I have tried Zagg HD, Skinomi, and Xtremeguard, all wet applications, and have found Xtremeguard is the best. They apply very easily and truly self heal. I have purposely gouged it and saw it return to normal right before my eyes. It seemed a little rubbery at first, but after a few days of use, it feels more like glass. They do not come with a proximity sensor cut out, but my phone has never had an issue with that. I would imagine one can be cut out with a whole puncher, though, prior to application if needed. Now, these are VERY inexpensive especially if you Google search for coupons. I ended up paying about a dollar with free shipping. Their packaging is nothing but a piece of cardboard in an envelope and you need to make your own solution, but instructions are provided. I believe this must be how they keep their cost low. Customer support is awesome and they sent me out a whole new free shipment when I received one damaged. I installed one on my Evo View as well and the stylus works perfectly.

Try them! They are much better than Zagg, no orange peal at all, and self healing! Search "xtremeguard coupons" and you will likely find 75% off. I ordered from their website.

Let me know what you think. Put some tape over the earpiece when you install.
