    You can't beat the regular, old Invisibleshield "Original." Some people don't like the "orange peel" effect, but I have been using them since the 3GS. Also, if you register your purchase with ZAGG, they have a lifetime warranty in case you ever need to replace a dinged or discolored protector. I don't think you can say the same for the Chinese off-brands people like to promote on this site.

    Also, for the 6S Plus, Best Buy will price match Amazon's $11.11 price, that's what I did on Friday :)

    I have the white version for the Plus. Alignment is good, no bubbles and no issues with 3D Touch.

    Whatever you do, DONT EVER search the forum for an answer. As long as you don't do that, your screen will be fine.

    Protectors of this variety which slightly overhand the curvature of the edges typically chip EXTREMELY easily. Best of luck.

    The iMos screen protector is the best one for the iPhone 6s / 6s plus.

    I am using it with my iPhone 6s Plus 128gb Space grey with the gold ring. It looks amazing.

    You won't be able to use this glass protector with the Apple leather case or the silicone case.

    0.55 is wildly thick in this space and makes it grossly incompatible with almost any case that creates a lip around the front of the screen. Not so sure this is going to be that popular, but I will admit it looks awesome.

    That reviewer is actually a MacRumors forum member (@kgenova ).

    Also, that company is introducing a new version that's thinner.

    Finally, those aren't available on Amazon for U.S. customers. Well, actually they are, but some idiot in Taiwan is trying to sell them for $3,200.

    New version is arriving for review today! I'm excited to test out the new, thinner Imos--I'll post my review soon. I'll also check with the manufacturer to see if they have any new US vendors...

    Please also ask about international vendors! For those of us in the southern hemisphere/across the pond;)

    I think I am using the thinner iMos because the one I got install was made for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus 3D Touch

    I also recommend getting the iMos Sapphire glass lens protector for the camera.

    The "Orange peel effect" is when the texture of a surface resembles the skin of an orange and if you don't want fingerprints on your screen protector you should go for matte anti-glare or a glass screen protector with an oleophobic coating
