    maj71303 posted this picture of his new Note 4 with a tempered glass screen protector.

    It has a halo effect around the edges because of the Note 4's rounded glass.

    Will all tempered glass screen protectors produce this halo effect?

    I'm thinking this is why the Spigen GlasTr for the Note 4 has vanished all of a sudden.

    Please post what tempered glass you are using and if has this halo effect problem or not?

    That's because the edges are not sticking. They're hovering above the rounded edges of the screen. All 2.5D screens have this issue with tempered glass protectors. Those edges will eventually become full of dust, since the sticky part isn't against the screen.

    I purchased 6 glass screen protectors. 2 from invellop (they didnt even cover the usable part of the screen completely and issued me a refund). 2 from orzly (halo effect). 2 from tech armor (Halo affect but they demand to see a picture of it and I tell them that my only camera is the Note 4 so i cant provide one). I even bought regualr PET fil screen protectors. None fit at tall.

    I may as well go ahead and return the one I bought. I won't have the N4 till Monday (vacation), but I highly doubt mine will be ok and every one else's is the same.

    Will there be a tempered glass protector that will work perfect on the Note 4 in the near future?

    I doubt it. They would need to figure out how to make one that curves around the edges (which would be extremely fragile and difficult to install). 2.5D glass has been popular on phones since the Galaxy S3 and they haven't figured it out yet.

    How'd the manufacturers not know this would happen? Just gonna get zagg invisibleshield for now until this gets worked out. It usually wraps around the edges

    I've had this problem with all the rounded edge phones and it still works great just looks funny. I've never had dust accumulate under the edges though. The only way the manufacturers can make it better is to cut the protector down to the usable screen size but it just looks bad then. The rounded edges is out of the question as it's to hard to manufacture.

    I would rather have the halo knowing the screen is covered all the way than to have it narrow cut to just fit the usable screen area. But if you don't like it I think the plastic film protectors is the way to go. Me I'm going to stick with my halo Glass.

    I've had the tempered glass protectors on my Note 2, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 and have never seen this problem.
    I guess the screen is different on the Note 4.

    IMO, this is happening with a lot of temp glass screen protectors. IMO, in the rush to get them out quickly, IMO, they weren't made correctly. Example, I had a cheap clone temp glass on my Note 3, it was perfect. In fact, I had a $35 Spigen on my Note 3 at first, and that didn't work out, returned it for a refund.

    With the Note 4, one of the temp glass protector I ordered, the maker stopped shipping, and recalled it due to finding out that it was flaws in the fit. I thanked them for that, and I am waiting for the retooled one to be shipped. However, the Nillkin one that I do have, has a real sloppy fit. It is too small, and it covers up the facing camera..No big deal, either they will give me a refund of ship me a corrected one.

    Same with the case I got on my Note 4, it is just like the one I had on the my Note 3, but the fit is awful.
    However, not complaining about the bad fitting glass and case, they were here on day 1 to go on my Note 4 and keep it protected, that was the purpose of getting them. When I get the right ones, these will get thrown in the trash can..

    If you read through this thread a bit, it sounds like iloome has confirmed that their screen protectors are curved at the edges and should not show this halo effect.

    Well now to cancel my order. I do not want to deal with that. I would rather have scratches on my screen than deal with that crazy business.

    Oh wow it does .... I guess for this those curves kind of suck ... They feel sexy though.

    I wonder if they plan to fix it? Hm.... @felloffthetruck -- Did you try asking them about it?

    and i honestly can't beleive some companies saying "oh we just leanred it's a curved screen."

    REALLY? the 2.5d screen tech has been mentioned since november. are these companies blindly manufactoring product without even a dummy device to base it off of? crazy.

    When they say they're "fixing" it, I will bet you that they are just making it smaller so it only covers the flat part.
