There have been early reports of screen protectors blocking the display fingerprint sensor from working elsewhere. Seems like a number of them have already been pulled from the market.

Yea I got one of the curved glass ones and the Fingerprint Reader doesn't work, item now not for sale on amazon.
I suppose they only had space models or cad drawings to go on before release.

I can report that with the Oxilar tempered glass screen protector the fingerprint sensor does not work. Getting an amFilm tempered glass screen protector in a couple of days and will report back on how that one does.
You need a UV glue glass screen protector. That will work fine with an optical reader but noone seems to be making one for the P6P!

What do you think iswrong with the Spigen neoflex? I dont mind it as an early screen protector.
Using the supplied squeegee, it left terrible marks all over the screen. So I thought, ok their squeegee sucks balls, I'll try the other tpu with the og method with a hard card covered with cloth. Same result, marks and scratches all over. Mind you I used the whole bottle of liquid for both.
I didn't even attempt the LK one because they gave the same exact 'squeegee' which was weird. But I did use the camera tgsp they include and so far no problems with a Spigen case and taking pictures.

I used a few squirts of liquid and worked the bubbles out with their squeegy. There were a few marks and it was pretty cloudy but both disappeared in an hour or so once it was all dried. The fit is decent. It has same compromises as most film protectors have - slightly rubber and very slight orange peel look when viewed from acute angle but it is pretty solid first screen protector for me.

Ah... I did not bother waiting that long. I waited about 5-15 minutes for each.
Also, I should mention that the one from Skinomi, they also give the same squeegee. I just like how theirs is so easy to get right with no liquid.

Screen protectors like the neoflex that are wet install dry clearer than they go on. They also self heal to a pretty high degree. Like today I was trying out the Razer Kishi and folded up one of the corners of the Spigen pretty badly, it went back on and rehealed no problem. Wouldn't be my first choice of protector style but this one is working out OK for me for a while. I would be happy to have it on for weeks or months until something better comes along.

I'm using the Skinomi tpu. Flawless installation process, but I'd much rather have a tgsp.

Don't try the spigen one it's crap. Same as the one from LK
I've just applied the Spigen NeoFlex Optical Film and it works flawlessly on my P6 Pro - bought from Amazon UK for £11.99. I briefly tested a TGSP with the adhesive on the edges and that was really terrible.

With these film type protectors, It is all about the application (I have applied plenty of wet screen protectors). One must then be patient and wait a day or so - all the water and bubbles (if any) magically disappear. I have a flawless application, even the slightly curved edges have adhered perfectly and its' crystal clear. Touchscreen works just fine, as does the optical fingerprint reader. IQ Shield also have a similar offering for the P6P but I couldn't find any listing in the UK and didn't fancy waiting for it to arrive from the US after paying $26 with postage.

Do you happen to have the Amazon UK link for it by any chance?

    Pretty good video showing the install process for LOCA protectors that don't have an install rig etc. Of course, go with the curing times listed in the instructions vs what is the video. Also, do use electrical tape or something similar to block all the ports, as the others have mentioned.

    A few weeks ago, I got this TPU screen protector from Amazon. I screwed up installing the first one but managed to apply the second one OK.

    Today, I just took out the P6P from its box (not using it yet because I was traveling these past 2 weeks and did not have enough time to set it up) and it looks like cr*p! There are bubbles everywhere and one line at the bottom that looks like a wide bubble. This thing sucks!

    I'm glad I got a refund from Amazon after screwing up the first one because I was NOT happy with it.

    Now where are the good tempered glass ones? Given what happened to my 4 XL on my trip (long story short: thank goodness I had a TGSP on or my screen would be shattered!), I'm not taking any chances with the P6P. It sucks because I would like to use my shiny new toy :(

    Guys, when you apply the glass over the LOCA, do NOT move it around or press on it. That's the worst damn thing you can do!

    Put the LOCA in the center of the screen. Hold the protector diagonally, where the bottom edge is lined up where it should be on the phone and lower it down SLOWLY. When it makes contact with the glue and starts to spread, then slowly finish lowering it, but do NOT put pressure on it. The glue spreads on its own. Don't touch it, and it won't flow over the sides or into the ear piece.

    DON'T. Touch. The. Protector.

    DON'T. Put. Any. Pressure. On. It.

    I wonder if it's worth buying the note 10 plus Whitestone dome glass for the pixel 6 pro ??as everyone is saying the note 10 plus screen protectors are fitting the pixel 6 pro perfect ...
    Doesnt work. I tried a cheap Note 10+ UV TGSP and it was slightly too big at the sides.

    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.

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

    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.

    L4k tpu arrived today from Amazon UK. A month earlier than originally forecast .
    Usual easy installation and can't tell it's there once fitted.
    I used these on my umi and they are pretty solid as far as tpu protectors go.
    Came with a glass camera lens. Not sure I'll use that.

    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.

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