    Has anyone had any luck in finding a glass screen protector that does not leave the dreaded halo effect on the sides of the screen for the 6s? I've tried Zagg, Jettech, Intelliglass, Otterbox, and Spigen. I've looked at standard and full coverage options. Installation was done correctly. Any assistance with a brand or your findings will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Probably doesn't help, but I'm using a tempered glass protector from Verizon. Actually, they put it on when I purchased the phone. Not sure if a I really like it - they put it on a bit crooked too. I'm considering not using one at all, but I'm curious to know as well what others are using.

    I use one of these coollreal edge-to-edge on my 6S+:

    I really like them. They make the home button a bit recessed, but I don't really mind. Can't hardly tell they're on the phone. As long as you get all the dust they adhere just fine and I've had no problem with rainbow, peeling off, etc.

    What is the "halo effect"?

    They suck. They crack easily as a result of even minor impacts. I had one put on my phone when I bought it last week and it was cracked in no time. I actually thought I broke my phone, but it was just the screen protector. I prefer my Otterbox Defender.

    What do you mean by halo effect? The fact that they're not edge to edge? If so, there are edge to edge ones out now. I know tech armor makes one.

    I think the "halo" is the rainbow along the side of the screen of those that don't even cover the entire screen, like the ones that they sell at the Verizon stores.

    I have one from spigen that is working without a halo. But what I don't like is for whatever reason the screen protectors are being made to small, where it seems like if you don't put it on perfect, it'll fit one side of the screen, but the other side would hang out just a hair.

    The halo effect is when the sides of a glass screen protector do not adhere properly. Like in the pic...

    This is my first time not using a glass screen protector and I'm not having any problems. I was a little nervous at first but it's all good now.

    Weird. Is that an edge to edge one or one of the regular ones that leave a gap?

    I tried to like glass but it sticks out like a sore thumb since it doesn't go to the edge and it's thick. Ended up with the Zagg HDX which is great, also the Media Devil from Amazon are really good. Both "disappear" on the screen more than glass and the HDX is probably best as far as "smooth" goes but it's hard to tell.

    I've had two 6 devices and now I have a 6s. My wife has a 6. Both my parents have a 6 and a 6 plus as well as my younger brother. I've bought them all tempered glass protectors and I've never seen that happen. I've gotten all mine from eBay if that helps.

    I've got a Nillkin cp +, it's a edge to edge glass and it's really great. I use it with a slim tpu case and it looks awesome. If you go naked I don't recommend it, it build up the display a lot and doesn't feel so great in your hand. Bur as i said, if you use a good case it's great.

    I don't know. It's just the first pic I found online that showed the halo effect. I had 3 Zaggs that had the same issue. They were all case-friendly.

    Ok. I didn't have that problem on my 6, but I did on my 6s+. I don't think it matters where you buy them from. Thanks though!

    I have had 3 Zagg Glass protectors on my iPhone 6 recently and they have all done this, it was either on the top bottom or sides, had them installed perfectly and I am ocd at Best Buy and Verizon.. Finally just bought a 10$ Tzumi Glass Screen Protector from Walmart and it is perfect no halo, no bubbles on edges! Although I keep looking at the replacement zagg glass sitting in my room that I paid $35 for and its killing me

    One thing I found is the halo or "white" on the edges is much more noticeable on the space gray, I apply them to my white Ip6 and you dont see it as much

    I agree. Funny thing is, I emailed Zagg and asked if regular glass protectors will be made for the 6s and 6s plus. I didn't get an answer, but they sent a new SP...the exact same one I had issues with. Of course, it was crappy too. I took it off and it's sitting in the box.

    Not to be an advertisement, but check out Zagg Glass Luxe (http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-7293438...pple-iphone-6s). I got it for my 6S and it's perfect. Edge to edge protection and seems to adhere better. I turned my 3D sensitivity to the highest setting, but no issues with it. Works right through the glass. Highly recommend. The black looks good on my space gray iPhone. It has this unique look.

    I have had no luck with the glass protectors! First one my cat knocked the phone off the end table onto a carpeted floor and it cracked. Second one cracked after two days with no drops. Had a Zagg hdx put on yesterday. I much prefer the glass but I'm tired of replacing them.

    I have to agree. I'm using a ZAGG Glass SP now on my 6s+, and it's the same way...and basically every one I've used previously on my "6" did too. On my 5 & 5s, because of the flat screen, it wasn't an issue. I'm thinking about trying an HDX SP next to see how it looks.
