    Moderator Request: Please Sticky this.

    Public Request: Please only post replies with pictures of screen protectors that you have applied to the droid incredible.
    Please refrain from posting unless you are putting up images of the screen protected phone.

    There is a lot of discussion about screen protectors and threads all over the place. Many of us are confused which screen protector is the best and many have ended up buying what we don't want, like me for instance. I hope to consolidate pictures here so that we can all know what protectors will look like and help others.

    This Review: Phantom Skinz Matte Finish

    I got the Phantom Skinz "matte finish" and here is a mini review with pictures.

    Application: A little tricky with the whole dipping in water and applying.
    Adhesive: Top notch, as if its part of the phone.
    Clarity: Very poor, speckles the screen a lot.
    Cost: $15ish for the full body from amazon.
    Anti Glare: Pretty good, almost no reflection.

    Here are the images:

    As you can see, it makes the screen pretty grainy, but sticks fantastically and does not bother the VZW silicone case.

    AF (note in these pics it looks out of focus....unfortunately it's the AF protector. Look at the "menu" "home" "back" and "search" keys)

    This thread has been moved to the Accessories section where it should have been created to begin with. The sticky status will be determined once it's clear whether there is general interest in this thread and its contents.

    :confused:

    Pretty sure we didn't have an Accessories section when this thread was created...

    Anyways, thanks for the pics to those who have contributed. I'm leaning towards the Boxwave as it seems to have the best combo of clarity, ease of application and feel.
