    I'd say the Glas.tR is probably one of the nicest (and reflects it in the price)

    I've got mine on order and I'm very excited - how was your application process? I've had mixed reviews that it does work like in the video, that it doesn't...

    Honestly I asked my friend to do it because he's something like a perfectionist. There was a lot of dust flying around which made it a little hard. So stay clear of dust when applying it

    I ordered a screen protector from Clearplex, a company who manufactures protection film for vehicle windshields. I haven't had any past experience with them, either for my car or iPhone. But, they shot an iPhone 5 with a gun in a YouTube video, it survived with no cracked glass, and it seemed pretty real. Plus, it's $15. That's not much to loose. I ordered a protector for front and back for $23. You can get 15% off if you use the coupon code "extremeiphone" at checkout.

    I have always used skins from Bestskinsever.com on all my devices. They require soap/water to apply and usually a day to dry but never have to worry about those funky lint bubbles.

    Just installed a set of SwitchEasy pure "Ultra Clear". I'm impressed. I've always used PowerSupport in the past but I will use these going forward.

    I vote Zagg HD. People cannot even tall Zo have one. And your fingers slide right across it, almost better than the glass

    I want to try a GLAS.tR, but I've got a perfectly installed Zagg HD at the moment.

    Definitely the glass screen protectors. SGP glas.t / glas.tr and Bodyguardz Pure glass.

    I have the Pure and its pretty amazing. Feels just like iPhone glass...

    There are some Bodyguardz 50% off coupons floating around so you can snag one for 20 bucks. That's what I did.

    Man this Bodyguardz Pure is legit. It's real glass so it feels just like the real iPhone screen.

    I kind of like the idea of the Bodyguardz Pure as it is half as thick as the SPG Glass.t. Do you have the Pure? And can you compare to the SPG?

    I use Ghost Armor for my phones for the past few years and I've been happy with them

    I do have the pure on my black iPhone 5 and it is the best screen protector I have ever had. I like to use my pone naked so this is a good compromise. I do not have the SPG but using the coupon codes that were on the forums (search and u should find them) I only paid 20$ for it instead of 40$.

    I'll use this (or another glass protector) or no protector at all and suffer the scratches.

    For me, film protectors aren't worth the plasticky feeling they give to the screen.
