individual device, providing the user with a better fitting protector.
And for the usage of the smart mobile phone screen, there are mainly 8 kinds of screen protector: Privacy screen protector, mirror screen protector, anti-glare screen protector, ultra-clear screen protector, ar screen protector, fingerprint resistant/glossy screen protector, dirt-repellent luster screen protector and antibacterial screen protector.
I had a lot of trouble with those. Took me 3 or 4 of them, couldn't get rid of the damn bubbles (for the iPad, different story, I used just 1 of them monoprice too).I appreciate your response. I buy cables from monoprice all the time and never knew they had iPhone accessories. I got a 3-pack of Matte screen protectors for her. Now the trouble with putting them on
He was referring to her girlfriend (the owner of the iPhone).didn't know machines had genders lol
Depends on what you're looking for from a screen protector. There are countless threads you can refer to for ideas. PS and SGP are a couple of popular brands but they're by no means the only options out there. Picking one depends on your preferences. Does the texture matter? Do you want matte or antiglare? Crystal? Oleophobic? Tempered glass? Budget? Not all screen protectors are identical. Don't assume that your notion of "good" is universal.
Price is just price. Make sure you're buying what suits your needs/wants. Zagg and BSE aren't good options if you can't stand orange peel.My Zagg front and back doesn't have a scratch on it and never has, I do like Power Support, Zagg and BestSkinsEver also. Get what you pay for with screen shields imo.
Cars and ships are commonly referred to with female pronouns.didn't know machines had genders lol
It's like a crystal. After a while it's totally like a crystal as the oleophobic coating wears off.I'm placing an order tonight for some of the Oleophobic to see if there's a huge difference in screen clarity.
Shower method has been discussed countless times in prior screen protector threads. Read up and learn.You want me to take my phone in the shower?
