Arrow screen protector ONLY

Please Login to Remove!

where do you guys recommend to buy a clear screen protector? I've read threads where some of you have been ordering full body skins from Best Skin Ever and Shieldzone. But all im looking for is just a clear screen protector not a full body suit. Im avoiding ebay cause the unknown quality of the screens sold there.

ScreenPatronus, Screen protector - the difference is amazing.

They are also on eBay.

I have bought from them over several years, and they have a very low price for 3 screen protectors per pack, and quick shipping. For the low price, I normally buy two packs at a time. I change the screen protector every 2-3 months.

BestSkinsEver...about $5 for a screen protector, fits great, looks great, great service, and tough protection. I was steered to them by a former invisible Shield user who had bought both and said Best Skins was the same for a better price...

Another vote for Best Skins Ever. I've said it before, buy the DIY sheet and cut it yourself. You'll have enough material to do multiple devices (probably 3-4) effectively making the cost around $2 per screen. You'll never really have to replace it as it will most likely survive longer than you keep the phone.

Oh and it's probably worth repeating my "trick" for creating the template for cutting the sheet. Simply photocopy your phone, a real photocopy...real machine and all, and you will have yourself a perfect template to trace and then cut.

I prefer invisibleshield.com, I've tried a couple others and the invisibleshield is uber durable. I slide it in and out of my jeans pocket and it has never pealed off. You cannot see it when the device is on at all, any angle. If the device screen is off you see a slight egg shell type of texture.

Good stuff

You don't have to cut any template for either BestSkinsEver or Invisible Shield, they sell pre-cut protectors fitted to the device. I have them (BestSkins) on my Pearl, my wife's Pearl, and my son's iPod - love 'em.

You'll be happy...and I don't mean to attack you, but is there any reason in particular you didn't choose the DIY sheet? Is it because you would rather not bother cutting it out yourself?

I'm a "marketing guy" and just like to see why a customer chooses one product over another when they are both the same, but one is cheaper.

I hope you guys don't think I'm belittling the OP, I'm not. Lately I've been working to figure out if consumers favor price over convenience. In recent years people generally chose convenience, but I've seen some pretty convincing data as of late that seems to suggest people will choose based on price.

Maybe this is a bad example at <$10, but still. Curious.

Good question, fair. For a couple bucks, I would choose convenience.
I think it is partially the economic conditions we have been living under the past decade.

Yes, because of the convenience of the screen being precut to exact fit. Didnt want to bother measuring and cutting the screen myself even though that itself a simple job.

Should I get the Screen Protector only, or the Total Body Protector?

Anyone recommend getting the Total Body, or is it prone to peeling off?

read back through this thread and many many others for good advice on that.

I am quite happy with simply the screen protector.
