    Has anyone tried this screen protector? I was at the Apple store today and saw it on display. Its only 0.2mm compared to the Zagg glass at 0.4mm

    I currently have the tempered glass from Verizon (also 0.4mm) and I find some of the thin cases don't have enough lip for face down protection. Any comments are appreciated.

    Did you notice if the exact align frame is included in the box in the Apple Store?

    I didn't look but according to their website (Apple) it is included. I wonder why Apple doesn't sell the Zagg protectors.

    I am curious if anyone's tried these? It does indeed include some sort of "exact align" case/frame for installation.

    Yeah that's why I started the thread. I know Zagg has the HDX which is probably the same type of film but the align tool look interesting. Here's a video from Belkin on the installation

    But the Belkin claims to be glass whereas the HDX is not......

    Yes true. There's a video on youtube (some CES-type show in Denmark) where a rep shows bending of it and it actually breaks like glass.... not in pieces but shatters in place.

    What's strange is Belkin charges $29 on the website but Apple wants another $5.
    Typical Apple.

    Brought one of these yesterday afternoon to replace the Power Support anti-glare film Apple sells in store.

    It does what it says on the box, it's flexible, tough, smoother than any plastic film and very clear. The screen on the 6+ is allowed to shine without artefacts or anti-glare BS.

    However:

    - The film is not forgiving if any dust gets trapped underneath. Although you can tape a corner and lift the glass to clean away dust with a sticker, things seem to embed themselves into the glass itself. There is a tiny spec of dust which I've given up trying to remove.

    - Mine has some weird micro bubbles near the home button which have only just now started to disappear.

    - The glass is rough around the edges, and if you are swipe close to the edges of the screen, it isn't at all pleasant. Disappointing considering the competition generally use rounded edges.

    Thanks for your comments. I was at the Apple store today to grab the Tech21 Evo Mesh for my IP6 and the sales specialist said it was not as good as the tempered glass from Zagg. I showed him my phone with the VZ glass protector and was impressed on how nice it was. He said the Belkin would not be as nice.

    Apple should step up their accessories game, the protectors they have in store aren't great. I just picked this one up because I needed something there and then to replace my previous film which had a hole in it after something fell on the screen.
