    i purchased this one before the phone was released so i didn't really have any reviews to go off of.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU6055577

    this is my 1st curved screen phone so i'm not sure what my expectations should even be. the screen protectors i had for my G4 and G6 covered them well. due to the curve, it seems the gap between the glass protector and the case border is even that much bigger. i don't think any damage will occur barring a sever drop but the dust accumulation will be something i have to be on top of. all in all, it's better than nothing for now at least.Attachment 270676

    My review on that page says it all... Perfect.
    Looks like a great screen protector, do you have photos with your device?

    I got my LG V30 day one and had ordered a couple brands of tempered curved protectors that actually arrived the day before the phone. I have had zero issues. No rsinbow.,the layers flat. All full screen. I think the curve is subtle enough they can pull it off. Of course I broke one with keys in my pocket.

    What screen protector has no rainbows? I tried 3 so far and they all have a rainbow in the center

    The rainbow ones usually don't actually adhere to the glass but float on top of it while the edges are glued down. Hopefully someone will come up with one that actually works like the V20, it took a few months before they made a really good screen protector that worked (PThink was the brand). Since the glass is curved, it's going to be tough or impossible.

    I also recall someone making a hybrid plastic and glass screen protector that actually worked on the curved G5, though it was a bit pricey.

    Opposite experience here. I never found one for my V20 that didn't rainbow. I just found one I could tolerate. I have tried three for the V30 and none had a rainbow. One was only partial coverage and actually too small bit be others were full screen and fine. I only changed because I broke one with keys in my pocket. The one I broke came with my Zizo case(the higher end zizo). I think I have a Spigen on now. You do have to get them in perfect though.

    Well thanks guys, I have a terrible problem with sensitivity and 2 rainbows blobs in the center of the screen protector. I had Verizon put one on (gadget guard) I believe and tried one from GO Wireless also. Both have the same issues. So I'm still looking for brand recommendations. (Is my V30 lagging and unresponsive to touch or is it my screen protector.. I wonder... Hmm) But I can't deny that the giant rainbow blobs are ugly and don't help with the touch sensitivity.
    Thanks

    I think you tried the earlier versions of the full screen protector on the V20. Several months later after release, they came out with one that was 100% full adhesive, with the borders being glued down while the actual screen adheres like a real screen protector.

    With super curved edges, I don't think any manufacture can do it. It's like the S8+ and Note 8, practically impossible and the only way is through wet install protectors.

    Wet install protectors have gotten much better and they feel really smooth. I have a brand called Rinoskin for my Gear Fit 2 and the technology is amazing, looks and feels super smooth and scratches and dings automatically heal. If anyone wants to try the Rinoskin on the V30, let me know!

    Thermoplastic urethane so like a hybrid. If I had a V30, I think I'll get this. I really like the Rinoskin on my Gear Fit2. Installation is sorta easy cause you just spray water on it and squeegee it.

    I actually tried the IQ shield on the S8+ and didn't like the orange peel effect and feel, at least from what I remembered.

    3 months later the screen protector is cracked. Phone was not dropped, so must have happened inside computer/tool bag.

    Besides that I just cannot get used to the ill affects on the touch screen sensitivity, thus I have no interest in the Dmax Lifetime Warranty replacement.

    I got the incipio screen protector which has an alignment tool. I did notice that the screen sensitivity is not as good now and it gets a little rainbow effect. I'll post pictures later to show how it compares to the excellent screen protector I found for my V20 that covers the curves at the top and bottom of that screen, but it annoys me that the screen has a grey haze now instead of being a deep black as it would with a flat screen protector.

    I'll scroll through these posts on this thread to see if anyone has found one that actually adheres to the screen and gives the screen back the nice black it should have when off.

    Just wanted to give a shoutout and thank you for updating with your experience.

    I'm generally a wait-and-see sort of person so seeing people updating their experiences over time is really helpful to me.

    I'm sorry it didn't work out, though.

    It is a flat screen protector. I think flat ones (that do not cover the curve edges have less problems) This item is not actually available

    I ordered a case from AliExpress & it comes with a flat screen protector.

    Click on <View all> in the paragraph <Item description>

    The screen protector does not cover the curved edge, but the raised bezel of the case does.

    Guys pretty much any "full screen" screen protector will be glued at the edges and have the "dot matrix" on the screen to prevent the rainbow effect. Screen sensitivity will go down. I think what everyone is looking for is the "full adhesive" glass screen protectors that fully adhere and not just sit on top of the screen.

    They all do pretty much except for the expensive ones like the Whitestone Dome brand which costs $45! You want to get a "full adhesive" glass screen protector.

    Just got the V30 coming from the V20 and love it so far. I bought a glass screen protector and it looks good but it too has the rainbow affect and is only noticable when the phone screen is black.

    That said, I can live with the rainbow affect for now, but has there been any glass protectors that has satisfied the masses here so far?

    I'm actually very impressed and amazed by this brand.. can't believe how smooth it feels. If I had to pick orange peel effect or no screen protector.. I might just go naked because it's that annoying to me. The RinoSkin is nearly as smooth as glass and best of all, it has self-healing technology.

    Is that what you have on your V30?
