Heads up for iPhone 11 Pro owners
Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2019
Overall, this is a high quality product, and I really like it. It's super easy to install and the glass is perfect. But the one thing I really dislike is that for the iPhone 11 Pro, the glass has a black painted "frame" around the edges. This means that you have to sacrifice a good portion of the phone screen edge. Not only does the glass protector sit in from edge by a few millimeters (so that it lays flat properly), but the black frame cuts yet another 2-3mm. This doesn't sound like much, but in total you lose almost 1/8-1/4 of an inch off each edge of the screen. One some websites (like the NY Times in my photo), this cuts off the text on the edges. It has also made using the "back button" on certain apps near impossible (you have to roll your finger along the edge to get the app to realize you're trying to touch that button, since part of it is cut off).
Another thing - the black frame is printed on the surface of the glass, so it sit up off the surface of your screen by about a millimeter. Again, doesn't sound like much. This is hard to explain, but it gives this weird 3D feel to your viewing experience. If you tilt your phone, you can peek "under" the black frame to see all that edge website text you're reading. So on website that are text heavy, sometimes you can't read edge to edge. You have to tilt your phone to peer under the black frame, and then resume reading like normal. You're not looking at a flat surface at any given point - you're looking through a black frame, past it another millimeter, onto the screen. And on games and video, this creates a very strange 3D sensation that I dislike.
I tried to include a photo to explain what I mean. I think this could be solved by getting rid of the black frame completely. It blocks your touch-capabilities and blocks essential text and screen function. Just make it clear glass and this product would be perfect! The protection screen itself is really great quality and the install kit was easy. Just a poor design.
