    I am looking for a good screenguard for my Lumia 920 that should protect the whole screen. But due to curved edges all the screenguards don't cover the whole screen only the display portions. Rest of the portion including the capacitive buttons remained UNPROTECTED which are more prone to danger.

    Can someone suggest me a solution to this? How did previous owners of Lumia 800 managed? It also has curve screen?

    Because of this limitation of screen guard, I don't keep my lumia 920 in my coin pocket because I fear that rough edges of Denim might hurt it. Because I remember my previous Lumia 900 screen had microscratches becasue I kept it in the coin pocket. I have to keep my lumia 920 in my shirt pocket thus risking the heart

    I've had a couple of different brands of screen protectors so far. They all cover the screen and cap buttons. And actually they have both been about 1/8" to big. The curved glass is really a pain. I get a border around screen Prot where it won't follow curve and adhere to screen. I remember reading somewhere, it may have been wpcentral, about a "wet applied" setup was possibly coming that would allow protector to follow curve. I haven't found it but I haven't been looking either. Any sp made for the 920 should cover the cap buttons as well. Of they don't, they aren't 920 specific.

    After having seen a video of the 920's screen getting slashed by a knife and still being perfectly fine I don't see the need in a screen protector? Am I missing something?

    Have had my Zagg for a few weeks now... covers the entire screen and I have a lifetime guarantee on it... only thing is it leaves this weird looking texture when the screen is dark but it's not noticeable when the screen is on. Now I just need to wait for the Nokia soft cover to be available.

    Yeah, grab a knife and scratch the **** out of it and that's not a problem... leave it in you pocket/purse and after a few days, so how many micro scratches the screen gets...

    Yeah.... A scratch on your screen.
    I put my phone in the wrong pocket last week and immediately felt my keys against my leg. I took it out to switch pockets and viola, a 2" long ziggzagg scratch.

    I ordered a fully body protective skin from Skinomi on Amazon. It was very easy to install if you follow the directions and has been great so far. It's a bit tricky trying to get the back cover on due to the curve, but with just apply with patience.

    Phone is scratch resistant not scratch proof.
    In videos even though it shows that phones are man handled and works fine, I still wont bet on it, based on my past experiences with gorilla glass.

    Anyways glad to see this topic, please let me know how is gadgetshieldz I am getting it almost half price than zagg.
    If anyone has tried it please suggest, weather to go for it or not due to curve screen.
    I have tried 3 screenguards from ebay and none fits well so dont even think of ebay.
