    I just bought the UltraTough Clear ScreenGuardz: Nokia Lumia 1520 Screen Protectors by BodyGuardz

    Along with their Amor body protector. Is that a good screen protector?


    I would have MUCH preferred their HD Impact screen protector but they aren't going to make it for the 1520 :(

    "Alex, Thank you for contacting us! Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any plans to make the HD Impact film for the Nokia 1520. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can assist you with.

    Thanks,
    Brittany

    Customer Care Team"

    I guess no one is making a real legit tempered glass screen protector for the 1520 that has the edges slightly curved to fit it correctly?

    I bought mine from China directly from a manufacturer back in January. I think I may have one of first to own one as they had to design and cut from new. It has been flawless and no bubbles and looks great. It was expensive as they have proper factories , airtight labs etc and was going to distribute but could not get price down enough. It cost me around 25 for 2 samples and dhl express delivery which took the bulk of the cost (protectors were around $6 each). Best purchase I made for phone. I guess I would stay away from ultra cheap ones

    Just installed a Fatax 9H Tempered Glass Screen Protector on my 1520 - Amazon.com: Fatax Nokia Lumia 1520 0.2mm 2.5D 9H Tempered Glass Screen Protector Ultra Clear HD Film with Anti-Bubble and Anti-Fingerprint - High Quality (Invisible) LCD Shield: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Very happy with it. Glass is super smooth (as it should be) and looks like the fingerprint reduction claim is true, at least so far. It's not quite touching the screen on the edges as others have similarly reported for other glass protectors due to the slightly curved 1520 screen, but that doesn't bother me since my case covers that and the cut-outs are great (some others are off a bit as I've found out). The packaging is also great.

    Went on very easily with zero bubbles. Hard to beat for $12.99 on Amazon.

    Not really too much to see...the Fatax tempered glass screen protector blends into the screen really nicely. Only spot you can even see it (unless you peel back the case) is the top of the phone where there's a cutout so here you go!

    I have a case but not a screen protector and today I dropped my 1520 and cracked the glass. The phone still works but a small crack goes straight across the screen.

    Don't mean to be picky but how much of the phone's screen is exposed outside of the glass? And does the glass have "lifts" around the edges as most tempered glass protectors for our phone are cut too big so the edges don't flush to the curved screen. I've gone thru a couple and really hate them but if this brand won't give those "lifts", I'd love to give it a try. Thanks mate

    You'll be disappointed then, unfortunately. The glass doesn't quite fully cover the screen - probably a 2mm gap on all sides. Not a big deal with a case as my picture shows.

    The bigger issue is that the edges of the Fatax tempered glass are definitely lifted above the screen too like all the others. Not a big deal for me since my case covers the gap but I know what you're talking about. If you're a perfectionist, it would drive you crazy for sure. I don't think any tempered glass adheres properly to the 1520's edges since they are curved slightly and the glass is not.

    I like this glass for the great price, the great scratch protection, the outstanding smoothness and the good (but not perfect) fit. It definitely has the same deficiency being lifted up on all the edges as the rest of them do, unfortunately.

    Does Fatax cover the whole screen?

    No, there's about a 2mm gap on all sides but with a case, it makes little difference. See my picture above...you really can't even tell. For me, it's doing just what I want which is to provide screen scratch protection with no loss of touch capabilities.

    Tempered glass screen protector is just more hard than others, which is useless, but more expensive. The normal screen protector is good enough.
    It's not useless. Tempered glass screen protectors saved my screen twice. If I didn't have them on I would have had to replace my screen. Slipped out of my hand on concrete fell flat on the glass. No cracked screen because of the tempered glass. So they do work.

    Interesting. How thick are these type of screen protectors? Does it feel like glass when you slide your finger over them?

    Yes it feels like glass because it is glass.

    I received my Inskin tempered glass the other day and here are some photos of how it looks.

    anthonyssurface-win_20141104_165600.jpganthonyssurface-win_20141104_165657.jpg

    PRO'S

    Transparency is great, I wondered if the thickness of the glass would distort or wash out the screen image however the screen looks more vibrant with the glass than the PET material.

    I *think*, and it could just be my optimism is playing with me here, but it seems the touch screen is more responsive with the glass on. Haven't had issues with phantom taps or with swiping other than with the increased sensitivity of the screen. I have to be a little more attentive as it seems to be more sensitive to initial contact. Example I'm used to my old screen protector on it so when I swipe sometimes I end up loading a tile my finger initially touches.

    The glass feels terrific, so much smoother than the PET material of my old protector.

    I've only ever installed 2 other screen protectors and I'm pretty clumsy at it, this went on smoothly and without bubbles. Package came with alcohol swab, microfiber cloth, a card to push any bubbles out and sticky film to remover what leftover dust particles were on the screen.

    Cons:

    As you can probably tell from the photos the glass is a little skewed to the right side of the phone. To fit the cut out notch at the top of the glass around the area around the front cam and light sensor it leaves the left side uncovered by about 1.5 mm as compared to the right which is exposed by about .5mm. It is a noticeable skew.

    I'd prefer a hole punched out for the front facing cam and smaller notch around the ear piece and light sensor instead of the long notch the length of half the width of the screen.

    *Really nitpicking now* would like to see future versions formed to accommodate the curvature of the screen. The over hang around the screen looks to be about 1mm on the left side and almost 2mm on the right and more noticeable at the corners. (Again, the glass is a little skewed to one side)

    Overall I'm pretty happy with the product. This is my second screen protector for the 1520 and hopefully my last. Only thing left to do is see how this glass stands the test of time.

    I put a tempered glass protector on mine, but unfortunately AFTER I cracked the screen. It's really there to hold things together. Nice fit though, and the edges aren't bothersome. It was $6 on ebay. I was going to slap a plastic one on there, but a repair guy recommended I use a glass one. For me, repair cost was too high for a phone that I honestly feel is too fragile to survive. First phone I ever broke, but it took one day. The touch screen is erratic now, and I don't think I can tolerate using it, so it'll be retired. Maybe put it on ebay, maybe just use it around the house as an extra tablet on wifi.

    No. It will not match the curve of the 1520 screen. There will be a visible ring around the edge. I've not had any problems with it lifting of conflicting with my case - although some do report problems with a case interfering. See this excellent pic from MadamImAdam reprinted from earlier in this thread...
    81453d1411077383t-004.jpg

    ...with the screen lit you won't notice it unless you purposely look for it.

    and how does it feel like it is not on ?

    It is GLASS and so is your screen. To your finger it WILL feel just like your screen. Not at all like a plastic sheet. "Smooth as glass." You'll love it.


    also how can I get one ? how long it will take to arrive ?
    I'm not sure where you are... Check your local eBay or Amazon. Delivery times should be in the order info.

    I contacted inskin they said it will take 1-3 weeks but I found in some reviews that it does not fit to the edges ??
    Inskin has a good reputation so far as I know. The one I got was This One and I like that one very much. It's holding up great.

    The one's that are trimmed to stop where the curve of your screen starts look like this pic from myoujin earlier in the thread...
    70106d1403624695t-2014-06-24-094.jpg

    ...sorry, but I find that very unattractive. I'd rather have that faint ring around the screen.

    Hello all!!,
    So I really want to get a tempered glass protector for my 1520 but I'm not sure on a scale of 1-10 how much the lifted edges would bother me. I really just want one so I don't have to use my portfolio case 100% of the time but feel like if a drop were to happen i wouldn't be stuck paying 150 for insurance to replace it.

    So question #1: has anyone bought/used/ tried the Nacodex 9h one on Amazon? I'd post link but because I'm new it won't let me haha. There's currently no Amazon reviews for it and it seems nice so just though ID ask.

    #2: which one would you say lifts off the sides the "least" if any. And I don't want that goofy looking one with the cut in corners at the bottom. But also want maximum protection.

    Let me know! All helpful feedback is appreciated!!

    I just got a generic one off eBay, and it has the lifted edges. It seems to me the real sticking point with this phone is that the screen starts to curve before the actual display edge... in other words, there are a couple millimeters on the left and right where the lift starts. So normally they might be able to cut a protector that would be small enough to only sit on the truly flat area... but with this phone that won't work.

    I used to be a fan of curved glass displays, but I like these protectors so much I really wish MS would switch to flat displays for their high end phones. The curved glass doesn't add much value, and it means that these protectors just don't fit well.

    I'm leaving mine on, and will just see how it goes. My hope is that it doesn't start accumulating dirt under the lift, or peel up due to being stuck in my pocket. We'll see I guess.

    ​I would say for the $7 or whatever that a generic one will cost you it's worth trying it and seeing what you think. Mine looks better than the pictures, but it's clearly visible.

    I think that curve is engineered to add rigidity to the edges of the panel.

    So, I just bought this one off of ebay Clear 2 5D Tempered Glass LCD Screen Protector Film Fit Nokia Lumia 1520 RM 940 | eBay and it claims to have the 2.5d rounded edge which should make it fit flush on the phone. I'll let you all know how it goes when I receive it. I too had the tempered glass protector on my phone, but the slightly raised look around the edges annoyed me and I eventually took it off.
