    None. I got one on sale from some website, and it's not nearly as good as the no-screen protector phone. Mine is in a case, but that's it. I've never had scratching issues with my iPhone 4 or 5, so I imagine the 6 is just as good.

    Power Support Anti-Glare. Nothing close to it. They just opened pre-orders today. You won't regret it.

    You absolutely 100% DON'T need a screen protector. The glass is made to be scratch-resistant. Go ahead and rub keys on it, it won't scratch.

    I don't use it for protection. Makes the screen feel SO much better. And, yes, it can be scratched.

    I'm not using one. I think the screen will be fine. My iPhone 4 looks the same as the day I got it

    My wife's last iPhone hd plenty of scratches on the screen. I assure you, it can be scratched. For this phone, we both got the zag glass screen protectors. She put hers on and it feels better than the stock screen. I haven't put mine on yet because I think my display might have a problem and may need to be exchanged.

    This new screen feels amazing. A screen protector will ruin the experience, not to mention it really is not necessary unless you carry your phone in your purse.

    Also, the new screen has a slight curve along the edges. It's gonna be tough to find a screen protector that wont peel off over time.

    I got the Zagg glass and hate it (and loved the Zagg for my 4 and 5). It is nowhere near large enough and looks tacky as hell.

    Please don't ruin the new screen tech with outdated notions of what you should do with your smart phone.

    Agreed, best screen protector. Also the best for finger prints.

    Was going to pre-order but found them in my local Apple Store today.

    First time ever not using screen protectors on a new iPhone. The curved edge will be tough. Instead got AppleCare for the first time ever.

    Please forgive the horrible quality of the photo (taken with an iPad) but it does show the outline of the screen protector and how small it is.

    Curious whether the Power Support is as small as the Zagg pictured in this thread. I have an iCarez (got it cheap while waiting for Power Support) and it looks the same as the Zagg.

    I'm thinking the films have to be smaller because of the slight curvature of the screen towards the edges (would be hard to go all the way to the edge without bunching at the corners)

    I don't understand, are you saying you already have the power support SP on? How?

    I have a Zagg glass screen saver in my 6+. It's glass and not plastic so it feels like I have nothing on it. First time trying the glass protector and I am impressed!

    Does the screen feel any different? i have never used a glass one. I am searching for a privacy screen protector for the plus

    I got a Muvit tempered glass protector. It is also kind of not wide enough for the screen but there is no distortion or color that appears. I can live with it.

    Never used any screen protectors and never had a scratch on any of my screens. Seems like all the hard screen protectors will have to be a little small than the screen as they will not bend around the radius at the edges.

    Nothing yet, all screen protectors seem to have bad reviews - I don't know which one to get. :(

    Let us know how you feel when it does scratch, nothing is truly stratch resistant. :rolleyes:

    I'm currently using the one that came with it lol I always leave it on as long as it lasts.
    I've cut a hole out for Touch ID, and used a sharp knife to cut a hole in it above the speaker grill so I can hear people.
    I've also chopped the bottom tab off so it doesn't cover the lightning port.

    I don't like putting protectors on until the phone is a few week old, just in case there's any problems and I need to return it.

    As for screens not scratching.. I have several very fine scratches on my 5S. I only ever have it in my pocket or on the desk, not in a purse (not a fan of man-bags) with keys or anything.
    I do keep a tissue in that same pocket, but wouldn't have thought that scratches the screen..

    Outdated? That's fairly ridiculous. These screens still scratch quite a bit and are easily broken through even the most simple drop.

    I'll admit simple slip-on covers are not good, but a good tempered glass protector is essential once the new ones come out. It will save your phone and not even be visible.

    Some "outdated notions" of protectors have saved many of broken screens on the 5s.
