Default Samsung S2 screen protector - crap?

just got one for my phone. So far, I'm not too impressed. It really dulls touch performance. I'll give it 24hrs to give it time to 'set' fully. If after that time period it still isn't letting my use my phone the way it's supposed to, well, I dunno what I'm gonna do. It's not like I can return it.

Iscreenz.

I got one for mine, and the wife got one for her iPhone4. Hers seems to work much better. I'm assuming because the iPhone is heat activated, while the Samsung uses some other touch mechanism?

Pretty much the best you can get. I got one for my S2X and its a full screen protector and touch feedback is bang on.

No, the S2 is capacitive just like the iPhone.
My guess is they use a cheaper material for their Galaxy screen protector.
I've never seen any change in touch sensitivity with the screen protectors I've used, but I've always used Clarivue products.
