It seems like just yesterday we were reviewing the ZAGG HDX and original backing for the iPhone 6. Really, it was last week but who is counting the days as we certainly aren’t.Again, these products are brought to us by ZAGG franchise owner Bradley Spence in Masonville Mall. Make sure to check them out in London, Ontario if you are nearby. Make sure to check out below for our thoughts and experience with the ZAGG Glass for iPhone 6 Plus.
Like most of the modern ZAGG packaging the Glass lineup of products the look is sleek and eye catching. With most of the packaging being reflective or shiny the packaging almost makes you not want to open it up and protect your device, almost. Once we get the packaging out of the way and the insides on the table we are presented with a few items in a plastic container. Upon opening the plastic we find a lint cloth, a wet wipe, the glass front protection and a reminder to register the product on ZAGG’s website for the lifetime warranty.
The first thing you should do when you get any ZAGG screen protector is wash your hands. This is so understated and yet one of the more important pro tips to know when purchasing. After this is done we took Windex to the front of our device to clear it of any debris/smudges. After this was done we used the wet wipe to give the front screen a once over before applying the glass.
The Glass is sandwiched between two film pieces. The one you want to take off first is the one with the 1’s cascading down one of the tabs. This will be the adhesive part. Make sure to not touch the adhesive side with your hands. That is what the tabs on the top and bottom of the Glass are there for. Once the adhesive part is exposed, we positioned the glass over the iPhone 6 Plus’s screen keeping an eye at the top where the speaker is for positioning. Once lined up where we wanted it there we made sure the home button had equal amounts of space on either side so we would not get one side further off center than the other. Once lined correctly, we gently placed the screen protector on the iPhone Plus’s Screen and then gently pushed in the middle of the glass. To be honest we didn’t believe it would work as well as advertised in the video but again we were proven wrong. With minimal effort we managed to have only two large bubbles which were promptly worked out and we did so by using a credit card covered in the lint cloth. Once lightly worked out we removed the last film layer and we must say it is one of the better applications we have done.
The Original backing was easier than the iPhone 6 to apply as the film sandwiching the protector did not separate.
Overall we feel that the Glass is the prefered option when looking for a screen protector that is tough and is barely there, giving you the clarity you want and need. If you hit up Bradley at the Zagg Masonville location the Glass will cost you $50 and the original is $20. We can’t say this enough but spending between $50 and $70 will make sure your device can last a drop or three instead of leaving it to the supposed shatter proof screen. Very few hiccups in the application process leads us to give it such a prestigious score as you will see below. Make sure to check out the gallery and the video below and leave us a comment with your experience if you have used the Glass or Original protectors. Until the next review, Happy Hacking!
