Default HTC Desire HD - Screen protectors

Can anyone recommend any good quality screen protectors for the Desire HD.

I know there's Invisible Sheild, Fields Martin and some others. So who's bought what for their phone and any good?

So Far,

My preference about screen protectors has always been "BestSkinsEver". Used for my Cowon A2, Iphone 3Gs, Creative Zen Vision M etc.. . It's so clear once you want to remove it from the device. No left dust or something.

Smart Phones - Cell Phones


Of course no spesific skin for Desire HD yet but you can order DIY size which means you can shape it whatever you need. At least that's what I do Advise you to check it out.

You shake off all excess water you can then lay the film on and squeegee it with a credit card, and you just wipe up the water with tissue, no water got in to the phone doing it this way.

Mind you it's easier with 2 people as the other can wipe up the water whilst you squeegee.

Any recommendation for cleaning the screen before applying a screen protector? What about spectacle lens cleaner?

I've got the official HTC protectors - expensive but probably the best. If your new to putting on screen protectors you might want to use cheapo ones to practice with first LOL.

Just installed a Zagg Invisible Shield today. Came out perfect! You can just barely tell it's there when the light hits it just right. Apart from that, it feels much smoother when sliding a finger across it. Fingerprints are cut WAY down now too!

I just removed my 3 ebay protector because in the 2 weeks I've had it, its covered in scratches (and the bubbles/dust/fingerprints from the installation).
Instead installed my Zagg today, and... its different

I honestly do believe it is completely scratch proof because its more rubbery than plastic, and applying it was so much easier than cheaper protectors because of the wet application (which is very easy, and not as dangerous as it sounds), but its still managed to get a couple of tiny (and I do really mean tiny) bubbles in the screen which were too small to squeege out, and what looks like a dent right in the middle.

As for the after thought, the rubbery screen is not smooth like my cheapo protector, and causes resistance when you rub your finger against it.

Hopefully it'll all smooth out (manual said it takes 3 days to dry)

Update, the dent in the middle has magically moved down to the menu button at the bottom, and the screen is starting to flatten out, so is a lot smoother, but brick breaker is still quite difficult to play

I got mine from www.protectionfilms24.de in Germany.
The film quality is way better than some of the cheap ones I've tried from Ebay. Not cheap though, about 7-8 each, but from experience very scratch resistant. Cant tell its on there when side-by-side with my mates "naked" screen.

Do you mean this: HTC Screen Protector | The best collection of HTC screen protectors anywhere! ??

They are not producing "official" screen protectors. HTC Corporation (the phone company itself) does not produce screen protectors.

This website belongs to another company that misleadingly calls itself "HTC Screen Protectors" and makes protectors for HTC devices. There is a fine-print at the bottom of the website that says: "We are not affiliated with HTC Corporation. or any of the HTC's group of companies."

And the screen protectors are so expensive! I think they are cheating people by copying the HTC branding and making it seem like "official". And if anyone complains, they always have the tiny fine-print to fall on!

---

I got my screen protector custom-cut because the phone is newly released and a pre-cut protector is not available yet. The desire HD has a perfectly rectangular screen with curved edges (and no holes necessary), so it was easy to do a custom-cut. Other phones like the older Desire have funny shaped screens (and hole requirements sometimes) that a rectangular protector would not fit nicely on them.

I like my custom cut anti-glare screen protector as it feels nicer on the finger than a pre-cut anti-glare screen protector that was applied to my wife's Desire (older model). Will be keeping this protector for a long time.

I HIGHLY recommend the Martin Fields screen protectors. While they are slightly more expensive, I found them to be THE BEST screen protectors I've ever had on ANY phone!

I had one on my HTC Desire, and now I have a HTC Desire HD, I WILL be investing in one!

I bought a twin pack of those apparent HTC screen protectors. Screwed it up twice with bubbles, and hair and fingerprints took over, so both are useless now. Waste of 4 quid. Gonna try te invisible shield next. At 11 quid, it's a lot, but oh well to be honest. The phone is worth it !

Any peep know if it's easy to put invis shield ones on ?

these can be removed, cleaned and refitted if you get any inclusions too.
I got the whole body Invisibleshield but wouldnt again, would only go for the screen protector.
Feels rubbery and provides what feels like top protection to he screen.
Have you see the youtube video of the one they test?
Amazing

Did you get your money refunded? If he claimed the protectors to be professionally cut you can demand a refund and warn him that you may sue him for misleading advertisement.

Always check seller ratings and feedback on eBay.

Lol, then you should have remembered that screen protectors don't come cheap. I mean 99p for 6, that's just 16.5p per piece! There's definitely something fishy about a price so ridiculously low. (Screen protectors cost a few dollars/euros a piece)

anyone know about matte finish screen protectors? they're anti-glare and anti-fingerprint from what i've seen

would the wet application method work for screen protectors with sticky backs also?
looks pretty awesome

i'd recommend Case-Mate ones as they have a 3H hardness (bigger H# = harder surface, cheaper ones
can be 2H or lower) that make them more scratch resistant and also that
they have >95% optical clarity (non-foggy, does not strain your eyes),
characteristics that the 0.99 screen protector PROBABLY does not have

they do also anti glare ones as well as privacy screen protectors

check out for the application instructions on their website as well

Case-Mate - HTC Desire HD Screen Protector (2 Pack)

Honestly if you buy cheap ones you have to change them all the time cause they're crap, I'd rather buy something once and keep my phone protected as changing the screen will cost more than the screen protector anyway

it's better to be safe than sorry lol!
