    I'm trying to find a good screen protector for the Nexus, that does not distort the resolution, tint, or gives off a texture, OR doesn't completely stick to the screen/comes up on edges.

    I've gone through some ebay dry installs, and the Skinomi techskin (a piece of **** really, not as advertised, scam).

    The skinomi distorted my resolution majorly, and it dents so easily, and the dents DO NOT go away - which I found so freaking stupid.

    Anyway, what do you guys use, and what suggestions? I don't want to spend anything above $10 for a protector. It's simply not worth it.

    I use a Zagg Invisible Shield screen protector. They're textured to prevent fingerprints and smudges, which it does fairly well, but some people dislike that because it does distort the screen slightly. I personally prefer it because it makes the phone much less slippery, and the Nexus S is definitely a slippery phone.

    PS: I moved your thread to the Accessories forum. I know the sub forums don't get as much attention, but they're there for a reason.

    The Nexus S forum in general has slowed down quite a bit compared to its heyday. I know the subject of Nexus S screen protectors has come up before, back when the phone was new. Maybe give the search button a try.

    Also, you can give the Android Accessories Forum a try. It doesn't have to be for the Nexus S specifically in order to get a feel for the best one.

    I just got one NS yesterday and I am looking for screen protector too!

    I use Realook on my vibrant and love it..
    However, the review on Amazon about Realook on NS is not that good..

    So I am wondering which one I should use..


    PS. I want clear one, but not the ZAGG orange peel feelings...

    I got my Nexus S in September? Maybe October? I have been using the Skinomi screen protector on it, wet install (which my boyfriend did) and it's an alright screen protector. I will agree with OnlySkillz, the marks that end up in the screen protector DO NOT 'self heal' as the website says.

    I do get fingerprints and face smudges occasionally on it too, but with a quick wipe they go away. I find the screen protector to be quite glossy too...but it sure does do the trick until someone can recommend a better one to me!

    I bought a pack of three off of ebay and they are ok. Easy to fit, just peel off one side, stick it to your screen, rub the bubbles out with the cloth then peel back the other side. Does the trick for me. Ive used invisible shield before and these are just as good. Little trickier to fit but if yoiu have the patients, then these are fine

    Bestskinsever.com

    It's similar to the Zagg, but seems to stick better. My zagg lasted 2 months, then I replaced it with the bestskinsever one and it's STILL on there since June.
