    FWIW Zerolemon's N4 tempered glass screen protector is now available, still no batteries or cases though.

    sorry, but that looks like a$$.... why can't they make it go to the edge of the screen and go around the home button and earpiece screen?? I want to get one but I want it to look almost invisible..
    don't want it to like I just stuck some piece of glass over my phone.

    I just installed the Zagg Glass Invisible shield. If you're looking for them, best buy has a lot of them. It went fairly well, but this is one you'll have to be very patient with. I was smoothing out bubbles for at least ten minutes. It looks pretty good now though.
    Any pictures? I have the same but having the halo

    It's basic geometry. Blame samsung for using the 2.5D cut, you can't make a fully fitted tempered glass protector without it being extremely expensive (relative) and it being extremely difficult to install since it wouldn't fit even if it's just .001mm off.

    Don't use tempered glass or wait for iloome to release the curveprotect version which is just a silicone covering for the sides, it's not pure glass.

    You will never find a tempered glass protector for this phone that is made of pure glass and have it cover the entire front of the phone like you'd find for the Note 3 (which has a flat screen).

    That's a clever idea that iLoom is coming up with. As long as it works properly but I imagine perfect alignment will be key.

    I agree with that Eclipse....iloome does have a worthwhile concept worth pursuing I think. I suspect you are talking about their Flex. But they do also claim to be working on a Tempered Glass that will cover to the edges for the N4. The only other one I am anticipating being worth looking at is the Corning and that won't be out till mid-Dec. You are also correct ( at least I think so) that none of them will be inexpensive as screen protectors go.

    The illoome has a couple of things going for it with that Flex...it is flexible....easy to get on and off...I think it is a really good protector. Really interested to see what they come up with. The Corning folks have something of a built in advantage but the iloome folks have always been very clever. So I am interested to see what the Corning guys eventually come up with because they have something of an advantage over some of the other suppliers but also interested in the illoome. They usually come up with a way to do some things the others just can't seem to do. While their stuff is not inexpensive it is hardly ever the most expensive protector out there for a particular device.

    For you,

    Supershieldz Tempered Glass Screen Protector Shield for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 | eBay

    What I like about this vendor was, I had ordered back about late Sept or early Oct.. They were getting ready to ship, but stopped. Sent me a note telling me that the rounded and or/curve of the Note 4, that this one would not be a good fit, and ask did I want to wait!! Very cool. I waited. Other vendors, even HIGH END VENDORS shipped out the early ones and hence no fit.. For the price I paid, I would not have felt bad if it didn't fit!

    It seem the way to go with the Note 4 is not to cover the whole screen. Just the viewing part. Another vendor sent me one, and that didn't even have a cut out for the front facing camera. The are making a revision and going to send me a replacement. That will be my spare..
    Why is the way to go to not make it the size of the front of the phone?

    You're only speculating on the Spigen, just because it was removed doesn't mean they're revising anything. The current one already fits well - albeit not full coverage. And iloome already said that they're putting the curveprotect one on ice for the time being since they haven't been able to get it right.
    The current Spigen DOES NOT fit well. The fit is horrible. It has a very prominent halo all around. Worthless.

    Actually you also have the dreaded halo. I guess you're just not as OCD as the rest of us. I could never live with that. That's why my Spigen wasn't on my N4 longer than a couple of minutes. I took it off and will be requesting a refund. It's horrible.

    I made another one of those decisions for a temporary "hold me over" piece on Sunday. I found that ZeroLemon had a flexible glass screen protector that they are selling for the N4. Since it was not costly and because they have a great reputation in their areas of expertise I figured what the heck, nobody can find that Spigen at this point...I sure can't. Anybody ever had one of the ZeroLemon screen protectors? How did it work out for you?

    The Halo is when the screen protector is the same size as the Note 4 glass. Due to the curved glass on the Note 4, the screen protector does not stick all around the edge of the phone leaving a "halo" under the screen protector glass. He does not have the halo. Spigen just made the screen protector smaller to avoid the curve of the N4 glass. This is the best current option- until someone make a curved edge screen protector.

    Maybe manufacturers made it so it doesn't go all the way to the edges due to the fact that many will use cases that might dig into the tempered glass then causing it to POP up?

    I haven't received my N4 yet (Verizon), but have a Spigen tempered glass screen protector that I received from Amazon about a week ago. Comparing it to my N3, it's about 1/16" short lengthwise and about 3/16" short on the width. I'm thinking of returning it.

    Given that the N4 (and N3 for that matter) screen is made of glass - probably a better scratch-proof glass than the after market tempered glass screens, and the fact that my Spigen tempered glass screen on my N3 has never had any scratches on it, is it even necessary to put a screen protector on the N4??

    Any thoughts??

    I used my Note 3 for about 9 months without a screen protector. I had some fine scratches that could only be seen at an angle with the screen off. I got a warranty replacement and put a tempered screen protector on it.

    If you take care of your phone and get a case that can cover the front it is probably not necessary.
