    Nice thread. If you keep the OP up to date this will be a great resource for people in the market for a screen protector.

    You've got sticky.

    I got the Xtreme Guards, and I just put on my Nexus, and it's making the screen almost unresponsive to the touch is this normal at first?
    hmm maybe it is the brand you have. I dont seem to have that problem with my screen protector. Has anyone else ever ran into this dilema?

    BodyGuardz rule. XO dent to easy, Zagg is to sticky and generally sucks. You can order a replacement if/when needed for a fraction of the price.

    I ended up ripping that thing off because it was making my screen unusable for the most part. I don't know what I did wrong, maybe I used too much water on the back of it.

    All these "wet application" / "military grade" type of screen protectors appears to be pretty much the same thing. I have used Zagg and BestSkinsEver products before, and looks like ArmorSuit, XO, XtremeGrard etc. are basically the same thing.

    Is there REALLY any difference between them (except Zagg being the MOST expensive!!) ?

    Don't get me wrong ... I do very much like these types of protectors, and have been using them for 5+ years now. Just wondering if there is really any difference between the various brands.

    The difference as you have probably read is the look and feel. The wet application works best to keep it from coming off. But most of these brands have an orange peel look, yellowing after time...etc. Only one I've had and probably won't ever change that doesn't have these issues is XO skins. And they always offer specials and discounts. Every new device I've gone to get a skin for there was at a minimum 20% off.

    Don't use a screen protector and stop buying unnecesarry cases, capacitive stylus pens, bluetoothe mice, keyboards, etc., and use the money instead to get a second mobile tablet, a mobile hotspot, better or second phone, etc.

    Got the Zagg Invisible Shield today, came packed in a tube, so I put something heavy on it to flatten it out.
    Installation went as I expected, squeegeed out the biggest bubbles without any problems.
    Now it's just a matter of waiting until the tiny ones fade away. The screen looks smudged but I'm confident, it'll be OK.
    I'll post some pics in the next few days.

    Oh oh, screen responsiveness is very sluggish with Invisible Shield.
    I'm tapping directly and getting no response.
    My HP Touchpad with an IS is much more responsive to swiping.
    I hope this improves over time but if not, it's coming off and Zagg is refunding my money.

    OK, it's getting better, much more responsive. Flicking is easier. Might be a keeper yet.

    The screen protector is necessary.

    got an XO. application was easy if you follow the directions. Bubbles and streaks do disappear within 30hrs. I'm quite pleased with the responsiveness of my screen after installation.

    thumbs up to XO.

    yeah id rather use a skin protector than a case, a case seems too bulky to mewhere as a skin protector is enough to protect it but not too much extra size
    Only one I've had and probably won't ever change that doesn't have these issues is XO skins.
    yeah that is who i use as well, its the only one i have tried so far but i will stick with them. If its not broken then why try to fix it right?

    I ordered a Wrapsol Ultra screen protector on Tuesday and it was here yesterday so that was good. It was originally $25, but I used a coupon code and got it for $25 with shipping. Application was pretty easy and I didn't have any problems (besides a few pieces of fuzz, so illusive) there were quite a few bubbles when I installed it, but they advertised that they would go away in about 24 hours ad most of them have. The only qualm I have with the screen protector is that the right half of it has that pebble look to it. The only thing I can compare it to is the back of the pebble blue SIII (sort of lines on it). I'm confused because the left half looks great, like the glass itself. I'm still trying to decide if I can live with it. On the other hand, it doesn't have as much of a tacky feel like the invisible shields I've had in the past which is nice.

    Surprised no one is going to try out Ghost Armor. I read some good things about them (never tried them yet) so I went ahead and picked two up (one for me and one for my Mom's N7) with 20% off discount, the price wasn't bad.

    I'll let you guys know how I feel about it next week.

    what do you mean different brand? You mean a different brand completely or are there different brands of xtremeguard? I only saw one on their site and went with that one. Hope I don't get the unresponsive issue someone else had, I'll be sure to lightly spray with water & hope to avoid that
