    Broken after 18 hrs on phone

    I had my IPhone 7 screen repaired by Apple (Meadowhall) and collected it yesterday at 3.30pm, the chap sold me one of these because of its ability to protect the screen. Basically as it's glass in event of an any knocks the cover will crack not your iPhone screen. He said they can't warranty it because it doesn't cover the full screen of the iPhone 7, sure enough I'm using my phone this morning approx, 18 hrs since having it fitted at a cost of £25 and it's got a huge crack in it from the edge where it doesn't fit the iPhone screen.

    Absolute waste of money! Such a con, Apple should not be recommending or selling these products. Shame on you Apple UK!!!

    not worth the price

    As so many others have stated, this screen doesn't even come close to the edge of the screen, leaving at least a few mm on all sides. Looks terrible and does not feel like it is protecting the screen as it should be.

    That said, my main gripe with this screen protector is the fact that it has been LESS THEN A WEEK with NO DROPS and the glass of the protector is already cracked! literally this phone has been on my desk and in its own pocket in my purse...in my pants pocket a couple of times. Can not understand how it cracked already.

    Pros are: the protector comes with some easy-install equipment, that was indeed easy to use. It also does not affect the 3D touch, so that's good, but pretty standard.

    I expected WAY more for the steep price. Would not recommend this product at all. Come on Belkin (and Apple too) I expect more from you. I wish I would have read these reviews before purchasing from the Apple store (which I trusted). Feeling pretty naive.

    Hairline fractures all through glass

    I bought one of these when I purchased my iPhone 7 two weeks ago, and a few days after it was applied, I started to notice hairline fractures on the glass. Obviously as I'd just bought a new iPhone I was handling it like a baby, so hadn't dropped it or handled it roughly, so I was surprised. I went back to the apple store, who were lovely and replaced it immediately, and now less than a week later the new one has even more cracks in it?!?! It appears the cracks originate on the side of the glass (which also doesn't cover the full screen) and then spread across.

    Good tactile, small gap both sides, cracked already

    Take good care of my 7 plus in a wallet case.
    As everyone else has noted slight gap on each side which produces colours of the spectrum at some angles. I bought the "top" phone and the "best" protector, but the appearance and fit is inferior to my budget HUAWEI.
    You pay top dollar, you're entitled to a professional result.

    Mine also developed an unexplained hairline crack in top right corner after three months - replaced no problems at Apple Store.
    I find my credit card in the wallet is starting to chaff at the screen protector, but only if I hold it a certain way and power off. If that is some plastic does not sure how it would go with keys, coins and biros in your pocket or bag.

    One positive is its glossy smooth, feels brand new when clean and does not effect the keyboard/screen response in any way.

    The WORSE screen protector EVER!!!!

    This was a waste of money. The screen protector cracked less than one month of my purchase. I had it replaced and the second protector cracked in less than two weeks. Please note: my phone never dropped, ever!!!! Do not buy this product. Apple should be ashamed of themselves for promoting it. I wish I could give this a zero rating.

    Lovely Rainbow bars thanks Jony Ive!

    This protector recommended by Apple and applied to my new iPhone7 by then in their store adds magnificent refraction spectrum bars on both sides of the screen - it's really quite magical and I do hope Jony Ive and the design team will consider adding this to the future baseline Apple products.

    Absolutely love it! ;-p

    DO NOT BUY

    I wanted to protect my phone so purchased an overpriced silicon case and an extremely overpriced tempered Belkin glass. I thought it would just be easier to buy together and have Apple install it and have my phone protected. The person in store said this is highly recommended.

    What a waste. I am returning this piece of garbage right away.

    You can clearly see that it does not fit the phone. It is too small. Their story about how it is designed so it fits on every phone is disingenuous and offensive to common sense. The glass does not even cover the part of the screen being used. It literally stops mid way through the screen.

    Meanwhile, I can go into any phone Kiosk and get tempered glass for $10-15 that actually covers the screen properly.

    Apple should be ashamed of themselves. This product is clearly defective. I would not pay $5.00 for it. Heck, I do not even want it on my phone since it does not fit properly.

    I am uber upset that my time has to be wasted going back to return this junk. Apple should apologize to its customers for this disgrace of a product they promote and offer free cases to those who have to waste their time coming back to return it.

    Stay away from this junk. Such a disappointment.

    easily cracked and ill-fitting.

    Doesn't cover entire screen (edges unprotected, even when fitted correctly).

    Cracked within a few days of average use (phone not dropped).

    Does not fit the entire screen!

    Got this fitted at the apple store for £25. After I had left I took out my phone and it as obvious that I would hate it. The screen protector does not cover the entire area of the screen. So you have a line running down either side that refracts the light from the screen and is glaringly obvious. I will be returning to ask for it to be replaced.

    Excellent product. Would recommend

    Had new phone one week only. Had screen protection expertly fitted in Apple Store week later. Excellent service and full explanation of product.

    Happy with this product. Can hardly see line on outer edge. Happy with this product as screen is now better protected.

    Best screen protector around.

    Not sure what the other people reviewing this are seeing, but I'm an avid Apple Fan and have had their products in every aspect for many years. Of all the screen protectors I've bought this has to be the best one. It's tempered glass and it almost invisible to the screen. Fits the screen perfectly and has no air bubbles on the side like most Screen Protectors. Would definitely recommend.

    WASTE OF MONEY

    I got this screen protector for my for myself and it cracked the first time dropping it from less than 5 feet(The phone landed on it's side, not on the screen). This screen protector was not worth the 42 dollar I paid for it, I am very displeased with this product and I would not recommend that anyone else purchase it.

    It cracks too easily, DO NOT BUY

    The first protector cracked on the second day after i bought it, but i never dropped or impacted the phone in any way. I went back to Apple and the store manager was kind enough to replace one for me for free. But guess what...? The second protector cracked within 4 days, also without any impact. This is awful, worst screen protector I've ever bought.

    Boourns

    If this is what the windows of the space shuttle are made of, I fear for the astronauts. I've been using this screen protector for a little over a month, and today I scratched it while putting my phone in my pocket and the scratch immediately spread out in a spiderweb pattern. Not to mention that it doesn't cover the whole screen of the phone. Inexplicable decision on Apple's part to carry this product.

    Poor Quality - Cracked after three months without dropping phone

    Bought from the Apple store expecting top quality. Two months later, the screen protector is starting to crack on the edges. I have purchased similar products from eBay which have lasted over a year without cracking.

    Cracked & chipped away after 1 month!

    If I could have given this product 0 stars, I would have. The glass screen protector cracked after one month, subsequently chipping away. The good device has not been dropped. Would not recommended.

    Good and Bad

    The screen is crystal clear and covers 99% of the screen, except for a sliver on each side which isn't all that noticeable. I love how it's installed and it's done perfectly thanks to the tool used to install it.

    My biggest complaint was it cracked on me pretty easy. I picked up my pants off the floor one morning, and my belt buckle attached to the pants fell from a standing position to my hand holding my phone, about a 6 inch drop on to my phone, it was enough to put a 1 inch crack and chip into the glass. I was really disappointed that my $50 protector was gone so easily.

    Waste of money

    Purchased this and 2 days later I dropped my iPhone 7, screen protector and screen cracked and it was only dropped from 2 feet.

    BAD BAD BAD DOES NOT COVER SCREEN AND CRACK

    CRACKS EASIELY AND IT DOESNT COVER THE ENTIRE SCREEN. WASTE OF MONEY.

    GREAT BEFORE IT BREAKS!

    Despite the poor reviews, I was initially drawn to this screen protector because of the kit that it is used to apply with. The kit is great because it aligns the screen protector to perfection. Yes, there is some space on the sides, the reason being is so any case that encases a portion of the front of the phone will not interfere with the screen protector. Honestly, it is hardly noticeable, and I don't know anyone who needs to touch that 0.0000000001 nm of the side that is not covered.

    The reason I gave this item 2 stars is 1 for the ease of application and 1 for the screen protector (before it breaks). I have gone through 2 of these babies already. I noticed a chip on the protector the same day that I purchased it, and I had not dropped my phone at all. I went in to get it replaced and the Apple Store specialist was very nice about it and helped me put on a new protector. Fast forward 10 days and a few not-so-severe drops later and I am left with another chipped screen protector that is starting to fracture on the surface of my protector (not deep thought so I can't actually feel the crack but I can definitely see it).

    TLDR; sparknotes version:
    + Easy application
    + Seamless/smooth surface (feels just like the actual iphone glass)
    + Hardly noticeable on the phone
    - Poor durability
    - Cracks easily
    +/- Covered under limited lifetime warranty, but you have to send the broken part in and pay for shipping charges
