    Hey everyone! I just received The mime screen protector and all I can say is wow! The packaging is so unique and amazing. Honestly I could have never thought packaging for a glass screen protector could be so awesome. The installation process was a breeze. Mime doesn't rip you off because they really invest the 30 bucks to every little detail. I am having no sign of halo anywhere on the protector.

    Very nice indeed. As long as my cheap-o Xtreme Guard continues to serve me well, at the give away price of $6, I can't be tempted away from them. However, the this kind of quality in packaging alone is impressive, and I'm looking forward to hearing more positive experiences with MIME on Turbo, in case I ever have to pay real moola for screen protection.

    I installed it with minimal halo effect but I took it off the same day. No idea why but since it covers the sensors I found it to mess the device capabilities up too much. I could no longer twist my wrist for camera, waving/pick up to activate display was very intermittent (even after reboot), etc. I removed it and every issue went away.

    Maybe its placement but its not worth losing functionality. I know Verizon has Glass now but I'm done worrying about it. These 2D displays suck. Great feeling protector but I can't figure out why my sensors were acting up.

    Anyone else run into this? I know it was an issue with the thicker iVoler version but haven't heard of it on MIME.

    I didn't have any of those issues with mine. But I did have to remove it. I dropped my phone and it hit the base of my desk and put a chip in the protector. Thankfully it worked as it should have and protected the screen. I was going to order another but I had a replacement iVoler that I figured I would try out first. That went on great with almost no halo. (much better than the last one I had) So I think for now Ill stick with what is working and maybe just order a replacement Mime if I need it.

    I wouldn't call my experience typical. MIME is normally great and maybe the positioning was off slightly but I can't see how since it was centered. Either way, I contacted MIME regarding it to see why this would happen and they refunded me my money no questions asked. They have never heard of this before which makes sense but I got unlucky.

    I have the Verizon Tempered Glass (not Flexible) on the way now. We shall see how this fits because I do know it feels great.

    Will do. I anticipate that it'll fit similar to the Flexible Glass which leaves a little room but that's fine by me. I would rather be guaranteed no lifting and all sensors cut out.

    I realize this is what it takes since the Note 4 requires the same figment.

    The Verizon glass ones are just thick plastic. I had the flexible one which I had to remove to send in my defective turbo. At the time I got the turbo there was just that one so I got it. 20 damn bucks for just bs.

    That's great news your xtreme guard is doing its justice and serving as a great screen protector. Yes the mime is expensive but worth it because you can clearly see they also invested those 25 bucks in the packaging and the quality do the glass and glue to last a long time

    The Flexible Glass isn't the same thing as the actual Tempered Glass that they're offering now. They're two different products and from past experience the Verizon Tempered Glass feels like glass

    Yes, the Flexible Glass sucks.

    I think you need to apply the protector slightly higher.

    Although, either way I'm tired of this. All of our experiences vary so much on every protector. 2D glass sucks.

    Think it's safe to remove and reapply? I just assumed because of the edges that it wasn't placement. The front facing camera is centered very well with the cut out

    I feel the same. I'm starting to wonder if the DT glass slightly varies from each handset. Maybe glass screen protectors are just hit and miss?

    I've wondered this as well -- could there be variations in the surface of the Turbos?

    The Tempered Glass was delivered but I won't be home to check it out until tonight. I'll post my impressions later.

    It can't hurt to have a little extra protection. If I get a scratch I would rather pull off the glass screen protector and apply another one instead of getting the screen replaced.

    After a 25% success rate with iVoler, I ordered a Mime - set to arrive next week. Here's hoping it is more of a hit than a miss...

    Its installed the Verizon Tempered Glass today! Its about as big as the Flexible Glass but its thicker and feels like actual glass!

    I am sorry I have no additional camera to get a picture but it fits great. I see slight halo effect on the sides but its far better than the rest and may be my fault. I kept aligning it because I kept messing up since its a perfect fit width wise for the display itself.

    Edit - the Halo is gone after wiping with pressure. Best protector on the market thus far.

    Highly recommended to everyone that is looking for real glass and a product that SHOULD go on the same each time. I had one Halo in the right center but it went away with some pressure.

    If you look closely you can see the size of the protector. Best I can do with no camera

    Verizon Tempered Glass

    I called the other day and they were not in stock. However, he did say they should have them soon so you would need to call and find out. When you do just make sure they understand you're talking about actual Tempered Glass and not the Flexible.

    Awesome. They're closed today, but I'll call tomorrow to inquire.
    I've had a $10 off coupon from Ensignal for awhile and I've been holding onto it only since it has no expiration date.
    The stores are so limited on what accessories they offer/carry and they're usually quite over priced so I didn't think I would ever use the coupon, but if I can use this on a tempered glass screen, bonus.
    Thanks for the info!
