For nearly a year, we’ve been spotlighting a variety of accessories for the iPhone 6, and subsequently the iPhone 6s. We write these posts to bring you information on what is out there to help you figure out what is best for your needs.

This is an accessory roundup of what we consider to be some of the best screen protectors for your iPhone 6s based on what we’ve been showing you over the past years. If your favorite screen protector isn’t on the list, please let us know what you use in the comments section.

JOTO

JOTO-Screen-Protector-1024x998

This tempered glass screen protector has a 9H hardness to protect against screen cracks and scratches. It is 0.33mm thick and has an Oleophobic coating to resist excessive fingerprints. The base model, which does not cover the rounded edge of the iPhone 6s is clear and costs $10. There is also an edge-to-edge model in black or white, which does cover the entire screen for $13. The iPhone 6s Plus version costs $13, as well.

AmFilm

Not everyone is on board with the tempered glass trend. If you are a traditionalist, or just don’t think tempered class screen covers are worth the money, TechMatte’s AmFilm screen protector is a super low-cost protector. It has four protective layers, acrylic, scratch resistant hard coating, optical laminate, and a silicone adhesive, which makes it easier to remove without leaving behind any residue. It comes with an installation kit, which is a series of rubber bands and special tabs. The package includes three screen protectors for only $6. There is also a version for the iPhone 6s Plus for the same price.

Ballistic Glass

Tech-Armor-Ballistic-Glass-Screen-Protector

Similar to JOTO, this 0.3mm screen protector is made from tempered glass and has a hardness rating of 9H. One thing that makes Tech Armor stand out is that it provides a lifetime warranty on cracks. If your screen protector cracks, they will replace it for free, for life. The base model costs $10. There is an edge-to-edge model with a black or white frame for $15. There is also a version for the iPhone 6s Plus for $11, with the edge-to-edge model costing $15.

JETech

Another tempered glass addition to the market comes from JETech. This one, like its competitors has a 9H hardness rating. It has a fingerprint and halo effect resistant coating and measures just 0.3mm in thickness. This is the least expensive brand on our list at only $7. You can get even deeper discounts by getting a two-pack for $9, or a three-pack for $11.

Smarteer

Easily the most interesting screen protector on our list is this smart version, which adds navigation buttons on your iPhone 6s’ bezel. The navigation buttons, which sit at the bottom of your device, are connected with a thin, invisible wire to a circuit at the top of your screen. So, you can hit the back button, write a tweet, and other actions that you would normally have to reach up to the top button for. It costs $10. There is a version for the iPhone 6s Plus for $11.

    useless. Stopped using screen protectors since iPhone 4 and never had one scratch.

    • h4nd0fg0d

      Preach’n to the choir.

    • zabrawn

      Are you serious? How is a glass protector useless, it “protects”. Lol, people just wanna hate nowadays

      • Martynet

        no hate… I just think it doesn’t look good and it feel much different when you slide finger over the diplay too. I used to be a big fan of Zaag’s products before I realised how much it takes from touching the real screen. And as I said. No scratches ever. I also don’t have any other objects in the same pocket as my phone.

      • Aman kapoor

        even i hate sceen protectors , never used once since the iphone 4s

      • Vince Reedy

        Since the iPhone went with rounded edges with the 6, it really does take away from the phones feel.

      • Bugs Bunnay

        I’m not hating, but i havent been using a screen protector since iphone 4

    • I was totally with you on this until I discovered the tempered glass protectors. Plus the 6s Plus cost me way too much to have to worry I could damage the screen in 2 years.
      The tempered glass ones have a great feel to them and don’t sacrifice any clarity. I used to avoid them because they used to always blur the screen, defeating the point of having an iPhone with Retina Display.
      Nowadays they make real good protectors and at only 0.3mm, I am not adding much bulk and barely know it is there.
      I am actually proud of the fact that not 1 finger has ever touched the screen of my iPhone. Heck even the back has barely had a finger on it either! ha

  • Joey

    all of these protectors are cheap but are rubbish. for high quality and full coverage, look at imos or ice max 3d

  • Andrieux Querido

    ZAGG !!!

  • faisal

    do these glass protectors with the ‘S’ as in not the protection bit but does 3D touch work on it !? i have been using the normal plastic screen protector all this while thinking that the glass would work well.. or have i been wrong all this while !?

    • Briggamortis

      Glass works fine with 3D touch. I have the ZAGG Glass on mine and it works just fine. No additional force required.

  • Gerardo Castro

    It’s funny because joto means faggot in Spanish

    • It is also the name of a region in Pokemon and a type of Japanese sword. So what.

      • Gerardo Castro

        That’s Johto. I just found it funny that a company would be named that. Geez. It’s not like I’m saying its a terrible article because as it so happens I was looking into a screen protector.

  • Jamessmooth

    Zagg glass luxe. Amazing!

  • BrS

    Screen protectors are definitely a necessity. I thought I wouldn’t need one, but in spite of being very careful my screen ended up having tiny scratches on it.
