    I have been looking at screen protectors, I see a lot of glass ones. I bought a case and it came with a plastic film that's peel and stick. Would the glass one be any better protection than the film as far as scratches or dropping the phone goes? Thanks!

    I use both glass and the regular film.... The glass is OK but once cracked it's a wrap. I been through 3 tempered glass screen protector already! I m on my 4th it's white look just like the front of iPhone... The regular films I have used but barely... I also used the 360 tempered glass privacy screen protector....for the nosey people during my commute or at work!

    Thanks for sharing, that looks very cool!

    I use screen protection, really didn't want to be one of the many people I have seen walk around with a cracked screen for their iPhone. I have only tried the glass ones.

    I never had a cracked screen but I guess because I always keep screen protection on... Because god knows I drop my phones often enough! Lol

    I've used the Spigen Tempered glass on previous phones, me and my friends swear by them.

    They are very translucent to you don't need to adjust brightness on your phone really to see through your device tho glare can be a slight issue in very extreme lighting situations.

    Before they were very expensive but now it seems you can grab one for less than $20, the quality is the same which is very good. I think if your going to buy a case for your phone, it should be met with a tempered glass screen protector.

    I've used as few and right now I'm using a glass one from the dollar store, they all work the same to me. I've never had the holo effect on any of my screens 1.00-30.00 range. Really a screen protector isn't needed

    Just wondered if the screen protector actually helps if dropped. To all who use your screen naked, are you seeing fine scratching from pockets or purses?

    I prefer the crystal plastic ones to the glass as they're thinner and not as obvious that it doesn't go to the edge (in my opinion). the glass is too distracting to me whereas I don't see the thin plastic ones.
    while not a necessity, these screens can scratch, so if that's something you want to avoid, a good protector is a must.

    My 5 scratched early on from being in my pocket, but not with keys or anything. Not sure what caused it. My 4 had no protection. Since the experience with my 5 I always put one on first thing. As for drops, some of the glass ones say they protect your screen that way but I use a case so not a concern.

    I use a glass screen protector, but I'm sorry I can't tell you which one. When I got my 6s in December (thanks Santa) I had already ordered a case and glass screen protector. I am HORRIBLE at putting them on, and ruined it. So I went to Radio Shack and found a good one, and the guy there was very kind and put it on for me. It's worked really well!

    I use Zagg glass protectors. I use them more for preventing scratches to my screen than anything else. I am careful with my phone, but on occasion it travels in a pocket with other things, especially when I ride my motorcycle. I do get small scratches on the protector so I can only assume that I would end up with them on my screen if not protected.

    I always use a screen protector! I, like robertk328, use the clear/crystal plastic ones. My brand of choice at present is Ringke Invisible Defender. You get 4 in the pack for under 10 bucks if memory serves.

    Oh u do get scratches when I had note 4 I read same thing on other forums that the screen is durable it won't scratch you don't need the screen protectors....blah blah blah...lies I went without a SP got a scratch from keys in my bag...I m on idevice forums same stuff idevice will not get scratched no SP needed! Wish I had a few of my friends/family phones to show their screens they thought same thing! Now I m dwl....u would think for the large amount of money being charged for these products they would make a phone that is more durable! But that would defeat the purpose....no one would need to get new accessories or phones! But if u look at supply and demand these products r not built to last they r built to deteriorate over time so consumers have to stay buying new accessories or new device because their original crapped out! Money making business!

    I see what you're saying and while I do use a SP, I still think the devices are built to last. Like a vehicle, if you take care of it you won't have any issues. The main reason I even switch devices is due to changes in tech, not hardware deterioration

    Same reason I switched...u have a point as well it also depends on the job u do and ur lifestyle if the phones will or can stand the test of time and ur usage of it..I rather not take the chance and slap a gd case and SP on it! Cost too much to walk around with phone looking like it's been to s chop shop and back...imoho

    Try the zagg privacy screen. It doesn't make the screen darker
