Just ordered the LG G8X ThinQ with the case/screen.

Can anyone recommend any screen protectors for the the two screens?

With both screens attached does it do a good job protecting the phone?

Any good cases available for when the second screen isn't attached?

TIA!

there are very few available on amazon, I ordered the gobukee clear case and its fine but unexceptional. With the dual screen on and a glass screen protector on the main screen I feel like there is minimal protection from scratches but little to protect from drops. I hope that more options for the main phone become available soon.

Finding selection of screen protectors/case to be pretty weak here for me in Canada. None shown “sold or shipped” by Amazon, and eBay’s along w/Amazon are largely China based… Admittedly the two cases shown here came from China and were very timely in their arrival, less than two weeks.

Received a couple of TPU cases bought off eBay (China) being very pleasantly surprised. Quality and sturdiness well above par IMO providing excellent grip. Camera protection, definitely not an issue here. And buttons/controls are very nice. OtterBox makes a Symmetry case but its $67.53 CAD price tag, plus taxes/shipping, is way too steep in my opinion. Symmetry Series used to be the lower tier/priced OtterBoxe’s but appears the manufacture has upped their pricing across board.

Purchased a 2-pack of glass screen protectors off eBay as well (US) but as can be seen the gap is fairly large. Were never touted as “full coverage” yet there appears to be much room for improvement as I don’t believe the screen tapers that far back, could be wrong... Nope not all that impress with it but will do for now. Also bought the 3-pack (six total) SuperShieldz PET film ones off Amazon.ca, not received yet although have read they too fall way short leaving a fairly large gap.

Heard w/glass screen protectors using DualScreen case might be a problem due to thickness of glass, won't close properly. Haven't tested but is one reason we chose the PET film protectors.

Believe the DualScreen case does provide some reasonable protection for phone yet its front cover display would be susceptible to damage.

Thanks for the info - have either one of you used a glass screen protector with the dual case yet?

Have a glass screen protector just on the G8X itself and it work w/DualSceen case, w/o a protector, no problem. Clearances are too tight though from what I can tell so adding another would more than likely cause interference. I plan on installing PET film protectors on both screens anyway expecting them to work, just recieved but no time yet to apply.

PS... Seen the other day my go-to film protector brands (iLLumiShield and Skinomi) are now available on eBay in clear and matte, might give them a try if the ones we just bought don't pan out. I usually get excellent life out of my protectors so it's just a matter of finding the right ones... I lean towards matte yet others are saying they don't play nice with the in-display fingerprint sensor which is too bad if that's the case.

Welcome to Android Central! Are you saying you lost your phone and want to trace where it is? Or are you worried someone has hacked you and is somehow tracing your calls or location? Or is your device named Trace and you just want to let us know?;)
