I've used several different screen protectors for my one x including body shield and invisishield and the best one ive used so far is the screen protector that otterbox included with their commuter case.
I was trying to find a way to buy more of them but they don't sell them online.
However, their one year warranty includes the screen protector.
I just called otterbox and they are sending me a new screen protector for free, and it doesn't use/void your warranty.

I found invisishields a pain to apply, and have a rubbery feel that I hate.

The body shield was easy to apply (static cling) but also has a rubbery feel (not as much as invisishield).

Thanks for the tip chief. Though I've never had to contact Otterbox directly, they make quality stuff and after hearing what I have in regards to their customer service, this doesn't surprise me. Great company.

I will say though that when I decided to take my since-day-one Defender case off (because I mistreat my sh*t enough to actually justify that), I went ahead and dropped $40 on full body Zagg stuff installed at a kiosk. If it weren't for the rubbery texture on the InvisibleShields, I'd have DEFINITELY dropped mine enough to make me put the Defender back on.

They shipped the new screen protector express, for free.
I got it within 2 days of calling them.

A+++

I couldn't manage to apply mine without some dust/bubbles.. I may have to try and get a replacement one.

Re: FYI : Otterbox screen protectors.
Just sticking with the zagg shield and commuter. See no reason to upgrade to a bulky defender.

I'm using the commuter, it comes with a screen protector that I consider better than zaggs.

Re: FYI : Otterbox screen protectors.
I can strongly agree with op. The screen protector they include is the only one ive actually left on any phone.

Use scotch tape two pieces use one on the front to lift the corner(so there aren't any bends in the protector) use the other to dab underneath the protector to remove dust particle and good as new.
