Question Pixel 6 Pro screen protector

Search This thread
Searching for a full adhesive TGSP I stumbled upon this one on eBay and since it's relatively cheap I got a few to try.


It took a week to arrive and lo and behold - it's really a curved tempered glass screen protector with full adhesive layer and a black border on the sides.
It's a no name brand ( product number FHT013GPT ) but the quality is really good - the oleophobic coating is nice and there are no smudges left and the fingers glide easily.

Installation was a real pain though... Because of the curved edges you need to very carefully center it otherwise you'll get a thin and long air bubble alongside one of the sides.
There are no guide stickers in the kit so using some tape for alignment will certainly be advisable. I never had that many air bubbles getting trapped when installing a protector in the past and just pushing them out with a spudger did not do it this time. I had to press the protector in the middle with one hand while lifting the corners with a finger until it unglues past the air bubble and squeegee the air out while releasing the corner.

The end result is flawless which surprised me given all the lifting I had to do to remove the trapped air and, most of all, the fingerprint scanner works!!!
So far I have been using an Imak combo case and edge glued TGSP. The screen sensitivity, especially around the curved part, was horrible and the fingerprint scanner was not working.
Protection wise there was virtually no gap between the TGSP and the case. With this one the width is identical but there is a tiny gap of around 2mm only on the bottom.
It's almost unnoticeable but after using it for a week I see that it's enough to start accumulating some dust.

There's no cutout for the camera nor the glue is missing in that spot but there's no halo effect.
The image on the screen is probably clipped 1mm on each side by the black border.
That's better than the previously used Imak and certainly some branded ones I've used in the past.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product and the fact that the fingerprint scanner works.
This is by far my preferred option for screen protector at this time as I'm not a fan of the messy LOCA glue based ones.

Whitestone has spidered in a corner now on three different protectors. I'm getting it on perfectly so perhaps my phone as abnormal edges? I'm so disappointed as it only lasts about a week or so before this happens.

I guess because I carry my phone in a beltclip case (turtleback), I don't worry about the screen. I've had smartphones since my first one, Dell Streak 5, and because it is a glass screen, I've never bothered with a screen protector. Yeah, accidents are what they are, but I try to treat them like the EXPENSIVE piece of electronics, that they are.

I always get tempered glass because I don't like the feel of plastic...it's less smooth.


I usually order something off Amazon for like $12 and 9/10 times it works out fine. If it doesn't i leave a 1 star review and the seller refunds it. I only leave 1-2 stars when it's deserved.

Most of them are made by the same factory anyways. That's Amazon's biggest issue but like I said.. it works out fine 9/10 times. Just don't buy one with less than 50 reviews. No need to spend big for quality protection

I wish I can find this somewhere. My LOCA one has a spidering effect on the edge of the screen which is really bothering me. If you know of a US link for this, please lmk!

anyone find one that doesnt have that stupid FP circle?
I dont care if the FP reader works or not, I hate that circle
My wife and I have both been using the Whitestone Dome for roughly five months without complaints. I use the fingerprint reader all the time - my wife uses a Pattern.

Haven't you started to develop spidering effect(s) at the edges?
No neither of us have. We both also always keep our phones in the OtterBox Defender case, though.

I am also not looking for a $50 protector, cheap and no FP circle is what I am looking for

This is another good one. Lots of recommendations for it in several screen protector threads in this section. [3+2 Pack] for Google Pixel 6 Pro Screen Protector [Support Fingerprint Unlocking] 3x 3D Curved Tempered Glass & 2x Camera Lens Protector for Pixel 6 Pro 5G [Scratch & Impact Protection]

    How did you get it so flawless? Any advice/tips/tutorial?
    I took tips from the person who first posted about it.

    I managed to find a squeegee tool from and old screen protector and wherever there were bubbles left, I'd peel from the closest corner whilst holding down the centre of the protector. Once I'd gone past the bubbles, I'd make sure the squeegee tool was flat and covered the whole width of the screen and press down pretty hard until I'd gotten to the end of the phone.

    Repeat that until all bubbles are gone. It does take a little while and may seem like you won't remove them all but if you make sure you cover the entire width whilst pressing out the bubbles you should be able to like we did.

    Feel free to PM if you feel the need.

    Thanks mate. Broke one set trying to remove and realign. Ordered 2 more sets and will try again once they arrived.

    I started using the plastic screen protectors and have had no issues. Plus they are cheaper to purchase and replace. I have used glass ones in the past on previous phones with curved screens and the edges always start to peel back after a while and there is always dust and didn't that gets caught between the case and the glass.

    This is the one I have.

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

    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.

    I have ordered the same about a week or 2 ago and am awaiting its arrival. Think I posted about it in another screen protector thread and not this one (hard to keep up with all the different threads 😜). I will also report back on how it goes when it arrives.
    Ended up ordering these. They should be here by the end of the week. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

    Ok, got the screen protectors today. Things went fairly well except for 1 very tiny bubble that is barely noticeable so I went with it.

    I followed the instructions in the video provided by a QR code for the most part. The video is for another phone so I just ignored the part about removing the fingerprint sticker as there isn't one on this protector. I also did not use a weight. Not sure if that would have helped with that 1 very tiny bubble or not.

    Instead of using their stickers to cover up the speakers, etc., I used electrical tape. That stuck much better than the provided stickers. Covered up both top and bottom speakers, volume buttons and sim card tray.

    The tray is pretty nice. It really leveled out the phone so no problem with the camera bar. Inserted the provided foam cushions on 3 of the sides and the phone fit very snug and well in there.

    The protector fit fairly well also. It's a bit smaller than the actual screen (similar to all the other ones I've tried), but that allows it to not interfere with a case coming on or off (in my case Spigen Tough Armor). With the case on it's pretty much covering everything exposed.

    Front facing camera is working fine. Touch is working fine.

    And the fingerprint sensor? Well, that is working fine as well 😀. Am finally able to use it (been using a non-LOCA TGSP so haven't been able to use it till now). I enrolled both thumbs and so far each time the sensor has worked and fairly quickly. Only enrolled each thumb once. (Btw, checked to see if any of my other non-enrolled fingerprints could unlock it as has been reported a bit and they could not.)

    So in conclusion, based on my experience alone, I would recommend this protector. It comes with 3 screen protectors and 2 camera protectors (which I did not use). Also comes with 3 "bottles/viles" of LOCA, 2 sets of absorption cushions for the sides, 5 packs of wet/dry cloths and stickers, tray, and a UV light.

    All in all I'm pretty happy with it so far (it's only been about an hour since installation). Now just need to run that adb command so each time I touch the phone the screen doesn't wake 🙃.
