    Installed my clarivue last night. It was really easy to install.

    This really helps with visibility outside, the screen isn't reflective like a mirror anymore. The touch screen doesn't feel as good as naked, but it repels fingerprints so I think it's worth the trade off.

    Excuse the dust. :eek:

    Notice any slight bluriness/dimmer color?

    Very nice. If the fingerprints annoy me with the Ultra Clear I may get the Anti-Glare. Could you take a pic with the screen on?

    I have the same question too. Is the clarity minutely affected?

    How much and where did you get it?

    EDIT: Ah Never mind I found their website. 4-8 day back order:(

    Does anyone know if there are any other decent/good anti fingerprint screen protectors available for the Evo? I've got my body cases picked out, but need to find a screen protector!

    How's the fit as in, how close to the edge does the screen protector reach?

    Kinda hard to tell from the photo

    It does affect the clarity a little bit. If you've seen the iPhone antiglare protectors from the Apple store, it looks almost the same.

    I've added a full size version of the first pic, and a pic of the screen on.

    one thing about the screen i'm not noticing on this phone or any other photos are the grid dots for the capacitive screen that the incredible so blatantly showed... anyone seeing it on the EVO?

    Grid dots? Sorry, I'm a noob, but I have not heard this mentioned before.

    don't remember where it was but in a review you could CLEARLY see the dots used in the capacitive layer of the screen bright as day.

    if you don't know what i'm talking about it's what all capacitive screens use to sense where you are touching basically they have "sensors" lined up in a grid across the screen... on the incredible you could actually see the "sensors" and it looked irritating as hell

    Hmmm......... interesting. Thanks for the reply, I will look into it. I imagine it would be irritating, heck, I know already that the cutouts in the Clarivue are gonna bug me :D


    *Edit* yeah, I just looked it up, those dots would bug. I hope the EVO doesn't have them.

    Highly doubt the EVO will have these dots noticeable... i *think* (i'm no expert, just a geek :eek:) that the reason the Incredible's grid is so obvious is that uber thin AMOLED screen it uses... i've seen some bare naked OLED's and they do tend to be slightly Opaque, and since the EVO uses an LCD< i doubt it will be seen. :D

    Just a head-ups, even though Clarivue is listed as back-order, several people on the forums, including myself, have had their skins ship 2 or 3 days after placing an order, so don't trust the 4-8 day thing.

    Also, although I like the prospect of anti-fingerprint, the fact that the screen isn't as smooth and appears dimmer is a turn-off, I wish they would make an anti-fingerprint screen that didn't sacrifice one over the other.

    I'm going to try the Ultra-Clear though, and I may just take it off if it bugs me too much.

    I ordered my Clarivue SP's on the 27th and the email said they were backordered, Then on the 28th I got a shipment notification. Hopefully they show up in time :D

    I just installed my anti-glare on my Evo. I had the ultra clear on my TP2 and looking at them side by side, I think I prefer the sharper look of the UC. I will leave the AG on my EVO for a week or two and see how I feel then.

    how does it feel compared to invisible shield? I wasn't much a fan of the really rubbery feel it gave since the evo is pretty much all screen

    For the record, what are the screen protectors that DOES NOT live fingerprints on the phone? That's my main concern.

    ZAGG InvisibleShield is out because I installed in the Incredible and fingerprints are all over this.

    What are the others?

    NO fingerprints whatsoever.
