I've always used Brando - but recently i got SafeScreen which is half the price - and i haven't noticed any differences between them. Never tried SGP though. For Xperia Z i'll probably use the one that Sony bundled with the phone - or whichever brand releases one for both front and back of the phone.

I was thinking this too - the Xperia Z, like other Xperias, ships with a pre-fitted screen protector. I'd like one for the back too though, to keep it looking pristine.

It has this pre-fitted protector on both front and back. There's additional screen protector bundled in the box so you can apply it on the screen to keep it double-protected, from shattering and scratches.

The one applied by Sony is supposed to protect your device from shattering if you happen to break the display. It holds pieces of broken glass togethes. But it is a plastic screen protector - so it will get scratched after a while, so you can either apply a second more scratch-resistant one ( recommended by Sony as it gives you both type of protection ) on top of it - or use the phone as is, and just remove the pre-fitted one should it get scratched badly and replace it with a new one.

I didn't know the phone came bundled with a screen protector, i've just ordered myself a cheapo hybrid hardcase from the Bay, comes with a screen protector as well, so i should be well covered in any eventuality.

I still have a pack of Crystalusion Liquid Glass protector that i haven't had the bottle to try out on my One X yet.

It would be very nice if Sony could sell only its original screen shields to replace the scratched one

Default Re: Screen protectors

Are there waterproof screen protectors? Quite apprehensive of getting one and ending up removing it due to washing the Z, etc

Default Back protection?

Does the XZ come with anything on the back? If not, then does anyone know where I could get a rear protector, not a case or anything as I'll be using the dock, and can't find anything on Amazon.
Thanks in advance
