    So I am going to buy a screen protector for the first time. What brand should I get? What brand is the best?

    I personally recommend Steinheil to everyone. My family loves it on their phones, they have the Ultra Crystal for their 4s. I used Steinheil on my OG Droid after the Zagg invisible shield (which I hated), and haven't tried any other brand since. In fact I'm waiting on a pair of Steinheil protectors for my Nexus, thought they were gonna be here today, now I gotta wait till Monday:frown:

    edi: I went with this: Amazon.com: SGP Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime Screen Protector Steinheil Series [Ultra Oleophobic]: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I find Seidio to be the best, but instead of cutting out just the speaker and the camera holes, they just cut the top right corner out completely which I think is poor design. So I'm stuck really, I don't like wet applications and it's hard to find quality dry ones other than Seidio. So right now I'm using a Droid X Seidio screen protector on mine, covers the actual screen perfectly strangely enough, but obviously leaves the top and bottom part of the glass unprotected, better than nothing for now.

    I bought 2 from Wrapsol and they were terrible, so don't buy those.

    Thanks for the links.

    I was looking at Zagg, but people say it feels too rubbery.


    Never bought a protector before.

    I have had a Zagg IS on my D2 for over a year now. I put it on the day I bought the D2, and it just now started to pull up in one of the corners. That also wasn't any fault of the screen protector. When I installed it, I let it dry just over the edge of the screen. It does feel slightly rubbery but its not anything that makes a big difference. I actually preferred the feel. Between the ruuberized coating on the back of the D2 and the screen protector, the gripability of the phone was second to none, if that makes any sense. I just upgraded to a Nexus and I intend on getting another IS for this phone, along with one for my wife, who just upgraded to a crIphone...

    I bought five on eBay for about $5, and they've held up just fine. They last about six months with daily use.

    I used my Seidio screen protector on my OG for 2 years, still no scratches on it and no edge peeling. I'd buy one for the Nexus but I don't like that they've just cut a big top right corner piece off instead of actually doing cut outs for the speaker/camera. I think when you spend $15 for a screen protector you should at least get full coverage of the face of the phone. Really bummed about them taking this shortcut, they're really the best I've ever used, keeps the glass feeling like glass.

    Edit: Realized I posted in this thread already, but I'm just disappointed with the screen protectors for the Nexus, maybe I'll try the wet application ones since they're the only ones with full coverage.

    No screen protector at all for 2 year on D1. I go totally naked. Gorilla glass is really tough but it will crack so don't drop it.
