Default Best Screen Protector?

Please Login to Remove!

What in your opinion is the best screen protector for the 8700g?

Also (this should probably be under a separate question..), but what do you think is the best case that really protects the 8700g without being too overbearing? I am really not a fan of scratches on a phone, especially such a nice one, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a good protective skin (hopefully black in color) and also a nice belt clip. I use to use the Black Napa Leather Horizontal Pouch for the Tmobile Sidekick which was surprisingly well made, but I am still curious if anyone knows of anything that will really protect the 8700g well..

Thanks so much for your help in advance and I apologize if this has already been answered, I saw the seido skin option and a few others on here, but I am hoping to get some more ideas on cases as well as a screen protector...

Thanks again!

For simple and easy, try the Screen Patronus. Based on a host of rec's here on BBForums, I took the plunge and have to agree...they're crystal clear!!

I've always used boxwave screen protectors with my Treos. I just ordered on for my 8700g. I'll let you know what I think.

Default Screen Patronus - BB 8700f

After spending some time reviewing comments here on screen protectors, I purchased a pack of Screen Patronus. A sales rep confirmed by email that they were sending me the clear variety. Delivery from the US to the UK took only 5 days. To protect the screen until they arrived, I had left on the original thin plastic cover supplied by RIM. After cleaning the screen, I followed the directions and applied the patronus cover. Its a tight fit, and steady hands are needed. Once in place, the clarity was fantastic.

For anyone wondering which product to pick, I have no hesitation in recommending screen patronus.
