    looks good. is it cut out for the capacitive buttons or did you do that?

    Also, I ordered a 10 pack of mirrored screen protectors from ebay which turned out to be for the HD2, as it covers the front camera AND light sensor. fail? yup.

    Yeah, they should have. Oh well. You can have one of mine. it covers the whole screen except for the earpiece. Not sure how that effects the camera or light sensor but it's worth a try nonetheless lol.

    well, some protectors that cover the cam and light sensor can be trouble, but others dont bother it at all..you'll just have to try it out and see..

    I kinda like mirror protectors when they are clean, but they get so damn fingerprinty so easily..

    If you look at your phone while wearing mirrored sunglasses, does it create an infinite loop?

    I have it on mine too but do you have the sane problem where during the sun it is very hard to see your phone and in light you see your phone with a tint of weird colors? The colors are barley noticeable but it does make w difference

    While I'm not much for screen protectors, looks ok to me. I do however like the looks of your case. Is it aluminum? Any info on your case is much appreciated! Thanks.

    LOL, thanks, I needed a good laugh. By the way, it is hard for me to tell, but your avatar, is it CURLY of the 3 Stooges? It sure looks like him. Boy that takes me back.

    I had one on there for a while... but ended up taking it off... cause when I looked at my phone with my oakleys on...

    [​IMG]

    that's the way it looked all the time... with that polarized "rainbowish" over the top... so I went back to a regular clear overlay

    I got mine from RS at launch but didn't like it. Seemed like it made my screen darker.

    yeah.. tried the mirror..
    did not like how it was in the sun...

    looks great in standby..
    but I think it negatively affected my easy of use.
    so.. it was taken off

    Do you mind sharing pictures about your case? Is it just me or someone else feels that the case on the phone (better than ebay) is a little bit different than what's displayed on ebay?

    I had a mirrored one (bought by mistake of ebay) on a previous phone.
    I see your doing 2 thinks that drove me nuts.
    #1 is the rainbow effect you get with polarized glasses and tinted windows
    #2 is the screen looking darker.
    You didn't post a pic outside, but I bet it's near impossible to see your screen outdoors now.

    <edit> I see now that you noticed the outdoors problem</edit>
