Magicscreen Screen Protector: Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) edition


MediaDevil's Magicscreen screen protector: Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) edition protects your screen from scratches, reduces screen glare, and leaves no markings when removed. It does not reduce the touch sensitivity of the device screen, and does not affect the light/proximity sensors under the screen.



Features:
- Easy to apply: no cutting required.
- Does not tear or fold during application
- Thin, strong and rigid
- Reduces screen glare
- Leaves no markings when removed
- Bonds firmly to device screen
- Easily removed and re-applied
- Protects against scratches
- Trapped dust can be removed using adhesive tape (see our application tutorial video)


An essential accessory that is also available in Crystal Clear (Invisible) and Privacy editions.

Our Magicpotion screen cleaning solution can be used to clean your device screen before applying your screen protector:
When Magicscreen is applied to this device, the device is still completely compatible with our Magicwand touch screen stylus.

Important:
Matte material protectors produce a 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'.
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 unavoidable.
If you require a perfectly 'crystal clear' screen to enjoy your high resolution screen to its full extent, we strongly recommend purchasing our (glossy surface textured) Crystal Clear edition instead.

Pack Contents:
2 x Magicscreen™ screen protector (FRONT): Matte Clear edition
1 x Microfibre cleaning cloth
1 x smoothing card

Your satisfaction is really important to us, and we will do our best to help ensure that you are a happy MediaDevil customer.

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?

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.

Excellent. Review by Jeff
Overall
I tried several screen protectors for my iPhone 5 before landing on a listing for MediaDevil on Amazon's website. Honestly, I was skeptical at first, the price seemed too low compared to others I had already tried. I tried a Zagg protector at first and took it off a couple of months later to wash and reapply, but it never adhered the way it did the first time. I tried several more with great disappointment. Then I tried the MediaDevil system and was completely amazed at how well it adhered and stays in place. I will never use any other protectors again. They are cut well to fit the screens, and the stay adhered without lifting. I really encourage you to try these protectors, you will never go back to another brand. (Posted on 16/09/2014)
It's the best. Review by Marie-Christine
Overall
Well, we tried quite a few screen protectors in the past for our iPhone 4. And MediaDevil had the best of them all.

So when we bought the new iPhone 5S, there was no question where else to get it.

We bought quite a few of them too so that we have spares, and sometimes give one to friends. They get convinced quick too.

Matt screen protector for iPhone 5 applying tip! . Review by Siforce
Overall
Another great product from Media Devil!
I have been using there products for sometime now which i cant fault great customer service and the sweets are nice too.

Easy to apply after a little trial and error! a little trick I use is to run the hot shower for a couple of mins whilst closing the bathroom door to keep the steam in and the dust down.

Once your ready to apply your screen protector turn shower off and wipe your devices screen with the cloth applied and your ready to go : )

Really good screen protector. Review by Claire
Overall
These screen protectors come in packs of two, which is good since I ruined the first one on a learning curve (more related to the user than the product or the instructions). It was hard to clean the screen completely so as not to get any blemishes under the protector (perhaps include a cleaning screen wipe as well as the polishing cloth in the pack?). Despite these hiccups, the screen protector is great, doesn't reduce touch response, and doesn't dim the clarity too much. Great product! (Posted on 25/03/2013)

Great product! Amazing Customer service!!. Review by Bevan
Overall
Upon buying the two protectors for my iPhone 5 both front and back I was sceptical about the pricing! However the product is worth every penny spent, the back protector is fiddly to apply at first however once you know how to after the first attempt it is a lot easier, I managed to get air bubbles and misalign the protector a few times. So I emailed the customer service and they sent a detailed guide and even sent out a new pack of protectors to me!
Overall a great product would definitely recommend over any over brand, sensible price, fantastic product and amazing customer service!
I can't fault it,
Thanks media devil! (Posted on 12/03/2013)
