Default Love my new amFilm Note 3 Premium Screen Protector!

I recently got the amFilm Samsung Note 3 Premium Screen Protector and tried them out. I am pleasantly surprised with the product! The clarity and feel are excellent as is the fitment. The kit was very nice and included everything you need for a successful and clean install. I had the screen protector installed and bubble free within minutes of opening the packaging. The included tape for performing the hinge method of installation was very grippy and worked wonderfully. The microfiber cloth for precleaning the screen is also very nice and a good size. I also installed their HD screen protector on my Nexus 7 and am extremely pleased with those as well. I would not hesitate to recommend TechMatte's amFilm line of screen protectors to anyone looking for a screen protector for their device. Excellent quality at a great value. And they offer a free lifetime warranty their products and give free replacement if your screen protector becomes scratched or damaged.

Initial impressions aren't too bad.It's not 100% smudge/fingerprint proof as one is led to believe,but,the screen does appear to repel a lot of it.

This is enough for me to forgo using a traditional screen protector.

I'll give it a few days use & give an update mid-week w/water repel test results.

Default CRYSTALUSION Follow-Up

After 4-5 days of use:

Welcome to Liquid Glass Protection - Crystalusion

I decided to perform a water repel test to see if indeed there is something to this product.

I simply covered any areas suseptible to water intrusion w/painter's tape & poured water down the face of the screen.

Practically all the water sheeted off w/o any beading/fogging/etc. so,I'm going to assume that the product is indeed providing some level of protection.

A monthly test like this should be sufficient to gauge when it's time to re-apply.
By the mfgs. claims,up to 12 months of protection can be expected.

For anyone that's interested,I'll update this on a monthly basis,as this will be the only screen protection I'll be using from here on out.

Good riddance to traditional screen protectors.....

Default Spigen GlastR Slim

I installed the Spigen GlastR Slim yesterday and I'm very pleased with the early results. I had left the screen cover on since I got the phone so when I pulled it off I had a clean screen to start with. I viewed the YouTube videos for the install plus readings here. It went in place easily although I spent fifteen or twenty minutes working out the early bubbles with the squeegee. The screen is very vibrant and crystal clear. Finger control is fine. I tested the S-Pen and it seems to be responsive although I haven't given it a long workout (I'm not a big user of these features). It does not add noticeably to the thickness or weight of this already large phone.

It was expensive but I like the extra protection and I'm pretty pleased so far. Very pricey but I was willing to pay for maximum protection. With any luck I'm am going to leave it to others to post drop and scratch tests of this screen protection.

I wasn't planning on using a screen protector, but I saw the price of this tempered glass screen protector and figured it was worth a shot
http://www.ebay.com/itm/310787283233?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1439.l2649&afsrc=1
So far, I am liking it a lot. It is more of a flexible glass protector, but very thin and works just fine. So far, I haven't noticed any scratching, but we'll see how it holds up a few months down the line

Default UAG Screen protector

I have used the supplied UAG screen protector; thought might as well.

The clarity is rubbish. Circle air bubbles dotted around the screen.

Is there a tempered glass one which fits well with the UAG case?

Thanks

This was my first tempered glass protector purchase. Prior to this, I had sworn by SGP. I am so happy I went with the less expensive route. Not sure how much true protection it'll give compared to the thicker options, but it truly feels as good as the stock glass and thin enough not to obstruct the case I use. so far it seems like I've managed to add protection with the minimal amount of additional size, so I am happy.

Me and my niece feel the same way about this—Why would you put a screen protector on a screen you need to touch?

I'm going to go with the Spigen GLAS.

But I have one problem.

There are two models, the SGP GLAS.tR (0.4mm) and the SGP GLAS.t (0.26mm)

Is there any major difference between these two,
other than the thickness and the price?

I will be using the GLAS with the Spigen Neo Hybrid case.

Which one should I get?

The tR has rounded corners and is thinner thicker from what I've read.

I bought the Iloome premium tempered screen protector, and it fits perfectly with the Neo Hybrid case, as well as every other case I have. The only cases I can see it being a problem with are the ones that have a face covering. Didn't want to go with the Spigen GlasTR because the adhesive is too strong from my previous experience. The Iloome adhesive is just hard enough to not ever move on its own, but can be removed without cracking the screen protector(unlike the GlasTR). I had a tiny speck that showed up when I placed the Iloome protector on, and was actually surprised how easy it was to remove and put back on after cleaning the speck off with the provided tape/speck remover.
There's no reason, in my book, to pay more for the GlasTR when it doesn't show any positives over the Iloome, but that's just from my experience.

I also forgot to take a hot shower before putting the screen on. Apparently, installing the screen protector without any specks underneath it, is easier when doing it in a bathroom after taking a hot shower. Still got it speck free. Sure did make me nervous though.

It's nice to have a humidifier in your house isn't it.

I really need to pull the trigger on something now, do u have a link?

Now that everyone has had their glass screen protectors "for a while", how do you like them? Would you try something different if given the chance, or would you re-buy the one u have?

Default Spigen GlastR Slim Reviewed--One Month

I reported on this when I installed it. Now I have close to one month of steady use including a challenging trip to the beach (Florida panhandle). The R version has rounded edges so you would not even know there is a protector installed if you weren't told. I do have two or three small bubbles that never disappeared so for the folks that are obsessive about this should try elsewhere. At any angle that the screen can be viewed from the bubbles are invisible. I have to really, really try looking for them.

The surface stays clean. Occasionally I wipe it off on my shirt but this is rare. Fingerprints are a non-issue. Yesterday I did have to clean off some sticky residue (pecan pie???) with a damp paper towel but that was a first in nearly a month. The brilliance of the screen is impressive. I love the look. The screen is responsive at all times. I have not noticed any degradation of touch due to installation.

I have not done a drop test on it yet. I hope I never do but I'll report back if and when it occurs.

I love the oleophobic glass and vow to never go back. Reading reviews posted since my purchase I might consider the less expensive Iloome in a similar configuration (real glass, 9h, oleophobic coating) but I'm very happy with my Spigen.

Decided to go with the Spigen GLAS.tR. It should arrive tomorrow or tuesday.
I hope I dont mess up the installation,
because I have never applied a screen protector before (normal or glass).

So the basic things to do would be;
-a hot shower (to get rid of floating dust)
-cleaning fingers and screen with alcohol swipe before starting

Anything else I should take to consideration beforehand?
Also, would the home-button be the safest place to start the alignment?

From what I've seen/heard, the "hinge" method is closest to fail-safe & keeping fingerprints off of the protector.

Yesterday my Iloom 8H protector started coming apart below my home button. Pieces just chipped off.
I sent an email to Iloom about the problem so probably won't here from them until Monday or so.
I did notice on there website, they do not offer the 8H anymore, just the thicker 9H. The 9H has rounded edges so is less likely to chip.
I'm assuming there have been problems with the older designs.
I'll keep you posted.

I have the iloome ScreenMate Flex 8H plus its a flexible tempered glass. I love this tempered glass plus its not as thick as the 9H. 0.12 compare to the 9H which is 0.26

I'm assuming there have been problems with the older designs.
I'll keep you posted.
Iloome contacted me yesterday. They wanted the Amazon order#, a picture of the damage and an explanation of how the damage happened. No explanation was given because I don't know how it happened. I've never dropped my phone.
Today Iloome responded stating I must have dropped the phone causing the damage and would discount another if I wanted to replace it. They also stated it's been more than 60 days from my purchase. Great warranty! NO SALE! I'm going to buy something else.

I received my Brando 0.20mm tempered glass premium protector yesterday. Quite minimalist Packaging. The protector only had one protective film on the adhesive side, not on the face as described in install instructions. Install was pretty smooth. But problem even after 24+ hours is that the right bottle side is not adhering. There is strange line just at the point where protector doesn't adhere.

The oleophobic coating seem very nive. Clarity is excellent. Screen is soooo smooth. Not used to it yet.

Not a fan of the cutout for the home button. It's not an oval like the home. It is an upside down U. Meaning the bottom is open. Not a deal breaker for me. But would prefer a more custom close fit.

Contacted brando support. Heard back already and they asked if I would like a replacement. I said yes. But not yet received a reply or confirmation.

For those that really want to try a tempered glass protector, but don't want to spend 30, the one I posted is well worth it. It's less expensive than some of the premium screen protectors. It doesn't have oleophoebic properties, but so smooth and even easier to clean than the regular glass

I hope I dont mess up the installation,
because I have never applied a screen protector before (normal or glass).

So the basic things to do would be;
-a hot shower (to get rid of floating dust)
-cleaning fingers and screen with alcohol swipe before starting

Anything else I should take to consideration beforehand?
Also, would the home-button be the safest place to start the alignment?
I used to hate putting on a screen protector... always would have a bubble that wouldn't come out... or a speck of dust that floated by... or something. I used the hot shower routine as well, and only got myself hot and bothered.

Then I learned how to apply the (non-liquid) screen protectors properly when I had a GN2. Scotch tape is your friend! (painter's tape too).When I bought my GS4, I installed the cheapo store brand screen protector on the spot in 2 minutes. It's been so perfect I haven't bothered to put on my iSmooth screen protectors yet... after 7 or 8 months of daily use.

After cleaning the screen with a microfiber cloth, I roll over the screen with a loop of scotch tape around my finger... and that really gets off stuff I don't notice. Then align and apply the protector. If you inadvertently get debris under the screen, use a strip of tape to lift the edge, and another strip of tape to get the offender off the bottom of the protector, and reapply the SP. Repeat as necessary. Smooth out any bubbles with the MF cloth.

Here's one way from our friends over at xda:
Guide: Perfect Screen Protector Installation Technique - xda-developers

Works great. Lasts a long time.

Who doesn't hate putting those darn things on lol.

Thanks for the helpful link there!

I know I usually start out by buying the ones from Verizon, they aren't too overpriced.

So, the Verizon protectors are just regular protectors, not tempered glass?

Define "best deal" in your estimation. If you're looking to not spend a lot of money, there are plenty of options on ebay. For regular screen prtoectors, I've always recommended SGP

If you're looking for a matte/anti-glare protector, I recommend this:

iSmooth...I am VERY happy with the screen protector and customer service. It's a bit hard to get on straight because it fits the exact size of the screen. If you touch the bezel, it may not lay flat. Took me all three protectors to get it right. I called the company and they quickly sent me three more as a backup. No orange peel effect and VERY smooth. Its actually quite nice under the finger. Read reviews on amazon and purchase with confidence...you won't be disappointed.

I was gonna get an iLoome screen protector for my LG pad but then settled for a GEARMAXX SP after being recommended to me. You can pick one up from ebay for about 10 bucks. Here it's a video of it:

I simply cannot resist the enjoyment of the pure tactile experience of the bare naked, Oleophobic coated display on today's top of the line smartphones.

Both with or without using the S-Pen, nothing beats a clean clear display. By carrying a small microfiber cloth to wipe off finger prints from time to time, my displays always look brand new throughout the year or so I typically use each phone.

Carried in a dedicated front pocket, all by itself, risk of scratching is mitigated.

Well now that I've jinxed myself, I'm bound to incur a massive scratch at any moment

I had a Defender on my Bionic and loved it. But the screen protector got really beat after two years. I ordered a Defender for my Note 3 and am wondering if I can use another screen protector instead, with the thought of possibly removing the built-in screen protector.

Any thoughts on my options?

I finally had the time to put into installing the replacement Brando Premium.
A PERFECT drop again. no dust. this time, the entire right side is not sticking. about 1cm from the top to the bottom. I clearfully removed, cleaned again with alcohol/microfiber etc. dried. another perfect drop. it sticks everywhere execpt for that far right side.

I'm wondering if my luck is just that bad. could my Note 3 display be flawed and not actually flat on that edge? What the heck?

I can see the line along the entire right side in the photo

thoughts anyone? Why reasons could the be on why two different protectors are not sticking on the same side. I cleaned the entire display the same way. The display has never had anything (even from day one) on it except protection. Started out with PET, but its always had something. The microfiber and the alcohol cleaned any potential oil off. I'm stumped.

If I get my money back, what brand are people most happy with now? Still the spigen? or the iLoome?

thoughts? suggestions?

Third time is a charm?

I ordered the Brando Tempered Glass. Packaging was good. Price was good. Reputation seemed respectable. Product went on smoothly, accept as per previous posts, part of the protector didnt adhear (it was not a cleaning issue).

Brando sent me a replacement display. Good thing, as after a few weeks of use, a small chip appeared near the home botton. I again cleaned the N3 very well. Steamy room and all. Another perfect lay/down install. Again with the lack of adhesion on the right side of display. I posted pictures earlier of that problem. And to my dismass, again with a chip near the home botton.

I contacted Brando. A few times. No reply led me to work with credit card to dispute the charge. Brando eventually contacted me. And said they next version of the display is now out. oval cutout for the home button rather than an open bottom. I said I would withhold negative critique until after it arrived. Its arrived. Steamed up the room. Rubbed display down with alcohol. micro fiber the whole deal. Screen looked pristine. I even placed the old protector askew from the edge to see if perhaps my display itself is somehow flawed and is not 100% completely flat. But as I hoped, the old Brando protector did not adhear alone the edge .. even if that edge was in the middle of the phone. So this proves (at least to me) that there is an issue with manufacture and how the adhesive gets to the edge.

I cleaned the screen AGAIN for the new display. A 3rd near perfect lay down. the home button was a bit to tight on the top. but some gentle rubbing/pushing the protector up got the protector to shift up about 1mm. And the best news. It adhered perfectly. go issues. no dust. It look very good. with the display off. I dont have to stare at those nasty lines where it didnt stick. Time will tell if the protector chips near home button. Will update if it does.

I have a hard time giving 5 stars, two thumbs up for a review. In the end, Brando did stand by the product (they did send me two replacements). If you order, and get the 2nd generation/new version, that seems better. if the 3rd attempt was my 1st.. I would say 5 stars no doubt. But I guess because of quality control is at least raises the eyebrows. For the price, it works well and beat the Spiegen pricing. Good luck and enjoy!

Dude, 16.9$ USD is too high price for screen protector. There're many screen protectors on Ebay in 10$ USD.

I'm using Crystalusion, about 3 months now. Hard to comment on something you can't see or feel , but so far so good. The screen is so good I just didn't want to put a protector on it. Have used Zag on previous phones and remove it after 18 months or so and take my chances from there.
I have a full wallet style case with the GN3 which covers the face when not in use, so that keeps it pretty safe for a start.
Have to say though, when I get smudges on it, it cleans so easily with a cloth, looks like new with a wipe.
Time will tell.
