    Default the glass feels weird? or is there a clear thin layer sticker on the screen?

    moving from the m8 to this the screen feels really weird like theres something there and its not smooth at all. i tried peeking the side but i i have no idea if this is how the screen is supposed to be or what.

    Not that I know of. Other than the protection film on it when you take it out of the box, there is nothing on the screen. If you want more smoothness, try Invisible Shield Glass. I love it.

    The display should be the same as the M8. I had 0 issues with the Glass but remember the glass feels better after a few wipe downs or uses. The film leave a slight residue that wears away.

    +1 on Zagg Glass.

    It should wear away. Try wiping the glass with a clothe for 30 seconds and see if it gets any better.

    I had the invisible shield original put on because of the added grip it provides; always put on all my phones. The sales guy told me about the "glass" however at $39 I simply want gonna bite. He did say it help prevent screen shatter....

    One advantage of Tempered Glass is that its "supposed" to help absorb some impact. I can't confirm this but I've heard it many times.

    I use "Wet and Dry" Screen Wipes from Amazon. Just touch the wet cloth to the screen and then wipe with the dry cloth. Its meant to clean LCD TV's and Monitors. I use it for my Kindles as well but only every couple of months and only if it needs it. I use it on my car's dashboard display as well.
