    After I made the thread I noticed that they are not shipping yet. You go through Spigen directly or amazon?

    Through Spigen.

    It's on back order, so when you order it, shipping is 1-2 weeks as stated on their website :)

    Touch ID works well with the Glas.Tr. The cut out is big, there still some around the metal ring.

    U have the glas.tr or glas.tar nano slim?

    They may have increased the diameter of the home button

    This is my first glas.t, so i cannot really comment on the difference between the last time glas.t and the now glas.t.

    Don't have the Spigen but I do have the BodyGuardz Pure. I can't imagine why the Spigen would affect the touch ID. The Pure for the 5S is the same protector as on the 5. They didn't change the hole size and it works perfect with the touch ID. Hole size doesn't seem to affect performs at all.

    Are we still talking about protectors?

    Think I am going with the Pure. Heard the Spigen coating wears off. Anyone have experience with that?

    That's what I heard.

    I was debating between the pure and nano slim, but decided to try the nank because the pure is thicker

    Put one on my Daughters 5c (pure) and really can't tell the difference between no protector and the pure. I like the idea of a bit thicker as it should offer a bit more protection at least in theory.

    Just got mine today. Put it on perfectly (super surprised by that). Touch ID works flawlessly as well. It's a lot thinner than the Glas.t slim I used to have on my iPhone 5. The rounded off edges are a lot more comfortable when using the home button! REALLY happy with this product!!! :D:D:D

    Hey buddy, what date did you order it?

    And does the home button cut-off fit perfectly?

    I ordered mine exactly one week ago on amazon. It shipped out on the 27th, and I somehow got it on the 28th. Amazon listed my estimated arrival date to be Oct 2-4. After looking at the home button with the slim nano on the phone, there's about a 1-2mm amount of space from the cut-out to the actual metal ring around the home button if you get it perfectly placed.

    I am using the Glass TR Slim and everything including touch ID works perfectly.

    The only problem i am facing is that the back panel protector which covers the middle part of the phone scratches very very easily from laying down on the table.

    And no my pocket does not contain any keys or coins

    Decided to preorder the Glas.tR Nano Slim from Amazon. It's telling me it'll ship on October 16th... So we'll see how it holds up.

    So you have no problem scanning your fingers on the home button? I have the same one for the galaxy s4 and love it... If you tell me you have no problem with the home button ill order one right now and should be here in the next 2 days max!

    nope, no problem at all..
    the diameter for home button cut out is larger than the home button itself. it never covers any part of the home button.
    Touch ID works seamlessly.

    If it helps at all, I got the iloome flex, it is .12 mm i believe.

    No issues at all with touch id, and I got it on perfectly!
