    Is there a screen protector or anything I can do to make my pre's screen feel more silky smooth like the iphone screen? I love my pre and wouldnt give it up for anything but whenever I try out a friends Iphone the screen feels so much better when I am swiping around. You know what I mean?
    Thanks (and I honestly do love my pre half to death)

    I use phantom skins too but they aren't silk smooth like the iphone and some lcd screens.

    there is a post for skins that reviewed most. You might want to look there since they have screen shots.

    the kinda skin you're lookin for might be around but I doubt it.

    I don't think it's weird. Oil and dirt sticks well but it's pretty easy to clean off this surface as well

    Liquid wax. Buffs out the scratches and makes it slippery. I'm not joking either.

    Yah know, the only thing I would bash you for is the title of this post...

    Quit fingering your friend's iPhone. Your Pre is getting jealous.

    Side Note - I like PhantomSkins and Invisible Skins. Check 'em both out.

    There are several choices out there. If I were you, I would go to Search and type in (Screen Protector) and read through the forums, there's a wealth of info in here.

    Don't go excessive and I'm sure regular (solid) car wax would work too. Just keep it from the LED button, edges, and the microUSB port (although it won't hurt it.) I apply it to a rag and smudge it in. Let it dry for 5 minutes, then buff it with a microfiber rag (same stuff that the stock pouch that came with the phone is made of).

    I've used just about every brand of skin for the several gadgets I've owned, and I've found the "slipperiest" feel skin is the boxwave brand, it's great stuff.

    Given that, on my pre, I use phantom skinz, it's got slightly more friction, but I love how the design covers the edges of the front plate, not just the screen, my thumb feels much more natural without hitting a skin edge as I swipe across the screen.

    Hope that helps!

    Try Ghost Armor. Works great for me.

    It's because it's a plastic screen. The iPhone has a glass screen.
