Careful iPhone 5 Screen Protectors from Amazon DO NOT FIT..

the 5pk of screen protectors on amazon for cheap DO NOT fit, they are under-cut. there is a huge gap below the home button. i will be contacting the merchant about it but heads up guys.

http://www.amazon.com/MPERO-Apple-iP...MPERO+iphone+5

are the ones in question

I'm guessing he measured it and compared to iphone 5 specs.

because unless the home button is right on the metal frame there is no way this is cut properly.

either the home button was moved down close to the bezel or the screen protector is cut wrong and based upon all the pics online of the iphone the screen is cut wrong.

Exactly what pictures are you basing these accusations on?

Maybe you should come up with better proof before going around slandering a company?

OK, let me get this straight. You post up a public service "warning" about some company that may be making iPhone 5 screen protectors that won't fit the iPhone 5 screen, and when people ask questions you tell THEM to do a search? I suspect you must be some competitor that's out to damage the reputation of others...

That said, I did a search and didn't find anything unusual. This is what's pictured on the Amazon link you yourself posted:



What's so bad about these?

Can you compare it to the schematic Apple provided? https://developer.apple.com/resource...dimensions.pdf

Pretty easy to verify dimensions.

Hard to verify the space between bottom of home button and where glass ends. I'm telling you tho that the screen protectors are cut short. I do not represent any company either wtf..

Edit: screen protector is only coming out to 121.38 not 123.83

LOL wait until the iPhone comes out you're acting like you have it in hand. Some front screen protectors are cut short of the edge of the screen so cases fit with them.

What is the source of your information? Post it up or shut up. So far nothing you've claimed in this thread is verifiable. Until you can put up some proof, I'd lay off on the accusations. So far the only thing I suspect at this point is that you're a liar.

123.83 is the measurement from end to end of the phone, not the measurement of the screen. You have to subtract the thickness of the edge of the casing as well as account for the amount cut off to allow the protector to fully adhere to the screen.

If they made the screen protectors the exact size of the screen, there will be no room for error.
