I'm also interested in this too, being someone who carries their phone without a case but with a screen protector. It seems like every tempered glass screen protector is very prone to chips on the edges, so it would be nice if this flexible glass would somehow be more resistant to chips.

Its so smooth and its really nice to touch, slightly expensive but we will see how it fairs against the test of time. I used an invisisheild before I don't think I'll be using those again, its a floppy sticky bit of plastic.

My only small gripe with this is there a few tiny tiny air bubbles I can't seem to get out with the squeegy and I can't see any dust particles in there. Il try and add a photo later

Just to update about my post, the small imperfections have worked them selves out and now it looks perfect. I'm not exactly sure when it happened but I'm really really pleased with this. Iv also got a black official bumper case and although these items weren't cheap they are worth it and defiantly make the phone have a premium feel.

It's been about a month with this screen protector and I don't liek it. The oleophobic coating has worn off mostly and compared to my naked iPhone 5, it's pretty hard to wipe the screen clean of fingerprints.

I also see scratches on my screen. Granted that might be from Coachella weekend where there were dust storms, but to be honest my iPhone is in far better shape on comparison and its what I used more for photos during Coachella.

Very disappointed.

For the record I've used the Spigen protector for about 2 months and it was flawless. Great oleophobic coating and great scratch protection.

weird... i'm actually the exact opposite... I initially wasn't sold on the glass not going all the way to the edges but after learning its for cases to fit properly, i let it slide... i don't use a case at all, just this glass protector and my Cruzerlite antibacterial blue vinyl skin... LOVE this setup... not a single scratch on my protector and my phone is essentially flawless still... my only gripe is the fingerprints and the glass in general is a tad harder to keep clean... but aside from that, i love it...

Yeah the fingerprints definitely collect faster than raw glass on this one. The Oleophobic coating wears off pretty fast

I actually removed this one from my phone and installed a MIMEUSA glass (which is lifting on its own already)... The TruGlass wasn't bad or anything and in fact i installed the exact glass from my phone, onto my sisters Nexus 5 and it went on just fine...

I did this very carefully btw haha...
