One of your best options for this kind of protection has got to be the SGP Incredible Shield for screen and body protection. The Incredible Shield is available in matte and glossy style but I prefer the smooth matte type with resistance to yellowing. It prevents scratches and reduces dust as well. This screen and body protector is easy to install and remove later on. (Price: $33.99)
