Poll results: Are you putting a screen protector on your Galaxy Note 7?
Galaxy Note 7 drop tests have been popping up like on a whack-a-mole arcade ever since the first batches starting getting into the hands of their rightful owners last Friday, and they all indicate one thing - the glass rear might crack as easily as on the Galaxy S7 or the Note 5, but the front can remain intact from drops as high as a selfie setup.

That is why we asked you last week if you are planning to put a screen protector on the Quad HD Super AMOLED Dual edge display of the Galaxy Note 7. After all, the $270 panel already proved able to withstand shoulder-height drops, and decent curved screen protectors, especially glass ones, are few and far between.

Well, most of our respondents would still be shopping around for a screen protector, regardless of the durability of the new Gorilla Glass 5, which Corning pegs as able to survive five feet drops in up to 80% of the cases. Some of those film and glass layers for the Note 7 you can preview in the slideshow below. 

Are you placing a screen protector on your Galaxy Note 7?

Yeah, man, that stuff costs $270 to replace!

Question is where to find a good tempered glass protector which fits properly and doesn't get affected by any case?

Good point. Every tempered glass protector on Amazon has an abysmal rating. The protector with my Zizo bolt cover wouldn't stay on. It's very frustrating how all these tempered glasses are being sold but none actually stay one

I like glass screen protectors but they do have their problems. I bought one made by JetTech for my Note 5. It's clear and fits good. The Note took a fall off of my bed and hit the corner of something. The screen protector shattered but the phone was fine. Of course I would have no idea if the Note 7 version is good but they do seem to stand behind their products. If you're happy, write a review. I did, and they sent me a very good lightning cable to review and only charged me a couple of bucks for it.

U have these options: 1.wallet type protection that will protect 360degrees. 2. Wallet type case with plastic inside + tempered glass (silicone will push the glass) 3. Any protection but no t.g. 4. No protection just T.G. 5. Another phone

The worry is not only about cracked screens, but also scratched ones. Once I travertine my note 7 this Friday I will go with the Samsung original film protector because I assume it should be the safest in terms of fit and spirituality for a back cover.
