    Just wanted to let everyone know that I tried two different screen protectors for the SE, and I wanted to let you know how I felt about each.

    The Maxboost one was the one that I tried first. It was pretty good, and easy to install. No deadened sensitivity, and the cut was perfect. However, it was VERY easy to scratch. It had several scratch marks all over the surface in about two weeks. I ordered a different one from amFilm to give it a try.

    The amFilm one was about the same as the MaxBoost one in terms of application and fit. No issues at all. This one has performed much better in terms of scratches. I did not change anything about my daily activities, and two weeks later, it's still looking good.

    Had a drop scare eariler-- dropped the phone from my car when I was getting out onto concrete, and the screen protector is still fine. No damage. I felt inspired to write this because of that accident earlier.

    I hope this helped someone, and thanks for reading!

    My wife's amFilm is also holding up very well. She's quite pleased with it.

    That's good to hear. I just ordered an amFilm protector for my SE that should be arriving on Friday.

    Just wanted to come back and say the amFilm protector is brilliant. This was the easier application for a screen protector I've ever used. I'll be using these exclusively from now on.

    Thank you so much for your post. I've added the Amfilm to my cart for my daughter and myself. Now if only the actual SE was in stock in my local Apple Store!

    Update, thanks again for recommending this product. I finally got two SEs for our family. The screen protectors went on incredibly easily. I didn't even need to watch any installation video. I got a good fit on both SEs and so far they are playing nice with our cases, though it's only been a few hours.

    I have the MaxBoost and I have a halo effect all around the top and bottom of the screen. I'll try the amfilm. Thank you!

    You don't have the halo?
