abunda_amazon_reviews Recently purchasing an iPad Pro 9.7" and an Apple Pencil for drawing purposes, I was in dire need of a screen protector to provide a tactile, texture feel akin to that of paper. After reading and watching many reviews throughout the interwebs, it appeared that the iCarez Anti-Glare/Anti-Fingerprint Matte Finish Screen Protector was the recommended winner. Boy, am I happy that I bought this. I originally had the concern that this would be too "grippy" or "rough" and would eat away at the Apple Pencil nibs; but it fortunately provides just enough grip to give the perfect feel and feedback when drawing with the Apple Pencil. Shipping was fast as it came a day before it's designated arrival date and the installation went as smooth as butter. There are concise installation instructions to follow, including dust removal stickers for the perfectionists inside us all, as well as an extra screen protector if we managed to fumble the first installation horribly. Bubbles are easily pushed out during application and any trapped dust particles may be removed with the stickers. Below are my general thoughts of the product using it with and without the Apple Pencil: Normal use (without Apple Pencil): The Anti-Glare Matte finish is a great feature to have on a screen protector. This prevents harsh lights to blind you as you're checking your mail, surfing the web, or playing any App games. I feel that this is a great way to help protect your eyes if you tend to stare at the screen for any prolonged period of time. Direct skin contact to the surface also feels great. The surface still feels very smooth to the touch without the stickiness of your fingers to the glass. Your fingers still might slightly stick if they are sweaty or wet, but very minimally. Lastly, there are NO fingerprints present on the screen after use! Drawing use (with Apple Pencil): Drawing on the bare iPad screen felt like I was trying to figure skate on glass without any traction. With the iCarez protector installed, I feel like I'm back in control of my own movements. The surface provides enough "teeth" or "traction" to feel like you are sketching on paper. The responsiveness of the Pencil seems unaffected and works perfectly with the product installed. As for any concerns regarding the protector scratching, I've tested applying a generous amount of pressure with the Pencil and no scratches are present. There may be slight marks as you draw, but they will wipe away easily with a cloth. In regards to sticking, the surface also allows your palm to glide a lot more effortlessly and I've noticed minimal sticking occur (none if you draw with a glove). Palm rejection also is unhindered and functions just as intended. Pros: - Easy Application (Very concise instructions, love the dust removal stickers) - Comes with two protectors (Incase first installation fails horribly) - No Fingerprints - Provides a good "Paper" feel when drawing using a Stylus (Apple Pencil) - Scratch resistant - Anti-Glare for harsh reflective lights - Minimal sticky feeling when in skin contact to the screen - Good fit to the device (Cutouts were perfectly aligned to my iPad Pro 9.7") Cons: - Screen may appear grainy Overall a good product. Would definitely recommend it as the price is fairly low, so why not give it a shot?;;Reviewed in the United States on November 3, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;iCarez Anti-Glare/Anti-Fingerprint Protector for Drawing and General use;;Kiet Lo;;;I was worried that I was scratching up my iPad from the constant drawing I do on it. I did put a couple permanent little scratches in the glass, but they are beautifully masked by this matte screen protector. The real reasons I got this screen protector however are because fingerprints/smudges drive me insane, and I wanted something more comfortable to draw on than the slippery-smooth glass. Anti-Glare/Anti-Fingerprint: I don't often use this outside, so glare hasn't ever really been an issue. But fingerprints are a nightmare! On the anti-glare front it does cut down on the glare some, but if you hold it right so the light (be it from a lamp or the sun) is reflected on the iPad it will glare. I don't really think there is anyway for it not to so I don't find that as a fault. It reduces the glare though. As for fingerprints, while it wont completely stop them it is very resistant. Just pressing your finger against it wont leave a print, likewise gentle swipes cause no issue. You can still smudge it if you take your nasty-oily finger and press down and drag, but not something a few seconds with a microfiber cloth wont fix. Mostly you wont find fingerprints all over the edges from holding it to read, or from casually picking up and setting down. It's actually very nice to have a smooth clean screen. Grainy/Fuzziness: This is one of the major complaints I've seen. You can see from my pictures of Amazon Prime app and a book that it does make the picture a little grainy looking. It isn't horrible, and in terms of reading (and drawing, more on that later) it actually has a really nice paper-like quality that makes it look more like writing on a page. I find reading more comfortable as it isn't stark white background blinding me. I don't use my iPad as a major TV-watching device, but I don't find that the matte screen protector really detracts from the picture when I do watch. To be honest, if I was watching something that I really cared about picture quality on, I wouldn't be watching it on my iPad to begin with. In the end I think it's personal preference, but I like the matte look. Drawing with the Apple Pencil: This is the big one for me, as this is my main use for this device. I got it to do digital artwork on, and that is what 90% of the usage of it is for me. And for that I LOVE this protector. I was drawing on the slippery glass screen and I find it feels so much more natural with this protector on. There is some grip with the pencil that is more akin to drawing on real paper. You will notice from one of my pictures that after some scribbling with the pencil you can see noticeable lines on the screen protector. The next picture of the clean black screen was taken after a little bit of buffing from a microfiber cloth. The scratches made by the pencil can be buffed out, at least from my experience so far. I will update this review after a few weeks of continued drawing use and let you know how the protector holds up, but it seems pretty good. Conclusion: If you do a lot of drawing and or reading on your iPad this matte protector is ideal, especially if you detest smudging. If however you use this primarily for video media consumption and the quality of the picture is very important to you, I might suggest a smooth tempered glass cover. For what this one does however, it does it spectacularly, and I would highly recommend this to any iPad Artist.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Highly Recommended for any iPad Artist;;C.R. Fowler;;;I purchased this for my iPad 9.7 Pro. I haven’t had an anti-glare screen protector for at least 10 years. I was hoping that the technology would have progressed to combine anti-glare with decent clarity. I guess I was wrong. The fuzziness that the anti-glare has just doesn’t work for me. I had no issues installing this screen protector on my iPad. I use the steamy bathroom technique and then I’m all about prepping the iPad screen. I clean it thoroughly with Invisible Glass and then also run a lint roller over it to get any dust or particles that might have settled. Then I peel back just an inch at the top and align it perfectly to the top and front camera of the iPad. Next I pull the skin off the protector as I let the protector roll down on to the iPad. I had only three small bubbles that were easily rubbed to the edge and the disappeared. So I was totally happy with the installation. I also like the feel of the anti-glare and the way the Pencil feels. This protector also seems to not show fingerprints and smudges as much as the clear protectors. Would be a super, happy camper if not for the reduction in clarity from this anti-glare. It seems the same as the ones I used 10 years ago. I don’t get it. Crizal can put anti-reflective coatings on eyeglasses without reduction in clarity. Seriously, can the engineering community not do the same with anti-glare screen protectors? So for now I’ll keep this screen protector on my iPad but I’m glad I didn’t pay much as I’ll probably replace it with a clear protector soon. Okay screen protector if you can live with the reduction in clarity.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 19, 2018;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Good for anti-glare but has reduced clarity :(;;Nhwhazup

Grainy/Fuzziness: This is one of the major complaints I've seen. You can see from my pictures of Amazon Prime app and a book that it does make the picture a little grainy looking. It isn't horrible, and in terms of reading (and drawing, more on that later) it actually has a really nice paper-like quality that makes it look more like writing on a page. I find reading more comfortable as it isn't stark white background blinding me. I don't use my iPad as a major TV-watching device, but I don't find that the matte screen protector really detracts from the picture when I do watch. To be honest, if I was watching something that I really cared about picture quality on, I wouldn't be watching it on my iPad to begin with. In the end I think it's personal preference, but I like the matte look. Drawing with the Apple Pencil: This is the big one for me, as this is my main use for this device. I got it to do digital artwork on, and that is what 90% of the usage of it is for me. And for that I LOVE this protector. I was drawing on the slippery glass screen and I find it feels so much more natural with this protector on. There is some grip with the pencil that is more akin to drawing on real paper. You will notice from one of my pictures that after some scribbling with the pencil you can see noticeable lines on the screen protector. The next picture of the clean black screen was taken after a little bit of buffing from a microfiber cloth. The scratches made by the pencil can be buffed out, at least from my experience so far. I will update this review after a few weeks of continued drawing use and let you know how the protector holds up, but it seems pretty good. Conclusion: If you do a lot of drawing and or reading on your iPad this matte protector is ideal, especially if you detest smudging. If however you use this primarily for video media consumption and the quality of the picture is very important to you, I might suggest a smooth tempered glass cover. For what this one does however, it does it spectacularly, and I would highly recommend this to any iPad Artist.

Good for anti-glare but has reduced clarity :(
I purchased this for my iPad 9.7 Pro. I haven’t had an anti-glare screen protector for at least 10 years. I was hoping that the technology would have progressed to combine anti-glare with decent clarity. I guess I was wrong. The fuzziness that the anti-glare has just doesn’t work for me. I had no issues installing this screen protector on my iPad. I use the steamy bathroom technique and then I’m all about prepping the iPad screen. I clean it thoroughly with Invisible Glass and then also run a lint roller over it to get any dust or particles that might have settled. Then I peel back just an inch at the top and align it perfectly to the top and front camera of the iPad. Next I pull the skin off the protector as I let the protector roll down on to the iPad. I had only three small bubbles that were easily rubbed to the edge and the disappeared. So I was totally happy with the installation. I also like the feel of the anti-glare and the way the Pencil feels. This protector also seems to not show fingerprints and smudges as much as the clear protectors. Would be a super, happy camper if not for the reduction in clarity from this anti-glare. It seems the same as the ones I used 10 years ago. I don’t get it. Crizal can put anti-reflective coatings on eyeglasses without reduction in clarity. Seriously, can the engineering community not do the same with anti-glare screen protectors? So for now I’ll keep this screen protector on my iPad but I’m glad I didn’t pay much as I’ll probably replace it with a clear protector soon. Okay screen protector if you can live with the reduction in clarity.
