    So, it seems like Ultimate Shield has changed their cutout for the speaker. I've seen in earlier pictures that the cutout has only been around the speaker, which I would have prefered. But now when I have recieved mine that's obviously not the case anymore. Now it stretches all the way over the camera and sensors.

    I guess I'll just use mine anyways, as I can't be bothered sending it back abroad. But if you're very picky about the look this might change your mind about it.

    I have a different brand and the cutout is only around the speaker. Like you, I prefer it that way as well. I wonder if there were complaints with regard to the protector being over the sensor/camera that made them change this design?

    I guess there might have been. Can't really see how a thin layer of glass would affect either the sensors or camera too much though :confused:

    Oh no! Crap I just bought it. I thought it covered the entire glass panel except the earpiece.

    I think the orzly one is the only one I've seen that is only cut out for the speaker. Waiting on a US shipper before ordering. Sorry if I butchered the brand name don't have time to look it up.

    i have nillkin for a while now but i just ordered an ozrly protector because with the nillkin ( and the one OP has) the front facing camera acts like a dust attractor :p

    I ordered mine on august 1st and today i am back from holiday and recived ultimate shield, i was surprised about changes and wanted to create new thread about bigger earpiece but before that i searched forum and found this thread. Before there was many complains about sensors beeing under the glass and because of that they writed posts like not buying it and taking rhino instead, you can track those post, they were posted 2 weeks ago. From my point of view the bigger hole is fine as long as because of it it wount start to peal it self from sand and moisture that get in to that piece.
