I don't understand the logic of some of you people .

Some say they put a Glass protector on their phones and say it broke when they dropped their phone. And they say that as a criticism !

Isn't the whole point of a Glass protector to protect your screen against falls ? Would you rather have your screen broken ?! That's the whole point of Glass over plastic. The Glass protector breaks into pieces instead of your 300$ screen.

Installed tech armour ballistic today and so far seems really nice. Looks and feels better than the plastic one I had on.

I'm using it with an otterbox commuter and it fits perfectly.

The fingerprint scanner works great too.

Are all tempered glass screen protectors the clear type? Are there any matte/antiglare screen protectors that you guys recommend?

Question NuGlas screen protector.

Hello,
Has anyone tried NuGlas tempered screen protector?
Looks like it has a cutout for the front camera and sensor. Specs are 0.3mm thin, 9h hardness, oliophobic coating.

"it does smudge"

That's an understatement - the Zagg basically sucks fingerprints off of your fingers before you even touch the screen.

When you get tired of cleaning it, do what I did. Remove it and throw it away, and install a Tech Armor ballistic screen. The only way to get a smudge on the TA screen is to rub your nose on it. (About that. I'm not kidding.)

I have to agree that the tech armour is pretty good in the finger smudge department.

I've had mine on about 2 weeks and finally had to clean it last night. I'm a mechanic and I used my phone with greasy fingers.

Yes I love it. Would never go back to a film based protector. The oleophobic coating is great no fingerprints on it. For under 8$ I can not recommend it enough.

I'm assuming you meant that you didn't understand my logic. I had a glass screen protector that broke very easily. Yes, the purpose of the glass is to protect the touchscreen $300 glass, which if effectively did. However, the plastic ones never "broke" for me, and worked quite well. The screen never broke with those either. Just saying.
I'm from Washington DC. I'm not exactly proud of it.
