Most people out there choose a variety of ways to protect their iPhones. Some like silicone cases, some like leather cases, and some like protective-film cases. So far I’ve reviewed BestSkinsEver, BodyGuardz, PhantomSkinz, Case Mate Clear Armor, and ZAGG’s invisibleSHIELD. I can’t tell you what is the “best” as everyone has their own personal tastes. However, the one and only film I’ve had on my first gen iPhone and iPhone 3G is the invisibleSHIELD.
Just recently ZAGG has revised and improved the back piece of their invisibleSHIELD. In particular they improved the corner pieces for a better fit and added separate top and bottom bezel pieces. They sent me their new improved back piece for review and I installed it last night. It is is much better than their previous versions!
For starters, the back corners have changed to a different design. On the old design, there was too much “plastic” in the corners which would result in tiny “pimples” being raised in the corners. These little pimples would be tiny but if you kept your iPhone in your pocket, the lint accumulation would make it grow bigger. With the new design, there are now cutouts to eliminate this problem altogether. The removal of some plastic will now decrease the chances of the shield getting caught or stuck when in your pocket and peeling.
Check out the following pics to see the changed design:
The new design is now shipping. Take a good look at my pictures above and make your own decision. It’s been three days since I’ve had the revised invisibleSHIELD installed and there are NO signs of any raised edges! I’m a happy camper.
Some people don’t like these plastic film protectors because it’s hard to install. Honestly though, it’s the best way to protect your iPhone 3G from scratches without hiding its beauty. The secret is in the install. You gotta have patience, patience, and patience. Make sure to overspray during the install and reapply if you mess up.
