    FUD.

    The protector protects 100 percent of the screen you can use. It's highly unlikely any other protector marketed for the Droid X will be a different size.

    It's a screen protector, not a glass protector.

    that looks like a screen protector a retailer would sell not a corporate location

    That's what I did. Rather have something on it until the good one comes.

    haha, i just kept the original out of box screen on it once i saw those little baby craps that verizon sold me. I'm bringing them back. I just cut the flap off the box protector for now and scraped all the white off of it.

    The screen = entire glass! Not what they want to protect. I dont want 20% of my glass scratched up and the rest crystal clear, i want a product that does its job!

    Verizon screen protectors are notoriously crappy. Check out Steinheil....

    Is it safe to not put a screen protector on the X? The glass feels so much better than the screen protectors do, but I'm afraid of getting it all jacked up. Anyone had their glass screen scratched before? I had a Voyager and the screen was scratched soooo bad, but I know it is a different kind of screen on the X. I will be keeping it in my pocket with nothing else. I know I had a phone a long time ago that got sand or something behind the screen to the point I couldn't even see the screen anymore, but that was a very long time ago.

    There are 3 reasons to get that screen protector, i for one have it aswell.
    Things the DroidX Verizon screen protectors protect
    1) Our fingers all have dirt/oils/other crap all over them that will make ANY touch screen over time harder to use
    2) Scratches of course
    3) They are also ANTI-Glare for when you take them outside on a sunny day


    These screen protectors protects all of the usable space on your screen (there is a little bit of a black glass border that's not a screen but is glass)

    They are very easy to put on yourself, and are very unnoticeable, they also arent such finger print magnets. They are smooth, and the droid reacts well with them..

    Why would you not want to protect that black area of glass? Its part of the glass and I wouldn't want it scratched. The phone is well over $500, take care of the entire thing. Not just the part you touch!

    Can anyone tell me a screen protector that covers 100% of the glass.
    I'm looking for a protector that covers from border to border, 100%
    I don't want a 1-1.5mm strip at the top or bottom.

    as has been said before, this phone isn't cheap and I don't want scratches on any part of the glass, even if it's not the screen..

    I bought the zagg invisible shiled and when i lined it up. I could see that it wasn't going to cover 100%
    I watched a you tube review of the SPG steinheil and the guy said "border to border"
    but then at the end he says, you'll end up with a little blank strip/space at the bottom

    that's not border to border, it's not 100% coverage.

    anyone know of one that does cover 100%?

    Thanks

    I have the Steinheil crystal installed. It fully covers the glass portion of the DX's screen. The protector is only fractionally smaller that then glass to ensure it adheres correctly.....

    Once again.... Ebay

    Got 5 for 99 cents.

    I've learned that the best screen protectors are the cheap ones. All the other special screen protectors and body shields etc are crap. Waste of money and give it that rubbery feel where your finger doesn't glide smoothly on the glass.

    As far as I'm concerned it covers it completely. I started the install from the top so there is a tiny sliver of space which I deliberatly left at the bottom so as not to hit up against the hard keys. I agree that it needs to be slightly smaller or it would be impposible to install. I don't see how the little unprotected gap... less than a milimeter could sustain any damage.

    My hard case covers the sides so it looks very neat and you really would not know I have a screen protector installed.

    Oh and the touch response is perfect... possibly more to my liking actually.
