Magicscreen Screen Protector: Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) edition


MediaDevil's Magicscreen screen protector: Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) edition protects your screen from scratches, reduces 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
- 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 Privacy 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.

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.

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

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?

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.

Perfect!. Review by emmacy
Overall
I would definitely recommend this product, it's a cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive brands and looks great in comparison. A little tricky to apply to the phone but the instructions helped a lot and the free shipping to Cyprus was also a plus! (Posted on 13/06/2011)
Love my Magic Screen Protector!. Review by Sharose
Overall
I really love this screen protector. More than protecting the face of the iPhone 4, I wanted something that would reduce the amount of finger print wiping that I was constantly doing! This screen protector does give you a flat, less glossy face, but the finger prints are practically non-existent, and I think the face of the phone looks great. The screen does not interfere at all with phone use. I thought the application of the screen protector was very easy - went on perfectly first time. As long as you take the time to read the directions and then follow them, you should have no problems. My only issue (the reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5) is that the edges of the protector are slightly lifting in some spots, after only about a month of use. I do have a case around the phone that covers most of those areas, but still . . . (Posted on 11/06/2011)
A great product. Review by Casper
Overall
Not only does it make the iPhone 4 screen look so much better (i'm not a fan of glossy screens), it makes touching the screen so much easier. My finger glides across it so much smoother than the plain iPhone screen. Really easy to apply and remove. I will be buying these as long as I have an iPhone.

p.s. They gave me sweets in the delivery packet! (Posted on 01/05/2011)
Superior product. Review by Chiguy66
Overall
I'll admit that I was doubtful when I read the reviews on this product. Up until now, I found advanced calculus to be easier than applying a screen protector without making a mess out of the whole thing. Then I found this one. Wow, couldn't have been any easier. Got it perfect the first time. Love the matte look, too. Very easy to keep clean and no glare although it will reduce the clarity of your retina display just a bit. This is a quality product and the customer service is second to none. Order with confidence. You won't be disappointed! (Posted on 25/04/2011)
Excellent product. Review by suebee
Overall
I would definitely recommend this product. It's a little tricky to apply to the phone but what screen protector isn't? I love the matte surface.

Great product at the most competitive price. Review by Konstantinos Panagiotopoulos
Overall
I was looking for a new mate screen protector for my 4 and bumped into this one by chance in amazon.I wasn't really convinced at the beginning cause of the low price,in conjunction to similar products.But the reviews were amazing,thorough and convincing and that's the reason I'm taking the time to write one here.
I couldn't be more satisfied.Same excellent material as the most expensive solutions I've found and of course the full monty in accessories with aplying card and microfiber cloth.
And wait til you hear this.For almost or truly half the price of the aforementioned competitive products you get 2 screen protectors instead of one.
Along with excellent support this makes it the best purchase for my iPhone 4 yet.
Do not miss out on this one! (Posted on 02/04/2011)
Exceeded expectations. Review by Elizabeth Meyer
Overall
Everything about my Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) Apple iPhone 4 screen protector is fabulous! The product itself is everything I expected and the customer service and shipping from PhoneDevil was superb. I could not have asked for a better outcome! Excellent value! (Posted on 02/04/2011)
Again, better than the others. Review by Neyyire Pinar Ersoz
Overall
My first Phone Devil screen protector was a Matte Clear (Anti-Glare) Edition for my iPhone 3GS. I purchased that one after reading many reviews and I am very happy with it. This one was for a friend because he tried many screen protectors and all of them ended with bubbles. I insisted on getting this product and now I know that this product is really different. No bubbles. It can't be just a coincidence.
Pros: Easy application, no bubbles, smooth feel.
Cons: Screen resolution is not as good as before. (Posted on 07/03/2011)
Great!. Review by MikeD
Overall
I've tried literally every screen protector out there, and nothing compares to these. They're of wonderful quality, and were very easy to apply with no bubbling! In hindsight, I should've gone for the crystal clear edition because the pixelation on the Matte version annoys me at times, but I can live with it!

Great protectors and great customer service! I was also pleasantly surprised with how quickly these arrived from the UK (I live in Seattle, WA and it only took a week!). (Posted on 26/02/2011)
Good quality. Review by Rene
Overall
This is my 2nd screen protector and I loved the one for the 3GS. That one is on my wives phone and besides from some minor scratches is still in good shape.

Mine for the 4 is looking good and takes away the glare perfectly and feels smooth when using it. Only downside is when reading small print it's a little less readable then without protector. But I tried/seen others and they all have the same, guess that's the price for protection. (Posted on 23/02/2011)
