    I'm partial to my Steinheil Flex. Been using it for a while now.

    Well I have some pretty good experience in putting on screen protectors so it was pretty easy for me. The UO is a dry application as well. I've had the case on since December and it has peeled or anything, it's a very durable case. The fact that it doesn't take up the whole screen is a concern to many, especially if it peels, but believe me it doesn't and my phone goes in and out my pocket hundreds of times a day.

    I have noticed that it does keep fingerprints on the protector longer. I play alot of outdoor basketball so it could be due to that, but otherwise if your hands are clean it's pretty good with fingerprints. It does give a different feel compared to glass (then again what protector doesn't), but your finger or swipes don't stick like on most I've used in the past.

    There's a tutorial on youtube, just look up steinheil ultra oleophobic nexus, or something along those lines and you can see this guy install it on his phone, it really is that simple.

    I use xtremeguard. It was very inexpensive, only $5. Application was easy and smooth. Keeps the screen smooth and slick as well.

    I'm looking into selling them. I just tested a new kind on my wife's IPhone while she was sleeping and she had no idea it was there. Felt like glass.

    That's funny. Gotta love the "black ops" style install.

    It wasn't easy I've been trying to get it on for a week :)

    And then I waited until she used it all day to tell her it was on.

    It's the only screen protector I've felt that was like glass. Very clear also. Just as difficult as any other dry application screen protector - I put it on right the second try. Every purchase should come with two.

    Anyone who has followed me here knows I HATE screen protectors. I've bought the most expensive and the experience was terrible. I like the feel of glass.

    I have people who represent me in China here in the U.S. and they told me they had the best screen protector ever. I said "send them to me".

    They were the dry application style. The first one I ruined and the second one went on easily. I was very shocked that it did feel like glass and you couldn't even notice it was on.

    So I've asked for Galaxy Nexus samples to try next. I won't sell a screen protector unless I would use it. If they are as good as the IPhone one's I'll include one in all of my cases and sell two separately.

    LOL don't sit on the edge, it could be a few weeks before I get the Galaxy Nexus one. I've used both IPhone samples all I have left is an IPhone 3 sample that isn't that high of quality.
