    I bought ZAGG Glass from Best Buy when I first got my Note at launch and it does NOT cover the front camera and it sits perfectly with no bubbles or halo effect. My iPhone 6 Plus, however, does have a halo effect from ZAGG Glass, but my Note 5 does not.

    I've seen the same protector installed on 2 different phones & 1 had the halo effect, the other did not. If you've already come across this issue here's a video on How to fix (or significantly reduce) "Halo" effect/Ghost Ring on glass screen protectors. It works even better if you use a blow dryer/ heat gun

    I believe that Zagg is redesigning the glass for the Note 5. The glass on my wife's Note 5 was peeling up from her changing cases every other day. Called Zagg and they are sending a replacement but it will not ship until November. They said the glass was being reworked and would not ship until Nov. We will see.

    I use Verizon's and make them put it on. If there's a problem, they get to do it again until it's perfect.

    I'm sick of it. I have gone through so many brands now that I just left it as is. Some are worse than others. Its the slight curve of the screen edge that causes it. Unless they shape the protectors with a curve to match it will be a problem. Only solution to to make them smaller and you are stuck with a protector that looks small.

    I have given up as well! I have just come to the conclusion that there is not a good tempered glass screen protector for the Note 5!

    there are other screen protectors that aren't made of tempered glass that fit well, have great clarity, and is smooth in response to the S-pen.

    Yootech.

    I only paid about 8 dollars for it on Amazon and I had no issues with it. I tried a skinomi tempered glass and that gave me halo/bubbles galore.

    Seriously, get the yootech one from amazon. A lot cheaper and in my experience, no issues.

    Which tempered glass is good for Galaxy Note 5 without Halo or Bubble effects?-uploadfromtaptalk1445735386325.jpg

    I took a look and there is some slight bits where it looks like it didn't fit 100% flat but you have to look for it.

    It isn't bad as other screen protectors I've seen.

    Not bad! Will using a case on it affect it? Like make it peel up and bubble.

    Nope! I have the verus high pro shield and it doesn't affect it at all. There is a tiny gap between the edge of the tempered glass and the tpu part of the case.

    This was the last glass screen protector I had bought from Amazon. It was $4.99. It was just as bad as the Zagg one's from Verizon and Best buy. I guess I will try the yootech protector, but it will be the last if it doesn't work.

    I hope it works for you. I'm sure you know that the note 5 has the rounded edges which makes any screen protector difficult.

    However, take your time and line it up using the "hinge method" and use tape to get rid of any dust particles before applying it. I use canned air as well.

    Look up videos on the hinge method. I use that method every time and I've had great results. My siblings and close friends always ask me to do theirs.

    I bought this one from amazon and it has no halos. Come to think of it all the cheap ones I've bought have no halos. I'm very meticulous when I install stuff on my phones though.

    i notice most tempered glass screen protector does not fully cover the edges. most tempered glass available in the market has halo or bubble effects throughout the edges.
    Got this fancy x-one ultimate from these guys. Pretty good. Bought it from a shop though. Not through the site
