Anyone who currently owns an LG G2 knows the frustration of not being able to use a Tempered glass screen protector.
(yes there are many on the market but none of them fit 100%)

This is due to the "2.5D" screen glass, with its curved edges.

A Flat piece of glass just simply does not fit over a curved one.

The Note 4 has this same type of screen with curved edges, as does the iPhone 6.


All the major players in tempered glass screen protectors have said they are looking into it.


Think anyone can figure out how to make a curved glass screen protector to fit?

better to say as same as S3 (don't compare SAMSUNG GALAXY with apple iphone :D)
i remember the solution for screen protectors for S3 was small size.
i mean not edge to edge protector.
but for temp-glass...
maybe some glass + plastic i mean plastic for edge of screen and glass for front
two types of material in one protector !!!
i think its possible! (maybe :confused:)

There are already tempered protectors being sold on eBay, I've just ordered mine, they also state the 2.5D part too, we'll see what it's like when it arrives (a week or two after I actually get it, if it arrives on day one)

so the note4 has the same curved screen type as the note2? that's essentially what this 2.5D is right?

Well, my protector has arrived, wayyyyy before the device has.
I thought it was just going to be Note 3 protector rebadged, but it isn't, it wouldn't fit the Note 3, but until my 4 arrives, I can't see what the fit is like.

Here's the eBay item number, 271590976896 can't send the link as eBay have either removed the "Share" button or hidden it extremely well in the last update.

Does using tempered glass affect the fingerprint scanner?

Sent from the TermiNOTEr 2! ?

    I decided to grab Tech Armor's Ballistic glass protector on Amazon, thankfully it's not one that overhangs the curve. I have to wait until Saturday for my Spigen Tough Armor to show up and see how well they look together.

    But so far, no complaints. The glass covers the sensors and front camera, but doesn't impede their function at all from what I've tested.

    Numerous people here in Australia have been fitting a screen protector with NO HALO or other issues .
    But as we all know it can only do that by covering the 'screen" area which Does NOT include the Bezel area.
    The "Screen" and "Bezel" are 2 different things !! ( even though they are 1 covering piece of glass). I doubt even iloome will be able to build 1 that fits on the N4 the same as they did for the iphone 6 for a number of reasons I wont elaborate on here.

    The one people are using is this-
    Nillkin Amazing H+ Anti-Explosion Tempered Glass Screen Protector
    I see a few people a 1/2 dozen or so pages back in this thread are also using this SP.

    Here are some pictures of the Nillkin Amazing H+ Tempered Glass that is applied on my Note 4

    As you can see, it doesn't cover the entire screen area because can only stick to the flat side of the screen to prevent getting the halo effect around the curved edges. You may not like the end result because it sort of becomes a 'double curved edge' glass LOL! But with the case on, its not too bad. The 2.5D curved finish on the Nillkin does help make swiping easier edge to edge and will not hinder the use of home button/finger print scanner. The glass itself is thin enough despite being 0.3mm thick.

    If you have a white Note 4, the glass may not be as obvious as with the black Note 4.

    In terms of screen clarity, its a 100% to my eyes. It doesn't seem to create glare. I was using it in the sun or directly underneath bright LED lighting, it didn't bother me. The 'finger feel' is exactly like the original screen. There's an oleophobic coating and you get that 'oily smooth' feel. Feels exactly like real glass, knocks like real glass too. Have been using it for the entire day, happy to report it doesn't collect finger print or grease at all. Minimal face oil after a long phone call but a simple wipe in the pants pocket and its crystal clear again.

    Overall I'm very happy with the Nillkin. Makes me think what additional benefits the more expensive brands like Spigen bring to the table. Or maybe with time, the vendors could bring a full 100% coverage solution.

    I thought post 178 showed that the tech armor glass was ok. I was about to order one as the one i bought from "redpeppercase" on ebay was mentioned that it left a halo all around.

    Perhaps he didn't get the same TS that I did? They have 3 versions. Perhaps I got a rare good one? Perhaps he just hates TS as he didn't post pics of it being "junk"? Who knows...
    Mine is still working perfectly, I've even gotten used to the gap between it and my case (Spigen ToughArmor), well, until Iloome's curved version is released anyways.
    Here's some more pics of it, pardon the crappy lighting.

    Here is my reply from a Bear Motion vendor on amazon. For less than $10 you bet I'm buying one.
