    Hey guys,

    So I saw this at Best Buy and I wanted to see if anyone tried this? Apparently they cut the SP right there and apply it. Lifetime warranty, no fee for replacement or reinstall fee.

    Interesting. May have to check this out too. Curious how they can do it in the store without getting dust under the film. I'm pretty anal about that.

    I am a Best Buy employee and clearplex is amazing with persise fitting for whatever device you're getting. Can be cut and used for almost anything Macbook Pro displays, and not as widely used phones as the one plus one

    interesting. do they have templates or come pre cutout for iphones like the picture in the ad from the manufacture, or do i have to rely on an employee to do the cut?

    no offense, as this just pertains to my local store, but competence + BB = oxymoron

    Is it just for the screen or can it be applied to the back instead of the front?

    Follow the link

    I'm left wondering why they did not fire a bullet at the phone or why they did not peel the multiple hit shot in the ip5 behind the scenes video

    One other thing….

    Even the iPhone does not have a glass like surface. Its an Oleophobic one. So unless this stuff is oleophobic it will not have the same feel as an iPad.

    My BB didn't know what it was. They recommended Zagg Glass.

    Whenever I search it via Google, it always gives me the Best Buy Canada website. I'm wondering if it's an exclusive up there. Could be wrong though.

    I called two other BB's in my area and they never heard of Clearplex. I went with a Zagg HDX back and a Zagg Glass front

    how much extra? i hope its not the same price as the front..

    jesus christ, i hope that's a joke. then another $220 for them to remove it. to be fair, norton has gotten better by reducing bloatware and the amount of memory their AV is infamous for hogging. just cause norton used to be decent back in the 90's and gave people a "safe" feeling, doesn't mean it's the holy grail of protection.

    even if it contributed to the problem or goes against my advice, the amount of computers i fix that come with and must leave w/ norton (customer demand) is ridiculous. these freakin baby boomer dinosaurs need to adapt.

    To be honest, I don't really know since its a question not asked often. But I know we do it and I doubt it would cost as much as the front

    cool. appreciate the info and fast replies, you've been extremely helpful. would love to hear your thoughts of this on an iphone 6. gonna be picking up a moshi iglaze armour at BB this week (and for manager screwing up COD AW purchase w/ GCU), so will look into the clearplex.

    wish i had someone like u working at my local store...

    Well I don't work mobile (I totally want to btw) I do really like the iPhone 6, its my first iPhone in a few years (coming from many android phones as of late ex. LG G3, HTC One M8.) Not that I prefered Android over iOS(both great AND weak in their own accords), it is just that I enjoy 3rd party keyboards and bigger screens; now that Apple posesses this with the iPhone 6 and 6 plus and living in a Apple centric ecosystem made everything sync (with iOS 8 and Yosesmite especially)

    Note sure what I was thinking when I was righting above, but I did spend 20 minutes writing it on my iPhone; so I will just roll with it.

    OVERALL:
    the iPhone 6 is a great phone, I love the design, I love iOS 8 and all its features it brings to bring to to par with android, I love the the accessory market it has (which bestbuy has a massive selection online and in store) I also love how applications just better on iOS compared to android. Only thing I don't like about the iPhone 6 is the battery life; its okay. Not great okay, might be becuase I am a heavy power user but thats how I see the battery life

    IIRC, mobile works on commission when i was gonna work for geek squad years ago. personally hate sales, but whatever floats your boat.

    i also came over from android, and this is the only apple product i use. i loved swype/swiftkey, and it was the hardest feature to lose going to apple and all their proprietary B.S., so def looking forward to that as my 4 is still on ios 7. surprised you say that about battery life, android was notorious for pretty bad battery life w/o shutting off everything under the sun and doing all these tweaks, at least when i was using it.

    my question was actually in regards to the clearplex installed on an iphone 6, rather than the phone itself, but decided i will just roll with it ;P

    My mistake totally misread, but its fine but I do prefer glass screen protectors; using zagg glass now (with some lift on the edges)
