Better than older anti-glare protectors
Back when I got my 4S, I tried one of Power Support's anti-glare protectors and was rather put off by how much the matte texture c aused a strange magnification of certain pixels. I've heard one reviewer call it a "screen-door effect". You can get the idea by putting some small droplets of water on your screen (or any pixelated screen, actually). In short, it really detracted from the crispness of the Retina display.
Since then, I've been a die-hard of Power Support's "Crystal" screen protectors as they have given me fewer bubbles. Unfortunately, the Apple Store doesn't sell the Crystal for the iPhone 5; you have to choose between the Belkin Iris or the Power Support HD. I chose the Belkin on a whim.
The Iris comes as a bit of a multi-media experience. The package unfolds to reveal three panels with pouches, holding 1) the screen prep, 2) the protectors, and 3) the bubble-squeegie, with the steps clearly printed on the panels.
Overall, installation was easy. I had very few bubble/dust issues and, I'm please to find that the anti-glare finish is noticeably more Retina-friendly. It's still not as good as a crystal one, but it's better than the older 4/4S ones were. …

Have had this on my phone now since I purchased the Iphone 5 (October). So far, it has held up better than most other films I have had on my previous phones. Definitely superior quality than other screen protectors out there. I would highly recommend this product to other Iphone 5 users. Does not compromise the retina display. …

Best anti-glare i've used
for those who say it creates bubbles, thats solely the user's error and not a fault on the product itself. if theres any dust on the screen the air bubbles aren't going away... remove the dust before u apply the screen protector and it'll look perfect.
Most anti-glares add a grainy look to the screen, but the Iris Anti-Glare Film is by far the best protector that limits the effect. Cut outs are spot on and the extra space next to the earpiece and camera are for the light and proximity sensors. …

I bought this at the apple store today. When the young lady at the new Santa Monica store offered to install it. I was very surpri sed.
She did it and made it look simple. A sign of a true expert.
Came out PERFECT.
Now the shield itself presents a very sharp image of the screen. Much better than my old screen shield.
Now here is the kicker.
The young lade noticed that the second shield in the package was damaged (there was a black spot on the edge in the shield. It was 1mm in size. They promptly got a new package and handed it to me. So basically I bought 2 shields (one package) and received a 3rd shield installed free. Sort of reminded me of the old apple store.

didn't like the alignment
the film goes over the front mic and camera lens. i do not like this feature and will be returning the product. however, i give it three stars for package design and the clear steps to apply the film. it comes with a cloth, dust removing film (which is only the size of the screen and not the size of the entire front face plate, which is silly!), the film itself, and a paper card to smooth out any bubbles. …

Good product and feels smooth to the touch
The great thing about this product is that it comes with the kit to put on the film, which is really easy. The only thing I would watch out for is, "haste makes waste." I believe every film protector can relate to this, so saying this the kit makes it readily available to clean, and to put on the phone. I love the texture of the film as my fingers don't get stuck on it, they slide smoothly over the film (not all screen protectors are like that).
MOST IMPORTANT- take your time cleaning the phone and putting the protector on. I used tape to lift the edges, and more tape to kind of get those little dots of dirt off the areas that produce bubbles (or the ones that dont move) and the card to push the bubbles to the edges. I don't have any bubbles on my screen and it looks like I never even put on a screen protector :). Great price for two! …

Does this go all the way around the home button? Most iphone 5 screen protectors I've seen leave a gap under the button.

The back of the iPhone 5 will more than likely not be able to have a film on it due to the raised Ap ple & iPhone logos. I have seen them sold places and seen them on and it just will not lie flat. …
