    Any Ultra Clear PET film would do unless you want tampered glass ones.

    Go glass...
    Beyond that go with a known good company.

    After I picked up a cheap glass screen a few years back, I can't stand the plastic film crap. The glass makes it feel like you don't even have a screen protector on.

    How so? i personally can't stand glass screen protectors, they are clearly visible on the phone due to their thickness, film protectors on the other hand are typically super thin and if installed properly can barely be seen, that can't be said about glass protectors and i've seen a great share of them installed on iphones, i can tell from a few feet away there is a glass screen protector installed on an iphone and it just doesnt look good for me

    Is the screen the same size as the 6S Plus? What about a case, are the dimensions same on the 6S plus as they are the 7 + just needing a bigger camera cut out ?

    I love tempered glass personally. I can't tell you how many times it has saved my screen from some sort of impact.

    no one uses plastic protectors now right? it doesnt protect you from scratch, drop or pretty much anything, and it feels terrible.

    if you are not good at putting them on yourself, go to apple store and buy a Belkin one from them, it's good quality and they have special device to put the protector on, so it's always perfect fit.

    if you are comfortable with self installation, i'd recommend anker ones. I have a lot of their products, they are like 99% of the top tier brand quality with less than 40% of the price. I used to go with ZAGG because of their lifetime warranty, but then i found out the shipping i paid for is pretty much how much they sell brand new anker ones, and i don't have to remember sending old ones back. anker ones are like 8-9 dollar a piece, you can always get some extra as backups.

    After paying premium prices for these things I now just pick them up from TJ Maxx for like $10.00 (glass ones).

    I also recommend the Spigen air hybrid clear case.

    like i said, i used to buy ZAGG, but you should give anker a try it's pretty much same quality with only replacement price.

    yeah you can see it, but i never have my iPhone out of a case.. so it dosent show as much. Cold/damp fingers (or cold phone) on a film screen.... not smooth. Glass? always smooth. and a heck of a lot easier to clean.

    I was in the AT&T store yesterday on the way home asking about the Next program etc. They actually had 2 iPhone 7 plus cases in stock, One from Speck and I didn't se the other brand name. They said they were the same size, except the camera cutout and the headphone jack.
    I wasn't able to take them out of the box, but placing the speck case on top of a 6 Plus case they looked almost identical size wise.

    Thanks. I have a few 6S+ cases that would work until I find a 7+ case I like.

    Dimensions are the same but cutouts are not. You'll be blocking one of the camera lenses.

    Screen protectors are one of the highest margin in phone accessories. Seriously, a small plastic film cutout for $10-$20?
    We have technologies like gorilla glass, oleophobic coating, etc, and we want to cover it with a piece of plastic film. I don't get it, but to each his/her own.

    The screen protectors are actually the same as the 6S, so there's going to be an abundance to choose from.

    I'm thinking the same thing. As long as the Leather case has enough of a lip to protect from face down drops I think I'll skip this part unless people tell me its really really necessary.

    I have never used a screen protector on my iPhones, but we recently upgraded our home lighting to LED, and I suddenly see several scratches on my 6S. And I baby this thing. Don't work outdoors, keep it really clean, never put keys in my right front pocket. I'm going to get a screen protector for my 7 Plus. So far I purchased a Tech Armor on Amazon for like $9. I like the look of the Cinder screen protector since I never use a case, but they don't have any for the 7 yet. I'm also thinking the Belkin glass protector looks good, but it's not for sale yet.

    I just bought some Maxboost protectors to use until an updated Godosmith 3D is released. That one was awesome for my 6s.
