It wasn’t long after the release of the iPhone 6 that we all saw what a problem the curved edges would be for screen protectors. Because of the slope, the typically flat screen protectors had to abandon coverage just before the iPhone 6’s edges, which led to unsightly lines and annoying ridges when tapping and swiping on the phone.
None of this is a problem with the Moshi iVisor Glass iPhone 6 screen protector, as it reaches to the edge to provide full protection, even over the curves. And as you’ve come to expect with Moshi’s iVisor products, the iVisor Glass for iPhone 6 goes on simply and provides a bubble free installation.
So, why the suction cup?
First, let’s talk about getting the iVisor Glass on your phone. You’ll use the microfiber cloth to clean away any fingerprints and dust (Moshi advises you to not use cleaning solvents), then you’ll peel away the iVisor’s backside film. At this point, you’ll see the adhesives to hold the iVisor in place are around the very edges. This means the glass doesn’t adhere to the screen itself, which is why you don’t get bubbles.
Placing the iVisor Glass is pretty simple, as the edge to edge coverage means you can start at the edges, not some random point on the screen. If you don’t get good alignment, you can use the suction cup to raise it from the iPhone, then try again. My first installation was pretty good, but I raised it a couple times to check the suction cup process, and it worked without fault.
Although the iVisor Glass does reach to the edge of the iPhone 6’s screen, you can still feel its edges when holding the phone. Although not uncomfortable, it is unfamiliar, but you can easily mask this with the use of a full case, which I still recommend. Not all cases will be compatible, as it depends upon how they fit around the naked iPhone 6 screen. As you can see if the photo below, however, Moshi’s iGlaze Armour was most accommodating, as one would expect.
When under the iVisor Glass, your iPhone 6’s screen will be a little bit dimmer. The touch responsiveness is just fine, however, and you get the benefit of very powerful screen protection. The iVisor can withstand very strong scratches, and if you drop your phone from high enough to crack the screen, you can rest assured the crack will be to the iVisor Glass, not your iPhone’s glass.
Moshi’s iVisor Glass screen protector is available in black and white for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you have either of these devices but don’t yet have a screen protector—or just aren’t happy with the one you do have—there are helpful links below. I recommend you follow them.
