[TechInsider] The Apple store will now perfectly install a new screen protector on your iPhone - Page 13

post #121 of 139

I once dropped my phone and instead of the screen breaking the extremely thick screen protector broke. I was very happy about that and will continue to use them.

The girlfriend.

Lol. I was too until about 3 broke after just normal fall. Removed them and many drops after phone is fine.

This happens, there's kinda no way to deny it.

Yeah, sand can scratch your screen, not some change or keys.

Hardness vs toughness, learn the difference.

You guys are misinformed as the guy who asked that "if diamond is the hardest, why does it break when smashed by a hammer?" Or you probably think that the diamond won't shatter because its the hardest mineral on earth.

Sorry bro,but it will leave scratch.

Depending on pressure and friction....

EDIT: i thought on those little scratches which is seen after screen is off and observed after phone is angled.wink.gif

Please stop trolling/making yourself look like a fool on purpose.
You either skipped physics in your school or can't accept the truth.
Coins and keys will never scratch your phone unless they're made of steel. They will help scratch your phone in your pocket if there is sand in there already. But not on their own.

I'll just chime in here and say that my screen protector was well worth the small investment. 18 months of protection so far, two screen protectors in the pack, I switched to the second at around the 13 month mark. It's not like a regular protector, it gives a very smooth and slippery feel under the finger tip but a slightly matte look. It also applied really well, really easily, with no bubbling. Seems to have applied better than what Belkin offers here with their machine, the employee in the video is still having to smooth out air bubbles. I'd forgotten what it was called, but looking it up, it's the Power Support Anti-Glare film.

Oh I also keep it in an Apple leather case. Yeah yeah, Apple fanboy etc, but it does a good job of protecting it from the odd drop.
No marks at all on my iPhone 6 Plus, it's pristine. Which is a far cry from the rather bashed and worn looking iPhone 5 it replaced, which also had one or two small scratches on the screen.

How about this? Someone asserting that they will scratch demonstrate it on camera (these scratches are easily seen under reflection of bright light). If it scratches, one of you nonbelievers either do a complete replacement of the glass (with included 1-day shipping both ways, paid by you), or buy a same new device outright for the person who demonstrated it.
No excuses are to be made whether it's a scratch of the glass or not. If it can't be wiped clean with cloth and water alone (i.e. the scratch line remains under reflections of light), it's a scratch.

You are entirely discounting the fact that these crystals can get attached/embedded to surfaces of coins and keys, from handling alone.

I find it very strange with people who buys phones for 400 Euro because of the nice design and the awesome screen. And then first put a case around the whole thing so you can't see the design, and then put on a screen protector to make the screen both see and feel horrible.
It's like buying an expensive couch and putting plastic on it to make it last longer.

I just said that in my post. Keys alone wont do anything to a screen. But they will help if there is sand in your pocket.

Some cases look fantastic. I really love mine:


As for the screen protector - you never really touched glass ones? They feel just like glass. Just like the screen.

Ah yes, this is why anecdote is the highest standard of evidence.
