    Screen sensitivity was a huge issue for me with the otterbox defender. If you do a lot of typing I would not recommend it.
    which brings up a point: that little USB adapter that came with your phone, to be used to transfer data from your old phone is also useful for attaching USB drives, or for that matter an honest-to-Bob keyboard.

    It is, however, too bulky to fit into the S7 via the openings provided by the Otter box or other cases such as the Unicorn I am currently using.

    So if you want to use that little OTG adapter with these cases, then you will want to get a little micro-USB extension cable.

    I was just logging on here to complain about the same thing. I've had the phone for about 3 weeks now...and I've tried 3 different glass screen protectors. ALL OF THEM GARBAGE.

    I ordered Yootech...and it ended up being a static-cling type, not the film applied with liquid like i loved on my Note7. So...now I'm waiting for another brand to arrive today.

    Having said that...my reason for wanting a screen protector has more to do with the Manufacturer Oleophobic coating on the screen. After a while it rubs off and the phone attracts prints like crazy. So i'm trying to preserve some of that original coating by using a screen protector.

    I have the otterbox defender and the built in screen protector sucks. I popped it out and added a zagg protector. Typing is so much better now.

    I have this.

    The texture was kind of weird at first, but it works well.

    You have to place it perfectly though, out you may have to trim it in-place to keep your external case from peeling an edge up.

    Another Armor Suit like the one above, but this is case friendly. I use it with the Otterbox Symmetry case. Works very well.

    From what I read, rumors are no flat display and two curved sizes...5.7 and 6.2!!! Is Samsung completely losing it??? What about a 5.5 for people who don't want a note size or phablet?

    FWIW, the "new version" of the Zagg Curved screen protector works flawlessly with no loss of touch sensitivity and it adheres great. I've had it for a few weeks and can now say that there finally is a screen protector that works on the S7 Edge. The original Zagg glass was horrible, and so were a few others that I tried and returned.
    Yes, it's too expensive, but it does work if you have $50 to shell out to protect a $700 phone!

    Does nobody here understand the reason for this?

    Let me explain:

    Every edge device will have a tolerance on the radius of the curves on the glass. Every device will vary ever so slightly, might even be in the micron range. These variances are why you'll never get a curved glass protector, you'd literally need a custom made mating part to fit exactly to your device. Even the S7 doesn't have a full protector due to the curves on the edge of the device.

    So basically, they'll never exist. I'm hoping Samsung start bringing out flat panels again, getting tired of scratching my screen/breaking it due to not being able to have that safety net of a glass protector.

    Are you using the Zagg with or without a case?

    It works with the Samsung Clear case and a Story Leather slim case.
    It does not go entirely to the edge so I think most cases still work with the new Zagg.

    OK folks what will work on this phone? Glass has its issues...film does too. Helpppp
    I got the Otterbox Defender and the screen protector on the S7 edge version of this case isn't the crappy plastic that's seen on other Defender cases. It's pretty high-quality plastic and it's great!
