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
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
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.

Does your Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) edition affect the clarity of the device screen?

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.

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.

Before Application

Where can I watch your Video Application Instructions?

All the videos are listed above. You can also view our favourite customer review which shows a great way to remove dust from your screen.

Are there any precautions I can take to avoid dust bubbles?

There are indeed:

1) Be completely informed BEFORE applying a screen protector:

ALWAYS read our product instructions and watch our video tutorials before applying the protector, no matter how skilled you may or may not believe yourself to be. We know this sounds incredibly obvious, however we estimate that over 90% of the people who contact us for support would have avoided their application difficulties if they had taken correct care in reading the instructions we provide. Screen protectors are very much one of those products that you must read instructions for.

Many people who contact us with dust bubble difficulties are not even aware that we provide a very effective adhesive tape dust-removal method in both our written packaging instructions and our video tutorial. If you are not aware of this method, please read up on it, it's really useful and you should not be even beginning a screen protector application without adhesive tape prepared and within arm distance.

We have applied thousands of screen protectors and, even if you believe yourself to be a seasoned pro, you will pick up some tips from us that can make all the difference.

2) Prepare your environment to avoid dust:

The main source of dust bubbles under an applied screen protector is not a dusty screen prior to application. It is in fact the quality of the air in the room you are in. Just because the room is tidy, it does not mean that the air is not full of dust.

We highly recommend applying the screen protector in your bathroom. There are two reasons for this:

i) If your bathroom floor is tiled, the air in the room is likely to have less dust in it than other rooms, and the tiled floor also ensures very little static electricity is generated. This is a trick used by the computer repair industry.

ii) Run a hot shower/bath for enough time to fill the room with steam, and then allow it to subside a bit before applying the screen protector. The subsiding steam pulls a large amount of dust from the air, and thus makes it less likely that you will experience dust bubbles during your screen protector application.

During Application

I am applying a Magicscreen screen protector and bubbles have appeared. Why has this happened and how can I remove them?

Bubbles are a result of three things:

1) Air (which can be easily removed using the supplied smoothing card. See our video and written packaging instructions for further advice).

2) Dust (removed using the adhesive tape method provided in our video and written packaging instructions), which is almost always a result of dust in the air rather than a dusty screen prior to application.

3) Misalignment (which can result in the edges of the protector being pushed upwards by the screen edge, if your device has a raised screen edge).

All of these issues relate to the application method used, and the air quality of the environment you applied the screen protector in. The price of a decent screen protector has very little to do with the bubbles you experienced, it relates to things such as lack of peeling, greater clarity, and no added friction. We do however provide much better instructions than many brands, which are very important when it comes to screen protectors, and this helps to make our protectors easier to apply without bubbles (or to remove bubbles once applied) than others.

Our packaging instructions advise how to apply the screen protector with no air bubbles or dust bubbles, and also advises how to remove them should they appear. They mention to stop applying as soon as bubbles appear - did you do this?

To diagnose the source of the bubbles:

Are there long thin areas of lifting along the edge or in the corner of the protector (i.e. lifting rather than bubbles), or are there small round bubbles inside the edges of the protectors?

Areas of lifting around the edges of the screen are a strong indication that your protector has been slightly misaligned on your screen. Some devices (commonly Apple and Samsung devices) have raised screen edges, and if the screen protector is in contact with the raised edge, it causes the protector to lift, creating what looks like a long thin bubble (which cannot be smoothed out) along the edge or in the corner of the screen. Unless you are aware of the existence of the raised screen edge, it can seem as if the bubble is appearing due to the screen protector not sticking properly at the edges.

Small round bubbles are a result of dust and appear like 'spots' on the screen. The bathroom steam dust-removal method in our application tutorial video (which we provide a link in our packaging instructions, and in the email sent to you when your order shipped) is extremely effective at removing dust from the air before the application, did you use it?

The adhesive tape dust-removal method mentioned in our instructions is also very effective if used during the initial application process (and in conjunction with the bathroom steam method), but less so in the hours afterwards. This excellent application tutorial was made by one of our customers, and is arguably better than ours. You should find his demonstration of how to apply a screen protector without dust bubbles very useful.

Just to make sure that you are aware, we also recommend in our instructions to use strong adhesive tape if you need to lift the protector from the screen (e.g. to remove dust). This reduces the ever-present risk of dust/fingerprints sticking to the protector when it is lifted off the screen, and ensures the edges of the protector are not damaged. Whatever you do, don't touch the adhesive side with your fingers as skin cells are very hard to remove and usually result in blurring of the protector.

Can you guarantee that I will experience no bubbles with these screen protectors?

The price of a decent screen protector has very little to do with any bubbles experienced, it relates to things such as lack of peeling, greater clarity, and no added friction. We do however provide much better instructions than many brands, which are very important when it comes to screen protectors, and this helps to make our protectors easier to apply without bubbles (or to remove bubbles once applied) than others.

3) Misalignment (which can result in the edges of the protector being pushed upwards by the screen edge, if your device has a raised screen edge).

All of these issues relate to the application method used, and the air quality of the environment you applied the screen protector in.

You will see many (many) positive comparisons of our products to cheap unbranded multipack options. We are BlackBerry's screen protector partner, we were awarded the UK Government's 2011 Business Innovation Award, and one of our iPhone screen protector packs was the fourth 'most 5-star rated product' on the entire Amazon.co.uk website in 2011 (Amazon's own Kindles were positions 1-3, and position 6 was Adele's album "21", the UK's best-selling album of the 21st Century).

Our screen protector raw materials are significantly more expensive than the cheap multipacks you can find on eBay e.t.c., and our pricing reflects this. At the same time, our protectors are significantly cheaper than some competing protector brands sold in retail stores (e.g. the Apple store), yet are the same or better quality.

Can I remove trapped dust/dirt from under the protector?

The adhesive tape dust-removal method mentioned in our instructions is especially effective if used during the initial application process (but less so in the hours afterwards), have you tried this method?

We also strongly recommend that you use a BRANDED adhesive tape to remove dust (e.g. Sellotape in the UK, or Scotch Tape in the US). Using tape from 'dollar stores' achieve a very inferior result (it is less adhesive), and in some cases results in the adhesive from the adhesive tape transferring onto the underside of the screen protector and therefore ruining it. Even if you are using a branded tape, make sure that it was bought within 12 months, and that it has not been exposed to heat/sunlight, as it can have a large impact on its effectiveness.

In addition, please note that In our written product packaging instructions and our video application tutorial we strongly recommend that you use strong adhesive tape if you need to lift the protector. This reduces the ever-present risk of dust/dust/fingerprints sticking to the protector when you lift it, and ensures the edges of the protector are not damaged.

Whatever you do, don't touch the adhesive side with your fingers. Skin cells are incredibly difficult to remove and usually result in blurring of the protector.

Why do your protectors have sticker tabs glued onto them? They created a horrible gluey mess when I removed them. My protector is ruined!

We receive emails like this a few times each week. Please watch our video tutorial and reading our written packaging instructions and it should become immediately obvious as to why you experienced this issue, which only occurs if our instructions are not followed.

Are you aware that on both sides of the protector there is a disposable layer that needs to be removed, and that the purpose of the coloured tabs is to be used to remove those layers?

The sticker tabs should NOT be forcibly removed on their own. They are stuck to the the clear disposable layer using permanent glue, and to remove them you should simply pull downwards to remove both the sticker tab and the clear disposable layer from the protector.

If you try to remove the sticker tab on its own, a horrible sticky mess is created by the permanent glue. Our written/illustrated packaging instructions and our video application tutorial do explicitly mention and illustrate to use the sticker tabs to remove the disposable layers.

If you find yourself in the situation described above, the screen protector itself should still actually be fine, it will just be rather hard to remove the disposable film layer now. We recommend using strong adhesive tape instead of picking at it with your fingernails, which can damage the protector.

After Application

I need to lift the Magicscreen screen protector off the screen. How do I do that without damaging the corner of the protector?

In our written product packaging instructions and our video application tutorial we strongly recommend that you use strong adhesive tape if you need to lift the protector.
This reduces the ever-present risk of dust/dust/fingerprints sticking to the protector when you lift it, and ensures the edges of the protector are not damaged.

Whatever you do, don't touch the adhesive side with your fingers. Skin cells are incredibly difficult to remove and usually result in blurring of the protector.

It has only been a few days/weeks since my screen protector was applied, and already there are loads of scratches. What am I doing wrong?

Our protectors are not designed nor advertised to be 'scratch-proof' (they protect FROM scratches), however we can promise that it is pretty rare that we receive feedback about scratching.

There are two main questions to be answered in order to diagnose the source of the scratching:

1) Did you definitely removed the clear disposable layer at the end of the application process? (it's attached to the blue coloured sticker tab).

As that disposable layer is supposed to be removed, it isn't very scratch resistant whatsoever. See our application tutorial video to see it being removed by simply pulling the sticker tab downwards.

2) Do you by any chance keep your keys in your pocket with your device, or your device in a bag/handbag with lots of other loose items?

Keys (and other hard objects...but primarily keys!) can inflict huge damage on electronic device screens. Even your naked device's glass screen (which is probably made of the allegedly 'unscratchable' 'Gorilla Glass', and therefore more resistant to scratches than any screen protectors on the market), will usually be scratched by keys, as the metallic compounds used to make most keys are harder than Gorilla Glass.

Our protectors are more (or equally) resistant to scratches than all directly competing screen protector products. It would be possible for us to make the protector more resistant to scratches, however this would add friction to its surface, and as a result it 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 the device in question. That is not something we wish our customers to experience, and therefore we do not range 'scratch-proof' protectors.

Our protectors use the more popular 'soft' static cling format, which is very different to the 'hard' format used by Zagg's protectors. You may want to read reviews of the Zagg InvisibleShield to see if it is perhaps a product you would prefer. Zagg's selling point is that their screen protectors are 'unscratchable'. We do not make this claim of our protectors. Our protectors provide benefits in other areas, and therefore the most suitable screen protector type for you really depends on your own individual usage/preferences.

My device screen is made of Gorilla Glass, and is therefore far too strong to require a screen protector. What do you have to say to that?

We do see a few comments like this made by know-it-alls in forums, and on the odd occasion we will receive an email from a customer who is confused because their friend has told them they don't need a screen protector.

If you want to avoid scratches/chips (and you want to significantly reduce the chance of your screen shattering if you drop your phone), you ABSOLUTELY need a screen protector. If you ignore this advice believing you know better, you will regret it. Your friend is not going to compensate you when they are shown to be wrong.

Gorilla glass has a rating of around 6-7 on the 'Hardness Scale', which is similar to glass.

Iron, steel, nickel, lead, gold, silver and all other natural (i.e. unaltered) metals are softer (1-5) than Gorilla Glass, so in theory they should not scratch it. Do a quick Google search and you will see just how many Gorilla Glass screens have been scratched to hell by exposure to e.g. keys and coins in the same pocket. Many keys are made of hardened steel, which has a hardness rating of 7-8, and therefore scratches Gorilla Glass.

Sand contains quartz, which has a hardness rating of 7 and therefore also scratches Gorilla Glass. For example, when sand is in your pockets after a walk on the beach, or when you place your device on the sand during sunbathing.

Diamond has a hardness rating of 10, and therefore a knock from a diamond (e.g. an engagement ring) will inevitably scratch Gorilla Glass.

What can I do to prolong the life of my Magicscreen screen protector?

Our protectors are not designed nor advertised to be 'scratch-proof' (they protect FROM scratches), however we can promise that it is pretty rare that we receive feedback about scratching.

Never keep your keys in your pocket with your device, or your device in a bag/handbag with lots of other loose items. Keys (and other hard objects...but primarily keys!) can inflict huge damage on electronic device screens.

Miscellaneous

I have an issue or question that this troubleshooting guide was not able to fix or answer. How can I contact you directly?

Sure thing, that's no problem. Here is the link to our contact page.
Please be sure to mention the product you ordered, where you ordered it from, and your order number. We require all of this information before we can provide any support.

How do your protectors not lose stickiness if I use adhesive tape or water to remove dust from the underside?

Our protectors are not simply a piece of plastic with glue on the bottom-side. Each protector consists of 3 layers of different material, none of which is an adhesive. The bottom layer of our protectors is made of a premium 'static-cling' silicon material. It allows our protectors to 'cling' firmly to your device screen using a static charge, rather than by using glue.

This is how our protectors leave no markings when removed, and what allows you to be able to dab adhesive tape on their underside (or to carefully wash their underside with water) in order to remove trapped dust bubbles. Whatever you do, don't touch the adhesive side with your fingers. Skin cells are very hard to remove and usually result in blurring of the protector.

Are there particular brands of adhesive tape you recommend using to remove dust?

We strongly recommend that you use a BRANDED adhesive tape to remove dust (e.g. Sellotape in the UK, or Scotch Tape in the US). Using tape from 'dollar stores' achieve a very inferior result (it is less adhesive), and in some cases results in the adhesive from the adhesive tape transferring onto the underside of the screen protector and therefore ruining it. Even if you are using a branded tape, make sure that was bought within 12 months, and that it has not been exposed to heat/sunlight, as it can have a large impact on its effectiveness.

In addition, please note that In our written product packaging instructions and our video application tutorial we strongly recommend that you use strong adhesive tape if you need to lift the protector. This reduces the ever-present risk of dust/dust/fingerprints sticking to the protector when you lift it, and ensures the edges of the protector are not damaged.

Whatever you do, don't touch the adhesive side with your fingers. Skin cells are incredibly difficult to remove and usually result in blurring of the protector.

Are there any cases that are NOT compatible with screen protectors?

Due to the now mainstream use of screen protectors, most of the respected accessory brands design their cases in a way that ensures that they will not interfere with screen protectors. There are however two case formats that can mess up (any brand of) screen protectors:

1) The 'Slider' format of cases is notorious for messing up screen protectors from most specialist screen protector brands. These cases overlap the edge of the screen, and fit the screen so tightly that they can often make contact with the screen protector (to such an extent that it pushes up the protector). Some of the best known 'slider' cases are the InCase Slider, CaseCrown Glider and Seido Innocase II.

2) Some cases made of TPU or silicone can also push up screen protectors, as they can also overlap the front of the screen too tightly. Many sellers on eBay/Amazon sell these types of cases, and it is usually only the cheap unbranded versions that create this problem.

I want to use a case with my screen protector. Is there a particular case you recommend?

It really depends on whether you want slim/subtle protection or rugged/heavyweight protection. All MediaDevil cases are designed specifically to be compatible with screen protectors.

- For slim/subtle protection, you will be interested in our Grafikcase Ultra Slim edition case (which can be personalised with your own image, and is available in a range of artist designs).

- For rugged/heavyweight protection you will be interested in our Grafikcase Dual-Layer Tough edition case.

Why do your protectors cost more than unbranded screen protectors? Surely all screen protectors are the same, just with different brands charging different prices?

They are absolutely not all the same…far from it! Screen protectors are meant to be clear and subtle looking, so it is easy for some people to assume that just because you cannot see an obvious difference upon first glance, that there is no difference between screen protector brands.

The higher relative price of a decent screen protector relates to things such as lack of peeling, greater clarity, and no added friction.

You will see many (many) positive comparisons of our products to cheap unbranded multi-pack options. We are BlackBerry's screen protector partner, we were awarded the UK Government's 2011 Business Innovation Award, and one of our iPhone screen protector packs was the fourth 'most 5-star rated product' on the entire Amazon.co.uk website in 2011 (Amazon's own Kindles were positions 1-3, and position 6 was Adele's album "21", the UK's best-selling album of the 21st Century).

At the same time, our protectors are significantly cheaper than some competing protector brands sold in retail stores (e.g. the Apple store), yet are the same or better quality.

What is the difference between 'soft' static cling protectors (like MediaDevil's), and 'hard' scratch resistant adhesive protectors like the Zagg InvisibleShield.

There two formats of screen protector available in the accessories market today that account for the vast majority of sales:

1) 'soft' static-cling protectors, e.g. MediaDevil's Magic Screen protector. This is the most popular screen protector format.

2) 'hard' (scratch-proof) protectors, e.g. Zagg's InvisibleShield

Both formats come with their individual pros and cons, it really comes down to what you feel best suits your needs.

- 'Hard' (aka 'wet') screen protectors are very scratch resistant, but very hard to apply and non-reusable.

They are also quite rubbery to touch and can affect the user's experience with their device (especially a touch-screen one). They also have a habit of acquiring an "orange-peel" tinge due to ongoing exposure to natural UV-rays from sunlight.

- Soft (aka 'dry') 'static-cling' protectors are what most premium screen protector brands and retailers (including Apple) sell.

There is a vast difference in quality between the different static-cling protectors available. Thankfully our protectors are right at the top of the quality spectrum. Static-cling protectors are by no means 'scratch-proof' (instead, they protect FROM scratches). This is for good reason which we shall explain, however with regular/considerate treatment of the device there should be very little issues in this area.

The best static cling protectors (including our own) have three layers, the bottom of which is made from silicon. You will see these layers illustrated on your product packaging.

This silicon layer is what allows the protector to stick to the screen using static cling, rather than by using an adhesive. It means the protector is easy to reposition, clean, and remove without leaving residue behind. Because static cling protectors do not use the rubbery scratch resistant material used by 'hard' protectors (like the Zagg InvisibleShield), it means the material also feels much nicer to the touch.

The only downside of the static-cling format is that unlike with the Zagg protector, if you try to scratch it with a sharp object it WILL scratch. In normal everyday circumstances you should not experience scratching however. Naturally your device should always be kept away from keys and other sharp objects, but I am sure you are aware of that already.

It would be possible for us to make our protectors more resistant to scratches, however this would remove the softness and smoothness of the surface, and as a result it would not feel like a naked screen. We don't want to reduce the enjoyment that our customers get from their devices, and that is why we do not sell a scratch-proof protector.

We can promise you that one of the key benefits of Magic Screen over unbranded screen protectors (and many well known brands), is that is it much more resistant to scratches. Our material costs are much higher than those used by many competing brand as a result of this.

Here are a few reviews from one of our Amazon UK product pages, which show how our protectors compare to inferior 'static cling' protectors. This gives you an idea of just how big the difference is between a 'good' static-cling protector, and a bad one:
