No It just looks Terrible with the screen protector on.
UPDATE: I took off the screen protector, and I Can see the original retina beauty. Thanks for all the input guys I will definitely take it into consideration when purchasing a new screen protector this weekend, But for now am rolling naked with my phone constantly wrapped in a HUGE Micro fiber cloth for protection. (Just in-case)
I Will post back with my observations when I make a decision.

I was actually using the Helium 2 pack from Bestbuy...and for the last couple of weeks I had an extra antiglare screen so slid it on...I liked the fact that there was no fingerprints or glare. But oh what it did to actually take away from the retina display. Everything looked grainier and not clear.
So picked up another Helium 2 pack and put that back on...Once again, I'm loving the clear crispiness of the the retina display. So bright and clear, and protected.

GREAT NEWS: I went to the Apple store (Its in a mall) over the weekend, after finishing my business, directly outside of Apple was a lil kiosk that was selling, iPhone cases and screen protectors I was skeptical but I went up to the guy and asked him to put one on my wife's phone (The test phone ) he did and I was frankly amazed, you could not tell it was there and I compared it with my phone and there was no sign of image degradation, I was blown away so I got one for myself. The somewhat oily look that I had with the old screen protector when I hold it at an angle, was no more. So my adventure in picking the right screen protector for my iPhone is over and I am a happy camper. Been a blast sharing this on the forums.
PS. I was so fascinated by how the guy was cleaning the screen to put on the protector that I totally forgot to check the brand, all I remember is that it was in a Black case.

I've used Clarivue Ultra-clear on my last 3 phones and you cannot tell it's on the phone. They're marked down to $12.99 for a 2 pack and free shipping. I swear by them.

I have an iPod touch and although it doesn't have Retina display, i had a screen protector on it and it made it very blurry. I just recently took it off, like literally 10 minutes ago, and the picture is ridiculously clearer. By the way, the screen protector was a no-name knockoff that i got from Chinatown... BAD IDEA lol. I'm just lucky that it didn't mess it up at all.
