    Newbie Droid owner here...

    Anyone recommend protective film for the large screen on the Droid? Since 99% of the face of this thing is screen, I'm worried about it getting scratched.

    i had the plastic type protector (sold at Verizon store) from day one and have been using it for more than a month now. i really didnt like the fact it was an oil magnet.

    after seeing a couple of videos and reading peoples responses to going with a nude screen, i pulled that damned thing off. the gorilla glass is really amazing. i do have the leather style case on it still (also from verizon), so this does give protection around the edges. but the responsiveness and overall feel of navigating through the menus without the screen protector is so much better. i will never put one on again!!

    on a side note, i also noticed so many people talking about how Linux works and how any Task killer is not needed. i uninstalled it just a few days ago, but i can tell a difference for the better. the start up of apps, and menu nav seems to be less laggy. not a huge night and day difference, but noticeable.

    appreciate all the info provided by those who know more about this amazing phone than i do.

    you guys are great!

    Steinheil Crystal - crystal clear like glass, smooth as silk, and doesn't show prints.

    yea i have tried both SGP Steinheil Antifingerprint and Crystal
    but ended up with Crystal. I was sort of annoyed by the fingerprints on the crystal at first and switched to antifingerprint but I ended up changing back. I missed the clear screen too much. :icon_ banana:
    it feels like nothings on when i put the crystal on. the response on the touchscreen doesn't seem like it's affected as well. very responsive.

    There are a ton of threads on screen protectors. Definitely check them out.

    I do not recommend ScreenGuardz. They're decent and cheap, but impossible to get rid of all bubbles and when I have used a friend's (who has a different protector on it) I realize just how "sticky" mine is - although I don't really notice it - it's NOT smooth as glass as my friends. There's a reason they sell them in 10-packs too. Monthly replacement, at least.

    I had my steinheil crystal on for about close to 3 wks now and have no sign of bubble what so ever. I put this on as I took my droid out of the box and I honestly can't even tell if this thing is on. It is not sticky like zagg and is definately smooth as glass.

    Just posted this on another thread.

    I installed the Invisible Shield today. Went on perfectly, as I've been religiously using the Zagg product for years on other phones.

    Since I've been using the Droid "naked" for the past month, I can say that the Invisible Shield definitely reduces response, feel and visual quality slightly. Not bad though, just not 100% transparent on the tactile and visual fronts.

    Not sure how long I'll keep it on.

    No screen protector for me.

    I have tried the protectors from the Verizon store, and the Zagg product. Both are crap. I then watched the you tube video (search under Gorilla Glass) and have gone without protection ever since. Clean it with a wet rag every now and then and dry it with a paper towel, or your jeans - doesn't matter. No problem.

    Thanks for starting this thread! My search brought me here too. How much was it for the install? Where do you find it in the mall?
    I bought the cheapo Ebay 3 pack and it's thick bubbly plastic that's terrible.
