Specifications

Like all other types of invisibleSHIELD film, the invisibleSHIELD Case Friendly Screen Coverage film for iPhone 4 is made from a material that prevents scratches and protects your screen. The stuff has a 45-day guarantee and comes in several different styles depending on the protection you want. The film I am reviewing covers the screen only and sells for $14.99.

In Use

I have written several times about the Zagg invisibleSHIELD films in the past. One thing that has really bothered me about the film is that any time I tried to put a case that wrapped around the font of the iPhone screen on the device the invisibleSHILED film would peel up. That drives me crazy and I was constantly pushing the film back down in places to prevent it from coming off.

When I picked up my iPhone 4 a few weeks back I immediately went and purchased the invisibleSHIELD Case Friendly Screen Coverage film for iPhone 4. This is the first time I have spotted a film made by Zagg that is specifically for people that want the screen protection, but want to use a case as well. The difference between the invisibleSHIELD Case Friendly Screen Coverage film for iPhone 4 film and a normal screen film for the iPhone 4 from Zagg is that the invisibleSHIELD Case Friendly Screen Coverage film for iPhone 4 is cut slightly smaller.

The smaller cut puts the edges of the film further from the edges of the iPhone 4 screen. That does mean that a bit more of your screen space is vulnerable to scratches. However, that also means that most cases you will want to put on your iPhone 4 to protect the glass front and back from drops will not touch the film.

That tiny bit of extra space is very important if you use a case that must be removed to dock your iPhone or synchronize the device. If you remove a case frequently with the standard film cut in place I guarantee it will peel away at the edges eventually. I have had five different case son my phone in the last few weeks and the invisibleSHIELD Case Friendly Screen Coverage film for iPhone 4 film was not an issue with any of them but one.

That awesome KarasKustoms machined case wrapped around the screen more than most silicon or polycarbonate cases and lead to the film peeling a bit at the edges. Other than that one case, this is the film to have if you plan to keep your iPhone 4 in a case that covers the back and sides of your device.

Verdict

Pros

  • Includes all that is needed for install
  • Great scratch protection

Cons

  • Install requires liquid
 

Conclusion

The invisibleSHIELD Case Friendly Screen Coverage film for iPhone 4 is the perfect scratch film for the iPhone 4 user needing a case on their device as well as the screen film.
