    also worth mentioning, on my Note and SGS2, while I didn't notice any sensitivity issues in normal use, games like Flick Golf were just ever so slightly more difficult after installing the Steinheil Ultra Clear. I tried before and after with the Nano + GS3 + Flick Golf and I'd have to say it didn't affect playability at all.

    I had issues lining everything up right, had to realign multiple times...but that's just user error, not the screen protector :p

    They go on pretty easily. First impressions are good. It's a bit resistant at first (probably from the leftover residue of the tabs) but after a few uses and wipes that resistance goes away. The clarity is very good. It does not cover the entire front of the device but I don't think you will find any dry application screen protectors that will due to the curvature at the edges which would cause lift issues.

    Just make sure you're not in a dusty environment when applying and clean your phone real good beforehand :)

    I went with flex hd. The nano didn't reach the sides of my case so I had a gap exposed either side.
    Flex covers much more but I'm going to order the new crystal when it releases as the flex is a bit too rubbery feeling & I like it smooth & glass like

    I ordered the Nano and now they are taking pre-orders of the curved crystal. I will more than likely return the Nano and wait for curved crystal.

    Also, they have changed their Neo Hybrid case. I can't wait to see the reviews once these are released. :)

    Just for those asking about Steinheil. I ordered the FLEX HD ones. They both came wrinkled and jacked up. Threw them both away and had ZAGG install front and back. +1 on ZAGG!!!

    Steinheil sucks.

    Your Steinheil protectors came damaged and you threw them away instead of getting a replacement or refund? Nice.

    "Steinheil sucks"...Yeah, that's reasonable.:rolleyes: And what does "Jacked up" mean? I don't think I've ever seen anyone say "Steinheil sucks" on any forum. My family and I (And a few of my friends) have been using Steinheil screen protectors for a couple of years now on numerous phones and we have had nothing but excellent experiences with them. Steinheil is consistently one of the most highly praised and recommended screen protectors out there. If you had a problem with yours I suspect it was either operator error or a rare product defect and from what I've read Steinheil is very good about taking care of it's customers. The only criticism I've seen of Steinheil is that their screen protector that goes edge to edge on the SGS3 may tend to lift up at the edges because of the curved screen on the SGS3. But this has been said of pretty much all dry application full coverage screen protectors. It's a problem unique to the SGS3 as far as I've seen.

    I don't have any personal experience with Zagg and I know they are very popular. But in the past few weeks that I've been researching screen protectors for my (Future) SGS3 and I've seen several negative reviews of them. I've seen the words "Orange peel" more than a couple of times. No thanks, I don't need anything other than a perfectly smooth, bubble free and crystal clear screen protector and that's all I've ever experienced with Steinheil. That being said I decided to go with another brand this time (Rearth Ringbo) just because I saw good reviews on it and I wanted to give something else a try. No dissatisfaction with Steinheil. And not long after I ordered them I see that Steinheil has a new "Curved Crystal" version for the SGS3 coming soon. I haven't used the Rearth yet but I wish I'd waited for the new Steinheil.

    Obviously you're entitled to your opinion and the freedom to post it. But when I read something as unreasonable as "Steinheil sucks" and a phrase as nonsensical as "Jacked up" I have the right to give my opinion too.

    I just got the nano protector from steinhill a few days ago put it on and have to say it is great. Can't even tell its there and it is cut a little smaller so when I put my case mate tough case on it it doesn't lift up at all,and the case covers all the way to where the screen protector starts. I have had issues with full screen protectors lifting up because there wouldnt be enough room for the safe. Steinhill is coming out with a little more screen coverage with a new protector but as I had thought and after talking to them there is a risk of it lifting up when a full case is put on. Anyways just wanted to say the nano preotector is awesome.

    If the flex is a wet mount type then it shouldn't have any trouble with curved edges. These type come in full body protection and covers all edges.

    also check out best skins ever for a similar product at 1/2 the cost. If you google it they get very good reviews.

    I personally use these. At $1.50 each they're practically free with no discernable difference than Zagg, but these have no noticeable orange peel 2-Pack Samsung GALAXY S3 S 3 III i9300 Stealth Shieldz

    I think alot of people are over thinking the whole curved glass / screen protector won't fit properly topic. Yes, the phone has a curved screen, but not enough for this be an issue. So don't base your decision on what screen protector to get when this concern is a non issue.
  13. hal1

    hal1 Well-Known Member

    It's not the curve of the screen that's the concern. It's the curved edges that prevent the screen protectors from staying down which is the issue. That said, any of the wet type should hold anywhere, edge to edge.

    Yeah..still think its a non issue IMO. But , to each their own.

    It may be a non issue to you but it's not a "Pebble Blue versus Marble White" type of issue. It's not a matter of opinion whether or not the edges are peeling up for some people. It's a fact that they are peeling up for some people. hal1 is absolutely correct. It's the edge of the glass that is causing some screen protectors to peel up at their edges. This isn't just an anecdotal report. It's been specifically addressed by Steinheil and at least one other screen protector manufacturer. If you don't mind having the edges of your screen protector peeling up on your otherwise pristine, top-of-the-line phone then the appearance of your phone must not be very important to you. I want mine nice and smooth on the front. :)

    I can honestly say I've never even heard of half of the offerings in the poll.

    No mentioning of SGP? Skinomi? Rearth Ringbo?

    So I've had my phone since Friday, and installed the SGP Nano protector Saturday morning. This morning I noticed an L shaped scratch on the screen protector... Better the protector than the screen, but seriously 2 days??? I'm also noticing some other blemishes that were not there right after the install... No drops or extreme conditions, just my normal usage.

    Say what you want about the look and feel of the Zagg protectors, but my new SGP Nano has as many blemishes in 2 days as the Zagg on my DX accumulated in a year and a half...

    I have a quick question. When I pre ordered my phone, I ordered a screen protector that verizon was offering. However, I am going to order a Wrapsol screen protector. But it will be a week til it gets here. Should I put the verizon one on for the time being? Or are they hard to get off and could possible cause damage or marks?
  23. svensett

    svensett Well-Known Member

    Better to be safe than sorry. I'd put the screen protector on immediately, but that's me. Just ask yourself how you would feel if you got a scratch on your screen a day before the new protector arrived...

    SGP Ultra Nano Clear was a pain to install. The tab on the backside was difficult to fully remove since it was "stuck" near the front tab. I had to use a pair of tweezers to remove this(without fingerprints getting in the way). Even then it didn't match up correctly, therefore, having to reapply and I ended up getting a fingerprint smudge on the lower right corner(which isn't that big of a deal but still). This contrasts greatly from when I installed my GSP screen protector on my Droid X.
