    I've bought about 3 now from different suppliers on eBay claiming to be 3D tempered glass for S7 Edge, and all have been the flimsy film-like protectors that are utterly hopeless, and not the hardened plastic-like protectors that I've had for all other phones I've bought them for.

    Are there any true tempered glass protectors available for the Edge, or is this just the way it is this model phone?

    If there are any available and recommended could someone post up links please, and could you also let me know if they fit snugly and cleanly around the edges without any pocketing

    Many thanks

    There are a few including a fairly expensive one from Zagg that fit reasonably well, however they had severe limitations beyond the fit.

    They are all glued only on the outer borders. As a result a level of protection on the main surface (lacking adhesive contact) is questionable.

    Practically all cases will cause these protectors to bulge and pop-up due to pressure on the edges. Very, very few cases with minimalistic protection and questionable looks are available that would work on these screen protectors.

    I have purchased a few of these "well fitting protectors" and have been disappointed for the aforementioned reasons. I also question their true level of protection. A decent case is far more important for phone protection and there are several non-glass screen protectors that do provide a reasonable level of scratch protection.

    Tempered glass protectors with proper adhesives worked great for earlier phones that had flat screens.

    I got the Alpha Glass from Otterbox, what a piece of garbage. The screen was totally useless with it on. You would have to press on the keyboard super hard and multiple times to get the phone to recognize your inputs. It lasted less than a day before I removed it.
