Screen protector?

41 posts in this topic

Posted

The thing I'm looking for most in a screen protector (other than being quite thin and preferably unnoticeable, of course) is one that makes the screen easy to glide your finger/thumb across. I'm not too bothered if the sharpness/brightness/colour of the screen is reduced slightly, I just don't like when my thumb sticks to the screen.

I think a "matt" feel (as opposed to "glossy"/"shiny"/"ultra clear") is what I'm looking for.

I've read that anti-glare protectors work like this, though I'm yet to find definitive reviews that state which are good for ultra smooth finger gliding.

Can anyone advise me of any good protectors like this?

I have bought both anti glare screen protectors and normal ones. The anti-glare ones (matte) that reduce finger prints and smudges have the downsize of degrading the image quality. They have this grainy texture which becomes visible and it's quite annoying. So after trying that for a while I went back to the normal glossy ones that do not alter image quality but are pretty much a fingerprint magnet.

As for an external protection I bought a transparent hard case and I'm pretty satisfied with it. Solid and not so bad looking.

Which anti-glare ones have you tried?

Do you have any photos to compare the image quality with one on compared to without?

Got myself a martin field too on Saturday. The display is crystal clear... I like it a lot... the cons aside from finger prints I got scratches the first day I use it with a stylus... very upset :D . Not sure how others feedback on the scratch resistance!

After reading your post I googled gadgetshieldz and found their product was well reviewed. I've been desperate to get a proper screen protector as I was still using my Omnia with the temporary protector that comes fitted to the device. I sent for it and have had it fitted for about a week now and I can say that it seems to be an excellent product. It was far easier to fit than I thought it would be and it appears to be extremely tough and clear and it protects the whole phone not just the screen. Best bit was it was only about £3.75, sent all the way from India to the UK.

Thanks for the recommendation.

I'm using Vikuiti DQC-160 which is really great and worked fine also on my omnia1, no scratches after months only a little bit of dust in the lower corners (after months)!

Absolutly satisfying :)

I had recently bought Samsung omnia and it is well featured phone and it have decal skin on it that provides it trendy and unique look. These information as how to protect your phone from external damages is very interesting. I am looking for the Samsung phone skin covers for it as they are best in all.
