    MIME, one of the most respected Tempered Glass protectors, is now offering Ghost Glass for the Turbo. I'm not sure if it has a Halo effect though

    I wonder if this would work with a Otterbox Defender case

    Who wants to get one and try it? Please, please!!

    I started with the Extreme Guard... that was terrible. Then tried the .3mm iVoler.... that was bad. Now I'm using the .2mm iVoler and that is... Ok.
    I'm happy with my iVoler but I'm always looking for new and better products. But who know's if this one is better....

    I am not risking it because like you I've tried both iVoler and Extreme. Both were unacceptable so I am not using any protector. I emailed MIME to ask if the edges were cut to support this or not.

    This one is a little to pricey to just rip my current iVoler off to try. Let us know what they say when they get back to you.

    Will do. It looks cut nicely. Also, there is one protector that claims to be cut less to better avoid the lifting.

    Verizon's Flexible Glass doesn't feel anywhere near glass compared to the real tempered glass protectors. They also attract finger prints similar to plastic protectors from my experience. Besides that, the fit is poor but I'm willing to accept that size if its the only way for no Haloing.

    I have the Otterbox Defender on my Turbo and moisture under the OEM plastic protector has been an occasional problem impeding fuctionality of the capacitive buttons as well as screen sensitivity to finger movements. It's not a phone problem, rather an environmental problem, but one I have to deal with every day. I've been waiting to replace that plastic cover with a real glass cover and, since it appears Zagg isn't going to do anything, I think I'll give this one a try. In my line of work I can make anything fit anything so I'm not worried about that part, just being able to consistently and easily use the phone and have it protected in the work environment. I'll read up on the company and, if their products generally have positive reviews, will order. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Update, read the reviews for a similar product on Amazon for the Nexus 5 and went ahead and ordered on the linked web site. They have a free shipping coupon and no tax so 24.95 and item is listed as being in stock. Guess I'll know how things go in 2-5 days.

    Response from MIME regarding the fit

    Hi Stephen,

    Thank you for checking us out! Due to the curvature of the Droid Turbo screen, our glass protectors maximize protection of the device by extending to the very edges of the flat surface area of the screen to minimize the halo effect. Hope this helps, and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and we'll be happy to help!

    Best,
    MIME

    I found a person who has the MIME. Seems to be a slight Halo at the top but definitely not bad. May be he positioned it too high but I'm not sure.

    Quick update: Protector arrived today and I installed. I'll use a bit today and it'll get tested since I'm on a painting job and I'll get back with impressions. First impression is it went on easy and was easy to get evenly adhered. The unit is just slightly smaller than the screen and has only one small cutout, at center top, I presume for the proximity sensor. It feels good and I get good feedback from the phone, a lot better than from using the OEM Otterbox protector installed. That protector was easy to release from the top case and the case installed without incident.

    Unknown whether it's worth 25 bucks but so far I'm satisfied.

    Are you talking about the Otterbox Defender case?

    MIME is a lot like Zagg Glass so to me it would be worth it. Especially if it doesn't cause a Halo effect like every other one.

    Affirmative. Just got back from the painting job and the main plus I noticed was no sweat buildup inhibiting function like with the old Defender plastic cover. So far, satisfied. However, I'm a blue collar phone guy so not nearly as discriminating as some on these forums. I would hold out for a more comprehensive and critical review. Me, I just throw the thing in my coveralls and go to work.

    Do you see any lifting at all? I know you said it went on evenly.

    To be honest I can't tell the glass shield is even on the phone. I'm looking at it under light right now and I can see the edges of it but that's it.

    If you can get a picture that would be great. Not sure if you have another camera.

    I buy a ivoler tempered screen protector on Amazon can stick to the screen well, and it's easy to install,lifetime replacement program,I doubt whether MIME tempered glass have the same quality compared with the ivoler ones?
    MIME is better. Higher quality control. I've tried ivoler and the halo effect was bad and varied on 3 different protectors.

    Since you mentioned the Otterbox, I don't have this tempered glass (i got iVoler), but I found my Otterbox plastic shield over the top bubbled too much. Everything had to be done by thumb force for me; finger force wouldn't swipe or anything. So I popped it off and use the case. Everything is great, and I have a protective screen that can easily be replaced if/when it scratches too much, unlike the Otterbox screen pretty much being screwed and forcing you to buy a new one.

    Anyone else do this?

    So I thought I would give the Mime a try and I am glad I did. I think I can now stop my search for a quality made glass screen protector.
    (I pulled off my iVoler to try this one out. I was happy with the iVoler but there was some halo around the top left corner that just kept bugging me. The rest of it was fine.)
    Compared to the iVoler the Mime is cut a hair smaller all around. They did a great job on the sides, It fits the Turbo perfect. The top is fine except for a tiny spot on the right edge of the camera. Its a little bubble that has actually gotten smaller then when It was first installed. I'm hoping with a little time that will smooth out all the way. The bottom fits great no lifting and no halo. I do think they could have even made the bottom cut a little bigger to come down more on the screen. (the iVoler I had came down almost all the way to the mic's with no lifting)

    All and all I am really happy. The feel is good and almost no finger prints. Any smudges or prints that do show come right off with a wipe of the sleeve.

    Here are some pictures to get an idea of the fit. Pictures were taken with my old Razr Maxx HD. It was rather hard to get a good clear picture of the edge of the protector. In some of the pictures it looks to be slight halo going on but I can assure you this is just the reflection of the sun coming through my window.
