    I've owned two V20's. The first one I bought when it came out (the LG-US996 unlocked model), I installed a full coverage tempered glass screen protector (the PThink brand). However, the top portion of the second screen near the front camera never adhered properly even after a second install... Therefore I concluded the phone's glass was warped. Bought a 2nd V20 and the glass is 100% flat and it installed perfectly. Did anyone else encounter that problem? What screen protector do you have and is it full coverage? I might get a different V20 but scared it might have the same problem...

    This is the best one and I have tried many. No rainbow, full coverage, sticks right to the glass entirely and has great response.

    Nice, that's the exact one I have. A VERY good brand.. the glass is very scratch resistant and lasts a long time.. perfect fit too. Almost a year now and it looks good still! Superb manufacturing quality.. I think it's more scratch resistant than the Gorilla Glass 4 that's on the V20...

    I've had the VZW version since day 1. I don't mind the partial coverage. I do wish it were fingerprint resistant but I've never seen ANY screen that really is despite oleophobic coatings.

    I have dry skin and don't eat greasy food but every phone I've ever used is covered with fingerprints within an hour of cleaning it cover glass or not.

    I personally don't use them. I am careful with my phones and the Gorilla Glass should be ample to protect my device whether it's tucked in my pants pocket or sitting on my desk.

    Yeah, the phone honestly is rated military grade and can withstand drops. Gorilla Glass 4 & 5 is more scratch prone than the old Gorilla Glass 3, however more drop and shatter resistant. People like us have OCD and would like to keep their phones in pristine condition especially if planning to keep the phone for many many years.

    I used to have partial coverage and the unprotected screen was scratched, although I took care of it and was careful. GG4 is easy to scratch. Oleophobic coatings will wear down eventually, regardless of what you do. There is a glass wax they sell on Amazon that bring back the smoothness of the glass and oil resistance.

    What is this glass wax on Amazon? I'd be interested in purchasing it.

    I'm telling you guys. Get the one I got. Try it. I was surprised at how good it is. Literally the only downside is the LG logo being somewhat obscured.

    I have it too and it's the best hands down. It's over a year now and the glass still looks good.

    Thanks. Now I have scratches
    Lol. But seriously
    if I don't tilt it at an angle under a light I can't tell that they're there.
    There aren't many and they are small.
    It feels so much better naked. The phone that is.

    The screen protector above feels like the naked phone. And it will cover up those new scratches you found. I'll make a video of it. It's been in for 6 months.

    Here is a video of the best screen protector for the V20. And you get two for 10 bucks.

    I bought it and used it on an older device I have (not my V20, which has no scratches, since I've always had a screen protector on the V20). It worked a charm and cleaned and removed the scratches from the screen on the MXPE, which I've had since October 2015 and never used a screen protector on.

    Thanks for the recommendation. This glass wax is awesome and very easy to use. ☺️
