    I was lucky enough to get to test one of these for work. I have a lot of phones with different screen protectors and wanted a better option.

    I have always primarily used bodyguardz, but lately their cut got smaller and it was just unacceptable for me

    I talked in great deal with Cinder support, who were extremely responsive and always answered my questions quickly.


    Check out my video



    Let me know if i can answer any questions.

    So far this is absolutely great

    Works with all of Apple cases
    Works with the Magpul case
    Works with the Spigen NeHybrid Metal case


    ***NOTE*** i am not removing my initial thoughts..but after months of struggles this thing is total waste!!! don't get it ..this company is a joke and their customer service is atrocious !!!

    I hope you know that alcohol based screen wipes damage the oleophobic coating on the iPhone screen.

    Do you have any cases that you can try this on to tell me which ones are compatible/not compatible?

    Well this will be an instant buy on payday :D! thanks so much for video :)

    Also im only used to normal screen protectors, how easy is the glass ones to install without dust? I normally use the sticky tape under screen shield trick, but not sure how that would work with glass?

    Oh and who much does this affect touchID?

    It comes with the electrostatic tape to help with dust, but can be lifted to remove dust particles

    Also toucID is not affected, the button is a little bit recessed but i see no issues at all

    Ah right thanks! Not sure i've ever used those tapes with other screen shields, sounds good! :D

    I've gone through so many screen shields, hoping this will last my 2 year contract :p well it comes with two so only needs to last a year :D

    I'm sold. Thinking of buying a black one just to see how it would look on my Rose Gold iPhone.

    Link to order ?

    You're thinking how I am, as I was thinking of the black to see how it looks on the Gold 6s that I'm getting in.

    The only thing that would then stick out as far as white goes on it would be the antenna band around the back of the phone. But it's going into a BookBook, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    I dont think it will look good, as you will still have the white touchid button and white accents around the ear piece

    You might be right .... I think the Touch ID being white will look cool, but the ear piece is what I wouldn't like.

    Just Google 'oleophobic coating alcohol' you'll see that everyone advises against using it.

    What's with the black glass over the touch ID? Or do you pop that out?

    Good timing for Cinder to get you out one seeing as they are getting slated in the 'Where is Cinder' thread. It is a pity they are not as responsive to people complaining to them.

    It was first only a problem/delay with communication.
    But by now it seems at least a little unbelievable. I have ordered many articles from China, with and without tracking as well from China Post, but never was a letter/package for over one week in the hands of China Post and nothing happened + unable to track. It just looks like they got the shipping numbers but did not hand it over to China Post yet. I can as well create shipping numbers online with the postal services in my country and not ship them. The tracking will start showing after around 24 hours after I handed them over to the shipping company.

    looks like a fantastic product but the way they treat people indicates they'll be bankrupt in a year. couldn't be more unprofessional or sloppy or unorganized

    I've installed this protector as well.

    I see what you mean. It is just the protecting foil for the back of the screen protector which has no hole for the homebutton. But when the protecting foil of the back is taken off, then there is a hole for the home button/touch ID.
