    Hey all, I know the rage these days is to get a tempered glass SP, but if you can't get a Nilken or Orzly yet, a good option in my humble opinion would be the Armor Suit Military Shield. They have one that is made for The One and I have to say it works pretty great on mine. It's a wet application SP so just be aware but if you are careful you won't damage your phone.

    When I first applied it to my One, I was scared about having too much liquid seep through and damage my phone. But result was awful. I had at least 9 air bubbles and it was driving me crazy. So after a day of dealing with it, I took off the SP and reapplied it. (Props to Armor Suit btw for this really useful feature.) This time I was more liberal with the application of the liquid and it worked out great. Now my beautiful and awesome phone has a really fantastic SP on it that keeps the glass safe from scratches and other pocket related damage that can occur. It's thin, pretty durable and doesn't leave fingerprint or smudge marks. Plus, as far as I can tell, there has been no loss of sensitivity on the screen.

    So if you're like me and ordered a tempered glass protector and it's still en route from China, this should help tide you over until you get it. Last thing you want to do is wait for an invite and get your phone only to have it get scratched while you wait for your tempered glass SP to come.

    You can get this in 2 days from Amazon, cost was I think $9. Not bad at all.

    Hope this helps!!

    I just had this screen protector and I thought it was good enough for time being. I just recently replaced it with rhino...

    But isn't this a bit more protective?

    The armor? I don't think so... And I think its not fair to compare both due to being two different types(correct me if I'm wrong),

    What's different? The Rhino and the Armor Suit? The Armor Suit is a plastic screen protector, similar to the Zagg Invisible Shield. From what I understand, the Rhino is a tempered glass protector, and allegedly makes the screen shatterproof.. pretty cool.

    "Shatterproof" is main reason I got it... Pricey but the peace of mine is worth it

    well here's hoping that you never need to see how truthful the shatterproof statement is.

    I think the shatterproof protection is only likely to help if a blow comes directly to the screen. If you drop it on your side, I think it is unlikely to make any difference.

    If you really want shatterproof, get a Blackberry. I was out with a friend and he purposely dropped his Blackberry on the ground and no damage at all. I did not reciprocate.

    Is Blackberry still relevant?

    Actually I still have one for work. It has great battery life both because it is fairly efficient and I only use it for emails. For anything else I use my OPO.

    Rhino isn't glass. Thanks @jay ray for the clarification
