I found the screen protector very difficult to get right - although I'm sure I'm not alone in this! I eventually got it right with the second one and now that it's on I do feel reassured that the screen won't get scratched. Only negative is that there are two small cut outs at the top of the protective sheet which seem to serve no purpose whatsoever and make it pretty obvious that the phone has the protective film on it. It's supposed to be compatible with the Desire S so I don't see what the cut outs are supposed to leave free?? There are no microphones or buttons in that space so it would be better if it were a smooth shape all round.

Pros

- Two clear, static cling sheets
- Easy to install

Cons

- No card or screen wipe included

You get two protectors of the glossy kind, which means the screen is as sharp as without the protector. Compare this with some matte type ones which don't leave fingerprints but which reduce screen clarity.

When I first opened the packet, I was surprised to find that only one side (the sticky side) had a backing sheet. Most protectors have one on each side, so that when you use a card to push the sheet down, you don't scratch it. However, this didn't prove to be an issue because it was relatively easy to install.
When installing, I lined up the top edge to the top of the phone, then proceeded to pull the backing sheet off towards me. This allowed me to maintain maximum control over the speed of application. There are two cut outs on the top edge. Be careful not to obstruct the proximity and light sensor on the top left of the protector and the LED light one on the right.

The protector was easy to install, because of the static cling method of attaching to the screen. I recently installed a protector on another phone and it was not as easy as with these ones. Once I had stuck it on, I needed to adjust the plastic, because a speck of dust was preventing the edge from sticking properly.
I used some sticky tape to lift the sheet and then used another piece to lift the offending article off the underside (this is where another pair of hands comes in handy - you should have some sticky tape ready prepared so that you can do this easily).

Be warned that depending on the sticky tape, it may sometimes leave a sticky residue on the screen protector - this can be removed with a little water and your nail and "smudging" it off.

Bought this for my new phone and glad you get two in a pack! I was going to go for the cheaper, 5 pack version but after reading how much better the genuine article is I went for this. I have no idea if the cheaper ones are better or worse, I only know that this is a really good product.

Unless you get it spot on first time, you'll need to practice until perfect with one before applying the second as the 'proper' one. It really is easy to use, but if you're like me and want it to fit perfectly then it's the aligning that takes the practice. So use the first sheet for this, and by the time you get to the proper one you'll know exactly where it should go. Try not to peel off the proper one, it'll attract dust, etc that's impossible to remove.

Just peel back the backing sheet about 2 inches, apply the top edge first, making sure it's straight and right on the edge, then pull back the rest of the backing sheet. The cover just falls into place. It's best to do this on a flat surface, not with the phone hand held, and make sure the phone's surface is spotless beforehand - every little spec of dust will be noticed. Any bubbles can be eased out with a cloth.

There are a couple of cut outs at the top edge of the sheet. They may seem unnecessary at first, but they allow sensors that can be barely seen to remain uncovered.

I'd definately buy this again if needed.

Let's get some facts straight. Some reviewers say you don't need this product because the Desire S has Gorilla Glass. Well type 'gorilla glass' into YouTube and, among the controlled demos using kitchen knives etc, you will see some real world demos of why you need a screen protector. If you still think you don't need it then don't buy it and don't review something you haven't bought! Also those complaining about the cutaways should take a closer look at the top of the screen, where there are clearly light/proximity sensors.

Application can be tricky but mine went OK. It took a couple of trys because I had inadvertently touched the screen first time. As another reviewer has advised you can use a bit of sticky tape to lift the plastic from one end. Once I had cleaned the bottom of the screen again the plastic adhesed easily. I smoothed some small bubbles out with the edge of a credit card and, thankfully, there were no dust particles trapped underneath. Job's a good 'un.

I was skeptical about buying this at first because my past experience with screen protectors hasn't been very good. But as my Desire S already has a small scratch on the screen I decided to take the gamble to avoid further damage.

I'm glad I did - this is the best screen protector I've ever used.

It went on very easily first time and left no air bubbles, even around the edges. It's also practically invisible, I sometimes forget it's there while using the phone!

No drops as of yet but it's nice to have the extra security of knowing the screen will be safe. Furthermore I still have the second protector if I need to switch in the future. Great item, excellent value for money.
