    I added an IQShield clear HD film front and back. This material really is a joy to use the S Pen on and I get to see my gorgeous phone. This is a wet install so if you choose to do as I did, carefully watch the official S7 installation video on You Tube and then be very patient exactly as instructed in the video. The bubbles, etc. really do disappear and unless you look very carefully you can't tell you have a protector on the glass.
    I agree with this, but mine started peeling up today at a couple corners.

    I be curious to see if yours stays down.

    Same happened to mine the next day after application. It was on there nice and good for about a day. Then one of the corners came up a little and dust got under and downhill from there.

    Check out post # 44 just 4 posts behind you. I'm ordering mine from Amazon tomorrow. As long as you're not All-THUMBS you can do it. There's a MFG YouTube video too. Oh AND you need p a t i e n c e Young GrassHopper.

    I got the clear one
    Galaxy Note 7 Screen Protector, IQ Shield® LiQuidSkin Full Body Skin + Full Coverage Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Note 7 HD Clear Anti-Bubble Film - with Lifetime Warranty

    Looking it up, I noticed there is a version 2.
    Galaxy Note 7 Screen Protector (Version 2), IQ Shield® LiQuidSkin Full Body Skin + Full Coverage Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Note 7 HD Clear Anti-Bubble Film - with Lifetime Warranty

    That one has not been reviewed yet. I wonder what they changed?

    Anyway, I went to the IQ web site and sent them a message with my experience. Since the back piece is still sticking well, I am interested in giving it another try if they send me a film. I will update if I hear back.

    This is definitely the best phone I have ever used. The only downside of my Verizon Note 7 is the terrible screen protectors. I've gone through four of them and I still haven't found a decent one yet.
    Gpel made a good tempered glass for the S7 Edge. I actually still have it on my old one. Going naked with my black onyx.

    So far, it's been excellent for me. Battery seems to improve every day as well. I am very happy so far.

    The curved sides and curved corners on both the front and back of mine are even tighter today than yesterday when I installed them. But I will say that after holding the sides down with my palm for several 10 minutes sessions on each section I then did a couple of 10 minute sessions on the corners alone. It took about an hour of holding down the film over the curved portions for each of the front and back but the effort seems to have paid off. If I had not used as much spray as I did to be able to adjust the films into alignment I believe I would have been done sooner.

    I tried it. The corner came off after a few days and I peeled it off. Going naked for now, but I may try it again. (I ordered a 2 pack).

    I just switched to Verizon from AT&T. Got the Note 7 and have been really enjoying it. As far as the lag I have noticed that with previous Notes, those with Exynos processors seem to be smoother than those with Qualcom processors. My Note 5 was always smooth. I have noticed some lag with the Note 7 but it hasn't been problematic. I love this smartphone and I'm enjoying Verizon as well.
    If you don't mind me asking, why did you switch to Verizon?
    Have you noticed any difference in signal strength? Can you use voice and data simultaneously?
    I'm on AT&T and contemplating a switch as well.
    Thank you

    I recently switched to Verizon as well. For me, the reasons were as follows:

    1. Signal Strength - I live in NJ and commute to work every day. There is a stretch of highway near Newark Airport that AT&T simply has trouble with. My first 2 days with the Note 7 and Verizon, I didn't even notice that my bus drove past the trouble spots!!
    2. Additional Data - I was paying $100 + $15 per line for 15GB of shared data with AT&T. Verizon's XL plan costs $90 for 16GB of shared data. But Verizon charges $20 per line. Verizon is also giving 2GB of bonus data per line. So my total bill is now $170 for 24GB (instead of $160 for 15GB).
    3. BONUS #1 - Verizon just announced "carryover data" (which is why I was using AT&T in the first place).
    4. BONUS #2 - Verizon is paying me $650 per line to pay off the old devices on AT&T.
    5. BONUS #3 - eBates is giving away $75 per line that you bring to Verizon.
    6. BONUS #4 - If you pay your wireless bill using an AMEX Blue card, AMEX will reimburse you up to $200. (10% off your bill for the remainder of 2016).

    Wow!! Thanks for the info!!
    I live in the Greater Boston area & have several trouble spots. I have a corporate discount which is the primary reason for my not switching yet. The other reason is simultaneous voice/data.
    I can get on a family member's t-mo plan & pay $20.00/mth, but i'm concerned about T-mo's network outside of the city.
    I only need two lines (phone & tablet) with an ample data plan.

    If you activate Advanced Calling on Verizon then you can do voice and data simultaneously.

    All the negative reviews are about a "orange peal" texture And putting a case on muckin' up the edges of the screen protector. I'll pass on this one. I just got all excited about it and wanted to help Retinella with her quest. Thanks.

    I tried this screen protector and it fell off after two days. Waiting to hear some good feedback on another brand before I buy something else.

    Don't trust me! I just had one corner come loose. My rating will be changed to reflect this. I apologize for an early optimism that has been crushed.

    Sensible. To be honest, I've been on every kind of smartphone since the Palm Treo. And I've never used a screen protector and never had a scratch. Always a case though.
