    After many years of owning a phone I have never cracked a screen. I also utilize phone cases religiously. I went from an iPhone XS to a OnePlus7 Pro and I automatically fell in love with my new phone. I've had screen protectors on every single phone for the past years. Unfortunately due to the curve and finger print sensor on my OnePlus7 Pro, as most of you all know, there isn't a screen protector that works properly with the OnePlus7 Pro. So, I had to use my phone without a screen protector. Then yesterday, I had my phone in my jacket pocket. I was putting my tire back on my vehicle. I reached down under my vehicle because a Lug Nut had rolled under it, that's when my phone slid out of my jacket pocket. It fell perfectly on the screen curve of my phone then flat on its face, my heart sank. I picked it up, looked at the screen, and saw three cracks running across it. They're not really visible unless you hold the phone at an angle. The phone wasn't even a foot above the ground, but that was just enough to crack the screen. Now my beautiful phone has an ugly black eye. [e]1f61e[/e]

    I do have screen protection insurance on it. However, I paid only $425 for the phone and they want $200 to replace it. I'm not gonna pay half just to get a refurbished one.

    I put it in this forum in the hopes that OnePlus would realize the importance of having screen protectors that work with Fingerprint ID.

    Perhaps you haven't searched well enough, or maybe they're not available in your locale, I don't know, but I saw quite a few options when looking for screen protectors, and the one I chose to buy works well in both ways, protecting the screen, and using fingerprint ID. I've dropped my phone quite a number of times, even a few times in just the same way you described, but I can rest easy coz the screen protector has taken all the hits, and even though it's a little cracked up now, it successfully protected the phone display completely. And I have 2 extra whenever I should choose to redo it. I got the set of 3 for just RMB145 (about USD$20-21). Point is, there are some good ones out there, just gotta find them.

    On the other hand, this is my first phone with the curved screen experience, and I don't think I'll ever get another curved screen device… the costs outweigh the benefits for me haha… *random guy in the back shouts out* "what benefits??" I don't know, guy in the back… I don't really know…

    There is no OnePlus here, this is only a community forum by the OnePlus users

    I too found a few that said the fingerprint scanner works when in use and it didn't. Thank you for the write-up.

    This forum is created by OnePlus so I'm sure their customer relations reads these.

    Why aren't you able to find a screen protector? They are all over the place. The one I'm using now is an IQ Shield I got from Amazon. IT comes 2 in a box. I got it. Installed it. But had a tiny bubble so I removed it and installed #2. Works perfectly with my Rhino Crashguard case. They also sent me two more for free since the first install got mucked up. So, in back, I have a D-brand Skin. IN front I have the IQ Shield. And for a frame, I have the Crashguard. Total protection.

    The IQ shield is somewhat soft, which I like. it's not glass. But the finger print works great. My only concern is, if you take a sharp object to it (key, knife, rock), it'll gouge the layer. Otherwise, I'd give this product a thumbs up

    It's not that I cannot find a screen protector. it's that there isn't a screen protector that works properly with the OnePlus Fingerprint ID feature on my OnePlus7 Pro.

    So what am I NOT getting here? I just stated above that I got the IQ Shield and it works flawlessly. That means finger print ID feature. I have zero problems. It has logged in every time. My only issue, is it's somewhat soft. Last week, I scratched the front. It seems to have healed itself. The scratches are gone now. Is it 100% crystal clear like invisible glass clear? No. But it'll work to protect the screen.

    FYI..this is my 2nd set. My first one was curved glass. It had a thin rubber ring around the whole protector. I managed to install my Crashguard over it. But it was a finger print magnet. Then a week later, it peeled off. So I removed it.

    That one worked with the fingerprint ID as well.

    I've had great success with this Poetic 360 full body case with a built in plastic screen protector on my OnePlus 7 Pro. Touch response on the built-in screen protector is very good. Even the edge touches no problem. Fingerprint reader also works great through the built-in screen protector. Good TPU case protection around the phone. I had once dropped my phone from waist height on the ground and no scratches, cracks or broken screen.after a year now both the phone and case still look mint condition; brand new.
