Incipio now has a full line of screen films under the Plex name, including this self-healing option for the iPhone 5 ($16). Coming as a single sheet in a flat envelope, it ships with a microfiber cleaning cloth and an applicator card. Rather than precision cut holes around the openings on the front of the iPhone, the film has a trapezoidal opening at the top for the earpiece, FaceTime camera, and sensors, as well as a scoop at the bottom for the Home button. "Self healing" means the film can automatically repair itself after small scratches.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
