    I got a "GadgetGuard" from Ebay... hate it. It's the same as the Zagg styles, has the orange peel effect and is not very "slick" for your fingers to slide across. Once some of the nice static-cling styles start coming out, I'm switching. I work on a construction site and HAD to have something to protect the device....

    I still think that bodyguardz is way better than Zagg. I think the feel of Zagg is too rubbery IMO.

    Well i got my bodyguardz in today and wow .... i forgot how bad screen protectors are (haven't used one in a long time)

    Bodyguardz only sells the dry applies for these so you had better get it right the first time. I put the first one on and had the alignment pretty darn close to perfect but quickly realized that, i could put my phone in a bag of nails with no protector and shake it around and it wouldn't look as bad as it does with a protector. Kind of seems like I'm defeating the purpose.

    I'm gonna take the second one and make a mixture of soap and water and apply it lightly to the back before putting it on the phone which should let me get it perfectly even and perfectly flat. I'll let that dry a bit then maybe hit it quickly with a hair dryer to tighten it up a tad. If that doesn't work i really just won't care and will find a replacement screen later down the road if i ever need one.

    1) Washed my hands good
    2) Cleaned the screen good
    3) put about 5 drops of clean water on the sticky side of the bodyguardz screen protector and with a light touch, spread the water evenly around with a clean finger (step 1)
    4) put that sucker on the screen and tweaked it until it was just perfect
    5) Pushed any air and or water out with the supplied scraper making sure to have a clean rag in 1 hand to dab up the water.
    6) After all the water was out i let it dry about 30 minutes, phone off not touching it.
    7) On a very low heat and about a foot away i used a hair drier on the phone being very careful not to heat it up too much just wanted to warm it up a bit to re-activate the glue

    The new bodyguardz looks like glass and if it weren't for it being slightly smaller then the actual plastic, you wouldn't be able to tell. In the end I'm probably going to take it off because i feel my finger doesn't slide quite as well across this but i will leave it on until bodyguardz or another high quality company comes out with an anti-glare one.

    cheers

    Good! Glad to hear. Yeah I'm a huge fan of anti glare myself.

    ClearFreak sells them for less on EBay though; I paid $3.99 plus free shipping.
    Watch the 'How to Install ' video. Has anyone done this? How do you keep the liquid from getting inside your phone??
    ClearFreak looks like the same 3M material as sold by Bodyguardz but less.

    I have the ClearFreak one installed. It's fairly easy to put on, and seems to be pretty smooth to run your fingers across the screen. I had an InvisibleShield on my Hero, and it worked well, but seemed to be more difficult to put on (I had the one for the whole phone) and a little tacky to the touch. As for getting liquid into the phone, you only use a light mist from a spray bottle, you're not dousing the phone. I was sort of worried about this too, but remember, phone's can handle some liquid (imagine being out in the rain). I kept a paper towel handy to wipe up any extra water, but there wasn't too much.
    Now I am just waiting for some hard cases to come out to put on to protect the rest of the phone.

    I have been using Zagg products on all of my phones and other devices for years, I will be getting my Optimus next week and plan on doing the same with that as well.

    I just ordered this phone (from Ebay - fingers crossed I'm not about to receive a stolen phone). I have a Moment and use a screen protector for it. I don't have anything else on my Moment and always keep in it my pocket without anything else in the pocket, and the body of my Moment is almost scratch-free. Assuming I treat my Optimus the same way, do you think I need a screen protector? Has anyone accidentally scratched this screen? I realize it is not Gorilla Glass, but has it been proven brittle and prone to scratches?

    Not only is it not gorilla glass, it's not glass. It's glass reinforced plastic. Do yourself a favor and get a screen protector.

    Hey all, I'm new to the forom but i've got "ghost armor" on mine and it works great. No "orange peel" affect and it pretty slick to the touch. Just me 2 cents.

    If you dont like the rubber feel of those ZAGG type protectors (I hate them), try this.



    I have it on my phone. Apply 3 drops of water on screen, center it and apply.

    Has anyone tried the "Dry Apply" one?

    I had the dry apply bodyguardz. The first one where i followed the instructions from bodyguardz, looked terrible. There were no gaps or bubbles but i could literally see the glue when the screen was on. It was like it distorted the screen slightly when looking close.

    I then applied the second one as a wet apply (posted instructions somewhere in this thread) and that turned out much more suitable. I still have the screen guard on for the time being until someone posts a link for an anti-glare one from a reputable company at which time I'll order that. IMHO, anti-glare protectors provide such a smooth experience when sliding your finger on the screen it's actually better feeling than not having one.

    Ahh ok. I have the anti-glare one on my Epic and I like it. I got it from the Sprint store. I have an extra one so maybe I'll trim it to fit my lady's new Optimus (if she decides to keep it). I didn't like the tacky feel of the Ghost Armor or the Invisible Shield when I had it on my Pre.
