    Yes, the Steinheils are much easier to apply. No "solution" is needed. I like it cuz it took all of 1 min to get it on, and no wait time to freaking dry! I hate getting anything wet close to my phone, probably will never use anything else since this is sooo easy.

    Any of the shields that require wetting them are quite difficult if you're not use to applying them. For most everyday users this isn't something they do on a regular basis. Just my opinion, Steinheils are way easier.

    1 clean everything
    2 line it up to make sure it's good
    3 peel the adhesive protector down half way
    4 apply squeegee out any bubbles on first half
    5 pull the rest of the backing off and squeegee more

    All done and no waiting for it to dry

    I always hated waiting for the skins to dry. :)

    Call me an idiot or impatient, which I'm neither, but just tried installing and got one speck of dust and ruined it. By the time I realized it was dust, I had to peel it back which ruined that edge of the protector. Same thing happened to the second screen.

    Waste of money. Guess I should invest in a clean room.

    Yeah, i have 4 little pieces of lint on mine in the upper right hand corner. It bugs me a little but I really should have gone into the bath room and turned of the shower to pull out all the dust and lint in the air. I was impatient. :( You just have to be careful and clean everything around you. Same thing will happen if you use the ones with solution if you work in a dusty area unfortunately. I'll just get a replacement eventually. :)

    i bought a few extra because i know i'm pretty particular about such things and wouldn't get it exactly right on the first try. i actually trashed three of them before i got the fourth one on perfect. the first or second try would have been good enough for most folks, but like i said, i'm pretty particular, everything has to be centered and aligned just right or i get a little crazy.

    as far as dust goes, i didn't try the shower thing, what i did was place the phone on a table by a window (so i could see a strong reflection of the window on the screen). this let me carefully and easily inspect the surface for any dust during application (and i did find a few pieces during my several attempts).

    i am very happy with this protector (heard about it first in these forums), especially since it covers 99% of the glass unlike the one offered by Verizon. i will definitely use Steinheil's on all my smartphones going forward.

    Great Covers

    I put mine on two days ago, Looks great and when compaired to the one that Verizon sells you, what a great improvement. Also these covers protect the entire front of the phone, not just the screen area

    That is up for debate, I go to the beach a lot and sand can scratch the screen. I was constantly worried about scratching this screen before I got the protector, at least now I don't have to be paranoid about it.

    To spend 15 bucks as insurance why even take the risk?

    I just bought a couple different ones from eBay after noticing a very very tiny scratch in my screen. There is no way I will be able to tell with the screen on, but when it's off I can see it. I was hoping that I wouldn't need a screen protector. But if I have a small scratch, I could just as easily get a big scratch.

    I am very careful with my phone as well. I should be able to keep it in my pocket without scratching it... guess not.
