    ive noticed the IS Quality from my S1 to my S2 it has change in looks and feel. on my S1 it has more orange peel look and is sticky feeling. The S2 has a smooth look with glassy feel-

    never looked at the PS so i cant say much-

    I like the invisishield, but it does (can) cause button issues on the s2. I took back 2 phones before I realized it was the shield doing it. I actually removed it form the third and the problem was gone.

    just some personal experiences on this one. I'd like to try some of the others listed in this thread. I shall now go and investigate.

    I liked the Phantom skinz, then found a anti glare screen protector from a ipod touch and they are awesome. Just cut to fit a little. I dont know how i lived without this anti glare, no finger prints and scrolling is just smoother. Wont use any thing else on any of my handheld electronics.

    Yes, that is the one. Here is a link to another one I used on my Storm 1 that was equally as good and I just checked, it is now available for Strom 2. Trust me, I am o.c.d. about my phone and either 1 of these anti-glare/anti-smudge screen protectors are the bomb.

    I ordered from Boxwave

    "Clear Touch Anti-glare"

    To me, these are easily the equal of what Power Support offers for the iPhone. A light matte finish and very resistant to fingerprints.

    I bought a three pack and am very satisfied, really easy to install and no bubbling or flaws

    I have read this entire thread and its full of great information. However, if I wasn't confused about what to get before, I certainly am now.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone tried the protectors that VZW sells? Are they good or bad?

    I haven't seen to many people talk about BodyGuardz on this site, but I believe these are the best screen/body protectors that you can buy!! They are a little more $$ but the quality of their product is by far better than any others that I have seen and tried!! I have them installed on my Storm2, Tour, iPod Touch, and my wifes Storm2 and will soon be getting one for both of our Nintendo DS!!!

    I am absolutely amazed that nobody has simply gone into a local VZW store and purchased the screen protectors that they sell for the S2 over the counter. Or if they have, they are keeping their experiences to themselves.

    Truly amazed...

    ^^ that's because they don't cover the buttons. They're just repackaged s1 protectors

    Thanks for the tip!

    I was thinking of wiping the screen with a little rubbing alcohol to get any oil/dirt off.... is this ok or should just use little water and microfiber??

    mysterl,

    Great question! Great answer! Isopropyl alcohol is the BEST cleaner before installing our skinz (to remove facial oil etc.) or after, to remove any dust or lint. It really works well. I use it on my Tour monthly as a brief "clean up"!

    Hands down the best is Phantom Skinz. Had one on my S1 and put one on my S2 as soon as I could! Works great and last s forever!

    Just installed Phantom Skinz on my S2. It wasn't as hard as I expected it to be. Took about 10 min. to put it on. Now I'm waiting for the Phantom Skinz to dry so I can use my S2. It says to wait 2-4hrs before using device so got little more than 1 hr left.

    The skin felt of high quality when I peeled if off the sheet. I'll update after I actually turn my S2 on and use it but it feels great and is practically invisible.

    just ordered one of these hope its good as wasn't happy with the invisible shield when I installed it, too much orange peek in its look
    mine arrived yesterday, quick shipping from the US to the UK

    in an excellent screen protector, smooth finish and fingerprints reduced a lot.

    The anti glare works well but it does this by reducing the shiny finish of the screen which you notice when when looking at white backgrounds, in emails etc

    but I dont mind this as now I hardly have any fingerprints to clean off!
