    Thank you for the review. I've found that anti-glare, anti-fingerprint screen protectors tend to look a bit cloudy/milky and reduce visual clarity. Have you found this? I thought I saw this in one of your pictures. Thanks!

    I would also be concerned about the distortion on such a small screen. I do wonder how it actually performed out in the sun. Did it really help?

    No distortion or cloudy/milky, but as I mentioned in review - the screen will get grainy. This is my wife's phone, she has been using it all day yesterday after I installed this screen protector and she said after a short while she forgot it was even on. And it did help to cut sun light glare. I'm not keeping it for too long since I also got Anker's tempered glass one and have to test it next week. So, I will end up going through a lot of SPs until will settle down on the one I like the best. Most likely it will be tempered glass one.

    Btw, the last picture above didn't come up as good, it's hard to take shots with a lit up screen.

    I'm interested in reading the tempered glass review. I haven't used one before and I wonder if there are advantages that justify the extra cost?

    Thanks for the review, looking forward to the tempered glass.

    One question on this one, did it interfere with the fingerprint sensor at all?

    Good question, but considering a generous cut out around home button it shouldn't be a problem. Gotta ask my wife is she enabled fingerprint sensor lol!!!

    Yes, tempered glass review is coming next week. Stay tuned.

    Just as a heads up, I went ahead last night installing Anker's tempered glass. Took a bunch of pics; just need to format everything, and will probably write a review tonight :)

    One word - AWESOME!!!!!! Crystal clear, touch glass performance, thin and tough, and works perfectly with UAG case. The problem is I don't want to take it off if I'm going to receive other tempered glass samples lol!!!

    Stay tuned for review.

    Hello,

Plus with matte screen guard accepting thinner, you ability anticipate why would you even charge a acceptable PET blur awning protector.
