^^^ Well after playing with the phone a bit today after installing the Power Support HD anti-glare protector, i gotta say i really like it. I like the feel of it and how my finger glides across the screen. I doesn't diminish the clarity much at all.. overall.. i'm satisfied with it!

I've spent a lot of money looking for the best screen shields it's not even funny. The best screen shields in my opinion are PureTek shields from Pure Gear. They are the thinnest on the market at .2 mm thick. I haven't been able to find thinner. They are crystal clear therefore you don't even know you have a screen shield on. Why is being thin important? If you're like me you like to switch cases. I use an Otterbox Defender during the week because of my work environment. Friday afternoons at 3 PM when I get home from work I either go naked or switch out to an Apple bumper or a case that is very minimal in protection. Since I like front and back protection either naked the PureTek shields are compatible with the Defender. So far I haven't found front/back shields that will work with the Defender except PureTek.

My favorite screen protector skin is from Best Skins Ever. Easy to put on (yes, requires a "wet" install, but really barely any water at all) and really easy to reposition in the first few minutes if you need to. Their customer service is excellent, too, and their prices are great. I had one on my BB 9700, my EVO Shift, and also on my Transformer tablet. There is no orange peel effect with these skins, either. I haven't ordered one for my 4s yet, but only because I have an Otterbox with an included protector (and I missed BSE's 40% off sale yesteday, boo!). But since I am a case 'ho and like to change them a lot, I am sure at some point I will get a case that doesn't have a build in protector and I will need one. I won't use any other skins anymore except BSE.

I can't say enough about how happy i am with my Power Support Crystal. This is my first iphone and first screen protector so i don't have anything to compare it with but i did my best research and pretty much bought it on the strength of this video which also has a nice demo of an install Granted i misaligned mine doing it top to bottom. Second time i did the home button first and it was perfect.
It is crystal clear and clarity was my priority. Mostly because i was so impressed with the retina display that had no interest in making it less clear with an anti-glare. I've heard that that happens with the anti-glare versions. I don't care much about glare. But the crystal feels smooth as glass. but most stores, apple included only carry the anti-glare versions. The crystals are available online but i got it from their store in Venice Beach, CA. $14.95. I've had it on for about 3 weeks and it looks perfect. no bubbling whatsoever. the edges aren't coming up one bit and i use no case. One thing mine has an extra hole above the earpiece opening. I'm almost positive this is a new thing meant to prevent proximity sensor problems because it the exact shape of the white proximity whole. i have a black iphone 4s so it looks a bit weird because it doesn't have that same visible sensor opening but i guess better then a nonworking sensor. But unless you look close the darn thing is almost invisible. Oh and a Dry install and this thing sticks like it's super glued.
I will say if you take something hard to it it will slightly scratch. i did this to see if it would hold up, but the screen is well protected. and the scuff is barely visible. But it protects the screen and that's what i wanted.
A great tip for removing lint/dust (which i got since i had to remove it and do it over) is using scotch tape to lift it and a piece of tape pressed against the screen to remove the dust. Great tip as shown here. I tried it it fricken actually worked.
if you're interested in antiglare the same guy does a demo of that here For the record this isn't me in the videos. But it had a good demo of an install so i remembered it since i'd never done an install before and never bought a screen protector.
But i'd highly recommend Power Support Crystal front and back so far.
