    Never tried a glass protector but I'm using a Bodyguardz Privacy on a 5S that is great and just ordered a Spiegen Steinheil Protector for a 6 Plus because it covers edge to edge and 2 for $19.99.
    Wait..... So steinheil is a 'curved' glass screen?

    Negative. I have the Spigen GLAS screen protector for the 6+ and for my wife's 6- and they are NOT curved.

    I've noticed the Glass protectors range from about .15 to .3 mm in thickness. I'm sure the thin ones are sexy, but thicker has to be better, presuming all the different manufacturers' products are of the same quality/strength/impact resistant, etc. no?

    I saw a YouTube video comparing three or four of the top brands and the 3 mm one was the only one that didn't get a focal shatter spot when the guy hit the glass with a car key, with not so much force.

    Oh. Ok. But how does it cover from edge to edge without having curvature to match that of the phone screen?

    The Steinheil is a plastic film.

    I never used a glass screen protector before. I used 'best skins ever' front/back skins on all my iPhone's and iPads. I've never had a problem. I may try a glass protector for my plus once it comes in but I have both gloss and matte best skins ever waiting to go on already.

    I've been rocking the Spigen glas and loving it. It's clear and smooth. The edges taper off but do not go edge to edge.

    How is the glass with fingerprints? One thing I hate about the space grey model is the amount of prints I see.

    The Zagg glass protectors have a "smudge proof nano coating" which are great on cutting down fingerprints while also being smooth to the touch.

    I am using the Cygnett Opticshield 9H glass on my iPhone 6 plus and I love it. It was so easy to apply and has an oleo-phobic finish so fingerprints are almost a thing of the past!

    I can thoroughly recommend the Cygnett product!

    I'm looking on Amazon but can't find that product. Only cases. I find a "us.cygnett.com" site, but being in Hawaii the shipping would probably kill me. Is that company located outside United States?

    What are fingerprints???



    Really, the only time I see smudges is if I do something silly like eat fries then touch the screen. Or put on lotion and touch the screen. Even in that case, ut just wipes off with no trace.

    Agree. Glass protectors are so easy to clean. A quick wipe will usually take care of smudges (unless your kid gets ahold of it)

    Most glass screen protectors are treated with a oleophobic coating that helps to repel oil buildup from fingers. My ZAGG Glass does a great job of this. I find myself wiping my screen once or maybe twice a day oppose to once every hour like I had to when I used plastic screen protectors.

    Thanks everyone. I've been going about things all wrong. I rather use no protector but the smudges still drive me insane (OCD). The glass protector def sounds like it'll help. So I'll get one this time.

    The smudges on mine drive me crazy too (i6 space grey owner) and I end up wiping the screen a lot. I need a glass screen protector. I saw my friend's and it feels like the iPhone screen itself. Bad thing is she had some lint under there so it shows and I know that would bug me. I'm not awesome at installing screen protectors either so I've been putting off getting a glass once since they're pricey and I don't want to mess up the installation.
