    The quality of their screen protection is on par with the rest.

    Well, since they don't have the glass one, I did the next best thing; adhesive free film for 75 cents. I feel bad because that means they're basically paying to ship it to me...

    I bought screen protection for 6 different pieces of tech for $7.50 shipped.

    You don't think tempered glass on the new screen would feel weird?

    Extreme Guard did the same thing when the iPhone 5 came out. I bought a few and they were basically useless. You have to dip the screen in water so it adheres to the front glass panel of your phone. Then you have to wait for the screen to dry. Not good if your looking for instant gratification and i found it hard to believe that the water bubbles would dry up. I'm very skeptical of this product.

    The one i picked up is a new dry-fit model... so I hope it works well. I'll review it once I'm done.

    I just have to counter your application method. You don't dip it. It's the same as any wet applicator screen protector. You wet the protector and apply it. If you can't do it then there is no reason to blame anyone else but your self. Zagg, extreme guard, and many others use the same method. They even off a dry instal hd one.

    ----------

    Good luck, let us know how it worked out. I need guinie pig before I order one.

    So you bash the company for your inability to follow the install directions?
    I've used this company before and I have done a ton of wet screen protector installs. I have my own method of doing it, but the gist is, it takes patience, it takes good prep, it takes a bit of skill and you won't get all the bubbles out during application. There are always a few tiny ones that remain. And yes, they do going away over the course of 4-5 days.
    When I am done, you can't even see the screen protector unless you look very, very closely and at angles.

    If you want instant gratification, either get tempered glass or a dry, plastic install.

    Damn you and this coupon code! I just bought some more stuff. ;)

    P.S. Thanks again for the code. Awesome savings for a great company.

    Your welcome, and I don't understand how you can bash a company for lack of skill and they are selling it probably at about 10% markup.

    No idea

    I wouldn't worry too much. They probably pay about 10cents for each one. They're not in business to sell things for a loss. I bought their 5S glsss for $7 off Amazon with no coupon a couple months back.

    ----------

    $50 ... there's a real laugh. They'll never ever sell it for anything close to that price.

    I had their wet application protectors before, and it was trash. Still have some playing around and it was a huge waste of the small money I paid on a similar deal.

    I wonder what their glass protector is like though, anyone have experience with it?
