    Here's a video of a guy installing it. Now too sure about his method but at lease you can see the actual protector.

    Picked one this morning at our local AT&T store. I also liked the Pelican case for the Note 7 (did not purchase one).

    Here's a picture of the Bodyguardz HD Contour and Samsung OEM Original screen protectors side by side. Notice how much shorter the Bodyguardz is (more case friendly). Hopefully I'll get a chance to try and install them tomorrow. Too tired tonight.

    Keep us posted. Haven't found anything that works with my spigen case except the Verizon tempered glass which made me lose all sensitivity with the phone.

    Thank you to both "Retinella" and "felloffthetruck" for the in-depth on the BodyGuardz HD Contour... I think I'm going to give it a try. My soft Zagg is already starting to lift on one side and every time I look across the face of the phone when it's blank and see all the pen marks, it drives me crazy. Got to give something else a try - I watched the video you posted "felloffthetruck" - looks pretty easy to install. I went to order it on Amazon and they were out of stock but they were also charging more than AT&T? I'll swing by AT&T tomorrow. Thanks again you two for the effort!

    DID IT!

    I stopped at my AT&T Store this afternoon and they had two left so I bought one, though I cheated because their "Screen Protector Specialist" Kathryn, happened to be on the floor so I had her put it on for me... God is she good (and quick)! Anyway, I got it home, pulled out my old D80 Nikon and took a few shots with my iBlason Armorbox case on it. The only place where you can see the edge of the BodyGuardz is at the right and left lower corners - no problem at all. Such a small radius is visible that it'll never get hooked on anything!. I've already used the s Pen and definitely didn't baby it - no marks so this material is much harder than the Zagg stuff by far, although more susceptible to fingerprints/smudges - a small trade-off! Thanks again to the folks in my previous post for bringing it to my attention!

    So you like this one better than the Zagg? I have the Zagg HD dry install full body now, but really don't like all the marks that the spent leaves on it. Plus the edge to edge coverage really limits what cases can be used without peeling up the edges.

    That's why I did it - my case seemed to cover the edges of the Zagg but one side was still lifting. The pen marks were awful... this Bodyguardz feels almost like tempered glass - other than fingerprints, it's sweet!

    That looks sweet. Mine is still sitting at home waiting for me to install them.
    I'll post some pictures if I ever get it done.

    This thread had me curious went out bought one and installed it my self like all protectors patience is a must. Lined it up went on with less bubbles then the official one from Samsung. The contour is perfect and tested with plenty of cases all no issues. Hoping it lasts wish they included more in the box for 25$

    I picked one up today. Works great with the otterbox commuter case. I finally feel like my phone is protected! Thanks for the recommendation

    I also went and got one today and it's a go! I'm using it with a Ringke clear case and no lifting at all. If anything, I wish it was just a little bit bigger on the top and the sides. In any case, think I'm set on screen protector now.

    Can you actually wipe the fingerprint smudges off these without screwing them up?

    My $10 wet install screen protector looks great and works perfectly with touch sensitivity, s pen and my cases.

    Who the hell spends $30 on a screen protector and a non glass one. Sheesh

    This thread convinced me to give this a shot also. Im waiting for the otterbox defender to release but needed something in the meantime. I had the lady at At&t put it on and it looks great. I just wiped off the smudges and the screen stayed put. Time will tell if it stays on or not but in my Tech 21 Evo case, its nowhere near the case and no chance of the case lifting it. Ill try it out in the unicorn beetle pro when that arrives.

    Thanks for the tip folks.

    If I have the Microfiber cloth they give you near by, I use that, if not, I just rub it against my belly on my t-shirt and the smudges clear right up. No damage to the protector at all - I do it five or six times a day, I'd say - maybe more depending upon smudges! I also don't think the protector smudges any worse than the bare screen did without a protector so they have the same characteristics!

    I went local At&t, but they only have screen guard brand (wet instal). It's full coverage compare to body guard brand. SPEN seen to works fine.

    Funny, store rep. was scared to put it on so I install in store hahaha while customer looking.

    I'm going to buy slim case. Tired of looking for good combination.

    At&t returned mine with no problems. Im going to rely on the supcase and my insurance until the defender releases.

    Hopefully it's just a defective SP. You can get a new one under warranty. Just email them the pics.
