First of all, the package containing the sponge broke open in shipping and leaked everywhere. But I added some water as the directions say and proceeded with the install.
My second problem was with installation. It seemed no matter how many times I wet my fingers they would either leave a fingerprint or my fingers would stick to the shield. Centering each piece a pain. Maybe I didn't wet it enough? Not sure. But I had to peel it off and start over several times on certain pieces. The corners were the hardest, and even with the "palming" method, It still bubbles out a bit on the edges.
This next part is not so much a complaint I guess. I was drunk in Vegas at a Rugby tournament, and I put my N1 in the same pocket as my wallet which has a metal money clip on it. Needless to say the money clip scratched the phone on the face, but the Zagg Shield DID do its job here. It protected the phone from what otherwise would be a deep scratch. However, there is now a slight bubble where the impact happened. How do I get that bubble out? Can I peel off and re-apply?
In any case, I do manual labor and I think I want something more likely to protect the N1 in case of a drop. Possibly a silicon case? any of you guys have any ideas? Price is not really on object. I have no problem paying $20-$30 for a good case.
Thanks in advance for your help.
