The ultra responsive pixel precision this protector provides ensures you won't be doubling up on your presses, either. Included with this full-body protector is an installation solution, squeegee, lint-free cloth and easy instructions for those who may need them.

  • The Spigen HD feels so good it feels and looks like I don't even have a protector on. Love it! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Couldn't agree more. I highly recommend it.
  • I have the Skinomi glass protector. It doesn't quite cover the entire screen, but otherwise it is pretty good for what I paid for it. I may have to get the IQ Shield for the back glass, since my S6 wants to soar across any smooth surface. I laid it on top of a fleece jacket in my car seat, turned into a parking lot, and my S6 flew into the passenger door. Lol
  • So has Zagg really been passed by? I haven't bought a screen protector in ages, I don't use them, so I haven't been paying attention. However, my wife needs one for her new S6 and in the past she had always just gone with a Zagg, partially because there is a kiosk in the mall and they would install it and guarantee it.
  • Zagg has an agreement with bestbuy so you can't buy them directly from amazon or other retailers yet. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hmm, this link would say otherwise:
  • Show me the galaxy s6 zagg shipped and sold by Amazon... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Actually, i found it here
  • I love ZAGG. Luckily I live down the street from their headquarters so it's easy for me to buy new ones or get a free warranty replacement.
  • I have the Zagg HDX full body one T-Mobile sold. Are these really better, especially considering Zagg's warranty? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Do people really care about screen protection? I have seen some people go as far as to leave the plastic on the front of the device that comes with the phone in the box. I have dozens of devices here in the office as well as personal ones and the screens just need to be cleaned every once in a while. They don't break or scratch much that you would notice anything.
  • Agreed but it's an industry that has the consumer believing that they need it. Screen protectors are like undercoating for cars. Not needed. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This. Stopped applying screen protectors a few years ago. I'm cautious but not overly gentle with my phones and can't remember the last time I had a scratch. Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's actually not entirely the case. Tempered glass protects the display from shattering every time. Im not using anything right now personally but there's no doubting how protective it is Posted via the Note 4 or Tab S 10.5
  • The am film screen protector is cut wrong, it goes over on both sides of my screen Posted via the Android Central App
  • I got the tech armor ballistic glass on amazon, pure garbage, because it leaves a white halo around the edge. Next I tried Zagg Glass ($22 at at&t), and it's much better but a pain to line up, which the guy at the store didn't. So, I got my Ringke Fusion (clear) case that came with a film screen protector for the front and a matte protector for the back....PERFECT!! I'll be waiting until all the glass ones get revised.
  • You can buy a Chinese tempered glass screen protector from Amazon for a fraction of the cost of those name brands, and it will do the same job. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I need to see these on the device so I'll be waiting and praying for no scratches.
  • Why does it needs a screen protector when it's already built with corning gorilla glass 4? Whats the point? You only going to have the phone for a minimum of 2-3 years and then its a hand me down or dump it off or lay in that junk drawer of it. Leave that beautiful screen alone and just use it as it is. It's fine. Wear and tear is part of life unless you really endlessly trying to scratch the living hell out of that screen. A light slim case i understand and a fullly double layer case because you have toddlers who cant wait to get an opportunity to grab that phone and slamming it or throwing it. But really?

  • I am a student and definitely cannot afford to "dump if off" - I have to sell my used devices if I want to buy new ones. Screen protector is pretty much used as a proof of non-scratched screen, and allows me to sell the phone for up to 50 bucks more than without screen protector. In addition, tempered glass does not lower the quality of the screen in any noticeable way. I just bought Fosmon Touch Tempered Glass for my new S6, we'll see how well it performs!
  • Ok, DO NOT BUY Fosmon Touch Tempered Glass. It is a complete junk. I could accept the fact that it is narrower than the actual screen (after all, the S6 screen is a bit curved at the edges), but the fact that it leaves 3mm thick bubble around the circumference of the display is unacceptable.
  • Gorilla Glass is "scratch resistant" not scratch proof.
    Those of us who spend a lot of time in dusty environments know a protector is a necessary evil.
    I'm still looking for a full coverage screen protector. For the back though dBrand is my pick it may not be clear but it covers the entire glass right up to the aluminum frame. The perfect fit makes it easy to install and you can choose your desired colour.
    Wish they would make screen protectors too.
  • I've been using the Get-Z all glass screen protector for two months now. It's cut nicely so my cover doesn't interfere with it. The edges don't have any "halo" and it feels good. Probably not a well known brand but I've been happy with it. It was also nice to get a quality glass screen protector without having to pay forty large. Dan I work at a mine, they are an absolute necessity. Just my $.02
