I've bought the SGP Ultra Oleophobic and returned it. I didn't like the fit on the screen. Then I bought the Best Skins Ever.

I installed the SGP flex quite easily.

Wet isn't as risky as people make it out to be.

I haven't bought a screen protector yet, but I'm planning to when I pick up my Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus (YAY!!!!). I want to understand the types of screen protectors out there because I usually kind of get whatever is out there.

I'm assuming wet applications will generally give you that orange peel effect. These usually offer better protection and coverage, but clarity of the display and feel of it???

What's the downside of a "dry" application of a screen protector?

I was a little surprise to see all the others,
but I added a few things that maybe people can help to rate each individual categories or something like that

i used the one that came with my diztronics tpu case. it is actually pretty good and only leaves about a mm all the way around which is acceptable. too many dry screen protectors go edge to edge and it makes installation more challenging. i came away with no dust and centered perfect with it. i ordered a skinomi but i don't know if i'm going to put it on. wet application bothers me a little bit. other than that, i usually use el cheapos from hong kong and they have always worked great on my other phones.
how can you start if you forget to begin?
