    Ha, I hope you're right because I have one more and am going to apply it. I mean it didn't touch anything and it's all over.

    i suggest getting something like scotch tape and make it into a wheel, put two fingers in it, and run it across your screen and the sticky side of the screen protector, removes all the bad stuff

    Noticed same on my X... the screen protectors seem like different material compared to the Droid ones that I got from VZW last year.

    Tried 2 out of the 3 in the pack all look the same as described by OP


    Will probably just take it off for now

    You must not have cleaned the screen correctly

    I agree... I got the 3 pack from VZW and they suck... I like anti glare, but they make the screen look like it is misted with water and all pixelated. (and I have put MANY screen protectors on...the screen was spotless, dustfree, smudge free etc)

    Funny thing is the guy in the store put the first one on... I thought it looked great... then today I was looking at my wifes X (she got one the day after me) and her screen looked like crap... that's when I realized that the one the guy must have peeled off Step 2, the actual screen protector must have went with it and he didn't notice.

    So I'll be looking elsewhere, because these ones suck on anything with a white or light background.

    I'd also like to know they they think it's only necessary to cover a portion of the glass...why not make it thing cover the entire screen. =/

    Yes. I see it too. And it is bad. I removed the one installed by the verizon rep because I hated it, and then I later installed a 2nd. It really ruins the visibility.

    I joined this forum just to say I am experiencing the same problem.

    It ruins the clarity of the screen and leaves a pixelated effect making the screen useless. It also uses a thicker material for which I assume is the non-existant anti-glare.

    I was also somewhat annoyed that it actually didn't cover the whole phone.

    I would try to return but its not worth the hassle.

    If anyone knows a brand that protects the whole screen and makes the phone usable please pass the name along.

    The Verizon screen protectors are anti-glare...at least the one I had installed on my DX is. I'll keep that on there until I get one by Zagg. Something is better than nothing...

    It is. I just recently had the Verizon replaced with Zagg and the difference is like night and day.

    When/if you get it - please pay attention to the instructions or listen to the person that puts it on....Give it 24 hours to clear up on it's own - it will.

    I had the full body put on - did not like it at all, and I removed it. I kept the screen protector itself, just removed the rest of it and there was no sticky residue.

    Same Propblem with Screen Protector

    I have the same problem with the screen protectors for Droid 2, however my daughter has a Droid and I tried one of her screen protectors and it is perfect. The screen protectors for Droid 2 makes your screen act weird also, Verizon on their website tells you about it, but when yo go into the store they don't say anything.:icon_evil:

    This is the notice on Verizons website:
    Touch Screen Settings - Motorola Droid 2 (A955)
    The Motorola Droid 2 (A955) uses capacitive multi-touch technology. Screen calibration is not supported at this time.
    The capacitive touch screen requires your skin to touch the screen. If you are using a screen protector your screen may not work as designed.



    So try the protectors for Droid , PART# MOTA8553PKSP. You don't have a problem with the screen either and its cheaper $12.49 verses $15.99.

    Have a Good Day everyone.

    The Verizon anti glare ones are bad. SGP Steinheil are far superior. Challenging to apply without trapping dust though.

    I've used the Verizon screen protectors before.. they are better than the cheep ones.. my all time fav. screen protector is one I have now... LOVE IT

    ebay:XtremeGUARD Motorola DROID X MB810 Screen Protector

    $2.49 free shipping

    you have to dampen the X screen before you install it.. & takes overnight to dry... but it is great (IMO)

    Dunno guys....I have the anti-glare Verizon Screen Guard on my new X and the screen looks perfect to me. I appreciate the anti-glare. Maybe they improved the product?
