These new tempered glass protectors with the black surround adhesive are terrible. Poor touch sensitivity and a weird hollow feel/sound because they don't actually sit flat on the screen. Are there any non-adhesive tempered glass protectors that are worth looking into? Amazon reviews are spotty. for every brand and every type of protector for the G8.

Sticky surround and leaves an air gap between the screen and protector. Also, 50% of the reviews are poor.

The air gap doesn't annoy you? And the loss of touch sensitivity?

I don't notice it it's pretty close to the screen if you ask me & screen sensitivity is about 98% also our g8's have a feature to increase screen sensitivity when using a screen protector idk if you knew that

Tried that and it still doesn't feel right.

I'm thinking of trying a film protector like Ringke. I've also got all these on the way:

Tried this 32nd Extra Armoured Tempered Glass Screen Protector which is equivalent to the GPEL and seems to be alright but the adhesive isn't great I managed to move the screen protector out of position by a little force. Probably may to consider ones with full adhesive...

Used these on my wifes pixel 2 and they are great. You get a free one if it breaks.

My new g8 has one. it comes with a jig to be sure it lines up perfect. curves on the edges and extremely good fit. No issue with the case.
