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?

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.

If Carlsberg made screen protectors. Review by Spanner
Overall
I have had many a phone over the years and with the recent purchase of an iPad thought I would again attempt the impossible. Screen protection without bubbles. All I can say is after following the online instructions I have the crystal clear edition installed perfectly.
I don't know what kind of voodoo you use media devil? but it works and it was effortless. And I will be ordering versions for my iPhone and iPod.
GREAT STUFF! (Posted on 06/01/2011)
Great iPad screen protector!. Review by Ken
Overall
Great iPad screen protector! It has the most helpful video tutorial ever that I manage to apply it dust free and without any bubbles! Couldn't be more glad I got this product. An excellent product overall and value for money. (Posted on 29/12/2010)
Finger Prints? What Finger Prints???. Review by Ollie B
Overall
PD impresses once again!
Aside from their product, their customer service/communication is outstanding, they really do leave others in their dust! Why can't every business provide this level of service?

As for the product, I challenge anyone to find better! The product is superb!
I chose the matte protector for my iPad as I already have one installed on my iPhone and I am so glad I did. Again it's as if the 'phone devil' magic'd away my finger prints - you just don't see them anymore, well at least not on anything protected by the matte screen protector.

I found application to be easy peasy and it was on first time, almost bubble free.
Pd provide a credit card sized calendar which doubles up as a 'bubble remover' which used properly does exactly that! If you can't get to grips with it for whatever reason, just practise with the first one because pd provide 2 in the pack, which isn't advertised, presumably for this reason? So for me it's handy as a spare!

If I were pushed to find something to moan about ( as that is what reviewers/critics are meant to do) I would say that is a shame that the bubble remover's calendar isn't for 2011 as we are almost on top of it and I see little need in having one for 2010 but seeing as it's primary purpose is to remove bubbles, that really is simply a case of digging for something to moan about.

In truth you can't moan about pd! From a superb product to outstanding levels of customer service to free sweets and not just any old sweet but free Haribo's, the best sweet you can get! there is nothing more to say than PhoneDevil are the BEST!

Buy this product! You'll be glad you did! (Posted on 17/12/2010)
A "must buy" for iPad. Review by Christine Pepper
Overall
My iPad already had a scratch on the screen and a friend suggested I try the Phonedevil screen protector. I chose the matte version and I am delighted with it. The protector seems to have reduced the effect of the scratch as well as eliminating the feel of it when touching the screen. The matte version helps with reducing finger marks on the screen and the glare is eliminated. I use my iPad a lot to read using the Kindle app and I am so pleased I chose the matte version as reflections on the screen are no more. A real must for the iPad.
Applying the Phonedevil was very straightforward and I got it first time. You do need to be organised on a table and as dust free as possible but viewing the video on You Tube helped.
Well done Phonedevil, an excellent product. (Posted on 15/12/2010)
Excellent product. Review by John
Overall
Recommended by someone who has their iphone protector. It does what it say on the package. When I need another protector this will be my choice. Excellent product at a good price. (Posted on 02/11/2010)
Great protector . Review by Jose
Overall
With the purchase of the anti glare I have pretty much bought all the protectors available from magic screen. All these products are probably the best the market has to offer!!! It's a matter of preference but regardless of which one you purchase chances are you will be satisfied. If you are like me and does research on the products before buying look these products over. Guaranteed you will love them no matter which one you buy. (Posted on 02/10/2010)
Good protector. Review by influenceuk
Overall
This is a great screen protector for the iPad for it's price. The quality is very high, and i personally feel it works great!
Had a few issues with installation, thank god they provide two in the pack. I still seem to have a bubble near the bottom edge of the device that just wont seem to go. Other than than this for the price i think its pretty much worth it. (Posted on 01/10/2010)
