NewerTech NuGuard KXs
Case Friendly Impact X-orbing Screen Armor
iPhone 4S / 4

NewerTech KXs for iPhone 4
Case Friendly Design
This NuGuard KXs screen protector for iPhone 4S / 4 leaves a small gap around the edges of the screen to prevent the screen protector from curling or peeling when used with a protective case such as the NuGuard KX.
Triple Layer X-Orbing Protection
Versatile protection keeps your iPhone's screen looking like new. Three separate layers combine into one ultra-thin, 0.28mm thick protective shield with advanced energy x-orbing technology to help prevent damage from impacts and scratches while not affecting the screen's touch sensitivity or clarity.
  • Protection Layer
    This crystal clear coating is Retina display friendly and keeps dust and dirt away from the screen
    with no image distortion, yellowing or hazing over time.
  • Absorption Layer
    This military-grade kinetic energy x-orbing protection layer is hammer-hit tough with a "3H" hardness scale rating,
    and can also self-heal from minor impact dents.
  • Adhesion Layer
    This self-adhesive layer requires no water or other liquids to install and provides a bubble-free look
    with no sticky residue if removed or repositioned.

Installation Guide

Step 1. Make sure there are no fans blowing in the room and let any dust settle from people movement for five minutes before starting the project.

Step 2. Begin preparing your screen surface using the included lint free wipe. Remove all fingerprints, dust, and oils.

Step 3. Make sure you have the included straight edge plastic tool to help apply the protector.

Step 4. Start applying the protective film at the home button end of the device and gently work from that bottom upwards making sure you have everything straight. DO NOT peel the protective film from the sheet it comes shipped on until it's near the edge of the surface of the glass. That keeps any contaminants from statically clinging to the screen protector. The protector will lay itself down and adhere to the screen easily.

Step 5. Work any bubbles from the center to the edge using the included straight edge tool.

Step 6. Take care not to create any fingerprints on the edge of the protective film by not touching that surface edge.

Step 7. If you have any dust under the screen, use the included blue sticky sheet to remove them. If you do have dust to remove, you should use a piece of tape to help lift the screen protector off of the device. Don't use your fingernails, as you can separate the multiple layers of screen protector accidentally.

Rating: 5/5 I waited too long April 2, 2017 Being as careful as I could the very thought that with one accident I could lose a valuable iPhone brought me to finally protect my investment. With the cover in place I did not skip on protecting the screen and now have my iPhone fully protected. I cleaned it and took the greatest care to position the cover as shown in the video. I was not 100% accurate (blame that on age) yet it was good enough that my wife did not laugh. I really thought I would have to press harder, but no the tactile feel is the same. It’s a big relief knowing one small accident will not mean the loss of my iPhone.

Rating: 5/5 Great Screen Protector January 8, 2017 I bought this to replace a broken tempered glass style screen protector which had broken. This is a much better screen protector. From the beginning it was very easy to install. It has a good feeling under the finger and it does not scratch easily. Highly recommended!

Rating: 2/5 Great protection for most of screen December 18, 2016 This screen protector is highly effective for what it covers. It has saved my screen numerous times. Tap and swipe smoothly with it installed. The size, however, is wrong. Major design flaw that the protector is too small for the iPhone 6S. Considerable edge gap, sufficient to catch your finger and complicate use of content on the edge of the screen like scroll bars.

Rating: 5/5 Sturdy protection screen! November 11, 2016 Installing the screen onto the iPhone was quick and easy, they provide a micro finer towel as well as a alcohol pad to clean the screen beforehand. (Unfortunately I oversaw this in my haste to apply the protector but it made no difference, it still holds wonderfully). This is a relatively think screen made to protect from many damaging events, I have not teste it (and don't pan to) but there is no noticeable effect on touch capabilities. Remember after installation to remove the thin plastic sheet which is onto protecting the protective screen ;) I forgot and thought the screen was brooch after 2 days because this plastic cover startet to peel. Would highly recommend!

Rating: 5/5 Tough times October 27, 2016 I work in the railroad environment and have had my work phone fall out of pockets, and just plain dropped, quite a few times landing on the ballast face down (of course), Seeing many colleagues' phones meet a similar fate and having smashed screens, I fitted the Newer Tech KX screen protector nearly two years ago and all that has happened to date (knock on wood) is dimpling of the protector. It has done it's job, just as the complimenting case has, protecting the phone extremely well. It works. Certainly there are other, possibly better, protection options out there but they add too much bulk for my purposes. I've even got KX protecting my personal iPhone 6+! The KX series is an excellent product and investment.

Reviewer: BusyUser Location: South OC, CA Age: Over 65 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Worked for me September 15, 2016 I dropped my iPhone 6 twice and a little crumble of broken glass was in one corner about 1.5 cm up the side but only along the edge. Then a week later, a star spread toward the Home button. A week after that one long crack went straight up to the top of the screen. I ordered the KX case and the Screen Armor. That was a month + ago and it's been stable since applying it.

The Screen Armor does make the screen easier to read because the usual grease from fingers does not stick to it the way it does to the the glass. Also, the annoying times when the iPhone won't recognize you are tapping it have stopped. The screen is more sensitive and accurate in tapping. Maybe it's just me.

I noticed if I am standing in the morning with the bright sun on me and the iPhone screen facing me, it becomes a bit of a mirror due to the bright light reflecting off me. Just walk over to a shadow.

Rating: 5/5 Protection and peace of mind January 22, 2016 This seems like a great protector and worth the money for the peace if mind it affords. I haven't hit the screen with a hammer or rock to test it -- and I won't but if you go by the product videos this protector will handle it. It's the best I have ever put on a phone screen. The glass like smoothness and optical clarity are amazing as far as I'm concerned. Like most products of this nature getting it applied flawlessly isn't easy but it's doable.

Rating: 5/5 Useful tool December 30, 2015 I love the iPhone 6S Plus and the case does not detract from usability. Tried a Otterbox defender and found it was a major detractor for comfort and screen sensitivity. Protection level seems good, have not dropped it yet. Love the grains on the sides for grip, very happy customer. Case will let lint in, but easy enough to clean once a week.

Rating: 5/5 The best December 14, 2015 I started using these with my previous iPhone and iPad. Aside from the additional protection they afford, they are easier to apply because they are thicker. The size is slightly smaller than the screen so it does not interfere with an outside case. The previous one lasted two years on my old iPhone till I turned it in. The one on my old iPad is still there. Previous protectors seemed to bubble in the warmer weather. These do not. I would never buy another brand or style.

Rating: 5/5 Nice product July 11, 2015 Purchased the KX case and after " breaking" it in by bending the case and loosening the on/ off button protector decided to purchase the screen cover. The cover is tricky to install so be patient. The iPhone screen must be totally clean or you will be re-cleaning and re-attaching. One trick that worked was using scotch tape to pick up pesky dust specks. Makes sure you are working on a dust free surface. The long and short of it is once you have it on you do not know it is there. The key is to clean the screen,then clean it again. Working small bubbles out is easy. I would re-purchase this product,same with the case.

Rating: 4/5 Good Screen Protection May 24, 2015 The screen protector was easy to install. It was sized very close to the opening size of the phone protector and the phone case does push the screen protector slightly because I have it located just off center. The screen protector is clear and does a good job of protecting the phone. I recommend the product.

It goes on easily because of its thickness. And, I had no trouble with bubbles or dust by following the directions.

Rating: 4/5 Good size. January 2, 2015 This protector installs easily, and does a good job of protecting against scratches. I like the slightly undersize product because it doesn't interfere with my case. The only drawback is that one corner doesn't stay down. It hasn't created a problem, but it sure looks like it might.

Rating: 3/5 Wrong Size For KX Case December 17, 2014 I bought the Full Size, despite information elsewhere on the OWC site, thinking that the related NewerTech KX case would overlap the outer edges to give a better overall experience. That is NOT the case. (No pun intended.) I have used other cases with included screen savers that do fit within silicone inner cases. This Full Size screen saver does not lay flat with the related KX Case. Buy the smaller size, as recommended in the product information, if you are buying the KX case. Unfortunately, as well I cannot recommend the KX case which I bought with this Screen Armor. I have reviewed it separately. This is my only OWC purchase where I have been unable to Recommend the product.

Response from MacSales.com, Marketing December 18, 2014 The screen friendly version of the KXs Screen armor was specifically designed for the KX case line whereas, and as noted, the standard protector is ideal for use on devices without any front case protection.
