Kindle Fire case with screen protection?

Can anyone point me to Fire cases on Amazon that specifically come with a built-in screen cover, you slip in the Kindle Fire and it's fully covered. Thanks!

By slip in I assume you mean not meant to be taken off during normal use.


I own this cover. The Fires slips right in and it has a cover over the screen that is held in place by a sturdy elastic strap:

Here's another:

Basically, any Folio cover will do the job.

Thanks, that's EXACTLY what I meant, and now I know how to search for more, " a soft protective lid for protection.". Thanks

I have that one too. Definately recommend it. People can easily think it's just a notebook.

You don't really 'need' protection on Gorilla Glass for normal use. I didn't put a screen protector on my iPad, either, and there is not a scratch on it.

That is true. But the glossy, mirror like shine from the glass is a fingerprint magnet and highly reflective. I personally don't like seeing my face reflected in the screen!

Same here it's too glossy. A screen Protector really helps!

Which one did you end up getting? Does it help with the glare?

Right now I am using a crappy cheap one I got from Crazy on Digital. It's ugly around the edges but has gotten rid of the Glare.

I bought a Skinomi Screen Protector. Which you apply with a solution and it dries clear within 48 hours. They just shipped it so when it gets here I will let you know the difference.

OK. I looked at the Skinomi one too. It's in my wish list. Let us know how it performs.

Will do! I read this method makes a flawless protector. it isn't anti-glare or clear. It will be interesting to see where it stands.

I have a love hate relationship with screen protectors. They do reduce glare and fingerprints, but they reduce readability off the text.

I had a very nice screen protector (this one) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details, but I removed it because it made the text less sharp. I had the same experience when I owned an iPad.

I have a similar one I installed on my iPhone from Zagg. You spray the solution on and then install. I think I sprayed my fingertips too when I installed.

So so. It does cut down on the glare. It's held up pretty good too considering it's on my phone and gets lots of abuse.
