    Could possibly be tempered or gorilla glass.I just purchased applecare+ for my 5s yesterday so Ive started carrying my iphone without a case and went JUST TODAY with a cheapie screen protector and it got scratched up bad like its been on there for a year so Ive got me a colored tempered glass screen protector on the way from ebay for under $7.I do have a question does anyone have one of these on a 5s?

    I've always opted for the Power Support brand when I choose to use a screen protector. The problem is since Apple quite selling them and replaced them with the horrible Belkin ones they sell now, they're a little more difficult to get.

    I ordered a set of the anti-glare from a company called Wonder J Products out of Japan. They came in different packaging than what they sold in here in the US but are still the same quality product.

    I paid about $22 after shipping for a set of two.

    I get about 3 off amazon for $2. It's absurd what people pay for a thin piece of plastic. You can even tell my phone has one on it so don't say they are crap.

    Do yourself a favor and get a slim tempered glass protector. 1000% worth the extra money to have 9H protection and the feeling of no protector at all. I am using a MIME right now, but there are plenty of other options.

    Another vote for PowerSupport. I order them off Amazon, again more expensive than they use to be, but so worth it. I can use one for almost a year, so $11 a year to keep my phone's screen perfect (plus I love the feel of Anti-Glare).

    I agree with you. Since having Apple devices (iPod touch 4G, 4S and now my 5S) I have always got cheap eBay screen protectors, 6 for like 4$ and they always work great. People pay an arm and a leg for a little plastic sheet, its crazy.

    I just ordered a tempered glass screen protector for my 5S. (6.50$ on eBay) Never tried a glass protector before.

    Another vote for Power Support. Get the 2 pack from Amazon. BTW, I also have the Power Support iPhone 5 case that is only sold in Japan. You can order on Amazon and it is the best low profile case you can get. I just moved it from my iPhone 5 to my new 5S and it looks amazing.

    Power support has the best quality clear & anti-glare (I use the anti-glare) and they are made in Japan. Very good quality for $14/2 pack.

    Spigen also sells quality SPs, on par with PowerSupport. Currently, there's a pack that has 3 front SP and 1 back film for $7.95 on Amazon.

    I have Bodyguardz tempered glass on my iPhone 5 and my iPad mini. Like the protection combined with the feel of glass. They came with home button stickers to bring the home button flush. I tried them, but actually prefer the exaggerated home button indention.

    People have varying preferences and it's not just about appearance with screen protectors. What is truly absurd is to assume that your specific preferences are universal.

    In any case, you wrote the opposite of what you meant.

    monoprice.com is where I got some for my fiancé's 5s when it arrives. I got a 3 pack of anti-glare and 3 pack of crystal clear for $5.xx shipped. can't beat it, good reviews too. won't ever pay store price for screen protectors, though I don't use one on mine anyways.

    Oh, I didn't see any home button stickers with mine. I, personally, did not like the indentation. Overall, having a glass screen protector was desirable. However, besides the home button issue, I didn't like how some of the air pockets would not dissipate. They did the install for me at the AT&T store. The rep told me that the air pockets should go away in a couple of hours but it didn't. I ended up returning it.

    ----------

    What about screen clarity after the installation? Any pixelation?
