    I'm convinced. Going to place my order through Amazon.

    Hopefully I can report back as a happy customer. I'm gonna get the Nexus 7 one first and if I really like it ill order one for my Nexus

    Don't rush on the Galaxy Nexus - I may increase the cut size.

    You will love the Nexus 7 - all of our Tablet screen protectors are great. Especially for Galaxy Note people since they are completely hard like glass.

    Hopefully, looking forward to getting this screen protector. Got high hopes for it lol

    As for the galaxy Nexus I am hoping for a fuller cut but that's obviously up to you

    Looks like my screen protector should be coming later today. Review to follow....


    Edit:

    So just received and installed the screen protector. It must be me, but the protector was hard to align to my liking. I thought when installing the screen protector on my old Xoom was a bit easier for whatever reason.

    Packaging:
    1. One of the cheaper packed screen protectors I've seen and for the price, I was expecting more protection for it. Instead you get a piece of construction paper with regular thin plastic packaging to protect it
    2. Alot of protectors with this price tag give two protectors, so kinda disappointed I only get one, but I knew it would only be one.
    3. Comes with solution, but no type of card to work the bubbles out with...
    4. My protector was horizontal to the packaging itself so it bent a bit. I hope the rest aren't packaged like this.

    Initial impressions:
    1. High quality screen protector, no doubt about it.
    2. It's a very smooth protector, definitely smoother than any other I've used, but smoother as glass? Initial impressions for me prove otherwise, still like the feel of glass better.
    3. Doesn't seem to attract fingerprint too much, better than the SGP on my Nexus, but that's putting an almost one year old screen protector vs brand new too (I never believed in the "no fingerprint" things)
    4. Doesn't interfere with my case, wasn't expecting it to, but good to know it doesn't
    5. No matter how much I try to flatten the edges they just won't stay down for now, and but hopefully they do when it dries. I didn't have this problem with my SGP on my Galaxy Nexus

    Some stupid error on my part, didn't realize the camera cutout has plastic over it, now I have to remove the top to remove it which I don't want to go through again. Not that I use the camera on this Nexus 7 anyway, but just saying.

    Overall so far, and there is some bubbling that I couldn't work out that'll have to dry out, I'm pretty happy with it so far. Definitely the smoothest protectors I've put on and makes me realize the SGP on my Nexus is well.... there. You can definitely tell there is a screen protector on with Just Like Glass, but I bought it for the hope of it being smooth and it is.

    I'll have a detailed review after a few days of use.

    Guru, if you want more feedback or anything let me know.

    Good review. I like to read constructive reviews like this.

    As far as the packaging goes I do have plans on putting it into something more high end but I have to buy them in lots of 10,000 pieces. We we not big enough yet to justify it. We do make sure than they all are shipped in a box so the protectors don't get damaged.

    The construction paper is there to make sure that nothing dents or affects the screen protector. We do include a spray bottle so we try to make sure everything arrives in perfect condition.

    As far as the hard card, we don't include one because ZAGG has a patent on it. I am currently working on something that will be superior to what ZAGG uses but in the meantime you get the same result by using a credit card wrapped in the high end cloth we include.

    The protector shouldn't be horizontal to the packaging at all. I've never heard of that happening before.

    All of our protectors are made in the USA and packaged by hand. So sometimes someone messes up and if it damages the protector I always replace them free.

    Keep pressing the sides down for 5-7 days. I've installed alot of these and they should adhere unless you have a curved screen.

    Scott

    I understand where you're coming from a packaging standpoint, you're a small startup company so I can't really put that against you. I'm sure that'll turn around when your name really gets out there and I wish you the best in that.

    As for my protector being horizontal, mine was. Don't know how that happened, but hopefully you'll address that in your new style of packaging, maybe a smaller plastic bag will do. It was bent a bit, but it went onto the Nexus 7 fine other than this one edge that is being stubborn due to the protector itself being horizontal in the packaging is my guess. If it refuses to stay down I may contact you for a replacement.

    Had no idea Zagg had a patent on hardcards, I have an SGP one so I ended up using that.

    So far I am happy with the product. It's got a few marks under the screen since it's still wet, but I'll post a more constructive review hopefully by tomorrow night when it should be all dried up. Just wanted to give my initial impressions of your product for yours and others review. This is the first "small name" company I've gone with and for the most part, so far so good.

    The packaging is weird because people complain we pack them too tight.

    As far as packaging we can send them out this way without a problem but I've wanted packaging since I first starting selling them. I package all of our cases in high quality packaging. However since we are a new company and working with a tight budget it's not feasible. Hopefully in the near future I'll be able to professionally package all of them with our own method of getting the water and bubbles out.

    ZAGG does have the patent and I'm an attorney so I want to avoid needless litigation of licensing fees. There is a giant thread on XDA called DBA "Just Like Glass®" Screen Protector - ZAGG Killer?.


    I know ZAGG is aware of the thread and we have some very suspicious posts and on the Galaxy S3 Amazon product page some very strange one star reviews (16 5 star, two one star). Right now we are ants compared to ZAGG who ships 50,000 protectors a day. However I know small company's that have been absorbed by them and don't want to give them leverage by violating a patent. I have an excellent idea for something far better than the hard card and I'm pricing it out right now. If we order these then we'll order packaging at the same time.

    Let me know how the installation goes and if there are any problems I'll have a new one sent out.

    Sounds good Scott.

    I for one can already tell you this is much better than the zagg invisibleshield. I'll give this stubborn corner a few days and see how it goes, I but you definitely have yourself a great product here.


    And as I said detailed review to come hopefully by tomorrow.
