Magicscreen Screen Protector: Privacy edition


MediaDevil's Magicscreen screen protector: Privacy edition protects your screen against scratches, and uses high-quality Privacy filter material for your ultimate security.

We use premium two-way privacy material specifically designed to allow up-down viewing of the screen when held in a regular vertical position. This means that when held in widescreen mode (e.g. for gaming, or for use as a sat-nav), you can still view the screen during left-right gaming tilt-movements, or whilst driving your vehicle.

The Matte (Anti-Glare) surface texture reduces fingerprints and 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
- Prevents onlookers from viewing confidential information
- Fingerprint reduction
- 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 Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) 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.

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Does exactly what it says!. Review by Zippy
Overall
Brilliant protector and privacy screen film. Quality is fault free, and is pricision cut to fit perfectly.

All I would say is take your time when you apply this and work in a dust free zone as much as possible. Cleaning you phone alone with cloths will remove all debris but to completely remove all dust particles, I used a good quality paint brush to brush everything away before applying the film.

Also, work under good lighting to see what you are doing.

If you do manage to get dust particles trapped, the sticky tape advice works a treat, just peel back the film back to reveal the dust particle, dab the sticky tape to the film and peel away and the dust will be gone! (Posted on 15/09/2013)

It's brilliant. Review by Dom
Overall
When I was ordering this product I had had just one thing in mind: privacy. Needless to say, I got privacy or else I wouldn't be giving this five stars, but it was only once the protector arrived that I noticed all of the little things about this piece of plastic that made me love it so much. For starters, it doesn't use an adhesive to hold on to the screen so you can replace it and remove it as many times as you like without any detrimental effects, secondly it makes the screen incredibly easy to clean with just the included screen cloth: on a plain screen I found that the slightest scratch would show immediately and stains like chocolate were remarkably hard to remove without leaving some noticeable residue which further tarnished the look of what should be a very sleek phone. Finally, let me talk about the look and feel of the cover, when you touch it, you will notice it does not feel anything like glass, if I were to describe the feeling of the cover I'd say think of the plastic shell of an Xbox controller or PC keyboard keys except a fair bit smoother, as for looks, all I'll say is there are some fine diagonal lines across the protector which are only visible when the screen is on which I could see being a nuisance to a few people but I imagine it'd pass with time. If I had to complain about one thing though, the hole for the home button is slightly larger than the button itself which may have some practical application but I find it detracts from an otherwise seamless appearance.

10/10. Review by Estevon Dusek
Overall
I love this privicy screen, it is awesome and would recommend it to anyone else seeking a new privicy screen. It may take time to get to you if you are out of the UK, but it is worth the wait. (Posted on 26/01/2013)

Excellent Product! The best that i have used! (Posted on 19/01/2013)
Great screen protector!. Review by Lan Anh
Overall
I got nothing bad to say about the screen except for if you have a white iPhone like I do, then it might be a bad idea to purchase it unless you don't care that you have a white phone and a gray front screen (I have gotten used to it and it looks different compared to other iPhones now that it has a gray front screen). Otherwise it works like it should and if you have a black iPhone then it's definitely not noticeable except for the screen is matte ;) (Posted on 15/01/2013)
Excellent top class screen protector. Review by CARL
Overall
I am a returning customer as the products i have used in the past have been world class. I recently brought new iPhones for the whole family and then ordered the privacy edition screen protectors for them. They are extremely well made, and the finish is precise with a tight fit. The materials used are professional materials, and can honestly say the privacy edition actually works. Look no further for a world class iPhone screen protector. Now to get them all iPad screen protectors!!!! (Posted on 15/01/2013)
Great Product. Review by Feejus
Overall
I have used Mediadevil and I have to say their product is quality.

* Applying the Screenprotector is just so simple and if you just makes sure that you follow instruction and make sure you clean you screen you will not get any air bubble.

* Quality is top notch as the protector is just almost invisible. Cleaning it is very simple as well. One more thing which should be pointed out is the fact that it does not scratch. I paid over £10 for another brand of screen protector and the protector had scratch on it after a few days. Not with MediaDevil. It looks just like you have applied it 1 min ago.

* Removal
Once you remove it there is no sticky stuff on there you don't even notice you had a screenprotector on. The phone looks like new.


One word on the Privacy Edition, it is a bit thicker than any other protector i have used. Just so you are aware of it. (Posted on 09/01/2013)
Worth the money. Review by Wade
Overall
High quality and works as advertised. Watch the videos on YouTube on how to install it correctly and remove dust particles. I used this brand on my iPhone 4 and was so glad when it finally came out for iPhone 5. Don't skimp if you want a quality privacy screen that won't annoy you. (Posted on 20/12/2012)
