    So now you like your black borders and think I am missing out without them and should order a replacement with them?
    I thought before they bugged you?
    Apparently you changed your mind about them. Otherwise, why would you suggest I switch?

    Frankly, it wouldn't be an issue for me, one way or the other, black borders or not. I am just glad that this new Zagg has no sensitivity issues for me and I am glad it promises better protection than the old one.

    Is it or any other screen protector perfect? Probably not. Only a naked screen could be. If I was bugged enough by any protector for any reason, I would probably just remove it, and be extra careful with my phone. Moreover, it then wouldn't be the end of the world or break the bank if my unprotected screen got broken. Screens can be replaced.
    Dont know what your issue is never said you should switch out, what i said is you dont have the elite if you read what i said you would see that

    I stand corrected about that link. It was the old Zagg. But check out the other reviews about the Elite Curve on YouTube. Nobody, yet, in any of those reviews makes mention about the black edges that seems to bother you so much. Apparently, they don't see them as a problem.


    BTW, there is no question that I have the Elite Curve. The box clearly states so. I also had some bubble issues that you couldn't get with the old Curve, that I corrected by lifting part of the protector and working them out as I relayed it. My eyes may not be as good as yours, but during that process, I didn't notice a 1/8 inch black edge. If it was there it certainly was less than 1/8 in in width, which would have been hard to miss. ( But to be honest, I wasn't really looking that close for it, either.)

    I am not telling you not to care about the black edges, because obviously you are bothered by what you see. I am just saying that I could care less about them, particularly since they aren't that obvious to me as they are to you.
    Then you clearly are not listening to what i have said or just being arrogant, ive provided you with enough evidence from pictures to other forum posts, you clearly do not have the elite if your not seeing a black border around the edges, not to mention that i just posted a picture that was showing zagg screwed up and sent the saphire glass not the elite

    This a photograph of the box of what was sent to me. Proof enough what is on my phone?
    You're right this protector sucks.
    It does have thick black edges and I hate it too. I fully agree with you. I am arrogant. You win!
    Happy, now?

    Wow, even the picture on your packaging clearly shows the black border. I guess it is quite possible you are one of the people who got shipped an older version "mistakenly" sent in Elite packaging. Either that or they had a change (or error) in some production run.

    Thank you for all your help and kind words! Now that I hope you are finished with setting me straight, might I suggest you take some time and look in the mirror.

    Yes, I agree the drawings on the box clearly shows the black edges. But, I don't think they that they are that obvious on the phone. Some might disagree.

    Furthermore, Zagg never made the Saphire protector for the N8, although they did for the S8. Therefore, it would be impossible for them to send me, by mistake, one for the N8 that would fit it. At the same time, that mistake could have been made, with the S8 version.

    Now, just for argument sake, it was possible, don't you think the Verizon representative who removed my old Zagg and installed the Elite that I got from Zagg wouldn't have mentioned that it looks just like the old one? Instead, he said he liked the full screen adhesive and that he planned to get the Elite for his own N8. (Mine was the first he installed. Verizon had not had them in stock.)

    Are their black edges or is this the way the glass is beveled so that it just looks this way? Personally, I dont care, I just want a tempered glass screen protector that has adhesive everywhere, works well with touch and the pen, and costs less than $50!

    Apparently there are black edges, but until they were pointed out to me, I didn't notice them. Now, that I see them, they don't bother me. Like you, I care more that it works well. So far, it does.

    Another thing that perhaps hasn't been mentioned, is that the new Elite seem to be more fingerprint resistant than the old Zagg.

    To answer your question - they are black edges. But if you are looking for something substantially cheaper than $50, you are wasting your time with details about the Elite which is $49.99.

    Many have suggested buying the old Zagg curve, registering it, and then getting a free upgrade to the Elite. I believe you can buy the old one for under $35.

    What is function of the black edges?
    If no real function or if can be modified, did anyone suggest to Zagg to remove black edges in next product upgrade?
    It would than look better and cause less in-thread fighting.

    Just got this and now my screen doesn't seem as responsive to touch as it should be.

    You may have gotten an older Glass Curve model. The newer one is a Glass Curve Elite.

    That is very disconcerting. I'd file a claim and get a full refund. I'd also look into the Whitestone protector instead.
