    Just got my spigen neoflex on my phone and its great you put the protector on while in the spigen case, mine was a tough armor. Im picky about even the tiniest bubble so it took a couple try but looks great!

    We will see how it holds up over the next several days but a screen protector and case for 24 bucks when i bought it was a steal.

    How does the s-pen work with that screen protector? Any drag when trying to write something?

    Unfortunately, it's horrible with the spen - WAY too much friction. I tried a tempered glass protector, but it didn't fully cover the screen, and actually blocked some of the screen. I'll keep the neoflex on until the Whitestone is available.

    Have you tried changing pen tips? At one time there were extras that were a slightly different color. For example, 2 white tips and 2 gray tips. One of them was better with plastic. I don't remember if it was a Note phone or one of my Note tablets.

    There are other tips included, but I haven't even looked at them yet. The plastic protector is a short-term solution for me - although the wet protector installs easily and looks great (at least initially), I prefer tempered glass. The Whitestone Dome Glass protector that uses UV bonding will be available in 1 or 2 days, and I have that on order. I tried a "standard" tempered glass protector, and it was horrid. It didn't cover the whole screen, and the black borders actually cut off text on the screen.

    Unfortunately, right now, the neoflex is the best solution.

    6-Sept 17 - update - I was a bit premature - it must have been still a little wet. This AM, it seems much better with the SPen. I didn't try the SPen with no protector, but it actually is very smooth now with the neoflex..

    Yeah, that was my fear. I bought the NeoFlex as stopgap until my TGSPs get here. Haven't taken the couple minutes yet to put it on yet, but I figured it would be a nightmare with the S-pen

    Yes with Note 7 it was mentioned different tip available for screen protectors. I believe the white tips are harder for plastic screens.

    Good deal. Glad it's working out. A sticky protector is the pits with an SPen.

    Does it stick ok to the edges also?

    I didn't have an issue with the sides sticking. Screen is a bit sticky and the protector doesn't work with a non Spigen case. Using a different case lifts the edges of the protector up at the corners.

    Works fine in both my Caseology cases and my Tauri wallet case. Just gotta align it right. Can't speak to any other brand of case, though.

    I like Spigen with the pen better. It feels it does not respond well with my touches

    Will try it on my Samsung Rugged case on Friday, if it doesn't work out, I'll just go without a screen protector.

    Put the Neoflex on last night. It sucks. Feels rubbery. And has the Orange peel effect. Also the sPen feels like it's being dragged over the bottom of a shoe. I'll give it a couple days, but I think I'll be ripping it off and going bare screen.

    Had it on for a week now. Definitely plastic feel. My edges are coming up ever so slightly. It looks like crap compared to my Note 5 which has no screen protector, but it has some micro scratches for sure. This may come off eventually....

    I'll give it a few days before deciding, one thing I am happy about is that the Samsung Rugged kick stand case fits ok without encroaching on to the Neo Flex.

    Have an Olixar tempered glass on order but also ordered the Spigen Neo Flex screen and Neo Hybrid case already here so decided to install the Flex screen tonight.

    I’m a fan of tempered glass from using them on my iPhone 6s and how optically clear and feels nice gliding your finger through glass but I’ll see how clear this one gets and how it feels with the pen. Maybe try the other tip if feels rough.

    Installation was smooth and installed it in case just like the video above so I have it fit perfectly and no touch to the case. Like how it’s so thin almost not noticeable. I use screens more for scratch protection than drop protection. Will let it sit at home and cure for a day or two.

    Threw on a s8 plus screen protector I had in the house and it fits perfectly on the note 8 with more room on the corners to avoid lifting

    Took my neo flex off. Have the Whitestone dome that I hope to install today. The corners and sides of neo flex kept coming up with my tough armor case....
