Which screen protector?
All right, I've used cheap incipio and case mate screen protectors and a zagg. I recently removed the zagg to use my lifeproof case again but I can't stand the plastic screen protector on it and the headphone thing is annoying, great case though. Anyway, I disliked the way the zagg made the screen look and I hated the way it always felt grimy. So what are some other good screen protectors for iPhone?

i normally use the ones you can get from VzW - 3pk. for $9.99 because like you, i also have an LP that when i use it, i remove the front SP as well. I've been pretty happy with them & they are self stick, pretty much easy to apply and work out IF any bubble show up.
i don't invest in top quality SP's because i remove it for the LP when needed.

:ogoes to show i've been in the house all winter long and forgot what it was like to try to read a phone screen on a bright & sunny beautiful day !!
fortunately my local AT&T has them 2/$15, as i'm also a VzW cust & no one had them here either !!

I also use the 3 pack screen protectors from the VZW store. I have used various zagg models, both dealer installed and self installed, and found that even the new ones have a orange peel look, and feel strange to me, very sticky, not to mention if I take it off for some reason, they are a bit spendy, where the Verizon ones are I think 12$ for 3, are perfectly clear, and have a similar smooth feel to the glass. The only thing is I wish they went edge to edge, but they are very close.

We use Zagg Invisisble Shield HD's on all our electronics, and have been happy with them.
The newer "HD" line does not have the orange peel feel to them, they are more glass-like, only knock would be they cut them a bit smaller. Still, a nice product with a lifetime warranty.

I use ghost armor.
Zagg/invisishield is too thick for me and is gets really grainy looking after awhile. They also tend to get scratched really easy for me :/ I always have a line or something running down my screen after a week.
I know there are better ones you can buy online and install yourself but I really suck at doing it myself.

I'm in the same boat, I have and as I said earlier, happy with the Verizon store ones, but they only last about a month, and have to be changed for me. The thing I he liked about the Zaggs is that they pretty much don't ever get worn, you can pretty much keep them on for the life of the device in my experience. I will have to check out the new HD version, if it really is clear that may be my next SP

I really hated the regular Zagg screen protector. The orange peel feel drove me nuts and I ended up taking it off. A friend of mine got a new iPhone and had the new Zagg HD installed on it. I was very impressed how clear it was. Went to Best Buy the other day and got the new HD and had them install it. I love it. Very clear and it is hard to believe that I have one on my iPhone 4S. No orange peel and is smooth as glass. Having an HD put on my wife's iPhone 4S today. Totally sold on it. I never thought I would ever go back to Zagg. I am back and staying.

I know i've already posted in here about the 3pk from VzW sp's - but going back about 3, maybe 4wks ago being out in the nicer weather made it more difficult to see my screen with the glossy screen protector. I went to my Apple store here and purchased the 2pk of anti-glare sp's for $15 - i really like them!! I applied one to my screen & the hubby stole the other from me lol. I did buy a couple from my local AT&T shop before the Apple ones, but i wasnt too impressed with them.
For the few dollars more i'd rather go to Apple & get a better quality anti-glare sp I would recommend them if you looking for the anti glare type
oh, and also just to add - they are fine with using a Mophie (sliding the phone in & out) as well as the Speck candy shells or the flip cases too!

Does it work with the Speck Grip, which I just bought?
I can't seem to get the case on without having the screen protector pucker up at the corner to the point where I have to remove either the case or the protector.
Am I doing something wrong or do I just have the wrong screen protectors. I am using the ones that come with Incipio cases.

As for are you doing something wrong putting the case on your phone & the screen prot is puckering up-I can't say. There really is no wrong way to put your phone into a speck case, including a grip. for the short time I had mine, It's just like putting it into a candyshell but with more flex. Idk what kind of sp's Incipio offers-the one case I have from them I never used the sp from them. It could be their type of sp. idk. ???
Just a suggestion-as for putting your phone into the speck grip - i'd say start at the top and insert the top portion of your phone, then work down putting one side in, then finish up by inserting the other side and bottom. Maybe that will help your sp from puckering up.

I may just go to the Apple store and have them install the screen protector that you got and have them put it in the case. I can never seen to apply them and have them look perfect.
Do you know which model you bought there, or are there different ones?
