    Yes. The Verizon rep talked me into the $50 Invisibleshield glass curve screen protector, but I'm returning it because of air gaps and it was $50. I ordered an $8 Yootech screen protector from Amazon and it should be here in about 12 hours.

    No screen protector here... never have, and likely never will. I'm a little more on the fence with getting a case; I'm very careful and can count on one hand the number of times I've ever dropped a phone, but all it takes is one bad drop...

    I got the $20 Verizon glass screen protector. So far so good. It fit with my Incipio case. I'll see how it works with another case I plan on getting as soon as they are available. I don't feel a difference in sensitivity that some complained about with Verizon's screen protectors.

    I also purchased Luvitt Tempered Glass but will be replacing it. While it is nice and smooth (no drag) I do not care for the appearance of it. They have a border all the way around it (for the adhesive) which is quite visible. At some of the edges, you can actually see the adhesive. So I am now I am looking for a higher quality one.

    I tried the NeoFlex by Spigen and it's terrible.

    It has the orange-peel effect. It's noticeable when you look at your screen, but I like to use the Gear VR, and that just make things worse, because that orange peel effect is basically amplified.

    Never use one. Have never found it necessary.

    I am not going glass ... too case unfriendly. I'm thinking the regular Zagg but don't want to spend the money just for it to look like crap in a week. Plus, no case for a few days while it dries. Ugh. Decisions.

    It's an interesting debate, between the screen protector and non-screen protector crowd. I've always put one on my phones, not because I'm clumsy and drop them - like my teens do ALL the time - but because of the elements I'm near. Sand and grit is the devil when it comes to phone screens, and there's no way for me to avoid either of them, so a screen protector is necessary, unless I want scratches all up and down the damn thing. Wish I could actually enjoy just the plain screen on these phones, but I'm not willing to risk it. A scratched screen kills resale value. But the majority of these curved screen tempered glass protectors seem to suck, so I end up applying a film instead.

    I tried those $11 glass screen protectors from Amazon and they just didn't stay on with my Spigen case. Went to the mall yesterday and got a Zagg glass screen protector installed. Pricey but it works well.

    So does the zagg glass have adhesive on the whole screen or just the top and bottom.
    Just the edges and it plain sucks. Zagg Sapphire defense sticks to the whole screen.
    Had the Sapphire Defense for the iPhone 7 plus and was not to thrilled with it but it might be a valid option for the S8+

    Xtremeguard has their polyurethane skins on eBay for 2 bucks now, just ordered 2. Until it comes I cut my own. Looks a little like crap but will work until the good ones arrive. The case friendly non curved glass I got didn't account for the slight curve of the center of the screen and failed miserably. Got a refund in a couple hours when they saw the pictures though.

    I applied the Spigen NeoFlex last night as a temporary holdover until I can get one from Bodyguardz however, I am not entirely sure what to do. I also have the Spigen Tough Armor case and from what I can tell, the edge of the NeoFlex and the edge of the case is really close so if there was any protector that was a little bigger than the NeoFlex, then the case would make it lift.

    The NeoFlex is ok, but I prefer something harder - like PET plastic. Bodyguardz made those for the S7e, and the one they have for the S8+, I am not sure it is made of PET plastic. If not, then I might hold off. PET plastic is as close as you can get to glass without it being glass but it sticks to the screen at all points, not just some points like the glass ones. The NeoFlex is soft and with fingers it is okay - but when I put one of these on my Note7 last year, I had to rip it off because the self-healing properties didn't really self heal 100% when using a stylus.

    Not to talk about cases - but for anyone buying a Spigen Tough Armor - if you had bought these before for the S7e, you will notice that the one for the S8+ has edges that are higher then previously - meaning that it comes up on the edge more than before. As a result, if the protector isn't case friendly, you're going to have problems - and I think you might have problems with some that are classified as case friendly as well. It is literally a perfect fit with the NeoFlex. I am interested in hearing if people are having problems with screen protectors and the Tough Armor, or if it's just in my imagination.
    I got same protector only I think they should leave cutouts for sensors

    The first thing I did was put on a screen protector from Armorsuit. I chose this cause it has cut outs for the speaker and all the sensors.

    Are you happy so far or not with that screen protector?

    It's noticeable definitely that you have screen protector but I don't have issues with what you call orange peel effect. I would say down side is no cutouts for sensors and face unlock not working best with this screen protector, without screen protector it's outstanding unlock

    Let us know how that works... a few have returned the Alpha glass because of issues with them not having cut outs or the edges not sticking in the defender case.

    Thx for this article. Good read, basically states my experience so far. I guess I'll pass on the Zagg glass.

    Same here. I just sold my S7 Edge and it had one barely visible tiny scuff mark on it, and the guy who was buying it couldn't find it so I had to show him where it was at. That was Gorilla Glass 4. This is Gorilla Glass 5, and the YouTube guy who tests screen durability could not damage the screen for the life of him.
    I had no problem scratching my display within 24 hours. Never dropped, nothing weird happened to it at all. No idea where it came from. It pissed me off so bad that I went and exchanged it for a new one. Lol.

    True, no cutout for the iris sensor but I haven't experienced issues. It is still very fast, and to top it off, I also wear contacts and it works the same on and off.

    It's not the most ideal - I still like the PET film protectors which to me is almost like glass but I don't see any for the S8/S8+ yet. It fits perfectly with the Spigen cases so it'll do at least until I can find a better one.

    The Verizon rep didn't push the more expensive Zagg. She pushed the Verizon one, which is $30 cheaper and has a cut out for the front camera, speaker, and iris scanner.
