I have always been in the game of the file based screen protector. I started with the invisible shield back during the original ipod touch and quickly moved away from it due to the wet application.

Over time, I grew very fond of the SGP crystal clear protector. This is what I intended to get for the iPhone 6. However, doing research as I always do, I'm seeing that Zagg is back in the game with their HDX dry application.

I'm also very new to the idea of the tempered glass screen protector as I've never used one before. Considering my iPhone 6 will be in a case such as a Neo Hybrid, Apple leather, etc - what do you think I'm better off with and which one would you recommend due to the fit issues on the 6?

Thanks!

I went with glass this time, although its not a perfect edge to edge fit the feel of it is amzing it does not have the grippy feel that some films have its truely like touching the display itself

I went with Tech Armor

I went with a zagg hdx this time. This is a lot better than some crappy plastic cover. It looks and feels like the iPhone's screen. It also seems easier to clean with less streaks.

I started off with a glass one - went against it because it's simply takes too much away from the design. Settled with a good quality film screen protector.

I just use a silicone case and hopefully should prevent cracks.

In my opinion, getting rid of dust underneath a glass screen protector is really difficult and if you are really really OCD, lints for some reason gets attracted to the sides of the glass screen protector making it really an eye sore.

But for a normal screen protector, it doesn't feel as good and not as protective compared to a glass screen protector.

I've always found Power Support's films to be the best, though a bit pricy. This time I went with the Zagg glass protector on my iPhone 6 Plus and it's better than any film protector and comes with a lifetime replacement warranty.
