    Just ordered a 6S plus and was looking into screen protection.
    Now that most of you have had time to get one, can you recommend me a brand that does not have the halo effect?

    Thanks

    I use Zagg. Expensive till you are on fourth replacement. Chips, cracks, scratches, breaks, misalignment, dust underneath doesn't matter, I order replacement and in days it's here. No issues, no questions

    $30 for a screen protector?? Wow, that's like when the store charges $90 for an HDMI cable.

    Lol. Being somewhat familiar with amazon and it's prices, when I go to a cell phone store, I always feel awful for the people that are paying $30 to $70 for a screen protector that you can get for $10 or less on amazon. I got a two pack for $7.49 on there a while ago, and the quality is perfect. Paid pretty much nothing.

    Exactly. Marketing can do wonders.

    I think it's just a matter of not all tempered glass screen protectors being created equal.

    I'm a smart shopper and I've used cheaper options and wasn't impressed with them ever. So at the end of the day I just feel like you pay for the premium. YMMV obviously so whoever is happier with the other options then more power to them.

    HDMI cables are all digital, meaning of equal picture quality (more or less). I've seen and had many protectors and they vary wildly in clarity, hardness, sheen/rainbow effect, scratch-resistance, size, edges, etc., etc. Your comments suggest that perhaps you haven't had as much experience as others; perhaps not.

    Ditto.

    Ice max is worth the $30+ to some here because it is truly edge to edge and curves with the iPhone screen. Along with that the oleophatic (sp?) coating is amongst the best I've experienced as well as the clarity. In my case I use a minimalist case with no lip over the screen, some go with a skin. In those instances the sharp edges of a typical flat "edge to edge" screen protector are just an ugly feel. Anyway that's my two cents.

    Apples and oranges as stated above. Digital is digital when it comes to HDMI cables. Screen protectors -- especially tempered glass -- are not all identical.

    Maxboost on Amazon works great for me. Inexpensive and no Halo.

    Another vote for me having the worst luck. Can someone please shed some light on this. I'm giving up and going screen protector less. Anyone know if AppleCare + covers major scratches on the screen?

    Maxboost. Supposedly for the iphone 6S.

    See how they just slapped a 6S label on top?

    And this is the new Zagg Glass Luxe!

    I know it's not the alignment since all cutouts are lined up perfectly. Earpiece and home button cutouts line up.

    I've never seen this before. My old 6 had no problem.

    I highly recommend the Benks ultra thin .2. Had one on my 6Plus for 10 months. Tried to go cheaper this time around with my 6S Plus with the Daswise and it was a no go. I purchased 2 of them and couldn't get a perfect install with either. So back to the Benks and perfect on the first try and same with one I bought for my daughter's new phone.

    The Benks is paper thin and I think that's what makes the install so easy with no bubbles or spots that don't stick. The oleophobic coating is super and I've not experienced any chipping on the edges.

    You can purchase the Benks on Amazon.

    Yeah I am in the same boat as you. I have tried the Daswise and the Maxboost. Really nice products but they don't stick to the edges. Maxboost told me they are making one that will work with the "more curved" 6s screens, so I am going to hold out hope for that.

    I think the most frustrating part, is most have 6s screens don't have this problem. So they keep recommending ones that don't work.

    Hahaha see what I mean! If you go to the Godosmith Ice Max 3D Amazon reviews, they clearly show it not sticking to the edges of some of the 6s's. So frustrating! :)
