    I was curious about the Orzly, but wound up ordering the amFilm since the price difference was negligible and amFilm already was highly rated.

    There are some on Ebay.
    I have tried Matt finish and found the image is blurred. Not sure why you want that.

    The advantage is that it should reduce glare, especially when out in the Sun.

    I also prefer typing on a matte screen, shiny slick surfaces bug the crap out of me while typing, causing wrong letters to be typed. The light glare reduction is a much needed bonus as well.

    For a second I thought that was an idiotic way to pretend you're playing VR. (wear the display, while using the joy-cons similar to the wimote or playstation move)

    You mean like the Nintendo Switch VR patent?

    I can't believe that's a thing. Then again, you have similar VR headsets for phones.

    I dont think you'd be able to play the Switch out in the sun unless in shade so defeats the object of using it.
    I had a Matt screen protector for the Vita and it was a pain.
    image looked fuzzy and not clear.
    if you had glare from lighting it's just fuzzy glare.
    I think youll find the clear a better choice.

    Mine arrived today with a voucher code if anyone wants it.


    The little spludger is an added bonus my only gripe with the orzly would be it has double everything but only shipped with a single alcohol wipe that will dry out before the second is installed.

    My stuff came today too very impressed with the glass. So easy to apply too compared to film ones.
    Rubber grips also nice quality. Just want some thumb stick caps now and my Switch is fully protected!

    Noticed it was 24hr post too so it really is a replacement.

    I emailed them to verify my name and address late last night and they replied this morning to say they'll ship a free replacement out and it should arrive around thursday... then I got a parcel literally an hour after i got the email from them :rofl2:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Really happy with the quality so far, easy to apply screen protector, case is hard and the inside is soft

    I sent a tweet to Orzly about them shipping with only one alcohol wipe with a positive response.

    I'm liking the customer support they appear to be showing from y'all's experiences. Makes me almost wish I ordered from them, though I'm sure I'll be satisfied with the amFilm.

    This is pretty much the only way to use the Switch outside. I have noticed that even indirect sunlight make it hard to use, direct sunlight makes it useless.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I got the AmFilm one also, really nice and has "handles" to apply it perfectly, and those work so mine is applied perfectly (insert image here of it perfectly aligned on my Switch had I had a camera at the time of this post to show it)
    I noticed the Orzly does not have those.

    the AmFilm (and probably Orzly ones also) need at least 12-24 hours of set time to avoid the "melting" issue. Little Inferno and Human Resource Machine do not heat up the screen (maybe very slightly) so those are safe to play while setting (although I would wait at least an hour before doing anything on it)
