    After many attempts, I've been unable to successfully reach this manufacturer. I've had other members PM me with the same issue. Since the manufacturer is AWOL, I can no longer recommend this product and thus have removed my review.

    Looks great for those who need to swap cases.

    Interesting, looking at their site, you can currently not purchase the black 0.2 mm edge to edge, says new stock expected 4/10...maybe they listened to the complaints about the mixed stock of ones with the screen outline and the revised version without, and are eating the outline version and not selling anything but the revised version? If so I'll definitely be trying one out.

    EDIT: What was it like to remove the previous one, in terms of the adhesive?

    Click the link, then screen protectors, then iPhone 6. Second one right in the middle column of the page.

    Great glass for case swaps and protection. I would use it with a case that has a raised lip.

    They did listen to the feedback. Hopefully by 4/10 they'll have the edge-to-edge black without outline. Just be sure to confirm with, admin@benks.us before you order.

    The other one was super easy to remove and left no residue.

    Hmmm, the review says it's 0.15mm but the one on their website says 0.30mm.

    Nevermind, for some reason Explorer was blocking stuff on their site so it wouldn't display the option to choose iPhone 6. It would only take me to the 0.30mm one but I tried on FireFox and it worked fine. I see it now. Very weird!

    Cool!! I think this is an excellent protector for case swappers and tight cases. I think you'll be impressed how insanely thin this glass is. I am.

    Do you use a CandyShell Grip?

    I have been flipping between the Grip, UAG, and Otterbox Commuter

    I really don't think it's TRULY an edge to edge screen protector. I bought one, haven't installed it yet, but it looks like it's EXACTLY the same size as my current run of the mill tempered glass screen protector (indeed thinner). The other one I bought (a true edge to edge), is longer and wider than my screen protector, and won't fit with some cases.

    Are you sure you're in the right thread?

    This review is about a protector that is not edge to edge.

    I stand corrected, thought this one was an edge to edge screen protector (I guess I bought the wrong one). In their ad on their website it says:

    - Corning® Gorilla® Glass
    - 0.20 mm thickness - Worlds thinnest
    - True edge-to-edge coverage

    No worries. :)

    I reviewed that one as well. It didn't work with 2 of 3 of my cases. It worked fine with my Magpul case. I think all the edge to edge protectors extend to the phone's perimeter at slighty different lengths.

    I reviewed this one because, lots of folks like swapping cases and this protector will have no issues with cases.

    Weird thing is, like I mentioned before, doesn't seem like it goes edge to edge. Maybe my 52 year old eyes are playing tricks with me.

    True edge to edge would have to follow the entire curve of the glass. I'm not sure many do that, at this point. There's going to be some kind of gap that collects dust. That's why this 51 year old said no more edge to edge. This is now installed and I'm calling it a day. :)

    I've read about the IMOS in the other thread, but $60 bucks for a screen protector is a bit much. Just join me and call it a day! :D

    I can't be sure. The protector is extremely thin at 0.15 mm. As long as there's some play or give under the plastic, it might.
