    I'm looking into the possibility of getting one for my Desire, primarily because I hate smudges on the screen :p

    I'm more worried about that than actually protecting the screen itself as I have a case which does that when in my pocket etc.

    I've seen that there are literally hundreds of them and I assume the £1 jobs from eBay don't do much good in the way of quality smudge reduction.

    So, minimum smudge marks in mind, who do you think make the best screen protectors, I wouldn't mind paying quite a bit if it eliminates the smudge problem, or improves it significantly.

    Suggestions please! ;)

    I've always used Martin Fields here

    Got one on my HD2 now and I'm perfectly happy with it.

    I just got some standard foneM8 ones off amazon. They smudge a little but just wipe on shirt and all fine.

    I always whore over smudges for a while when I get a new phone, I cant stand them!

    I might as well order a couple and try them, nothing to lose (except a few quid) :p

    I was just studying the smudge patterns on my desire, they are pretty cool! Loads of random finger lines everywhere.

    A bit of breath and micro fibre cloth sorts it out. Not tried the Martin Fields ones but the ones I got were £1.50 or something. Easily worth it.

    Same. I tried to apply a screen protector yesterday. Spent ages polishing the screen, peeled off the protective plastic on the protector, and then some dust ended up on the sticky side!

    Peel back screen protector, sticky tape the dust off, re-apply.
