Put one of my extra iSmooth sp's back on and I'm happy for now. Just curious about the Clarivue.
I'm pretty pleased with mine - I didn't realize they included a sealed wet-wipe (supposedly anti-static and anti-dust formulated), so I ended up with dust particles after I wiped the bare surface down with a Microfiber cloth and rubbing alcohol. Since I figured I had nothing to lose - as I had an obscene number of dust particles under the glass, I decided to pry it out again and wash it using liquid hand soap and water.
Basically I ended up applying it like a Zagg protector using 99% Alcohol in a spray bottle as a liquid base to a) reduce dust particles and prevent water spots, b) shift the Clairvue into position. I ended up with a pretty decent job - there is only one tiny dust particle - small enough that it isn't visible unless you pull up a white background. There is no air bubble surrounding it and it only showed up a week after the initial application.
My friends who also purchased the same protector applied it successfully without the issues - as they were forewarned by me about the wipe, so I guess the wipe really does help in the installation.
They also included 4 plastic buttons for the home button - to make it easier to press the button down - it came in White, Black, Blue and Grey. The issue with these buttons is that they seem like they're for the S3 and not the Note. It still works but its definitely not the proper shape of the Note II button.
be a small loss of sensitivity (maybe 1%?) - but I'm not 100% certain as really hard to tell if its the app or the phone. S-Pen functions fine. The glass is really, really smooth compared to plastic ones - well worth the extra cost. Also resists oils very well - requires fewer wipe downs compared to the plastic ones.
I would definitely buy again - and I'm only including what I went through to apply it since I failed to install it correctly - yet it is recoverable and not all is lost. The adhesive layer is strong enough for some washing. I probably wouldn't pry it out now though as the adhesive has probably cured a little bit. I don't believe it's supposed to be reusable.
