Pros: great protect, virtually invisible
Cons: a bit difficult to install, but not nearly as difficult as some have stated.
Ive noticed all the negative reviews so I thought Id offer some additional installation suggestions. This protector will install the easiest, if you have a fan of some sort to speed the drying process. Also, dont be timid with the liquid during the placement phase and keep your fingers as moist as possible. And you MUST use some form of lint-free clothe to dry excess liquid during the squeegee phase. This is a great product and if you can get it on your device youll be glad you took the time to do so. I had this on my Torch and was back using it in 20 minutes.

IT IS EASY TO SCRATCH THE DISPLAY OF YOUR PHONE. THIS SCREEN PROTECTOR WAS PLACED OVER A TOUCH DISPLAY. IT DOES A NICE JOB OF PROTECTING THE PHONE WITHOUT EFFECTING THE OPERATION OF THE TOUCH DISPLAY. YOU DO NEED TO TAKE YOUR TIME PUTTING THIS ON THE PHONE, TO MAKE SURE IT PROPERLY FITS. I ADDED A CASE TO THIS PHONE, SO MY PHONE IS COMPLETELY PROTECTED. WORKS WELL AND LOOKS GREAT!
DIFFICULT to Apply

Pros: Good Protection
Cons: VERY difficult to align.
This product does offer considerable protection to the touch screen. The feel is a bit "rubbery", but i can get used to that.
My biggest "dissatisfaction" is the difficulty aligning with the buttons and openings. Its a good thing these come in packs of two, because you get one shot to get it right..thats it! The adhesion to the screen is such that the film stretches and deforms if you try to reposition it.
Too thick and too difficult to install

Pros: Very good protection I assume
Cons: Too thick. Gets scraped when installing. Too hard to install
I ruined both protectors in the box. In both cases, I thought there was a clear backing film because it seemed like there was no way the protector could be so thick. Too thick for me. Didnt seem clear to me and using the squeegee to apply it caused srapes that wouldnt come out. I peeled the protector off and the glue was so strong that I was afraid of damaging the phone! There was a sticky substance left behind which had to be cleaned off. Not sure how well the touch screen would have worked with such a thick film.
Not happy. Returned it for a refund. Not recommended.

These should only be offered to be installed before shipping. Very difficult to apply, I even took the second one to a local Cell store to get help putting it on and they could not get installed properly. Waste of money and really would like a refund or replacment.
