I think they are all pretty close in that aspect. The reason I'm going with the Invisiblesheild is the lifetime warrantee. :laugh2:

I just had one installed. I was happy with the back, but NOT the front shield. When the phone was on, you couldn't tell it was there, but off - it's very wavy and ripply. It's think and feels like a vinyl material. I took the front cover off and put a crystal film screen protector back on. You can't even tell it's there, and it feels a lot better.

Hmmm. How long did you keep the front on because the official website says after a couple days the waves and ripples should go away. . . Anyway, the screen protector you mentioned, was that a specific brand? And how has it worked so far? Any scratches?

Oh really? So it messes up the touch screen? Well someone i work with has Phantomskinz on her iPhone and it dose not have that wavy ripply effect on or off. another reason i was kinda leaning twards phantomskinz is casue you get 2 full patterns for one.. and a lifetime warranty. AHHH idk what one to choose haha

Only a day, BUT - I've seen 2 other phones that have had the IS on there for over a year, and it still looks wavy and ripply. Plus the guys at the store said that doesn't go away.

Imagine taking a vinyl film and getting it form to a specific shape. It'll only work if it's stretched out. It looks fine on the back, but NOT on the cover. I'm glad I took it off.

I'd recommend Invisible Shield over a start up anyday. I've had very good success with Zagg's products.

Well i have not had any experinece with IS or Phantomskins, but i have had experience with Bestskinsever. Let me tell you, there price is the cheapest i have found and it is a great skin. It only comes with the protector film, the solution you have to make urself with some mild soap. I was hesitant at first and since they don't have a lifetime warranty like IS. But i had originally saved all my receipts and things when i first bought the phone including the invoice form Bestskinsever. So earlier this year, my iPhone was acting up and was forced to get it replaced, and thereforee, loosing my skin. I email them being the cheapskate i am, asking if they could do anything for me, the CEO or manager of the company said they would be glad to replace it with the order number i had been given with the order, and i guess my saving of papers really did help because i had gotten my replacement a few days later :).
Check them out.
