    Default Verizon's Galaxy S3 screen protector is matte!

    What a disappointment! Last screen protector I got from Verizon was for my Droid 2 and was completely clear.

    This matte screen protector for the Siii shimmers and makes text hard to read.

    I hate it.

    Don't rush to buy this protector from Verizon.

    Now after having wasted $15 on Verizon's I have to find something reasonable that's totally clear and easy to apply!

    There are two versions we have you got the incorrect version. You got the smudge / anti-glare matte type, but we do carry the basic clear screen protectors. By no means are these of same overall quality and needs for people looking at SPG / Zagg / and other high end options.

    the Verizon store here sold two versions. One was called an anti glare version and I'm assuming the other one was a standard version. I didn't get the anti glare because I was afraid it would be kind of like a matte surface. Did you get the kind that's supposed to be anti glare?

    Go with SGP Steinheil screen protectors. I use them on all my devices.

    They told me they only had the matte screen.

    I have Zagg screens on my cameras and they're super - pricey, though.

    Guess I'll have to go back and hope they will exchange mine.

    Yes...mine is anti glare and matte - they never offered me a choice.

    I tried the SPG Nano Optics and was unsatisfactory - matte and not smooth when sliding across the screen. Thought it would be clear with a name like optics and but was not. I went to Verizon and got their stock clear protector which is a boring unnoticeable screen protector - exactly what I wanted.

    Thanks for the helpful feedback.

    I'd rather go to Verizon and have them put on the screen protector.

    After years of putting screen protectors on digital camera lcds my technique hasn't improved and I nearly always wind up with either bubbles or debris under the protector.

    If this happens at Verizon, they have to right it...and I sure hope they right the gaff that the salesgirl made when she didn't offer me a clear protector option!

    I went to Verizon as well to get mine. They also pulled the matte version without asking. Fortunately, I noticed it before they put it on.

    I half wonder if they're choosing the more expensive version wihtout asking to get a higher commission or bonus.

    They install it for free, which is worth it because I can never install these without bubbles.

    That's just freaking crazy. So what does the "HD" do?

    Zagg has always been way overpriced, imo.

    Same scenario, asked for screen protectors and got the matte.
    Learned of the clear and they exchanged them.
    I have to admit, the matte's "anti-glare" feature was pretty cool. Too bad it blurs up the screen too much.

    I kind of wish they used something besides Gorilla Glass since everyone puts on screen protectors anyways. Would rather have a more softer glass material than can resist drop better than glass thats scratch resistant.

    Makes sense, but they usually come with those squeegee cards to help with those bubbles.
    I have the Ringbo protector and I didn't even need to press out any bubbles.

    The ones I got from Verizon are perfectly clear.

    I agree about having them install it!

    They did replace my matte anti glare screen protectors with clear ones and the young man who waited on me just handed me the new package (which he had to go into the back to find - obviously the girl who sold me the phone just grabbed what was hanging nearby).

    I asked him to put the protector on and my stomach is finally unknotted.

    Setting up a new phone can be stressful! The hunt and the acquisition are fun, but actually getting it to work the way you want it to is another story.

    For some reason, I just suck at it. I tried in the past and always had problems installing it. The protectors are way overpriced for the quality you get, but it isn't a bad price for 3 installed protectors, if you suck at it like me.

    I always go Steinheil or Zagg! I have never paid full price for a Zagg SP, the most being about $10. I look around online and find good deals!
