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?

    I just received a liquid protector but this is my first time using such a protector and need some guidance with the stickers to protect the speaker ports. Is that for the top speaker/ear speaker or the bottom firing speaker? Do you need to cover the power and volume buttons too? Also, how do you remove the stickers once you place the glue on the screen and then the glass? Any guidance would be extremely appreciated. Thank you.
    Cover them all, buttons, sim tray , ports , ear grill etc. Make sure none of the glue gets in them because it's nasty to remove. Use quite strong tape also so the glue doesn't get underneath if it spills over. With the top ear grill you have to only cover it slightly so the protector goes on properly, if you put too much tape over it then the protector wont fit at the bottom.

    finally recurved the Mocolo glass from AliExpress - bought 2x 2 pack, only received one so make sure if you order from them! LOCA glue is a ***** so I would definitely tape all sides. once that **** leaks into any crevices, it keeps leaking out! took like 30 minutes of wiping. that said, the application went on smoothly with no bubbles on the first try. pretty much comes right up to the case I have on so I have full protection!

    You only put the tape over the ear grill up to where the glass would start so a strip of tape over the ear grill then wrapped over the back of phone.
    Really appreciate you! Thank you so much. Will try once I find some good tape.

    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.

    Do you think packing tape is sufficient?
    Hmmm, not sure. Maybe electrical tape and I've used Gorilla tape for the ear grill before. It's got to be sticky enough that liquid can't get underneath. You just need to be careful as the glue doesn't always spill.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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