    Having the Blue ( 32GB ) myself I'm not sure where people are getting the purple from at all ? The home button maybe ?, but the overall device not at all. Being the UK fan you are keep the white phone & pickup a blue back then you can have the best of both worlds & show support for your Cats. :playingball:

    But, I like bluple.....

    Added:

    I have the blue 32 now and has the new kernel dated July 4. Reception is not any better and COULD be a tad less. Will review more when I get home. None the less, about 5 dBm points less. No effect on download speed, so not sure what to think for now.

    Blue is big scoops better than the white- IMO.

    For a guy, I would have to agree. However, as a girl, I was sucked in by the stunning white beauty, which provides such a lovely contrast to the sparkly pink case. :)

    Giving the HD ONE MORE TRY...Best Buy put a new one on tonight. I have to leave my case off for TWO DAYS. If it still peels up after that, I'm going back to the original. :(

    Let me know how it works out for you. I think I'm just going to leave my original ZAGG on for now though. Dude at Best Buy did a great job putting this one on, centering is awesome & not a single bubble anywhere. But again, keep me updated in case I need to replace this one for some reason or for future devices.

    I bought the screen protectors from VZW for $10 after discount and they put it on for free. Did good job too. I would not have.

    As far as cases, the VZW plastic clamshell with built in stand and clip holster is nice. I also had one for the Razr.

    SGP is selling their awesome protection for the SGS3 on their website and Amazon. Their products are a million times better than anything ZAGG or any of the other screen protector OEMs put out.

    Is there one in particular you recommend? The one thing I DO like about ZAGG is the warranty...if it gets damaged, they replace it. I'm not familiar with SGP products - do they have any warranty?

    The S3 has Gorilla Glass 2, why do you need a screen protector?

    Anything that goes in a pocket or purse with change and / or keys needs a screen protector. Gorilla Glass is harder to scratch, not impossible.

    Yeah, I found out the hard way when I put my phone in the same pocket as my cut diamond collection :p

    ^This. Even though I have a pocket in my purse for my phone, all kinds of stuff gets in there with it. (Guys, if you've ever seen the inside of a woman's purse, you'll understand.)

    Especially a mother of little boys. In addition to keys and coins, they have matchboxes and other assorted toys to entertain children in waiting rooms.

    When these screen & screen protector companies do these test videos to show how their products don't scratch, how about instead of using keys they use bits of sand. That will be the real test !!!

    Cannot recall if they have lifetime warranty, but the model you are looking for is ultra optics. Super thin and oleophobic. They have a new model that has the matte finish, but also dissipates any glare.

    I have had nothing but poor experiences with ZAGG, so I went to SGP instead (at least with any of the compatible devices).

    Seems if the protector gets damaged, the display is toast by default. What good is warranty on the protector? ;)

    You can get a pretty deep scratch on a ZAGG & it not mess up the screen. My dog scratched my ZAGG on my DROID Charge & I feared the worst. When I removed it, no scratches. ZAGG sent me a new one no questions asked. Just make sure if you buy it at a retailer you register it online so your covered. If you buy it on ZAGG.com they register it for you automatically.
