Default evo3d lets talk accessories...my input inside

I purchased a platinum case at BB for 35 bux, it has a cheap kickstand built in that serves its purpose but as you already know you can't charge it while in kickstand mode.

I also bought a ZAGG screen protector. DO NOT BUY the smudge proof model. I have always like the way this one feels compared to the standard ZAGG but on the EVO3d it looks horrible. I am going to have to remove it and put a standard one on it.

Let me know of any of your real world experiances w/ aftermarket products.

I've often seen good things on the Invisishield (is that right?) screen protector.

I had my rep put it on for me - two of them explained that it's soft for 24 hours and that the slight appearance of bubbling under the screen will go away within the day, or I take it back for replacement.

I was quite surprised by that but already it's looking very good, not impacting the 3D view, and not a drag on the fingers. If it clears up as advertised, I think I'll be way happy.

Edit - yep - the blemishes dried out as they said - looks really good!

Thank you for the tip. I plan on getting an Invisishield and I'm glad I have this information now.

I thought I'd ask here because I really don't want to buy the wrong kind, anybody have a link to a proper HDMI to E3D phone chord, and a USB to E3D that I can get nice and cheap? Also some decent screen covers and a car mount. I want to make sure I get the opinions of you folks before I take the plunge.

Somebody linked this car mount in another thread.
Mountek CD Slot Mount MT5000-C, Universal Hands Free Car Mount CD Car Mount [MT5000] - $19.95 : Mountek, CD Car Mount for Mobile Phones, GPS, and Handheld Devices, including iPhone, iPhone4, Android, Blackberry, Garmin and more

I saw these screen covers on Amazon, but I don't know which would be better.
Amazon.com: XtremeGUARD© HTC EVO 3D Screen Protector (Ultra CLEAR)(XTREMEGUARD© Packaging): Cell Phones & Accessories

Amazon.com: Halo Screen Protector Film Invisible (Clear) for HTC EVO 3D (3-Pack) - Premium Japanese Screen Protectors: Cell Phones & Accessories

And I'd like a direct link on HDMI and USB cables so I don't buy the wrong ones. T-Mobile gave me a free HDMI to phone cable at E3 and ended up giving me the wrong one saying it would work on the 3D. That's why I'm asking here before I make that mistake again and waste some money.

We've been tracking the ins and outs of the MHL->HDMI adapter at - http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-3d/303915-evo-3d-mhl-link-can-charge-while-connected-hdtv.html

The adapter will dictate the HDMI cable you'll need. Very good cables for low cost are at monoprice.com.

I got the Zagg invisible shield, anti glare, the guy told me after it dries it should be fine, but notices it does wash the screen out a bit, but the upside is no smudges, no finger prints, and easy to ead outside, so I guess that is the tradeoff. I also got the kickstand case, pretty cool, feels good

Default Invisishield from Best Buy Concern

Hey everyone, just picked up my EVO 3D yesterday from a Best Buy Mobile shop. Needless to say, the Best Buy salesman suckered me into buying the Invisishield for $24.99 + $7.99 to install which they didn't mention until I discovered it on my receipt! Anyways, I noticed that with the Invisishield on, there are a few dim lines present on the screen. Is it true that this affect will go away after a couple weeks? Also more importantly, does the Invisishield affect the way 3D content is displayed or how the screen looks? The touch screen on my EVO 3D feels a bit rough compared to my Ipod Touch screen. I am not sure if this is because of the Invisishield or just how the EVO 3D screen naturally feels. The invisishield claims smudge proof, but in just 1 day there are finger prints everywhere on my screen lol. Also, I noticed the screen seems a bit fuzzy if you compare it to the crystal clear Ipod touch screen. Not sure if I am comparing apples to oranges here or what. Anyone else have the invisishield or any input to add? Thanks.

Welcome to the forums!

I've moved your post here where others may have more info on the Invisishield.

My rep told me that the first 24 hours the display would soft and prone to easy nicking - and that the blemishes would disappear within that time.

The blemishes did turn out to disappear within just over a half day for me, and the cover has lost most of that gummy feel.

I'm new to them myself, so that's the best I know - as I say, check the posts above and maybe others can help as well.

I compared mine side-by-side with a new unit today - not any big significant quality reduction in viewing was evident - but that was a quick check on my part. Basically - looks good to me.

Hi, did you also get the smudge proof inivisishield? Now I am all worked up because the guy above said to stay away from the smudge proof ones very adamantly ugh. I have noticed the screen is starting to feel a bit smoother and less rigid than when I first got it. Do you know anything about the dim lines on the screen? Anyone else know if the Invisishield effects the 3D?

Haha - some days, I'm just slow!

I just now saw that Zagg is Invisishield.

My box doesn't say anything anywhere about smudge proof or the like.

3D seems to work totally aok with it.

I have the smudge proof one as well. Have you seen side by side of a regular and smudge proof invisishield? Do you think it takes away from the 3D affect? ahhh I guess I am screwed out of $30 bucks now.
Btw, I don't think smudge proof works because I have smudges all over my screen in just 1 day!

Two dumb questions, and sorry for being totally dense -- is "rep" == "representative in a Sprint store"? I've heard some of these screen protectors have some tricks to apply, and it sounds like depending on where you buy it, they'll do it for you?

Second: a few comments in this thread have warned about the smudge-proof one, but I never saw an explanation. What's the concern here? Too smooth/too grippy, less transparent, some other issue?

Thanks in advance!

In my case, rep = sales rep at Radio Shack. They were friendly, did this for free - as did my Sprint rep at the Sprint store last year for the Evo.

The main trick seems to be good eye-hand coordination, and not babying the process - in both cases, they had the experience to simply concentrate on the steps and go right thru it quickly. They made it look easy, but I was glad for the help, honestly.

So can we conclude that the Smudge proof invisible shield is the culprit for the slight graininess or is the screen grainy because its a 3d screen?

Amazon.com: HTC EVO 3D (Sprint) Premium Combo Pack - Black and Silver Ace Skull Spade Rubberized Design Shield Hard Case Cover + FREE Atom LED Keychain Light + Screen Protector + USB Cable + Car Charger: Cell Phones & Accessories

I'm thinking of taking the plunge on this little combo set right here, it's insanely priced, but it might be too good to be true. What do you guys think? It has exactly what I need, a cool looking case, a screen cover, a car charger, and extra USB chord.

Default Good headphones with mic??

I use the regular invisibleshield and it's great. Everyone, make sure you register them on the zagg site so that you can get replacements if something happens to it, or if you need a replacement phone. You have to send back the original and pay 4 dollars for shipping, that's all.

Now I'm looking for good music headphones that come with a mic. Preferably in ear headphones. Up to $25. Any recommendations????

Thanks MH

The one thing I don't like about invisible shields are that they dry out after prolonged use. For those of you that wear contacts, you know what I mean.

Both my DX and my iPod Touch have invisible shields. Both of them don't feel slick anymore. I like the feel of the Evo 3D, so I might risk scratching for some time. Unless anyone knows of a good alternative?

Nothing grainy about the screen, so - I'd question the cover if you're seeing that.

It is a common side effect for any screen protector that is Anti-Fingerprint or "smudge proof". My custom cut Anti-Fingerprint screen protector is semi "grainy" and has a little bit of an out of focus appearance. I used the same material on my Evo 4G and it was similar but a little more clear looking.

The visual problems that inherently come with Anti-Fingerprint Screen Protectors seem to be slightly exacerbated by the qHD resolution.

I'll probably be taking mine back, too for the original Zagg. The smudge-proof one looks great outside. I'll give it that much, but inside it drives me crazy and makes me feel like I can't focus properly. Big letdown.

If I were you, I would just purchase the OtterBox Defender. It comes with a pretty much unbreakable case, a screen protector (which requires no installation), and a belt clip holder which also doubles as a kick stand, all for 50 bucks.

Took back my otterbox commuter case. Rubber doesnt fit snugly at the top of the phone. Got the defender. Which is probably best in my work environment. Also took back my Zag screen protector. Too rubbery feeling for me and dont need it with the defender.

The defender case is less bulky on the 3D than on the 4G imo. So I can live with it.

When i take my zagg back should i just leave it on the screen? Also, best buy didnt give me a zagg box. They put it on my screen ahead of time. Its on my receipt so i hope they dont get picky cause they didnt give me the zagg box

Just went to best buy today and they refused to take back my invisible shield or swap it for me even though the pre installed it for me. I never told them I wanted to anti-smudge shield but it still got put on when i bought the phone. Best Buy is really getting under my skin the last couple years. Use to love them until they became so anal about everything.

There's a promo code for 20% off of the ZAGG website. It's for "students" but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Promo code: Studrate

Figured it may help those that choose to go this route. Says it expires 12/31/2015

Thanks, blue turtle! They look great. They would be perfect, because I'm very active too, but I don't see any yurbuds with a mic. I guess I'll keep looking.

Please, show me one place where you can buy this case, that has, at some point, had the case in stock. There is literally no information to be had about this case anywhere aside from when the prototype was first shown.

I believe there was a giveaway for 100 of these cases around launch, but aside from that, this case doesn't seem to exist.

So, unless you were one of those 100 people, I call shenanigans.

EDIT: LOL, I just read a little further down, and saw your correction.

I'm frothing at the mouth for this official kickstand case. From the looks of it, the back has the same texture as the back cover, which I love, is quite minimal, has a fat kickstand, and the kickstand is reversible. This means that you can charge the phone while using the kickstand.

Come on, HTC, get your butts into gear and release this case already!

If any of you don't want the rubbery and orange peel look that Zagg's tend to get, you should get a ghost armor.

They finally have them available for the 3D

Does best buy sell ghost armor? Did anyone else have trouble returning their zagg invisible shield at best buy?

That's terrible! I had the smudge-free Zagg one installed by BB and they took mine back yesterday. They would NOT return the $7.99 install fee, however. But, it's a simple return that you are not happy with the product. I would think they would HAVE TO refund your money.

As far as I know they only carry Zagg products. It is a ridiculous conspiracy. You can find MUCH better products by ordering from various places online.

Wow. Did you leave it on ur phone when you returned it? Did you have the original box cuz they never gave me a box. They told me i cant return it because installed products are not eligible for return. I gotta try another best buy

I did have the box..but the guy had kept the solution. I also left it on the phone and let them remove the protector. I even took the case off, the Platinum Series, and returned that without the box. They were very nice about the return. I would go to a different BB. That just doesn't seem right. Tell them you are not happy with it and want a refund. They should give it to you less the install fee!

I originally bought the Otter Box Defender. It was bulky in my hand..me being female. I then tried the purple Platinum Series Cruiser case. I did not like how the camera lenses on the back were fully exposed and not protected. I repurchased the Otter Box and it's great having it back. It's so well constructed and protects all the ports AND the camera lenses.
