    What tempered glass screen protector are you using for the V20? I ordered one on Amazon, but then later new reviews revealed that the protector is the incorrect size. Does anyone have a recommendation for one that covers the whole screen?

    Thanks.

    I purchases this one. It cover entire "lit" screen and secondary which is good because the V20 top and bottom screen bevel does not affect it.

    When applying, start at bottom where the screen lights up and your good. I have had it installed since e Sunday and no real issues as of yet. Good price to get one by until something more superman release. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01LK...cUvbUpU5522912

    Bear in mind that the tempered glass is no harder than Gorilla Glass 4 (actually, GG4 approaches synthetic sapphire in hardness). About the only difference is that when GG4 breaks, it breaks into large shards (which can stab through your hand), but when tempered glass breaks, it crumbles into tiny and not-very-sharp pieces. They both have about the same scratch resistance. (And it's pretty easy to get a cooling defect in glass, and have it shatter when you drop the phone - even if it's on the case, not the glass.)

    Plastic, 3/$5 screen protectors aren't hard or tough - if you're careless you'll scratch them. But at $1.66, that's not too much of a concern (and my 4 year old one still has no scratches). AND - the plastic absorbs some of the shock, so the screen might survive a drop as well as a tempered glass protector. (And the pieces are held together if the protector is attached with adhesive).

    Until we get transparent metal, that's about the best we can do. Hard, scratch-resistant protectors break, soft, shock-absorbing protectors scratch.

    I'm thinking about getting one because the screen protector that came with the phone was installed crooked and my case messed it up.

    I just find that any of the plastic ones create a weird friction on the phone. I'd rather have the glass ones because invariably they collect some micro scratch, and I'd rather replace it than look at a scratch on my actual screen for the life of the phone. I just haven't found any that fit the V20 yet. All of the Amazon ones seem to be fake or not perfect for the V20.

    Anyone know if a tempered glass protector from the V10 would work on the V20. I ask because Tech Armor still carries the V10 one and they are the best performing in my opinion?

    It won't be the exact fit that you're looking for. I think we are going to be waiting a bit for a good product. I hear it comes new with a protector installed so I may leave that on until the market shakes out.

    Apparently, there is a top and bottom curvature on the V20. Therefore, most protectors are going to detach at the top and bottom. Most likely, it will be very difficult to find a glass protector that has full coverage. UGH. Annoyed by these curved screens.

    Same with Sprint, that's why I'm using the crappy OtterBox defender screen protector still. I just want tempered glass so I can take my phone out of the defender and put it in my Spigen liquid crystal when I'm not at work.

    I'm using a leftover v10 tempered glass. It has no cutouts and covers from the top of 2nd screen to bottom of home buttons. Perimeter doesn't stick too well. It's temporary.

    LG needs to make one of these for the camera glass and send for free to all customers. ASAP.

    I swear I saw one on Verizon's site, for $24.99. I might have to TOFTT.

    I ordered the one from VZW. My discount and tax brought it to just under $20. I'll report back when it's on the phone.

    I have a Galaxy S7 edge and it has GG4 and it scratched very easily. GG4 in no way approaches synthetic sapphire in hardness.

    I'm just keeping the Verizon plastic shipping protector on for now. Feels good, no worrying about it peeling up at the top and bottom, and seems to be staying well. If it does wear out, I'll go without.

    The shipped protector would be better without the little pull tab which is bound to snag on something, also why did they not cover the LG logo at the bottom?
