The protector looks good when in place and feels natural to the touch; I also can't see any touch recognition issues at all.
However, there are a few downfalls which means I don't think I'd buy this product again.
Firstly, the protector doesn't actually cover the whole of the front of the phone. There is a space as can be seen in the pictures which remains uncovered at the top, and it also doesn't quite cover to the bottom and round the sides all the way. This means that dust and excess glue is easily able to collect right at the top where the glass is fitted by the speaker. Other protectors work around this by covering the whole surface meaning at least the dust accumulates in less noticeable places.
Secondly, the amount of waste here borders on the absurd and it's hard to ignore. As far as I can see you can't buy replacement/booster packs, which only provide the consumables such as the protector itself, the alcohol wipes, glue etc. This means everything contained in the box, including the light, a ton of plastic and other bits are waste after using once. Being able to buy replacement packs would help here by firstly being cheaper in the long run, and secondly making the first main pack re-usable.
Thirdly, as touched upon above, is the price. I don't see quite how it's such a step above much cheaper versions with dry stick glue. The purpose of spending the money on this one is for the cleaner fit, but it isn't cleaner as mentioned above with the accumulative dust and other issues. Cheaper ones may be slightly less strong, but they still protect the screen in the vast majority of cases and often look cleaner with the entire front covered.
Ultimately as clever as this product, it needs improvement in order to justify the high price. Find a way to cover the entire front and provide a way to re-purchase the consumables as an extra pack.
The fit isn't quite edge to edge, but covers enough to feel that way and at the same time leave enough space to accommodate most cases.
Unlike other glass protectors for curved screens, this one adheres using the full surface area of the glass (instead of thin adhesive lines along the perimeter). What you get is a solid fitment, no bubbles or corners lifting up. No rainbow effect.
After a month of use, the oleaphobic coating is still strong--only picking up slight fingerprints which easily wipe away without just smearing the oils around. The glass is still clear, no signs of scratching or lifting.
The preparation and application require a bit more effort than the peel and stick alternatives, but the result is far better. Read the directions and watch an installation video prior to installing.
I highly recommend this product and have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. I can't even harp on the price because it's so Superior to others in the marketplace.
The first one for my s8+ installed like a charm , I then had the misfortune of dropping my phone face first and the dome glass screen protector cracked while protecting the screen 100%.
The second one also installed without a hitch & was on my phone up until i had to get my phone replaced due to a manufacturing defect.
After getting my replacement s8+ i ordered a third , which developed several air bubbles at the point of installation, even though i carried out the installation process according to the video guide , just as I had with the first 2, but obviously that product was faulty , but as there was no warranty extended i had to forego that money spent and ordered a 4th.
The fourth is on my s8+ to date and is absolutely great, but I must say that although certain spigen covers are recommended to use with the dome glass screen protector DOES NOT work with any of the spigen covers. I have tries the tough Armour, slim Armour, hybrid & neo hybrid and they all created problems over time. The current case Im using is the Samsung alcantara caver and the samsung silicone cover.
Finally, having spent a huge amount of money on various different screen protectors including olixar, zagg invisible shield and other cheaper products and none have worked with the s8+.
The white stone dome glass screen protector is by far the best and imo the only tempered glass screen protector that actually works with the s8plus.
1 thing do want to know is it still water proof will the glass come off in water ?????
installation complicated might not work well but you get 2 bottles of adhesive in case of unsuccessful try. my issue is light seems to bleed from all the sides of the glass giving it some yellowish hue to the edges. bit annoying but tolerable.
At last to anyone want to try this product be very careful when you drop the glass on the screen make sure you do it slow and look for the edge make sure it fit and you will have a perfect tempered glass for your galaxy s8 8+.
Once I this, I made sure the environment was dust free, took my time with the installation, making sure that I was watching the video and following instructions to the letter, and most importantly the table was level.
I cleared the installation on the first attempt. The feeling of the glass is awesome, no issue with discoloration, no bubbles, no dust.
By far the best tempered glass I've worked with and surely well worth the investment.
My phone now feels a bit more secure :-)
I followed the MobileFun installation video TO THE LETTER! And had no issues at all with the installation process. I did however get a few random bubbles on my first attempt, I contacted MobileFun and they sent me out a replacement the very next day! Second attempt I had no bubbles at all and the screen protector has been spot on!
So in summary, you'll have this on your phone probably for the duration you'll own it unless you drop it and break it so really this is a one off cost to protect your screen for the duration of ownership so the price is a drop in the ocean for the peace of mind you'll get :)
But unfortunately it breaks very easily. I have had two of these, and both have broken within the first 24 hours (after the application/setting period). The way it functions is more important than the way it is applied. So that's why it only gets 2 stars.
I can only see copycats now creating competing products like this one so the price is definitely going to fall, which is good.
I dont think it is worj money at this time. I would be happy with a £15 price tag.
in the end result was perfect no glue on the sides of phone, screen looks flawless, no fluff sticking to to any of the edges like with my previous screen protectors and my case fitted good too as there is quite a bit room on the corners and sides.
Thanks to mobilfun for stocking this item.
MobileFun were great with the turn around, keeping me informed of the updates of the arrival from the supplier and then the delivery date. I certainly will be revisiting them for my next piece of tech!
I contacted Mobilefun's customer services and they sent me out more glue free of charge, it arrived a couple of days later. Very impressive!!
This time I used the Bubble Level App to level up the phone in the tray before releasing the glue. All went perfectly.
If you watch the Whitestone video right until the end you will see a couple of clips about levelling.
I've used the screen protector now for 3 or 4 days and it is perfect.
I did everything according to the instructions BUT for some weird reason the adhesive leaked from both (opposite) sides of the phone after the adhesive spread 100%. I did not press the protector or did anything to make the leak happen. The adhesive was dead center of the phone when I lowered the protector per instructions.There is absolutely nothing I could have done to prevent the leak.
I finished the installation and let the phone settle for good 12 hours before further inspection. In the Morning I noticed about 3cm long string of air bubbles on the other side of the protector. This must have happened beacuse of the adhesive leak. Took the protector out later since it looked terrible.
Mobilefun support just said that something has gone wrong with the installation. Thank you! That was so helpful!
A curved glass screen protector for the galaxy phones that actually works.
I had watched a few YouTube videos about this product ( and i had to have one ) when i saw that mobile fun where going to be stocking it , i put an order in and waited .
Now that i have got , i have to say that it's absolutely brilliant.
If you take your time and follow the instructions, it's easy , but very rewarding to fit.
It's a bit pricey,but I suppose its a drop in the ocean bearing in mind the cost of the phone!
I think it would be good if you could get a glass and glue refil pack, as you could reuse all the other stuff in the box.
Don't mess around with any of the other brands with glue on the sides , like i did originally, you'll be wasting your money
