There are a few different options when it comes to protecting your screen, but which one is right for you? This guide will explain the differences between the different types and help you to make the right decision when choosing an iPhone 3G / 3G S screen protector.
The InvisibleSHIELD is more than just a screen protector. Not only does it cover the front screen of the iPhone 3G and 3G S, it also includes the same tough protective film for the back of your iPhone. Installation takes a little bit longer than a normal screen protector, but the end result is well worth it. It covers almost all of your phone and will withstand the toughest of scrapes. The InvisibleSHIELD has a matte finish with a non slip feel to it. It is great at repelling fingerprints and reducing reflections and most importantly doesn’t affect the sensitivity of the touch screen. As the InvisibleShield doesn’t add any extra bulk to the iPhone, you can use in in conjuction with most Cases & Skins.
Classic Screen Protectors
If you are after a screen protector that is more like the one that will have been on the phone when you opened the box, then there are three to choose from – Martin Fields, MFX or a Mirrored Screen Protector.
Martin Fields are an exceptionally high quality screen protector, that fit to your phone quickly and easily. They are just as easy to remove leave no residue behind and can be cleaned and re-used . They are ultra thin and don’t interfere with using the touchscreen on your iPhone.
MFX Screen Protectors are very similar to the Martin Fields. They come with a fitting card to help prevent air bubbles and a screen cleaning cloth.
These are the same as the MFX protectors, but have a mirrored finish that will turn the screen of your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3G S into a mirror when the screen is not lit. As soon as the screen lights up, the mirror becomes transparent and you can use your phone as normal.
Due to the design of this type of Screen Protector, you may find it beneficial to use them in conjunction with an iPhone skin as this will help protect the edges and prevent them from peeling/curling.
The other option that you have of course is a leather case. Now you might be thinking that a leather case won’t work for a touch screen phone, and with most other touch screen handsets you’d be right, but the Krusell Classic Leather case works brilliantly. It is also the only leather case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S that actually has a protective cover over the screen . The front of the case is a clear plastic that doesn’t affect the sensitivity of the touchscreen and there are cut outs for the volume controls, headphone, charger & camera. A removable belt clip is included too.
