anyone tried sapphire hoda screen protector?
https://www.us-hoda.com/products/017671254001

any feedback? especially oleophobic coating and impact resistant especially the edge
*
Bought it and Using it since day 1 of getting my iPhone. The oleophobic coating is good, smooth screen. Simple wipe, takes away all the smudges. Will it last? No idea, been just 1 week.

Impact resistant? Not sure how to gauge that, but the sides are not sharp and nice fitting.

It comes with an alignment tool, applying it is easy. But you need to do some work to make sure no bubbles. Once u get it right, it's been good.

Thanks for the feedback man.
Do u mind to share how much (USD49 kind of value?) and where do u get it?
*
Direct from US HODA website Before iPhone launch. $49 Usd or so. It’s Rm200 plus plus which is similar to imos sapphire type screen protector.

I prefer hoda than imos. I used imos and bought from connect2u before.

whoa..... at shoppee its cheaper... fake ah?

Sorry, let me clarify. Someone asked about Hoda Sapphire screen protector. It's a man-made Sapphire material.
https://www.us-hoda.com/products/017671254001, the price is ~$49 USD with free shipping.

I haven't seen anyone selling Hoda Sapphire yet. I did see Connect2u selling IMOS Sapphire screen protector, like RM250 (https://shopee.com.my/Imos-Sapphire-Glass-Screen-Protector-for-iPhone-Series-(Universal-Compatibility)-i.957936.4339113847)

So far Shopee/Lazada, the Hoda screen protectors are "tempered glass" ranging from RM69 to RM99 and commonly Machines/Epicentre carries. Example like this: https://shopee.com.my/Hoda-Full-Coverage-Te...19078.577776638

The pricing is not fake product (can't say for all, but that's the pricing range). Sapphire is definitely a step up. (How long it stands up for HODA, ask me in few months/year time, but used IMOS Sapphire before, so it's good)

Hoda Sapphire - ~RM200 (free shipping)
IMOS Sapphire - ~RM250

Problem with tempered glass/Corning/Asahi, the sides easily chips off due to drops or knocks (that's any brand that I used, Rhinoshield, IMOS, Hoda etc). And those PET type screen protectors? The oleophobic coating tends to wear off around 8-10 months time. I have OCD on spending money for screen protectors. whistling.gif rclxs0.gif

I settled with Sapphire type. The rate i'm changing screen protectors, it evens out the price anyhow. cool2.gif

hows the oleophobic coating? and fingerprint?

It's good. Similar to PET and tempered glass. For Hoda Sapphire, need to use longer to tell you. But IMOS Sapphire been lasting for 8 months plus.

I think Sapphire is a better material. Same like watches with Sapphire glass.

There's a discounted price now at RM205.17. Original retail price will be RM287.25.

For comparison, IMOS Sapphire is RM250.

u still got one more sapphire brand

Shellrus  USD80 price tag doh.gif

I think Shellrus is too over the top, it's double the price of Hoda/IMOS.

Hoda Sapphire is using the same Sapphire man made material with GIA certification etc. I threw away all the packaging, but it came with all those certification in the box.

8 months plus? mine lasted a whole year still good as new  hmm.gif

maybe different user different usage
*
Let me clarify... i meant IMOS Sapphire is still good but it's only used for 8 months plus. I can't provide a long term usage of Sapphire either for Hoda or IMOS. But given the time used for IMOS Sapphire 8 months. It's way better than any PET screen protector.

How the scratches happen? Is the case good? It's RM109, not cheap also. And the warranty replacement is unlimited?

Don’t know about you guys, do you notice that the lens flare is quite severe in this edition of the iPhone?

I get lens flare / ghosting on most my photos / videos with light source hitting the camera directly.

CMCO, not much chance to go out take photos. sweat.gif

But can share a few pics to show what you are referring to?

Can replace once for free in 2 years. Not sure the process but from the website it seems just a simple chat with them will do.

Scratches from daily usage only. Not sure how also. Very minor la mainly hairline scratches and visible if I shine light on it but for the price I pay I expected better.

Only good side is I like the super good fit at the buttons and overall. Really makes the phone looks much slimmer than the Apple leather case and that itself is already damn slim.

Protection wise might be super low though lol. But I guess I’m more concern on the phone scratches rather than it breaking so a slim case is fine.
*
Not expecting drop protection, but at least the case can withstand a bit scratches. But if the case scratches that easily, a bit pointless.

Oh my.. pass by Switch.. check out leather case. Only left black and product red. I was thinking brown would be nice.

Splurged on black leather case. It’s a very good fit. Slim fit. It’s not meant for drop protection definitely. But the feel is good.

I used nomad rugged leather case both black (xs max) & brown (11 pro max) previously. I prefer the black one better.

For my 12 pro max, i choose apple leather case because it’s thinner & this time apple case is not bad at all, it covers bottom part & have better protection at the camera bump too
*
After buying it today and using. I second this. Apple leather case is good. Can’t say for 11 and XS previously.

placed my order, how's the installation ? easy with the included helper ?

I rate it as

1) easy for alignment since it comes with the alignment holder
2) good dust free approach
3) getting bubbles out.. slight easy to medium. Depends on how much you need to push down the air bubbles.

For me, quite a few spots need me to lift up the corners.

I find IMOS, X-One experiences better.

You opted fast shipping or normal?

The normal shipping for me was quite fast.

Post your comments on HODA Sapphire. Hope you find it good.

Anyone already have flolab installed? Curious to know how is it. I only know of this brand in this thread.

Oh god.. I will admit I did get the HODA sapphire lens protector. Waiting for Shipping. I think looks a bit overkill but I blame this poisonous thread.
