    Maaan... now you guys got me on the fence. I was gonna go all Seidio with protector/case/battery cuz I'm a lazy jerkstore. Now I'm all curious about the Stein's.

    (Mind you, I'm still gonna go with Seidio's battery...)

    Well I just received my Steinheil Ultra Crystal and I would love to put them on but there's just one problem....NO TB!!?!!?!?!!?!!?! I still can't believe that my screen protectors (shipped by the post office) came before my Thunderbolt (Fedex). I ordered both on the same day at pretty much the same time, maybe 5 minutes difference, and the USPS stomped on Fedex.

    For anyone having trouble deciding which screen protector to use, I highly recommend the steinheil ultra crystal. No bubbles and you can't even notice that its on there. They might be a tad pricey, but they are worth it.

    After debating back and forth for a bit on which to get I went with Steinheil Ultra Crystal. It's awesome. Extremely happy with it. Super clear. Thanks for this thread as am a newbie when it comes to smart phones and wouldn't have had a clue to what kind of screen protector to get.

    I have the fine too, debated trying the crystal for a while as well. How are you liking it so far? I like the anti-fingerprint and anti-glare that you get with the fine, as I tend to leave finger marks behind on my other devices with protectors (old phones, ipods, etc.). I heard that the crystal can get smudges on it and has kind of a shiny glare to it, even though it is super clear and looks naked otherwise. The only time I can tell I have a protector on with the fine is with the screen off, but I actually like the look of it and I was initially worried because it has that matte finish. It is the clearest and cleanest matte finish you will find, and I am very pleased with it, best protector I've ever had. Application was so easy, I usually have a bubble or flaw of some sort when I do it, got it with no dust on the first try. It was not great for outdoor use with the screen turned down though, so I downloaded Brightness Level widget (by Curvefish) to quickly toggle to different screen levels depending on location (since I did not want to use Auto).

    I let the guy at the verizon store put an anti-glare on for me. At first I was very disappointed. Didn't like at all. LOL But when I got home yesterday and took my D1 and bolt outside I could see the Bolt a lot better. As I work and spend a lot of time outdoors. I think I will like this anti-glare.:)

    Yeah I'm torn as well, I followed your advise initially on the screen protector :p. I really love the matte surface, super smooth, the only issue I have with it, it's not as see through as I hoped for.

    " Anti Finger screen protector is matte type hard film which resists against fingerprints, and smudges, but it is less clear compared to other Steinheil screen protectors."

    I had to return my first bolt so I'm on my last screen protector. I might just spring for the Crystal, can't believe I'm complaining on a freaking screen protector :D

    I just installed the Steinheil ultra clear on my phone, and it's amazing. It feels like there's nothing on the screen at all. The protector isn't a perfect fit, but it's barely noticeable. Using it will still leave some finger smudges/streaking, but definitely not as much as when the phone is naked. I somewhat wish I would have ordered the oil resistant protector.

    I tried a Zagg protector last week, but I didn't care for the rubbery feel of the protector at all. It made the screen way too grippy. The screen also had manufacturer defects (horizontal lines).

    I would advise you guys to purchase a screen protector. When I was installing the Steinheil and wiping the screen down, I noticed a small scratch on my screen. I can only see it at a certain angle, so it's not so bad. I take very good care of my phone, and was pretty surprised when I realized it was a scratch (phone goes in a quilted case thing before it goes in my purse, etc.). So watch out to all you people going naked!

    i found a link on twitter last night that htcpedia was giving screen protectors away with free shipping. i hopped on it quickly and ordered 1 it is back ordered but free is free. i also bought a Steinheil ultra crystal protector comes with 2 for 10.99 with free shipping from sgpstore.com but with 4-7 days shipping. i dont mind the lil wait to save $5 shipping. ive always had zagg but after reading the reviews for the Steinheil protectors i figured id give it a shot.

    There's a bodyguardz kiosk in the mall right by me, so I had them install it for me. It was $25 with installation. I'm actually kinda bummed I got it... I used to have these on all my old non-touchscreen phones, but didn't really need one with the DX/D1 because of the gorilla glass.

    I'm not really sure I like the rubbery feel of this one. I'm going to keep it on for a week or two and see if I get used to it. If not, off it goes and I'll order one of those Steinheil ones.
