    I like the Yootech on my OG Pixel XL, but they haven't released one for the 2nd gen phones yet.

    Going completely naked, no case no screen protector. I don't like the feel of having something over the screen

    Picked up this one as it's the only one I could find and be assured of getting in advance of receiving my Pixel 2 XL.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU6017813 $14.99, in stock (currently) via Amazon Prime.

    Didn't see any available via Prime for the smaller Pixel 2.

    Naked here also. I gave up on screen protectors 3 phones ago. Never had an issue scratching the screen.

    Exactly. I've had my 6P for 2 years and haven't scratched it yet, and that is GG4. The XL 2 has GG5 so it should be even better.

    what's everyone doing for screen protection on the pixel 2?-71ge-jg31kl._sl1000_.jpg

    It's only $8 for a 2-pack, so if it sucks, I'll just get a new one once there are reviews available.

    Had this on my original pixel. It seems that every protector has some people that like it in some that don't, for the price, this one was very nice even at twice the price. I'm trying to contact them to see if it's coming out for the pixel 2

    I have using Whoosh Diamond Defense on my current Pixel XL. Probably do the same thing for my 2 XL. There's an SGS report that seems to validate the screen protection.

    Verizon had a tempered glass for the XL I’ll probably try.

    None, from what I've read, screen protectors aren't needed.

    Has anyone found a dry-apply film protector? Seems like the only ones offered are wet-apply or glass. Boxwave lists one in their store, but says it's discontinued if you try to purchase it.

    I think because of the curve, the dry apply that usually uses static-cling to adhere to the screen isn't as flexible when it comes to curved screens. If the static cling is bigger than the flat surface of the screen or applied wrong, it will lift up and cause dirt to adhere to the underside as well as possibly lift up.

    Basically, the little dots help the screen protector touch the display to a point (but not stick down all the way which would lead to easy cracking).

    But using the dot matrix pattern results in another problem: the "rainbow effect". This is the reflection of light between two sheets of glass (the phone's display and the tempered glass screen protector that isn't glued 100% onto the display), and it can be quite distracting.

    Since the flat glass portion does not adhere to the glass, there is a very very small gap inbetween the TGSP and phone screen which can trap dust and very small particles.

    I haven't used one so can't speak to as to whether it is visible under normal observation, but do know that there were complaints about them when used under the extreme-closeup perspective in Daydream VR.

    Just got this in a few minutes ago. While for obvious reasons I can't speak to how well it installs just yet, the packaging was very clean and solid (good, given it was shipped in a bubblewrap envelope). The SP itself is clearly at all edges and corners to conform to the Pixel XL, with cutouts for all sensors.

    Will update with how well it works, including if the dot matrix (invisible to naked eye) and if that impacts Daydream VR experience, after I get my Pixel 2 XL in, hopefully by the end of this week.

    There are some that use static but most use a light adhesive like a sticky-note. I've always used these on past phones, including the S7's annoyingly curved screen, but it does seem like most are going to wet-apply. I'm mostly concerned with the wet-apply solution getting into those big front-facing speakers and gumming up the works or causing damage. I can't see how that could be fixed if it happens.
