    So I am shopping for a screen protector and case for my incoming Plus, but wanted to get some input on the different type of protectors.

    I've used many different protectors on my phones in the past, but never tried a "glass" screen before. Are they worth it? I've used 'best skins ever' and 'zagg' full body wraps (screen and body) as well as the matte protectors they sell in the Apple store.

    So those of you who use the glass protectors, are they worth it? Or is a regular matte/crystal screen protector the move to make?

    I see Zagg has a glass and so does Spigen (as well as others I assume), and because of all the options available, I am not sure which direction to go and order. And was also wondering if these glass screen protectors allow for a case to be put on the phone.

    Thanks.

    I've always been a fan of the Spigen stuff. It's never failed on me before. Even after two years (from 5 at launch to 5S today), my Spigen case and screen protector look almost like new.

    I've never understood the desire for screen protectors, personally.
    Screens these days are quite scratch proof on their own.

    I use Zagg Glass on my 5S

    Extra protection for anything aggressive that would impact it.

    Zagg Glass is what I use and it's phenomenal. Even repels finger prints better than the actual iPhone screen.

    I'm still debating whether or not I'm going to get a screen protector for my new 6 plus. I don't have one currently for my 5S and the screen doesn't have a scratch on it and I have dropped it a few times.

    Unless your screen is made out of diamonds and you baby the **** out of your device your screen will scratch without a screen protector. Even if it's minute scratches that aren't visible with the screen on they are still there.

    Many people like to keep their device in top condition to get the most moolah when they do sell.

    Exactly the reason I put it in a case with a screen protector. I managed to sell 5 for 40 less than I bought if for and will likely do the same with my 5S if my GF doesn't want it.

    I would say yes for glass screen protectors. Look for those with good oleophobic coating and they'll feel as nice to the touch as going naked.

    While it's true that most glass screens are pretty durable and resistant to daily wear and tear, I have seen scratches on even the latest gorilla glass screens from careless owners. Also micro scratches may still show up over time due to the wear on the coating on the phone's glass screen. To me glass screen protectors are a minor investment that keeps the screen clear and perfect at all time. When the glass screen protector gets worn out, I just replace them and it's good as new. If it was the actual phone that got scratched, it would cost way more to replace.

    I'll be getting one for my 6+ tomorrow. I was gonna get a Spigen one. I've used them multiple times before in the last few years so I was going to continue to support them. Sadly it seems they are not out yet. So I'm going to go with zagg. Just because I can go to a local best buy and pick one up.

    I use a brand called pthink on Amazon and they are very good quality and have not paid over 15 for it so they are a great deal. They do not yet have one for the 6+ so I had to buy the Zagg glass today since I received my 6+. It is nice but $40 is too expensive for a tempered glass protector IMO, but it does fit nicely and does the job. Depends on if you can wait for the rest to hit Amazon or ebay.

    So what's the difference between Zagg HDX and Zagg Glass?

    How are the Zagg or Spigen glass protector widths? I see pics and they look about a mm too thin to cover the LCD. I just may go with the cheap tech armor plastic ones for now.

    Do they sell the Zagg Glass in stores?

    If they do what stores are they in?

    or do everyone order theirs from the website?

    That is because they are "case safe" meaning if you put a case on the phone it wont touch the screen protector.

    I will say the selling point for the Spigen is the rounded edges...I like that idea

    The Zagg has rounded edges also. Most of them are now. Not a curved screen protector but rounded edges.
