Best Anti finger print screen protector
Is there any of you out there with a anti fingerprint screen protector? I am rocking a Phantom Skin but it still leaves fingerprints behind, I am considering getting the Invisible Shield one.

I use the InvisiShield. . .
Doesn't sound any different!
Not that I am not pleased with it. I am. Easy to clean and protects!
What more could I ask for???
I'm looking for one of those matte finish ones. But am concerned about how much they dilute the SuperAMOLED. . . Don't want that to happen either!

I'm using an anti-glare/matte finish screen protector that doesn't leave any fingerprints. It does degrade the screen a bit, but that's the nature of a matte finish, even with laptop screens. Screen degradation was my biggest concern with getting an anti-glare protector, but it's very minor, and I'm happy with the result.
I ordered this one from Amazon: Amazon.com: GreatShield Ultra Anti-Glare (Matte) Clear Screen Protector Film for Samsung Google Nexus S 4G (3 Pack): Cell Phones & Accessories
Keep in mind this particular one doesn't have the cutout for the front camera. I don't use the front cam so no big deal for me. This one is also the "dry" kind so easy to lift and reapply if you get dust underneath.

I'm sure there are matte screen protectors that have a cutout for the camera but this one was relatively cheap (since I didn't want to spend much and not like the matte) and I didn't think about the camera cutout at the time. If you plan to use the front camera, then definitely do NOT go with the one I bought since it makes the camera image a complete blur.
The sensors work perfectly.
Here is a post I made for my Ringke case, kind of showing the screen protector.

So from all this info, i might just keep my Phantom Skiz, if Invisible shield stilll shows finger prints, and the matte one reduces the quality of the screen... I guess I rather wipe my screen ( though not as much as being without one) the to reduce the image quality.

Ghost Armor by far the best, reason being the warranty; they will replace the film when you either stop into a kiosk or mail it back in all with out the need of a receipt.
The next factor is the amount of residue left behind from finger swipes is less than what is left behind on a Zagg invisibleshield because of the smoother surface.
Finally the films are cut to the device so sensors and cameras are exposed so that there'd be no degraded performance.
Tru Protection is the next best to GA since they are the sister company to Power Support (ipod/iphone screen protectors and Apple's choice pick). Tru uses static cling leaving any residue like Great Shield but with no loss in vibrancy. For Great Shield's Matte Screen protector if you can take a loss on color distortion, and the sensor and front camera being covered its a good buy for the price. Once again if you are looking for premium film protection, Ghost Armor by far out weighs Zagg in many aspects and for the price.
Matte is good for privacy and heavy outdoor usage, albeit the loss of color quality.
A key note to applying the films is to have the device powered off when applying and letting the film cure for an hour before turning on the device as the heat generated can distort the curing process. Using distilled water or heavily filtered tap water is a viable alternate to the proprietary solutions supplied.
This is just my personal experience and opinion, my loss is somebody else's gain.
