Hi all !

I just bought THIS screen protector and just loving it.

I was worried about the fitting to the screen but the precision laser cut was very accurate, fits exactly to the screen.

I applied it myself for the first time, it is magnetic(does not leave adhesive residue) so you can always remove apply it correctly. The matte finish is just excellent

It is for Indian users but the seller said they import these from abroad so the same brand can be found on international sites too.

1) can anybody show a side-to-side comparison of matte and clear protectors applied?

2) are the aftermarket protectors better than the sony stock protector?

Hi guys, just got my ZR and I'm loving it but it's quite the fingerprint magnet. Is there a screen protector that can help. I have set my eyes on this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vikuiti-AD...item51b125bc05 but I don't know if it's any good. Any suggestions?

I buy a 3pack of matte protection @ 3.5 and it's just what i need!

But i cant remember the seller... Go for the cheaper (3pack is good if ou miss something during the assembly)

Thank you, for your suggestion I got 3 matte and 6 clear screen protectors I will see how it goes and which I like best. Has anyone removed the pre-installed protector from their device. I'm concerned that I'll remove the SONY logo if I get rid of it (I hear that happened on xperia Z units). Is there any danger in removing it and should I remove it at all or just place the new one on top of it?

Place the new one on top. Doesn't dampen sensitivity too much.

Thumbs up matte
At first didn't like my matte screen protector...

Pros
feels nicer!
no filthy finger prints!
minimal light reflections..
if you use dim backlight it really helps..
you can re apply it.
no air bubbles at all!

Cons
unable to use it as a mirror when screen off.
colours and images on the screen are not as sharp,
slight glow on whites.


But now i wouldn't go back!

I'm still waiting for my screen protector and today I noticed a tiny scratch on the screen. It's not that visible but is there a way to fix that. Will the screen protector cover it or I'm stuck with a scratched SONY?

It should not be the screen itself. Sony is known to apply screen protectors on each phone in-manufacture. It's not visible but if you insist you can remove it. It's even possible that the sony logo is simply printed on it, like the Xperia V.
