Default Clarity on screen...Boxwave vs. Shieldzone?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a difference in the quality of clarity with these 2 screen protection products as the Boxwave is $15 shipped and the Shieldzone is $10 shipped? Kind of curious if one provides a lot more optical clarity than the other.

Thanks.

Screenpatron is the way to go! There have been a few reviews out there by users on this forum with regards to screen protectors. Do a search for screen protectors there are some interesting and VERY helpful reviews.

I still say Best Skins Ever has the best one.

Just to clarify...I'm only getting a protector for the screen itself, not the whole phone.

Nothing compares with Boxwave for clarity - it's not even close. But, Boxwave always seems to have problems adhering well on the edges. Guess all the options have some sort of compromise - just gotta choose which is best for you.

When the Pearl first came out we did a side by side comparison of the ShieldZone and Best Skins Ever. The material was exactly the same.

BSE is $7 or so for covering the entire phone, as compared to $25 for ShieldZone's kit.

BSE for a screen only protector is even cheaper, I think about $5.

The clarity on my phone with BSE skin is superb and I am pretty picky since I play lots of videos.

I don't know about those other ones you mention, but comments from the past have said the ShieldZone clarity is the same as BSE since they are the same product.

Oh, ShieldZone, for the $25, gives you some strips for the side of the phone, BSE does not. But I bought 3 sets of BSE so to get free shipping, so the total was $21 as opposed to $25 for one ShieldZone set.

Just some things to think about.
