This is a 100% serious question. I bought the wrapsol ultra and it has somewhat a yellow tint.. never noticed it til i put it up beside my friends iphone 4s without a screen protector. and mine had a noticeably yellow tint (i hope its because of the protector, atleast thats what i want to think about it.) Now Im planning on going without a screen protector. I was wondering what im getting myself into.. Thanks guys!

Does the screen protector actually bother you or hinder usage? If not, and it only seems yellow by comparison, just leave it on! Much better than winding up with a scratched iPhone screen.

Why not just buy another screen protector? There are a plethora of Ultra Clear screen protectors out there.

Well - one of my wife's fellow teachers had her 4s scratched by her 2 year old - that was motivation enough for my wife to finally put a screen protector on. Glass can be scratched by any number of things. Just go get one that doesn't have a yellow tint. Problem solved. I didn't think I'd like having a screen protector - but I can't even tell it's there. I've been impressed.

I highly recommend these:

iPhone 4, 4S Screen Protectors, Anti-Glare, Crystal Films | Power Support USA

They are absolutely clear, just about impervious and dead simple to apply. Compared to just about any other film I've seen, you can't tell they're applied.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Never heard of "wrapsol". Yes, cases fit with the screen protector I mentioned above in place.

I have had my Verizon iphone 4 for about a year now and the screen only has a small scratch on the bottom by the home button.
