    I emailed Zagg to see if I can return this. I didn't use it, and I won't be. I just got an email from Spigen that their screen protectors will be a while longer but still won't cover the entire screen (even their Crystal ones) so I am going to try to cancel my order for those.

    I see no acceptable reason why a FILM one can't cover more of the screen.

    Default Screen Protectors problems with IP6

    I think to be safe, for now, it's best to get some cheap temporary screen protectors and make the big purchases for high end screen protectors at a later time. It's clear these companies don't have them ready to go yet and they aren't cheap. At this rate some people will spend as much on protectors as they would to have a screen replaced at the Apple Store. After my tempered glass debacle, I'm going to rely on my Otter Box which has a raised lip around the screen and see how this all plays out.

I think later on these companies will probably once they now know how the phone looks and is, they can stretch a tiny bit more just in case if it isn't aligned it covers the whole LCD screen not talking about the bezel areas. Its just the buttom left area but like I said a tiny bit, the installers said they having little problems with the iphone 6 or 6 plus black because you can't tell where the lcd sides are....
    I had the zagg glass installed at the mall zagg kiosk. Then had to go back once as the alignment was off and you could see the active screen outside the protection when you tilted the phone to the right. Then it was correct. It now covers the complete active screen with a visible buffer around all sides.

    Well just got my 4th zagg glass installed!! And finally they aligned perfectly that it protects the active screen! Some minor specs which i already fixed but kind of messed up the corners of the protector but that doesn't bother me as long there is very minor to no specs behind the protector on the active screen! Sorry I'm very ocd with this stuff hahah hate it through!

    Unfortunately no glass screen protector will cover the entire face of the phone because of how the glass curves all around, the screen protectors will only cover the flat part of the screen

    Bull Poo! The screen has notably more area before the curve starts. Most screen protectors today cover ONLY the visible area, and just barely. This 1. makes them hard to align, and 2. you can see the edge of the protector if you are not looking directly at the screen. Just a slight twist and you get a glaring line down inside the side of your visible screen area.

    This is unacceptable. I'm not worried about covering the rounded edges of the screen, and there ARE protectors that do go over the rounded edge too. At least the protector should cover the screen better than the current one's on the market! This would allow better fit of some cases on the market and still cover the screen in a fully unseen method. no matter the angle of the phone when you view it. Plus provide an easier alignment task when applying the screen protectors.

    Major issues by the Chinese in my opinion as it seems 100% of all screen protectors are made over there these days. They just don't give a flying rip how good of a job they do!

    I got my iPhone Friday night and had Verizon put on their glass one. Honestly wasn't too happy with it. Went back to the store cause it was peeling up they put a new one on so I went back yesterday cause it happened again. Long story short I went through 3 Verizon glass ones and finally settled on a zagg hdx screen protector. Not to happy with any of them so far though as they all have a big gap between the case and the screen protector.

    That's almost exactly the same gap around the edge as my ZAGG Glass SP has. These glass products have to be installed PERFECTLY or you have one edge of the SP hanging slightly over the curvature of the screen, and aside from making OCD people like me crazy...it also makes it vulnerable to chips & actually getting caught on things & lifting off since it can't adhere to anything. Heck, it took my very friendly & equally OCD Best Buy salesman four separate installations to get it done on mine...and it's still not 100% perfect.

    All the glass SP's have a gap, and all will be a PITA to install perfectly due to the curved edges of the phone screen. Companies like iLoome have glass SPs that follow the curvature, but make it impossible to use most any case on your iPhone. Hope someone finds a way to do it right sometime soon. But, until then...

    This happened to me at Verizon to and I finally gave up. They wouldn't refund me. Done with screen protectors for now until they can perfect their designs. These things are too expensive to be lifting off so easily.

    I am waiting for an anti gloss protector. Hopefully a good will come out soon. Using the otter box right screen protector doesn't work as well with texting

    Is the HDx staying in place around the edges?

    I'll have to wait until I get home tonight but I can for sure. If you're looking at the phone straight on, it runs right along the edge of the active screen. If you tilt the phone you can see the edge of the screen protector but it's not bad. I would much rather see that than it be too big and the edges not stick because of the curved edges

Into the trash it goes and I'm out 20 bucks as Verizon won't refund me.

    UPDATE: Called in and complained to Verizon Customer Service and was refunded 7 dollars and was told this was a one time thing and they will never do me this favor again. They saw I got the protector and a replacement at my local store which was a corporate one. But honestly this was a waste of my money and a frustrating experience. 7 dollars is not cutting it for me but better than nothing.
    I suspect if you would have taken the phone in with the protector still on it and showed them the lint they would have installed another one for you since it was their screw up. I have the same problem with my Zagg shield I had put on at Best Buy- there is a piece of lint right over the battery indicator. I've tried to ignore it but I'm too OCD about my phone and every time I pick my phone up I look right at it. I'm going in there tomorrow with my receipt and show them the lint. I fully expect them to replace it. It's a shame too because the protector is aligned perfectly.

    Oh they did indeed replace it only for it to get reinstalled with more lint and peel off again all in the span of two days. I realized I was in a losing battle so I tried to get a refund but got shot down and the store clerk told me this was an exception that they were replacing it. Could I have gone to the store again for round 3? Perhaps. But the way it's constructed leaves the door wide open for the same scenario to occur again. It's really frustrating because the feel of that glass protector was quite good. The look, fit and finish, well that's why we're all here on this topic. I'm like you, can not tolerate any lint under the protector. It distracts me to no end.

    At the top is the worst. I have a spot at bottom left where the protector doesn't sit flat on the phone (not sticking). Had the same thing at the top right that I couldn't get past. But at the bottom I don't even notice it.
