For the folks that got the LK tpu... does it work with Spigen cases or does it lift? A couple of reviews on Amazon mentioned lifting. I figured XDA members would give better advice. 🙃
I'm using the Spigen rugged armour case with the LK tpu and it is perfect, it is only at the camera that you realise you have a screen protector on.

That's weird. Mine arrived too and it's slightly too small. I'll post some pictures later.

Hm, did you have to cover the speaker and the buttons? I was careful with the liquid stuff and all the liquid stuff stayed under the glas which you put on top. Nothing spilled or dripped to the sides.
Strange, maybe there's a revised version, the ones I have are definitely slightly too big. I covered the grill and buttons anyway but there wasn't that much glue in the vials do it wasn't too bad.

Using ultra hybrid and no lift for a pretty tight case

Also update the rear glass screen protector with the revised teardrop also causes glare

So I had a tempered glass camera protector with the flash camera cutout. Yesterday, I had to take a flash picture and the quality was awful. The tempered glass spread the light to the camera and the image was washout an aweful. Definitely had to take it off. Definitely don't recommend the tempered glass camera protector.

My wife and I have been using the LK screen protectors (tossed the camera ones) for the past couple of weeks and we've both been happy with them. My wife says she detected a change in how it felt after a few days, but I haven't noticed anything. I can feel where the screen protector edge is at the top, which seems to be slightly lower than it should be, but I use gestures so I hardly ever swipe down from the very top.

My wife is using hers with a "Spigen Slim Armor CS Designed for Google Pixel 6 Pro Case (2021) - Rose Gold" although she'd like to change back to an OtterBox Defender case when there's a sale again, and I'm using mine with an OtterBox Defender.

Nice!

What's the issue with the camera protector?

It's been reported previously by others that the camera protector causes problems, especially when using the flash.

I will add that I bought two packages of the LK screen protectors, with two in each package because I assumed I might mess one up. I did, and then the second one in the same package had some kind of line in it, so the third time was the charm and I used the spare one from the second package.

I don't think it was particularly difficult, I just didn't pay attention to manually keep the top of the screen protector lined up with the front camera. It was definitely way easier than the kind of screen protector you have to get the bubbles out from under. The fingerprint reader has been working 100%, even before the .037 firmware update.

Edit: This is the one LK [2+2 Pack] 2 Pack Screen Protector Design for Google Pixel 6 Pro 6.71-inch + 2 Pack Camera Lens Protector, Self-Healing TPU Film for Pixel 6 Pro, Ultra-Thin, HD, [Not for Pixel 6], Bubble-Free. $15.99 and there's a 15% off checkbox right now. Also says $3.20 less for Prime members, but I can't verify that as I rarely pay for Prime.

Just got these in from AliExpress, I ordered a 2 pack of the Mocolo, and an unbranded (slightly more expensive) 2 pack.

Both are literally the same thing in different boxes. They came relatively quickly (about 10 days to NJ), well packaged and nothing was broken.

I burned through one of the mocolo protectors because my phone was slightly tilted and the glue started to run towards the bottom of the screen. I tried to act quickly to toss the glass on it and got a bunch of air bubbles, so I just tossed it without even curing it with the light.

The second attempt went perfectly. I propped up the bottom of the phone with the alcohol swab I used on the first attempt, and it set the phone flat enough. Put the glue in the center, made sure there was no air bubbles in the glue, and slowly put the protector in place. Once the glue started spreading I dropped it in place and let it do it’s thing. Definitely not as easy as having the Whitestone or Amfilm frame to guide you, but it ended up applying perfectly anyways.

So… With that being said: the fingerprint sensor works perfectly. It’s just as fast as it was with the LK TPU protector on it, and I didn’t even have to redo my prints. Once I apply my DBrand skin I’ll see how the protector works with my case, and hopefully it doesn’t push up the glass. At this point that’s the only thing left to worry about, because a tight case can ruin everything.

Here are the product links. I used the 2nd link for the install so far, but they're pretty much identical.

Not all of the camera protectors cause an issue with a flash. If the cutout is big enough, you won't have that problem at all.
That's where your wrong.

Lk swapped from a smaller circle cutout to a bigger teardrop style.

Yes the bigger cutout helps but the the underlying issue persists where the light bleeds the edges of all the glass causing the glare

Don't know what to tell you, but I don't have that problem. I'm using the one that came with the Aacl tempered glass and I don't have any glare issues even in a pitch black room. I'm waiting on the Rhinoshield ones and hopefully they're just as good.

Do you have a link to these? Sorry if I missed it!

and the feeling is ok? I really don't want to use a protector, haven't since Nexus days and never had a scratch since, but don't want to take the chance ... those aren't sold in CA , I wonder if these are the same but different seller's name
Yes. The old school TPU protectors felt like leather (rough, textured) but these look and feel like glass (very smooth, and no texture).

I will switch to 9H tempered glass once it becomes more readily available, but for now, these are much much better than the older TPU protectors.

The fingerprint sensor works every time with these protectors as well.

The link you provided looks like the same type of kit and overall picture, so you might be right about same product diff company.

OK, so I bought from eBay the linked TGSP (from pages ago) that has the solid blob of glue over the fingerprint reader. It was like 3 protectors for $16 USD

So I pulled off the armorsuit tpu, and put on the glass, squished the blob down hard for a minute, increased touch sensitivity in settings, and added another fingerprint with the glass in place. The fingerprint reader works nearly 9/10 times. Good enough.

Was it worth it...?

It all comes down to personal preference in benefits vs risk, advantages vs disadvantages.
For me, tonight -- because I reserve the right to change my mind! -- the obvious drawback of having a noticeable circular aberration is tempered by the added insurance of screen protection. Some of you may argue that's any TGSP is excessive or unnecessary, but I've had various shattered <$10 screen protectors convince me otherwise. For me, the better question is whether TPU is good enough, and I have an LK TPU ready to go should I indeed tire of noticing the blob. Which brings me to my answer, which is admittedly swayed by the novelty of having this product on for the duration of typing this post...

The answer for me is YES.
...
For now.

    Horror stories? Jesus, calm the hell down. I've had Whitestone dome glass on every one of my top end phones, and it's amazing. You are not going to damage your display , where do you come up with this nonsense? As a matter of fact, I'm rocking the Samsung Note 10 whitestone dome glass right now on my P6P. Yes it isn't curved but it covers the screen quite well and it's an amazing touch/feel experience to use every day. Fingerprint scanner is fine and I'm on the SQ1D.211205.017 update.

    Please, stop talking about stuff you have no experience with.
    The only one here making a drama is you. I merely asked a calm question because of experiences others had. And no, for hecks sake, I will never - ever - ever - ever stop talking about any topic I deem interesting. It is not up to you to decide whether or not people have "the right" to talk about stuff that you claim they have no "experience about".

    Imagine we talk about Tesla owners - they reported hardware defects - now I get asked: What do you think about Teslas - and I answer: Mh, there are people that had hardware defects... that might be an issue.

    Now you would come in any say "don't talk about that because it's not your personal experience" - what the heck. That is not a line of argument, that is an excuse to censor criticism and thoughts you don't like. You don't need to personally experience something to be able to talk about it. I don't need to personally burn my finger on a hot stove in order to tell people that it's a stupid idea to touch a hot stove. Again, that is not a line of argument ("stop talking about stuff you have no experience with"), that's ridiculous.

    Besides, I actually never made any "claims" of my own, I merely mentioned that I heard other peoples stories, which definitely and factually renders your "request" absolutely mind-boggling. Since simply referring to other peoples experiences can under no circumstances be considered as a personal statement (even IF I had made such a statement, your words would still be without sense).

    Just for reference purpose, as an example someone that had one of those "horror story" problems with whitestone

    -> https://forums.androidcentral.com/s...val-fail-portion-left-need-ideas-removal.html

    "My Note 10 removal disaster was 5 months ago, just looking for an alternative for a different phone. Still traumatized from that!"

    "no matter how careful I was all 4 sides cracked before complete removal."

    "But what I had to do to remove one from my almost new Note 10+ was terrifying."
    Please, enlighten me how this is possible. According to your own statement, such a thing would never happen. It's "nonsense" - as a matter of fact, it is not.

    After watching the WhitestoneDome remove their UV screen protector off the pixel 6 pro, and comparing it to my experience with the removing the Mocolo TGSP from AliExpress, it's very evident that the Mocolo adhesive glue is very bad. I was able to remove the Mocolo one with my Pinky finger nail - and it lifted up with incredible ease. But after watching Whitestone, it should actually be more difficult to remove a UV cured screen protector.

    Goes to show, the Mocolo one has bad glue adhesion.

    anyone having intermittent fingerprint scanner issues with the mowei/amazon glass screen protectors? worked much more consistently before with a plastic protector. installation seemed to go perfectly fine, looks pristine. seems to only work about half the time even after deleting and re-doing my fingerprints. worth installing again?

    edit: reinstalled with a stack of quarters over the fingerprint scanner area during the initial cure and seems to be at least better, if not fixed entirely. we'll see how it goes.
    I didn't use any weight and mine still works very well with the fingerprint scanner. Hard to give a number, but maybe 90-95% success rate???

    Just take it off. It's no problem. The glue that comes in the packet is so bad you can remove it from the glass and install again, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    I use actual LOCA on all my installs, which, contrary to some posts here, removes just fine, but require more finesse installing. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01B2ZLB5O

    No problem with any lifting/bothering with my Spigen Tough Armor.

    And what The "rode" Warrior said 😉
    I echo this review. Easiest LOCA assembly I've ever done, including Whitestone and AMFilm. FPS works just as well as without any protector. No extra glue seeping out from under glass. Hopefully it holds up.

    Well, I don't carry diamonds in my pocket. Keys, yes; a lighter maybe based on the party. :)

    The LK TPU protector mentioned a few times is the bomb. After a day, I can't tell it is on the screen. Finger glides across just fine. FPR works fine. No blur. Easy installation.

    Bought last week this one https://m.de.aliexpress.com/item/10...er_id=c48d9edf02c84f368fef07df4672e3c5&is_c=N

    It works flawless,feels also really good and it works with the fingerprint reader.
    It's maybe a millimeter or a half to small but that's okay
    Here a small video how it works with the fingerprint reader.

    Why? It blows my mind...
    Thanks for confirming my suspicion that I would want to add you to my ignore list.

    I have the Spigen Neoflex applied to my test Pixel 6 Pro and it fits perfect. And for the case I went Ringke Matte.

    Hello all -
    I've been following this thread closely as quality tempered glass screen protectors are important to me. P6P will be my first curved screen, so I was disappointed to learn that it's a pain to find quality glass protectors for them.

    I sent an inquiry to Whitstone Dome 1 week ago asking about availability for P6P screen protectors. They just now responded to me that they should release a product in mid-January 2022.
