Bargain I thought.

Now all I need is a decent case / cover to protect from being dropped, which killed my pre-
bonomitch,

did you ever get a case? if so, which and why?


thx!

Just to add to this:

I bought a Zagg screen protector for my Pre 3. With a discount that was easy to find through google, and after shipping, it came out to a little over $14. I didn't have experience installing these things, but I got it on with no bubbles. I really like how it looks and feels, and would definitely recommend it. Even though it has been said that it would take a lot to scratch this glass, I feel better having it.

mmmm, I took a similar package of screen protectors from a german seller, some months ago, but I had big issues installing them ( wasted the first 3, kept getting bubbles and gave up ), plus they were not exactly as big as the screen... ( they were smaller than it, and the hole for the speaker was a bit bigger ) so alignment was an issue, too.

How are these screen protectors , as fit etc ? Is not having the hole for the proximity sensor causing any problem ?

@XPL... So how did the skinomi shield turned out??? I noticed on the pictures that it has some cutouts for the camera and light sensor... are they very noticeable once its applied or not much...

@Sylo... Does the zagg shield have also the same cutouts???

I don't think that neither the camera and the sensor would need the cutout... the protector is practically invisible to them...

I like better the look of my pre 3 as it is right now, one piece of glass with just one cutout for the speaker... and for my pre+ I had the skinomi shield and I liked it a lot... so I'm really considering it, but those cutouts are turning me to other options...

please let me know your thoughts... are the cuts visible at first glance or do they blend and you don't notice them??? and does the zagg shield have cutouts??? if so, also both???

Thanks...

I purchased the Skinomi Techskin, like I do with all my phones. The cutouts are extremely exact, so be careful when applying.

but once installed, is the cutout visible at first glance or you need to stare at them to notice it??? as you can see I'm picky with my gadgets and their appearance, hehe...

You can definitely see the cutouts.

The cut outs are good as some folks have had to trash their screen protector when it started messing with the proximity sensor.

the Pre.3 definately does.not have the gorilla glass screen. Used it for a week without screen protector and there are a lot of minute scratches. found out the hard way as the screen scratches easily and its too late. please get yourself a screen protector

However, not a single scratch on my veer after using it for a year mixing it with keys and etc.

Anyone else has similar experience? the pre 3 is currently retired until a screen protector is bought.

Gorilla glass is not scratch proof. I know many friends with devices that Corning lists on their site as having Gorilla Glass and they get scratched too.

depends..... It should not be so easily scratched. Pre 3 has the worst quality glass used compared to most phones
