    Default My Clarivue Nexus 4 screen protector (front/back) mini review w/pics

    Hey guys and gals, I just wanted to post a quick mini review of the Clarivue screen protectors I received yesterday. I have used there products back in the Nokia N95 days, and figured since there aren't too many screen protectors out there, I'd give them a try again. I did not feel like waiting for Spigen to release front and back SPs. You get 2 front and 2 back protectors. With coupon, it cost less than $15.

    I was a little hesitant to put the front on because that N4 glass is buttery smooth. On the other hand, I also didn't want hairline scratches so I slapped the front on too.

    First, the screen quality still stays the same and Clarivue has not lost it's touch. Top notch screen protectors like I remembered. As you can see in the pics, it doesn't go to the curve part of the glass. I will tell you this and you can't tell from the pics, you can hardly notice in person. The screen STILL feels buttery smooth, very impressed by that. The sensors are cutout so no worries there. I actually don't mind it going to the curved part because cases might bubble it up for sure. My Diztronic case (check for that review soon) should be here any day now, and believe it will complement the screen protector perfectly.

    The back screen protector is simply awesome. You can't even tell there is a protector on the phone. Again, the photos you see pick it up to the extreme. Just wanted to show the detail of the cutouts.

    So to wrap up, anyone in the market for front/back SPs, look no further. $15 is better than the OCD people like me who hate scratches on there devices.

    Here are the pics, enjoy!

    Is that the anti-glare or ultra clear? Also, what coupon are you referring to?

    Thanks man, no they are very easy to apply if you have experience applying screen protectors. The static cling of these SPs are top notch.

    After a few days, the clarity is amazing to me.

    I have the ultra clear.

    I found the front protector didn't cover the screen entirely, there is a little open space at the edges. Also, I had a very difficult time getting the air bubbles out. Somehow a small spec of dirt got trapped between the screen and screen protector and I can't get it out. I installed the screen protector immediately after getting the phone and there was no debris on the screen. Also, I find it REALLY attracts fingerprints. Even more so than a naked screen.

    Overall not bad, but I would be interested in trying something else for comparison.

    i have the exact same problem, very frustrating, to the point i want to rip this off and trash it. i have a spec of dirt that got caught from the half second i peeled off the OEM cover to applying this one. I also thought there was a back cover, but it appears they are two front covers. very disappointing.

    *edit* maybe i was shipped an irregular unit with two fronts and no back covers.

    *second edit* I never noticed the option to buy the full set when i ordered. I did not receive an irregular set. These come with 2 front skins, you pay extra for the full set.

    Thanks to your review I ordered my set, should be here soon! I'm actually more concerned with the back than the front, but I'll use both to see how it goes. Thanks!

    Yep - this is the real draw for me - i.e. protecting the back glass. I'll try out the front too though.
