    The first day I had the 521 I felt a piece of grit on the screen. There was actually a tiny grain of sand stuck to the screen and it left a puck after I removed it. I quickly decided to get a protector of some kind. I bought some cheap films and a Skinomi. There is no comparison. The Skinoni installation solution fixes the air bubble and positioning problems. The screen feels nice to touch and it resists finger prints way better than a bare screen. I'll give it a big thumbs up!

    Where'd you get the skinomi?

    Also, cheap screen protectors might actually damage the screen, so...

    Amazon. I forgot to mention there was a card in the kit to get an additional skin. They sent a complete kit free.

    Yep. Finally got mine. Skinomi, just like every other vendor, sent me screen protector for the 520. They sent out a correct item after I emailed them and let them know. Got it today, and now I feel a lot better.
    I had this same screen protector on my HTC Sensation and it is by far and away the best screen protector I have used. It does have a weird rubber like feel to it, which you get used to. But it has some cool properties. If you get a light scratch on it, after a day or 2 the scratches seem to vanish. Kind of like it melts back together. Also, after you put it on, if you end up with smears or slight bubbles under the skin, they vanish after about a week.
    Be advised, it is a wet application, which a lot of people are uncomfortable with. You could damage your phone if your not careful. This is the 3rd one I have installed on a phone, and so far so good.

    I got a really good tip on installing this from a reviewer on amazon a couple of years back. Install this in a bathroom with the shower running hot. The steam keeps down the dust bunnies you typically get under a screen protector. So far, all 3 of these I have installed look perfect.

    Good tip about the shower. They also sent me the wrong one. When I called they said they realized their mistake that morning.
