InvisibleSHIELD is one of the most well-known screen protector manufacturers. The military grade patented material used by InvisibleSHIELD is quite possibly its biggest selling point. Moreover, unlike most other screen protectors, InvisibleSHIELD also offers full body protection. My roommate Chinmoy Kanjilal graciously agreed test a review unit (sent by Mobilefun.co.uk) on his HTC Legend.
InvisibleSHIELD’s packaging is impressive and includes everything from adhesive and spray to squeezy (to squeeze out bubbles). However, applying InvisibleSHIELD turned out to be a lot tougher than expected and took around about an hour. Fitting the screen protector around edges demands some dexterity. The supplied manual is helpful, but anyone who purchases an InvisibleSHIELD should have a look at the video embedded below before getting started.
InvisibleSHIELD Installation Guide
After application, the InvisibleSHIELD took about half a day to heal. Although the screen protector is extremely tough, it is still thin enough to be comfortable to use. Unlike some of the other screen protectors, there was no perceivable loss of sensitivity with the InvisibleSHIELD. However, the surface has a rather plasticky feel to it (i.e. it lacks texture) that I don’t like.
InvisibleSHIELD Scratch Test
I have been using Martin Fields screen protector on my Xperia X10 for the past couple of months. After testing both, I would have to say that I am more impressed with Martin Fields. InvisibleSHIELD is undoubtedly more durable; the MF screen protector has already acquired quite a few scratches. However, it is a real hassle to install and feels less satisfying to use. It’s not a bad product by any means. All of the materials included are of high quality. Importantly enough, InvisibleSHIELD is reusable and the adhesive doesn’t leave any mark on the handset after removal. In fact, if you want full body protection and don’t want to use a screen cover that spoils the beauty of your handset, InvisibleSHIELD is your best option.
