    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.

    Does the Best Buy one also state full screen coverage on the box?

    You definitely have a halo, but it's also not even close to being installed correctly, which can cause the halo.

    I have the Best Buy Zagg HD glass and it has the blue tint. I bought an amFilm but haven't installed it yet. Maybe the regular glass one does not have the blue tint.

    Really? Not installed correctly? The instructions on the box were terrible, I could not even find a YouTube video on it.

    Believe it or not these are the only instructions on the box with the smallest font ever!!!






    How do I fix it?

    You are going to need a new glass protector. I don't believe you will be able to fix this one.
    I have installed a ton of tempered glass protectors and I like the Zagg's the best. They have the little tabs on the protector to help align it during the installation. Try the Zagg, it comes with a lifetime guarantee.

    Do you use this in addition to a case or just the Tempered Glass Screen Protector?

    Yes, It will go straight into an Otterbox Commuter. I'm letting it sit overnight before putting it in the case. I worry about the cases pulling up the protector as it's so close to the edges.

    Carlo, I heard that if you go into Best Buy and apply for a Credit Card that you will get 50% off an item.
    Even it the application is denied. You might be able to get the Zagg pretty cheap this way. Just get the clear one and not the one with the UV Blue tint light deal.

    Another Best Buy discount if to go by the Post Office and ask for a couple change of address packs. They have a Best Buy 10% off any one item in the store in these movers packs.

    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!

    Get the movers coupon for 10% but don't go applying for credit cards just to save $20 on a screen protector...

    UPDATE: The Otterbox commuter case causes the Zagg glass to peel up in certain areas when you put on the outer shell.
    I guess this glass is not "Case Friendly" like past Zagg glass offerings.
    I have a UAG case coming but until then I can't use the commuter. I hope the UAG has a thinner lip?
    Just a heads up as I don't know if this "Full Screen Coverage" glass will play nice with any case.

    This sucks.

    My Zagg works great with the UAG. I have the Best Buy Zagg and it has that blue tint. It's labeled as "HD glass". I might have to hit Verizon to get that one as I heard it does not have a blue tint.

    I think a lot of the reason is because of the teeny tiny side bezel on the new Note 5... With a larger bezel, the screen protector doesn't rub against the screen protector... Do you think this is what is causing the peeling up is the excessive contact on the sides?

    I think it is going to be difficult to find a case with minimal "lip" so that it doesn't' come in contact and push the sides of the protector... I know my current Ringke SLIM will do just fine with a tempered glass protector... My case has no lip at all...

    For what it's worth the Zaggs are great but their QC is horrific. I recently left best buy and have installed hundreds of these. You can get it perfect and there is still a chance it will halo or develop bubbles in the center. I believe this is due to the difficulty of applying the adhesive to the backside of the glass in a flat and uniform manner. The next issue is the stamping process which likely deforms the adhesive around the edges when the die cuts the screen. Thicker deposits or low spots in the adhesive will cause the bubbling. Bubble lines make it apparent where the adhesive sheets meet. This was very common for iphone 6 screens where we would see lines running vertically and horizontally and intersecting in the upper right and corner of the face. I'd say around 30-40% of the screens we receive have these problem for all models. We sent back an insane amount for write-off. Some haloing can be removed by just working at it for a few days. Rub it enough and the adhesive will flatten out and eventually stick. Some screens are a lost cause.

    tldr:
    It's not wise to buy a zagg without having a retailer install it for you. Don't pay for anything that isn't perfect because it might take a couple shields to get one that's not defective. Pray you get an installer that actually knows what they're doing.

    The problem I had with the Commuter was up by the top speaker. Took a nail file and sanded the silicone lip of the Commuter and it fits perfect now.

    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.
