Made from exactly the same film as our highly-rated Model S and X screen protectors, we offer four types of protector, Matte, HD Clear, HD anti-fingerprint and HD 5H Anti-scratch and ultra-tough film. A tempered glass (9H+) version is also available.
All protectors offer excellent protection against scratches and UV light, and are made from two-layer high-grade PET film sourced from Japan designed specifically for use in cars (this is important to prevent issues with polarized glasses). Because they're designed for automotive use, they all have anti-blue characteristics (which reduces reflective glare at night). Each pack is supplied with an applicator card and a cleaning cloth. A link to full instructions are included with each screen protector, and an installation video is available at our Help Center.
Which option should I choose to reduce fingerprints?
This is the most popular question, and something of a contradiction. No screen protector can reduce fingerprints, they can either hide them, or make them much easier to clean off. Most cellphone fall into the latter category; they have an oleophobic coating that does little to prevent fingerprints, but does make it much easier to clean them off, typically just pulling your phone out of your pocket does the job. This is the same as our HD Anti-fingerprint protector; it's basically the HD Clear protector, with an additional oleophobic coating. The Anti-glare/matte screen protector hides any fingerprints. Really well. So if you're good with cleaning the screen every week or so, pick the anti-fingerprint option, but if you'd rather leave it for longer, we'd recommend the anti-glare/matte protector.
Which is the easiest to install?
Probably the 5H protector. It's much less flexible than the other options, making it less fiddly to install. This is also why it's sold in just a single pack, as you're less likely to need a do-over with it. We also now have a 9H protector, which is even easier to install.
I'm worried I'll screw up the installation :-(
Fair enough. We've installed dozens, but there's still a knack to it, especially with the Model 3 screen, there's no margin for error due to the lack of a bezel. The main thing is to take your time, and avoid dust, at all costs. If you're not experienced with installing large-format screen protectors, please consider buying a double-pack, as the cost is not much more, and you get a second try (if needed!).
Is this a perfect fit for the Model 3 screen?
The Model 3 screen has a slight curve on the bottom edge. This wasn't in the engineering specs, so this generation of screen protectors have a straight edge along all sides, including the bottom. The reality is that at the most curved point, about 1.4mm of the screen is exposed, so the protector still protects the screen, and the vast majority of customers don't even notice. Our 9H version does account for the curve.
