    Actually, that isn't the case. The screen protectors are fine - granted the adhesion leaves something to be desired (I use a bit of silicone seal to fix that), but most cases push up on the screen protector - that causes the lost sensitivity and debris. Use a screen protector w/o a case, it most will be fine.

    The tempered glass needs to wrap, but the cases need to account for that.
    Actually, that is the case. What you call "fine", I call a problem. I've used them with and without a case. Still the same issue. Point being is all the same, the screen protectors are far from functional. There are still way too many problems with them for these curved screens too. It's not just the cases.

    I guess it may depend on the particular protector, as I haven't had any issues with mine.

    You didn't have any "issues" except that you had to modify it in order for it to stick right. That's exactly my point--as we shouldn't have to add silicone to make it work right. I've tried a dozen of the curved protectors and they're all the same. None of them work right out of the package. All of the screen protector manufacturers say the same thing about not being able to use adhesive on the entire screen. It's a design issue for them. But that's just the way it is.

    I guess is that if you are using that silicone to get it to stick and not lose sensitivity, that this seems to be the best solution so far. My only input would be to use a protector that is real glass and not plastic, and to use one that has adhesive along all the edges (such as the one you posted about). The ones that only have adhesive on top and bottom still allow dust to trap underneath.

    I did the silicone seal as "insurance" - not sure I had to do it. I used an extremely small amount of silicone seal (I literally used a pin-head to put it on) - the black top & bottom allowed me to "hide" it on each of the 4 corners.

    I obviously will remove it when I exchange my phone, but for now, it's been great.

    Well so far you're the only one with a viable option. It sounds like even just that small amount can make a difference. What I am noticing is that the curved screen protectors just have a very small gap between the screen and the protector, enough to create a lost in sensitivity.

    I can't say if the particular screen protector I used is any better than the rest - I suspect they're all made in the same factory in China. But, I can tell you that I've had no issues with touch-sensitivity - from typing to action-games. I can also tell you that there IS a very small space between the protector-glass and the actual screen. The short video below shows the reflection moving as I push on the screen protector. But, it doesn't seem to affect it.

    Edit... BTW, screen savers don't actually have to touch the screen - capacitive touchscreen displays rely on the electrical charge in your finger - not in physical touch.

    edit 2: After replacing my first Note 7, I purchased an identical screen protector because I didn't think I'd be able to re-use it. But it had touch issues. I ended up putting back my first one back on, and it's fine. The moral of the story is that manufacturing tolerances aren't very good, and it may be pure "luck" that any one protector works as advertised.

    Considering the horrible reviews for the 3D Max Screenmate for other curved-screen phones, it's unlikely it will be any different.

    6 days with the Verizon glass curved screen protector and still think it is the best compromise to date.
    Still no sensitivity issues.
    Yes, a minor amount of rainbow IF I LOOK FOR IT but certainly not visible during normal use.
    No clicking. No lifting sides / corners
    No dust under the screen.
    No issues with three different cases including the perfect TPU case that I have had on every Note and phone I have ever owned from Diztronic.

    My wife and I both are using this glass protector on our Note 7's and she is pickier than I am and has no issues either.
    Why do you think it gets terrible reviews on the Verizon web site? 2/5, 31 reviews & 27 are 1 star reviews!

    Because people are OCD and want / expect perfection....which I would be fine with if it existed. Give me the same type of product I had from Zagg with their glass on all of my other Notes and I would be thrilled. Give me this which functions fine but not perfect and I am very happy having my GG% screen protected.

    Do you honestly believe only 31 people have bought these in the USA? They are sold out everywhere in my area. Only those ******** are posting which is typical. Not perfect by a long shot but it works.

    I can't buy them all & try them out. So, must go by reviews rather than by a couple of people's posts in this this forum.
    This is my 1st curved screen phone. I have a great case I posted about earlier & would really like to get a nice screen protector, preferably glass so no bubbles. I think I would try the JeTech TG one if not for the black color @ top & bottom. It got 3.5/5 with 91 reviews so, probably the best reviewed one I've yet seen. I have a Blue phone & my case is black so if I get SP with black color, I essentially have a black phone.

    When I get my replacement Note 7, I will leave the factory, cheap, plastic protector on till I can find a good one to try.

    I currently have the Verizon screen protector with a Ringke slim case and am happy with the way they fit together. No, the screen protector is not perfect. I can see that dust definitely gathers at the edge where the protector ends and the case begins. However, I have had the combination on my Note 7 since the 19th of August and no dust has traveled further under the screen and I have had no touch sensitivity problems at all. It may not be the prettiest screen protector but has certainly stayed on just fine and I am confident that it will continue to stay put.
    Perhaps my success in the installation is that I used my eyeglass cleaner to clean my screen before installation rather than the "kit" that was included?

    For the curved screen on my Note 7 before and now my interim S7 Edge, I've resigned myself that a traditional screen film leads to scratch protection and much less frustration than having a glass screen protector that doesn't really fit and invites dust and dirt, at best.

    Don't count on it surviving a fall. Mine fell from less than 4 feet and the screen shattered. I have a S6 Edge and never had a screen protector (there weren't any when it came out) and dropped it more than once without incident. Also, the back of my Note 7 scratched in the first week! I will still trade in my Note 7 for a new one (loved it), but will have a case (very slippery) and screen protector.

    So until a good tempered glass screen protector comes out, I installed a PET film one so I don't get any scratches. I found in order it to fit with a case, you have to trim 2mm off all the edges. It's no where near as good looking as tempered glass, but at least I should be protected from scratches.

    I came into this thread to read about that wonderful screen protector that everyone was bragging about. No luck from anyone it seems.

    My note 4 use to have this problem. But after about a month they got them working. Claimed Samsung didn't send them the right size demo to mode their protectors from. Doesn't seem like we will be so lucky.

    I wonder why companies keep selling them when they clearly aren't working? Do they enjoy the one star reviews and processing refunds? I tried luvit. At the time it had some 5 star reviews. Waited over a week for it to ship at a 20 dollar price point. I just knew this one was going to work. It didn't work. The first reviews must have been fake. They went from 4 stars to 1 shortly after shipping. Should have changed their name to hateit.

    Most reviews on Amazon are "questionable". I've learned to ONLY read the "verified purchase" reviews - these are ones where people have purchased from Amazon. The difference in the reviews is substantial between the verified and non-verified reviews.

    Does anyone know much about the Gorilla Glass 5 as far as being scratch resistant? Sometimes I don't have the option of being on speaker and I might have earrings on and have to hold the phone to my ear. I refuse to put those filmy plastic protectors on my expensive beautiful screen.

    As for the glass protectors, the glass on the phones surly must be stronger than the glass protectors. I have often thought it was a ploy to sell the glass by sales people saying the glass has saved numerous phones from shattering. I have cracked more than one glass protector and I wonder if the actual glass on the screen would have cracked if the protector had not been on it. I never cracked any of my other screens without glass protectors and the only glass I have used is on the Note 4. I have, however, dropped the Note 4 more than any other phone, I think because of its size. As I got used to it, I dropped it less.

    What do you think?
    it's more prone to scratches but considerably more durable

    Are there any tempered glass protectors out there that only cover the flat portion of the screen? I have the thick plastic one on that came with the phone and since I don't use the edge panel much, having an edge right at the start of the curved screen doesn't bother me.

    Oops, just saw this in another thread: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KV59FHM?psc=1
