The Bodyguardz ScreenGuardz Pure with the Crown Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 6 Plus is one of the best iPhone 6 and 6 Plus accessories to hit the market. That isn’t hyperbole but rather, that is a fact. At just under $50 it isn’t cheap but it is awesome. Let’s take a look at why that is the case.
The Problem: The curved screen of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus makes it all but impossible for a screen protector to cover the glass from edge to edge. Unless the screen protector itself had subtle curves to match that of the iPhone screen there is no way for it to not come to a terminal point somewhere before the screen’s edge. As the company explains it:
On curved screen devices such as the iPhone 6, the rounded edges make it impossible for a tempered glass screen protector to provide edge-to-edge protection. The initial answers were to either decrease the coverage of the screen protector, leaving an unsightly gap and exposed, vulnerable edges. Or, to extend the screen protector over the curved portion of the glass causing a “halo,” that would collect dust and debris.
The result is a sharp edge all along the screen protector. It looks something like this…
The Solution: Bodyguardz found a solution- the Bodyguardz ScreenGuardz Pure with the Crown. They kept the screen protector- in this case one of their awesome Pure Tempered Glass screen protectors- the same but added a curved aluminum cap, or crown to use their language, that wraps around the screen protector and matches the curve of the iPhone’s screen. The result is a smooth, seamless protective layer that completely covers the iPhone’s screen. It looks like this…
The Crown is a patent-pending BodyGuardz solution created to protect the curved edges of today’s hottest devices. The Crown is a custom-molded aluminum rim, designed to fit seamlessly around ScreenGuardz Pure and offer an elegant protective solution unlike anything seen before. United with the #1 selling tempered glass screen protector in the USA, ScreenGuardz Pure® + The Crown is the solution for edge-to-edge screen protection for rounded screen devices.
Inside the package you will find:
- A ScreenGuardz Pure tempered glass screen protector (1)
- The Crown anodized aluminum rim(1)
- An Express Align installation tray
- A microfiber cleaning cloth
- An alcohol wipe / cleaner
- Installation instructions
I found the Express Align system to be a great way to flawlessly install the Pure glass screen protector. Once that was done and I was satisfied with the screen protector install I grabbed the Crown, pulled off the adhesive and put it in place.
It installed in seconds and, once in place, gave the phone and screen protector a finished look that would not be possible without this extra bit of metal. I was, and am, impressed by the Bodyguardz ScreenGuardz Pure with the Crown.
The Bodyguardz ScreenGuardz Pure + The Crown is available in both white and black for just under $45. The system was, “was designed for those demand premium protection without the unnecessary bulk” and does just that. I love having excellent screen protection on my iPhone 6 Plus and, thanks to the Bodyguardz ScreenGuardz Pure + The Crown I can enjoy this level of protection without adding an unsightly, not to mention uncomfortable, edge when the protector ends and the screen falls into a curve.
