5.0 out of 5 stars Works great. No need to buy expensive protector films., August 6, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: amFilm (TM) Premium Screen Protector Film Clear (Invisible) for Google Nexus 7 Tablet (2-Pack) (NOT for the newest Nexus 7) [in AM Retail Packing] (Personal Computers)
I am very much satisfied with this product.

While spending money on covers makes sense, depending on what you want from it (more money likely means better design and/or better protection), there's really no need to buy expensive protector films, since most films out there meet the minimal standard: no sticky residue, good fit, and clarity if it's the clear type. This product certainly meets those criteria.

And some advice:

1. The fit of this product is pretty tight, which means that there isn't much difference between the size of the film and the size of Nexus 7's surface. So, it is highly recommended that you google "tape hinge method protector film" if you aren't familiar with that trick. There's even a Youtube instruction: [...]

2. Like most products of this kind, the film is composed of three layers: the main film and two temporary ones on both sides of the main one. Once you successfully attached the film after removing the first temporary film and getting rid of most of the bubbles, MAKE SURE THAT YOU GIVE SOME PRESSURE ON THE CORNER WHERE THE HANDLE FOR THE SECOND FILM IS AND START PULLING UP THE SECOND ONE VERY CAREFULLY, SO THAT THE MAIN FILM IS NOT LIFTED ALONG WITH THE TEMPORARY FILM AND THUS MAKE YOU DO THE WHOLE PROCESS AGAIN.

Hope you enjoy your Nexus 7!

Updates after using it for two full days:

It is perfectly clear and does not reduce the quality of the original screen. I haven't seen any 'rainbow effects' on the screen with the film.
The film's texture is smooth and not at all dulls the sensitivity of the screen, once the film gets some hand grease on it, like most films.
