    Not the brand but the type

    Tempered glass?

    Higher quality liquid applicated? (Zagg/tech Armour)

    Cheap cling on type (X5 for $2)

    Many new iPhone's later I've had no problems and never used a screen protector on any of them. I used to put them on my Blackberry but decided I'd see how the Oleophobic coating on the iPhone would hold up. It's been terrific, no scratches at all. Upon close inspection they've held up perfectly...truly amazing.

    MyBat tempered glass .4mm. Overpaid for this, but was bought at the time of phone purchase and have been very happy with fit and quality.

    Prefer the tempered thin glass but I feel they are so hard to get a perfect installation.

    I'm using the HDX Invisible Shield for my 6. Love it. Might go glass eventually though.

    Zagg glass, but do not think it's all that oleophobic.

    I've tried one or 2 tempered glass shields but to be honest, didn't like the feel and didn't like the look of them due to the curbed surface of the iPhone 6.

    I've now gone back to using these:

    Spigen Crystal 3x pack screen protector

    IMO - they look and feel awsome.

    I either use glass, or no screen protector at all. At the moment, I'm not using one.

    I'm very paranoid about getting dust under the screen so I go CRAZY haha. I apply the protector in the bathroom with the hot shower running to get all dust out of the air, then I also use a can of compressed air to make sure the screen is clean.

    Oh I know what you mean. I do the steamy bathroom along with my lint roller and sticky tape. This last time I couldn't get a good install so I'm going protectionless.

    I have been a fan of icarez tempered glass screen protectors for a while now. Very reasonably priced, plus they included a very nice TPU skin case for my IP6, which was a nice gesture. Check them out on amazon.

    I just don't like screen protectors. From my iPad 3, my 4S, and now my 6, I find the glass sufficient if you are careful.

    SP always get dust and dirt at the edges or gold up with a case. They are so difficult to get straight and they always have a piece of dust under them for me! :mad:

    Plastic iCarez HD. I like my SP as thin as possible. Tempered glass is too thick for me. Makes the home button feel very recessed and now with the screen the way it is, I can't stand feeling the edge of the protector around the screen. I haven't tried any edge to edge products. Seems like a big ol' headache.

    I just recently purchased and applied the Spigen Curved Crystal on my I6, and i have to share it's a pain to install. I had to go though the second one that came with it to get it perfect. But the end result, in my opinion, is a good screen protector for the price. I've done many installs on all the iterations of I Phone's since the I3, and this screen protector is the most difficult to get spot on.

    ...how do the 'curved crystal protectors' actually stick to the curved surface of the iPhone 6 screen then? I would have thought that the screen shields would not stick down properly on the curved glass?!
