    It seems that there is no best glass screen protector for the iPhone 6s Plus yet. What is the best non-glass screen protector for this device then?

    I have already ordered an Otterbox defender. Have not decided if I will take take the protector which came with the Otterbox or not. Will decide upon arrival. I also plan to buy a clear case. Depending on the occasion, I switch between the two.

    Non glass there is plenty. Media devil. Tuffskinz. Anker. Power support.

    Search Amazon for reviews. Much easier to find a good non glass protector!

    I've been using TechArmor and so far it's great.

    In the case of non glass, it is recommended to get the full cover version or round edge?

    Honestly the best screen protector for any iPhone is none at all and has been that way for years. They simply don't need them unless you abuse your phone.

    About the only reasonable need for a screen protector on an iPhone is if you are in a profession that requires you to use your iPhone in a very extreme environment that exposes it to very hard and scratching environments such as a metal-working or sand-blasting.

    If you don't believe me then the best screen protector for you is the most expensive one that the marketing pros can convince you to waste your money on.

    But from youtube videos, it looks like when the phone is dropped face down, the screen scattered. I don't know about the 6s plus in specific but I have seen lots of scattered iPhone screens in Japan.

    A screen protector will do nothing to protect against a shattered screen. That's the purpose of a good case! Certainly don't confuse the need for a screen protector and a good case. By all means put your iPhone in a good case as soon as you get it out of the Apple packaging. Any of the Speck (http://www.speckproducts.com/) or other reputable cases will protect from accidental drops.

    I have always had screen protectors on my phones. The plastic type until the glass screen peotectors came out. For my 6 Plus I purchased a few different brands from the non edge to edge to many brands of the edge to edge version. I was totally happy with the Benks ultra thin edge to edge protector.

    So when I upgraded to the 6S Plus, I figured I'd just stick with the Benks and call it a day. I got a great install on the first try and was a happy camper. After about a month on the phone, the screen protector had developed some very tiny spots by the side that wouldn't stay down. I tried a couple more Benks, Daswise and Imos brands but none would give me a perfect install. I'm the family and work installer so I usually have no problems. I contacted Benks and received some replacements but still could not get a good install.

    So I'm now going without a screen protector. I guess for me, it's better to have a screen with some micro scratches that I can only see when I hold the phone up to the light rather than a crappy looking screen protector with bubbles that stick out like a sore thumb.

    None is the best, there are so many screen protector concept such as PE film, tempered glass, Anti-peer and I don't see there are much difference, we've been asked to handle our device all the time and will think highly of the protector if we drop the iphone without screen get broken, yeah, the protector will do something, however, it will not do much as imagined, more powerful in mind than practice...

    anti-shatter, anti-blue light, anti-scratch, etc. I think it's all marketing fluff.

    I've been having problem with glass screen protectors. I've used 3 different edge to edge protectors (first two a brand i can't remember right now, third a dawise one) and they keep cracking. This might be due to my wallet style case, but honestly, they crack and I haven't dropped or put that much pressure on it. I'm probably going to go with plastic screen protector and just keep replacing it since the plastic ones get bubbles and scratch eventually but I'm sad that I can't find a decent glass protector that doesn't crack. i forget which the first one was.

    Anyone else have this problem? Should I just not go with an edge to edge one?

    I've got a Spigen Crystal on my 6S Plus. I like it a lot. Before it I had another brand plastic protector and it smudged horribly. The Spigen is worlds better in this regard.

    Fit is good because it goes a millimeter over the viewable screen area on each side. A lot of other protectors end exactly on the edge of the viewable screen which looks poor to me.
