    Yup phone looks the same way as the day the Zagg glass protector was placed on, still has Halo and at the sides I see some rainbow colors. I'm bringing this back tomorrow to be re-done. I'm hoping its just the best buy employee was bad at it and not the brand. Zagg was usually one of my favorite due to their lifetime warranty.

    The problem is best buys custom Zagg version, I have been through this before. Save yourself some time and return it, then go to an att and get the same glass, it will be perfect.

    It's something about the blue UV thing best buys version has.

    I took my BB "blue" Zagg glass back as the blue tint was driving my eyes nuts...especially out in the sunlight.

    Purchased the Zagg glass minus the super duper UV protective BB blue and what a difference...perfect

    Zero halo......but I had no halo on my BB one either.

    The Halo effect is because of the 2D Glass. If you go beyond the display area you'll notice it lifts. Zagg Glass and others should fit well because the main companies have cut the glass to fit in the flat area and stop before the curve. However, given that the glass does curve, even being slightly off on any side can cause a Halo effect. This is why there are mixed results and its not due to a manufacturing defect on the Zagg Glass.

    *I had to deal with this same issue on the Droid Turbo. The only Tempered Glass that fit properly, when applied dead center, was the Verizon Tempered Glass. Every other brand had issues. Again, its all about the alignment for these new phones and its annoying. I want my flat glass back or give me a Sapphire display.

    If you are slightly off, shouldn't the halo only appear on one side? I tried 4 different glass covers from Amazon and every single one had halo around all sides of the phone.

    I had this issue with my Note 4 but found the Icarez worked perfectly (then I found their 0.15mm version and it was even better!)

    Not necessarily because glass isn't flexible. It could go either way from my experience. I believe it depends how off it really is and where its off. For example, is it tilted slightly on the upper right which could cause the Halo to extend?

    Also, remember not every brand cuts their glass to the same dimensions. For example, on the Turbo, the XtremeGuard was a horrible fit and MIME was decent but still a bit too big. Verizon Tempered Glass was cut the shortest and fit with no Halo if fitted properly.

    I'll have to go to ATT and see if their version is different from the one I bought at Best Buy. If its based on cuts I think the one at best buy is probably too large that the halo effect occurs on all sides. I just wouldn't want to waste their time at Best Buy if its something that cannot be fixed with their version of the Zagg product.

    Zagg would most likely not cut the protector differently. The Blue Filter should be the only difference because Zagg knew to cut the Glass short after the Note 4 issues.

    Does the BB Zagg use blue screen tech? This was an issue with the Zagg best buy sold for the s6, it would halo.

    Best buy actually has their own version of the Zagg glass.

    The ATT Zagg is flawless though.

    Best tip given. I returned Besy Buy's UV version for the Zagg Glass Protector and got the ATT non UV Zagg version. It fits perfectly. I have no Halo issues. Greatly appreciated!

    I'm unsure why but the two cuts are definitely different. It seems like the Best Buy version was slightly longer as I had Halos on all four sides. Now with the ATT version I have no halos and it fits perfectly on the glass. Also no more of that rainbow color thing on the sides.

    That's strange and unexplainable. Good to know though!

    I'm using Zagg and its perfect. I had a bubble but it disappeared after 24 hours. I'm so mad at myself cause it was $40 freaking dollars. I usually buy Verizon ones or from Amazon but couldn't wait.

    The Zagg Glass doesn't go all the way to the edges due to the curved glass. Even on the S5, which went further since it was flat, left plenty of room for most cases. You'll be fine on most cases but not all.

    I went today and exchanged a tech21 case for an otterbox commuter, yeah the case messes up the edges of the zagg screen.

    I had verizon put the zagg on friday when i got the phone, is it something you can take off and reapply yourself?

    I'm actually a Best Buy Mobile employee, I just purchased my Note 5 a couple days ago and installed (and yes I install many of these a day) the Zagg HD tempered glass on my phone. No halo effect EXCEPT on the very bottom right corner that I couldn't get to stick down. Other than that, the screen protector looks flawless.

    Did it have the UV on your Zagg?
