REALOOK 2x Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500, HQ Screen Protector Anti-Fingerprint, Korea 1
REALOOK 2x Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500, HQ Screen Protector Anti-Fingerprint, Korea 1

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall quite good, 23 Dec. 2013
Having tried a bunch of screen protectors with a similar price (perhaps slightly cheaper then this one) during several years of using smart phones, I found this one to be overall the best. Here are my findings:
- The anti-fingerprint-ness is OK, although not the best I have seen (but the protectors with better anti-fingerprint quality that I tried were worse at anti-reflection and/or were harder to apply).
- The anti-glare-ness is very good.
- It is easy to apply and to squeeze out air bubbles.
- Has a nice touch feeling when swiping the screen.
- Regarding whether the protector itself can be easily scratched, I have not used this one long enough to have an opinion. So far, after a few days of usage I have no scratches on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall quite good, but hard to squeeze out air bubbles, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros:
- It has the best anti-fingerprint and anti-dirt protection that I have seen among quite a few expensive screen protectors that I tried during several years of using smart phones.
- It is to some extent anti-reflective, although I have seen other screen protectors better at this.
- It is very scratch resistant.
- Has a very nice touch feeling compared to other high-tech screen protectors.

Cons:
- Except very big air bubbles, small and medium air bubbles are very hard to squeeze out (push to the margin) when you apply the screen protector. The product spec says that small air bubbles disappear by themselves after up to 3 days. Only the smallest possible ones that you can barely see disappeared after 3 days.
- It introduces a bit of visual noise, especially when you look at white surfaces in apps (like in Abobe PDF Reader), but this is to expect because of all the layers that make it have all the properties listed in the "pros" section.

One of the 2 included protectors had 2 defects:
- Firstly, the writing on the film protecting of the protector has left permanent markings on the protector itself, obviously a factory defect.
- Secondly, the protector was bend slightly (probably a defect from factory because the other protector was not bent) somewhere in the middle and around that region it got air bubbles when applied on the phone screen, air bubbles that I could not push to the margin and they were not absorbed because the protector itself is bent.

However the seller did promptly replaced the product and the new one is OK.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs badly software update to solve the UI responsiveness, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tablet has software problems:

* After using is for a bit (reading PDFs and/or browsing), the screen becomes much less responsive (taping keys on keyboard does nothing and scrolling the screen starts to be mistaken for a zoom operation). The only way to fix these issues is to switch off and on the screen. After that the screen responsiveness is OK for a while, then again the screen becomes unresponsive and I have to repeat the procedure outlined above. This bug may actually be in Android 4.1.1 (what the tablet is running) and not caused by Acer's software customizations. An update to 4.2.1 may fix these UI problems and also make the UI experience smoother.

* Also I noticed that the tablet forgets the touch panel sensitivity setting set after restart.

Acer, can we have a software update for this tablet, please? If that happens and fixes the above problems, I would be more than happy to change my review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Started to reset after 1 year and poor signal receiver, 7 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I live in Scotland and the radio signal to synchronize from is not very strong. This watch always had difficulties to catch the signal. In other words it has a very poor receiver. It only succeeded when kept during night at a window facing south. However many nights it could not synchronize. In comparison I also have a Casio Pro Trek wave ceptor watch and that seems to have a much stronger receiver because it always manages to receive the time update.

After 1 year it started resetting itself and not receiving the signal many nights in a row, while the Pro Trek watch works perfectly. So I though the battery may have got weak and I replaced the battery. That did not improve the reception of the synch signal and the resetting of the time back to 1 January 2005 or so started to happen more and more often. I reopened it to check if the battery does not make good contact but that was not the issue. So I have put this watch in the bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very bad sequel compared with first 2, 26 Aug. 2012
As many reviews said earlier, this is really rubbish when comparing with the first 2 movies. I will just point out one more stupid thing about this movie: the girlfriend still has at the end her high heel shoes on after all the action scenes she goes through...
