Glass gets my vote !

Been using it on my iPhone 5 - 5S, and now the 6+

Also have it on my Note 3 and love the feel!

Been wondering the same thing. What's the difference between the two? I'm on the fence as to which one I wanna get as well.

Do you really need this?
I still use screen protectors for 1 reason: if my phone falls, and it survives, at least it won't get scratched. My previous 4s, when I took off the protector, it fell a couple of days later and there was a scratch on the screen. Point is, iPhone 6 may not be that easy to scratch, but if it falls, a high quality screen protector definitely can save the screen. You just never know when such circumstance will occur.

I went with the HDX for my return to screen protectors. I last used one when I got my iPhone 4. I like the feel of the HDX and it seems like it does provide decent protection. The one thing that is driving me crazy is the "case friendly" sizing... it just is not big enough and distracting (to me).

I prefer the glass to the HDX. I've used both on my 5 and 5s, and now I have the glass on my 6 plus. I don't think there is any comparison in tactile feel. The glass feels like you're not using a protector, and while the HDX feels better than many other protectors out there it still doesn't feel like glass. That's just my opinion.

The only thing is the glass won't cover edge to edge on the 6 because of the curved glass, and it will likely need to be replaced more than once. The HDX still looked as good on day 365 as it did on day 1. I'm willing to replace more often though to have the glass and Zagg has one of the best warranties out there for replacements.

I totally agree with your comments, but I think feeling the edge and the lack of coverage would drive me crazy.

Do you find your fingers hitting the edge of the glass?

Not at all, but it may be because I'm using an Apple leather case and the lip of the case is higher than the screen protector so my finger or thumb will hit the case before I feel the drop off at the edge of the glass. For the most part, I think I've modified my swipe habits in the 2 short days I've had the phone and I'm not even hitting the edge of the case when I swipe most times.

I've been considering the glass for my 6 plus. I know zagg at the retail stores at least as of launch weekend was offering to do custom cut backs for the iPhone 6 Plus as well.

I have no worries about bending, but getting the back to be a bit grippier would be a huge nice to have.

I posted this in another thread as well:

Ultimately, I kinda stumbled on the HDX. I wanted a matte back and was too impatient to wait on delivery from BSE. The HDX is like the glass and Invisishield had a baby. I have used the Zagg glass on my last 2 phones and always loved it. After trying the HDX, I do not feel the need for the glass. Plus I got a perfect install without any dust or specks even looking in bright sunlight. That fact alone is worth a bunch to me since that is very hard to do.

No problem fitting with the case. The HDX and the glass version only cover the flat section of the screen leaving plenty of room.

From what I've seen the luxe doesn't have the adhesive on the entire screen just the edges. Makes for a bad seal. I think it was on YouTube. Mobile reviews dot eh.
