Case Mate Clear Armor Review
Clear Armor Transparent Film From Case Mate Provides Superior Crystal Clear Screen Protector & Body Shield For Treo, Centro, iPhone, BlackBerry & Other Smartphones
After buying a case, charger and battery for their smartphone Treonauts typically also look for the best possible screen protector in order to ensure the maximum overall defense against possible scratches to their expensive and beloved business tool.
Until now my biggest problem with screen protectors has been the fact that they’re not all created equal. More often than not while existing screen protectors do provide adequate scratch protection, most if not all of these have the unpleasant side effect of “clouding” your screen as the level of transparency they offer can vary widely from as low as 75% visibility to some 95%.
Thankfully in my continued search for a screen protector that offers “crystal clear” 99.99% visibility I finally stumbled upon the newly released Case Mate Clear Armor scratch-proof translucent shield – a far superior solution that has left me very, very thoroughly impressed and which is currently available for the Treo Pro, Treo 800w, Centro, iPhone and BlackBerry Bold among others.
These Clear Armor transparent films are made from the same materials used on military helicopter blades and help keep your device fully protected from the elements while at the same time being almost completely invisible to the naked eye. Additionally, in the case of my ultrashiny Treo Pro I happily discovered that the Clear Armor also greatly reduces smudges and fingerprints on my smartphone.
Each Clear Armor pack contains two full sets of front+back films, a microfiber cleaning cloth, a bottle of application solution, an applicator card and full instructions on how to apply it to your smartphone. The actual application is unusual insofar as it involves spraying the film with a liquid solution before applying it to your smartphone but once you understand the process it’s actually extremely simple and straightforward.
The video below provides a very good overview of how best to apply your Clear Armor:
A few additional tips that I learned by trial and error for applying the Clear Armor to your device includes:
- Use a pin or needle to pull out the small excess portions of the cutouts that you will not be needing.
- Ensure that your screen is virtually 100% free of any dust particles whatsoever to ensure that these do not become permanently bonded to the Clear Armor film
- Applying the film to the back of your smartphone is always a bit more tricky and requires some patience – particularly for the edges.
Overall there’s no doubt that I have been extremely impressed with the Case Mate Clear Armor solution. The 99.99% crystal clear transparency of the film on the screen is absolutely superb, the way it protects against scratches and smudges is great and the $19.95 price for two full front+back sets in each box (backed by a lifetime guarantee) makes this without a doubt the best value body & screen protectors available for your smartphone today.
