So I'm just wondering how is everyone using their tablets.

Screen protector or no or are you using an alternative method like crystalusion.

Pros of a naked screen:
  • Better screen display quality.
  • the true naked feel

Cons of no screen protector:
  • risk of scratches
  • constantly wiping fingerprints.

what is the community doing now, let's collect few response and try to put them in one place.

I put the SGP screen protector on and I like it. I don't notice a drop in quality at all as it's not a matte protector. With that said fingerprints are just as bad as the naked screen.

Naked But Crystalusion does sound very interesting...

Edit: It sounds really interesting actually I almost want to buy it and just put it all over my entire Nexus 10, but would it affect the grip-ability of the back too much?

to be honest, i can't go on with an unprotected device, like yourself i just read about this crystalusion for the first time ever and it does sound pretty amazing, could anybody who's used this liquid glass please care to share their input about it please?

It seems to be about $21 to order it ($18 off ebay); seems like a 1-pack-1-device kind of thing though... (I have quite a few things I'd love to use it on, but can't really spend around $20 per device though)

I emailed the manufacturer of Crystalusion about my concern with the rubber back grip; hopefully they respond with something positive though

I've tried protectors before and they all seem to stink. They feel like rubber or take scratches poorly and dirt builds up around their edges.

My Galaxy S3 and my Asus TF201 never got a scratch. My TF201 did shatter but no screen protector was going to stop that.

Try their website, 6.99 + shipping
http://www.crystalusion.com/order.html
although I'm guessing shipping may be higher for us not in the UK.

I think it's about 12 for the product with shipping.

$21.45 USD is what it shows for me.

I've never been a fan of Ghost Armor - they've always been super rubbery in texture which is a huge turn off.

I've used SGP products before and heard good things about their screen protectors but they seem rather pricey.

to you both, here is this thread I found on xda about the same, maybe you'll get an idea of what people have felt after using it. This is apparently the US equivalent.

EDIT: I found it on sale at ncix Canada for about $15

one use per pack is indeed a bummer but then again so are all screen protectors.
