    Not hating, but I see that kind of comment all the time. Thing is, the screen is an insurance policy against anomalies. I have never broken mine, but I work in an office environment, so my risks are less. But, I have got several little scratches on my 920. Wish I'd got a suitable cover for that.

    i just purchased this for my lumia 950xl .

    looking at it, it is thinner and has one edge of the glass cut off.

    i hope that this will hopefully lessen the effect of the edge not sticking . (3 edges instead of 4 edges . heheh)

    Good luck, I suspect that the top left may cause you tears. Let us know.

    I think there is no need to protect the screen. pasting something on it is ugly. smartphone screens seldom damaged in normal use.

    As I have said before, I've read several post on here folks commenting on screen scratches purely from accidently popping there 950 into the same pocket as there car keys, easy mistake to make, enough reason for me I think

    I have this one (which is no longer available): Robot Check

    It has been replaced by this one: Robot Check

    I love mine and it went on without a hitch. No lifting in any of the corners.

    I have the incipio tempered glass protector. It was perfect for a month and a bit. Bottom right corner is now lifting. Tried to lift it to clean it, but no luck

    CONCLUSION : Don't waste time with tempered glass it will lift in corner.

    Don't waste time with Skinomi Gel protectors either if you intend to use a case of any kind, it will push up the edges of the skin.

    Just buy good old standard screen protectors, the type you can get 3 for 2 and they work great, yes you will probably muck up one of of three putting them on and after six weeks or so you may need to replace it, but for 3 for 2 and they look great when on, why bother wasting higher costs on the so called better products that are in effect no good on this model.

    Let my waste of money to get to this point save you some :D

    Cheers

    I did try also several products, Stillgut and CROCFOL. Stillgut doesn't glue on the Corners, CROCFOL is no glass, it's plastic and all over it plastic you see your own finger prints, there is no surface finish to keep the finger prints away - but CROCFOL does glue and somehow that plastic can break to, but it is rather something simliar to fiberglass.
    But I found Protomax Schutzglas at Amazon Germany it does the Job as it is supposed to do it

    I did, on the Nillkin too, definite thumbs-up at this stage.

    After fighting the "dreaded edge peel-up" across several protectors (Mr Shield, the ArkTek, which was close, only one corner section after a week), I'm having excellent success with the Nillkin H+ Pro too.
    I really like the glass protectors, over anything else; I thought the Lexerd ones were good until I had a glass protector on my M8, that pretty much ruined me for those.
    The other bonus is that my screen is staying almost smudge-free, something the other two did a so/so and terrible job at respectively. It's pretty wild, almost like it won't let the oils adhere, or anything else for that matter, I tried intentionally smudging it, with close to zero results (okay, so there was a faint outline, but compared to the others...).
    Anyway, I'm sold, but I've only had it for about 1.5 days, I guess time will tell, but in terms of peeling none of the others "sat down" completely, from the start even (after the first few seconds anyway), they all started peeling to some degree immediately, and just progressed. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one, and consider the "smudge thing" a nice bonus...
    The one thing that this one, and the Arktek have in common, is that they're quite a bit thinner than almost all the others I've seen, like the Mr Shield I tried first (this one worked great on my M8), the edges of the XL clearly have a bit of curvature.
    The downside is that they all seem to come from China or HK, but mine arrived surprisingly fast, maybe 5-6 days, unexpected.

    Thanks, Georg. Would yo mind posting a picture or describing the way the glass looks on the top? Is it like on the product page on amazon or are there additional cutouts (hopefully not ;) )?

    Thank you!

    hi, is the glass firm covering to the side of the screen? your pix seems like there is at least a 1-2mm gap at the four sides.

    I have had the Mr Shield tempered glass for 950xl for 2 weeks. So far so good overall. The corners show slight bubbling, but not actually coming up...will see how does in long term

    Thanks a lot, Georg, for the pictures! I had the Nillkin and the Protomax bith in front of me and decided to use the Nillkin, It is thinner and already is borderline sticking. It sticks, but I am not sure if it wll permanently. I also noticed that the Protomax is very nice, has a great touch. But I can not see, that it will stick on mine, as it is one of the thick (0.33mm) ones.

    Did you have problems with other glass protectors, regarding not sticking on the edges? Maybe I am having a really bad one.

    Thanks again and best regards,
    Corwin

    Yeah there is 1 mil gap, but you will also find out that other products do have also a gap of the size. I did test also Stillgut glas which did stayed on the corners and it had the same gap.

    In my case I say addtional 0.2 or 0.33 mm doesn't change the world and in both cases the additional protection is visible and a extra thickness of 0.1 is very hard to see and to be annoyed by it. The Crocfol which I used did wan'ted to sell that it is glas, but it wasn't and for this reason every fat of fingerprints was visible and this was annoying. With Protomax the fingerprint situation is as it is on the normal gorilla glas, which I consider for me as ok.

    In summary for the ATT 950 XL, the Mr. Shield has been the best option for me. It has the least bubbling in the corners, and none of the shield has "lifted up". I got it from Amazon for $8

    I think you should try the Nillkin Amazing H+ Pro Ultra-thin tempered glass, almost an edge to edge sticking, you can't really find any obvious gap at the four sides. High transparency and very good anti-fingerprint capabilities. Most importantly, perfect sticking, no lifting corners. I have it on my two 950 XL (one single SIM, one dual SIM), both stick perfectly.
