The screen protector is designed to prevent scratches and absorb shocks. The surface of the glass is highly polished and keeps very clean with a simple wipe of a cloth. The screen protector may feel like plastic to touch but rest assured it is 100% class, this is due to the thinness of the screen and the special coating on it. Due to the way this screen protector is produced to allow full curve around the edge of your phone, it can only have adhesive on the top and bottom front sections and a thin strip down the sides. You need to ensure your phone is cleaned extremely well in these key sections in order to gain good adhesiveness and once you apply the screen protector make sure you apply plenty of pressure by rubbing this area to make the adhesive stick. Due to this it is not like ordinary screens which adhere to the full lens of the screen, this therefore leaves a very small hair size gap between the screen of the phone and the screen protector which can make it a little less responsive and reduce the function on the edges especially more than traditional screen protectors and might have a slight "bounce" feel to it. If you are the type of person whom like total 100% response then I fear this product may not be suitable for you.
