    Hi All

    I thought I would go ahead and warn everyone on here before they purchase their iloome screen protectors and go through the same trouble that I have.

    The iloome glass screen protector is fantastic, it looks great on the black and feels amazing; however, there are some things you need to know

    1) It is not curved as stated. The glass is actually flat all the way to the edge but what iloome have done is essentially made a flat piece of glass with a 90 edge and a support beam that rests at the bottom of the curve and holds up the glass over the edge. (essentially like this |-----|), but the ---- are higher)

    2) Most importantly, it does NOT fit together with the Apple Leather cases. The screen protector comes out to far to the edges and every time you put the Apple leather case back on it lifts up the glass off the screen. I ended up removing and reapplying the screen protector about 5 times to make sure it was perfectly center, but every way I try it lifts off again. Even after waiting 2 hours for it to set and then putting it back in the case - same result. Sadly I will be returning the screen protector for a full refund as I cannot use it. In addition I have now ruined my Apple Leather case with my fingernails from trying to get it on and off :(

    3) It blocks out some of the screen due to the black border around the edge.

    As mentioned the product, feels fantastic, looks fantastic on black; however, it just doesn't work for me with the Apple case.

    Hope this helps everyone :)

    Already shipped mine back for full refund. It does lift off the edges when u try to put a case on it. And I agree on #3

    Did you try putting it on while in the case? Maybe that would have lined it up for you.

    I think it's 50/50, based on how lucky you are with the application and theirs likely to be some variation with the Apple cases with how tight they fit.

    Also watchout - the glass type protector are strong and great, but if you ever drop your phone (happened to my buddy), it causes extra stress on portion of screen that it does not cover (corners). His screen cracked everywhere except the glass covered portion lol.
