    But... How it works in the sunny days outside? And it's sliding or like the invisible-shield that I have heared that it's rubbish?

    its nice in the sun. i mean of course if its reflecting directly off the sun it will blind you but everythings very visible without a glare.

    Masonator - I think it is funny you "ask" if you will be purchasing it. So let's all decide for you. I say YES. You will be.

    Secret Asian - care to post a link to this reflective cover? Even an ebay link.

    That's pretty cool. I think I may purchase one. I did see an auction with 2 for $4.99 (free shipping).

    its kinda hard to see in the sunlight when brightness set to low. but i mean for less than $5 its way worth it. i say buy the 2 pack and if you dont like it sell the other cover for $5 to get your money back.............craigslist. lol

    Get ready to laugh....

    So as mentioned I got the screen protectors.

    Pros: Looks very cool. Super slick, like the factory protector, but much thicker. I think if something hit it, or I even used a knife point on the screen it would be protected. It is a really thick plastic, and feels durable. I love the mirror finish of the device screen now. Bling, but not to much. Perfect.

    Cons: I did have to jack up my brightness, which shortens battery life somewhat. It has a slight moray rainbow pattern. Very easy to look past but took a bit of understanding as to why it existed. The aforementioned thickness makes the plastic not flush with the screen. Not a dealbreaker in any stretch.

    Me: I got the 2 pack. Hilarious Engrish on the pack. The package has a small card for pushing out air bubbles and a small cloth for cleaning prior to placing the film down. The film is sandwiched between 2 throwaway plastic layers, one to protect the shiny silver and the other to protect the adhesive (safe for your device) side. I actually got the shiny side to stick to my phone via a static like stick. I pulled away the film on the other side and had this very tacky not so shiny side collecting all my fingerprints. It was then I realized that I had it applied reverse. Oh am I glad I got 2. So enjoy my mistake and hopefully you won't make it too. (I laughed, after I realized my mistake. Hopefully you enjoy it.)

    Air Bubbles: I took my time and applied it really slowly and still had a few. I used a real credit card and slowly worked them out, and then about 24 hours later the slight "circle" where the bubble had been disappeared. Be aware that this was a bit annoying until it did, but patience paid off.

    good description, but ive never had any air bubbles. i dont even use a card and ive installed 4 already on mine and some friends phones. its way better than not having the mirror. theres way more pros than cons. i say go with it!

    The Air bubbles are clearly the user's application/installation. As you do more I could see having less/none. And as I said if you looked at my phone now you would not see any.

    I just noticed that right now the mirror screen saver has a deal going where you buy one you get one free. Just click on the link above that SecretAsianMan posted and its simple. They only cost a dollar plus shipping and handling. Just wanted to pass that on to ya all. :)

    I would like to know if they make non mirrored ones too? I had a friend with a G1 ask. They like the slick feel and the fact it doesn't look like I have a shield (no air bubbles.)

    Ah, i'd be interested but alas, i would need to up my brightness setting just to see, and down goes my battery life =(

    I am curious though as to the durability and maybe the lifespan of sticker. Does it leave scratch marks on it?

    I didn't have to up my brightness any. They really do work great and look sweet. Also, don't feel bad Skeptic, I messed my first one up also. Lol!

    Ah, even on low brightness while outdoors? With my current user habit, i tend to set my power management app on low battery setting, lowering my brightness significantly. That's why i'm worried the reflective surface may be too much for me.
