    I have this one. Works really well, went on easy and once dry no slippage.
    I got it until I could decide on a tempered glass option.

    I never really had problems with my screens. on my note 3, I used a zagg but only after a couple of dimes scratched the screen. put the change in the wrong pocket :-( the zagg hid the damage. got it at best buy after the associate took his keys and started hammering his phone with it on it. my note 5 had one but I just dont remember where I got it. I believe it is tempered glass. never had a problem and the phone still look like new. note 8 still does not have protection.

    IQ Shied screen protector on for a few days. Easy to install. Bubbles and so on disappear overnight. It's a polymer protector, not glass. S pen leaves some streaks but they disappear. Slight

    Razor blade and cut the corners like a surgeon. Actually I hacked at them in the dimly lit basement of my mother's home which is my abode. The IQ Shield settled down and has been wonderful for 2 entire days.

    I like the IQ shied I suppose. I'd prefer a perfect tempered glass protector for like $3.00 but that doesn't exist yet. Dagnabit! Till then, IQ is it brah.

    I have a Whitestone Dome. IMO, it is the best screen protector for the Note 8 bar none. It is expensive and has a unique install procedure. If installed correctly, it is perfect. You don't notice it is there. It is clear and the Note 8 is as responsive as if it was naked. The S Pen glides across it. I have it coupled with a Spigen Neo Hybrid. It is a killer combination.

    did a quick google search and found it on amazon. you are right, it is very expensive. more that what you pay at the service providers and those are expensive too.

    True, it is expensive. But after you spend your money and find out that other types of SP just don't work, the cost of the Dome is not that expensive. Besides, you probably spent close to $1000 for the Note 8 and $45 is not that much to protect it and use it as intended.

    that is the thing about screen protectors, you really don't know if they are going to work these days because of the edge. you are right, 45 is not that much...if it works.

    So this morning I wanted to show off the IQ Shield's healing properties and brandished the s pen. I scribbled a huge "S" like a confident boss. Long story short, the s is still there. Liking the IQ Shield less day by day. Starting to wonder if these protectors are even necessary.
