    The tempered glass one does it have curves? I hate the glass one as I feel the take away some of the touch sensetivnes.

    That is why I may take a pass or possibly buy a different brand with one pre-installed. Really do not want to but this is a key feature. You may have 120hz screen, but who cares if screen is scratched or have to spend hours every few months replacing it (and paying for a replacement).

    To all those who installed the screenprotector but got air bubbles, don't panic.
    Those air bubbles will go away after 24 to 48 hours.
    Those soft screen protectors which are used for curved screens have some ability to ''breathe''.

    So if there is no dirt or dust and just air bubbles. Leave it like that and 2 days later, you'll be happy.

    Same for my 7pro...
    Screwed up 3 protectors before i reached out for help.
    They told me leave it like that (bubbles).
    They will dissapear ... And they where right.

    Just wanted to share.

    Wow, hoping my 2nd one is better then! Doubtful as it's a pop-up box so was probably one of the first few off the line.. [e]1f602[/e] Will be happy to have a well fitted screen protector at least 🤞 Thanks for checking! [e]1f44d[/e]

    Has anyone complained to amazon about this? Because this is clearly bugging a lot of us?

    it is not Amazon only. i ordered mine from OP directly in Bulgaria and got it with no protector installed and 2 for me to deal with in the package.
    I installed one, made it with getting it wet, so I dont have any bubbles, but the included transperant protector is now pushing the edges so it is pealing off at the curves.
    Sucks big time to be honest.

    That's what am saying we should be complaining about this surely? Am getting in touch with amazon as there is no way I am keeping a near enough 1000 quid phone with no protection!

    Does anyone have any third party screen protector recommendations? I destroyed one of the protectors that came in the box and the second one is slowly peeling off... Any ideas?

    Mine didn't come with a screen protector, when I purchased my phone I ordered one also. My phone carrier is T-Mobile. I also got a phone case also.

    there's 2 in the box as you probably already figured out

    why are you even in this thread, let alone any forum/thread above 6T/7? 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I applied one of the screen protectors provided and nothing but bubbles, even when I
    used a credit card to squeeze them out. It was so bad the fingerprint sensor on the phone kept giving me errors. I had to take it off. Waiting for glass screen protector and liquid protector I ordered from Amazon.

    @ronnyhawks Do these work well with under screen fingerprint scanners? I'm scared that the fingerprint scanner will become less responsive.

    Not true, sorry pal, they do not dissapear! I took time to install both them. First had milliard bubbles and they to smooth it out but couldn't, so I left it alone. In a day or too the protector started peeping off and eventually I had to take it off as it was moving around like crazy. So.. I used the second one, same story maybe just thousand little bubbles. I tried to get the air out, couldn't so I left it alone and .... protector just peeled off. I am looking for a good after market screen protector and and all of them are not good. Either flimsy films like the one which OP supplied and I already wasted or the glass one which will not stay if you put a good case on it due to curved screen. Well I am getting quite annoyed, spending a grand on the phone and these guys couldn't put protector on? I have been a loyal customer for them from the day one(literally-invite# 25), but such sloppy launch is not cool!

    Go for the ringke or rosso screenprotector ;)
    those are really good and those make bubbles dissapear.
    I use those 2 for the last year and swap protectors every 2 months (lots of dirt with my job so scratches appear really fast).

    Never had problems with those, so take a shot at it.
