    I like the Anti-Glare.. works great.

    Crystal would be clearer but wouldn't take care of the fingerprints/smudges..

    Can't have both, decide what matters more to you.

    I used the Power Support Anti-Glare\Anti-Fingerprint on my last 3G and loved it, I got so used to the feel of the screen protector I preferred it over the glass.

    Now with 3GS the screen is much clearer and brighter so I'm trying to get used to the glass with no screen cover on it.

    I tried, but couldn't take the feeling of the glass. Seemed to sluggish/tacky.. needed the smoothness of the Anti-Glare.

    OMG Anti-Glare is the BEST! I've used it on all of my WM phones and now my iPhone 3G and 3Gs.

    I will say that the PS is the best Anti-Glare I've used because the others have been too thick and cause the screen to be unresponsive.

    Now with the new coating on the 3Gs any screen protector is a must. I hate that coating.

    Funny - to each his/her own. I LOVE the 3GS screen as is - and my daughter, who has had a iPod Touch for a while, loves the screen much better than the glass also. I was in the ATT store the other day and tried one out with a Case-Mate screen protector and did not like that feel at all.

    Now, if I were to cover that wonderful screen, I would go Crystal as I want the screen to look as natural as possible.

    The Anti-Glare is still pretty clear. And I don't ever have to deal with fingerprints like I would with a crystal screen protector.

    Apple gave me a Anti Glare for free when I did my last exchange and I like how it doesnt leave smudges but I do not like how it gives it a foggy look. I just tried to buy the Crystal at the Apple store and they are sold out.

    This is one of those things that are very subjective - what's clear to you may be foggy to him and, frankly, me too.

    I just bought the anti-glare and it's awesome. No problems with the installation and it looks great. I saw a friend's iphone with no cover and it was hideous with the fingerprints/oils.

    If it was foggy the screen would be hard to see.

    The screen is not crystal clear but it still looks great. The Anti-Glare does not take anything away from the screen.

    It was tough for me to read smaller lettering. I went and bought the Crystal from apple on Saturday and I just absolutely love it. Its like I have no screen protector on its so crystal clear. The Anti glare just take away from the beautiful large screen. JMHO

    Sure it is more clear with the crystal product on it, but the finger prints show.

    But in the end it's about what makes you happy, not me or anyone else

    Yes the finger prints show but I just deal with it. Almost impossible to get one that is 100% prerfect all the way around.

    I hate the anti glare. On my first iphone, I put it on right out of the box. It worked great. Didn't think anything bad of it.

    When I got the 3gs, I put on a crystal one right out of the box not even thinking (I just grabbed the first screen protector I saw, didn't realize there were two kinds). I was amazed at how much clearer the screen was on the 3gs and how much more finger friendly it was (much slicker and pleasant to touch). I quickly realized it wasn't the screen that was different but the protector.

    I will never use an anti glare again.

    Well after a few months i changed my mind and stuck with the anti glare. I used the crystal and i just noticed that it was always dirty, i would clean it and touch the screen and it was a mess again. For the anti glare i would clean it and get a few uses out of it before i would have to really clean the screen at all... And really you dont see much of a difference between the two as for clarity.........

    I think this is a case of personal choice. Both the Crystal and the Anti-Glare are great. Each have pros and cons. For example, I found the Anti-Glare better than the Crystal. I like the texture of the Anti-Glare more than Glass. No fingerprints and easy to clean. Crystal has a different texture, and I personally prefer the Anti-Glare. Just my take.

    I use the PS Anti-Glare as well & it feels good, love how it keeps fingerprints off, screen is clear. I'm not sure what the fogginess is people are speaking of. It is slightly & I mean only SLIGHTLY darker & nothing the brightness couldn't counteract. To the people complaining of "fogginess" possibly be using an anti-glare made by someone else other than Power Support or maybe you got fingerprints on the sticky side?

    Anti glare for me too. I love the way it feels, and the slight lack of clarity is a welcome trade-off for zero fingerprints

    I took my anti-glare off just to change things up.

    Love the feel of the screen without any shield on it.. now I just have to be extra careful with it.
