    It's been over a week with the tempered glass in place... Still very happy with it. Very resistant to fingerprints, easy clean up, not a scratch in sight.

    It just looks fantastic. The clarity of it is like a naked screen. The feel of it can't be described. Better than a naked screen, if you can believe that.

    If you are going to use it in bright sunlight for navigation and you can remember to do so; turn off automatic brightness and crank 'er up to 100%. That is the only caveat I have thus far.
    Or just turn on daylight readability.

    I really enjoy tempered glass, but one day i woke up and it has one scratch near the side. But i contacted to seller and he will send a new one. Using nacodex. Its very nice, but that crack really upset me. I will think that is bad item

    Ok I don't want to start new thread for this. I need screen protector for 925 that covers whole surface (rounded edges) and charging cover but not just piece of plastic but to cover whole body. Any suggestions?
    Thank you in advance

    What you want isn't possible, there are no rounded screen protectors.. I also enjoy my tempered glass screen protector very much though. I got it cheap from Ebay, the light sensor still works perfectly fine and the feeling and looks are great!

    Doesn't exist off the shelf...

    Get a larger than the screen sheet of universal screen protector and trim to your desired fit.

    IMHO, a dual density case is better protection than a hard shell. Do you want Qi charging inside? That is a bigger task.

    I didn't know these things existed until I read of them here. (Hooray for forums!) I bought one for my 925 and it's like the clouds open, the sunlight shines, and the angels sing, compared to the standard plastic films. Position it very carefully, one end or side touching the screen. Let go......it just falls into place, no bubbles, no problems. You can peel it off, gently; I did so to test on my 810. Just fine.

    With a clear, thin case I bought on....where else....eBay, my phone retains the look of being naked but has protection everywhere except for that slight gap between the protector and case.

    I understand many of you are having issues with the "curved" screen on the 925 not allowing the tempered glass protectors to go all the way to the edge over the curve. Understandable.

    I've just purchased the Nacodex Tempered Glass Screen Protector for the Lumia 520 from Amazon, and will take 17 to 28 days to ship. Since there is no curvature to the 520 screen, I will be hoping that this particular one will fit to the edges, or at least very close to the edges. I'll let you know once I have it and get it in place.

    Currently, for protection until it arrives, I've got some old "over-sized film protectors" that came with cutting guides, and were meant to be compatible with all touch screen phones. Had some in a drawer from when I bought my pocket PC back in 2006. I had gotten a 10 pack for $1.50 or something way back then. They are actually better than most of what's on the market now, as there aren't any discolorations, no blur, and they installed with no bubbles, but they take scratches quite easily. I've had this one one for 3 weeks now, and it is getting scratched up enough that I am about to replace it already. Not to mention how bad it hold the grease. I have to clean it constantly. Quite easy to read, however, whatever the lighting. Just can't stand the scratches, and can't stand the stiff, friction feel to it.

    I can't wait until the new tempered glass one arrives. I know, what's the use in protecting a cheap L520? Well, I kept my Windows Mobile 5 phone for 8 years, and just now got the L520 to replace it. I plan on keeping the L520 for at least 4 years before upgrading it, possibly longer depending on how well it's doing at that time. Really loving WP8.1. This in conjunction with my armored case will help protect my precious Cortana. :)

    Some time ago I ordered one of those Spartan tempered glasses, but when I installed it, none of the edges were sticking to the phone. Figured maybe I was doing something wrong (lifted it a few times to align it properly), so I ordered an other one, now a cheaper one from china. I aligned it on the first try, no dust, no smudges, but the result was the same.

    What did I do wrong? The size of the screen protector is the same as the ones posted before, so it shouldn't lift due to the curved edges.

    Since it's so uniform, it's either a defect of in the design. Obviously, it's just cosmetic, so it's a question of can you live with it?
