The Tech21 Impact Shield with Self Heal for iPhone 6+ is an excellent screen protector which should offer enhanced impact protection for your iPhone’s screen without diminishing its screen feel or clarity. It is made of various layers of advanced polymers which promise to protect your screen by absorbing and dissipating impact forces as well as heal minor scratches to the surface of the screen protector. Overall, it feels great and looks great on your iPhone. Installation is pretty easy, and is helped by the installer included in the package.
1. Easy install; installer helps in lining up the Impact Shield properly for a straight and accurate install experience.
2. Feel is very, very similar to glass. I had an Impact Shield for my iPhone 5, and while I liked it, it was just a tiny bit sticky feeling sometimes. Tech21 seems to have fixed this problem, as the Impact Shield with Self Heal for the 6 Plus feels just great, with no stickiness or lack of slipperiness.
3. Optical clarity is excellent and oleophobic coating is quite good.
1. Cut out around the home button is a little too wide, in my opinion.
Conclusion: The Tech21 Impact Shield with Self Heal is an excellent screen protector; many thanks to the kind folks at Tech21 for sending it out to me. How well it truly protects your phone screen from a drop, I don’t know, as that is not something that I test. However, it does provide good scratch protection and it looks great and feels great on your iPhone 6 Plus. It is available directly from Tech21 for $34.99 as well as from various other retailers:
