Do you guys have any suggestions on which screen protector does the best of keeping the screen clear of fingerprints? I feel like I'm constantly wiping my screen protector off. I am using the screen protectors from vzw.

I'm also on the same boat...using a Zagg Ultrashield right now. Although I like the feel of it, its a huge fingerprint magnet. Just looked into an RND anti glare and fingerprint set off Amazon, hopefully it will be better.

I figured I wasn't the only one lol. It feels like every time I take it out of my pocket I'm wiping the screen off.

Day Deal has a screen protector for the DNA, described as Anti Glare, which is great at minimizing finger prints and smudges.

It hides most fingerprints, but if you do get any fingerprints or smudges, a quick wipe on your pants or tee-shirt cleans it right up.

Also, the screen looks very good when the device is turned on.

On the negative side, it IS noticable on your screen, when the screen is turned off.

Also, it doesn't go right up to the edges, but it does cover the touch buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Works well with most covers.

Well, Amazon is fast that's for sure. Ordered the screen protector yesterday with free 2-day and it showed up today. It isn't edge-to-edge, which is a bit disappointing as you have to be extremely precise in aligning it with the screen itself. At least it covers the buttons. A plus about not being edge-to-edge is that there's no interference with my case, so I won't have to worry about bubbling up. Guess this will do until I find a better matte set...

Gosh that was quick! It sounds like it is exactly the same dimensions as the stock ones from vzw. On the sides it just barely covers the screen. But what do you think about it so far? Keeping the fingerprints off good?

Yep, sounds right, this one barely covers the edges of the screen.

I think it's much better than the Zagg I was using in terms of functionality. Keeps fingerprints off relatively well, still get some smears but they come off so much easier than with the Zagg. Plus it feels so much cleaner when swiping...what I was using before made my thumbs feel like they were glued to the screen when I swiped. The only thing I wished is that it was edge-to-edge, but then again, that would probably cause issues with a case.
