So I ordered the ones from XtremeGuard Spartan Tempered Glass

And used the discount code and got them for 6.00 a piece. Havent got them yet but people are reporting that they are aligned horribly and requesting refunds.

So now I need another brand. I've always used spigen for my regular screen protectors. Never tired a glass one.. But there's plenty of brands out there..

Anyone make any recommendations based on the g3 or previous phones models that they used an glass protector on?

Ones I've looked at are:

I am using the one in your first link.
The Spigen GLAS.tR NANO SLIM , a bit pricy but I've used them on my last couple phones and love them.

I think Spigen glass products is so pricy, but, it's worth it I think!

I just ordered the Spigen. I went with it because it was so thin with rounded corners, it completely covers the top, and because I could get it with prime (I want to slap it on before I touch the new screen to ensure no smudges). Most don't seem to cover the top and that leaves an area for a crack to start, and probably doesn't look as nice.

I had planned on ordering the second link one which seemed better while cheaper, but it's not available now.

I stopped using screen protectors on my last 2 phones (Nexus 4 and Nexus 5). However, my Nexus 5's screen developed a couple of pretty nasty scratches over the past month or two. In an effort to not subject my G3 to the same fate, I did some research and went with the recommended Spigen GLAS.tR NANO SLIM Tempered Glass protector. It was definitely pricey but had excellent reviews and I was hoping to keep the feel of the stock screen, which these glass protectors supposedly mimic.

My phone finally arrived today so I immediately installed the Spigen protector before I even turned the phone on. It was significantly easier than what I remember from standard screen protectors and came out absolutely flawlessly. I was never able to accomplish this with regular screen protectors so I was very happy that the ease of install lived up to the hype. Overall the screen protector feels like the bare screen and you'd never know it was there, especially once the TPU case was installed.

While it is pricey, I imagine it will last quite a while, so it's worth it to me. I'd definitely recommend it.

**Ignore the thing that looks like a bubble near the bottom left of the screen, it was a piece of dust that wiped right off.

I goth this

Fits very nice and is thin, but it seems to pick up stubborn smudges rather easily. This is the first glass screen protector I bought so I don't know what to expect.

I went with some glass from eBay, it was a doodle to fit and cost 8. Infinitely better than the screen protector that came from spigen (not glass), that seemed to smudge and was took hard to fit (bubbles)

Go with #3. Its the best for the money hands down. Trust me, you will not be disappointed and probably buy an extra after you get it.

Beware.. if you buy any of them with a big cut out rather than a separate cut out for the camera and speaker you will get a lot of dust collecting there. At least my nillkin one does anyway, apart from that its great.
