Default Best screen protector?

What brand of screen protectors do you all like? I've heard people talking about Zagg, Wrapsol, and Phanton Skinz, but which is the best? Preferrably would like one that is not very "grippy" and has as little orange peel effect as possible. Thanks!

i've used all the zagg-type ones and just don't like how they look. just got the ultimate screen guard from seidio and it's great. i much prefer these quality static cling types. crystal clear and doesn't show fingerprints as bad.

Has anyone tried the three-pack sold by VZW themselves? Three for $12.99 sounds good, and I doubt there's a huge difference between screen guards; either it works or it doesn't. It's clear, or it isn't. Anyone know from experience or word of mouth?

Default Lexerd is best

Hands down best I have seen. Why get 3 when you can get 1 that will last the life of the phone and not use any glue.

they're ok but my problem with them is they don't cover the whole screen. bottom row of buttons is uncovered and part of the top near the earpiece. they also don't stay on really well. but they are clear and decent quality.

Glad it was useful. I thought it better to direct you there instead of copy pasting the review. Good luck and let us know what you think.

Will do, man. Went two months, almost, without a case or cover and i figured that was long enough without protecting at least the screen. I don't think I want a case since it'll be too bulky, but the screen guard is a must.

I purchased the anti-glare version from Boxwave. I think it is a great screen protector. You can even take it off and wash it and reapply it. I used a Boxwave for my old XV6800 phone also and loved it.

I have always been a big fan of Clarivue screen protectors. They are very easy to put on, you can take them off, clean it with water and put it back on, and do their job phenomenally. I will continue to use Clarivue for all of my screen protecting needs on my future mobile devices.

Those do look like good screen protectors. I might have to try them in the future.

I have owned Zagg/Shieldzone shields for every portable electronic device I have owned. I just got mine for my Eris, the response is the same as it was before I put it on, it looks clear, little orangepeel, and if it scratches in some way, I get another one for free. Worth every penny.

I just put a phantom skin on my Eris. Works as well as the Zagg's I've used in the passed (iPod) but I've noticed that the Phantom skin has much less of a peel effect.

Some photos where you can kinda see the difference in orange peel effect:

I bought a Zagg but never put it on (anyone want it ).

I ended up getting a Boxwave ClearTouch Crystal screen protector and like it a lot. It's totally clear (they have another one that's anti-glare) and very smooth. It cleans up OK and you really have a hard time feeling any difference. And you can apparently take it off, clean and reapply, but I haven't tried this.

is there any stores where any of these covers can be found, like maybe Radio Shack, or are they pretty exclusively sold online?

...I don't want the ones from Verizon.

Just installed my Boxwave Crystal on my Droid and found it quite painless (unlike the Zagg I trashed when I first bought my phone). The screen feels and looks great (as smooth as the original screen with no loss of responsiveness). I am a very happy camper.

Ghostarmor at best buy is by far the best screen protector. Feels like the regular screen really responsive and nice feel to it.

I installed this HTC Droid Eris Screen Protector two days ago. Works great. Had an "Ebay special" on there before that was complete garbage. Can't tell the Skinomi is on there (just as smooth as OEM screen and no loss of function), has UV protection, and lifetime warranty. Buy it on Amazon for $9.99.

I bought some screen protectors from eBay, and they are terrible. The phone responds, but the feeling is tacky to the touch like a thin piece of rubber or soft silicon. I'm not sure how to describe it. I have some from Wal-mart that you have to cut yourself. Its a pain, but the skin is super slick and smooth. You can't tell its there. Its like the hard surface of the phone itself.

Can anyone recommend one that is very slick to the touch, but that I don't have to cut. Also, if you know where to get them, let me know.

I'd rather not put anything on it, but I'm rough on phones, so I'm playing it safe.

Thanks!

I have the ghost armor screen protector on my eris. It does require the spray solution and some patience to put on. After 20 mins of prep and application, pushing out bubbles, etc., and about 2 days for everything to dry, I find it very worth it. The screen response is still very good.

the ghost armor website has the whole body + screen kit right now for only $15.

I just bought a 3 pack of EZguards from Ebay. I should receive them tommorow. They only cost $4.00 so if they end up sucking it wont be a big loss.

I will post once I have installed it and give my feedback.

I bought a silicon case and screen protector off ebay for only $5 and I love both. The case is excellent and the screen protector is great because it helps block the glare slightly, but without being too much of a matte finish. Also, it prevents fingerprint smudging. The only problem is that it's not great with scratches. I didn't think I would get many scratches in my pocket, but apparently I do because they're pretty noticeable now. Sadly I think I'm going to have to buy a new screen protector.

Any recommendations? I just need the screen protector and I would like it to be affordable.

Thanks

That's good because they do suck. Exactly what I had on mine.

Well I put a Phantom Skinz on about five days ago and I like it a lot so far. Except I had a stroke of stupidity and got a few specks of dust under it, so I think I may put a new one on. Feels very nice though!

I used them (the Verizon 3 pack) when I first bought my Droid and they do an adequate job but not up to par with the Boxwave. I like the feel of the Boxwave better and they were much easier to install and reinstall when I screwed up.

Is the Boxwave ClearTouch Crystal screen protector truly scratch resistant? I bought a cheap screen protector for my Droid Eris off of Ebay and it too claimed to be scratch resistant but now it has many many little scratches on it along with some scuffs. I'm trying to find a truly scratch proof screen protector. I'm still debating whether or not I should even use one...I just feel nervous not using one.

Thanks

Just put a gadget wrapper on my nexus... very nice! Its similar to the invisible shield but no orange peel. They have a website,but theres a kiosk here and they put it on for you. I was skeptical but i watched very closely and they did a great job.

i just went to best buy this morning, bought the zagg invisible shield for the eris, and had one of the guys there install it for 7.99 (had always had trouble in the past installing it)

gotta say, i'm pretty pleased with it so far

for the first 2 days you will see imperfections, but after that they will all disappear
i know this because i installed the zagg invisible shield for my wife's iphone and now you can't tell that there is anything on it at all

That's the one that I have. Still on the first one after almost 3 months - there's one tiny bubble that I just couldn't get rid of but I only see it when the screen is asleep, so I can live with that. I've washed it off with water and a Kimwipe and it's hanging in there just fine.

I have an invisible shield on my ipod - I hate it. I have purchased Clarivue for multiple devices and LOVE it. I've also tried the knock-off invisible shield....can't remember what it's called. I just hate the water application part. I've also tried the pack of 3 from the Verizon store. They're pretty good too, similar to Clarivue. The only real difference is that Clarivue is cut a little bigger to cover most of the shiny black area above the screen (the Verizon ones end at the top of the screen) and Clarivue has a lifetime warranty on all their products which I've taken advantage of a few times.

The Boxwave is holding up much better than the stock Verizon protectors I bought when I first pruchased my Droid (yes, there is a BIG difference in quality). It was also easier to install and a better fit. I just purchased the Boxwave antiglare protector and will play with it this weekend (the clear one does show fingerprints).

I've got a skinomi screen protector on now and we also put one on my wifes. Been on four about a week and have we both enjoy them. There is a slight orange peel effect when viewing at certain angle and the light is just right. Not enough to bother either one of us. I had always used Zagg in the past with great results but went with the Skinomi due to it being a fraction of the price compared to Zagg. Seems like the exact same product.

Right now I have a Zagg invisible shield but it is way to grippy. Almost like a rubbery feel to it and when you swipe across the screen it drags real bad. I was wondering if anybody who has the Clarivue can tell me how it feels? Smooth feel like the original screen or is it grippy?

I have the Clarivue and I love it. It's static application, not like the Invisble Shield (I have one of those in my ipod). The Clarivue is very smooth, not grippy or orange peel-y. It feels almost exactly like the bare screen, IMO. Hope this helps.

I am a long time Zagg (Invisible Shield) fan - but I had two of them out on my Eris with the same result - about a 1 pixel line going down the middle of the screen. It seemed like a material defect, and didn't go away. I was happier with the Verizon screen protector I picked up with the phone. Then I had Ghost Armor installed, and have been very happy with it. My only complaint is that it peeled up a little bit around the light sensor (I got it to stick again, but there was a little bit of whitening of the material). I may have it replaced because of that, but otherwise it's been perfect.

I like the zagg because you only have to buy one for the life of the phone. They wil replace it for free. GREAT company to deal with also.

Does the clarivue cover all the way up to the top of the screen and around the speaker? Unlike the Verizon one which only goes to the top of the display.

I always use Cell Phone Skins & Protective Covers - iPhone Skins, Blackberry Skins, iPod Skins, Apple Laptop Skins - Best Skins Ever for all my things. Here's a pic of my Eris with the skin just minutes after I put it on.

I'd think twice before skinning the whole phone. Not only do you lose the awesome (imo) rubberized feel, most skins won't stick to it very well.

The Clarivue is different - kinda hard to explain so stay with me. Looking at the Eris, on the top right side of the screen the protector goes all the way to the corner. At the speaker it stair-steps down and then at the proximity sensor it stair-steps down again. But, even stair-stepping down it still covers most of the black on the left side of the screen, way above the edge of the screen. (I had the Verizon ones too and this one covers way above where it stopped.) Does that make sense?

Kinda. Is there anyway you could possibly get a pic for me?

I tried the BSE on my Blackberry and hated it. I tried about 50 different protectors on my BB curve and finally settled on the Clarivue. As soon as I got my Eris I immediately ordered the Clarivue and I love it - especially because the screen surface of the Eris is flat. On the curve it was sorta, well....curved. Anyway, just invested in an ipod touch and immediately ordered a Clarivue for it too. I've also taken advantage of their lifetime replacement policy and they are awesome. Zagg's customer service is awesome too, I've replaced the skin on my ipod video once before but I hate the application process. Now that I've had the ipod video for a couple of years I hate the way the Zagg looks.

I love Zagg's customer service but there product is way to grippy. It's no where near as smooth as the screen is and that gets really annoying when typing and well just using the touch screen. Hopefully Zagg will give me a refund then I'll order a Clarivue.

Can you PM me your email address and I'll send you the photo? I tried to upload it here but the file is too big.

I bought THESE for my Eris off eBay. They fit the entire screen, were easy to get on, and slick just like the screen. I can't really tell its there. Oh yeah.. they're cheap :-)

I had bought some before this that were made out of a silicon like material which was tacky. Hard to describe. I would put my finger on the screen, and it wasn't smooth. Ever tried to dance in tennis shoes? It was like that. You can do it, but feels like you're stuck to the floor.
