The iLoome ScreenMate for iPhone 6 Plus is an almost, but not quite, edge to edge screen protector and it is absolutely marvelous. Edge to Edge tempered glass screen protectors are a wonderful idea, but if you like to use a case with your iPhone, you may find them quite difficult to use as the increased thickness they add to the edges of the iPhone makes many cases unworkable. The very thinnest edge to edge tempered glass screen protectors, such as the Cinder at .2 mm, are better in that regard, but there are still many cases they do not fit with. The iLoome ScreenMate (2nd Generation) for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus addresses this issue by leaving a .1mm border around the edges of the screen protector to increase its case friendliness. While it may not fit with every case out there, the iLoome ScreenMate fit with every case I tried it with: Speck CandyShell Grip, Thule Atmos X4 (minus its own integrated screen protector), Thule Atmos X3, UAG Valkyrie, Tech21 Classic Shell Wallet, Magpul Field Case, Spigen Tough Armor and Zoogue Social Pro. Once in a case, the edges of the iLoome ScreenMate become quite difficult to see, giving the illusion that it is an edge to edge screen protector.
1. Very easy, bubble free installation
2. 9H hardness
3. Excellent oleophobic coating
4. .33 mm thick
5. Extremely case friendly
6. Rounded edges around home button and on the edges of the screen protector feel refined and pleasant to the touch.
7. All glass construction—no aluminum or plastic edges.
8. Outstanding optical clarity and screen responsiveness.
None found yet! How this screen protector wears long term is unknown at this point and is potentially an area for concern, but overall, this is a fantastic screen protector…and I’ve tested a lot of them!
The iLoome ScreenMate is an absolutely top-notch screen protector that is easy to install, very case friendly and looks and feels great on your iPhone. In addition, it is very reasonably priced. iLoome has it priced with an MSRP of $39.95, but currently on sale for $24.99. And between now and August 31, you can save an additional 30% off the sale price with the special Tech-Reviewer promo code TECREV30
You can also purchase it from Amazon.com, but the 30% off promo code will not work there:
