    It never occurred to me it wasn't glass because the xda forum thread it was posted on is for tempered glass protectors. After reading the manufacturer's description if my iloome has a halo I'm still going to buy the Tech 21 because I think it offers a high level of impact protection against screen breakage and there's no halo. I think it's a considerably higher level of protection than the average film protector.

    i think its still "flexible glass"has a 8H hardness rating

    I didn't see a hardness rating anywhere on Tech 21's site but I still think it's a highly impact resistant protector. I'm hoping the iloome Flexmate I ordered goes on without a halo. Apparently according to a poster on xda forums the revised Bear Motion glass protector goes on without a halo. So fat that one and this Tech 21 are the only two that apply without halos that I am aware of.

    I see it also and that's on the flat part of the screen. Maybe I should have kept that Tech 21 and given it a try.

    I don't think we will ever see a tempered glass that will work perfect on the Note 4

    I don't think that's a halo I think it's a reflection from the overhead light. The poster specifically said there was no halo and based on other pictures posted on xda of protectors with halos I'm sure she knows what a halo looks like.

    According to another xda forums poster the revised Bear Motion 9h protector doesn't have a halo but no pictures.

    I'll know about the iloome Flexmate when I get mine next week. If that has a halo I'll order the Bear Motion because it's so inexpensive. If that doesn't work I'm getting the Tech 21.

    I sent Tech 21 customer service an inquiry about their Note 4 screen shield and they never answered back
    They answered right away when I ask about when the clear Note 4 mesh cases would be available.

    No screen protector will do unless you want a massive halo around it.

    Nobody has even tried to make a protector that covers the whole screen. Here is a picture of the Flexmate installed, no halo.

    Clearly halo effect on left side of screen, almost looks like bubbles. Looks exactly like mine.

    Just put on the super shields. Barely covers edges side to side.. hoping the small bubble like thing comes out.. Will replace this once something comes out that covers more. Not bad for $7 though. Does have halo. Not very bothersome to me though

    It looks to me as though that part of the screen was not fully pushed down due to the fact that the area above and below it are sealed and flat

    Actually, I'm interested in the Skinomi Tech Glass. I have the Spigen plastic protector. It's decent and covers well, but not oleophobic. Plus, I'd like to try out a good glass protector.

    I have the Skinomi Tech Glass. It's okay... I think the gaps around the edges are larger than they need to be, and even though it's only on the flat part the edges still don't seem to keep great contact. It does seem to look fairly good in the screen area though.

    Fantastic!! I'm supposed to get my iloome today too. The long search for a glass protector without a halo has ended. Yours looks perfect, was it easy to put on?

    Yes it was very easy.. Just make sure you have it lined up and put on the hinge tape and you're good to go

    I seem to remember this being covered already but can't find it - what's the S Pen like on that iloome Flex? Is it anywhere near as silky smooth as the oleophobic glass protectors?

    Yesterday I had some time on my hands, and I had been meaning to do this test, so I did it..

    I have the SuperShieldz Tempered Glass Screen protector on my Note 4. I like the fit and the looks, but I wanted to see how it looked up against a NAKED Note 4.. I went to a BestBuy store.

    I know I got old eyes, but my Note 4 looked brighter and just as sharp as the Naked Note 4. I went into the setting to see where the brightness level was on the naked Note 4, and it was set all the way, just like mine. That assured me that nothing I can see where the temp glass screen is taking anything away from the resolution. Will do it a couple more times, and get some other eyes involved too.

    There seems to be a somewhat common misconception that the iloome 8h Flexmate is not glass. It is glass ergo the 8h rating.
