    My Seventh Zagg InvisibleShield, September 28, 2012
    By 

    Amazon Verified Buy(What’s this?)
    This review is from: ZAGG invisibleSHIELD for Apple iPhone 5 – Case Friendly Screen (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I have bought Zagg InvisibleShield screen protectors for seven devices: two iPhone 3’s, two Droid Incredibles, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and now iPhone 5. I was a small hesitant to buy this after reading the prior reviews, so I thought I should post a few clarifications:

    - Numerous other reviewers need a bit of a refresher on the metric system. They disorder that this leaves a “1 centimeter” gap between the edge of the bodyguard and the edge of the screen. Ummm, it’s really about 1 millimeter. In other words, it is a “case friendly” screen bodyguard, exactly as advertised. The 1 mm gap prevents suitcases and bumpers from causing the edge to peel up.

    - The method of applying the screen bodyguard is uncommon from any other that I have tried. (But to be honest, I haven’t tried any other screen bodyguard since I learned these.) Unlike the others, the Zagg protectors are pliable, and they require the use of a wetting agent (built-in) to apply them. *You will really need to read the instructions in order for it to work.* It probably takes 2-3 minutes longer to apply, but the results are far better. One problem I always had with screen protectors was applying it off center or just out of position. These give you a chance to right the placement before it is stuck for excellent. (You can even use the built-in sqeegee to coax it a bit in the direction you need.) Also, with the typical stiff screen protectors, I always finished up with a speck of dust under the screen bodyguard that causes a very noticeable bubble. With the Zagg, either they just don’t attract as much dust all through attention, or the flexibility allows them to mold around dust specks so they are not noticeable. Unless you live in a Silicon Valley cleanroom, the Zagg will make it much simpler to get a sterile attention.

    - Every screen (and screen bodyguard) is a trade-off between glare and clarity. A glass screen(or a screen bodyguard with a glossy surface) will have terrible glare and will show fingerprints and smudges every time you touch your touchscreen. A typical glare-free screen bodyguard (including the Zagg screen protectors labeled as glare-free will result in a disappointing loss of clarity.) The “original” Zagg InvisibleShield models (such as this one) have a sort of “orange peel” texture that, for me, strikes the perfect balance. Somehow it eliminates most glare, doesn’t show fingerprints/smudges, and has nearly no loss in clarity. The result is that your screen will be more visible, under real-world conditions, than with any of the cheapie 3-per-pack screen protectors.

    - As an added bonus, the texture of the screen bodyguard some how makes using the touchscreen keyboard simpler. I’m not sure how, but it does.

    - It’s worth noting that the screen might be a small cloudy when you first apply the bodyguard. It takes a day or so for the wetting agent to dry and for it to ‘cure’ completely.

    - The function of a screen bodyguard is to absorb hurt, not to be invincible. I have used the Zagg warranty numerous era, including: 1) a screen bodyguard that clouded up due to exposure to some sort of chemical (sunscreen I reckon, but I was in Jamaica, so who’s to say), 2) a dimple that resulted from carrying my phone in the same pocket with a couple of page metal screws, and 3) an bodyguard that peeled off my wife’s iPhone 4S due to heat generated by extended use of a GPS navigation app and/or the lotion, hand sanitizer, etc. she uses. (The 4S seems to run hotter than other models, but then again, my wife works on the oncology floor of a hospital, so who knows what she is handling!) Unless the policy has changed, the Zagg warranty is not free; it costs $3-$4 each time. But, they ship you the replacement and an envelope to return the hurt one, so you can keep the ancient one in place until the new one arrives.

    The worst thing I can say about these screen protectors is that the Zagg logo is printed in very tiny letters in the lower right corner. You won’t see it on a black iPhone, but if you have a white iPhone, it may be an unwanted blemish on your perfect white phone!

    I have used the invisible shield for all my iPhones. I have owned every generation so far. I’m usually not a person to give out a review and some of the criticisms are not really unfounded. The original for me does not stick on the screen forever and I have gotten replacements which costs shipping, but they do protect the screen well and do not scratch. I have installed a bunch and it took a few to get excellent at installing them so I would not recommend just installing it without watching a you tube video and preparing.

    I reckon the problem with the other reviewers are complaining about with it life too small will realize that is the case friendly version of it which is supposed to be smaller. Since iPhone 5 suitcases have not really come out yet, you will soon realize that you do need it smaller. Tight suitcases that rim around the screen may not accommodate a full screen bodyguard since it does add some thickness. Zagg does have the full screen bodyguard non-case friendly version if you do not plot on using a case which better covers most of the screen. They offer an HD version which is supposed to have near glass clarity and smoothness. I probably won’t get the original material again because of the slight yellow clarity issue.

    I am using the competitor iShieldz for my 4s which is really excellent and probably comparable to their HD version. It uses an alcohol like based solution which dries much quicker but still requires some skill installing. But they have a version of it with an auto aligning applicator which is fantastic if you haven’t the skills to do it on your own. It is also a small cheaper.

    It is still a excellent product, but I would never get the original version again. I reckon the HD version would be more to what people want. They have an Extreme version which is supposed to be even tougher. If you want to see the product and are not inclined to install it in your own, some malls have kiosks who install them for you. Check it out there before you buy.

    One Huge Guess Before Offical Release, October 1, 2012

    This review is from: ZAGG invisibleSHIELD for Apple iPhone 5 – Case Friendly Screen (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I’m rather disappointed with the Zagg InvisibleShield for the iPhone 5. I bought the case-friendly screen bodyguard, and I had no issues with the wet attention process. You should be very precise not to allow any liquids to enter the exposed home button while installing the bodyguard. My girlfriend’s home button stopped working after installing her screen bodyguard, and we both agree this was the cause. After installing the bodyguard, I left my phone powered off for 12 hours while sealed in a zip-lock back with rice. This may be a small overkill; but, I wanted to dodge any possible water hurt by powering my phone on with water inside of my device. In addition, I believe it helped speed up the process to remove any micro-bubbles under the bodyguard after the installation!

    I had one major issue with this bodyguard, which is why I rated it only 2 stars. I centered my bodyguard perfectly around the home button; but, there is more exposed screen space on the right side of my phone. I have contacted Zagg regarding this issue, and I believe that I may have bought a defect.

    One other concern that I had was the cut-out at the top of the bodyguard. At first, I assumed that Zagg guessed at where the camera lens would be prior to the official Apple announcement. After further investigation, I realized that the proximity sensor was still located to the left of the earpiece speaker. I can see how the cut-out is necessary, but I would like for there to have been a better solution than to remove the whole top center of the bodyguard. I have already noticed Zagg has started to change their stock image of their iPhone 5 screens to have a uncommon cut-out towards the top to minimize exposure. I image that these new cut-outs will ship a small time in October and the packaging will be labeled iPhone 5 rather than The New iPhone.

    All in all, I am pleased with my buy but plot to abuse Zagg’s lifetime warranty if an updated cut-out is released.

    10/08/12 UPDATE: Zagg has confirmed that the exposed screen space on the right side of my phone indicates my bodyguard is defective. They have sent me a replacement screen bodyguard (which I have yet to hear). But, they required that they place a $20 pending charge on my credit card until they hear the defective cover, which I can return in a standard envelope.
