Moshi iVisor XT hands-on
The experience of applying a screen protector of some kind on a device could be either good or bad depending on the results, but as we’ve come to see too often, bubbles are persistent things that arise during the process. Sure, there are some screen protectors that require a liquid solution to be applied in order to lessen or completely eliminate bubbles. Nevertheless, they’re more of a hassle than anything else. Normally we don’t tend to cover screen protectors, but with the Moshi iVisor XT for the iPad and iPhone, it’s able to capture our attention for the simple reasoning that it’s guaranteed to be 100% bubble-free.

And surely enough folks, our jaws drop in awe as those remarks prove to be true in every way. So how does it work? Well, it seems that a thin piece of plastic is layered on top of an adhesive outer border, which results in keeping the screen protector slightly raised and bubble-free every single time we apply it on both the new iPad and iPhone 4S. However, we have to admit, we absolutely love the hassle-free experience when applying the iVisor XT over other screen protectors we’ve seen.

Frankly, we’re enthralled by its pristine appearance, but we do notice some distortion towards the middle of the screen protector – though, it’s not recognizable when looking at the device straight on. Additionally, our iPhone and iPad maintains the same level of responsiveness with the iVisor XT applied. Priced at $30 for the iPad and $25 for the iPhone, some might be scared away from its price point versus comparable screen protectors, but seriously, its reusable aspect makes it more valuable – especially with that 100% bubble-free guarantee.  Therefore, if you’re tired of having to buy screen protectors for your iPad or iPhone, you ought to check out the Moshi iVisor XT since it’s probably going to be the only one you’ll ever need to buy.

Bring it to current high-end Android devices and the five rumored Nexuses releasing this fall. This would be a great accessory to have for some.

Nahh, Martin Fields still the best, sometimes they're a bitch to install, but the newer ones have an Anti Reflective coating, and they're pretty scratch resistant. I usually use Invisible shield on the back but due to the fact that Zagg didn't make one for my tablet I had to use another brand, Armor Suit. Invisible shields have an "orange peel" like surface to them, but these Armor Suits are like glass, tough and self healing too, amazing. Wrapsol USED to be nice and glassy like that, but they went to this "Dry install" crap and now they install HORRIBLY so I don't use Wrapsol anymore.

Ive never used screen protectors and I dont seem to ever get scratches on my phone. I even pocket my phone with my keys. Am I just incredibly lucky or are screen protectors a waste of money? bubble free or not, is there a real advantage?

well most phones have high quality glass that doesnt scratch from just key scratches… but ive dropped my phone on rocks and other sharp objects before and have been very happy i had the screen protector-- also for me it tends to keep the screen smudge and glare-free which is extremely beneficial
