    Do they fit with a standard case on? I prefer full coverage over the open notch look at the top.

    What’s the difference between 3D and 5D/6D?

    I have only seen cheap china brands labelling their glass screen protectors as 5D/3D.

    In my opinion 2.5D is the safest if you are worried about case compatibility.

    Would covering the notch interfer with the camera. I had a glass screen protector on my X and I've installed on on my XS as well. Also, wouldn't a glass protector covering the speaker cancel out the sound? We had an overnight guest with an X that was full screen (including covering the notch). His screen protector had a crack in it and I gave him an open notch replacement. I guess I should have asked him if he noticed any difference.

    I bought a 3 pack on eBay called "The Coos" for about $12. Before, I was buying them at the Mall for about $30 with a lifetime guarantee. They're easy to break, especially if you sit on them. The Mall shop was replacing the "lifetime" covers for a service charge of $8. Don't know if they make a Coos for the Max or even the +.

    My notch has been covered since the release of the X, and not a single issue.

    I don't know what 5d and 6d are but I have an Icarez 3d that is great. with a case on you really can't tell there's a screen protector on. I don't do selfies much so I can't say if the glass over the camera will affect that but it doesn't seem to hurt face recognition at all. I think seeing a border on my screen would drive me crazy so I couldn't do a 2.5D

    Also, I've had a Catalyst Impact, a Mous, a Solidsuit, a Caudabe Sheath, and an Apple leather case on the phone and ZERO fitment issues.

    What does the 5D and 6D refer to, exactly?

    From what I had previously understood, 3D is when it covers the curve of the glass, and 2.5D is when it covers most of it, but not all of the curve, with the purpose of being better for putting cases on.

    So 5D and 6D somehow, don't make any sense.
    (something tells me people are just making up numbers on the packaging and taking an incrementalist approach, hoping that customers will think a higher number means better). But I could be wrong.

    I’m inclined to agree about the 5D/6D.

    The full screen has to be effecting the Stereo speaker and microphone. And I would think it might slightly effect the front camera since the cover is over the camera.

    Black line added to show that a full screen protector covers the speaker and microphone.

    Smh. It doesn’t cover over the speaker grill. Yea you must know more then I do that it effects the camera. I have it on my Xs Max and FaceID works perfectly fine. But I guess you know more about it then I do.

    I have a full screen protector and the only thing it doesn’t cover is the speaker. And the front camera and Face ID work perfectly. Also the mic is on the bottom of the phone so how would be affecting that in the first place.

    Is the ambient light sensor also unaffected? I rely on that to adjust the brightness of the screen (which the iPhone does accurately & quickly), so am curious if a screen protector covering that slows it down or impedes it at all?

    It’s also unaffected. My screen brightness still automatically adjusts.

    I used to wonder this aswell. While I can see how any adhesive on the back of a screen protector might potentially affect this, my experience of it on most devices so far has bee that it doesn't seem to affect it at all (the light still shows through the glass, so the sensors all still work exactly as they should)
