    I just scratched my invisibleshield easily! After applying it, I decided to do a tiny test with a plastic credit-card sized card that I had handy, and there's scratches... I'm certain that my iPhone wouldn't have being scratched!

    take it back, ask for a refund, stop scratching your screen...

    InvisibleShield material is self healing. Give it a couple hours and the scratches will be gone.

    These protectors aren't necessarily designed to avoid getting scratched. They're sacrificial parts intended to prevent your device from getting scratched. AFAIK no screen protector is harder than every other material out there so, yes, they will get scratched.

    If you're not happy with it return it. If you want to replace it then make a warranty claim.

    I don't care for the IS these days but I've used it on many devices over many years and they never scratched easily. Of course, I was never trying to scratch them.

    Does that mean that the little dent that was put in mine while curing from a particle on my desk when I put it facedown will work itself out? (Didn't want to make a new topic when my answer is almost right here)

    IME, dents in InvisibleShields don't often come out. Give it time before you return to the store to get a refund. It may work itself out, it may not.

    Well it was my fault it happened, cause I was careless and forgot to wipe the surface first. If it doesn't work itself out, I'm just going to get a new one, and if it happens after a bit of time in the 45 day period, im going to return it.

    They have a warranty. If you registered it, they will sent you a replacement.
