Default [Q] Screen Protector Options for Z1S?

Hello all, I am hoping to buy the Z1S through tmobile since I had the Z and loved it. The problem I'm having is all of the tempered glass screen protectors are for the Z1 which has the proximity sensor on the left of the Sony logo. I don't know what effect it will have putting a Z1 protector on and having it cover up the proximity sensor/light sensor.

What are you Z1S owners doing for screen protectors?

Our phone already has a screen protector so I'm not putting double screen protectors one it. When the oem one scratches up, I'll just replace it.

That is true, but the Tempered glass screen protectors are very nice and I'm not sure I want to go back to the plastic film ones. Not to mention there are very few xperia z1s PET film ones that I can find.

I have the same brand on my nexus 5 and love it, but this one is designed for the internation Z1 which is why I was asking this question in the first place. The cutout for the light sensor is on the wrong side for the US version and it would be covered.

I dont think it should i mean the glass its only 0.3 mm tick which shouldnt make as much differance for the sensors. The sensors are already covered by screen protector that it put by sony you could always take the stock screen procector off and then but the glass one on your screen.

Don't do that... Sony logo is rumored to be on screen protector.
