Question To protect or not?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys, I am a newbie here and I just got a brand new BlackBerry 8707g. It cost me a bundle but it's worth every penny. I previously owned the 8700g and I can say that BlackBerry has really outdone themselves again. The color display is really top notch, I am worried that I might scratch the screen, so I'm thinking of buying a high quality screen protector. Any recommendations?

Anyone ever heard about Expert Shield screen protectors? I've found their website on the internet and browse through it. They carry quite a lot of screen protectors even some for GPS device. I have decided to try their product out and ordered one for my BlackBerry 8707g. I have also ordered one from Best Skin Ever for my sister's Motorola Q as well to have a comparison. Will keep post about the comparison. Cheers.

I'm a huge fan of the Shieldzone Invisishields. I have them on my BB screens and they're great. Nice cut that lines up just right, and colors or brightness are not distorted by the film.

I recommend ScreenPatronus - ScreenPatronus, Screen protector - the difference is amazing.

Go here to read:

Hardware forum - http://www.blackberryforums.com/hardware-accessories/

To read up and inform yourself on what people use and think of these products.

But get something on there soon

Ooopppsss...sorry for the double message, I think I clicked twice on the post reply button. Does anybody know how to delete one off? I've tried but all I can do is edit it.

Hi there again, sorry for the misinformation as the best skin ever is a coverall so there is no point doing comparison with a screen protector, however, I order Expert Shield and Exim's screen protector. I have applied both Expert Shield's screen protector to my BB 8707g and Exim's to my sister's Motorola Q. Here is what I come up with

Expert Shield

PROS
1) Scratch resistant, very durable
2) Washable and reusable with tap water
3) High transparency and surface is smooth
4) Package comes with microfibre cleaning cloth and sticky tape
5) Almost no screen glare
6) Perfect fit

CONS
1) A tad confuse at the installation instruction

Exim

PROS
1) Scratch resistant, very durable
2) Silicone based adhesive leaves no residue
3) High transparency

CONS
1) Confusing installation instruction
2) Feels like writing on a small piece of paper

Conclusion
Both Expert Shield and Exim certainly risen to the occasion. After applying both protector and using it I found that both of them have no difference in terms of durability, visibility and usability, Expert Shield's screen protector has a slight edge over Exim's though because of the screen's glare and it comes bundle with sticky tape to remove the screen protector if needs be and a microfibre cleaning cloth. I like the fit of Expert Shield's screen protector on my BB 8707g better than Exim's on my sister's Motorola Q. Although I was a bit confused at first when putting Expert Shield's screen protector but it becomes quite obvious and easy once you understand the instructions, for Exim, my sister and I almost gave up trying to put it on at one time but after many trial and errors, we finally got it on. Lastly, neither my sister nor I like the idea or feeling of writing on a piece of paper, it just doesn't feel right.

That's all for now. Hope this helps.

Hey there!! I have recently come across a site call expertshield.com.sg, i think it's expert shield's sister website. It has a video showing how to properly put on a screen protector, I think this is particularly useful for someone who's putting on a screen protector for the first time. Hope this helps.

Cheers

I bought a screen protector from shieldzone for my 7130e. It fit perfectly, is easy to see through, tough as nails and doesn't accidently come off. I would use them again, their product is as advertised. It was either 8 or 11 bucks, can't remember.

Thanks, bmacaluso, I have another option for screen protectors now. Will try that one out if I'm shopping for screen protector for my next gadget. I might even do another comparison between the screen protectors that I have used before.
