The HTC HD2 has a great screen, and also a great viewing angle. In fact, in a bit of informal testing, the text on the screen became illegible due to the obliqueness of the angle rather than any distortion of the on-screen image.
If you rather not have your seat neighbour in the plane watch your movie or read your spreadsheet, DCMugen has the solution for you, in the form of a privacy screen for the HD2 which dramatically reduces the viewing angle of the screen.
DCMugen notes the screen brings:
- Privacy Effect: Protect yourself from prying eyes, viewing sensitive information on your device.
- Intelligent Design: DCMUGEN screen protectors will help block out the elements, protect your device from scratches, scrapes and abrasions that are harmful to your LCD screen on your device.
- Silicone adhesive coating: No residue is left on your LCD display when you remove it.
- Anti-Scratch & Durable: DCMUGEN screen protector can be used for a long time without affecting its smoothness and transparency because of the 4H stiffness of the PET material.
- UV protection: DCMUGEN screen protector reduces the strain of your eyes by blocking 99% of the UV emitted from your LCD display.
- Ideal Custom Pre Cut: This is a custom cut screen protector, designed to cover 100% of the LCD portion of your phone.
- 3 Layer Structures: PET Material Layer, Composite Silicon Layer, Electrostatic Layer
- Washable and Reusable: Easy on and Easy off
Thickness: Enjoy double the thickness equalling to double the protection
- Horizontal Viewing Area: Enjoy viewing your device in horizontal privacy (does not work vertically but will be viewable)
Easy to Install: Easy on and Easy off. We provide you with how-to guides made by us and valuable instructional material catered to you.
- Available Different colours
The protector of course has some disadvantages:
- Reduced LCD Transparent Visibility: With some users, they will find it is harder on the eyes and will take away from the vibrant colors of your LCD screen.
- Viewing Lines: The privacy screen protector uses micro shutter lines to create the privacy illusion from the side viewing angles. These lines can be apparent and may disturb your view pleasure.
- Reduced Touch Screen Responsiveness: There may be reduced touch screen sensitivity due to the thicker material in which the privacy screen protector is made of. This is very apparent in the video above.
