    Honestly, I gave up on the tempered glass screen protector once Samsung stuck with the curved screens...they just don't fit right. And the Note 7 is glass front and back, I'm sorry, but you need a decent case. I'm extremely pleased with my Combo, a Zagg HD Clear InvisibleShield as the screen protector (the plastic film) and a TECH 21 EVO TACTICAL XT case. Get the Zagg HD installed, let it dry for 24 hours, slip the phone into the inner black plastic liner of the EVO XT (take the 2 pieces of the XT case apart first!), then slip the phone installed in the black liner back into the larger case. Pull the edges of the case carefully around your Note 7. It's perfect! Your Zagg will lay flat and your Note 7 is in a very protective, attractive case...much more aesthetically pleasing than an Otterbox Defender.Note 7 Tempered Glass Screen Protector-20160822_173453.jpg

    Is the back protected with a protector because if not, chances are that dust and particulate matter is going to migrate and cause all sorts of abrasions and scratches.

    Is it a case where one part fits over another part, or is it a case that comes together as two pieces? I don't use cases that come together as two pieces anymore. A while back, I had one of those, and as soon as I dropped that case it came apart and my phone skidded out onto the floor. Don't mess with two piece cases any longer unless it's like a spigen, where the case attaches to another part.

    Not sure who you are asking, but the only place I know of where you can get the official Samsung screen protector is from this UK site: Official Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Screen Protector :: MobileFun.com

    How the hell does a UK site have official Samsung accessories before Samsung themselves. Anyone else see something wrong with this picture?

    Samsung is based in South Korea - I suspect S Korea would be the first to get their products. The US is somewhere further down the list.

    No, this isn't one of the cheap two part cases. Once you fit the Note 7 into the inner plastic, that fits very securely into the outside case, whose sides fit precisely around the inner plastic. Maybe you should try the TECH 21 Evo Tactical XT yourself, you'll be a believer. I am.

    Just went to the Verizon store and got the new curved glass they just got in yesterday. Full adhesion across the entire screen. Fits perfectly and works fine with 2 different cases as it is slightly undercut in the corners.

    I might try the glass, but I am perfectly happy with the Zagg HD Invisibleshield and my Tech 21 Evo tactical XT case. I feel the case will fully protect my screen as it's raised well above it.

    I believe so because they specifically told me it was. When they applied it. the had to peel off the entire sheet and then press it onto the screen glass. There are nothing that tells me that it isn't. Cannot move it, no squeaks when typing,. when you press on it it feels adhered to the glass. Looks like it to me.

    I got this installed yesterday at a Verizon store. I was super happy when they applied it, because there was no clicking on the corners and it seemed to be applied perfectly. Later last night I noticed that I was having a hard time texting. I did some testing and the screen responsiveness is definitely impacted by this protector. Lighter touches do not register. Probably because the adhesive is only on the top and bottom edges of the protector and there is too big of an air gap in the middle. The second issue is that dust is starting to collect under the sides of the protector. I keep my phones in protective microfiber pouches, not usually in cases. I ordered the official Samsung protector from eBay, not sure when I will have it, but I don't know how long I will keep the glass one on, as it is making me not want to use the phone.

    Hello all-

    I went with the case friendly armor suit military shield protector. I took my time putting it on and the fit is great. With all the wet install protectors it took a little time to get the edges to stick, but eventually they did. Works great with my Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal case. Although I have a UAG which pushes the screen protector off on the corners. Returning the UAG (although I like it) but I can deal with the Spigen and it's worth it to have a good working protector. Had it on for 5 days now and its holding up strong.

    A hint to the wise from an old one..

    What is silly to one person, is gospel, or written in stone to another. And here is the kicker, they BOTH BE CORRECT!!

    What I am saying is, what is good for you doesn't have to be good for another, and you both be correct.. Hope I am not confusing..
    And you both are correct

    Not only that, but a review now indicates: "Just a heads up a verizon sales rep told me these dont fit correctly and that vzw is aware and currently fixing it is there any time table on this, cause ive already returned one. Hopefully when its fixed ill be notified."

    Attachment 234055
    Amazon reviews for that are 1.4/5 with 26 reviews! Seems really bad.

    That 2nd link for the IQ model looks promising. Seems flat & not covering the curved edge may make it a better fit with cases. Too bad zero reviews to date.

    Oops, forgot to use quote. This was in response to post #10
