    Default Glass Screen Protector

    I've recently fitted a glass screen protector to my iPhone 5. I'm not the first but I thought I'd post here to say how much better it is than the plastic films that I've previously used on all of my iPhone models.

    It feels really smooth and there's no initial resistance to polish out with use, as with the plastic films. It is about three times thicker than a plastic film and the kit included a stick on button to go on top of the home button. The home button was useable without the additional stick on one but there are obviously implications for use with the 5S. Someone would have to try the fingerprint reader to see if it is hindered by the additional screen thickness. Obviously the add on sticky button isn't an option for 5S. Probably rescanning the thumb with the glass screen protector in place is an option.

    The kit was £3 from eBay (an auction, not buy it now) and included:
    Alcohol wipe
    Small cloth
    3 alignment stickers
    1 dust picking sticker
    1 black home button sticker
    1 white home button sticker
    And of course the glass screen protector

    It's in place, completely dust free and the phone works with perfect response.

    Suppose the finger print reader bit would have to be made out of sapphire for that's how they get the accuracy out of it on the 5s

    I usually dont bother as the screen on my old Desire only picked up a few small scratches over its 4 year lifespan, but my LG G2 developed a crack and I don't actually know why. When I sent it in for repair they offered me a glass screen protector so I agreed (£2), still waiting on its arrival.

    Should have stuck with HTC....

    Not so, the glass SPs don't cover the FP reader. M 5s works flawlessly with glass SP.

    Well - what a load of bollocks. I was doing some work in my back garden earlier and used my phone when having a rest. The screen has a load of scratches all over it. I wasn't expecting a miracle but I didn't expect scratches this soon.
