- Protects the notch
Installing the Snapiel screen protector is simple. It comes with a plastic guide that you put over the phone. Next, wipe the screen, followed by peeling off the sticker and laying the protector over the display. Unlike other screen protectors, such as this one from Belkin, it doesn’t feature cutouts for the iPhone notch. There’s only a small one for the speaker. Interestingly, it doesn’t seem to interfere with the function of the phone, especially Face ID. If you muck up, don’t worry, just peel it off and redo.
The notch gets covered up as well.

If you find some dirt on the screen protector when reapplying, use the provided adhesive repair patch to remove it from the Snapiel. I do want to point out that the claims made on its Kickstarter campaign, such as the protector being able to suck dust out, don’t seem to be true. I left a small speck on dust and very tiny fine hair under to see what happens. It’s been at least a month, and the speck and hair is still there. Scratch resistance seems to be pretty good, I’ve yet to see a mark despite daily use and accidental brushes with sharp objects.
At US$28, the Torras Snapiel Screen Protector is a tad on the high side. But being reusable, you could possibly use it on your next iPhone if it keeps to a similar form factor. Get it from from TORRAS directly.
