Default Spigen slim OR iLoome Screenmate 9H

I'm sure the pros and cons were mentioned somewhere on this forum but couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for as there are hundreds of pages of comments. I'm undecided between Spigen slim & iLoome screenmate 9H for the note 3 and would like some input on which would be the best bet. They both seem equivalent as far as what they offer but would like to know from those who actually have used them. I've looked at Amazon reviews and still couldn't make my mind up. I plan on using one of these with the Otterbox Commuter.

My main concern is that it be truly bubble free so no bubbles form months down the line and no adhesion issues. From Amazon reviews I've seen people mention that after a few months bubbles had formed. If anyone has used these for a few months, do you have any bubbles and what are your thoughts?

I've got the iloome and there are no bubbles. I've never used the other one but can recommend this one. It wasn't too hard to install. You kind of have one shot at it. I found a video on YouTube where the guy places the glass on top first then puts blue tape on one side. So its like a door. Then he lifts the glass up, peels the plastic and drops it straight onto the screen. That's the method I used and it worked out perfectly. Once you do that just start pushing from the middle out to get rid of all the air.

I've had my SPIGEN for about 6 months now with zero issues. I never has bubbles and nor do I have any now. It can withstand some abuse too. I dropped my phone on a gravel driveway, straight on the glass. Didn't move a hair.

Btw, using it in combination with an Otterbox commuter.

Been using iloome glass for 7 month now. No scratch, no crack, no bubbles. Still clear and vibrant as I first got it. Totally recommend their screen protectors.

Do they extend up to the edge of the screen? Because there are some cases that overlaps a TINY portion of the screen like caseology
