    I purchased the Steinheil oleophobic for my mom's iPhone5 and put it in a sena case that does not have a lip on it and now the steinheil is peeling off from around the edges. It is terrible and I thought this was supposed to be one of the premium screen protectors?

    Any recs for a great screen protector?

    Check the Deal of the day here in the forum. You might find that to you liking and can buy it right here from the iMore store.

    Do a search here in the Accessories forum. There are multiple threads debating the merits of various screen protectors.

    idk, the steinheil oleophobic have received great reviews in the past. I just can't believe how bad this one is. Maybe they changed?


    Ibut give ghost armor a look...
    Thanks, will take a look. The thing that I always worried about with ghost armor is the difficulty of application.

    Have you looked any tempered glass screen protectors? I'm rocking the spigen sgp premium tempered glass screen protector. It's fantastic.

    No, I just realized they made them. Does it decrease the screen's responsiveness? The Steinheil oleophobid, which is a spigen sgp product also, peeled and significantly decreased the screen's responsiveness.

    I've had the Spigen GlasT on my 5 since December. Looks like glass. Feels like glass. Can't tell there's anything on there. I suspect there's little difference between the glass screen protectors, and all the major players now have them (including Radio Shack!). Love mine. Can't imagine going without.

    If you have a kiosk near you then I would order it from ghost armor direct and take it to your local kiosk to have it installed or you can just go to the kiosk and get everything there. I think they only charge $10 (USD) for installation if you bring the ghost armor with you. Another plus is you get a lifetime warranty, (life of the phone) you can take it back whenever you like and they will re-wrap the phone for $5.

    If you buy everything in one shot at the kiosk I believe it is a total cost of $40(USD) with installation.

    But again it's user preference and cost that plays a factor.

    I don't unfortunately. If I did, I would definitely have them put it on.

    Ahh! Well, best of luck to you on your search. I'm sure there are plenty of people with iphones around. Ask what they use and check out their phones.

    The Steinheil oleophobic is an sgp product, this is why I was so disappointed.

    Are they hard to put on?

    Nope! They are very simple. You drop it on your iPhone and align. I did it by sliding my nails around the edges so that it was perfectly squared. Once it's in place, you tap the center which releases the adhesive and spreads out, leaving you with a perfectly placed screen protector with no bubbles.

    Do you keep your phone in a case or do you keep it totally naked?

    I am starting to dislike Zagg even thought it is all I use. I hate the texture of the original and now I thought I had hope with the HD and I was wrong. It is clear but it scratches really easily and with the screen off looks like crap.

    I have the original on my Lumia 820, which I have dropped face down many times, and it still looks great. I have even used it many times with dirt/sand on my fingers and it hasn't scratched. I am hopefully the one I got for my iPhone doesn't go bad.

    That is the thing, they advertise that their screens have nano self healing technology. The originals seem to hold up to that but the HD versions do not. I like how clean the originals look when the screen is off, do not like how it looks with it on. I like how the HD look with the screen on, but not off lol
