Films avialble for all sorts of gadgets


The 3M Natural View Screen Protector is a scratch prevention film from 3M specifically cut for the iPhone 4. The film covers all the way to the edges of the screen and comes two to a pack. You can get the film directly from 3M for $14.94 for a pack of two films.

In Use

I generally use screen prevention film on my iPhone that requires liquid to apply. My last screen film was peeled up by a case I was testing so when the 3M Natural View Screen Protector came in I was ready to get it applied. The application of the film is easy since it needs no liquid. You just clean the screen of your iPhone, then align the film, and stick it down.

I was glad to see two films in the package since I immediately stuck my thumb to the first sheet not paying attention and ended up with a big fingerprint in the middle of the screen once applied. You will want to be careful and keep your fingers away from the adhesive. The second film went on easily.

I even had a crumb under the film and was able to peel it up, brush the crumb away and then stick the film back down without any issues. The film really doesn't reduce the glare all that much, the glare is a little better, but glare is still an issue for me in a bright room. I would also like to see 3M offer films for the back of the iPhone since the back is glass. Originally, I planned to put the second front sheet on the back for protection until I messed it up.

I have used this sort of dry film in the past and it has been my experience that they don’t stick well. After putting the 3M film on my iPhone I have carried the phone for over a month and the film is sticking to my phone as well as it did the first day. There are no bubbles underneath and the film works fantastically.

You can get this film cut to fit a number of other smartphones and tablets that are on the market as well. If you take your time with the install, don’t touch the adhesive, and get the film lined up well you will really like this 3M Natural View Screen Protector. The only downside is that with the film covering the screen all the way to the edges some cases may cause the film to peel.



  • Easy install
  • Can’t tell it's on the phone


  • Film runs to edges and may cause issues with some cases


The 3M Natural View Screen Protector is priced well and works very well. This is a great way to reduce glare and protect the screen of your iPhone.
