Missing cutouts
If you want to use the Hello function then don't bother with this protector. The cut out for the proximity sensor is missing. This causes two problems, 1. The Hello activation rarely works. 2. When finishing a call and taking phone away from ear, the sensor does not detect this and the screen stays blank. You have to then lock screen and unlock to get the display back. Conversely if you answer the phone and then put it to your ear the display and speaker stay on. So no privacy for your calls.
It's probably great for protecting the screen, but I'm going back to a plastic protector as at least if the cut out is missing (and that is also often) I can cut it out myself.
In my opinion it was a waste of time and money.

Hi Kathy

Sorry to hear you were not happy with this screen protector.

The glass doesn't usually cover the proximity sensor, but will often cover a front facing camera. Can you please contact our Customer Services team so we can investigate further.
No problem's
Ordering was easy & promptly delivered. Would definitely recommend.

Easy to apply. Screen response is not different without protection! Recommend this product. Great fast reliable service.
Does the job, but has its drawbacks
This comes well packaged with cleaning materials and instructions. Fitting is easy, take your time and make sure everything is clean.

In normal conditions the screen is just as readable as it was without the protector fitted - you really wouldn't know it was there. In bright sunshine, though, there is some increase in reflectivity, enough that you have to turn away from the light to see the screen comfortably.

I found a small but noticeable loss in touch sensitivity towards the edges of the screen, in about the outside centimetre. It doesn't make the phone unusable, far from it, but for example the Home button requires a distinct tap rather then just a touch. The inner part of the screen is unaffected and the feel is as smooth as the original screen.

It is reassuring knowing that, if the worst happens, you stand a good chance of just replacing the protector instead of an expensive repair, and much of the time you won't even notice the protector is fitted. If you use the phone a lot as a tablet, as I do, then you might notice differences in touch and reflectivity. It doesn't spoil the phone, it just takes the edge off the experience of using it a little. Whether that's worth the reassurance only you can decide.

In the end, I decided to remove the protector and see whether I was imagining the effects: I wasn't, the improvement in touch and reflectivity without the protector was small, but it was there. For now I have left it off, but I may change my mind. For what it's worth, removing the protector was as easy as applying it: just put a fingernail under a corner and lift very gently, and the protector will slowly unpeel itself from the screen. There are no marks or residue left behind.

This is a good product, but there are drawbacks. If you value the reassurance it offers then I'd say it's well worth a try. You might not even notice the things that bothered me.
great!!!!
This is hands down the best screen protector I have ever had!!!! It goes on very easily! Did not bubble! And it is a perfect fit for my phone with no issues!!!! Will definitely purchase again!
Finally, one that works!
I have looked long and hard for a suitable glass screen protector that doesn't have a halo effect and this one finally sorts out the problem. Easy to install and very happy.
big air bubbles
Big air bubbles appear at the 4 corners of the screen after installation.
