    Anyone know what the best screen protector for the Rezound is out there? I know I want a wet application one. I've tried the static cling ones and I can never get them on right and something always gets under them.

    I've seen the Zaggs but the ones I see seem bumpy, is this just the way they are or is that bad application.

    Any other ones to recommend? Obviously I want the clearest one I can find so it doesn't affect the screen clarity.

    A Zagg, if properly applied, is worth every penny as far as protection. But they're tricky to apply and, if you get one, be prepared to spend a good amount of time working to get it on correctly! The cheap ones (like 6 for a few bucks on Ebay) are just that - cheap. I've bought those before also and had to use 3 or 4 out of that pack of 6 to get one to apply correctly.

    I'm currently using the ones you get at the Verizon store. You get three for about $16 and, if they don't offer, you can ask and the employees will apply the first one for you and do a pretty good job (lots of practice, as one put it to me). They're not as tough as the Zagg one, but even if you apply them yourself it's not hard to get it on without any major problems.

    I prefer the ones at the VZW store. I do not like the cheapo ones found on various place on the web. Zagg isn't bad either but has kind of a tacky feel to the surface. I am going without a screen protector now to see how it goes.

    The wet install ones, like Zagg and Skinomi, if installed correctly, are the best out there. You do have to give the wet install skins a day or so to properly set and let it get rid of the micro bubbles on its own.

    The nice thing about the wet install skins, is if you mess it up, you can take if off, and rinse it under warm water and add a little of a light or mild soap to clean it, pat dry with a clean lint free towel of course and try to pat dry the sticky side, then try to reapply it.

    Go naked. It's the best and unless you work in construction or keep loose diamonds in your pocket, you probably won't scratch the screen.

    I took my phone to the local Zagg store. They charged 15 to buy it and 5 if they put it on. That is how much Best Buy is anyways without the application. It has a lifetime warranty. When I swapped my phone out, I just unpeeled it and took it back and they put another one on. They do a good job. If you are not happy with it and there are bubbles and lint (and I am very picky!) they will reapply. The bumpy look actually helps a little with the reflection and glare. I cant really even tell its there. There is a little more resistant when sliding your fingers across the screen. People either seem to like em or hate em. The verizon get scratched and messy pretty quick and they dont have the perfect cut out for the screen like the Zagg does. Hope that helps.

    It does thanks. I dont like the bumpy look though. I think I may get the skintomi, if I get one. Only thing that worries me now is having to leave it off for 12 to 24 hours.

    Yeah they're expensive and add way too much bulk to the phone. I like the profile the way it is so Im not putting a case on it even. Just a screen protector. In fact I got the Extended battery for it and I'm not even sure I want to use that, the phone looks like the humpback with that back on it. They could have done a lot better with that I think.
