    I have the BodyGuardz Tempered Glass screen protector for my 6S Plus, and I feel like it might be affecting the force of my touch when I press on the screen. Is this possible? Are there any cases that won't have an impact on that (more specifically tempered glass ones)?

    How thick is the screen protector? Most screen protectors should be 3D Touch compatible, especially the thinner ones (0.33mm and less)

    According to Apple if they are built to their specs then no, I've found the built in piece that my case has does in fact impact it. If I take it out if the case I have much more consistent results. YMMV

    I bought the Spigen GLAStR SLIM - SGP11634 from Amazon for $7.99, no issues at all. I am not sure how thick it is but it has not had a negative impact on any function of the phone I have tested.

    43% of reviewers on Amazon give that product 1 STAR, and if 2 star and 3 star reviews, it jumps up to 53% of reviews being negative. I think no matter what, I would avoid this product. But everyone is free to do as they please.

    They NEVER mention (not on Amazon nor on their website) the thickness of their product though, which is suspicious.
