    I bought Zagg's glass screen shield, it went on great and looks great too.
    I started going with Zagg because their replacement policies are excellent as well as SC. After trying to deal with Spigen and having a lot of issues with their glass screen shields recently I stopped buying them.

    Spigen's cases however are still excellent.

    Was it simple to align? Did you need the screen lit?

    It comes with a yellow film over it to assist with installation

    It Depends. I've gotten quite good at screen protector installs, but the Zagg glass ones are pretty easy.

    I bought the hdx and liked it. I don't know why they aren't offering full phone protection like before but I have my 6+ in a case so I'm not too worried

    I got the Zagg Glass. I used the Hinge method (search on youtube if you don't know what it is). So it's perfectly aligned. You will need tape, and rubber band and cleaning tools.

    One issue with Zagg Glass on the 6/6+ is that it is edge to edge of the screen and you need a lot of patience.

    Will the edge to edge affect cases?

    Well because it's edge to edge of the screen itself (it does not cover the entire front class) so it should not affect any cases.

    Is there a noticeable difference between the HDX and glass?

    Zagg HDX is the way to go, without question!

    I've ALWAYS been a HUGE fan of ZAGG products. The HDX is simply amazing compared to what I had for my 4S which was still quality. They (Zagg) say it only has 99% clarity compared to glass, but I'll be damned if anyone I've handed the phone to even knew it had a screen protector on it.

    Two people actually said

    "You should consider a screen protector."

    as I smiled and said

    "Already got one."

    One of those two said

    "Why haven't you put it on yet?"

    No kidding!!! Keep in mind, I'm incredibly good at applying screen protectors as I'm BEYOND anal when it comes to attention to detail... but these are QUALITY products that feel like they belong on the product and came stock with the phone.

    Check out these videos if you aren't convinced.

    Also, NO, I do not work for Zagg.

    I have the Zagg Glass, and I love it. Feels great, looks great, and hopefully is reasonably protective.

    Got a great deal on it at my local Costco Wireless Kiosk for 27.99, and they offered to install it for free.

    I asked this question in another thread but I'm just trying to get some answers.

    Does anyone know if glass screen protectors can restrict heat dissipation on the phone and cause overheating issues ?

    I had a glass protector on my 5 and the battery expanded/bloated and popped my screen out. Not sure why this happened but I've heard overheating as a common explanation.

    Now I'm not sure if putting a layer of glass on the glass screen can significantly prohibit heat dissipation and cause this but I just wanted to be sure.

    Is it true that the Zagg protectors can heal previous scuff marks?

    That's interesting... Probably a better question for an Apple Genius. Does Apple sell glass protectors? If so, I doubt this would hold true. They're usually pretty good about knowing what's good/bad for their devices.

    ----------


    ZAGG HDX is "self healing", but not to the glass it is protecting, simply itself. If you have a previous scratch on your screen, you're stuck with that. However, the ZAGG WILL fix itself if applied properly. Usually takes about 24 hours and if it doesn't fix itself, they'll replace it for free. I've never had my ZAGG rip or tear in the three years it's been on my 4S

    Correct. The HDX is the self healing military/aerospace grade material.

    I decided to give the Zagg HDX a try for my 6+ after reading the reviews. Right now I have a tech armor ballistic glass on my phone that I bought from amazon. Zagg HDX Came out to 19.99 after using coupon code DRIPPLER.
