He said it didn't scratch but I saw scratches on the right side of the screen. You can only see it when the glare hits it and he seems pretty careful not to let that happen (also not sure why he kept turning the screen on so we couldn't actually see it)

Maybe it's just a bad video but I was not impressed

Yes I definitely see scratches. I guess he's exaggerating about the hardness.
Also, when ordering this from Amazon it says in stock but when you actually purchase it, the estimated shipping time switches to Nov.

I emailed them about this protector and these are the Hi-res pics they sent me. I like that the cut outs are very precise. I also like that there is no cut out for the camera to me in looks a lot cleaner that way. I had one like that on my 5S and it doesn't affect the camera in any way.

Thanks Richard for posting up the pictures.

I did ask them about the warranty and here is what they said.

Warranty is 1 year as standard, however each return or refund will have to be looked at individually as there are a number of things we cannot refund for, such as a bad application which creates bubbles or mis-alignment.

Warranty is not straight forward when it comes to Glass Screens, if the product is damaged when it is received it will be refunded or replaced. If the Glass Screen is not applied correctly and its re-applied several times then the adhesive is weakened, this damages the product and is therefore a user error. Each return or refund is based on individual circumstances.

I also did ask about the adhesive they used on the screen protectors and here is what he said.

The adhesive is silicon based, I do not know all the properties of it. It is not a thick Silicon solution but it is very strong and when removed will remain on the Screen Protector alone leaving absolutely no residue on the screen regardless if the screen protector has been left on for 1 day or two years for example.

Looks like Iloome's glass. Is that a white border around the glass?
No that's the edge of the screen protector - the iLoome one is edge-to-edge, not sure why they chose to use the colour border on it though, maybe it takes it stronger?

I noticed the following reply from Orzly to one of the YouTube comments asking about screen coverage:

"Hi, as the iPhone 6 has a curved front, we have modified the fitting three times, for each modification we have made the screen protector closer to the edge. If you like we can send you some hi-res images of the screen protector to see the fitting, simply drop us an email through our contact form. Also, all of our glass screen protectors have rounded edges this helps to provide a smooth transition from the screen protector to the edges of the device."

So my question is this: when they say they have modified the fitting three times, does that mean that some of the screen protectors they released were from the first two generations? Or that they modified it 3 times before publically releasing ANY?

No thanks. I will wait until Tech Armor revises theirs. They offer no questions asks lifetime warranty.

The pictures look pretty good. I'm not a fan of the colored edges of the iloome- the colors look off

£25-£26? Thats just over $40 including shipping. Nah, no thanks...not even sure how it will look on the phone, yet not knowing it will work with other cases....and the wait for shipping.

I'm really interested to see how people like these.
I like the fact that it's thin and NOT edge to edge as I use a bumper. In the pic it does look like its a little wider than the screen area but I thought that was the curve area.

This one looks like a good option for a case friendly protection, but I'd like some more information in regards to the scratches and hardness.

Well this has the same problems as any normal glass protector. There will still be a gap between the glass and the case. It will definitely house dust and lint in that gap.

Just to warn everyone, I placed an order when it was first available and my package was lost. They use Royal Mail without any tracking. I've ordered before but from what I've read, it's 50/50 on getting your order :(

Luckily their service is extremely good. They refunded my order even after almost 3 weeks.

The photos here are white, which make that lack of seal around the edges hard if not impossible to see here. I was hoping with the thinner protection that the glass would bend a little to adhere and possibly better adhesive around the edge than zagg/extreme. Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully someone can post some pics on the black phone.

Amazon might be the way to go. At least you're covered better with amazon as the middleman.
