    Just installed a JetTech glass protector. I am very picky about installation of protectors and I always get them perfect - sometimes with extensive use of double-sided tape to fix any tiny particles. This one lined-up perfectly first time, absolutely no dust underneath.

    This protector has the halo issue, even when meticulously installed. Since other brands don't halo, and we are all working on the same shaped display, am I to assume that the non-halo protectors are cut a tad smaller? Or they have better adhesive to hold the protector to the surface as it begins to curve at it's edge?

    Just wondering...

    I FINALLY got my Supershieldz Friday afternoon- they showed up in stock last Friday at Supershieldz- I ordered through Amazon.
    I cleaned up and applied- my first time working w tempered glass. had a bubble in middle- and much as I tried to force to side- it wasn't gonna happen. However by this morning- it disappeared. I just have a couple of pinhole bubbles elsewhere.

    Anyway- I am not too happy with it- because of its size. Its actually a hair narrow, and not only does it not cover the full glass- it does not cover the full DISPLAY. I centered it really well- as it has the same width of no coverage on either side. You can look at it from overhead- and see additional display wider than the coverage.

    I've been reading online comments and I've heard that the reason these glass screen protectors cannot go edge to edge on the Note 5 is because the screen is curved on the very edges? It it's supposed to be very little, I looked I can't see it but then again I'm blind.

    Thanks Dude.
    On close inspection of the packaging, it shows that this protector has the same margin from the edge all the way around the protector. On mine, there's plenty of margin top/bottom, but the sides are cut closer to the edge/curve, hence the halo.

    Can you take a look at yours and let us know?

    Skinomi has been my favorite so far but I haven't liked how any of them have fit the phone.

    I actually look mine off. It was about as wide as the display and came up short top and bottom which is why there was no halo. The curved screen requires a glass screen protector that is much smaller than the screen. Which is why I went back to a plastic one. It covers almost the entire screen with no halo.

    My personal take as of now is that tempered glass protectors will have halo, for most people, even if perfectly installed. I say this b/c every time I see a poster say "no halo on THIS protector!", I look up the product on Amazon and too many people are complaining about halo. I can't find any consensus whatsoever on these products. I am now planning on getting an old school film protector that won't have an issue with the curve on the display edges.

    With my current glass protector, JETech, there's 100% halo on left and right sides. It not only looks bad, but since the glass is standing up off the display, it makes that edge unresponsive to finger/stylus touch. So it's not just ugly, it's annoying.

    Happy to hear that this worked out for you. If you look at the reviews on Amazon, there's plenty of evidence that others have the halo issue. Maybe there are differences in the cut?

    In looking at all of these, I am starting to think that all of these screen protectors are made by like 3 manufacturers and just sold by everybody.

    I just came back from Best Buy and a sales person tried to install the Zagg. He tried 2 times with 2 different ones and they both had the halo issue.

    Not perfect but,good enough for me. Btw, sorry picture quality isn't the best, it was taken with a phone that I paid $25 (no contract) for. This is the skinomi /iq shield. Both are identical other than branding.

    I got this and terrible in several ways:

    1. No installation video for the Note 5. Not even a selection to choose on the ismooth website for the Note 5.

    2. Customer Service is horrible. They include a card with the product that touts how they want you to be 100% satisfied, so when I called them that there was no installation video, I got their voicemail and they never called me back.

    3. Dust bubbles are inevitable no matter how hard you try.

    4. MAJOR halo around the edges.

    Now granted, had their been an actual installation video #3 and 4 could be moot.

    But overall I'm chalking this up as a $16 loss as I will look for another brand.

    I got a Bodyguardz Screengaurdz Pure from my local AT&T store when I bought my Note 5. Stupid expensive, but SUPER nice, zero halo and lifetime warranty. Very easy install. I would definitely recommend it. Probably find it a lot cheaper than I paid online somewhere.
