If you’re the type of person who spends your time eating a bag of chips while using your iPhone, you may need some help from an iPhone screen protector. And while you may believe that all screen protectors are created equal, think again — they’re not.
Unlike some screen protectors on the market, the offering from USB Fever does a nice job of fitting well on the iPhone screen and protects it from scratching and other possible harm. One of its nicest features is that it’s made for the iPhone and requires no cutting or resizing — a common practice among many screen protectors that promise display safety on “any smartphone.” Even better, it’s washable and reusable so you can take it off, clean it up and put it back on in a matter of minutes.
Interestingly enough, the Screen Protector comes in two versions: Ultra-clear (the type I tested out) and anti-glare — a cheaper model with less reflection. I didn’t experience any issues with the ultra-clear version and found it to be quite effective at saving my screen from unsightly smudging and damage. The Ultra-clear version is made from plastic and while other screen protectors use glue or adhesive that leaves remnants on the screen, this one does not. And while I think $11.99 is expensive for a screen protector, the fact that it offers no fuss and is reusable easily justifies the price tag.
