    Default Nexus 7: Screen Protectors?

    Anybody know where I can get a good screen protector? I usually use SGP but I don't see mention of a protector for the new N7 on their site.

    Check on Amazon. They had the ASUS travel case and ASUS screen protectors for it.

    A good question is did the dimensions change? (I am legitimately asking because I haven't kept up with knowledge of the new Nexus other than it is out) If not, then would the one for the first edition be ok to use?

    The dimensions have changed with the new Nexus 7, so you will not be able to use the screen protectors from the first gen Nexus 7

    The dimensions of the screen itself did not change, but the dimensions of the bezel area changed quite a bit.

    I hope we do not have to wait very long......SPG is the only one I will use. I had one on my N7 first gen since day one and it was awesome. I liked the feel of it over the bare glass.

    On my new N7 2013.....without any screen saver on it.....my finger slides too easy like the glass has silicone on it. I had a hard time moving icons around at first.

    The SPG crystal clear is the one i used.....could not even tell there was anything on the glass besides its feel. It goes on dry and quickly, no bubbles with applying it. Can't say enough about them!

    I like sgp spigen. What I really prefer is clarivue. I get it on all my devices. Would anyone happen to have a clarivue coupon code? Thanks

    That looks good, but it's only one protector, right? I rarely get a perfect install the first time, so I vastly prefer 3-packs, easier on my nerves, since any bit of dust or a bubble would drive me nuts.

    That said, how necessary is a screen protector on the new Nexus? Mine will be in a case, and I'm generally easy on my devices. I didn't get one for the Nook and have been fine so far, but the Nexus 7 at a hundred dollars more worries me some. It will also see every day carry use.

    Please post on how you like the iLLumiSheild when it comes, this is one that looked good to me based on reviews of their phone screen protectors! Thanks!

    So far I like the iLLumiShield. The cutouts align pretty well. There's a third cutout for the notification light which I think is weird, but it had that same cutout on the Skinomi screen protector I ordered so I guess it's standard. Fills the screen up and my fingers can move across it with ease. It's done fairly well against fingerprints and doesn't cause any decrease in picture quality. I like that it came in a three-pack as well. The first I tried to apply got too much dirt/dust on the adhesive side and it was driving me nuts. Even if you do get some specks left in there, the anti-bubble properties of the protector do well to remove any bubbling that might happen due to it. For the price, I think it's a good buy.

    Using the ASUS one here, dry application, comes with glossy and matte, I am using the glossy, no better no worse than stock screen with no saver. More expensive than the SPIGEN though. If the ASUS one does not last well will try the SPIGEN. Have always used ZAGG in the past but I really like the dry application on the ASUS and SPIGEN.

    bill thanks for that info......don't know why i did not check Amazon. $9 less is a big difference for sure. I sent them a message and hope they send me a PP credit or allow me to cancel my ebay order and then reorder through Azon.

    No need for multiple pieces. The SPG's go on very easy and are extremely tuff while being clear with almost 0 distortion.

    Biggest reason I like the SPG UC one is because after a full year on my first gen N7, it was still in perfect shape. It also feels much better for me to touch as the bare glass on the new N7 feels like it has silicone on it to me....its hard for me to make stable contact at times. Also it helps cut way down on fingerprints.

    They go on dry and pretty easy to get a perfect no bubble application.

    Thanks for the report! I used one from TechArmor for my husbands Nexus 7 last year with perfect results, but have not seen any yet from that company for the new model.

    +1 for TechArmor. I used their screen protector on my Galaxy S4 and it went on really well. No trouble or screen distortion either. I actually emailed the company to ask if/when they would have a product ready for the 2nd gen. Nexus 7 and they responded that they would have something ready by the end of this week. I think I will hold out and wait until TechArmor has them available to ship.

    Spigen is on it and has great customer service. They quickly cancelled the order and refunded my PP. Ordered via Azon and got the killer deal....wow such a great bargain for the best screen saver.

    Do you have any problems with touch sensitivity with your ASUS screen protector? I got one too and was able to apply it flush with no air bubbles, but it feels like I need to make solid contact with the fleshy part of my thumb in order to select anything, which is quite the downgrade from just the bare screen.

    I cannot say there is a huge difference, after a day or two I don't notice it at all.
