Re: [REVIEWS] Screen Protectors
The good reviews will be reinstated here. They have just been moved internally. Hopefully they will be back up today.

Cellet Screen Guard
I have been using the Cellet Screen Guard for about a week now, a brand I haven't seen anything about here before. I picked it up because it was the only one they carried at Fry's for the Note 2. It is the rigid film type. It went on very easily (I am usually no good at installing these), with no bubbles or any other problem. The packaging says "scratch resistance" and so far that has proven to be true. It is very clear, hard and smooth, and the spen does not leave any marks on it. The only problem is that it does smudge and pick up fingerprints easily, but they wipe right off with a microfiber cloth.

Btw, I currently have a Just Like Glass on mine, but there was a dent or glob of glue or something in it (it's not a dust speck as it's not the right shape for that) right in the middle of the screen. I applied the JLG about 6 weeks ago and to be honest, that dent (and to a lesser extent, the rainbowing) have been annoying me ever since.

Just bought a pack of iSmooths this morning which I hope will be do the job. Under 10 delivered from the states to the UK. Not a bad deal for 3 protectors

Awww... thanks! I just really hoped my reviews helped someone choose what they wanted, even if it was something that I wasn't fond of.

I spoke to the mods and they are hoping to carry over the good reviews, so hopefully they will carry my reviews over and bring them to this thread.

I didnt save any of my review text from before (Lesson Learned) so I am really hoping the mods can bring my posts/threads back. I would at least like to copy them down somewhere else.

Ive changed the format of my reviews and should have a few more for this thread, along with 2 bumper and 2 case reviews.

Re: [REVIEWS] Screen Protectors
I just got the iSmooth in the mail today after the nightmare known as JLG.

All I can say is Dayyyyyummmm!

It had everything I was looking for..
-great price
-swag included (excellent silk screen wipe)
-3 protectors!
-excellent cuts
-great adhesion
-ismooth is smooth... Both for fingers and Spen
-crystal clear
-easy install with directions with an offer for another free one with an Amazon review
-lifetime warranty, even if you mess up the install yourself

The install was so easy, so perfect, I felt like I was cheating

Not 1 bubble, or mark, or dust, or rainbow steaks (that will "dissappear" in 3-5 days like some companies claim... But 1/2 the time do not)

Not sure else what to say. Just an overall excellent experience.

+1 to iSmooth

Where did you order from to get it delivered to the UK? Amazon.com won't deliver to my UK address from iSmooth

Thumbs up BoxWave Clear Touch Anti glare screen protector
I just got my BoxWave Clear Touch Anti glare screen protector and installed it. Note I have never installed a screen protector before but I have read the horror stories.

I decided to install one on my Note 2 because I wanted it to change the feel of writing on glass to make it more like paper.

My wife has installed several screen protectors and some were ok and some were murder to install. The BoxWave Clear Touch Anti glare screen protector was so easy to install and quite forgiving.

I cleaned the phone screen with my clear screen wipes I use for my laptop drying it with a micro fiber cloth. Then wiped it with the cloth they provided, but did not use their cleaning wipes (saved them for later). I started and had trouble getting it to stay aligned as I removed the backing (65 with shaking hands) so after getting about and inch and a half from the corner I took it off. Then got some tape and taped it in place in 2 spots. Then started removing the backing again. Real smooth.

When done I saw I had a couple pieces of dust under the screen protector so I tried to lift it with some tape. No way it was really stuck and the tape would just come off. So I tried with my fingernail and the corner came up. I just grabbed it with my thumb and finger (worried about contaminating the back) used some tape wrapped around my finger, to remove the dust. Put the corner back down used the cardboard they provided wrapped in the cloth they provided to push out the air bubbles and done.

It's not truly straight and one edge is too far to the side and may not stick well due to curve of the glass but so far it looks good and really helps with the feel of the pen. Quite pleased and because of the deal from slickdeals I have 2 more and only spent $3.00. Note it does not change the colors nor does it have any color bands at angles. I does reduce the brightness a tiny and I mean tiny bit.

+more for iSmooth. As much as I dig their original screen protector currently being shipped from Amazon:



They are sampling a new ultra-clear anti-fingerprint one which should start shipping officially once the stock of "green" ones run out. I would like to point out the new "clear" one is:
- thicker (on par with 3H thickness of Spigen and MobC) and super strong
- ultra-clear, no color distortion, no tint
- no rainbow effect (even under fluorescent lights)
- no issues using s-pen even applying extra pressure
- an improved cut, especially around home button
- super smooth, feels like glass
- covers visible part of the screen, while living enough edge margin for any case lip

I'm attaching a few edge shots of the new protector. Keep in mind its thickness relative to the phone. The edges are rounded and very smooth. After testing half a dozen of other cheaper and brand new screen protectors, this one is a keeper for me!
