Magicscreen Screen Protector: Matte Clear edition


MediaDevil's Magicscreen back protector - Dual-tone (Glossy/Matte) Edition protects your iPhone 5/5s back from scratches and leaves no markings when removed.
IMPORTANT: This screen protector is only for the iPhone 5/5S models. It will not fit the iPhone 5C.



Important:
This special dual-tone back protector allows you to protect your iPhone 5/5s back whilst maintaining its dual-tone (glass/aluminium) appearance. Glossy textured material is used to protect the two glass sections, and Matte material is used to protect the aluminium section.
In order to achieve this, the protector consists of three separate sections that are applied to the device individually.  This also ensures that there is no lifting between the two texture intersections (which does occur if a one-piece protector is used, due to the aluminium section being slightly raised).

Features:
- Easy to apply: no cutting required.
- Does not tear or fold during application
- Thin, strong and rigid
- Fingerprint reduction
- Anti-glare protection
- 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

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

When Magicscreen is applied to this device, the device is still completely compatible with our Magicwand capacitive touch screen stylus.

Pack Contents:
2 x Magicscreen™ BACK screen protectors (each constructed of three separate pieces [top/middle/bottom])
1 x Microfibre cleaning cloth
1 x smoothing card

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.

Very good protector/film. Review by Zippy
Overall
When fitted, you can hardly tell!

Take your time to fit this and work in a dust free zone as much as possible under good lighting. I used a good quality paint brush to remove all dust particles before applying the film.

Don't be put off that this is a 3-piece film set as once all 3 peices are fitted, you cannot tell.

If you get dust trapped, peel back and dab some sticky tape, it works a treat to remove the dust! (Posted on 15/09/2013)
Another' great product. Review by David
Overall
I was initially a bit sceptical about the three piece design of this protector. However, the pieces are cut to exactly the right size, and I had no trouble getting them all on, nicely lined up, and with no bubbles! The result looks really good, at first glance it'd be difficult to notice the protector at all.

Another great MediaDevil product! (Posted on 14/09/2013)
Nice design. Review by Shujat
Overall
Very good idea to cut the protector in three parts to apply for different areas on the back of your phone.very easy to apply.finest product. (Posted on 12/08/2013)
very effective. Review by Billy Bunter
Overall
when you open the pack and see the 3 separate pieces, especially the 2 small glossy end pieces, it doesn't look an easy job..... but watch the video first, read the instructions ( keep it clean and apply the middle one first) and within 5-10 minutes it's done and is surprisingly effective gloss/matte/gloss finish, just like the original back. There is a minimal observable difference in finish around the IPhone engraving (-1 star to be pedantic), but overall it is an excellent product. Top job ! (Posted on 30/07/2013)

very clever idea. Review by Tasos
Overall
Very clever idea for the 3 piece screen protector. It seems that nothing is applied on the back . Great protection of the sensitive back of iphone 5!!! (Posted on 21/03/2013)
Premium Finish. Review by Michael
Overall
The protectors for the iPhone are brilliant. The centre piece on the back of the iPhone, like the rest of the phone tbh, looks like there isn't a protector on ... Will be buying more in the future that's for sure! (Posted on 26/02/2013)
