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.

Works as Described. Review by Anthony
Overall
Easy application. Looks great, as if it came with the phone. Matte Clear Edition looks exactly as I expected. (Posted on 20/07/2010)
Easy Application, Smooth Feel, Looks Great!. Review by Sciolist
Overall
Wow, what a great value. The protector went on so much more easily than others I've tried. There were maybe two small bubbles that were easily banished with a quick swipe of the included smoothing card. I even reapplied it twice to straighten it by .000012 mm (obsessive perfectionist) without any problem.
And the surface is so incredibly smooth compared to my former protector and to a popular protector on a friend's iPhone 3G.
I was so impressed that I ordered a second one which I trimmed for the LCD of my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 camera. Cuts glare and you can't even tell it's there!
On my initial order I had an issue with the ordering process but it was quickly resolved and addressed by the owner of PhoneDevil who responded to me via email.
I've now recommended PhoneDevil to another iPod Touch user as well as to two iPhone 4 owners. All were impressed with my Matte Clear Magic Screen protector. (Posted on 10/07/2010)
Best Screen Proctector- Hands Down. Review by LakeyaJ
Overall
This is an awesome screen protector. I am a person that goes through many screen protectors (because I apply them) and then hate the way they look afterwards....and after a day or two I woud peel them off.
But this one is not coming off my phone (at least not by me). It looks good on my Iphone and you can not tell it is even on the phone. This company is wonderful.
I ordered mine through Amazon USA, but just wanted everyone to know this company rocks. I am on their site now getting some more protectors this time for my Ipod Touch. (Posted on 21/05/2010)

Great!!!!. Review by Sam
Overall
The item arrived within 24 hours of ordering which is fantastically brilliant, the matte screen is just what i wanted and now i will be ordering one for my fiances iphone too! Great product and company! (Posted on 30/03/2010)
Just a great porduct.. Review by largy64
Overall
First off the service I've received was great ordered on a Friday afternoon, arrived Saturday mornings post out standing, I did however order mine through Amazon.co.uk.

Now onto the product itself, this is the frist time I have tried a matte clear screen protector and I am not disappointed, true I have to get used to the image not being quite as clear as with a crystal clear one but hey it's good to try something new.

The instructions are nice and clear, one tip don't remove the second proctive peice until you have removed all the air bubble that way you won't scratch the screen protector, I have to say this was one of the best installs I have done I had virtually no air bubbles any I did have were easily removed.

The matte clear looks great on my iPhone 3g. This won't be the last time I buy from this company the product is just great I love it !!!!!.

If I get an iPod touch I will be straight onto their web site or Amazon.co.uk and purchase more screen protectors for that iPod no worries !!!.

I know I will end up buying more for my iPhone because of the quality of the product I am now a massive fan of this product and can't praise it high enough.

Fantastic..

Best buy for iphone ever

AMAZING!. Review by Matty
Overall
Definitely the best screen protector on the market. Delivered within one working day, loved the idea of 2 sweets too. I can barely notice that it is there, just make sure the screen is clean and fingerprint free before applying. You wouldn't know it was there unless you saw the cutout for the speaker. Fingerprints are greatly reduced and it feels great to touch. The anti glare is good too. Thanks so much Phone Devil! Will be recommending everyone, i hope you make a cover for the iPad! :) (Posted on 20/02/2010)
