    People who bought the Zagg Glass protectors directly from Verizon corporate stores are not reporting any halos.... I suspect Best Buy's version is slightly different and causes halo.
    Lol u have not seen my posts about the halo effect. They put 2 on there with the same results.

    Installed the Zagg Glass today on my black Note 5 and I'm happy to report that I have no halos at all. I did have some stubborn bubbles that took a while to press out but everything came out prefect (except my sore thumbs). The is the Zagg Glass I purchased from Verizon and is the Full Screen Coverage Version.
    Here are a few pictures.

    You guys don't like the blue tint. Does it give the screen a bad look. And is it the one for UV protection outdoors

    I suspect that Zagg has quality control problems. I bought one from my local Verizon corporate store. It went on my 1st Note 5 perfectly with no bubbles/halos. I've put on at least 25 tempered glass screen protector over the last few years, so I think I know what I'm doing.

    The next day, I ordered one from VerizonWireless.com because I also had other accessories on order. They arrived overnight. I put it on my 2nd Note 5. Halo city. I shipped it back to Verizon and received a credit 6 days later.

    I then went to my local Verizon corporate store again.(didn't go sooner because they are on the other side of town) After paying for it(billed to my VZW acct), I took it out and used their counter to put it on. It went on perfectly with no halo. There was one bubble that I couldn't press out, so I lifted it up, used tape to get rid of a speck of dust, reapplied it... perfect. No halo and no bubbles.

    Fast forward to this morning. I went to the Verizon store again to pick up a 3rd Note 5 because today is the last day of the $400 promo. I got another Zagg protector. Again, I put it on in the store. This time... it has halo all around. The manager took out another one and tried to put it on. Nope, still halos. He tried 3 more times and basically gave up. I asked him to open another one and let me try it. The last one went on perfectly!

    One thing I did notice is that none of the 5 Zagg screen protectors that were used at the VZW store today had the exact same shape. This is especially so around the top and bottom, near the home button cutout. They were clearly cut differently.

    Yea one of the reps at best buy said the same thing about the Zagg glass screen protectors being different sizes. He said it was hit or miss with putting them on. U can't tell until u put it on. My thing with Verizon is that they have their own glass protector. Why aren't they selling that one? I have never had an issue with the Verizon one on any of my other phones.

    you mean the Verizon-braded tempered glass screen protector? the VZW corporate store manager advised me against trying that one.. he said the return rate on that one was nearly 100%.

    You did a great job BTW! But why does everyone think the Note 5 and other S6 look great! It looks just like my Note 3 black from the front! And is losing the microSD and removable battery really worth the same phone?! 75% of us put our phones in cases so who cares what it looks like?! Samsung is NOT Apple where they cut out the back in a circle on cases to show the Apple logo!
    The back of the Note 5 and curved design look a million times better than fake leather and the plastic bumps meant to look like stitching on the Note 3. Also, depending on the lighting, the color of the Note 5 looks more blue at times. But since you don't care what it looks like, we'll move on.

    You want to call it the same phone but aside from improved internals the Note 5 also has better battery life, better screen, better camera, better SPen features, and fast charging.

    What is the purpose of the UV protection on the best Buy version of the Zagg Glass? I understand it for sunglasses and cameras but what does it do for a phone? Does it provide a clearer display in the sun?

    I'm using this now but like everyone else I have the halo. I really only see it when the screen is off and have to look hard for it when the screen is on. If the UV will be a lot better in the sun, maybe I'll live with the halo.

    For all of you that switched, have you noticed any difference? (besides no halo)

    or perhaps it blocks the UV light coming out of the screen so your eyes won't be bombarded with UV light? (like those computer reading glasses)

    Do you have the "part number" or bar-code for this - there appears to be multiple Zagg Invisible Shield tempered glass protective covers.

    I need to update what I said. All three of the Zagg Glass protector that I bought directly from Verizon corporate stored were 99% halo free in the beginning... unfortunately, it's been 1 to 2 weeks since I installed them. Now ALL of them have halos all around. I will be returning two of them to the Verizon store this afternoon. (the 1st one is beyond the 14-day return period already)

    Will be trying the Spigen PET film protector that everyone seems to be raving about on XDA and AndroidCentral... guess there really is no hope for the 100% halo-free glass protector for the Note 5 at this point. I should know, I have tried 11 different brands on my 3 Note 5 phones.... thought the Zagg was perfect, until the halo appeared much later.

    I can vouch for the Zagg Invisible Shield "glass" from a Verizon Corporate Store in my area. This is not the "hd" glass. Non corporate Verizon stores in my area sent me to Best Buy.

    I have 2 near perfect installs. No Halo. Adhesive on the edge (not Halo, very short gap in adhesive) was thin for a very short stretch (1-2mm) on each install in different areas. Rectified with a hair blower. The area in question is so minor I would have to do a close inspection to see if the adhesive doesn't stay stuck. Lifetime warranty if it doesn't.

    Damn! At least u got a couple of weeks! On my phone the halo effect appeared the very next day after it was applied. When I ordered my cases from Amazon I also ordered a tempered glass screen protector. It was only $4.99. It arrives on Thursday. Hopefully I have better luck with this one!

    Hey that looks great! I've had zero luck with a tempered glass screen protector for the note 5. Is it some kind of a manufacturer screw up?? If an iPhone 6 can have a tempered glass without halo (and those have a more curved screen) then there's no reason why it shouldn't work on note 5. It's driving me crazy. I have a zagg coming to my house soon that I ordered online from verizon. I'm really hoping for the best. Any tips to get results like yours?? I would hate to have this fail again for the third time and the hassle of returns. Thanks.
