Meh... Okay product with some flaws.

  • Jun 25, 2010

I've never used a screen protector before so I can't really compare to others or complain about features that may or may not be standard across all screen protectors. This review is solely the impression of this individual product with no comparison.

I found the process of "installing" the screen protector to be tedious and difficult. Mind you, I don't have the best motor skills to begin with but I was hoping for a quick and easy install; not five to ten minutes of adjusting, removing and trying again. Despite the mild frustration, I have to admit that using the screen squeegee was mildly fun and entertaining. It is nice that it covers the entire face so there is not the obvious difference between the screen and the rest of the face.

The adhesive around the second tab is really annoying and problematic with the excess adhesive left behind after removal. I would hope that this was an individual defect or user error as I have a hard time believing that this sort of problem would make it off the production line.

The protector also muddles the clarity of the screen slightly; not much, but enough that it could be especially bothersome for people who use their iPhone for movies and games or have a high expectation for crystal clear viewing. This might be something that is common among all screen protectors, but I don't know.

Finally, the screen protector, as I was using it, gave me the impression that it would, in fact, protect the screen. I didn't take a knife or rock to the screen to test this, but it feels durable and sturdy and it is comforting to know that keeping my phone in my pocket with my keys and junk will not damage the phone.

These screen protectors work pretty well for me and will fit the iPhone 3G and 3GS. If you look at them at an angle, there is a little bit of a "rainbow" effect... the way it's refracting light. I doubt most people would even notice it. Like all screen protectors, these are a bit hard to put on without getting bubbles and dust under the screen. I liked that there were two tabs on these that make them a bit easier to properly line up and stick onto the iPhone Screen. The included wipes and squeegee …

This iphone cover is a good deal for the price. However, it's not particularly better than the other ones. In fact, it's a bit harder to put on the iphone. So it's a tradeoff - a reasonable one, but nonetheless worth considering.

I have been using mobile pocket devices for almost a decade (Palm Pilot, iPod touch, iPhone), and most of them have screens that scratch relatively easily, hence the need for a protective screen. Screens, however, tend to be exceedingly hard to apply, and this one from Amazon is no exception. However, Amazon has gone the farthest as far as helping users apply the screen to their device with a few small improvements. The most significant of those are the two "masks" that are attached to the back …
