Review: SGP Steinheil Ultra Optics screen protector for SGS2
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
My SGP Steinheil Ultra Optics screen protector for Samsung Galaxy S2 finally arrived in my hands today after 17days. It costs SGD $20.
First thought I had when I installed it on my phone was, "Damn, I should've just gotten this from the start"
SGP has a premium screen protector series called Steinheil. I say premium because it's really the better ones you can find, competing against giant brands like Invisishield by Zagg (known for it's durability).
There are 3 types of protectors that they sell
// Best clarity, best looking and easiest to smudge.
// Oleophobic coating. Good clarity and resistant to finger prints.
// Similar to matte. Decent clarity. Resistant to finger prints.
I chose Ultra Optic because the i9100 has a really good screen, I don't want to cover it up with something that destroys the image. But I hate finger prints as well, so at the very least I want to have as little finger prints as possible.
It performed splendidly.
As it can see, it diffuses the light slightly, which is a good thing as it will be slightly more visible under direct light. The anti-fingerprint coating works magically as well. Sure, it's still possible to get your dirty greasy stains on it if you try hard enough, but from my testing, it will be clean as a slate under normal use.
If you remember, my case is from SGP as well. After buying 2 of their products, I've became a fan of them, it's really premium stuff that's worth the money.
The only downside is that, you probably can't find it in Singapore. It's made in Korea and I can't seem to find any shops that sell their products. (except a few, iPhones) So you'll probably have better luck trying to get them online.
Overall, I'll give it a 9/10!
