This is now my second set of this screen protector over the last 2 years as like anything else they do wear out, easy to remove with no residue though.
Highly recommended, for me the best screen protectors for the iphone 4.
This problem could be eliminated were a sticky piece of paper provided to dab the screen with immediately prior to applying the Power shield cover - as provided by some other shield providers.
However these are still the best for me.
Definitely recommend. One small point is that I thought I was getting 2 front films, but received 1 front and 1 back. This was good in the end as I use an apple bumper, but some of you may find this annoying if you have a full back case.
All went perfectly and within 5 mins my iPhone is Crystal Film-ed. No air bubbles, no dust specks, no orange peel effect. The Retina display is allowed to shine as it should.
The film feels a little less slippy than the bare screen but not so much it hinders using the phone. I've been playing Angry Birds and Lego Harry Potter without any problems.
This Product gets my thumbs up so far. Only time will tell how well it actually protects the screen.
Team up with a vapor pro case and you have a head turning very smart phone!
Also as usual superb delivery service from MoblieFun!!
•They are not a wet application, and are easy to fit, if you make a mistake whilst applying you can take it off and start again without losing any adhesive effectiveness( I took my front one off 3 times in order to get it fitting perfectly).
•They look amazing no orange peel effect,dimming or losing
the clarity of the screen like the Zagg, these protectors look and feel like you don't have a protector on your phone, my work colleague actually said to me why don't you have a screen protector on your phone!
•They seem hard wearing and clean very easily with a microfiber cloth, will have to monitor durability as only been using these for a few weeks.
•don't bubble up whilst using my Morphie juice air or Apple bumper will have to try another case that I have just to be sure.
•The price is a little bit expensive but I'm 100% happy with this purchase and would buy these again no questions asked.
To summerize if you have an iPhone 4/4S, what are you waiting for order these straight away, don't waste your money like I did on the cheaper protectors or Zagg's, order these!
The delivery and service from mobile fun should also be commended as they provide a fast prompt service with no hassles!
With this product you get to see the Apple boost - very impressive.
A tip to fitting the film. Switch off the mobile for at least fifteen minutes as this means the temperature of the screen cools down to the same temperature of the film. It reduces air bubbles as apparently hot and cold surfaces create them.
I also used a lenspen I use for my camera to ensure the surface was dust free and clean before applying.
You will need to clean the film does show grease marks.
4 stars only becuase if the grease marks otherwise a definate 5
Be warned there are no instructions for putting the crystal film on other than a small picture guide with japanese characters (so you're fine if you read Japanese!!). Otherwise I followed some advice I found on here and used an e-cloth to remove all dust specks and lint before sticking the surface on. It's not easy to get it completely dust free and you need a steady hand to apply it so the bits match up but other than that it's fantastic and I thoroughly recommend!
This and the quite hefty price tag are the only reasons I dropped a star and gave it 4 not 5 stars...
Very easy to fit and incredibly clear. You can't even notice it's there, at least on the white version of the iPhone 4S.
It doesn't grip on to my finger any more than the screen itself does and it doesn't discolor the screen in any way.
If there was a down side, it's that it's not entirely finger print resistant. It has a bit of leeway compared to the screen itself but not entirely. But that's not a huge biggy at all.
Overall a great screen protector and one that I actually like! Woop!
Use a cloth to push out any air bubbles and you should have a perfect finish. Most ppl can't even tell I have film on the phone!
I have tried a few other brands, sometimes cheaper, but always less effective in terms of fitting, continuous clean adhesion to the phone and long term scratch, dirt and knock protection.
Nothing compares. Money well spent.
Why order again? Well, here's the catch. This film is only easy to apply if you slightly adapt the process of applying it, as the kit that comes with this product isn't great. I used the little cleaning cloth last time round, but was still left with TINY specks of dust that left bubbles when the film was applied. Didn't look great.
So, if you're considering this product, I'd recommend picking up an e-cloth (you'll get this in any supermarket, where you pick up cleaning products). It's probably another £3-£5, but worth it as the e-cloth attracts every and any speck of dust. (And it's a great product if you're cleaning stainless steel in your kitchen - so useful afterwards too!)
Lay phone on cloth, and use that and only that to clean the surface of the phone. Apply film as directed, carefully - obvious really, but keep fingers away from the edges as this stuff picks up dust like you wouldn't believe - and once applied, wrap cloth over phone and use that to press the film down firmly and get rid of any air bubbles. It's the easiest way I've found to get a perfect finish - unlike last time round, when I made a hash of it!
Compared to the invisible shield this film is infinitely superior in every aspect. So good I got one for my iPad.
The quality is superb and works great with the Retina Display (no visual distortion or change to touch responsiveness). They are also super-tough; I bought this set as a replacement after I accidentally chucked my phone at a wine glass. Some shards were embedded in the protector, but the screen underneath was fine.
Also, make sure you get this set which includes 2 front and 1 back film. Some others only have 1 front or don't include the back.
The crystal ones are much clearer but do show finger prints & screen smears a lot more.
The instructions are in Japanese but thats not a problem.
Very simple to fit, no air bubbles.
In short expensive but worth it just a shame you have to choose between clarity & no finger prints.
Item arrived as described with 2 front screens and 1 rear plus a microfibre cloth. However, the cloth is of poor quality and left pieces of microfibre on my screen which ruined my first attempt. In my purchase I got MobileFun's own cloth for free and used this for the rest of the application. The quality is fantastic and actually left a clean and clear body to apply the films too.
I have no issues with the application as it is the same as the cheaper alternatives. What I was hoping for though was that the film would reach from edge to edge which would have justified the price and the statement that is cut to fit. However, like all films there is about a small area all around the phone which is not covered and therefore gives away that you have a film on.
I had considered buying a bumper for the phone too but had decided that I wanted to keep the silver edge on show. Now I am thinking again as only with a bumper will the film edges be covered.
In terms of clarity yes it is spot on and cannot be faulted. However, for the cost I was expecting a film that would only be seen by a 'beady eye' but sadly this is not the case. If I had known this I would not have made the purchase and would have gone for a cheaper alternative like I have with my previous phones as in my opinion there really is little difference apart from the name on the packaging.
I have given it 2 stars. For the price I expected a perfect fit which is not the case but the film is clear and easy to apply just not with the cloth provided.
They applied easily enough, no bubbles and nice and clear. The edges are a bit sharp so you always feel like the edge is going to 'pick up', but so far they've stayed put.
The big disapointment is that after only a couple of weeks use there are a number of scratches and dull areas on both the front and the back. The only thing i keep in the same pocket as the phone is my keyless-entry car card which is made of smooth softish plastic. Its rather annoying that a £30 screen protector isnt hard enough to resist this kind of wear.
I should have realised when it came with 2 front protectors in the pack they wouldnt last long.
So in summary, ok
They are very easy to install as well.
The screen looks as good as before I put it on and while I can't comment on the longevity of the films yet, currently I would say they are worth the extra money.
But both recommended.
Only gripe is some of the edges of my front protector (havent needed the spare yet) are rough, but both front and back look so invisible - and they also give the back some welcome extra grip when setting it down on non-flat surfaces.
They are a bit on the expensive side for my liking (more than a case), but they are the best at what they do.
You pay for what you get. This one has a daft price for a couple of bits of film, but I'd buy it every time.
Compared to other screen protectors that friends have used, I was very impressed, although they are pricey.
These really are worth every penny
1. Instructions are in Japanese.
2. It does not include the pre-installation film that the USA version does that I find essential and main reason I pay more for Power Support product.
The pre installation film I feel is essential if you do not want to waste a screen protector doing the job of the pre-installation film, since there are always tiny bits of dust that even after cleaning are still on the iPhone screen and end up under the film as bumps of dirt that are potentially scratching the screen once forced in such close contact with the glass with the film. Which defeats the whole purpose of buying the screen protectors.
On the Japanese site using Google translate it seems to say remove any excess glue. Since the USA product uses static to attach to the screen this did not give me any confidence that the product was the same as the USA product so I returned them. I will wait for the USA product to make it to UK shores.
I find the pre installation film essential and one of the reasons worth paying extra for Power Support products. So will wait till USA product I expected to receive arrives in Apple stores.
I believe the fact that the products are different from USA product usually found in Apple Stores and fact that product is sourced in Japan should be stated explicitly on site.
