Whether you have an Android phone or IOS phone (or others), I would REALLY REALLY like to have non-reflective glass on my phone. 

 

Is this too much to ask?

You can make it non-reflective with a screen protector. You can't make it smooth if the glass itself is manufactured non-reflective. From a manufacturing standpoint, I understand why they don't offer both.

I do have a screen protector but the glass is still highly reflective.

 

I guess non-reflective glass is a pipe dream then  :deadhorse:

There are screen protectors that are designed to be non-glare specifically. Example here: http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/3MScreens_NA/Protectors/Shop_Products/Featured+Products/Anti_Glare_Protectors/

I am a visionary :hysterical:  

 

And my teachers always said to stop day dreaming (if only they knew what I was dreaming about - glass?).

 

Thanks Animal.

You're welcome. Since you're a visionary...

What numbers should I choose for my lotto ticket next week, eh? :P
