It's a wet install screen protector and applies exactly like the zagg invisible shield (very good reviews but very expensive), xtremeguardz (was looking at this option before ordering gadgetshieldz), skinomi etc. Now, the wet install screen protectors tend to remain scratch free and clear over a period of time compared to their dry counterparts. Also they cover even the curved areas of a phone. Among the options that I looked at, gadgetshieldz seemed the best bet in terms of coverage, price and shipping. Xtremeguardz was another option that I was looking at but saw a few mixed reviews that complained about 'orange peel' effect and rubbery kind of feeling. So gave it a miss. Also, with gadgetshieldz shipping from within India I was able to get the protectors within 2 days of ordering whereas the other options would have taken at least 15-20 days to arrive from outside India.
I ordered gadgetshieldz for the nexus 4 through their site www.gadgetshieldz.in although they have one separate online store for their International customers www.gadgetshieldz.com. Apparently I was redirected to their local site when I tried to acess their international site. I chose to order the Maximum protection version (screen and body to put in simple words).

The skins include protection for the front, back and sides although I didn't bother to apply them on the sides due to the rubber finishing. The front screen protector looked a little different and thinner than the back. I don't know the reason but I am not complaining since the results were great. There were quite a number of bubbles after the installation on the front and it did give me a scare but the next morning, most of them were gone. The back was almost clear within 3-4 hours of installation. The curved edges went on perfectly and in fact were almost invisible. I tried to capture them in some of the pics.
The screen protector looks fabulous on both the screen and the back. The clarity is awesome and does not compromise even a bit on the superb HD display of the Nexus 4. Look at the pics with Angie staring at me. Hehe. Looks absolutely stunning. The touch feeling is also very smooth and almost feels like glass which I think is the best feature of this shield.
Mind you, there is nothing in the package, no spray, no squeezing card, no lint free cloth, just the high quality shields. I was really surprised with the high quality of the shields considering the price I had paid. I don't know how much better the other brands can be with this one being almost perfect. In fact, I have already ordered another one for my Nexus 10 which was on the stock screen protector all these days. Really aussum quality.
I would highly recommend this shield for any one looking to protect their Nexus 4, screen or back. Checkout the pics below.
Has a perfect cutout for the proximity sensor and the front cam. All the cuts are precise.
Nexus logo and the patterns on the glass..Loving it since I got the phone..
The colors look as rich as they are meant to be on the brilliant N4 display.
