    This screen protector is so good I wanted to warn everyone about it.

    I bought this from tmobile and I was desperate for a protector because I thought one would come pre-installed.

    This bad boy diminishes the clarity a bit of the screen. No need to see that beautiful screen

    - The fingerprint area is thinned out as you can see from the picture

    - The selfie camera is covered

    - All this for $45

    I disagree Whitestone Dome is the best in my opinion. I used it on all of my devices. No issues with the under the glass fingerprint scanner.

    WhiteStone Dome is better, IMO, too...as long as you can extrapolate from the somewhat confusing installation instructions and don't mind the comparatively high price.

    Sorry man, I don't think having that cut out is good since we use S-PEN to write. Personally I like the WSD screen. Saved my @$$ many time.

    Yes, being very sarcastic. I tried this as well since my WhiteStone was crap (arrived completely broken) and they are not responding to customer service requests.

    Regardless, this is total trash and not worth it. The responsiveness is garbage, the fingerprint area is garbage and you can see it when the screen is on and it distracts you from anything else on the scree. The adhesive is only at the top and bottom of the screen and is not full coverage.

    BEWARE, I am STILL trying to get the refund they said I could get, but apparently, you can't.

    I am very sorry you had to experience this too. I ripped it off within 10 seconds. I can't believe they are charging so much.

    I like how the packaging doesn't even really show it to you because they know its trash but they want you to buy it first then jump through a bunch of hoops trying to get a refund.

    The store was busy when I had mine installed and when the rep came out from the back room with the phone, it looked like he was ready for me to bash his head in. Even HE knew it was trash (after the install). This was a Sprint Store that converted, so they had not done much with the T-Mo stuff and this was his first time seeing this. He told me he is not going to recommend these to anyone, ever.

    If you go into any T-Mobile Store and see shelves lines with Blue Packages Screen Protectors, STAY AWAY!

    Honestly, I would have rather used packing tape stuck to my screen for a screen protector than this.

    Awful, keep pushing for that refund!

    I am nervous about the liquid adhesive install glass options so I am probably going to try the Zagg "glass fusion" which I realize isn't glass but easier install and there's a kiosk locally for replacements if needed. My mom's N10+ had what we were sure was a small gouge after a fall and wound up being the factory plastic protector only, so I'm less hard on the effectiveness of non-glass protectors these days.

    I do miss the days of inexpensive glass protectors though! Darn curved screens.

    So they actually sold that protector with a hole in it eh??

    I was very concerned going into receiving my N20U because I really wanted a screen protector that works with the FPS and no matter how good the WSD is, I just didn't want to deal with a hard liquid application. But I didn't want to go without a protector at least in the beginning.

    But reading in S10 or Note 10 forums I thought I always read that FPS usually don't dont work except for WSD. That's why people tried to hold on to the factory protector for as long as they can because besides WSD that works the best so I wasn't expecting much using a Spigen TPS protector.

    But I installed the Spigen and the FPS has worked very consistently. If I get any failures I think right now it's on my part because I'm still learning to press on the sensor consistently playing with pressure and such.

    Makes me wonder... was it just BS that FPS don't work well with other plastic or other protectors? We're using the same first gen sensor used in the S10, Note 10, S20 right?? Or did they make some sort of software improvement where it just works better now with protectors? I mean, my FPS on my N20U with Spigen is working better than my Note 8 ever did.

    At this point if I read someone concerned that the phone didn't come with a protector except the film with a hole, I'd say... forget using packing tape as a solution (as mentioned above lol)... just get a Spigen or LK and call it a day.

    Aaah. At least not a real hole. But like I said, doesn't seem necessary.

    Well, I can only imagine that if it wasn't there, the fingerprint reader would probably not work at all. It was ugly, stupid and I keep thinking that I should burn the store down so no one else would have to deal with it.

    And, if I'm not mistaken, did they paint the chin of the glass black??

    Yeah that's the problem with these glass screen where they are only glued at the edges. as form fitting as it looks against the original glass, there is going to be some micron of space thats going to keep it from being consistently accurate. I guess they thought thinning it out was the issue. At least that's my theory.

    iPhone glass screens... adhesive on the entire side and never ever have a problem with responsiveness with those. I'm sure if they had a FPS would be no problem with adhesive created a constant and tight seal between the two glass pieces.

    Is that the pure gear? I had the pure gear. Wasted $45. FPS wouldn’t work and orange peel bad. They wouldn’t return it either.
