    The invisible shiled is awesome, had mine for 4 months so far and the screen looks like new.

    it all depends on what you want. Both are good, the anti-glare and crystal. The major differences are the fingerprinting. The crystal attracts a lot of fingerprints. However the crystal is much more shiny and clean (when it is clean) and gives a brand new effect to old phones.
    The antiglare is awesome because of its feel and sturdiness. It just feels like it is doing its job and actually protecting the screen.
    its all about your own personal preferences.

    I've had both. Antiglare/matte and crystal clear. Good quality crystal clear on retina devices looks fantastic, like nothing is on the screen. It's very noticeable with antiglare/matte on a retina device that the crispness of the screen quality is slightly blurred; however, the feel of it is nice and no fingerprints is great. I prefer the crystal clear though bc of my retina display, looks great. It is quite a fingerprint magnet but it cleans off easily.

    Depending on what you prefer, a crisp looking display or avoiding fingerprints, both are equally nice with different pros and cons.

    I have had zagg as well, it is a thicker skin but doesn't distort display quality either. It does have a more "textured" feel to it. I much prefer the smooth feel of the crystal clear film. SGP is pricey but the quality is great, it doesn't collect dust easily around the home button cutout like some lower quality/cheaper protectors do. Zagg actually collects a bit of dust around the edges and home button cutout.

    There are many screen protectors on the market and most do the same job correctly, some just do it better. I guess my point is zagg is ok, but for the price getting sgp instead would be better. As for the main antiglare bs crystal clear topic, it's purely user preference

    Edit: vs, not bs

    I cant stand any screen protection. Both the feel and look I hate.

    Because you're not a girl stealth, lol. If you're a girl you stick your phone in your purse where your makeup, keys, and other items that can cause scratches are

    Luckily you don't have to go through those hardships huh?

    Well I pull it out when I need it but I find pants offer good protection.

    Well yes, why use other methods of protection when keeping it in the pants provides a very effective way of avoiding accidents

    Makes sense. Can't keep it there forever.

    Maybe I should get a protector for when I do have to use it.

    That's my point exactly. You take risks when taking it out without proper protection and accidents don't discriminate

    There are ones that don't have an orange peel feel. Quite smooth and attractively glossy, that's the best.

    No not really. Maybe the orange peel ones make it feel less "in tact" but if it isn't too thick or "textured" it is good.

    I dont like thick, tacky, or orange peel. Maybe if it was silky smooth it would be ok. I have never found any like that tho.

    Lol well if you've never had a problem without a protector then by all means stick without it

    I am just a paranoid freak lol

    Actually on topic, the crystal clear by SGP really does feel like the naked screen.
