Nexus 6 screen protectors

Hello sders, just wondering what tempered glass you guys and gals are using on your Nexus 6. I'm using extreme guard spartian glass. While they offer a decent product, I have proximity sensor issues with my protector. I emailed them to let them know and they sent me an additional 3 that all have the same problem. it looks like the screen protector is provisioned on the wrong side of the speaker for the proximity sensor. I'm guessing this is why I'm having issues. Phone works fine without . So what tempered glass protector are you using?

Nexus 6 has had screen protector issues since day 1. The screen protector thread on XDA forums has over 300 pages and extremely mixed results.

The 2 that seem to have the best, most consistent results are the Intelli Armor one and the Verizon branded one. The Verizon one is a little smaller and has almost no bubbles. The Intelli Armor one covers edge to edge, but does have some bubbles (AKA "halo" effect) near the edges of the screen. I recommend those 2. I have had both of them. Am currently using the Intelli Armor one.

Ok, thanks. I was unaware of any known issues. Doesn't look like these are less then $5 like the extreme guard lol. guess I'll have to bite the bullet

Now that I know you are a Nexus 6 owner I was hoping to get some thoughts out of you. Is the 6p a large enough improvement to make it worthwhile?

Was looking at the 6p or the 5x for my next phone, but can't decide if they would do better for me than an LG G4.

No they're not, but they're only like $15 max. Well worth it. Again, the only 2 reliable ones out there. I spent 2 months and several screen protectors (with money back) trying to get a good one.

No, not if you already have a Nexus 6. I personally started going Nexus phones because I love the pure vanilla feel. Was tired of all the samsung and other manufacturers' bloat. I have installed custom ROM and tweaks and hacks since day 1. If you want to do lots of hacking I say get the Nexus. But give it about 4-6 months the price will drop. It doesn't hold it's price value as good as the bigger names do like Samsung or LG

I don't have the Nexus 6, but from what I've read the camera on the 6p is a big improvement. The 6p also has a slightly smaller screen and a fingerprint scanner. It's a matter of how important certain features are to you.

I'd have a hard time going back to a phone that isn't a nexus model.

Camera quality is defined by more than just megapixels, sensor/pixel size, sensor quality, and aperture all make a big difference. I probably wouldn't upgrade from the Nexus 6 either, but the Nexus 6p's camera focuses faster / more reliably and does a better job with burst shots. A fingerprint scanner can be nice to expedite unlocking, but again it wouldn't be enough for me to upgrade. If I had some little kids running around, the 6p upgrade would probably be worth it.
