Purchase a shield or not? That's the ultimate question. Do I need to cover up my beautiful iPhone screen with a protector? Is it worth it? I welcome your advice.

Yes, but go with the Crystal shield that you can find on Apple.com or at an Apple store. Supposedly they are easier to install and feel more like the original screen.

I have a Bodyguardz kit, which is similar. The screen protector piece is worth putting on the phone, because then you know that keys and coins and all sorts of other nasty, evil objects won't be scratching it.

Here's a quick photo of my phone with the iQase FILM on it. It's the best position/light I could get it at to show how visible the shield is. You can see it's there because of the oval around the ear speaker where it's cut out.

Otherwise, it's just that clear and shiny, feels like glass, and if you don't hold it at an angle like the photo with the screen off, you can't really see it at all (you can't see the edges on the sides at all, it's really just the cut outs that are visible if you try hard.

As for install, watch the YouTube video linked on their page...

...it really is that easy.

go with bestskinsever.com it's the best and cheapest. i put it on in less than 10min with not a single air bubble and you can only feel the difference, it looks just like it did out of the box, superb

I purchased the crystal film from the Apple store. It took less than 2 minutes to apply. This protector is awesome, anyone that holds it can't even tell it is there. It has a great feel to it as well. My favorite part though is after one swipe across my shirt sleeve it is smudge free.

I tried the InvisibleShield and hated the feel of it when using the touch screen. I bought the Crystal Film from Apple and I love it, so easy to apply and use.

Purchase a shield?: Yes
Purchase invisibleshield?: No

I had it and hated it (although I like it on an iPod). The fit just wasn't right and it's too gripy for the iPhone.

I'm using the crystal film available at Apple stores for the screen. I'll probably get the bodyguardz for the whole iPhone since it covers the chrome area and invisibleshield doesn't.

Purchase a shield or not?
