    Best screen guard - Zagg. Probably the most expensive, but the best. I use their High Definition, case friendly series.

    Best case? That's a personal thing. I prefer a holster that fully protects the screen and the rear. You may hate a case like that. But in most cases (no pun intended), the carrier is irrelevant to the case.If someone has a case for the Verizon G2 that you like, it will probably fit the AT&T G2 or the Sprint G2 or a G2 sold by some obsure little carrier no one has ever heard of. Email the case manufacturer and ask. This accomplishes 2 things. 1) It lets yoiu know if the case will work and 2) it lets you know how hard they'll work for you. If they won't answer an email before they get your money, the chance that they'll answer one after they get it (like if you need warranty service) are extremely poor.

    I've used both Zagg and skinomi, I prefer skinomi. For about seven bucks on Amazon, it has slightly less orange peel feel, is made from the same polyurethane as Zagg's invisible shield, and has the same silly 'free' replacement where you just have to pay four bucks for shipping. Cases, though, are a tough one. I have a GreatShield case for my gs3. I just bought the phone less than a month ago. While I love the case, I'm switching to otterbox defender seeing as how I'm a roofer who worries a bit about my beautiful new pocket computer falling thirty feet to it's death.

    screen protectors are kind of users choice as well..... they all do the same thing..... some are a little glossier..... some show smudges more...... etc etc...... in the end a $3 protector and a $30 protector are going to protect the exact same

    as for cases...... thats wide open..... its more of an asthetically pleasing type deal..... decide if you want a then rubber bumper or a big bulky suitcase.... the real difference here is truely the protection..... the bulkier the better..... so its a tradeoff how much protection you want......

    as for verizon cases vs att cases vs tmobile cases vs etc etc.....

    most cases will fit any of them the same..... the phones between providers are nearly identical..... with 1 exception

    the VZW phone is thicker due to wireless charging....... so a case designed for VZW will fit all the others...... but a case designed for ATT will be a little snug on a VZW phone......

    for instance I bought a case designed for the others but I have a VZW phone.... its a 3 piece 'hybrid' (or bulky if you will) case...... it fits fine around the phone without a screen protector on it... however with the screen protector its just too tight.... bubbles constantly appear around the edges where the case is pressing against the protector........ I had to find a screen protector that was the perfect size to fit right inside the top shell of the case

    but since you mentioned you dont have a VZW phone any case or protector should work for you.. in the end its all users choice

    since you mentioned other accessories I will share my latest order.... I ordered an NFC speaker earlier..... in case you arent aware NFC is a close proximity wireless sort of like the little tag you use at gas pumps..... with this speaker you just bump your phone on it..... it turns on the speaker and also turns on the music player and bluetooth on your phone and starts your concert :)

    Copestag - not to take thread off topic, but does the NFC just signal the box on and it uses BT, or does it send audio over NFC?

    Me and the wife have spigen slim armor cases for our phones, mine is light blue hers is red. It has the slim form factor when covering the phone, but protects it like an otterbox. Btw the cases look "Absolutely Amazing"!!!! :0)

    it activates the bluetooth on the phone...... NFC only works for about 4 inches.... whereas the bluetooth has a longer range

    +1 for the Spigen slim armor ,i have the blue and it looks great.
    On the screen itself i have a Martin Fields protector a brand i have used for years and the only one i have come across that supplies a little protector for the camera lens.

    Another +1 for the Spigen Slim Armor. I have the Metal Slate color and it is gorgeous! It's not too thick yet it offers great protection against falls and has a lip to place the phone face down.

    Got it. Short enough to communicate with the smart tags, and phones put together and such... mainly for short strings to be exchanged. BT, yes, understood - probably tens of feet in comparison.

    Appreciate it.
