What do you guys like for screen protectors? ...

I have the 4/7" iPhone 6. Bought some very early for $7 online. Installed it only to realize it covered the front camera, even though it claims to be specifically for this phone. So that's going back.

Sooo ... I was looking to just get a simply sub-$10 screen protector that fits. But now I'm reading about some of these thing pieces of glass that are more expensive, but some people rave about them.

What do you like? Have you ever tried the glass ones like 'TechArmor Ballistic Glass' or 'iPhone 6 Screen Protector GLAS.tR SLIM?'

Thanks in advance.

Cheap 10 for $3 off ebay. crystal clear, fits perfectly. The curved glass does not allow the protector to go right to the edge.

I have tried the glass ones, but they are thick and it makes the home button feel lie its in a hole. I didnt like it.

I will always go with Ghost Armor. Looks invisible. Easy to clean and reduces fingerprints a lot. I have tried Zagg and another one before but didn't like those. Been using Ghost Armor since the 5. Lifetime warranty too.

Second for Ghost Armor. I've had every iPhone wrapped and I absolutely love it. I left my 5 on the roof of my car when placing my daughter in her carseat. Flew off going 35MPH, not a dent on it. =) If it starts to loosen they will replace it for free.

I have the Zagg glass one also. I REALLY like it. I haven't used screen protectors for years because I hated the way they felt. But then a coworker had a glass one and it felt awesome. I just got the Zagg glass because that's what Best Buy had day one. Its also nice because it has a lifetime warranty so if I break my phone, I don't also have to worry about spending another $35 on a screen protector.

I am using a Zagg Glass on my 6 plus. NO complaints. Its smooth and really clear.

I used Ghost Armor previously, but the company went through a re-branding, as I believe they are getting sued by Zagg. So there are only 4-6 Ghost Armor "stores" now where there used to be tons.

Clear-Coat has taken over the kiosks and business, and it's just as good, if not better, than Ghost Armor. It's a wet appliqué, and their all over coverage of the phone costs about $45 - and it is all over, back, sides, front. As a previous poster mentioned, lifetime warranty. This is the read deal, I have used it since the 5 as well and my phone stays mint all year round.

Always just get the dry apply ones from Xtremeguard for my phones. They always have 85% off coupon codes so you can get 6 for $5 shipped. I've tried several wet apply ones like Zagg and Skinomi which I currently have on my iPad mini and while they may be tougher they always have a wierd texture to them and wierd imperfections in them. My dry apply ones almost always go on without bubbles etc or if there are bubbles they are on the very edge not in view and covered by case anyway.

Another vote for zagg glass. It feels better than any screen protector. Already saved my plus screen. Only downside is the glass broke but lifetime warranty.


To be clear I mean the screen protector glass broke. Not my iphone glass
