    I have had the 6+ for less then 24 hours. Just slipped out of my hands like a slippery fish! Haven't bought apple care yet. Had the case off for some reason - won't be doing that anymore.

    Crack! Right on the edge where it must have come in contact with my keyboard.

    It appeared to be broken under the Zagg glass. I carefully removed the Zagg.

    Phew. It was the Zagg that broke not the phone.

    Apple care & new Zagg glass as soon as possible! Yikes.

    Been thinking about purchasing a glass protector. Are they easy to apply ? And say I mess up installation can I peel it up or will it crack ?

    It removes and reinstalls easily. It bends like you wouldn't believe without damage.

    It is hard to align it straight as there is no wiggle room and hard to keep dust away as the bottom side is really sticky. But totally doable.

    A trick I have doing for years when applying these protectors to keep dust off is turn on the shower (HOT) and close the door. Let it get nice and fogged up in there and then apply. I have never once got dust, etc between the phone and protector.

    It is important to apply the protector where there is little or no dust. Just the least bit can mess it up.

    I just clean the screen and sticky side of protector with scotch tape as I apply it. Flawless install.

    You're very lucky, I'm glad it worked out for you!

    Good thing you had the Zagg on, this thread has made me decide to go pick one up tomorrow.

    Speaking of the Zagg Glass, it is truly crystal clear and does not mess with the touch screen precision at all? I'm considering it but I was hoping that OP can shed some light on it since he owns one.

    I have the zagg glass and you can't tell it's on there with exception of seeing the edge. Since the glass curves it only covers the flat portion of the screen. Otherwise you can't tell it's there.

    This one is well reviewed.

    This wallet style one has good reviews too.

    Then there's the Spigen wallet case.

    Just remember a flip style case is going to make this phone massive. I had a couple for my Lumia 1520 and only used them on occasion when I went out to avoid carrying a wallet.

    One easy method to install the screen protector perfectly aligned is the Hinge method.

    You will need, 2 rubber band, tape, cleaning cloth, you can do this where it is dust free.

    1. align the screen protector to the phone (do not peel off anything)
    2. wrap the rubber band on top of the phone and on the bottom (this holds the screen protector in place when you try to align)
    3. move the screen protector around until you feel like it's perfectly aligned
    4. tape on one side, which creates the hinge. (Once taped, remove the rubber band)
    5. On the other side, use one tape (acts like a door knob)
    6. Get a cleaning cloth, wipe screen clean, roll up a tape to remove any dust
    7. Peel the side that has adhesive, and apply the screen protector.

    There you have it a perfectly aligned screen protector on your device. I used this method using Zagg glass and it worked for me perfectly. Perfectly aligned, and no dust.

    You can also search on youtube about the hinge method.

    The glass is very clear. I only notice it when the phone is off.

    As i had no protection on it yesterday afternoon I could see how much i liked the feel of the glass over the stock glass. I would not have thought that possible. It could be that the stock glass where a screen protector was just removed feels different due to the glue or something. Hard to say. After an hour or so i didn't notice the feel of missing the glass anymore. The big thing to take away was that the feel of the glass is at least as good as the stock screen.

    And for me i think it is more finger print resistant then stock.

    I would say it cracked very easily but zagg replaced it for free.

    Tip: you must present the bad one to get a replacement. A lady in front of me had to repurchase as her little one had pulled it off and lost it. They send the old one back to the company to fulfill replacement program.

    A zagg kiosk? I'm just wondering if mine ever breaks if I'll be able to take it back to best buy to get it replaced.
