    Hey guys!

    So has anyone found a GOOD screen protector for the note 7 yet? I am pretty upset right now as I have a few little scratches on the screen already and I have only had the phone in my pocket. No drops or anything else that should scratch it. I usually never use screen protectors and no other phone has scratched this easily. I am coming from the s6 edge plus, before that the iphone 6, etc etc. Never has this happened before. I love the phone but it almost feels ruined already. I didn't want to believe the reviews on youtube as I felt they were just being premature but it really looks like GG5 scratches easier than previos GG. The irony is the screen protectors for the curved screen are not very good.

    sigh...

    When the S7 Edge came out, I had bad experiences with them and cases. They ended up peeling from being too big and against the cases I tried.

    I bought Bodyguardz brand and it was slightly smaller than the screen and had no issues.

    Bought two for the note 7...will know whenever they arrive in the mail.

    Do you guys think they woukd exchange the phone since it's within 14 days? I'd lose out I think on the preorder promotion but this is just ridiculous. I know technically it's my "fault" but i guess next time I won't put my phone in my pocket... Lol

    Getting my phone today, putting this on right after I open it

    Hopefully just covering the flat area doesn't bother me too much. And if it does, i have this one coming in soon.

    Thank you. I asked in another post if maybe the note 5 screen protector would fit on the flat portion of the screen. I'm using the the screen protector that came with the phone yet, and it isn't bothering me, probably just got used to it. Fortunately Verizon didn't print all over the screen protector that came with the phone.

    I might try this, wish Verizon carried these, or if the note 5 will work then go that way so they can install it.

    Also tell us what you think of the screen protector when you put it on.

    Seems like a very good idea. Why wouldn't avoiding the curves work,anyone? No worries about the case taking it off. Let us know how it goes. I am starting to hate the reviews at Amazon anymore, so fake.

    I triee IQ skin and the edges started coming up after a day. Tried the verizon tempered glass and it reduces touch sensitivity. Everything seems to get mixed to bad reviews. Honestly I think ill just leave it without a protector until theres a really good one available. The plan is to trade this phone in next year anyway so not going to get too OCD about surface scratches.

    I really don't know why this is a big deal, I have always put some form of protector on the screen.. people need to either deal with the scratch or do something about it. There are protectors that work and some that don't . Fact is there will be others using GG5 it's not isolated to just this phone.

    Not the best pictures, but I was trying to show.. not a holo effect, but a rainbowing effect right at the edge. This is with a glass screen protector that I posted earlier, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU5363430

    Screen protector is nice and thin, went on perfectly. Its just that rainbow effect at the edge. I'm okay with it for now. Gonna try the bestskinsever and see how that goes. If i don't like that, i got another one of these glass ones to put back on again and I'll just have to live with the rainbow until something else comes out.

    Good screen protector? Already have scratches...-img_3372.jpg

    The big deal is the quality of gg 5 is subpar to previous versions. Also, screen protectors take away from the experience and if scratches were just inevitable they should recommend using a screen protector but of course they don't. What's worse is they most likely won't honor the quality and replace a phone with screen scratches. Like I said I've never used screen protectors and never had an issue. This thing now has like 3 scratches in a week...
    And the biggest irony... There are No good protectors for the phone...so what would you like me to use?

    Well with just the plastic screen protector that comes on the phone, scrolling from side to side, you catch the edge of that protector. It was enough at Best Buy to bug me.

    I have still not bought this phone because of the screen protector issues. Is the verizon tempered glass good enough just to get me by and actually buy the phone until something better is released?

    Lol. just saw the pics. Question, if you decide to go with the Bestskinever, which screen protection plan would you consider if not wanting to do the body only?

    Edit..going with Glossy case to fit.

    If you have an edge phone, you need a case friendly screen cover. I use Ghost Armor, have used them for over 5 plus years. Use normal armor. For the front and the Matte for the rear.

    Here you go. I have been using Ghost Armor before Android, back when the OS to have and use was Windows Mobile and then with the Evo line with Sprint.

    Thank god for gorilla glass 5. <sarcasm> I see this every year. Not blaming you, but people expect the next gen glass to be better, which is understandable. But the bottom line is, gorilla glass will scratch, and always has. Those expecting otherwise, well..... I think it just has better shatterproof qualities. Not scratches.

    Take it as a lesson learned and get a screen protector if it bothers you. For me, a miniscule scratch that can only be seen in the perfect light if you only hold it at the perfect angle, would keep me up at night. Therefore I order a screen protector before the phone. But I'm anal like that. If what happened to you, happened to me, I'd be buying a new phone right now or seeing a shrink.

    I guess I didn't expect it to be anymore scratch resistant then previous versions just the same. I've never had a screen protector on any other phone a d I'm coming from the so edge plus that I've had for a year with no protector and there are no scratches. At least, nothing as noticeable as what this phone has on it now. I guess it's hard to get my point across but I really feel that gg5 is less scratch resistant than previous versions whether corning admits it or not.

    I still haven't found a good protector reading through the forums that's even available. Everything on Amazon is back ordered.

    Are there a y available from like best buy or Verizon or something that are even decent that I can go pick up today? Seems like either they don't fit with a case or get marks from the s pen etc etc

    I'm not sure if I can return the phone or not for this. Haven't decided if I should go to Verizon and ask or not. I still want the preorder gift and don't want to mess that up. Although I think if I returned it for an issue but had still pre-ordered it I shuld get the promotion..

    yes, the bodyguardz hd contour protector is pretty good. its smaller than screen like you say and doesnt come into contact with the edges of a case. i'm using a otterbox symmetry and it fits great. no orange peel effect like the zaggs.
