    Sorry I got a little lost.
    Does the tempered glass screen hang over the curve or does it apply only to the flat portion of the screen? I can't zoom in on your pic either. It looks like it hangs slightly over the curves but I can't really tell.

    If I read properly, the glass hangs over the curved part?

    Yes but it isn't noticable with the screen on. No one I know of is making one that will fit perfectly yet,so till they do this one works excellent.

    Hey Mac, I came across something in aliexpress for a song. Hopefully the wait isn't too long. Gonna give it a shot. Nice to see we're getting options now for our device

    I got mine today. Packaging was good, no scratches or anything. There was a protection film on one side of the glass. I thought this side has to be on the screen. Pulled it of and installed the glass on my screen. No dust or anything underneath.

    But it is too big, it hangs over the curves. This may affect the camera in the front. First I thought, I installed it the wrong way, because it looks like the round edges of the glass are facing my screen. But I'm not sure... what do you guys think?

    I see that's of a different brand as what Mac has. Probably different as well from what I ordered. Can't wait for the delivery of what I got

    As far as I can see for these pictures, the size seams to be right, but the installation is not perfect. You have left more space on the top and left side. But it's too late to move it now, you will probably get some dust and bobbles.

    After installing 3 cheap screen-protectors, my experience is that: It's not easy to align it perfectly, and get all bobbles out too, on such a HUGE screen. But moving it after first attempt will only add more problems.

    I Think the size is right, but the installation was not a perfect one.

    I personally think the size is wrong...
    It's too big, even if you move it left/right/up/down. It's the fact that we have what Nokia calls "2.5d glass". The slight curvature will always create a minor issue with screen protectors.

    If this was exactly the size of the flat-glass and doesn't overhang I think it would be perfect.. but that's just me.

    Wow, the seller got back within a few minutes of getting my email about the protector being cracked. He offered either a new one resent with better packaging or a refund. I'm disappointed with the cracked one but satisfied with the quickly reply.

    The fact it says it's recommended "tobeused" [no spacing] with an "iphone samsung case" [no capitalization anywhere, what is an iphone samsung case?] bothers me. But I'm sure it's still a good product, just lost in translation. Good on the seller with the reply though

    I purchased on amazon from the link mentioned earlier in this thread. Note, it actually fits well. The pictures shown are exactly how it fits my 1520 as well. It doesn't quite go to the edge (and I do have it centered perfectly) but it's relatively close. For me, I don't really see that edge getting scratched. You'd have to pull off a magic act (though I'm sure some on here are quite capable).

    That said, if you haven't ever used a tempered glass protector, you're missing out. Seriously. They protect extremely well and give the feel of having nothing on the phone. I highly recommend them. My GF has one and it has protected her phone flawlessly. In the case of something happening, they can break but your phone won't be damaged on the screen. You'll need to get another one, so that's the only drawback. Having the same precision touch/smoothness is priceless.

    Mine came in today. I bought this one:

    Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector film for Nokia Lumia 1520

    Pros:
    +Feels just like the screen itself
    +Amazing sensitivity and clarity through such relatively "thick" (protective) glass
    +Easy installation
    +My seller shipped mine in only 5 days total when the estimated delivery time was 10-14 business days
    +Install kit has simple instructions and comes with everything you need
    +Size is perfect. No overhang or anything.

    Cons:
    -A tiny portion of the edges of the protector does not actually stick or adhere to the phone itself. I don't know if this is because the edges are rounded on the 1520 or because there is no adhesive material on the edges of it, but it is uniform around the whole protector where it is not stuck down like the rest of it. This could be by design or because of the 1520's screen shape. Either way, it is very minor, and has not caused any issues. I don't really expect it to, either. It's more of just a small visual thing like you have a white border around your protector but it's not a big deal at all for me. It looks just like the person who posted above in terms of not sticking down on the sides but I centered it perfectly and it's completely fine for me.

    Summary: Highly recommend it. Best screen protector I've ever used. Much higher quality than ZAGG Glass.

    Anyone try the Nilkin one off eBay? I think everyone should let us know which type they have. (ie the company) so we can discern which is the best quality cost wise.

    Oh didn't know nillkin made already one. Have tried that on a different phone and it's pretty good. Now I'm tempted to get it.

    I have ordered one but the seller from China says it can take up to 25 days to deliver it to Sweden. Hopes it goes quicker :-)

    Not tempered glass, but a privacy screen filter! a tad thick!
    Works like a charm, no sensitivity issues and you can see only if you are in front of the phone, if someone is sitting next to me they can't see anything! Only con I have found is that if you want to show photos to someone, unless you give them the phone it's impossible! But for sure it protects the screen like anything else!

    I even like the way it hides the nokia logo!

    I have one on mine now, but very disappointed in it. I mean it works great and all, but I think the 1520 has a beveled screen, because there is what looks like grey spot all the sreen like it isn't touching glass. My HTC One screen was beveled and the tempered glass I got for it was beveled. So it touched the screen 100%. I want one that is like that.

    Well, I guess the main thing I'm looking for, irregardless of cost, is a glass protector that is also beveled like the screen. Anyone got one as such?
