    Before I received my Note 7, I had in-hand the following:

    * Sparin tempered glass cover
    * Skinomi plastic (wet-apply) front and back protection covers
    * Ringke air case

    I was prepared - or so I thought. The Sparin worked for a few hours, and even worked with the Ringke case, but after a few hours, the glass started to move, and the case started to push it away from the phone. The adhesive on the tempered-glass cases are only at the top and bottom - not enough to hold them in place. Eventually the glass cracked when I tried to reposition it. From what I can see, all the full-coverage tempered glass covers have the same adhesive in the same place.

    So, to plan B. I applied the Skinomi on the front glass. It appeared to install properly, even on the edges. I waited a couple of hours for it to dry and put the Ringke case on. The Skinomi immediately crimped at the corners. It was quickly obvious, that NO cover - glass or plastic - would work with a case, even a minimal case like the Ringke Air. Amazon reviews confirmed this.

    At this point, after reading a LOT of Amazon reviews, I realize the following:

    1) You can have a case, but no front glass protection (not plastic or tempered-glass); or
    2) You can have front-glass protection and a rear protector with PLASTIC (no tempered-glass) and no case.

    Both of these leave you half-naked, plus, I don't like the plastic front-protectors.

    I hate the thought of not having front-glass protection (especially after seeing the youtube videos) and, although I don't drop my phone a lot, it does happen. So, the decision comes down to: Which is the least of the evils?

    At best, I'll be half-naked and afraid.

    Iam using armor guard screen guard and with that i keep changing the cases from hybrid to clear case with stand...think i screen guard is fine but to have better case...is more important....
    I have dropped my phone many times flat on the screen...luckily nothing happened...thou note 7 have gorilla 5 that has better shatter protection but less scratch resistant than gorilla 4

    I'm using the Samsung Clear Flip Case. It protects the screen and phone (more so than last year's model), folds completely back when the phone is in use, and looks gorgeous. It's not heavy duty protection but just enough to enjoy the phone's beauty and offer at least a bit of protection.

    I also have the Spigen Neo Hybrid and really like it. However, the problem is the edges of the case meet with the edges of the screen protector and push it from the phone.

    By the way your title for this thread is very creative.

    I'm using a Ringke Crystal Clear case. Works great and dose not add much bulk to the phone. Not using a screen protector, haven't used one since the iPhone 4 days

    I'm using this Spigen Ultra-Thin case. It fits like a glove with no bulk. It feels like my phone is naked but it gives some protection.

    I have this case as well but I had to stop using it after it basically peeled away my screen protector. I ended up having to take off the screen protector too snd I think that's precisely what the OP is talking about.

    Have you used it. I just looked at it and there's no reviews. Is it a screen protector that I can use with my case ?

    I'm using a Zagg InvisibleShield screen protector with an Otterbox Commuter case and the screen protector on my Note7 does the same thing--it lifts at the corners with the screen protector on. It's irritating. It's even advertised as being "case-friendly". Yeah. Right.

    FYI, Verizon is selling a curved tempered glass protector. It is $34 and has adhesive on top, bottom, and both sides.
    Just installed it, and it is almost perfect. I have installed many glass protectors and this was the most difficult BC you have to be exact. I am a fraction of a millimeter off and it is driving me nuts lol.
