Pros Nice idea good film
Cons Do not expect to install this product and have a good result. Film is very tacky and sticks to itself and device readily. If you try to remove it it will become useless. If you have any problems like bubbling Zagg will not replace it
Summary Small pieces and extreme tacky adhesive makes good results difficult to achieve. I have worked with many films and stick on lettering and have never had as much trouble as with this product. Warranty does not apply if you can't install it or have bubbles under skin. Removing the skin will stretch and destroy it. Results were marginal regarding looks and final smoothness without bubbles is almost impossible to achieve. I bought this product before reading reviews as it looks great on-line but achieving the expected results is nearly impossible without much work and difficulty, Not worth the cost.
Pros It will protect your phone if you are worried about scratches. Mall Kiosk purchases are recommended since they guarantee there work. Much better clearness than other generic brands when properly applied. Now read my con's I am being gentle.
Cons Does not protect from drops so ultimately having a case is necessary. I have had them reapply 3 x and finally realized these bubble up when a case is being used. They easily pinch up. Not as easy as it looks to apply.
Summary I have an Iphone 4. Objective with original purchase of the invicible shield was to give added protection while using my case. Well what I got with this was added protection but for the extra $20 the bubbling up and the edges peeling off of screen because of contact from case is a huge negative. When the case is not used it looks beautiful, once the case is on it looks as ugly and as cheap as the inexpensive products. My son's phone 2x reapplied with new screen protector, my phone also. End result not worth the money. I'm staring at my phone as I'm writing edge of phone completely around is has air pockets and lifting. This was redone 3 days ago. Waited 24 hours as recomended put on my Apple case, in a matter of a few minutes it started peeling. Good luck and I will say it now. I told you so but you didn't listen . Great job stimulating the economy.
Pros -You can barely see it
-Really does work--I dropped my iPhone on tar after partying one night. it skidded down the road and was still perfectly fine.
Cons a bit tricky to put on if you don't know what you're doing but you can figure it out.
Summary bottom line is this is a MUST for smartphones, ipads, cameras or any other electronic that is fragile. it works amazing and is affordable and durable.

Pros Self Healing,
Cons NONE that I can see
Summary The Best ones out there. Have tried many others and once they get a scratch in the protective skin it stays there. The Zagg is self healing. Have had it on three phones and none of them show any scratches. I'm a mechanic and the abuse that I give a phone is unreal and the Zagg protective skins are the only ones that I will ever use.By the way all screens take a little grey matter to install, They just don't throw themselves on the phone, The Zagg is no different, Just takes a little patience to put it on. Once its there it stays

"Great product"on by GMCslizz
Pros Great protection. Once on, it stays on. Relatively easy to install (if you take the time), or have someone at a Zagg cart do it for you. Lifetime warranty is awesome. Offer two varieties now (regular and HD), the latter of which does not dimple.
Cons It is not a case (which sounds ridiculous to say, but it seems some people on here think it will protect the phone from falls). The regular one may dimple, creating a wave pattern, and has a rubbery texture (however, this aids in gripping the phone).
Summary Invisible Shields are probably the best screen protectors around, and are available for a wide range of products. They offer great protection (e.g. Somehow my phone got a large gouge through the front screen, but luckily only my Invisible Shield was damaged, which was promptly replaced via the warranty).
If you take the time to install it properly, they seldom peel off or get bubbling (at least in my experience). Make sure to work in a dust free environment, wash your phone/gadget (with appropriate solution and microfiber cloth) and hands first. When installing it, don't be afraid to use too much applying solution, as this will be squeegeed out later, taking dust and air bubbles with it. Also make sure to wet your fingertips with the solution to prevent fingertips. Alternatively, get someone at a Zagg cart to do it for you (often found outside Apple stores in malls). Doing it properly will avoid later peeling around the edges as well, by ensuring that the entire shield adheres to the phone/gadget. Lastly, if the gadget is large (e.g. an iPad), it may help to have one person apply the application solution, while the other holds the shield to prevent it from sticking to itself.
However, this is not a case for your gadget. That is, it will not protect against falls, throws, bumps, etc., save for preventing scratches. Make sure to invest in a good case as well. Some cases are not compatible with the Invisible Shield (or any screen protector for that matter), such as ones which need to be tightly pulled over the gadget (and can thus cause the protector to peel away). Bumper-style cases for brick/slab style phones are a good option, especially ones that assemble in two pieces and ones that overlap with the screen protector (preventing peeling back around the edges).
I have used Invisible Shields for most/all of my gadgets with screens (or shiny parts) and have never had a problem with them. I recently purchased the Invisible Shield HD for my phone and love the product. The Invisible Shield HD has the same "glassy" texture as the phone itself, rather than the rubbery texture that the regular Invisible Shield has. This does give less grip to the phone though, which is dangerous, especially if you are using the Invisible Shield as a case.
Thanks for your submission!
