Don't buy it. The edges don't stick around camera area and breaks way to easy. I bought one and still have it on the phone but the corner is cracked and is spreading.

I NEVER buy accessories from the Verizon stores. There is heavy pressure on employees to meet sales goals so many lie like crazy.

Yeah - Had the same issue with mine. Also went ahead and bought a .2mm or whatever from Amazon. Had spider cracks within hours with normal usage. Emailed the rep, got a new one and the same thing happened. For $7 it was worth the trial. Still waiting on a solid one.

Bought mine from amazon last week (just got my "like new Turbo" on 12/30) and havent had any issues, although around the edges you can see where it isnt stuck down. From what I think i remember reading, the screen is curved (slightly?) so it wont sit flat on the screen. Its not that bad, maybe 2mm at its largest gap. I just hope it protects it when it needs it.

I just ordered some military grade screen protectors. I had one for my droid ultra and loved it. I like the Tempered Glass but really don't like how the edges don't adhere to the phone.

So mine cracked Monday night. I didnt even drop the phone or anything (that I recall) so maybe it was just because it was in my pocket and flexed from sitting down or something?? Apparently theres a lifetime warranty... so Ill see about getting another one under the warranty. Heres the one i had.

Was it a Verizon brand? or the Zag brand? I had a Zag on my Note 4 and after a month, it started to crack.... I won't put a screen protector on my phone... Hell you better off just being careful or but in a case the comes with a screen protector attached..

I've had great experiences so far with tempered glass screen protectors. I ordered mine off Amazon because it was cheaper, but my local Wireless Zone (certified Verizon retailer) is great with replacements for screen protectors and stuff. Whenever my phone goes for a swim (this happens often), they always provide me with a free, no questions asked loaner (I could easily walk away with it) until mine dries out or I get a new one. Obviously, this could just be the local owner, but I have nothing bad to say about them.

I had one put on at the Verizon store when I bought my Turbo. Still on there and no cracks, and no problems with separation around the edges. I believe that your success depends on how good the tech was that put it on. If they don't get the screen cleaned adequately then they will not stick down.
