Hey everyone, I couldn't figure out whether this should be in QnA or Accessories, but I figured it should be here.

Anyway, is there any known brands that do screen protectors, but at a reasonable price.

I know about ZiggZagg etc, but spending 15 on a screen protector to me is ludacrus, they come off/start peeling after not so long, so I couldn't imagine paying that for 1!.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated !!!

Umm... the One X has gorilla glass? You don't need a screen cover. That's like trying to wear a sock over your shoe to protect it from the ground....

Actually i just ordered the dynaflo hard shield, but i've search for other screen protectors in case it won't be as good as i thought.
I came across skinomi screen protector wich look pretty great and covers almost the entire screen...it cost around 12$ (i dunno what's your budget but i think its pretty cheap..) here's a video about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otwcex1_uJg

hope it helps...

I have learnt the hard way that gorilla glass can not be trusted any more...
That's a shame as it was perfect on my Desire Z...
Hox screen is filled with micro starches out of nowhere....

I would stay clear of SGP ultra oleophobic...
Its nearly impossible to install correctly, picks up dirt quite easily and the rainbow effect is all over the place...
The only things i like it that it doesn't go round the edges so it wont peel off and the feel of the protector is almost identical to the HOX glass...
For the price i paid not very satisfied since i ruined the 1st one upon installation!

I feel exactly the same as you. I've been looking for a decent screen protector since I got my One X. Unfortunately I can't advise you on any good ones as I haven't found one yet, but I can tell you don't bother with the official HTC one. I paid something like 8 (if I remember rightly) thinking it's the official one so it should be good but it didn't even fit the phone due to the curved edges. The edges were raise all around it which looked awful.

I'd be interested if anyone does recommend a decent one for a reasonable price.

And for the record, gorilla glass does scratch. It's not things like sharp objects that are the problem but minute grains of dust and sand rubbing against it. It scratches very easily under certain circumstances, such as in a gritty pocket or a pocket with sand in it.
