With the Spigen case there's a significant gap between the protector and case lip. It covers from just above the camera to just inside the lower black bar on the screen. Edges I would say you need to be pretty precise on as there may be room for a line or 2 of pixels to be exposed. I have dropped it a few times and had no issues with crack's.Update?
I'm sold by their 'Invincible' claim. The official tempered glass screen protector from OnePlus shattered from a side after hitting my laptop's edge and developed a crack from top to bottom overnight.
This prism thing looks promising. How well does it fit?
I really can't steer you away from the official OnePlus TGSP strongly enough. It's $30, AND you pay shipping (for me another $10), so it's a very premium price-tag, and in my experience a very non-premium product, and a very non-premium support team when it has problems. Keep in mind, for the same price, the competition is miles ahead in both areas (such as dbrand).
I had bubbling under my OP TGSP from the first moment I put it on. I thought I just effed it up. But today (2 months later) I got so annoyed with it I finally took it off. What I found is the bubbling was between the TGSP and the glue - NOT between the glue and the phone's screen, but between the protector and glue layer. Everyone who has issues like mine appear to be the same issue, the edges of the glue layer do not adhere to the glass protector well enough. In my attempts to fix this I kept getting more and more dust between the phone and glue, but it never got any better in the area where the glue wasn't adhered to the TGSP properly.
Not sure what I'm going to get, but after 3 weeks of convoluted and confusing emails back and forth from OnePlus support (between real people and automated responses), two weeks waiting on them to decide my TGSP is faulty, and 1 week of waiting for them to transfer the money, I finally have the $30 refund I asked for. It will not be spent on another OnePlus TGSP.
So, yeah, mine was **** for sure.

Correct all drops were accidental??Seems nice enough. I'm on a skin, so I shouldn't need to worry about any case compatibility.
On the "dropped it a few times" though, I hope you didn't intentionally drop the phone just for "testing". I can't imagine dropping my phone just to test the durability of a new screen protector.:laugh:
I'm ordering the puregear one(TMobile sells it for 40$, on eBay someone has them for 17$) and it has 2 YouTube videos from people I normally look at for accessory reviews tk bay and big unbox. Both give it a good recommendation. I'll report back once I have it.Thanks for the detail feedback. I also get the 30 dollar barrier of entry but like I said what is better, you named of some brands but I do not know if any of them cover the entire screen fit and/or do not intrude on the actual screen. I am more then happy to take a chance on OPO product if there is the chance of it working properly.
My greatest concern must be if it's case friendly! Please report back. Found them on eBay as well and I'm interested but just spent money on two different protectors and none of them were worth it, (pics of protectors applied in earlier post)
It looks like I bought this one, too. Not perfect but not worst, either. Why is it blocked? Is it because it gave away samples for review?There's no protector that's going to check all of those boxes, not a single one (and I'd add '1b. Covers entire visible screen,' making it even more difficult). I'd rather lose a column of pixels on the left and right edges than see unprotected visible display area, so I've stuck with ******* for three months.
Edit: Wasn't expecting the name to get censored, it's the one that ends with 'wind'
I just installed a PureGear tempered glass protector with my Spigen Liquid Armour case. I have to say it is worth the money to spend to get a protector that won't bubble, lift or collect finger prints. Just make sure you align it as best as you can with the edges before it reaches the black border and you're good.
Luckily with PureGear, they have the whole tray and set/press installation instead of having to align it yourself. I had the stock one on for a few days but you have to understand that it's a scratch resistant protector, not glass that will help with impact to the screen.
