For the Droid Razr.


I'm wondering which one has the

1) Best Texture
2) Better overall coverage


Pictures would be appreciated... I'm trying to find the one that covers all areas of the phone the most.

Also, is the bezel of the phone plastic or aluminum?

Thanks

I have had a few screen protectors for the razr but none seem to go to the edge of the screen (up to the plastic bezel)

Im currently using a stenheil protector and it is as if it isn't there.

I tend to lean towards the "wet install" films as well. Especially on the Razr which has a slight bevel on the edge of the screen. This bevel makes the "static" films lift a bit.

Zagg
Has a orange peel texture which is noticeable at angles but when looking straight at the screen it looks perfect. I believe the texture is to help smudges and finger prints. Barely enough solution is included after you wet your hands as instructed. Crappy smoothing tool is too hard.

Skintomi
Texture is very smooth but you have to be very careful during install or you will be left with "squiggles". Its a weird effect but can be eliminated or reduced by installing the film in a steamy bathroom. Nearly as smooth as the bare screen but also attracts smudges and finger prints easily. Good smoothing tool.

ArmorShield
Very similar to Skintomi but made in USA of 3M Film. A little easier to install than the Skintomi and more than ample solution included. Decent/Good smoothing tool.

Couple of hints when installing any "wet" film:

** Wash hands completely to remove dirt from fingers.
** Thoroughly wet hands with solution after washing
** Install in a steamy environment (like a bathroom)
** Once you lay the film, it will slide easily if you don't apply pressure.

I bought extreme guardz for my Razr Maxx and it actually covers the entire screen Corner to corner. The texture is great. It was a wet install and cost $1.50 off of ebay.

I had Zagg and Stealth Guard before and I currently have the extreme guard on my Nexus S and there is no comparison. The Extreme Guard are the best by far. Zagg is too rubbery and actually attracts smudges and fingerprints. Stealth Guard was ok, but I found they were not cut to the exact shape that was required. The extreme guard fit perfectly, add some non-slip texture, but are barely noticeable on the screen. And given the price they can be purchased for on eBay you really cant go wrong. I have a RAZR coming in the mail and I immediately purchased two full-body shields from Extreme Guard off eBay. Two of them including shipping was like $12 to Canada.

I'm using the Clear Ultra Crystal Steinheil screen protecter and it's AWESOME. It's thin, but durable. It doesn't have that rubbery feel and you can't even tell that I have a screen protector on.

Im using Steinheil Clear Ultra Crystal as well. It is the best screen protector I have ever used. Very smooth, and clear and tough. I have had mine on for 3 months, and it is still pristine.
