I hate screen protectors, but they're sort of a necessary evil if you hope to actually carry this kind of phone around with you. Sure, if you have a purse with you at all times, you can buy a better case and actually enjoy the full clarity of your screen, but you can't exactly put a 1" thick case in your jeans pocket.

Okay, so these will work. They will protect your phone. And they're cheap. But the pros end there. The picture clarity just won't be quite as crisp with these screen covers. To be fair, I don't know if there's a screen cover that won't do this. But in the 5-pack I received, not one of them was free from little scratches or blemishes. And that's a huge negative. While I don't expect the clarity to match the uncovered screen, I do expect screen covers that don't look like they've already been in someone's pocket for a month of use.

I ordered this to protect the Samsung Nexus S. It fits PERFECT, there was no cutting necessary. The first time I put it on I had a lot of air bubbles, even though I cleaned the phone with the cloth that came with it. I tried again with a different approach. As I was laying the screen protector down on the phone, I smoothed it out with a credit card. Don't do the same thing I did, put the protector on first and try to smooth it out later. You'll just frustrate yourself.

There were minimal air bubbles when I used the credit card to smooth over the protector as I applied it. The only ones I can see are around the sides. My OCD kicked in and I used my fingernail to actually push the remaining air bubbles out. If you have the time and care to do so, it works with just a little pressure of your nail. The screen protector didn't get scratched or anything, it works perfectly. Most of the time, I don't notice it's there. It's not going to be perfect, but at least there's no air bubbles in the middle of the phone. A couple days have passed since I put it on and the air bubbles are slowly disappearing now on their own.

For the $1 or so that I spent on this item, I received 5 screen protectors and each of them came with a small cleaning cloth. I would defintely recommend this product for the price!

It was difficult to apply this screen protector that it will perfectly fit. Some bubbles at the edges (I just can't remove it at all). Strange line across the screen, but it's visible only when display is turned off. But this screen protector is cheap and it's better than no protector at all.

The price was right for these, so I tried them. I had no trouble applying the protector, but other reviewers mentioned getting a cleaning cloth with each protector, and these came with only one. It is a nice cloth, so as long as I don't lose it, I think it will continue to work for all 5 protectors. The little cardboard squeegee was not included with these, so I just used my fingernail. That seemed to get out almost all of the bubbles. The few tiny bubbles that remain are close to the edges and usually disappear on their own after a few days.

The only drawbacks I notice are:
1. The protector seems much thinner than previous protectors I have used for other devices. I think I may have to replace this one more often- time will tell.
2. The entire screen is not covered. The protector stops a little more than an eighth of an inch short at the top. The cutouts do fit well, but the protector doesn't extend all the way to the top. This may be due to the slight curve of the Nexus S screen.
3. The protector does not seem to be sticking at the very bottom, due to the curved screen. I couldn't move the protector up any higher on my phone, because the cutouts at the top wouldn't fit if I did. I think that once I get my new silicone cover on the phone the edges will probably be covered anyway. I just wonder if dust might get in and cause me to have to replace the protector more quickly.

I will probably look at other options when it comes time to buy again. I would like the protector to be just a bit thicker, and possibly cover more of the top of the screen.

Just noticed the picture on the listing shows a different protector than I received. The ones I received don't have a rounded top; the cutouts are open at the top. This is why my protectors don't reach all the way up. There must be a difference in sellers, or maybe the template was changed. I will definitely look for ones that extend the next time I buy.

First, adhesive screen protectors are a complete PITA to apply without getting dust under them, no matter how much you clean the phone first. That's not specific to this screen protector, rather to all of them that use adhesive.

They also seem to be just a touch smaller than the phone. However, the last protector I tried had an overhang; not having to trim it is nice. The silicone case I keep on my phone covers the parts that the screen protector does not cover.

Someone on a forum I'm on suggested using scotch tape to remove any dust/lint/etc that gets trapped under the screen. I'm OCD about having zero bubbles under it; the scotch tape trick removed every speck of dust, even specks that had stuck to the protector.

Since I have no bubbles under mine, and a silicone case on the phone, you can't even tell there's a screen protector on it unless you see the cutouts for the speaker and front camera.

It does smudge a little easier than the bare glass; I'd rather have to clean it a bit more often than deal with scratches.

Great price on 5 screen protectors. I read some previous poor reviews from people who were clearly putting the screen protector on wrong. Use the included screen cleaners to clean your screen very well. One small speck of dust and you'll have bubbles you can't get out. You have to peel off the first side, be careful not to touch the protector while placing it in place, work any bubbles out towards the edge, THEN peel of the second piece,and then again work out bubbles. I placed two on two phones flawlessly. They're good protectors, but the English instructions written by the Chinese leaves much to be desired. The actual screen protector is in the middle of the two pieces with stickers on them. The stickers don't need to be removed.

When first seeing this product for sale I was wondering if this was the same product that I have been looking for because the price was so low. When I received the product the packaging was supper great and not all torn. After opening the pakage I first saw that this was the same product I have been looking at in the stores for a much higher price, unbelievable. The protector was easy to install on my cell phone. The directions that were on the package was very easy to read and follow. They also explained evrything step by step. I recommend this to everyone that has this style of phone. Looks great as you cannot even tell it is on your screen. Now I do not have any fingerprints on my screen.

The screen protectors were easy to put on. Anyone who had problems putting them on has their own problems and it is not because of the screen protectors. The fit is great and it is easy to get all the bubbles out with a credit card. The screen still seems bright and clear and I can barely notice I have a screen protector on. The screen does seem to get dirtier than with just the plain screen (oil from fingers) but that is easily fixed with a clean cloth.

Overall for the price you can't beat these. Both my wife and I have the Nexus S 4G and application was easy. Now we have 3 extras in case something happens to one of first ones we put on. Would definitely recommend.

It may have just been my batch of screen-covers; however, though the tutorials were great the stickers on my screen covers, which are supposed to help with application, wouldn't come off in one piece and left a sticky residue on the screen cover (if you managed to get the sticker off without damaging the screen-cover... Needless to say, I didn't get one of them which the stickers came off for me... I applied it perfectly as the tutorial showed, but those stickers were a deal breaker.

If you think you'll have better luck, for $1, give it a try.

Regards,
-David

When I ordered my Nexus I also included the protective shield film covers. When I got those covers they were general covers so I had to measure and cut the film to fit my phone. I couldn't seem to get those pesky air bubbles out either. So I came to amazon and I found these. These are great!! I just pull them out the package, pull the tab, line it up and presto. 90 seconds later my phone is covered perfectly. No scissors needed. Just wham, bam and thank you ma'am. My phone looks great!! Not to mention these were much cheaper than the original ones I purchased.
