Cases need to be carrier specific (sometimes) because Verizon has a thicker case and some other changes. As far as I know the actual screen size and shape is the same for all models so you should not need anything carrier specific.

I hope so, I'm probably going to order one later on. Never had a glass screen protector. I think my biggest concern would be how it plays with a tpu case. I've had flimsy screen protectors act weird on corners. Hopefully this stays put and plays nice with case.

With the curvature at the edge of the G2's screen, I think you'll find the screen protectors are a bit undersized to prevent issues with adhesion. That will also mean no interference with a case. Perhaps some of the folks on here with carrier accessory screen protectors and tpu cases can chime in.

At 8H hardness, it won't scratch nearly as easy as plastic screen protectors.
Anything can be scratched if abraded hard enough.

Just tried a sample of this Flexible Glass out, the edges of the protector lift up as I suspected.

GL to your pre-orders

I am using Skinomi screen protector and no adhesion issue and I keep it in my pocket all the time. One issue is where I knock knock, I can see indentations all over the place. Was hoping the glass would work better and thinking about buying soon.

Huh? I have some cheap eBay screen protectors that work fine with a reasonable edge exclusion. I find it hard to believe premium manufacturers wouldn't do this. Stranger things have happened, though.
