    Well I'm having no luck with screen protectors what so ever. First one I had was xtreme guard, which was just terrible. Felt like glue trying to push the squeegee over it and microfiber cloth just stuck on it when i was trying to push the bubbles out. Then I tried skinomi since they have a lifetime warranty on it, buying one for iphone 5, tablet and my lumia 1520. Thought they were top grade from the reviews every where i looked. Well the iphone 5 went on good, except is scratched to hell with microfiber cloth and wont clean properly, has odd streaks all over it like someone took a pencil eraser to it. The tablet has water marks all underneath the screen protector and the leather flip cass sticks to the protector and leaves an imprint. The Lumia 1520 has tiny bubbles all in the middle of the screen that won't come out. Attempting to remove and try again has always just resulted in dust/lint getting in the screen protectors so i don't both. I bought a 3 pack for my s4 from spiegen, classic screen protector (not this new orange peel water required contact lens feeling crap) and i get them on perfectly straight with not bubbles/particles.

    So I ask, has anyone found a nice standard plastic screen protector that isn't this "zagg" style I guess they call it?

    Lol I don't need anything to clean the screen, its just the screen protector itself is that bad. I even use the "solution" it came with to try and clean it. I think it says a lot about the quality when you use a microfiber cloth to clean the screen and it scratches it.

    Surprised you had an issue with the Xtreme Guard. I'm using it for the 1520 and it's working pretty good. Stays in place, stays clean, and well I imagine it's protecting because no scratches yet haha

    Hi, I am using GadgetShieldz and I think it is pretty good, application is not that simple being a wet application but 100% better than Zagg.
    There is no drag when I move my finger and clarity is perfect.
    It is cheap and free shipping worldwide.

    I got my 1520 in a trade, so it already had the screen protector on it. I am unsure of the brand, but it is a hard sheet, not the soft rubberized skins. My issue with it is that the edges have pulled up from the beveled glass all the way around the screen. So I have a thin crisp dust frame around the screen. I want to replace the protector with something that covers the bevel, or will not pull up.

    I prefer wet application protectors. I have been a long time fan of Skinomi products, to include the full body skin. However, I am looking for more feedback before I go with it. So, im bumping this thread up.

    epid says he likes it, but I hate it. Like I said, I bought one for each three different devices and each of them gave me issues. I'm great at properly installing them as well. Previous phones I would put them on perfectly, its only now that i've ran into sp problems with this rubber feeling.

    I've used Zagg for my 1020 and ArmorSuit for my 1520 and both have been great. ArmorSuit is a lot cheaper than Zagg and both have lifetime replacement warranty. Zagg's replacement process is very easy, because you don't have to talk to anyone. Just log on to their website and order the new one. You just pay for shipping. I haven't done a replacement with ArmorSuit yet, but I've read that its not that easy to get a replacement.

    With either shield, I've found that using plenty of the provided spray helps you get it lined up a whole lot easier. And both shields will actually shrink and any bubble you cant get out will be disappear after a few days.

    Good feedback, but still all over the board with different brands. Hopefully people keep updating their experiences and we can get some clear winners pinned out.

    One more option: ScreenPatronus. Been using them forever on several devices dating back to Palm, and use them on all my phones today. First thing I order after getting phone.

    Good quality, affordable price and good customer service. It's a small operation as far as I can tell (I'm not affiliated with them in any way).

    They have a web storefront and an eBay shop. Just Google the name.

    Well its only one from my experience, you've tried 3 different ones from Skinomi on different devices so maybe youre onto something. I haven't felt the screen as rubbery after installing.

    I have an illumishield for my 2520 now also. Really happy with it, old school plastic screen protector, perfect fit (does not shortchange the edges due to the curved glass and does not hang too far over them ), does not scratch easily, oil and fingerprint resistant, crystal clear, smooth glide (better than the glass imo), inexpensive, super easy to install, and best of all ..... Lifetime replacements. Set of 3 for the 1520 is around 6-7$ with shipping

    Should give them a try, I think its exactly what the op is looking for.

    Side note- it does cover the proximity sensor- but auto brightness and the proximity sensor when on calls works flawlessly so far with mine.

    The one con, but its a small one as I've seen waaaaaaaaay worse, in direct sunlight it does take away the antiglare a bit from the clear black display, like if you reflect the sun into it the light burst rainbows a tiny bit, but like I said its very minimal compared to most.


    I am also not affiliated with illumishield, just a very pleased customer.

    I use IQ Shield LIQuid Skin for most of my phones and I have been very impressed by them. You have to install them right the first time but since it is a wet application you will get it right before it dries and sets. Great quality and clarity I have found nothing better for my phones, looks like nothing is even on the screen. Only Minus I can think of is it is a wet application.

    I was eyeballing that one. Almost grabbed it, but had not seen the brand before and reviews were limited. I like the wet application protectors, so I might give it a shot. I like the small hole for the sensor, rather than the complete cutout from the top edge.

    Agreed. I had a Spigen Glass.t on my Note and it was well worth the $20. That was the first thing I looked for after getting the 1520. I was saddened to see zero support fro nokia from their website.

    I actually had an incident with my note that gave me much faith in spigen. I will buy their product again if they support the 1520.

    if only they would make stuff for our phones. been waiting for spigen to produce since i bought a 920 then 925 and until now with the 1520 it's still zero. i'd even be ok with their plastic films as i've used their oleophobic protectors for a long time already.

    Spigen plastic film is what I use on my S4, front and back. Easy to install, I use soap and water method. Literally took me no time to get it perfect and squeegee'd out. Nice part was I was able to turn it on right away and start using my phone without any interference. This is what I'm waiting for the 1520, I don't see why it would be tough to release one already.

    I have used the Skinomi screen protectors on almost all my devices (phones and tablets) and they all ended up nicely. Just go easy with the application and push the bubbles out using the provided squeegee but wrap it in a microfiber/lint-free cloth first. Then, wait a couple of days and the ones you missed will just dry up and disappear.
