First class - ONCE IN SITU. Review by Richard
I have bought many of these. Many because of the difficulty of affixing them EXACTLY in position on the iPhone screen. A tiny fraction out and they fail properly to cover leaving a slight overlap with an apparent air hole under. But once on correctly they are marvellous and last forever. Maybe if they were made just a tiny fraction smaller this problem would be obviated. I have to buy several packs to overcome the problem and also I have 3 units. The back covers are not good because they are made in 3 pieces rather than a single as the from ones. The small pieces at top and bottom never quite adhere properly. A shame. Why not all in one?

Great product.
Great service and help from the team ! (Posted on 13/08/2014)
Great product and customer service!. Review by Chloe
The product is just as described and nothing was missing in the package. The screen protector was pretty simple to put on the phone and the videos provided on this site helped too.
I also loved little sweets that were inside the package! (Posted on 10/03/2014)
Awesome. Review by Christie
Really quick delivery and helpful videos to instruct you on how to apply. The tip about the adhesive tape is a good one. As far as I can see the product offers really good protection, but this will only truly be tested if you experience an event that should scratch your screen. I'm confident though with the technology. The only thing I would say is take care when pulling off the second disposable layer as when I did it the protector became "unstuck" and lifted up creating air bubbles. Awesome customer service though. (Posted on 08/02/2014)
iphone 5s. Review by brijesh
I bought this a while back and it is excellent worth every penny, the screen is always clear and unlike normal screen protectors this was easy to put on and doesn't leave scratches after using it for a few weeks in my case a few months now still in perfect condition. (Posted on 31/01/2014)
Fantastic screen protector. Review by Janet
I have used various screen protectors before which have peeled away. The iPhone 5s Media Devil screen protector is easy to apply and doesn't peel away. I previously used one on my iPhone 4S - it's still on the phone after 2 years. Definitely recommend. (Posted on 28/01/2014)
iphone 5s screen protector. Review by Keith
Although the wrong screen protector was sent to me, MediaDevil quickly got the correct one sent out and didn't need to wait for me to send the incorrect one back. 2nd time around the item is exactly what I ordered. Things can go wrong and I say the measure of a company is how they put it right. MediaDevil are very very polite and quick to reply. They are the most pleasant and fast acting company I have ever dealt with. (Posted on 06/01/2014)
Best I've used. . Review by Robin
Complete coverage, easy to apply, hardest wearing I've ever tried, I'm a mechanic and give these covers a lot of pain, they work a treat. Esp with back protector too for added safety. I would never buy any other brand, these guys have it all sewn up. Simple really. 5 star product. (Posted on 31/12/2013)
The Best by Far. Review by Gloria
This company never ceases to deliver. I inadvertently ordered the wrong model number, but before I had a chance to realise, customer service had emailed me to point out my mistake and to clarify my order, saving me both time and money. The product speaks for itself; easy to fit and seamless in operation. I really wouldn't use any other company for my screen protection. They make great gifts too. (Posted on 25/11/2013)
Another great product. Review by Garreth
I originally bought screen protectors from MediaDevil for my iPhone 4S, as those screen protectors were great quality, it was only natural for me to use them again for my iPhone 5S.

As usual, great quality screen protectors from MediaDevil, you get 2 of them in case you get the first one wrong and some sweets too! Great product (Posted on 24/11/2013)
Your iPhone still looks amazing. Review by Mark
Fantastic fit and easy to install. Once installed you can't tell this protector is even there. Just take your time and if you don't get it right first time simply lift from a corner with some tape and try again. If you end up with any dust under the screen, finish installing then raise the area affected with some tape and remove dust by inserting a piece of tape between phone screen and protector to remove the dust particle. Re-apply affected area and smooth out. So simple and works every time. Simply the best you can buy. (Posted on 20/11/2013)
Consistent Quality Screen Protector. Review by Rui Filipe
I discovered the Mediadevil Magicscreen 2 years ago with the Iphone 4S, I have been a satisfied user ever since.
The Iphone 5s MagicScreen version is just as good, with easy application and excellent size fitting.
The result is really great - it feels like a second skin to your device. Your friends will soon ask you where you got your screen protector from :)
With the Mediadevil Magicscreen you can not go wrong!

Perfect. Review by Steven
Easy to apply, works perfectly and very reasonably priced!! (Posted on 13/11/2013)
Offers great protection you cant see :). Review by Darren
Have always had the invisible shield on my phones and the 5s was no exception. Received via amazon and all was well, comes with two shields and was easy to apply but hard to get straight (due to me I might add). Always lasts for months to a year and easy to take off.

Great product and service to add. (Posted on 30/10/2013)
Excellent product and excellent value for money. Review by Gareth
Very pleased with these screen protectors indeed and lived up to my expectations - delighted how sharp and clear my new iPhone display looks. Only one slight niggle is that getting the protector 100% aligned is very difficult - but that is more to do with how precisely cut the protector is so that there is very little room for manoeuvre. I will buy again. (Posted on 21/10/2013)
best stuff I ever ordered. Review by Lóránt
I ordered this protector a week ago. Just perfect. Even the material and all the accessories I got to it. I also got 2 sweeties in the mail. These guyz really know how to make someones day. I really appreciate it.
I highly recommend Mediadevil stuff for everybody! (Posted on 21/10/2013)
perfect. . Review by John
Perfect fit and quality material. Feel it's protecting my screen, giving me piece of mind.
(Posted on 22/08/2013)
Great as usual. Review by Charles
Never quite know why I bother with the cheap Ebay screen protectors! I always end up back here to get a proper one that sticks and stays stuck until you choose to remove rather than when it decides it no longer likes being part of your phone.

Well done again MediaDevil. (Posted on 17/07/2013)
iPhone 5 protector. Review by Jerry
Upgraded my phone from a 4 to a 5 so naturally got a new screen without hesitation. Best on the market, will continue to use. (Posted on 07/07/2013)
I KEEP COMING BACK!. Review by Sam1955
I have used this screen protector in the past and as then, I couldn't be more pleased. It is the only one for me, particularly as it is great value for money with a quality far better than the grossly expensive brands! (Posted on 13/04/2013)
Superb!. Review by 21alpha
Ive always used these screen protectors from Media Devil and they never disappoint. I have found that the version for the iPhone 5 is even easier to fit than the 4s version.

Superb!! (Posted on 08/04/2013)
A Pleasure To Deal With. Review by vicki
Customer service is top notch, very very quick quick, a pleasure to deal with!

I can't comment on the durability of my screen protector, as had 3 different handsets in the first 36 hours I had the phone, so no longer have the protector as i put it on my first handset which I quickly gave back to the shop.....! Very easy to apply and look almost invisible though. (Posted on 03/04/2013)
Very good. Review by Hugo

Keeps the phones in top condition.. Review by Richard
We've used the MediaDevil screen protectors for ages, and although they may cost a little more than the average, you do get what you pay for. I apply these covers to corporate phones, as soon as they are un-boxed, and having changed them a few times in their lives for 'key jabs', i've just removed them all so i can sell them on, and the screens are like new.
We've just purchased some more for the new phones, as they're so good. (Posted on 11/02/2013)
Great protector. Review by Matthew
Great protector and super fast delivery!

Excellent service - many thanks. (Posted on 09/02/2013)
The best I tried (beats Zagg). Review by Gert-Jan
This is by far the best screen protector i tried. It fits perfectly and is almost invisible.
I had a Zagg invisible shield before but I didn't like the orange skin look and rubbery feel. This has better feel and look (protection is a bit less but more than enough for my use) The price is a lot lower than the Zagg. (Posted on 07/02/2013)
Great product. Review by Sasa

Amazing Quality and Customer Service!. Review by Steven
This is a virtually undetectable screen protector, it's is super quality, feels great when on. Highly recommended.

The customer service is unbelievably superb. The most attentive and helpful company I have ever done business with! (Posted on 31/01/2013)
Fantastic. Review by Simon
No problems, No Marks, No Bubbles. Biggest fear was putting it on but the You Tube clip was a real help. (Posted on 28/01/2013)
fantastic screen protector. Review by Nick
I've never used screen protectors on my iPhones because all the ones I've seen have been of dubious quality and flawed when fitted. A colleague was showing me his new iPhone recently and I asked him if he had considered a screen protector, he told me that there was one fitted! I couldn't detect it until he pointed the edges out to me, they are that good. That is why I ordered one for my phone before the phone had even arrived. easy to apply and fantastic invisible result. My only question is why do they supply two front and no rear? I would have been happier with one of each. A 5 star product. (Posted on 27/01/2013)
Is really invisible. Review by Kathryn
Really easy to fit and once on you can't tell it's there. Does exactly what you want a screen protector to do. (Posted on 27/01/2013)
Great Product. Review by Eddie
Received this product about two weeks after ordering it and I am extremely happy with it already. Had the stock screen protector that Otterbox gives you and this one knocks it out of the water! It is thinner and you can barely even tell it is there! (Posted on 24/01/2013)
Great stuff. Review by Robin
Will be purchasing again. (Posted on 23/01/2013)
Good product. Does what I expected. Review by michael

The only product for Retina displays. Review by Andrea
It's shocking how good this screen protector is - if it wasn't for the slight eccentricity around the home button (my fault!) you wouldn't know there is anything there. The fit and tolerance on this is the best I've ever seen on any screen protector for any product anywhere. The clarity is so good that it made the 'clear' screen protector that was on it before (bought from Apple Store) look milky! It does smudge very easily, but no more so than the original screen. My biggest complaint is with the application process - the cloth included with the packaging left more dust on the screen than I started with! The rival product I had before used a stick pre-application sticky film to remove dust, which worked extremely well - perhaps this solution can be included with future products? Application itself was a doodle - lining the screen protector up was fairly easy and it's not prone to creating bubbles. So yeah, it's worth every cent! (Posted on 14/01/2013)
Eccellente pellicola,azienda fantastica. Review by Giovanni
La pellicola è tra le migliori sul mercato,nitidissima e inoltra l'applicazione è semplice e veloce,e difficilmente si creano bolle.
Inoltre l'azienda è di una serietà incredibile,mi hanno mandato delle nuove pellicole posteriori perchè insoddisfatto della versione a tre pezzi,meglio di così non si può!
Tornerò sicuramente a comprare da voi!
I migliori! (Posted on 13/01/2013)
Easiest screen protector to install. Review by Susie
This screen protector practically installed itself. The quality is supreme. You can't even tell that you have anything on the phone. This is the only screen protector I would ever use. (Posted on 05/01/2013)
Good Product. Review by Alistair
Fairly easy to fit, tough and is pretty much invisible. (Posted on 02/01/2013)
Simply the best!!!. Review by Jason
How can you describe a screen protector that is simply the best on the market. Fitting can be tricky but with patience you get an excellent result, even fitting this on a white iPhone 5 (which is not the easiest thing to do) you get outstanding results. I ordered mine on Christmas eve and the screen protector arrived on Thursday 27th, the first day my postman was back at work, simple and effective. I have used MediaDevil products on several iPhones (4/4s and now 5) and the quality of the product is only getting better, if that is possible. I would highly recommend these screen protectors to anyone. (Posted on 29/12/2012)
Excellent. Review by Michael
Wether you get the matte, or clear protectors, they are the best on the market by a mile. Extremely easy application due to the precise fitting, and the surface is great to the touch, unlike many cheap protectors out there. (Posted on 29/12/2012)
Brilliant even I managed to install it.. Review by Michael
Very pleased. One comment I had after fitting, from someone who is obsessed by their phone was, "Nice you should get a screen protector"

Watched the videos on how to install it and went for the in the barhroom after a shower approach. Took me two goes to get the alignment right but still perfect and not a bubble of any sort. Brilliant!! (Posted on 11/12/2012)
The Best. Bar None.. Review by Andrew
Every screen protector out there has at least one flaw and honestly, they all basically suck. MediaDevil is the first to actually come out with not just an average, good product, but a really great product. Everything from packaging to customer support has been top notch.

And their screen protector and application system makes for a very smooth and easy to handle process. The one thing that MediaDevil does that other companies that provide similar products and services do not, is care. They really do and you know they care because of one word: quality.

Can you buy a screen protector worth half, maybe even a quarter of the price of their Magicscreen? Sure, they're all over the Web. Search "screensaver" and you'll get a plethora. Read the reviews of most of them, not too good are they? That's because those "companies" are peddling shit on the cheap. And what happens? You end up tossing them away and more often than not within the first week. Quality is key.

Go ahead, buy a $2, $3 screen protector. But think about how many times you've had to replace them in the past. You end up spending way than the $10, $11 you would spend for a single product from MediaDevil. Again, quality.

There is no reason for me to shop around next time I am looking for phone protection products because I know I will get them here. And I will have no hesitations or reservations because that quality I speak about is guaranteed and they prove it each and every time. (Posted on 09/12/2012)

Excellent. Review by Alex
Received within a few days of ordering (free delivery option)

Protector was simple to attach. Film is slightly thicker than other ones I have seen so reduces the chance of bubbles.

Only needed one attempt to fix with no bubbles at all. Needs close examination to see that the screen protector is fitted.

Only drawback is that fingerprints (and dirt in general) seem to be a bit more noticeable but only slightly. (Posted on 04/12/2012)
VEry Good!. Review by Matthew
Fast delivery! Quality product! (Posted on 24/11/2012)
MediaDevil are now my first stop for protectors!. Review by Neil
As per the summary above, if I've got a new gadget coming, MD are my 1st port of call to order a screen protector.
I've used them since they were PhoneDevil for my iPhone 4 and subsequently my 4S, iPad, iPad 3 and my iPhone 5.

My Wife has just gotten herself an iPad Mini and I'll be getting her an MD protector just as soon as they are available.

With MD, it's not just the product that is superb, it's also the hugely customer friendly service you get.

Whether it's by email or over Twitter, they come across as a company that really wants to help you and takes your satisfaction really seriously.

Overall, A superb product, superb service and superb pricing, plus I've always had quick delivery-I preordered my iPhone 5 screen protector knowing that it should be shipped during the 1st week of October, but I think it arrived on October 1st!

Classic under promise and over deliver, but I was a happy bunny none the less!

In short, if you're thinking of getting a screen protector for your device, make sure you check MD 1st and if they make one for your device, then just hit the buy button! (Posted on 07/11/2012)
Love it. Review by Jamie
I only use mediadevil screen protectors. Like all the previous mediadevil screen protectors I've used, this one fits well. It's not too thick, it does not get scratches easily [I have none so far], and I don't have to fight with it to pull it up when I'm trying to position it. I've never had a mediadevil screen protector leave any kind of residue on my screen after removal, which is great. It does pick up fingerprints more than the screen protectors I used before I discovered mediadevil, but all the things I like about it outweigh the one thing I dislike. (Posted on 31/10/2012)
Great screen protector. Review by Timothy
This is my first time buying MediaDevil screen protectors, but I've bought may other brands in the past. They are even better than the ones I use to consider the best. Plus, with this brand, I get 2 screen protectors for less than the cost of 1 in the other brand. My only small complaint is that because the dimensions are so perfect, there is no margin for error when applying. (Posted on 31/10/2012)

I've been buying media devil screen protectors for the last couple of years and I think they are quite simply the only screen protector worth buying.

Fantastic product!. Review by Sarah
I have been a fan of MediaDevil since my first IPhone (about 4 years). Since then, I have exclusively used MediaDevil’s screen protectors and have recommended it to everyone I know. This is by far the most superior product! It is so well made, easy to apply, and to re-apply. Fantastic! In fact, recently I went into the Apple store and the sales rep looking at my phone was so impressed by the screen protector that he asked me where I got it and made a note to buy it and to recommend it to customers. And the best part, you cannot even tell there is a screen protector. (Posted on 24/10/2012)

Favourite screen protection. Review by Jamie
Since the first one I ever used, I've been hooked. I don't like any other protector on my screen. These just arrived today, and as usual they applied easily and flawlessly. Most of the New screen protectors I've seen have had cutaways from the home button or the speaker and front camera that I did not like. The media devil still cuts very close to all of those keeping it very invisible as it covers the front of the screen. Sensitivity is, as always, perfect, and these never leave behind residue when I remove them. Though they do pick up fingerprints easier than others I have used, it is a small price to pay for a clear, scratch resistant protector. (Posted on 14/10/2012)
Great product and service!. Review by Jeffrey
I will start by giving my quick thoughts on this product.

-Easy to install.
-Great directions via video or included paperwork.
-Easy to remove bubbles.
-Great protection.

Now onto my longer review on MediaDevil and its products and services. I live in the US, and I could not get this product on Amazon when the iPhone 5 first came out.
I went to my local store and bought the new Zagg Extreme for $35 US and had it installed for another $7 US. I had many issues with it and went back for another one. After the second one had major discoloration issues, I just returned it.
On my iPhone 4S I had this same MediaDevil clear screen and never had an issue with it. I kept my browser open on the MediaDevil page until I could buy this product.
I ordered it for delivery in the US and did not pay any shipping. It came in about 4 or 5 days. Installation was a breeze and I have no issues. I love the product and the service, it could not be better at all.

On a side note, I need to see the screen of my iPhone, I need it to be responsive and clear. I do not abuse my phone and it is always in a case of some sort. At home, I have it in a iFrog ultralight so the back is protected and I have the Media Devil just for light screen protection. Once in a while I will throw the phone in my pocket with my keys. I know it is not a good idea, but this product has never had a scratch or any issues. It is worth every penny as it clocks in at roughly $12 US and even comes with an extra. I still have my extra from my iPhone 4S and never needed it. This is even responsive when I use it with an Otterbox Defender. The Defender series has a built in screen cover and the iPhone is still very responsive in it.

Overall I give this product and company 5 stars. It is well deserved on all fronts. Great work, and you have a loyal customer for life. I just wish your products were available in US stores. Thanks! (Posted on 10/10/2012)
Fantastic product. Review by Craig
Well first off I placed the order just after 6pm, and it was processed and dispatched all before 7 and it arrived the next day, the delivery speed alone is worth 5 stars, the protector fits a dream and it is what it says on the box crystal clear its amazing. This company always puts its customers first and there always aiming to improve the quality of there products and this protector is no exception, yes it leaves visible fingerprints but which protector doesn't, a simple wipe of your microfibre cloth and the jobs a goodun, come on media devil hurry up with the back protectors ill be purchasing these for sure as well. (Posted on 10/10/2012)
AMAZING COMPANY !!!!!. Review by Benjamin
so i purchased this product on the 2nd of October and recevied it on October 9th i live in the us and that is amazing speed for this company being overseas, i used this product on my iPhone 4s and its amazing the fit and the clarity. I can tell you now i will never every go with a different company again, the cutouts are tight and clean and looks great, does attract a lot of finger prints but that's the price you pay. I LOVE THESE GUYS they even included candy in my package CANDY!!!!! if you don't buy this your crazy, MEDIA DEVIL YOUR GREAT AND I WILL BE A LONG TIME CUSTOMER (Posted on 10/10/2012)
Best screen protector I have ever had. Review by Patrick
Media Devil was recommended to me by a friend as I had never used them before. The product was delivered before the estimated date of delivery which impressed me. The item is excellent. Easy to apply and makes for a great effect on your phone. You cannot tell there is a screen protector on the phone and it protects my screen at the same time. I would recommend anyone to shop with Media Devil. (Posted on 09/10/2012)
Excellent quality. Review by Jo
I ordered this product early afternoon and ordered first class delivery, it was dispatched within a couple of hours and arrived the next morning. I'm so impressed with the postage because i wanted a screen protector for my iphone 5 asap as I'm a bit of a flailer and could see me dropping the phone soon. The video showing how to apply is great, and it was a very easy application. The screen protector looks really good on, you can't notice that it is there. And I think it's great value for money. The attention to detail from this company in every aspect of getting the product you want is great. Highly recommend. (Posted on 09/10/2012)

About Magicscreen

I cannot find a screen protector for my device on your website. How do I know if you do/will sell screen protectors for it?

Please visit our Coming Soon page.

All upcoming products that we have confirmed we will be selling are listed there, and you can sign up for an email notification of when the product you are waiting for becomes available.

If the product you would like is not listed, please complete our Product Request form and we will discuss it in our weekly product range meeting (your requests do genuinely get heard).

What is the difference between your Magicscreen and Easyscreen screen protectors?

Magicscreen uses the ‘static-cling’ screen protector format that most of the world’s leading screen protector brands use. It is the most commonly used format of screen protector by a very large margin.

Our protectors do not use adhesive to stick to the screen, they use an electrostatically charged silicon layer that sucks/secures the protector to the device screen using an ‘electrostatic-cling’ produced vacuum.
This is how our protectors can be easily removed without residue/markings being left on the device screen.

Easyscreen is our ‘next generation’ screen protector for large screen devices, and the result of many months of research.
Unlike ‘regular’ format screen protectors like Magicscreen, Easyscreen does not stick to the viewable area of the screen. This means that that air or dust bubbles will never occur on the viewable screen area during the application of Easyscreen.
Adhesive is only used around the Easyscreen border, which is coloured to ensure that any air trapped under it is not visible.
This colouring of the border has allowed us to offer a range of ten different colours.

Due to the way that it works, Easyscreen can only be produced for certain devices, primarily large screen devices.
Due to the Laws of Physics, Easyscreen can also only be produced in our Matte Clear edition. It is not possible to create a Crystal Clear edition Easyscreen.

What is the difference between your Crystal Clear and Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) screen protector editions?

The main difference is the surface texture:

- Our Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) edition has a frosted matte surface which reduces screen glare.
It also feels really nice to touch (although it may take you a few hours to get used to), nicer than the regular screen texture in our opinion.

Our Matte Clear edition is very popular in particular for tablet devices, as it greatly aids reading the screen outside in sunny conditions.

Matte material protectors do produce a slight pixellation of the screen, as this is the natural effect created by the Matte (anti-glare) frosted texture. It is simply an unavoidable 'Law of Physics', and you should forget about it after a few hours once you stop consciously thinking about it.

You will see this pixellation on all anti-glare screen protectors from all brands (many of which are noticeably more extreme than ours). Apple's matte screen monitors (and professional television industry monitors) display it also, as it is simply unavoidable.
If you require a perfectly ‘crystal clear’ screen, then we strongly recommend using our (glossy surfaced) Crystal Clear edition instead, which is invisible when applied to the device screen, and does not affect its clarity in any way.

- Our Crystal Clear (Invisible) edition uses a glossy surface texture.
It is invisible on your phone when applied, and feels like your device’s natural screen. It does not affect the device’s screen glare or clarity in any way.

Glossy screen protectors do inevitably attract fingerprints, like a regular device screen does.
Some of the latest electronic device screens have a very expensive ‘oleophobic’ (anti-fingerprint) surface layer, and therefore you may notice extra fingerprinting if using a glossy screen protector on them.
For example: The iPhones 3GS/4/4S have an anti-fingerprint screen surface, whereas the iPhone 3G and the iPad 1/iPad 2 do not have it. Our Crystal Clear edition protector therefore provides the same fingerprint resistance as the latter devices.

Will your screen protectors affect either the sensitivity of my device’s touch screen, or the light/proximity sensor under the screen?

Our screen protectors do not affect the sensitivity of touch screens or light/proximity sensors in any way. In fact, you are even able to use our Magicwand capacitive touch screen stylus when one of our screen protectors is applied.

Do your screen protectors cover the front facing camera or the light/proximity sensor in the device screen?

Our protectors have a purpose cut hole for front facing cameras (to prevent any light ‘flaring’ from appearing in photos).
In the vast majority of cases, our protectors do cover the light/proximity sensor, as (unlike products from competing brands) they do not affect the sensitivity of the sensor.

Are your screen protectors the unscratchable format, or the scratch-resistant format (i.e. protect ‘from’ scratching)?

There are two different types of screen protector: ‘hard’ unscratchable protectors, and ‘soft’ scratch-resistant protectors. They are rather different to each other, and both have their own advantages and limitations compared to the other.

Our protectors are the ‘soft’ static-cling scratch-resistant type (i.e. they protect your device ‘from’ scratches, rather than being totally resistant to scratches themselves). This format is the most popular type of screen protector by a very large margin, and most of the world’s leading screen protector brands also use it.

Our protectors are more (or equally) resistant to scratches than all directly competing scratch-resistant screen protector products, and provide a high level of protection for your screen (even if they pick up scratches themselves).
To prevent the screen protectors themselves from getting scratched, treat your device well by keeping it away from keys and other sharp objects. Keys do huge damage to device screens, and can easily result in hairline scratching of the protectors if you keep them in the same pocket.

It would be possible for us to make our protectors more resistant to scratches, however this would remove the friction of the surface texture, and as a result they would not feel smooth to touch.
One major issue with the protectors that claim to be unscratchable, is that they do feel very rubbery, and affect the user's enjoyment of their device. That is not something we wish our customers to experience, and therefore we do not range unscratchable protectors. Our protectors provide benefits in other areas.

Please see this link to our troubleshooting guide for a detailed comparison of our protector format versus 'unscratchable' protectors like Zagg’s InvisibleShield (the best known ‘unscratchable’ screen protector).
You may want to read Amazon reviews of the InvisibleShield to see if it is perhaps a product better suited to your requirements.

Please note that Zagg do not sell a Matte 'unscratchable' screen protector, because it is not achievable as Matte material is a bit softer than glossy material, and scratches are also more obvious due to the frosted texture.

Questions on Magicscreen screen protector - Crystal Clear (Invisible) Edition - Apple iPhone SE/5/5s

  • From Max at 23/11/2012 02:24
    • How does this screen protected work with a case?
    • If you have a case that does not hug the front of the screen very closely (e.g. our iPhone 5 cases), you'll have no problems whatsoever. There are very few cases that mess up screen protectors, and they are always the cases that overlap the edge of the screen extremely tightly (i.e. usually cases that aren't designed very well).
