    I had used some protectors by Skinomi and they kept collected dust and lint along the edge of the protector itself, and not just between the edge of the case and protector. Took it off and man the screen is so much nicer without the protector. I have AC+ and so a new screen is $29 if I need to use it, which I could have paid for already with all the dang money I’ve spent on protectors!

    You will have to break it. Apple care+ doesn’t cover cosmetic damage like scratching. It’s for physical damage.

    That’s true, and I realize that. The micro scratches in the okeophobic coating don’t bother me. It’s the major damage that I need protection against.

    Yep!
    If you check the ratings on the Apple website it has always been bad.
    Well, we have four. All of which went on perfectly and protect perfectly. Do I think they were over priced for a piece of glass? Yes. But as for functionality, no complaints whatsoever.

    I do plan on getting one for my X in the near future. Simply for it’s perfect installation.

    I am using the Spigen glass, i change phones too often not too. Has a tiny rainbow between the notches if you tilt the phone towards you, only see it with white background, i seem to have a perfect fit so maybe could of been 1mm taller there.

    What would you do? The edges are like that because I had to lift it to get dust underneath the protector using scotch tape. It doesn’t bother me as much as a dust underneath the screen, there is no specks or dusts under the screen...

    It’s not too noticeable, and I’d be fine with it.

    I always use on and have had the Apple store install the last few. They do a great job. Also the screens on the X's are more expensive to replace.
    I have mine installed too!

    I bought the iCarez for iPhone X from amazon. Edge to Edge, case friendly, and it covers the notch. I LOVE these. 7.99 for 2 of them as well.
    Exactly what I did as well. Read the reviews and the 2.5D seemed to be the best option as it works well with most cases. I usually don’t use screen protectors at all but with the price being so cheap I figured I’d give them a try and even though the installation did not go smoothly the end result is great after it settled in.

    I got a 5D glass screen protector and it's great for peace of mind. However, dust got under the notch area, including the camera lens part and it looks kinda unsightly when you look a little closer.Glass screen protector or not???-img_20171218_084210.jpg

    Here’s a video I made for my YouTube channel “TECH-FIGHTER” that shows how badly I did on my install but still came away with good results.

    Word on the street is Apple has pulled the glass Belkin screen protectors from stores due to them breaking too often. Belkin is suppose to re-engineer them and possibly be back in store in February. After I heard this, they are no longer even offered on the Apple site

    I've seen 6' drops shatter screens and 6' drops do no damage, with and without screen protectors, iPhone, Android, Windows and Blackberry. Personally I'd spend the money for a little piece of mind.

    I still prefer Spigen. It’s 1/10 of the cost at $4 per screen protector and quality is excellent.

    Still rocking the Spigen glass here, too, and it's been great!

    I've dropped my 7+ from the top of a 6 foot ladder and no damage (case and screen protector). My wife knocked her 7+ off the top of her car and only a small scratch on the back (screen protector and no case). My son dropped his 6s+ from his waist and shattered the screen (case and screen protector).

    Wow, I wish I could be that lucky. I’ve never dropped my phone from that high, but I have had two separate phones get bumped off tables and the screen broke both times.
