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

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

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

I guess that is almost the same, only difference your value probably includes tax as well.

Thank for the heads up on the thread, after reading I feel less appealed to Crystalusion, best keep it simple with screen protectors.

naked...gorilla glass 2.

I will put a case on, but I'm not concerned about the glass. Having owned other gorilla glass products I've never had a scratch..

Crystalusion sounds interesting, but I'll say it again that we need that self-healing stuff. Anyone have any idea about if/when we might see self-healing coatings?

Here's some questions I emailed to Crystalusion and the responses I got:

Quote:

Q: My main concerns are how the liquid glass might affect the grip-ability of the Nexus 10 backing with it being rubber.
A: Even though it can be applied on the rubber and would not damage it in anyway. Crystalusion specifically has been designed to treat hard surfaces and therefore in your case would be better suited to protecting your screen. I say your case since it can be applied to the back of devices like the iphone etc...

Q: Another concern is how the liquid glass might affect speaker grills and the very tiny gaps between where the screen and sides meet, and for the buttons (volume and power). Ports are also a slight concern, and the bottom of the Nexus 10 also has an area for POGO pins.
A: We have solved this problem with our application method. Crystalusion comes in a pre-coated micro fibre cloth to specifically avoid the problem you are talking about. Even though the liquid itself wouldn't damage the inside parts of your device.

Q: Would the liquid glass prevent contact on the POGO pin area?
A: No this would not happen.

We have several customers who have applied Crystalusion to their tablets however I am not sure whether these have been Nexus 10s... Also just to let you know as a raw chemical Liquid Glass ranks higher in strength than guerilla glass does, and with Crystalusion specifically the main benefits being it is anti-bacterial as well as being an award winning nano-technology in addition to other features such as anti-abrasion.

My vote is nay. Get a good case. The screen is gorilla glass and pretty tough. If the case does not protect the screen, I doubt a screen protector will

That is pretty interesting. Check my previous link for a similar product which guarantees the same but for 6 months while crystal does for 1 year.

How stupid can one be to not cut away the top right corner flap and use the original protector without hindering the experience?

Although economical, the plastic screen that comes with the nexus 10 probably won't protect against scratches. But it could work if you're careful
