    So I'm really picky about my screen and cannot stand having anything at all under the screen protector; I have a small little thread no longer than 0.5 cm and it's driving me crazy. What I was wondering is how likely is it that I'll get stuff under the wet application screen protectors such as the Phantom Skinz or Skinomi ones? I have no experience with wet application protectors and wanted to know if I would be better off getting one of them.

    Thanks

    I already love this thread and would love to hear the pros/cons/differences. I feel more comfortable with dry/sticky covers as the whole liquid/wet idea scares me with my brand spankin' new, 1st smartphone ever.

    Can anybody also provide a general list of the screen protectors and whether it's dry or wet? ie skinomi is wet etc? With all the different threads I'm getting so confused. :)

    I've always used BSE for all my devices,, Android, iPod, Blackberry... it's a wet application---they have always worked real well for me. Not so sure what you mean by "get stuff under", you mean while applying or later on??

    Having stuff end up under the screen protector during -> after application.

    I had ghost armor (wet application) for my Eris and I loved it, it was flawless (Best Buy installs it). I am just waiting for it to come in for the incredible now. Of course verizon will tell you that wet application ones void your warrenty.

    Just be careful not to get any water around your moisture detectors underneath the battery door! Set the phone on a dry towel.

    I've been a big fan of the Clear Protector brand as far as screen protectors go. Very reliable and comes with a lifetime warranty, they're always good at working with you if you have any problems.

    As far as getting stuff underneath the protector, I have always found that cleaning the screen with a "no lint cloth" works best for getting it perfectly clean before applying a protector. This is the kind of cloth you would get to clean your glasses with, doesn't leave any lint behind like a cloth towel or paper towel would.

    i use Phantom Skinz...I just lightly mist the screen protector and screen with water from a very fine spray mist bottle. work the skin onto the screen with the application tool starting at one end and wipe away the excess water. you wont even know it is there the next day.

    Regarding moisture and under the battery door -- does everyone's moisture detector (lower left hand side under battery door) say "void" in white on a black background? It kind of freaked me out the first time I saw it, b/c my Inc has been nowhere near any water. What does it look like when it gets wet? Does it turn red or something?

    That's not a moisture detector, that's a screw cover.

    And for the moisture detectors, yeah, they turn red.

    Go to best buy to get a zagg installed and you will be very happy.. They do a fantastic job. Mine looks great no hairs no dust.

    Do it yourself and you risk throwing away 15-20 dollars each try.
