    Any one got hands on a good curved screen protector? I tried glass one but as 830's display curves at sides it doesn't fit perfectly.
    Looking for something that'll cover whole screen.
    Thanks

    I tried three screen protectors. Only one fit around the curves and it's the one from Skinomi. However, the search button stopped working with the screen protector on our phones. I punched a hole into the protector for the search button and it works again.

    the next best one for us was the Fosmon, which is dry apply. However, same issue with search button and it doesn't cover a substantial part of the screen.

    You may be lucky and a screen protector works on yours. You can try this with a plastic wrap film on the phone and see how your search button behaves. I think your best bet is a wet apply protector as these are flexible enough to conform to the L830's curvature and covers the entire screen.

    +1 for Skinomi. I used one before I took it completely off. Skinomi had a support rubbery texture, something I would not prefer. But it does fit the 830's screen the best.
