Fret not, however, as barely has the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge order mania begun, and there are already a few reputable accessory makers that offer screen protectors for your precious, unlike last year when the S6 edge took everybody by surprise, and it took a while to get a decent film protector for the device, let alone a tempered glass one. Well, the situation with glass protectors is no different for the S7 edge right now, as it is pretty hard to nail the curve, glue it right, and still have no touch sensitivity issues from the sides, so there are only a few glass ones on the market at the moment, which are yet to prove themselves fully.
Best Galaxy S7 edge screen protectors
"The Supershieldz screen protector for the S7 Edge are much thinner than others and take time and patience to install. But once installed they work well. To get the best alignment I had to use the included dust stickies to lift and align both sides (top and bottom). I have not had them curl on the edges as it happened to me with the Samsung S6 screen protectors. At first the screen protector feels rubbery but after a few hours of use, it feels very smooth. I did notice that they mark easily. So if you have long fingernails you will see light dents in the film. The film does a nice job of keeping the outstanding colors and clarity of the S7 edge and it's hard to tell you have a protector on. My other problem was removing the top pink film. It's too hard to peel off. The last item to watch is when you put a case on. It can cause the film to lift.
- Doesn't Curl
- Clear Screen
- Feels good to the touch
- Not as forgiving to install like tempered glass
- Watch your case it can cause the film to lift"
"...after years of soul searching for the perfect protector, when I received my S7 Edge, I gladly went back to using IQ Shield protectors. This is by far the most durable protector, from my experience. I’ve tried other wet-install protectors including Zagg, Armorsuit and Skinomi but I hated the rubber feeling those protectors left. The IQ protector has a smooth glass-like finish that doesn’t feel like cheap rubber.
The worst part of the shield is the installation so I hope these tips help:
-Apply enough solution on the back of the protector, if the protector doesn’t slide around when you apply it to the device, you don’t have enough. (this was my first mistake)
-As the solution dries, it will start to stick to the device. Use the palm of your hand to hold down stubborn areas as the solution evaporates.
-Be patient, at first you’ll see some bubbles, but as the liquid dries the protector will start to clear. Within a few days you won’t even notice it."
"As described this is a matte finishing type of screen protector so the usual glare and fingerprints will not be a factor. It only comes with one screen protector and none for the back of your phone. The overall appearance of the film is clear, thin and light weight. Be sure not to attempt peeling off the screen protector before deciding to apply it to your phone, as lifting will cause air bubbles. I would recommend a spray and set type screen protector which in my opinion last longer, is more durable and the micro- air bubble/ streaks or any imperfections usually disappears within 2-3 days/ over time. What i love the most about this screen protector is the fact that it has an elastic polymerization technology that actually allow fine scratches, scuffs and marks to disappear over time."
We are most interested in the Glass Contour option, however, which protects the screen of the device with tempered reinforced glass layer, and if previous experiences with Zagg are any indication, would fit like a glove. Zagg is pricing it at a preliminary $40 tag, though, and it will be available at a later date that hasn't been announced just yet, though it might be worth the wait.
