    First, a big thanks for bobkeenan for sending this out to me. As promised, photos and a review!

    This is the Amzer Kristäl Tempered Glass HD Screen Protector review for the iPhone 6.

    Packaging is sturdy hard plastic, so it ships well protected. it comes with the usual alcohol cleaning pad, bubble squeegee, a oversized microfibre cloth, the screen protector, instructions, and a large De-Dusting film (Oversized sticker).

    I did the install in a steamy bathroom to keep dust down at a minimum. I cleaned the screen and used the De-Duster on the screen, and it worked great. No dust after install at all.

    The screen shield is edge to edge, with the border look around the glass. The top only has an ear piece cut out, and the bottom horseshoes around the home button. Installation was simple, and it can be lifted up and re adjusted easily.

    The glass feels nice, like the original screen. It has an oleophobic coating on it, and makes it slick feeling.

    This glass is think, and stick up on the edges. Because it's edge to edge, it also has a tendency to get snagged on different things, pulling up the protector and then you need to work out the edge bubbles again.

    I tried to use the Tech21 case with the glass installed, and this will not work. I'm guessing no case will work with the thickness of the glass along with the edge to edge coverage.

    All in all, a B- in my opinion.

    Thanks again bobkeenan!

    Thanks for the review.

    Looks like there are gaps near the edge that do not adhere well.

    The problem I see with these "edge to edge" protectors, as you can see, is their added thickness, especially at the edges. Look at the side shots. It essentially converts a rounded edge to an almost square one.

    Not for me...

    Agreed. Thats why I wanted to take some good macro shots of the edges. It doesn't adhere well. It's not horrible, but not there yet.
