    This glass screen protector made it since I bough the phone back in October. Now it looks like it's starting to show fine cracks. I'll try out that white dome. [​IMG]

    just wondering, are the cracks coming from no where or have you been abusing the phone again :p Its only been six months. seems to me you should not be getting any fine cracks so soon.

    Installation is not as difficult as it looks.. I watched a few videos to get familiar and it really went down smoothly... Keep us posted

    BK - Did you get these, the 3D sounds good. I got one off of Amazon but not 100% pleased, thick and requires lot more pressure to get the screen to respond to touch

    I tried a non 3D one and it was okay ...but just spent the extra cash and got the White Dome which has no dot matrix and adhesive on whole screen ..

    I looks like you apply an adhesive and then the glass ? The application jig seems like it would make for a good fit. Hmmmm.

    Yes exactly... It looks complicated but it's not bad at all... I've done about 5 installs different phones and love the protection.. glass is smooth like using nothing...

    Is the DOT matrix I now see from my protector? I only see it when my top is off my Jeep and the sun is blazing....

    That sounds like it... usually not a big distraction.. My only complaint with Edge adhesive screen protectors is they get dust underneath...

    Both my pixel2xl and my wifes S9+ have edge adhesion and in less than a week on the respective phones "stuff" has gotten in/under the SP's.
    I don't even see any point (probably will just to have a spare) of pursuing a warranty. we'll see.
