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.

Excellent product with a very high quality feel. Review by 23duff
Overall
This is an excellent product for my iPhone 3GS. I had a screen protector on my old iPod Touch however this is in a different league. I opted for the anti glare option and the feel of the screen is lovely.

My wife also has the same model phone and as soon as she saw this she asked that I get her one too so I will be buying another one of these pretty soon!

With regards to the Customer Service, could you please include 3 sweets in my envelope as my wife took one!!!! LOL! (Posted on 17/02/2010)
Perfect! . Review by jonwatson87
Overall
Brilliant screen protector! Certainly the best one I've ever used.

This matte edition is excellent and really does drastically reduce glare from your screen. The touchscreen responses are completely undiminished and the interface is more tactile for having less friction and resistance than my iPhone screen.

As with all screen protectors, especially matte ones, there is a very small amount of distortion, though this is usually only noticeable when viewing a white screen. A very worthwhile trade off in my opinion! Everything is still easily readable, with the added plus of being able to see the screen in bright conditions!

As far as application goes the supplied kit is excellent. As we all know, phones with large screens can be a bit trickier to get lined up properly, especially if you want to avoid getting dust, dirt and grime trapped during the lifting and reapplying. Amazingly the quality of this product actually allowed me to gently nudge tiny bits of hair etc off of the underside of the screen protector using the supplied plastic smoother, with no ill effect to the screen protector itself!

It did take me a few minutes to get it just right, but once I was done the results were flawless. Perfect application, no trapped dust, dirt or grime, drastic glare reduction and much less attractive for those pesky fingerprints.

You can't get much better than PhoneDevil! They've made a repeat customer out of me! =D (Posted on 16/02/2010)
Fantastic , Would buy again. Review by Jayda James
Overall
This screen cover is fantastic, i even prefer it on my screen. My 32 GB iphone needed a screen cover, this was the more expensive option, but i thought i would give it a go, i have to say i prefer the feel of the phone on my fingers when i slide it across. It greatly reduces fingerprints on my screen and is great when viewing in the sun. I'm going to order one soon for my Ipod touch. Thanks phonedevil. (Posted on 07/02/2010)
Best of the best. Review by Daniel
Overall
This is the best screen protector i ever gotten for my ipod touch. i used to have other screen protector claiming to have anti-glare/finger print effect but it didn't. When i heard about phonedevil through youtube, i decided to give it a try as there's alot of good reviews about it. when i received it, i was blown away with it's magnificent looks and effect. it's worth every cent and i would highly recommend those people with trouble finding the perfect screen protector for their ipod/iphone.

Wow. Review by iLava Lamp
Overall
I got one of these for my iPod touch as fingerprints were an annoying problem. Now that I have one if these, there is an amazing reduction in fingerprints. At first I was a little put off by the price but it was worthe it as I feel this will last me a least a year. I am going to tell all my friends about this. (Posted on 02/02/2010)
LOVE IT!. Review by Jaydee
Overall
I just got this in the mail. It was easy to apply and fit perfectly!! This has eliminated fingerprint smudge marks on my screen and definitely keeps my phone screen clean. I love how I got an e-mail which acknowledged my purchase, shows that they care for their customers. Added bonus, I got two pieces of candy!! :) Great product, I want to get the privacy edition when this one needs to be replaced in the future. Highly recommend!! (Posted on 16/01/2010)
Simply the BEST. Review by GiantSized
Overall
I have used many screen protectors over the past few years and I can honestly say Phone Devil have done it, they have created a product that is effortless to install, 100% bubble free (as long as you clean the screen first), and doesn't show wear marks like all of the other protectors on the market.

The delivery was extremely fast. I had to contact their Customer Service with reagard to an issue with my order but let me say that this is the most efficient and understanding company I have ever dealt with. Phone Devil has a customer for life based on the service I received and I will promote their company to anyone I believe can benefit from their products.

Thank you Phone Devil !!! (Posted on 16/01/2010)
Best screen protection i have used. Review by Hal

Hi all to that read this.

Review
Iphone 3G phonedevil screen protector matte edition

Let me start off by saying super super fast delivery i ordered from Play around 4 ish yesterday and got up to find it in my hands so thank for your very good delivery.

Now the screen protector itself i have used many many screens before this one mainly the cheap 1s apart from the invisibleSHIELD which just fell apart and showed all the dust on the side of the screen. I came across the phonedevil one as i was shopping about and thought the price is good and saw it had good reviews.

They all were right...the protector fits my iphone bang on its easy to get the air bubbles out and does not take long to fit.
The Matte one i got has a great feel to it and is very smooth it does what it says. Anyone thinking about getting a screen protector i say do not get any cheap one pay a bit more and get yourself a phonedevil one 100% (Posted on 15/01/2010)
