Anyone manage to get by with non-tempered glass protectors for the 6S?

    I've got a few Belkin F8W526BT3 protectors from a friend. They have a nice setup/dust removal kit included. My 6S is out of the box with the manufacturer plastic so i dont think I'd need that.

    Does anyone use the regular protectors and not the tempered glass ones? Obviously I'm not certain if I'll ever drop the phone but I want to remove my manufacturer plastic seal asap.

    Use that for now but I would get a tempered glass protector.

    I dislike the tempered glass on my 6s. I've not found one that I don't think is too thick. And it felt like the home button was down a giant hole. Can't use a sticker like I can on my iPod because of Touch ID.

    I have a plastic one on my 6s and have no problems at all.

    If I could a super thin glass one that actually covered the whole screen then I'd give it a go. But as it is I'll stick with plastic.

    They actually do make stickers that supposedly work with Touch ID but I haven't actually tried one.

    I have never used the tempered glass on any of my iPhones. Actually went 2 years without anything on my 4S and no scratches. I put one of the Spigen protectors on our 6S+ 3 for $10. I know there is always that chance, but I have dropped my phones before and never had a problem.

    Used tempered glass protectors for some time but then it annoyed me that my screen got crap trapped under it and I couldn't seem to get it out so I just used a crappy free one that came with my case and it works just fine :) maybe I'll get a tempered again once I get a new iPhone
