Before I begin, I should mention that I have a bit of OCD.
Long review if you''re truly interested... The short version is: I wouldn''t buy any other screen protector. Read the following for details.
I used to buy those expensive ZAGG screen protectors at Best Buy and have them install them for me thinking they have specialized equipment and would align it perfectly and make sure there is absolutely no dirt or air bubbles. That was hardly the case, and when it came down to glass screen protectors, they always broke because they didn''t align them perfectly to the curved edges that came with the release of the iPhone 6. I have yet to find a screen protector that wraps perfectly around the edges.
After a while, I began buying and using Tech Armor screen protectors, which I bought here online. The only problem was that I had to become a pro at installing these things, and even then, I always messed one or two up. This meant the only real benefit in 3x packaging was that I was bound to get it right one of those times. Eventually, I stopped using screen protectors altogether.
Now, I''m a teacher, and we use technology in the classroom often. We use so many apps that allow us to effectively communicate with our students, and I also teach college courses which means I get tons of e-mails and messages throughout the day. Needless to say, at some point, I began to take privacy measures to avoid students looking at other students'' information and so on. I bought these screen protectors with extensive experience in screen protector installing. The easiest phone to install a screen protector on was the iPhone 4 and 5. Afterward, they got pretty complex. So, this screen protector comes with a guide that snaps onto your phone after you''re done cleaning it with the wet/dry wipes (I also used a glass cleaning cloth and the stickers to remove any remaining dirt). Afterward, the installation was pretty straightforward. You just place the top first and let the protector fall slowly toward the bottom. Afterward, I used the glass cloth I had to push out any air bubbles and it was ready. I was amazed by the alignment. The only issue I had was that it did not reach all the way to cover the entire edge. Before you think this is a major flaw, you should understand that this can''t be noted if you are looking at your phone directly. It becomes evident until you aim the phone''s screen toward one of your shoulders, and even then, it is so minimal that it shouldn''t be a big deal. As I stated earlier, this is totally understandable given the design of the curved screens that came after the iPhone 5. Another thing worth noting is that, before buying it, I was wondering how this would apply if I was using the phone sideways to watch a movie. Since the screen is long, I imagined parts of it would be blackened by the privacy feature. This was not the case at all, meaning you have no privacy if you are looking at the phone from the side when watching a video. The privacy is only there from the sides when the phone is standing upright. Again, not a design flaw with the screen protector. The brightness is reduced, as is expected with privacy screen protectors, but the feel of the protector is so nice that it doesn''t hinder the view of it at all. The "flaws" are really flaws of modern phone designs, and the screen protector does exactly what you want it to do for a very reasonable price, which is why I gave this screen protector five stars. I did not include any photos as I only take the photos with the phone I used it on.
