For one, I've never used zagg, that is not my picture. I have seen 100's of devices with crappy ass zagg protectors... They all get that "ORANGE PEEL" look to them.
Yup. I saw a Zagg installed on an iphone 5 by the manager of the store. It had major orange peel and bubbles.

Furthermore, if you look at the way they cut it, it's a cheap half-assed job to avoid the demands of a precision cut. Especially around the top speaker: instead of going all the way to the edges for a virtually seamless installation, they cut it so that it looks like horns flanking the speaker. WTF.

With the hype surround the Zagg name, I couldn't believe this was the quality of their protectors.

Furthermore, I don't know why anyone would put up with the orange peel. It completely ruins the beautiful screen the iphone has.

I've gone with and without screen protectors over the years. They've made absolutely no difference over years of use. Of course I only keep my iphone in an empty pocket without keys or anything else, but still...

The above video should be enough evidence that you don't need a screen protector. And if you MUST buy one, buy a cheap one on ebay with a good review/rating. They are most likely the same ones you are buying that are marked up by 5000% and put in a huge shiny box.

The best part about the zagg i saw was the box.

I heard the new 30-pin to lightning adapter does not support iPod controls. I have the BMW iPod interface in my car so it looks like I'm assed out.

My Ride: Supercharged 330i
I dont have one for My Galaxy S3 Yet but when it Comes Ill Gladly Put up a tutorial, The Trick is to do it on the first try with as little of the fluid as possible People Stick Part of it on a realize its not straight and peel it off to fast ans streches the material


As you can see here, Here is my Old Galaxy S vibrant, the screen protector is starting to peel, But after 3 years and for 20 bucks its not bad, As you you can see it looks fine Not to mention covered up all of the old scratches especially on the back

They're selling a cable. Why would a cable scratch an iPhone? And if it did, it'd be clearly user's fault, why would they be responsible?

Yup, it's America, everyone is sue happy and wants free hand outs...*cough cough OBAMA cough*


That lightning cable and dock is one of the 100's that will be coming out in the next few months. Maybe then all android fanbois will shut the fvck up about the cable...

Anyone notice how fast the lightning cable charges? I was down to 6% and charged for 30 minutes, I was at 96%!!! Love this phone.

This is one of the MANY reasons ZAGG sucks...Other protectors you can take off and re-apply with no water/bubbles/bs to worry about... I mean a Screen protector that I have to use water on my phone to apply is NOT the screen protector for me.

Response in BOLD...

God, that phone is ugly...

I still stand by my Wrapsol although my buddy bought the body guardz case on amazon and i must say it looks nicer than the wrapsol. It covers more of the phone (goes around the speaker rather than stopping at them) and it's cost effective (2 for 25 on amazon).

That's not true charge.
It may indicate 96% initially, but it will go back to a more realistic number after a few minutes of use.
That happens to most charging devices because of the cheap way they implement the charge indication.

hmmm, seemed to drop at a normal rate man... It was directly plugged into an outlet, I know charging from computer USB is much slower.

Maybe ur right IDK.
