The invisibleSHIELD is +3 vs. scratches, but requires a high DEX score.
If you want to protect your iPhone or iPod from scratches without having to hide them in a case, the invisibleSHIELD might be for you—with some serious caveats.
The invisibleSHIELD is a collection of pieces of clear film sized to cover the front and back of your iPhone or iPod, with custom sizes for each model. The invisibleSHIELD’s protection is great—we bore down with a house key on a protected iPod classic and didn’t leave a mark. But applying the film to your device can be nerve-wracking.
You’ll have to heavily spray each piece of film with the included solution in order to adhere the shield to your device—we weren’t thrilled about exposing our electronics to so much liquid. Combine pieces of wet film, slick fingers, and a device’s curves, and the invisibleSHIELD can be tricky to apply. The invisibleSHIELD can be repositioned during application, but several tries may be required, inviting fingerprints on the film. And, while a dry invisibleSHIELD can be removed, you could ruin its fit by doing so.
The invisibleSHIELD isn’t quite invisible, either—expect your iPhone or iPod to look glossy and faintly textured. However, protected gear will have a slightly grippy feel that may help you hang on to it when you are on the go.The invisible SHIELD does protect, but given its cost and difficult application, the average perfectionist might just want to stick with a simple case.
