    Howdy,

    First off I love my 950xl even if I have yet to get my mozo cover or free dock.

    I purchased two different brands of 9h glass screen protectors off of amazon. One iVoler and the other a supershieldz ballistics.

    The supersheildz was installed first and applied just ever so slightly crooked. Some air pockets had to be smoothed out but areas around the edges just wouldn't hold tight. After a few days I ended up pulling it off because it kept unsealing from the edges.

    The iVoler applied better and once the air was pushed out seemed to seal perfectly for two days. On the third day I noticed the little nub beside the hello ir light was coming unsealed. By the fourth day the air pocked spread from the little bit at the top to running down a third of the left side and a cm into the screen area.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for one that seals perfectly? I've had these on my M8 for a year and shattered two of them ... no damage to the m8! The m8 ones are all supersheildz.

    I also got the iVoler, but I didn't like the fact that top part of the screen is not covered at all.

    I don't like that ether but most of the others I've seen don't have the cutouts for the hello camera and light.

    But are the cutouts really necessary for Hello camera? I have a glass cover on Surface Book and it fully covers the Hello camera, yet there is no problem with it at all.

    I bought one from Amazon but I have bubbles on the corners. I've never put one of these on my phone before so I'm not sure how they're supposed to work. I cleaned the glass really well before I mounted it.

    Hi Babs,

    you are not alone. The problem is, that many or all of the 950XL seem to have corners with a slight bend / hollow. That is, why you are having the air pockets, because the glass is too stiff to stay sucked on. This is a real bummer.
    I am trying high quality plastic films as a next option and will then use it without it ;)

    Best regards,
    Corwin

    I purchased the icarez from amazon, similar issues, no air bubbles but some edge opening pockets, and the right up corner is not fully covered.
    As I did not place the order in advance, my 950xl was bare for couple days, and I scratched the screen! I assume it's done by my 920......I should not leave 920 over 950xl's screen.....

    It seems like all glass protectors for 950Xl are made by the same company, because all of them have the same problem of exposed top right part of phone.

    Got IQ Shield ballistic glass and also same exposed top right and top corners not sticking all the way.

    Any one try the one MS had in their bundle? Forgot which one it was

    The MS one is the Incipio Plex. It comes with an alignment template that could work as a bumper case after installing the glass. The glass protector itself doesnt sit completely flush on the screen, the top left edges around the Hello light and bottom left corner doesn't seal completely, though I might be at fault for the bottom left corner having trapped a piece of dust in there. It is very minor and not noticeable with daily use.
    jlangner and Shamil Ben like this.

    The incipio did the same thing for me, the corners near the top and left have a little edge that won't stay down, I also got the aomax one from amazon and it did the same for me. I was worried that there was an issue with my screen, but if more are having it, it could be just a design issue.img_20151212_171156.jpg

    I had exactly the same problem tried two different glass protectors from ebay , complained and got replacements .One was slightly better but had the same corner problems , I have given up for now and gone with the standard flexible film protector, which works fine ,not the same level of protection but better than nothing.

    I had installed a tempered glass cover, and it was not sticking on three corners. I got disgusted with it and took it off.

    And today I dropped my phone and the screen shattered. Doh! Now looking at options. We have AT&T insurance, so I can get it replaced for $200. Does Microsoft repair or replace screens, and if so, how much do they charge (no MS insurance). Probably will go that route in the future; AT&T insurance seems like a rip off.

    It is sad to see that the phone is the issue for many of us. I tried 3 different glass protectors just to make sure it was the phone that was the issue. I had problems with all 4 corners of my phone... I just gave up and we will see how the Gorilla glass really holds up!

    Check out this video of an Orzly tempered glass screen protector for the L950XL--he applies it during the video and the corners adhere as they should:

    I have the Incipio offering on my device and all four corners have bubbles. I may be returning this for the Orzly.

    Only thing about the Orzly is that it doesn't provide cutouts for the IR sensor or the FF camera. Probably not deal-breakers, but thought I should mention it.

    If you look closely enough, you can see top corners leaving marks, which means that the protector is not fully adhered. The problem is that if there is even a slightest lifted boarder, dust will eventually get in.

    Yeah, it's still way better adherence than my Incipio, though. I'm willing to give it a couple more days before I attempt to return it.

    Check this one out from Tudia http://www.amazon.com/TUDIA-Premium-...pUvbUpU3344922. Installs perfectly and no lifting of the edges. Best part is they didn't just cut off the top right part of the protector. Just put cutouts around most of the sensors, so it still looks pretty good.

    hi there,
    I use Incipio on my Lumia 950 XL. What you can do is you just press hard on those bubble and spread it out, it will go away. I have those bubbles at first, but after i press and push hard on those bubble to spread it out...Those gone.

    The StilGut came today and so far has the best fit of any glass protectors I've tried. The corners have all stayed down.

    Let me know how the stilgut works out after a week. I put on a easypro+ on the 16th and the corners were not sticking right away and now after three days have spread into the screen area.

    I would be interested in the longer term expierence with the Stilgut protector as well. Please do kindly update the thread :) Thank you. I have now tried severyl protectors, but the display on mine *is* bent on the edges, like so many others. What an oversight... Now I settled with an AtFolix clear film which is quite good.

    Also interested to hear about how the StilGit protector holds up over a few days at least. Quite expensive but as you get 2 in a pack it means I can put one on my wife's 950xl I've got her for Christmas.
