I'm just going to use an extra ipod touch screen protector I have lying around for now... Dimensions look to be the same, except I'm going to have to cut a bit off of the bottom for the buttons. That is, until a decent anti-glare sceen protector comes out for the Imagio.

How's the fit for that ipod touch protector? I amwaiting for the Invisible shield to come out with Imagio sizing but I could run to Best Buy if an Ipod touch cover is close.

I just finished putting it on... the dimensions are an EXACT fit for the screen, at least. The problem is, you have to put it on perfectly for it to work, because if you are off by even a fraction of a millimeter, the screen protector will get stuck on the edge of the screen and won't stick to it completely. I would recommend using the method shown here, I couldn't use it though because this method takes overnight to set and I need to use my phone tonight. I had to reapply it several times to get it to set right, and as a result, there are a couple of specks of dust beneath the protector :(

The only part where it gets tricky is the bottom, because the ipod touch has a giant hole for the button. I cut off a line where the bottom row would be, and it actually got most of the hole... Just the top part remained, and it kind of looks in place because it's over the center button, but it's still leaving a small amount exposed. It's not perfect, but it's a pretty good fix IMO until a normal, anti-glare screen protector comes out.

Re: HTC Imagio ''Screen Protector''
 
Thanks for the info on sizing. Maybe I'll get a more "entry level" screen protector in touch sizing until the Invisible Shield comes out for Imagio.

I also didn't realize it is supposed to "set" for 12 hours.

P.S. Is it easy to trim the bottom? Did you use a blade or scissors?

Yeah, it was pretty easy. I just used a sticky note to mark where I needed to cut, and used scissors to do it. The sticky note helped a lot, because the cut goes through the round hole, so it helps to keep the everything level.

I'm going to see how the DLO Ipod Touch screen cover is. Just as a temp until IS. I definitely want something. I'll order a rubber case on EBay.

I just ordered the first protector listed in the main post. I had about $5 in Ebay bucks, so I thought I would try it.

I'll post a review when I get it.

OK I received this screen protector today http://cgi.ebay.com/3-Clear-Screen-P...item2c5133bd77 as listed above.....just an FYI it doesn't fit the screen at all. I have room on each side as well as the top (the top has more room than anywhere. Very dissapointing. I guess I'll just suck it up until one of the more reputable companies come out with one.

Thanks for the heads up. I went with the 1st link the other day so just waiting on that to arrive. From the sound of it (so far) I am glad I did.

I second this. covers the actual touch part but not all the way around.
Also, the material feels soft to touch which is not very convenient for scrolling.

I sent the seller an email and told them the problem and they quickly refunded my money. :) I then proceeded to order the other one. I will let you know about it when I receive it.

I emailed the seller telling the size is wrong and he said he will ship me the correct size. Maybe he got the correct size now.
I'll let you know when I get the replacement.

Got this one today: http://cgi.ebay.com/INVISIBLE-Verizo...item414997e30a

It's the one in the first link. Fits the screen PERFECTLY covering the whole touch screen. I have never installed a screen cover before, and I managed to do it on the first try, with no bubbles.

Anyone who ordered this one will be happy.

When you guys post about the screen protectors, please mention how "tacky" or smooth your finger or nail glides on the surface. That's a big factor for many.

On the one I have, you can definitely tell it's there, but to me it doesn't feel tacky or restrictive. Very little added texture.

johnbrain 10-16-2009 01:42 AM

Re: HTC Imagio ''Screen Protector''
 
I installed the same one today. I had a little trouble with lint even though I had the shower running to make it humid. Otherwise it fits perfectly. No bubbles. "Curing" overnight.

Even with a couple specs of lint i feel good about protecting the device. It would have lint from my pocket. I also bought a rubber case on Ebay. It covers the buttons too.

The screen protector is very clear. Slight orange peel when the screen is black and I hold under alight. But in normal working conditions it looks fantastic.

I was looking at those. Do they fit tight?

johnbrain 10-16-2009 02:12 AM

Re: HTC Imagio ''Screen Protector''
 
I bought this one. Fits great. It's the first time I've used a case and it does attract lots of pocket lint. However, I feel it's worth the protection.

So I have the sleeve and the invisible screen protector.

I emailed ghost armor the other day and they said that they will be releasing a shield for the imagio in the next couple of days. They have great a great product in my opinion.

Got a replacement from seller and its the correct size now. He send me extras too. I guess he has the correct size now.
The protector does feel rubberish, but better be safe than sorry.

Search ebay for Imagio Clear Protector...I have one installed on mine right now, and can't even tell its there. And a plus is, it's COMPLETELY reusable. you can peel it right off and it leave NO residue - and it sticks right back on without a problem!

Zagg now has a full body protector for the Imagio, put in my order. I'll give everyone my opinions once i receive it.

Re: HTC Imagio ''Screen Protector''
 
I ordered this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/3-Clear-Screen-P...item2c5133bd77

It is a horrible static screen that is very hard to manipulate into place and left me with a ton of bubbles. Now I could have put some soapy water and squeeged out the bubbles better as well as used a hair dryer to further it along but I don't feel right about putting liquid anywhere near my phone. Furthermore the screen is sticky and does not slide well with fingers or stylus. I am still using the saver only because I need to protect my already scuffed screen. Wait and get the Hh screen guards if you can otherwise you can try the other or just be prepared to be disappointed with these.

Got my zagg full body shield yesterday. Its OK. Front face was a little off. Front sides aren't covered. Back corners aren't covered. Hopefully they will consider fixing some of these issues.

Re: HTC Imagio ''Screen Protector''
 
I ordered the one from the first post and it fits perfect. It is just like Zaggs but was half the price. I have used zagg on most all my phones, but i am realing liking the feel of this product. Not as rubbery as Zagg but scratch resistant just like Zagg and Ghost Armor. I only paid $7 for the screen protector, but they also have a full body protector too. Not A bad product at all.

I have used Invisible Shield (zagg) before and it is very spongy with an "orange peel" surface. Let me know if that is the case with yours.

I just ordered the BodyGuardz full for mine and it will be here today. You get two for the price of one and the feel is more like Ghost-Armor, which is thest best polymar shield I have found. I will let you know what I think later tonight.

I did the universal cut to fit from the VZ store.I am not sure who makes it for them, but it does seem pretty tuff. I was able to cut it to fit pretty good, however, it seems a bit stiff and seems to lessen the screen response a bit. If you are a VIP customer a 3 pack is $10.

Boxwave just released their ClearTouch Crystal and Anti-Glare screen protectors. They make quality stuff. I will likely get one of these soon.

I purchased a screen protector from pocketsolutions.com. I felt that it was very low in quality and I just ended up tossing the thing. The fitment was about 95% right but it just felt too cheap to my liking. I ended up buying the one from the first post in this thread.
