    Since it doesn't look like we're gonna get an ideal glass solution anytime soon, I was wondering there were any edge to edge plastic screen protectors? I've seen tons that have the same problems as the glass ones - they don't extend all the way around the glass and leave the edge (and sometimes even a bit of the flat glass) exposed. So far the only one I've found is the Skinomi protector which offers excellent, complete coverage but the streaks and orange peel effect are horrendous. Any non-wet application options out there (or at least something that doesn't have the terrible streak effect of the Skinomi)?

    This version isn't even out yet... As far as I know, this is the closest you're going to get. From the looks of the pics, I'd say it's pretty damn good.

    I didn't realize it was a newer version but I also don't see an equivalent version for the Plus.

    Decided to give this a try as only £5.97 on Amazon UK:

    http://mediadevil.com/index.php/browse-by-device/apple/iphone-6/magicscreen-crystal-clear-curved-edition-apple-iphone-6.html

    Assume it will be available at some point in US too if not already.

    If the curved crystal for the 6 and 6 Plus is anything like it was for the Galaxy S3 I wouldn't recommend it. The S3 version was so thin you could easily dent the protector just taking the protector covering the adhesive. That and any little bit of pressure from a fingernail also left permanent markings and air bubbles as well. Hopefully Spigen has improved on that 2 and a half years later.

    Take it for what it's worth

    Spigen uploaded this vid. I'd think there would be some perm bubbles if I did the install, seems a like a tough time getting rid of them bubbles.

    That actually looks like exactly what I want. And if the title of the video is anything to go by they're going to release a version for the Plus eventually.

    Its available on Amazon now for a 6. I'm thinking of ordering. I'll let you know if I get it and its worth it. $15 for a single plastic protector is steep.

    I just ordered this last night, at least this way I can keep it on when I switch from my Thule case to my Lifeproof.

    I have one on the way from Spigen. I had to wait a little longer as I ordered from the U.S. And I'm based in the UK.

    What was it like to install? Any issues or pretty straight forward?
