    Because of the screen having a radiused edge.. I fear that there won't be any really great screen protectors for the turbo. I've been looking and looking.. Nodda... At least as far as glass... Perhaps a military shield.. But i like the clarity and feel of the glass..

    I do agree. Another reason there is limited options is because it's a Verizon exclusive though I would expect the Moto Maxx would help that.

    If you read their reviews though... There are so many complaints about the fit of the protectors.. On one.. A few claim that it doesn't match the camera and other areas.. As far as hole placement..

    Both are HD Plastic, not Temepered Glass, so I would not be interested personally. I have used plastic protectors and they do two things, first they DO scratch and eventualy get a "haze" where your fingers spend most of their time, and second, they offer no shatter protection compared to tempered glass. They will allow most of the initial impact to penetrate to the glass surface below and result in the screen cracking. Tempered glass instead will take most of the initial impact and shatter itself, often saving the actual display glass.

    They can be wiped/scrubbed and cleaned for a while. I can easily get 6-12 months out of one (and they come in packs of 3)...2+ months now and it looks like new . OK, they don't protect shatters - you have a FREE replacement. I like the feel as well, and anti-glare/anti-fingerprint works really well.

    Yes. Problem is that it is edge to edge. Ideally this is great. However, turbo screen is flat until mostly the edge.... Then it drops off gently. Result in that edge to edge glass screen protector does not adhere around the edge.
    The verizon one is cut just right.... Problem with that one is that it does not have beveled edges. Hope this helps

    I agree, mostly. The Verizon one could have been cut a bit larger. It's way too short from top to bottom. I think it could even be slightly wider but as you clearly pointed out since the glass on the turbo slopes off on the edges it does present a problem with rigid screen protectors if they're cut too wide.

    The edges of the Verizon "Flexible Glass" protector are unfortunately not only not beveled, they're even a bit sharp. This isn't going to cut your fingers every time you use the phone but that sharp "cut glass" is prone to chipping.

    And of course it's not "Tempered Glass" so it's appeal and value is further diminishes IMHO.

    Overall, I'd sooner go with one that's cut wider and with beveled edges.

    Agree. I don't mind the very narrow halo, barely noticeable. Had it for about 2 months
