    I use one just because I have scratched screens before. Gorilla glass is not scratch proof just resistant.

    As far as I know the only screen protectors they carry, for all devices, are Zagg. They've got a deal.

    I was a fan of Zagg till I've had it replaces twice. They still scratch easily. I may try another brand.

    Ok that is the only one I have ever seen there as well. On a side note, I heard the ZAGG SMUDGE PROOF protector works well for the Note 2. However, I heard the Zagg specifically designed for the Note 2 is lousy. Anyone got any info on this? Thanks.

    Spigen is the absolute best.

    Once applied right you can not even tell it's there (at least with the Ultra Crystal and Ultra Oleophobic).

    So essentially there's no reason NOT to use one. You're protecting your screen without sacrificing a thing, except for $13.99.
    I'm gonna try these. Thanks for posting them.

    So what one do you suggest for our N2? I see they have like 3 or 4 different kinds. Thanks.

    Have not used the Zagg smudge proof, but I can tell you that the regular Invisibleshield (not HD) is absolute crap on this phone. I tore mine off after only one week because it made the screen look terrible. Plus, the S-Pen indented it easily.

    I hear on amazon ,some complain about SPG (and perhaps all brands) that the size does not fully cover the beautiful Note 2 screen, so you see the edges and it is a bit annoying. anyone using SPG care to comment on the size issue ?
    I use the spigen SPG (the one for your eyes 16.99) and is the bomb. It's like it's not even there. Looks like I'm looking into glass while adding the benefit of a screen protector. As far as the fit. Is true that they don't go all the way to the edges of the screen. That's because the screen is bezeled around the entire front edge. It fits nicely on the screen but there is a 3-5 mm gap around the screen. It bothered me the first day I had it but now is no big deal. Especially for the trade off of what you're getting. It's totally worth it. Oh, and the spen works great on it too. No sticky feeling just a smooth writing surface. How this helps you make a decision.

    Just depends on what you like.

    1. Ultra Crystal - once on you don't know it's there, which means you do get fingerprints.

    2. Anti Glare - less fingerprints, but dulls the screen clarity.

    3. Ultra Oleophobic - resists oils, but maintains more clarity.

    Thank you guys. Have you tried the lates Ultra Optics model? Do you think that would mess with the screen? Its confusing on the description.

    The Ultra Optics is an anti glare shield that very clear. However, I found that the material made an odd sound when swiping across it with one's finger.

    From the website

    All of our screen protectors are Japanese made, enhanced optical hard films. Ultra Crystal and Ultra Oleophobic screen protectors are both clear type where it absolutely doesn't affect the screen image quality. Ultra Crystal has glass-like surface coating with the best resistance against scratches. Ultra Oleophobic has an oil resistant coating to resist oil and other contaminants. Ultra Fine screen protector is matte type hard film which resists against fingerprints and smudges, but it is less clear compared to other Steinheil screen protectors. Ultra Optics is our newest product which is anti-fingerprint and anti-glare and does not interfere with retina display

    I am going to stay away from the fine since they say "it is less clear compared to other steinheil screen protectors"

    I have the SPG and you are right, it does not cover the whole screen on the Note2. That's because the Note2 has slightly rounded edges and it would not fit correctly if it went to the edge. This doesn't affect the product to me, what does though is that it is extremely hard to put on correctly (lots of bubbles) and terrible directions. I would recommend something else...

    I will comment here. I installed a SGP Crystal screen protector on my note 2 and a week in it got scratched. The scratch is not that bad but visible during use. So yes, always install a screen protector no matter what.

    Matt it got scratched WITH the screen protector on or it got scratched BEFORE you put the screen protector on?

    I was unable to quickly find a case or screen protector that I liked. So when I got my white Note 2, I decided to just get Ghost Armor to protect it till I go on an all out search. There is a kiosk right in the mall where the AT&T store is. It's full body and it cost $35.00 plus tax. I am really unexpectedly happy with this. I have tried these skins before. They are very difficult for me to install. I've done it, but it's been a struggle, came out okay, but not perfect. They install it for you and it is perfect. It is crystal clear and very hard. It also gives a better grip to the phone, but not sticky like Zagg. It's like having a naked phone but better. I carry it in a clip pouch to the pocket of my jeans or in my handbag. Works great! I probably won't buy a case now until I can find one like I had for the Note 1 that is very low profile and has a kickstand that works in portrait mode. Do love the kickstand, but now feel no pressure to buy until the right one, in a color I like comes along.
