    I just recently use a tempered glass screen protection but then i can barely detect any wifi network. Does the tempered glass affect the wifi connection? anyone having the same problem?

    Apple fixed old crap routers to work but crippled new great routers !!!

    Tempered glass would have no effect on wifi performance

    tried remove the back tempered glass and its back to normal. It might be the back tempered glass along with the bumper.

    Does tempered glass on the 6 or 6+ make the screen less readable?

    It looks like the product you are using has a thin metal film under the glass. That's probably what's causing your issue. If it's paint it could still have metal oxide in it.

    No, it won't affect the screen readability if you choose a quality product. I recommend the iLoome tempered glass as it actually covers the rounded edge of the screen.

    My friend is using the same product as mine but in diff colour and he doesn't have any problem with it. Idk, but maybe the material of the phone's bumper that I'm not sure what it actually is. It could be the bumper + the back tempered glass.

    Yea something like the back glass may have metal coating and may interfere with reception issues.

    I had a case for my dumb phone that had a metal coating and my reception was horrible. After I took of the case, the phone went back to normal.

    I'm using the Zagg glass screen protector. No case. For others like me, do you lay your phone face down or face up?
