Default Best GN2 Screen Protector

l usually use the Power Support range for my iPhones which have worked really well over the years. Unfortunately, I don't think Power Support make a protector for GN2 just yet. Can anyone recommend a alternative, preferably in a crystal finish. At present I am using a cheap ebay job which is reducing the quality of the screen.

I love Spigen products but can't speak specifically for any of the protectors for the Note 2 since I don't have one yet. Might I suggest looking for reviews on the Spigen Steinheil series to get an overall perspective of them? And here is the website for more info on them.

Lots of love for SGP here and I agree. I've tried 5-6 different brands and while I'm not a huge fan of the SGP Anti-fingerprint the Ultra Crystal is outstanding and the best I've used.

Ultra Crystal is the one I swore by, but some people were saying that the oleophobic is just as clear, but attracts less smudge and is even easier to clean.

Well I dont usually fit a screen protector but as this thread clearly
indicates, these are the ones to fit. As I have this beautiful handset
for another 2 years, I am going to fit one, just ordered the ultra crystal one.

Has anybody tried Zagg/invisible shield? I used to use them on the iPhone and Blackberry with good results, but admittedly, haven't looked at the latest/greatest in screen protection for a couple years...

Let me know how that one works out for you, drex. The Ultra Crystal is the one I've always used and I've been hesitant to try the oleophobic version.

I'm going to try to hold out for the 32gb Note 2, so I won't have to get one right away (and now we'll see if I can really hold out that long). lol

I'm curious as well.

Is the 32gb coming out later than the 16? I was under the assumption that both would be released at the same time?

Will do. I actually may hold out for the 32, as well, if they make some sort of indication/announcement when/if it'll be available on Sprint.

No you're right and I might not be able to hold out. Know what I'm worried about? If a 32 or 64gb version is not immediately available and I do wait, I'm worried I'll see something else promising as an upcoming phone and want to wait for that. LOL This is how I've had this gangsta' Evo for so friggin long.. lol I know there's no way to stay top of the line for more than a few months anymore, but it gets so hard to choose!

We won't know for sure until all is confirmed Oct 24th; I doubt the 64mb will release initially, but hopefully the 32gb will, at least.

I tend to get very excited about a new phone. I don't know how you've held on sooooo long. I've purchased 2 phones full price and the Note 2 will make my third! I get bored in exactly 6 months everytime. I think this one will hold my attention. Maybe you can wait since you've waited this long. I can't do it!!!

One word.. rooting!
And I have pretty much hated the Amoled screens so after jumping from phone to phone in the beginning, I had to slow down when HTC started on their downhill ride. I wouldn't have been caught dead with Samsung or Amoled in those days, and the Evo successors were either a downgrade, a disaster, or not much of an improvement. Now that HTC has chosen internal batteries, I'm done with them, despite loving their screens. It's very sad.. sniff sniff hehe

I figure if any Samsung phone will win me over, it's this one.

Hi Evohicks, like you, I am also based in the UK, can you please tell me where you ordered your crystal Spigen screen protector from?

Thanks

I understand that one for sure.. this Evo is the first time I've lasted the two years (and more)! And I paid full price for two of them when they came out. My son defected to the fruit side of life only a few months on his (traitor!) so I was able to play with 4 Evos altogether with replacements on both lines. Bricked two, one decided to fly out of my hand onto tile one too many times, and this one, the first, is still going strong. Lol

Gonna be sad to see her retired, but I may switch to AT&T for the Note 2, and see how long I can keep this one going.

Yeah I got mine from Ebay, pretty much the same price as Amazon.
What I need now is something like a digital camera case, with zip, to put the phone in when I'm in dusty environments. It really needs to fit snug inside with no rattling around, it will also have the Samsung official flip cover on.
The reason for this is I have written a few phones off with dust getting in, no risking it with this one. Any suggestions welcome

The #1 thing about SPG screen protectors is that they're all dry install, so keeps the phone safe from water damage.

ultra crystal (only ones I've tried before) are extremely clear, to the point that you can barely tell there's a screen protector on the phone.

oleophobic (one I'll be trying with the Note 2) is supposedly as clear as the ultra crystal, but also limits the amount of fingerprint smudges and oil on the screen protector.

anti-glare is self explanatory. It's got anti-glare components for use in sunny areas.

Can't remember the other versions.

anti-glare is self explanatory. It's got anti-glare components for use in sunny areas.

Can't remember the other versions.
I am considering the ultra crystal and the oleophobic one, but I shall wait for your comments first hehe

The other one I've used is the anti-fingerprint. It's OK vs other similar anti-fingerprint brands but it is totally different than the oleophobic. It's matte instead of glossy, it has the slight rainbow affect, and its not nearly as smooth as the crystal or oleophobic.

Thanks for posting that. I couldn't remember if there was an anti-fingerprint one or not, but after looking back on the website, I remembered.

Do those of you in the UK using screen protectors find the stylus still works just as well with it on? I thought I read somewhere that they usually cause a bit of interference...

Thumbs up

Just fitted the SPG Crystal screen protector, truly amazing, especially after removing a temporary ebay version. It is like using the orginal screen.

l used the s-pen to write this message as a test and there is no negative impact on the pen or screen.

Thank you all for the recommendation.

Yup. Once I saw recommendations of SGP on this forum, I've never used anything else (unless SGP wasn't an option). There's something about the quality of their screen protectors that just outshines all the competition. I've tried so many different companies (famous to cheap ebay) that I've had a good comparison of the differences. SGP reigns supreme over all, especially due to the dry install process.

I did the same. just got the official flip cover and SGP screen protector delivered today, wow, I do feel like the mutts nuts now, the cover looks very nice and for someone who doesn't really like screen protectors and can't stand fitting them, it went on pretty easily, and looks good, can hardly notice it and its giving me piece of mind when I am at work or writing on it.

How is the leather of the official flip cover? Because I put my gadgets in my bag and I was thinking of a pouch or a flip cover

Flip cover is not leather, its like plastic y at least the grey one is. The front is like a brushed metal look with Samsung on the top and galaxy note 11 on the bottom. The front opens and the inside is a soft suede like material that rests on the screen when its closed. The back is identical to the standard one thats on the grey phone but its attatched to the front also. The end product is a stunning looking case and has to be seen to be appreciated, go down to the store and ask the assistant to try it on, well worth the 22:90 I paid.
I work on a building site most of the time so this is not sufficient on its own to protect the phone so I am currently on the look out for a hard case with zip to completely cover my phone in its flip cover.
I would be carefull putting it in a handbag or purse with other items (of course if I were female) with just the flip cover on but then again I am very protective.

Just an update on the flip cover, everything looks fine, works fine until you want to put your phone in the car dock. Then it won't fit in lol so if you are planning on a car trip, make sure you carry the back cover to change into

Invisible Shield is awful. I used to use that on my past devices, until I discovered SGP. Never again.

I'm a big fan of ZAGG. Had one on my DROID Charge & currently on my S3. I just have to decide between the original or the new extreme version, as I've heard the HD version isn't the greatest. So unless I hear about the feel of the extreme , I might just stick w/ the original.

If anybody has used the ZAGG Extreme version please comment here on this thread : ZAGG Extreme as this will help me in my decision making process. Thanks.

Everyone I've turned on to SPG ... and I literally mean every person, and then every phone in their family... has thanked me profusely. The quality is quite evident in the beginning, but the real payback and benefit is when it still looks and feels great a year or more later. Most grew accustomed to the drag on Zagg and didn't realize how yellow it turned until they removed it.

I would challenge anyone to try one, then see for yourself Zaggs are not much better than the multi-packs of crap you can get for a couple bucks. It's like driving an old car that you're comfy with and love, then driving a Lexus or another high end car - you wonder why the hell you thought your old car was 'the bomb'. LOL

No offense to anyone, it is what it is.

In regards to the ZAGG turning yellow as I've heard folks say before I've never had that issue. I really love the sponge type feel especially when typing. Just personal preference I guess.

I detest Zagg screen protectors. Mine turned yellow in less than a month and so did their replacements.

The only thing about SPG is not knowing which one to get. Too many options for a screen protector so you don't know which one is best.
