    I finally had it with my Zagg invisible shield and removed it. Now I'm debating wether to wait for the Otterbox Defender with a built in screen protector or to get a SGP Steinheil screen protector.
    I would go ahead and buy a Steinheil but it would be my luck that the Defender would get released and i would have to remove it.
    I have read a couple of reviews of other devices with the defender case that they had to remove there full body zagg invisible shield including the screen protector.
    So i have a couple of questions.
    1. Should i buy the Steinheil regardless?
    2. Do you think the screen protector will be fine with the Defender case?
    3. Do you think my phone will be fine with out a screen protector until the Defender is here? I'm outside alot, and the wait for the defender might be a while.

    im interested in this info as well... Zagg doesn't really do it for me... I mean it looked good online and sounded good in my head, but at the end of the day "installation" was tedious and and the outcome, less than worth it. I'm looking for other options as well

    I had a Zagg invisishield on my iPhone. It worked extremely well. The key to installation is to use most if not all of the liquid that is sprayed onto the invisishield.

    I'm not sure what happened with mine. It was very nice for a long time but then it started getting like little bubbles in it. It just kept getting worse. I'm wondering if cleaning it with rubbing alcohol would cause it?

    Not sure. Contact Zagg. They offer a lifetime warranty and will replace for you.

    I just removed the Zagg Invisishield from my D2, nothing wrong with it at all. I was completely happy with it and install was kind of a pain but after installing several of them it was nothing I couldn't handle. I removed it and replaced it with a Steinheil (fingerprint-less) protector, after hearing about it i thought I would give it a shot. So far its not bad.........clean screen most of the time but had to raise the brightness up to 50% from 35% to see it easily because the protector is sorta blurry.

    They will replace it for you, they have a warranty. Just go to the site and get a replacement, you pay for shipping only and have 60 days to return the old one. If you don't return the old shield they will charge you full price on that replacement.

    Ask me how I know......:)

    Ya I really like there warranty replacement policies but the product kept peeling on me to a point I am using a different screen protector on my X...

    @barski. Just be carefull I purchased one that I did not use and they would not return it except for warranty replacment even though it was unopened.

    Well i received my replacement and just decided to put it on tonight. Overall I'm pretty impressed compared to before. The screen protector doesn't feel very rubbery at all, and its also not has thick, therefore it should not peal up as easy. So good job goes out to Zagg.

    I used the Zagg on my Backflip and was impressed with protection and application. The Steinheil Ultra-Clear I put on my Droid X is in a different class. It is smoother, much clearer, and was easy to install, using the steamy bathroom technique.

    I have had my X for several months without a screen protector on it and the screen is still flawless. I do not see a need to purchase a bunch of stuff to stick on the screen as these screens are built pretty tough and are meant to be touched without a screen protector on it. Unless you are in an environment that lends itself to dirty conditions where you are afraid that your screen will get scratched, I would wait for the Defender. But this is just my opinion.

    ZAGG has been great for me. I actually use it by itself until Otterbox gets it together. Installation wasn't too tricky for me. Like mwhartman said, use all the install spray and you can move it around and place it like window tint.

    The texture was easy to get use to and all air bubbles went away after a few days. Can't even tell it's there now.

    Im very happy with my replacement from zagg. Im not sure what they did but its 150% better than before
    A screen guard is a must for me. Im outside alot and I can assure you my sceen would be scratch by now if I didn't use a screen protector. Bad news is my mic died on my Droid x so im not sure what im going to do...I have a 40% off cupon for zagg, might have to put it use.

    The issue with the InvisiShield is knowing how to properly install it. I installed my own and screwed it up. I let the guy at a Zagg mall stand do the install and it has been flawless. Sure, I had to pay him to do it, but there is a reason his went on flawless and mine was crapt.

    Just peel it off and request a replacement one. They send more fluid with the new one, so you don't have to worry about that....

    Maybe I should ask them if the could replace mine as my fingernails indenteded the pos and looks like crap due to its uneven texture. I had to reapply the dammed thing three times and also feels tacky to the touch
