    Curious if anyone has recommendations on a solid tempered glass screen protector for the Honor 8? The screen is durable as heck, but wouldn't mind adding an extra layer of defense

    I bought a cheap set from Amazon, just made a point of searching for the thinnest I could find due to the 2.5d glass preventing them reaching the edge of the screen.
    0.3mm ones seem to cause really noticeable halo effects.

    I tried the Nillkin and a no name eBay one and they're all awful. Edges lift, allow dust and also crack.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...cUvbUpU5566697 or if you have a case and like that little extra gap to avoid the lifts https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...cUvbUpU5566697 I'm using the 2nd one at the mo with a Spigen® [Rugged Armor] case. Can't seem to avoid the halo effect though.Click image for larger version.

    Still, looks pretty good. But maybe I'm not picky enough :P

    Halo runs throughout the sides... It isn't terrible though

    Does this phone "need" a screen protector? I've never used one on any phone that I've owned and, knock on wood, never had an issue. Is this one of those things that you're the kind of person that always uses one vs the kinds, like me, that doesn't use one?

    Pretty sure it is. I've never used a screen protector, and honestly I have trouble wanting to keep a case on a phone. I'll put one on for a couple days, then get annoyed at it, take it off for a while.

    The glass isn't more scratch prone than other flagships, from my usage. I have been using mine a month without screen protector and have no scratches. Of course things like sand will scratch the glass just like any other smartphone

    I've been looking at that liquid nano screen protector stuff.
    Still not sure if it's a gimmick or not.

    I read that the mirrors on telescopes use a similar coating to help with optical properties.
    Tempered glass is a preference for most folks I realize.

    Curved screens presently make tempered glass less of a good option for me however.

    I bought a pair of tempered glass screen protectors off of Amazon - it was a mid-tier quality company I think, but it still has a lot of the features that one would look for in a screen protector. I didn't want to spend a ton of money, and I'm usually quite careful with my devices. But it was a good deal! Less than $15 and I got two.

    Android Central has an article about the best screen protectors for the Honor 8. As long as you go tempered glass, I think you're leagues above plastic in terms of protection.

    I envy you your skill! I'd love to not use a screen protector on my phone, but I know I'd inadvertently do something to it and would then regret that decision! What colour Honor 8 do you have?

    Sort of a thread hijack, but I switched to using a matte film screen protector, because the tempered glass ones were shattering too quickly on me (I drop my phone often and hard, unfortunately)

    I bought a tempered glass protector that has curved edges. It protected well allright, but I felt that the touch sensitivity dropped so drastically that I took it off. Now I'm looking for another protector..
