Review of Zagg invisibleSHIELD for iPhone

August 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment

So when I got my iPhone I knew that I’d order the Zagg invisibleSHIELD sticker to protect it. These clear stickers are tough and protect your iPhone (or laptop or whatever) from everyday scratches, like when you’d put your iPhone in your pocket with your car keys. The US military use these stickers on some helicopter rotor blades, it’s going to protect your phone just fine.

I got the full sticker pack, front and back. I wish I hadn’t, you only need to get the front sticker to protect the screen and it’s cheaper just to get that. I already have invisibleSHIELD on my MacBook’s wrist-rest area and mouse button, so I’ve used this stuff before and know the routine:

Wash your hands, dry, spray fingertips with the solution Zagg provide, peel off sticker, spray both sides of the sticker, apply to iPhone surface and position it carefully. Wait or blow-dry on cool setting.

The front sticker went on like a charm, it’s really clear, feels alright when using your iPhone and does not drop the sensitivity of the touch screen notably. Everything works great and I’m not so scared when my 3 year old pokes Bubbles or Coy Carp on my phones screen.

The back sticker wasn’t cut out correctly during the manufacturing process, I had to use scissors to cut along one side. Points off for that. It also tries to curve around the corners of your iPhone rather than just cover the back, and that doesn’t work. After I fitted the back sticker I disliked how I couldn’t get the corners smooth. Wrinkled corners made the phone look tacky and cheap. I pulled the sticker back off and threw it away.

Buy the front cover and don’t worry about your screen getting scratched, buy a case for overall protection as well. The Zagg stickers would be better if they covered less on your iPhone, it was a mistake to try and cover the corners, I’d have liked them just to cover the back. I was frustrated by the back sticker design and the fact that mine arrived without getting cut out correctly in manufacturing.

With minor reservations, I recommend getting the Zagg invisibleSHIELD front sticker to cover your screen.

    I’ve had the exact opposite result. I applied my shield, let it cure overnight (36 hours actually) and ended up with scratches from my key within a few days. After contacting their support they said that it’s not uncommon to have to replace the shield often!! And then proceeded to tell me that I couldn’t get a replacement because I was out of my 30-day warranty. I purchased on 12/9 and contacted them 12/30. I bought 3 shields and gave them as gifts, however, I’ll be warning my friends and family to continue using their regular cases as the Zagg product does not cut it.
