I recently bought tempered glass from brando and very happy with it. I now plan to buy another one for the back but i want to protect the camera as well. Is it ok if i use the front without cutouts or my camera will be affected?

I don't know if tempered glass will have the same problem; but I placed a plastic screen protector on the back and I noticed that if you cover the flash then when you take a picture, the light from the flash will travel along the protector and cause an annoying blue glare in all your night shots using the flash.

You could, but you'd somehow have to cut a hole for camera/flash

If u place it over the camera the flash light will fcuk up your pics. U need one with cut outs.

Yes you can. i had tempered glass on my Z1 before .I gave away my Z1 and bought Z2. before giving it i removed the tempered glass and applied it on the backside of z2. it looks abit weird but works fine for me. ( actually looks like man wearing shorts )
i was worried why my photos with flash looked weird blue. thanks guys for the heads up. the only thing which was keeping me away from Sony phones was lack of Gorilla glass ( dunno why they are so stubborn ) . now because of introduction of tempered glass i switch over to Sony from M7. I salute the guys who invented tempered glass protection.. Great find

I got front and back protector from here. Happy with it. It fits perfectly fine, doesn't add anything to the thickness, and works properly with the magnetic dock.
