    Has anyone noticed that mostly all the screen protectors available are mostly tempered glass?

    Usually there are loads of clear film type protectors out by now, but I can't see many

    Wonder why it's only the Glass type being offered at the moment

    I have noticed this as I normally just use a film type protector, in fact never used glass before, but ended up getting one for the iPad Pro and love it except for the fact that you get some wavy lines if drawing slowly with the pencil...

    I like the tempered glass because they tend to not smudge or scuff as much and more truly replicate the iPad's screen. The plastic film ones really start looking like garbage after a while and even seem to get scratched by being wiped off.

    I'd prefer not to use one on my 10.5, but I did manage to scratch my screen using the Pencil on the 9.7" so I'm taking no chances.

    You scratched the screen with or without one?

    I have scratched my old 9.7 screen with the pencil, so severe that it created a "rainbow effect" in the scratch area.
    I've decided not to use the Pencil on my new 10.5 until I could put a tempered screen protector on this time. I plan to use the 10.5 for the next 1.5 - 2 years (a typical period till a new iPad comes along), and I couldn't stand the feeling of a scratched screen. A few bump on the chassis wouldn't bother me but a scratch screen would.

    Just put on Zagg HD Glass. Very nice. Absolutely no glare or halo-ing.

    I have a Zagg for the iPad Air 2, but it has a rainbow effect. I got an amFilm version for the iPad Pro 10.5 and it has no rainbow effect at all, plus it was 1/3 the price.

    I tried to convince myself Zagg was better because of the price, but it's just more expensive probably due to marketing costs. I can't speak for the 10.5 though.
