Has anybody tried one on the Note yet? I had one on an old iPhone 3g, and my only complaint was that the screen wasn't bright enough to shine through properly. The screen on the Note is way brighter, so I'm thinking about giving it another go. Has anybody seen any in person yet on a Note?

Before I even submitted, I already ordered a three pack of cheap ones. Whoops. If it's obviously a quality problem (wavy), I'll buy nicer ones. If it's still too dark for me, I'll just pitch them.

They're here, and on. Install was on par with the typical screen film. That means I suck at it.

These first few were taken in my kitchen just after putting the film on, late afternoon facing east.

These were taken slightly later, but in a completely internal room to the house with flourescent lights behind me, and set on my MBP.

MBP screen off:

MBP Screen in screensaver mode:

And finally, I had to go manual adjustment to get it to focus on the reflection of the MBP screensaver:

I have always wanted to see how those screen protectors looked on a device. It looks like it works well and doesn't diminish the view. How does it handle smudges? Thanks for taking the time to post.

Yeah, man. My only "real world" experience with it so far is low light at a bar/after hours. It was totally fine all night. In fact, in low light, I had a hard time telling it was reflective at all.

Thumbs up
Got a link to those? So far I've just been using my note in a case w / lip to protect the screen in case of a drop, and I don't carry it in my pocket with key's facing the screen anyway. I like the mirrored look.

I got these ones, so I have two more (should I decide that the two bubbles I made are unacceptable, or for when I break this phone and get a replacement)

Unhappy
I don't know if you tried to link where I could purchase them, but i have looked on amazon and eBay and have yet to find them for the note. I have found them for the iPhone and every other phone made but not the note, GRR! LOL. Just as I posted this, I found these.. They the same as yours?

I tried one when i had my iphone back then. I removed it after a few minutes. In my opinion they are ugly and they make the phone look cheap. Just my 2 cents
