The one that came with mine you couldn't use as it has the phone specifications printed all over it.
They scratch .... trust me. :smokingsomb:
These screens scratch easier than my Droid X. I am on my second s3 and both screens have scratched without even dropping the phone. I have no idea how I did it super careful with the phone. Luckily my wonderful replacement has restarted twice today and stock browser keeps freezing whenever I try cpmmenting any social media site facebook, or twitter. It just freezes. I tried chrome same issue. Its going back tonight. Refurbished phones are garbage. I suppose the scratch was already there and I just did not notice it until Wednesday.
Skinomi = awesome
for a free screen protector, its not bad. :smokingsomb:
ok.. so I saw this today and couldn't resist anymore. ordered it.. yay! can't wait for mine to come..! i'll post pics of it after i put it on.

I hope it works better than the Tridea version I just took off of my phone. I had the Rearth Ringbo and hated them. Rearth sent me one of the Tridea curved screen screen protectors as compensation. At least a third of the screen edge kept peeling up. It went on ok but it just wouldn't stay on. I complained again to Rearth and they were really great about it again and this time refunded my money, including shipping. Very good customer service but I don't like their screen protectors.
I have also decided that I absolutely HATE screen protectors with the oleophobic anti-fingerprint/smudge coating on them. Both Ringbo and Tridea have that coating. I've been a big fan of Spigen Steinheil crystal screen protectors on my Droid X and a couple of other phones currently in use by my family. No crappy coating, just clear and easy to wipe clean. They are just about perfect. Hopefully they did a better job than Tridea did with their version of the curved screen protectors. Good luck and keep us posted.
My spg curved showed up today.
Things i noticed:
1. The protector is very thin. It's sandwiched between 2 pieces of plastic. I put the front piece of plastic on first. It worked fine LOL. Didn't read instructions
2. Clarity is good. Doesn't cause any pixelation or blurring.
3. It's nice and smooth. Doesn't cause any skipping when i use Swype.
4. Its cut about a half millimeter from the edge
5. You get 2 in the package. I didn't pay attention so i didn't know that.
Now i wait for my oem samsung cases to arrive to see if they play well together. Hopefully they'll be here by early next week
Sgp/steinheil crystal curved with oem samsung case from the 2 pack.
I really like the screen protectors from SGP. I just received the new curved crystal for my SG3. Looks great on the phone.
Cant find a case that works with it. It peels up the protector all the time!!
That's really disappointing to hear. The Tridea version that I had peeled up too but it wasn't just because of the case. *It started to peel up before I put the case on. I was hoping the Spigen version would be better. Maybe someone else will have better luck. Did it come with more than one? If so, did you try the other one?
I have the oem samsung case on as well. No peeling yet
Don't use one... my screen is free of marks after 2 months of use. I'm not very careful either!
I ordered my curved crystal on Friday. I hope it ships today. Anyone else have it and wouldn't mind posting a review?
Received an email from Best Skins Ever about their improved film. Offering 25% off all skins now thru Wed. so I ordered one for both the wife and I's S3. See how they are. Used BSE for years on my Blackberries.
i Have the Acase dual layer case. Fits nice with no peeling. I think that the incipio sylicrilic will also work nice with it. I think that any case that fits tight is going to grab the edge screen protector when putting on the case and make it lift. i.e. i think any TPU case might do this.
As I sit and wait for SPG to get here, I noticed this morning that my screen protector has a massive scratch in it. I am really hoping that it didn't make the screen. Verizon's screen protector is horrible!!!
Are you talking about a screen protector you bought from Verizon and applied to the screen or are you talking about the one that came on the phone? If it's the latter, that's not supposed to be left on the phone. My daughter had one from the Verizon store on her old phone for a while and it did fine. It wasn't the clearest I've seen but it didn't get very scratched up. Just be glad you had something on your phone.
I put a tempered glass 8H rating on mine with the following:
Spectre by XGEARLIVE
Worth every penny. Extra layer of super strong tempered glass - great feel, perfect clarity
Sweet !! I posted this a while back http://androidforums.com/4722209-post341.html which includes the video / article Droid Life did on these. Glad to see you got one & like it. Thinking about trying these in the future.
No an actual screen protector that they hacked together and out galaxy s3 on the label. I am hoping its not all the way to the screen! Still have not checked not sure that I will. I am scared
Do you have any pictures of it?
There are some great pics at the bottom of that Droid Life article.
