    Okay, so I have screen protectors on back and front. They are full coverage and actually fit!!

    When I try to put on my rugged armor Spigen case, my screen protector starts to lift on the corners.

    Is there a case that is, slim, protective,not bulky/heavy,and won't lift my screen protector?

    Certain manufacturers make screen protectors that are specifically designed for cases. These protectors are offset from the edges of the screen by a small enough amount prevent the problem you are having. Since I am dumb enough, not to use screen protectors myself, I can't remember offhand, the names of these brands.

    I literally was waiting on screen protectors cause I kept reading how awful they have been to put on and it actually fit. Then I've read that you don't need one because the glass is pretty durable. After I went to the store to talk about some issues, the rep told me that some people have had their screens scratched .. that would drive me crazy if I knew there was a Crack or scratch. So now I'm stuck on a cases :[

    Is your phone and S7 or S7 edge?
    Check out Bodyguardz screen protectors. I believe, but I'm not sure, that they are slightly offset from the edges to prevent issues with cases. Also Spigen which makes cases has screen protectors compatible with their cases.

    I already have a screen protector from t-mobile which is for the S7. It fits perfect,it's full coverage and back is covered too. But now I'm wondering is there a case that won't "lip" over on the edges lol

    I'm not sure if I'm wording it right. The cusp is what is making the protector lift.

    I believe the lip is what helps the case clamp on/fit snugly on the phone. The problem is caused when that "lip" contacts the outer edge of the screen protector. Unfortunately, due to the curves built into both the S7 and S7 edge the adherence of the screen protector is weakest at these same edges. A perfectly fitted screen protector that covers the entire surface of the screen will always have these issues. I know for a fact that many of the companies that make the better screen protectors have built-in small gaps along the edges that prevent this interference between the case and the screen protector. Once the case is on this gap is not visible.

    I see what your saying. Well I guess I'm just going to have to deal with it lol. I dunno why I keep getting mix reviews on the screens natural sturdiness. Some say it's actually very strong while others get scratch marks.

    I just put the case back on and I'll deal with the lifting a little.
