Starting thread for Tempered Glass screen Protectors that cover the whole entire front display* and edge*

LUVVITT TEMPERED GLASS Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge - Crystal Clear
Ships March 17

Says its crystal clear? S6 didn't have any clear tempered class due to adhesion issues on edge.

S7 Edge Screen Protector - Peyou® Curved Full Coverage Premium Tempered Glass] [Ultra Thin 0.2mm Thickness] Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Colors: Black, White, Gold, & Clear
Ships March 20
Honestly, I'd wait on ordering one of these. The boxes all look hella sketchy and the second link doesn't even have anywhere near the right phone as the model image for the S7 (at least the Edge on both of these has an older model picture). Chances of the screen scratching the first couple of weeks while you figure things out is pretty low since the anti-scratch coating doesn't typically begin to wear off until at least a month (Then is usually pretty vulnerable to scratches; especially after 6 months).

I'd save your money for now. S6 Edge definitely didn't have the best screen shield pre-order experience. Fittings were terrible and some didn't even cover the 'edge.'

To be honest, I would use a conventional film screen protector (maybe combined with a case) until something proven reaches the market.
There aren't even any good film ones yet. I bought a wet install one for now since its the only thing I could find.

Zagg will be making a curved glass screen protector and selling it for $40. Might be better quality than the cheap Chinese ones. Time will tell.

I contacted Zagg they have are far away from launch. I reached out to them and here is the response:

"We are currently in the process of developing a Glass Invisibleshield that will cover the Galaxy S7 Edge. However, as of right now, it looks like it won't actually be released until late summer or early fall of this year."

They might as well not even bother at that rate. Zagg isn't the only player around anymore, so I would put my money elsewhere unless they release something now that's better than what's being offered.

Isn't the S6 Edge basically the same shape, and size as the S7 Edge? They only added a MicroSD slot.... same basic design....

No, the S7 screen shape is vastly different even if it resembles the one in S6 Edge. But the same company that made the S6 Edge protector can probably do one for the S7 Edge.

I've been reading online that the S7 is basically using the same enclosures as the S6.... because Samsung didn't sell a lot of them for lack of the MicroSD slot....

I'd like to get one of these glass screens, but at this stage the cheapest I've seen is around £15 from China. I'll wait until the phone is actually in my hands, they'll come down in price soon enough. I have a protective case on order, that's the main thing.

Considering the continued fail to find a perfect glass s6 edge protector, I'd recommend one of the pet solutions myself...

I ordered the second one on your list and they shipped it the day after I ordered it... Problem is it is coming from China and I didn't know it. Not very happy. When I get it I may ask for a refund if I don't like it.
