Default Seidio Ultimate Screen Guard Review

Please Login to Remove!

Unfortunately I do not have any pictures (yet). Just took a night exam and I'm exhausted. I'll be extremely busy this weekend so I won't be able to get pictures up until early next week. My apologies!

I placed the ultimate screen guard on top of the BSE full body skin because I didn't want to take off the BSE and reapply it afterwards.

The ultimate screen guard does "stick" with static and holds on very tight. No adhesive which is great. The only problem is air bubbles, but keep in mind I have the BSE full body skin under. When the screen is lit, you can't even tell the ultimate screen guard is there. I tried scratching it first with my fingernail and then used my keys. Applying different amounts of pressure and lo! no scratches on the screen guard. I'm impressed.

The screen guard, well...protects only the screen and not the whole face of the Pearl. I wonder how it would look with the ultimate screen guard under the BSE full body skin...

I tried taking the ultimate screen guard off and wow! it comes off so easy. I love the no adhesive/static feature. I corrected it and there is almost no air bubbles. Looks great!

My rating: 9.7/10 since it claims what it does and it protects the area where Seidio claims. Hope this is helpful!!

Thanks again David!

Sorry, have not used the above in awhile, so you're it.

no BSE under the guard and lit to really highlight the edges of the guard:


I haven't tried to scratch the guard - too chicken to actually succeed, but very happy with the clarity and overall quality. do wish it were just a leeettle bit bigger so it wouldn't be so hard to place correctly.

I used it for about a day before I put the skin on. I used the SDA case and had no problems with catching edges on that. honestly though I would be concerned in the long run. but have no experience to back it up.

What prevented it from being a 10/10?

they need to remake this with a trackball cutout and have it extend past the blackberry sign so that when you have a skin or case on you get full face protection.

my skin covers the bottom edge. if you go any lower there you run into all sorts of 3D curve issues. extending up past the bb logo would be good. maybe round it off to match the skin/case cutout. that would look cool.

I can not get rid of the annoying air bubble at the top left.
