    I keep reading about screen protectors that don't fit or get bubbles etc. I don't want the glass hard ones. I'm looking for a this layer that it for scratch prevention mainly.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Any reason against tempered glass? I have the intelliarmor I stalled on my 6p. You can't tell it's there.

    I haven't used it in a couple of phones. Maybe it's thinner/better now. My last on (only one) was stiff and thick. I hated it. So, just going off of old past experiences.

    I just put on a Spigen GlastR on an iPhone 7 and am very jealous that they don't make one for the Google Pixel. It's super thin, especially compared to what I've seen/used in the past.

    I have this cheap brand on my Pixel now and have already asked for a refund. The first screen protector cracked while trying to install while I was working out a bubble near the edge, so I emailed their support and immediately gave me a refund. I just threw the second one on and the edge isn't resting on the phone at all. YooTec, stay away from that brand, even though it got good reviews on Amazon, I wouldn't trust it anymore.

    I've used the thinner non-glass screen protectors and I definitely can't go back to those no matter how many good reviews it gets. Nothing better than a glass screen protector so I either opt for that or just use the device naked.

    Since the top and bottom edges of the LG V20 is slightly curved, most tempered glass screen protectors I've seen don't cover the entire screen unfortunately, The ones that do have some rainbow effect in the middle according to Amazon reviews.

    I've read that the Spigen one is pretty good but also doesn't cover the entire screen.

    I went with a a regular screen protector that is wet application. So far I'm liking it. Covers the entire screen and it doesn't attract fingerprints.
