    Seems like some countries are coming with the screen protector already applied and others aren't.

    What's the reasoning behind this? Just ruined mine trying to apply it.

    Same in the US. Some people are receiving no screen protector installed or included. Some people are receiving them pre-applied, and most are receiving them loose with no installation instructions or tools.

    I received nothing, and am now stuck with a super-valuable phone unprotected. No retailers/ online stores are selling the protectors in the US as of now. This is really upsetting.

    This makes no sense.

    There was two screen protectors in the box for mine.

    Simple question really - feel free to comment with your country and where you bought etc.

    OnePlus 8 , came with one installed. Ordered of OnePlus. From Ireland but fairly sure UK/Ireland stock is the same.

    In the US - my OP 8 Pro came with 2 screen protectors and no instructions on how to install it. I tried to install one and had to peel it off as I could not get rid of the bubbles. This is my 1st OP phone and the Wireless Bullets Z is OK, the case is flimsy, and the screen protectors look cheaply made.

    Romania. I got two screen protectors well hidden in the box, no instructions on how to install them. Should do for now, but expected to be applied from factory

    I received 2 with no instructions. Messed up the first application. the second one had a perfect application and is already starting to peel on one side of the screen. Ordered 3rd party protectors on Amazon that won't arrive for another 1-2 weeks. Kind of frustrating.

    UK - ordered from Amazon. Screen protector was NOT pre-applied, 2 protectors were in the box. But those screen protectors have no give at all and the advesive is like epoxy. If anyone can get a decent install without airbubbles I'd be genuinely impressed.

    I contacted OnePlus live chat today and asked them why and they said they don't understand why some units do not have the screen protector pre-applied.
