    I need one but I don't want one that causes halos. I use the Spigen Neo hybrid case. Any thoughts?

    This is the one I got. Had a halo at first but I just went down both edges and pressed in down for 15-30 seconds(2-3 points on each side) and its been perfect for 2-3 months.

    The rep at best buy said their zagg screen shields always halos. He said it's because of the beveled glad on the note 5

    Then he doesn't know how to apply it correctly. My first one had no halo at all and was applied perfectly centered. I didn't do as good of a job on the replacement and thus have a halo. It's all in how well you venter it during application.

    Well you got lucky lol because I went through 5 different Zagg glass protectors with 5 different bestbuy reps! All ending with the same results.

    So... The answer is obviously to not let Best Buy put it on. Hahaha.

    I had a massive Halo on the left side with Zagg HD Glass. Called Zagg and they sent me 2 no charge at all to Canada. I bought at BestBuy Canada and emailed them the day i put it on with a pic and the receipt. Put the new one on and was perfect. No halo anywhere

    I've done mine myself... No issues. They do them too fast without concentrating in the stores.

    I put on a Zagg Invisasheild myself and have no halos. It's actually the first screen protector I've ever kept on a phone. It installed so well. Ever other one I've tried always would get bubbles no matter how careful I was. I also like Zagg's lifetime guarantee. My son broke the one on his S6 and they sent out a replacement that day.

    Yea in the stores they're always in a hurry plus never clean the screen off that good as well. I'd rather do it myself. Also tempered glass is much cheaper off amazon.

    So, what is the current feeling? Tempered Glass or just film? There is also a K-Guards®.PREMIUM on Amazon. Has anyone heard of it?

    I really appreciate all the info everyone has supplied. Ultimately I always trusted Zagg, but installing glass isn't the same as installing film, and after all of the comments about halos and poor installations at Best Buy (where I was going to get mine installed) I decided to pass. After many grueling hours of research I decided on the Bodyguardz Screen Guards Pure. It probably isn't any better than the other glass guards out there, but they had all the right words in their ad so it seemed a cut above the other protectors. The biggest reason for me getting that one is that there website claims that it comes preinstalled in an Express Align tray. You just remove the protective cover and place your phone in the tray (after cleaning of course) and you get a perfect alignment. Funny thing though, when I received my protector it wasn't in any tray, just a paper sleeve. I contacted the company who confirmed that it should have been in the Express Align tray, so they sent me a replacement at no charge. They didn't even ask for the old one back. Unfortunately when my replacement arrived it was exactly the same as the first one I got. I guess I'll have to contact Bodyguardz again. This protector was not only one of the more expensive ones, their replacement policy if it breaks is only a 20% discount. Much more expensive than Zagg, who isn't cheap to begin with. I'm starting to think that I should just try to get my money back and go with Skinomi or Spigen.

    Wow! All I can say is perfect! Thanks so much for your reply. I have a Tech 21 Tactical case on mine. Since this protector is edge to edge I wonder if it will work with it. I'll have to check it out. I sure hope it works.
