    First of all it won't work if you use the gear VR, definitely will distort the image. Second, it's very hard to get a case and screen protector to work. Might have to just use it without a screen protector, oh well. A case is definitely needed for better grip otherwise it'll be difficult to hold with the thin bezels. Just a heads up for everyone.

    So far I'm agreeing with you, but very disappointed that I can't put a tempered glass on it. I hated the plastic rubbery ones, but I'm not loving the idea of going without anything.

    Think it's time to consider glass screen protectors and curved screens aren't meant to be together.

    I have the zagg glass for s8+ and spigen neo hybrid.

    If I bordered off the perimeter of the protector (so you couldnt see adhesive) u wouldn't be able to tell it existed by function for sure.

    I've done 2 pluses now with no complaints. I'm feeling like it's an application issue for people.
    I can even put a piece of paper over the screen and operate it with my wrist planted and phone setting next to my hand by just the wiggle of my finger (on any area) or even turning my hand over and using the smooth part of my fingernail.

    Maybe I was lucky? I doubt there's that much inconsistency in manufacturing.

    Strange hysteria over this.

    Armorsuit, for one, makes a case friendly protector for the S8. I have the same on an S7e and it has no interference with my Spigen armor case. Same setup on S8+.

    Glad to hear it's working out well for you. I'll probably stop by Best Buy or ATT and have a Zagg installed. Last night when picking up my phone Best Buy didn't have any which I found odd.

    $50 for the Zagg and 50% of the reviews give it one star. Don't think so.

    Just to reiterate I think the rating of 0 or perfect 10 for function lies in the application.
    I'd consider doing it yourself if you're coordinated and thought savvy.

    I was lucky enough to get mine on Thursday from my local BB despite the associates saying they didn't have them in yet. God bless online specific store shopping

    It doesn't adhere to the edges at all. Zagg does provide a foolproof method of applying the protector, but it still doesn't cover the screen well. I should've learned my lesson from the glass screen protectors from the S7 edge.

    This Link has a decent amount of success for them.

    Just saying it's not all bad. Hit or miss and bad seems to be installation maybe. My edges are locked down good, but the bottom does come shy of my case maybe 1/16". Edges are a perfect meet. Top is mostly cut out for speakers and cam (which I wish was a full design).

    So what will you use? I'm particularly concerned due to having young children.

    Hopefully people will report back on screen protectors and the VR. Secondly I'd rather have a screen protector than not. There is a thread somewhere on here people are talking about this issue.

    Not sure if you're aware of "case friendly" but if not hope below helps...

    You need to search for "case friendly screen protector on Amazon or eBay.
    They leave clearance the edges for cases.

    100% correct and the Otterbox Alpha is the same. Only has adhesive in the top, bottom and thin sides.

    I'm going to try the Zagg Sapphire defense when it becomes available. I had it for the iPhone 7 Plus and was not thrilled but it may be a good option the S8/S8+as it has adhesive on the actual display area.

    I got an $8 Yootech screen protector from Amazon that will be delivered today. It's not glass, but it's got great reviews and it was amazing on my S7 edge last year.

    I don't have children. I'll be using a Yootech wet application screen protector from Amazon. I had one on my S7 edge last year and it was great.

    I don't recommend it! I applied this same screen protector last night and it looks and feels like crap on the phone. Sticky and has lines all over it from where I had to squeeze the bubbles out. Doesn't stay on the edges either. I followed the instructions to let it sit 6-8 hours, which it did overnight. It appears to have good reviews because for some reason people rate it before they even had the phone. Look at the recent reviews....the phone came out yesterday remember.

    I ended up getting the cheapest Zagg protector. It works fine. I don't really like Zagg (I Once I bought a screen protector on sale and there was nothing in the box @ Best Buy for another phone in the past and I was laughing my butt off since I was all HAHAHAHAHA INVISIBLE SHIELD ALRIGHT I CAN'T FIND IT. I complained to Zagg & they ended up shipping me a free replacement), but I used some gift credit for it at BB just so it's protected and fine. (And it wasn't invisible or missing so that works for me haha)
