    Default Mirror Screen Protector?
    So yea, I want one but I'm afraid that it will darken the screen a bit and collect fingerprints...which is 95% of the reason I use a protector in the first place. Any brand suggestions?

    If not a mirror protector, perhaps a privacy cover?

    I have the mirror protector. It's cool looking. The draw back is the fingerprints and when in daylight (outside) it's harder to see. It also darkens the screen, but that helps to keep prying eyes out of my business.

    ive bought some imported mirror protectors for a dollar.
    PROS: Covered the screen scrathes on my first phone, flashy presence,
    slight privacy angle deflection, just darn cool looking.
    CONS: Shows slight smudges and prints easily (micro-fiber towel),
    tends to darken the screen, can be a b***h to work the air bubbles out.
    but for a $1 worth a try 3 times.

    If fingerprints are a problem for you a mirror protector is not the way to go at all. They do make a frosted type that is totally resistant to fingerprints but as the mirror type do, you do lose a bit of the clarity (not as much as the mirror type though.
    I use the Crystal type and I just love them and would recommend that type.

    try Power Support, they have some really nice screen protectors, maybe you can find what you're looking for there.

    I change mine so often that I just buy them off eBay, I get 5 for $5.00 shipping included. Change them every week so it stays clean and pretty,lmao

    The mirror was cool for the first week. After that, it was just a nuisance. You had to increase the brightness, thus killing the battery. Ontop of that, the face sensor stopped working, so my face kept putting people on mute or hanging up on them during a call.

    Blah. Go for a regular screen protector.

    Go with a crystal screen protector all the way. Nothing can beat the clarity.

    ^^ No, it just means a clear screen protector.

    Good ones are the PowerSupport Crystal Screen Protector, etc.

    But its better to get em off eBay for really cheap, so that you can change like 5 times before you reach the price of one branded protector.
