    I've got the Ultra Crystal on my DX and it's been great except for the smudges. But now I see that they have two other kinds of protectors. Anyone prefer one over the other?

    Samsung Galaxy S3 Screen Protector Steinheil Series - GALAXY S3 - Samsung - Cell Phones


    SGP Steinheil Ultra Crystal Film
    SGP Steinheil Ultra Crystal Film is a high quality film with a hard surface. It protects the LCD screen from scratches and features an advanced optical enhancement layer that improves viewing on LCD screens.

    SGP Steinheil Ultra Oleopobic Film
    SGP Steinheil Ultra Oleopobic Film features an oil-resistant coating that keeps it's surface clean. It protects the LCD screen from scratches and features an advanced optical enhancement layer that improves viewing on LCD screens.

    SGP Steinheil Ultra Optics Film
    SGP Steinheil Ultra Optics Film : Anti-Fingerprint, Premium Grade Optical Enhanced Screen Protector Film that feature microlens Array surface layer. Microlens Array on the surface of the matte anti-fingerprint film dramatically increase the light transmittance while offering an excellent, smooth surface texture with smudge resistant property.
    Already got my cases ordered. Now I need the screen protector and extra charges and stuff and I'll be all set. Well, except for the phone to use them with!

    Only the Ultra Crystal are for sale right now. The other two say 'coming soon'.

    I've had Ultra Crystal on my Droid X, and it has held up well. My wife got a 4s a month ago, and I got the Oleophobic version for her... I think I will get the Oleophobic for the SGS3.

    Read about the "Coverage" and make sure you're OK with it not going to the absolute edge of the glass.

    Yeah, I *think* I will be OK with it not going to the edges. I prefer a "hard" screen protector as opposed to the "softer" ones, in general. If not it won't be too expensive to try the other one.

    These are definitely one of the best screen protectors but they all will degrade the image and decrease the brightness to some degree. To me, maintaining the clarity and brightness is more important than minimizing some fingerprints. It looks like the ultra oleophobic and ultra optics would be the two best overall.

    It is actually very hard for me to tell the difference between the ultra crystal on my DX and the oleophobic on the wife's 4S, I was glad to see the oleophobic was clear and did not have a matte finish.

    How does this brand compare to the Seidio brand screen protectors?

    I have always bought the Seidio brand because they are hard, clear, and hold up to scratches very well.

    Sent an email asking about when the Oleophobic would be available and got this response:
    Thank you for contacting Spigen.com Customer Service Department.
    Hi, my name is Diana from Spigen.com.

    Unfortunately, as of now, we are uncertain when the Ultra Oleophobic Screen Protector for the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be availabe since it has been delayed, yet again. I would assume that it should arrive by the end of the month, but I cannot make any guarantees at the moment. We sincerely apologize for the delay and the inconvenience.

    If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Thank you.
    Meh. Looks like I might be going with Ultra Crystal if they can't get it out before I get the phone.

    It looks like they no longer have the Ultra Crystal and instead have something new called Ultra Nano Clear.



    SPIGEN SGP Steinheil™ Ultra Screen Protector Film is a high quality film with a hard surface. It protects the LCD screen from scratches and features an advanced optical enhancement layer that improves viewing on LCD screens. The Nano Clear is created to work with the curved screen of the Galaxy S3. The Nano Clear is thinner and more flexible to adhere to the screen of the S3. It is also cut smaller than the screen to prevent any bubbles and lifting from the edges of the screen protector.

    It almost looks like they might have combined the Ultra Crystal and Oleophobic?

    You can still get the Ultra Crystal on Amazon.

    Looks like it. Steinheil Ultra Nano Clear for the Galaxy S3 combines clarity and oil-resistance. / SPIGEN SGP Blog

    Seems like this is the one to get as it is apparently has improvements and is the best of both.

    Now I am pissed. I just received the Ultra Clear product on Friday via Amazon, and it's already outdated, and I don't even have my phone yet! And the new product is the same price as the old product!

    I applied my ultra crystal after getting my phone on the 21st and got a great application. After using it for a few days, I like the ultra oleophobic protectors better. I have it on my GNote and it really does help cut down on fingerprints and oils based on my experience.

    Are you comparing both SGP ultra crystal and oleophobic? Is the oleophobic as clear as the ultra crystal? Any downside to oleophobic?

    Just go to......... amazon.com/returns. I LOVE amazon!! So easy to do anything with them!
    My reason for return is: No longer needed/wanted
    Return Details: I wrote, "Spigen released the Ultra Nano screen protector which is better than this one."

    I just printed my return authorization and just need to bring into work the screen protectors and package it up for USPS for tomorrow. Will lose on shipping it back but AT LEAST I'm getting ONE EXTRA screen protector with the other. Better deal and value if you ask me!
