It's definitely not just visible with the phone off.

What I've found is its visibility is very dependent on the type of lighting. It's not visible with no external lighting and it's either not visible or only barely visible with natural or tungsten lighting. However, under fluorescent lighting (both CFL and traditional office fluorescent tubes) it's very noticeable. Even under mixed lighting it can be very visible if fluorescent is part of the mix. At my office I get a fair bit of natural light from the window but it's mixed with fluorescent light from the ceiling and the banding patterns are visible to the point of distraction. Under CFL lighting at home at night they practically obscure the display.
You, sir, nailed this on the head. I could not have explained it any better. It is really dependent on what light is reflecting off of it. At night or at home with no fluorescent lighting, it is barely visible at all. At the office, I almost can't see the screen. I have not tried this out in the sun. But yeah, it is really unacceptable that a UV coating will cause rainbow banding. It doesn't make sense. I've seen UV coatings on many things, and I don't see bandings on them. I wonder if I can ask for my money back.

Two week Review

So after two weeks most of the bubbles have finally come out. My nexus 7 has a few at the top that I think ill never go away. My iphone 4s has all of them gone. Although a small round concentrated area is discoloured, this only started after a few days. Scott sent me free replacements which I am happy with. On both protectors the edges have lifted some. In tight jeans I believe this could eventually be a problem. Clarity ( besides that one spot) is perfect. Smoothness is perfect. Although I am noticing many little microscratches all over the screen I did not get with other protectors. I have two nasty scratches on the bottom of the cover on my iphone. The scratch ability is a little worse than the Zagg HD. It scratches a tad easier. All in all, still satisfied.

Thanks for the review.

And it will scratch (not deeply) more than ZAGG because it's a hard protector rather than a soft.

It's a trade off, Zagg is more scratch resistant, and JLG feels and looks more like glass. Two completely different kinds of protectors.

I wish I could find a way to do it all..

Hi Scott,

I want to order 3 JLG for my SGS3s and one for my Nexus 4 (F+B) from your website. Will I get the last cut ?

I read on the Nexus 4 forum that only the front SP for the N4 is JLG and the back is inferior plain SP, Is that true ?

I want the same shatterproof protection for my N4 back as my front SP (I going to use it with LG's bumper).

Thanks

Hi, I received a shipping notice from DBA on January 30. However I still have not received my order. I sent an email to support@dbacases.com but I haven't heard back yet. I want to know if my protector has in fact been shipped out.

Two questions for scott. Whats your plans for the Canadian Market? Have you reached out to retail in Canada. Futureshop and Best Buy in Canada apply SO many Zagg protectors for people. Have you asked them about having your screen protectors in their stores and having them install them. Also, do you plan to offer a warranty for your protectors for scratches where you pay like $6.00 and get a new one shipped?

haha touche. Good points for sure. Having two in a pack for a few dollars more is a great idea. I hope a canadian retailer gets them soon, be nice to have quicker shipping. ( not at all your fault)

Hi all,

I received the SPs a few days ago and installed it on two of my S3s, I notice that the cut doesn't fit like my previous SPs and the edges will not stick (even after I did as instructed in the manual and videos) the most annoying thing is that the black cloth left black particles under the edges, and from a close look it looks bad.

I think that I didn't get the latest cut and I'm overall very disappointed. I'll try to contact Scott or customer service and see how it goes...

Here some photos -
