    There is only one that feels just like the glass and that's DBA Cases "Just Like Glass" protectors. It's 20% smoother than the glass.

    Screen Protectors l Mobile Accessories l Samsung Galaxy S3 Cases

    People have been asking about the size so I took a picture... If you don't like the feeling I'll give you a refund.

    Personally, not too much of a fan of the size. I really don't like how it is cut short from the top, when most other screen protectors I've tried cover the whole screen.

    Also, it loves finger oils. Constantly having to clean my screen protector, because it sometimes decreases clarity. It also has a gasoline in water type appearance when looked at in certain light angles.

    However, the feel is the best I've tried. 2nd to none in that category. It is still not the best due to the other concerns listed above. That being said, I do still use it and it is quite nice overall.

    We modified the Galaxy S3 cut to a full cut due to demand.

    For the Galaxy Nexus I can order full cuts I just don't recommend it. The size you see above looks great and gives you what protection you really need.

    It does pick up finger oils. I wipe it off once or twice a day - there is no way around it. The gasoline in water appearance is what we call the rainbow effect. You only will see it with the device off or under florescent lighting. If we were to remove that it would also remove the UV protection, the scratch resistance, and it would have a grainy feel.

    The advantages are a completely clear screen, feels like the glass, a hard protector, impact proof, and even proof against being stained or marked. I tested it with a sharpie which is pretty dumb but it did come off.

    The two main things that attract me personally is how clear it is and the feel. Then the impact resistance. The other things I generally don't worry about.

    Scott

    I would most likely buy one if the galaxy nexus version had the full cut available. I know it's kinda picky, but I feel like it looks much more natural with the full cut. Lucky S3 owners! Flip covers and now full cut just like glass screen protectors. :biggrin:

    I can easily get the full cut for you if you want.

    Email me at scott@dbacases.com if you are interested.

    May be interested in a full cut myself. Had the steinheil on mine which is a full cut and never had any issue with peeling or anything.

    The difference is ours feels like glass, not plastic. I've tried the Steinheil and threw it out.

    Would you put a guarantee on that? :p


    My Nexus 7 is naked right now and I love the smoothness of it. Highly considering of ripping off the protector on my phone

    Our Nexus 7 protector is full coverage and feels completely like glass. It will also protect the glass from impact.

    I'll guarantee ours feels like glass but not that you like it better.
