    Absolutely. This is my third phone that I've bought Zagg Glass for (iPhone 5S, Galaxy S5, and now iPhone 6) and it is the best screen protector on the market by leaps and bounds. It costs a tad more than the competition, but you get what you pay for.

    Yes. There is no substitute for glass. Nothing feels as natural to the touch as tempered glass.

    what about breakage? any of your zagg glass protectors break? ...and do you add case or no case?

    I've been a fan of Zagg invisible shields for years, use full body, no case (but, I didn't have a 4 or 4s), but, tried a 9H olephobic tempered glass screen protector on my iPhone 5 (it was on sale, or groupon or something for like $9), I love it, no scratches, cleans easier than my HD invisible shield, but, scared it'll crack if dropped, so using a thin case most of the time (after seeing a friend of a friend's glass protector cracked). I'll be getting iPhone 6 soon and don't want to go back to non-glass screen protector.

    I really want one too, but going to wait the 2-4 weeks until the release one that goes edge to edge. I know I won't be happy with the gap in size.

    None of mine have ever broken, but I've also never dropped them. My first iPhone 6 protector had a hairline crack in it, so I exchanged it, but that was likely from the package getting stepped on or mishandled. If they do break, though, you have a lifetime warranty and Zagg will replace them free of charge, you just pay a few dollars for shipping. That being said, you want it to break in the event of a fall. Why? Because if the screen protector shatters, it's far more likely that it saved your actual screen by absorbing the impact.

    I do use a case for it, the slimmest one I've ever seen, which happens to be Apple's leather case (in Midnight Blue). I also ordered one of Apple's silicone cases (also in blue) for when I go out. The leather looks beautiful and feels exquisite, so I will use that whenever I'm at home, but since I can't scrub it down with an alcohol swab (I'm a huge germophobe) after an outing, I need the silicone version to take out with me. Speaking solely in terms of screen protection, though, I'd feel absolutely comfortable using it without a case. I think the Zagg Glass will do its job well and I don't feel like I need the raised edges of a case to further protect it. So why do I use a case? Because I'm very anal about my phone and I would die if it got scratched, so I need the leather case and Apple Care (just in case it somehow gets scratched I can pay $79 and get a new one) for my peace of mind.

    P.S. Welcome to iMore!

    Yeah, I think I might wait for this too, because, I probably will do without a case and would prefer the screen be completely covered.

    Nice to know, and, since I have glass protector on my 5, it will be hard to go back to something else. I think I will wait and see if they get one that is not case friendly as, while it would really bug me to get any kind of scratch on the glass, the back isn't a big deal. However, I'm used to having zagg invisible shield on the back, which adds grip, so, I wish they would offer the glass w/invisible shield (the thinnest) for the back, but, we shall see. I may use a very thin case if it feels like it might be easier to drop than the 5. I hope to get a 64GB iPhone 6 (4.7") sometime this month (they are pretty scarce right now).

    Did they say they would release an edge to edge one?

    I prefer the glass for sure, but if you drop your phone a lot (like my daughter), the HDX is probably better bc it won't crack like the glass protector.

    I'm starting to see small air bubbles around the edge of my Zagg glass. Good thing the face is white or it would look horrible.

    Neither. I never used a screen protector on my 3gs, 4, 5, 5s, or 6 and have never had any scratches or damage to the screen. As long as you are not putting it in a pocket with keys or change, you are fine.

    Yes, on Amazon they said the released before the actual measurements and need a few weeks to get it custom to fit exactly. I think it's worth the wait.

    nice to hear!

    actually, no, and in looking over their sight more, they have only 1 for each device, not "case friendly" and another "full screen" size.

    this scares me, is this the 6 or 6 plus? I read that the 6 plus is slightly curved at the edges and one brand claims to have glass that fits w/curve perfectly (can't remember the name).

    that won't work, goes in pocket with whatever else is in there, I would likely scratch it in first week and it would irritate the f out of me.

    Amazon? ok, if you say so.

    So, after reading more responses, I was about to order it, then decided to wait, then about to order it, then wait, then order, then wait, order, wait, order, wait ahhhh!

    I actually put it in the cart on their website, (to see if it had free shipping), then took it out. Later I got an email for 10% off. Hard to pass up. And if it bubbles, won't that be covered under lifetime warranty (wouldn't they replace with one that fits properly)?

    So, I'm still undecided.

    TechArmor Glass btw: (Not Zagg) My oops: Additional Note: Since we did not have pre-release specifications, we have a U-shaped cutout at the top (for speaker and camera) to ensure your iPhone 6/6 Plus has the protection it deserves at time of launch. Now that we have the physical phone, we have changed the U-shaped cutout to be more precise but it will take a few weeks before this version is shipping.

    Unless the HDX actually covers the whole screen to the edges of your case, neither. The glass doesn't cover the entire screen, it doesn't even cover the entire active area and I am returning it unused. I find it unacceptable that they put these out without having them designed properly.

    It's the 6. First time I've ever been disappointed with a Zagg SP. I'm gonna wait and see if they make one with more coverage. If so, I replace it. It also causes problems when I attempt to swipe left or right as it stops at the edge of the active screen.

    hmmm, waiting, not ordering the Zagg, here and on Amazon reviews, bubbles on edges and not covering edges of screen properly. It's too bad, zagg's always been good in past.

    Some people don't use screen protector or case, swear by it, but, I'm afraid I'll scratch that screen, then it'll bug me every time I use it.


    • I found the one that claims to fit the curved edges properly...anyone have this one? It gets better reviews on Amz.
