Does what it says and then some!
on February 26, 2013
This product does what it aims to: protects the huge screen on my 5 inch Samsung Galaxy Player.
I bought this product with my player, and received it a few days after receiving the player. I hate scratched screens, so I hardly even touched my player during that time for fear of ruining it forever. When it arrived, I cleaned the screen thoroughly using first a cleaning agent applied to a very soft cloth, and then several times over with the included microfiber cloth. I applied the protector using the "hinge method", which I highly recommend. A quick google or youtube search should bring up instructions or a video showing how to do it.
After applying it, I covered the squeegee card with the microfiber cloth and used that to push all the bubbles out, so as not to scratch the new screen protector.
So how does it perform? The other night after a late shift at work, I took my metal watch off and tossed it onto my bed in the dark. I heard an impact, switched on the light, and saw that my watch had landed on my screen and left a mark. To me, it looked like a chip through the protector and onto the screen, ruining my device's screen forever. Moments ago, I got up the courage to check the screen underneath. I lifted the protector with a piece of tape, and the screen was still in mint, unscratched, unchipped condition!
As to what the product advertises it will do, cut glare, no fingerprints, safe screen underneath, it does the last one the best in my experience. While there is no glare, it is still not very usable outside on a bright day. Fingerprints are not nearly as bad as on the naked screen, but still present after heavy usage or if I don't wash my hands before use. My screen isn't scratched or chipped even after I accidentally hit it with a hard metal object, so that's why it gets 5 stars.
