    Clarivue anti-glare or crystal clear. You get 2 for about $10. I prefer the anti glare because it's fingerprint free and easier to read in sunlight.

    It's not tinted, but it does look slightly different than the clear ones.



    You can see the difference there. The anti glare has WAY less of a mirror effect and doesn't really fingerprint at all, but the clear ones are more clear.

    Here's a better video.
    The clarity is a little bit worse on the anti glare, but man the reflections + highlights + fingerprints more than makes up for it imo...

    Shipping probably depends on what shipping option you choose.

    I kind of prefer the type that "static" adhere rather than use real "glues" or adhesives.

    I removed the "privacy" protector from my Tour but have not applied it to the Bold. It is sold by Verizon

    I like it so far. It's my first screen protector, so I have nothing to compare it to. I didn't put one on my last phone. I got a slight scratch on the screen, therefore I didn't want the same to happen to this one. I was always wiping the screen on my previous phone without a screen protector. It would always show smudges. This won't doesn't really show smudges, so I'm glad for that. I didn't wet my fingertips like I was supposed to during installation, so I ended up getting a fingerprint in the top right corner of the screen. I can't see it if the screen is on, but I can when the phone is in standby mode. Which at that point, it shouldn't really matter. I'll probably order another set just because of that fingerprint.

    I hadthe verizon privacy screen on my other bold and then I got it replaced with this one and decided to try amazon and to my suprise they had ones pretty much identical tithe vzw ones. They were one cent but the shipping was 15 bux so I bought all 5 they had left in the store for a total of about 15 bux. They're great.

    I ended up not liking the privacy screens because they were too dark. Had to put my screen brightness at a higher setting.

    With the screen protectors you do have to brighten up the screen slightly & when looking at photos its not crystal clear but I don't mind that so much. I really like the privacy screen; it seems thicker than the regular screen protectors thus making me feel more protected. Plus when looking at porn on the subway I don't get those weird looks anymore from the ppl around me. Haha that's totally a joke! Its more so to keep my boyfriend from seeing the hot guys I'm talking to on bbm. Ok that's not true either. Whatever it is you want to keep private, it really does work

    I really like the Verizon privacy screen protector. I had one on my 9630 and it really saved my screen when my BB decided to jump in the space between my seat and the console in my car. The protector saved my screen as I gently tried to retrieve my BB. The protector got scratched up but my screen didnt! Thats my other reason besides privacy for having it on my 9650.

    i gave up on screen protectors, i have a clear protector i never used on my storm 1 that i stuck to my desk today for fun(what was left from a warrenty exchange from them). as far as ease , i like the static ones with whatever they use. i dont like the idea of water. i had a tour one that i tried to put on my bold but something got under it during the installation and i said screw it and tossed it. along with 3 static ones that dust got under them. if ur not in a dust free zone be careful. i can't say that i am so its hard for me.

    so My quick review of the phamtomskinz screen protector. If done right they look great almost non existent but if done wrong you can definitely tell. lucky they gave me 2 skinz cuz i messed up the first one but the second came out flawless. so follow the instructions and you will have a great product.

    I like the FREE one that came pre-installed on the Tour and now on the new Bold. Just trim the little tab @ the bottom and ur all set! However, it wii not sheild prying eyes from seeing ur porn for free. .
