    Posted: Oct/25/2010 at 1:25pm
Hey guys, just wondering which screen protectors you all use?

When I first got it I bought the zagg invisible shield.. It's still on the back but I really don't like the feel of it so I never put it on the front..

What are the alternatives? That won't feel shit/compromise screen quality?

Cheers

i bought these griffin ones at wal mart that have a matte finish, they are so sick. your finger slides along it so well, and it never gets sticky when your fingers are a little sweaty or something. the only con is that the screen quality is a little harder to see, but totally worth it for me.

I've gone trough so many screen protectors for the iPhone 4-regular slightly reflective, mirrored, and non-reflective etc.  I had the ATT sales person put them on each time because they are really good at it, but the edges would always bow up and create bubbles- finally riped em all off and I don't use one anymore. I think the case may be the one to blame here in the end, but so far so good with out a screen protector.

I use the PowerSupport Antiglare HD.

Works great. For the edges and the back, I have the Zagg InvisibleShield.

i have a case on it, im not worried about dropping it, i got a small scratch on the screen (no idea how) and im fuming, dont want to get more so i figured i would have to conform to a screen protector..

i agree matte ones are an amazing feel but i hate how crap it makes the screen look..

the zagg feel is disgusting, im assuming that invisible guard crap is the same..

i might have to put up with small scratches at this stage..

Same here. I use powersupport for both my iphone and ipad. They are pretty dang expensive though...

But if you google 'top screen protectors', they are always in the top 2. Great reviews all around.

These are a total waste of money.  The touch screen never works or feels that great after applying one and after a couple of months they end up looking like crap and need to be replaced.  I've had my iphone for two years and never used one of these and I don't have a single scratch on the screen.  These are just a scheme to squeeze extra revenue out of consumers.

Were the ones you used the freebies you get when you buy a case or the HQ ones made by a top brand?

Go to macrumors or any apple website/forum and you will see the difference between the HQ protectors and the crappy ones. There's a reason why some protectors come free with a $2 case and some cost over 10...even 20 dollars just for the screen protector. The antiglare ones especially make a huge difference. But the crystal ones are great too. I have the powersupport antiglare one for my iphone (over 1 year use) and the crystal one for my ipad (few months used)...both still looking fantastic.

Not saying you NEED screen protectors though. It's all preference... but I honestly couldn't imagine using my iphone outdoors in the sun without an antiglare screen protector... It boggles my mind. But that's just me, I know people that hate screen protectors for their feel and look.

amazon has clear protectors that simple cover the screen(not the back that some others do) and its fantastic. works well, easy to put on (if your not spasticated), plus you get 10 for about $4, so theyre by no means expensive.

EBAY SELLS THEM FOR 1cent shipped. You really can't beat that. The quality is pretty good too.

1 cent if you bid on one that no one bids...there's tons of listing so it's not that hard.

1 cent shipped, you really can't beat that.
