    Unsure it looks like normal. Here is a picture: Attachment 192323

    Not really sure if I should get it re-done or if its pointless lol.
    That's what Best Buy is pusing aND i wasnt too impessed with it because it took the guy 2 times to put it on and both times having bubbles in it, with the claim it needs about 24 hours before the air bubbles workout.

    So I seen a coworker's Note 5 done at T-Mobile which looked way better and covered the whole screen completely compared to this brand.

    Besides selling that brand, they also sell "Pure Gear", Pure Tek, roll on kit that is a flexible glass screen protector.

    I always hear this "24 hour" stuff and I say its non sense. I have applied 15+ Glass protectors on for myself and friends and I have never had a single bubble that couldn't be pressed out within seconds.

    I purchased the one show below from Amazon, for $7.95

    Comes with cleaning cloth, alcohol wipe and tape to remove dust.

    NO halo effect, and seems to be working perfectly! No bluish tint, either.

    Check out this video review of this product... it's pretty impressive!

    I ordered this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...cUvbUpU4644105

    It does have a halo effect and it was delayed 2 days longer than its stated when I purchased it on Prime Shipping.

    I have a zagg. There is halo and this blue tint sucks
    I switched to the Zagg glass screen protector and the blue halo tint ruins the look of the phone.

    I think it makes a difference what color phone you have. I have a black one and had a Zagg replaced 3 times and still has a halo. No luck so far!

    I am using the one Verizon sells. I told the Verizon rep I was really particular about it and he got it perfectly centered and removed lint as well. This halo effect you talk about isn't happening on my phone EXCEPT slightly at the top but I never even notice it unless I read sites like this and makes me look.

    I use ume tempered glass, it has a bit halo near the home and back button. But it's much better than note 4

    My halo has actually gone away some. It's now only in the lower left corner, while before it was every corner plus around the home button. They had given me a 50% refund so I'm happy enough until I scratch it up

    For me, I have learned through the months no need to put any screen protectors on as long as I don't drop the phone. The type of gorilla glass is quite antiscratch resistant as long as I don't put my keys in the same pocket. I have used many types of tempered glass screen protector, they eventually fall off or have microscopic scratches.

    Sure... So long as you don't ever drop the phone or use something hard to scratch the screen then you will be fine. Similarly, you wouldn't need a case either.

    For those of us who want to help protect against accidents, a tempered glass screen protector expecially at a buck is a good and low cost investment

    I disagree. I went without a screen protector on my Turbo and it got a few microscratches. Granted, they weren't noticable unless in direct lighting but it still happened. I always kept my phone in am empty pocket while my keys and wallet were in the other one.

    I guess it's not a necessity but I for one despise microscratches. Granted, I think my Tempered Glass has the same kind and I don't notice them during daily use. I don't mind though since I have the option to pull it off and apply a new one if necessary.

    On a side note, I've never had one fall off. What brands had this issue?

    Depends on how careful you are. I dropped my note 2 a few days after I got it and it had a scratch that caused a rainbow glare out of it. After that I always used a screen protector.

    No doubt. I always use a screen protector too and I'm very careful. Never drop my phone or let keys touch it.

    For me, screen protectors are for antiscratches, not for handling drops; cases are for drops and antiscratches. There are flip/flap cases that are good without the need of a screen protector. I always have had cases to prepare for drops, not screen protectors. The appreciation and enjoyment without any screen protectors on the display are unparallel.

    Of course, to each his own. But a quality tempered glass screen protector still gives me about 95% enjoyment which is good enough for me.

    A plastic screen protector would work to avoid scratches but doesn't feel nearly as nice

    The glass Zagg I had installed on my phone had the worst blue tint ever. I had to return it.
