Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute rubbishAfter a matter of days the glass cracked in the corner. Hasn't been dropped at all. It's inside the otterbox defender case. Seems to be a bad fit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dulls screen sensiitivityI have purchased other Otterbox products in the past and had great success with them. This one I find takes away almost all the touch sensitivity of the screen. This could be because of the curved sides. I will try this product for a while longer, and if it doesn't improve I will be looking for an alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Thick to WorkI purchased this Screen Protector because the case for my phone did not have one. It fit perfectly in conjunction with the case but when trying to use my phone I had to press incredibly hard to get the phone to operate. Typing was slow and the phone was not very responsive. Ultimately I had to remove the p screen protector so the phone would function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HorribleNo GOOD!! I bought the OutterBox case and Outterbox glass for my S8 phone 2 days ago...the Outterbox glass is horrible!!! The sensitivity is the worst ever! Its hard to text...hard to slide down your notifications! It makes a horrible sound when trying to use your phone! This is ridiculous! I had to take off the glass to properly use my phone! I need a refund! Its hard to enjoy your new device knowing it is not fully protected!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eh. Not sensitive to the touch.Purchased this online through Otterbox. Installed it on my phone with little difficulty. Was happy to see how well it fit with the defender series case. But I'm not happy with the touch sensitivity. I have to press really hard in order for the phone to recognize what I'm trying to do. Texting is really difficult. I'm sure this helps protect the phone but I want protection along with function and unfortunately this doesn't deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 3rd otter box on my 3rd phoneI work in a dusty environment and I've never had any issues since I started using Otterbox. Best cover I've found on galaxy 3, 6 and now S8. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not happy with Screen ProtectorI installed the screen protector on my Galaxy S8 as directed. After installation the touch screen became very hard to activate with my touch. I finally had to remove the touch screen just to get my phone to operate by touch as it should. I'm not sure of the problem, but it may be a small void between the phone screen and the protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit well with otterbox commuter caseI put the screen protector on my phone about a week ago. It was easy to put on. It does not work well with my otterbox case, even though the website says it does. I followed the directions for putting the case back on and it just doesn't fit well. I lose some sensitivity in the very top of my touch screen making it difficult to use apps or websites with anything in that part of the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not buyThe product needs some tweaking. I couldn't really move around my phone. It was very clear though. But if I can't touch the screen and move around my phone easily. It really defeats the purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed-had to returnOrder processing and delivery was excellent. However when I placed this product on my screen it completely diminshed the touch sensitivity of the top and edge swipe bars. I had reduced sensitivity on most other areas of my screen so editing a text required massive pressure on the screen and slowed down the experience of using the phone. I would not recommend this product but have had other positive experiences with otter box products and would not give up on them yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpha glassIt protects my phone just fine but I have to press down pretty hard on the screen for it to read my finger. Makes typing extremely slow. I took off all the "film" and cleaned it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renders phone unusableI recently purchased the alphaglass screen protector for my galaxy s8, and from past experience with Otterbox cases I expected great things. Unfortunately, once on the phone I was unable to use the screen without excessive force. The back arrow was unusable, as well as the edge function, even scrolling was severely hindered. The lack of functionality was only accentuated by the poor glue used, with the screen protector sliding around the screen only adding to its flaws. After this experience, I would not be inclined to purchase a screen protector from Otterbox again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too thickI had this on my phone for all of an hour and hated it. It's too thick. You have to press so hard for the phone to register your finger is on the screen. Makes texting impossible and doesn't let you scroll very well. I will put it on my phone maybe when I'm out and about all day in case it falls but for everyday use it is n it good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great when properly appliedOther reviews say this doesn't fit and causes the screen to lose touch sensitivity. I'm not exactly sure how I fixed it, but all I did was reapply it and pressed the protector onto the screen. Since then, I don't even notice It's there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not work as advertisedI bought one and applied it to my Samsung S8. Within two weeks is became lose and made typing anything on the screen impossible. I then purchased another one thinking that I had bad luck. That one was great for 3 weeks before it loosened up and made the touch screen unusable. Not a fan of the Alpha glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor alpha screen, but excellent defender casesI purchased 2 screen protectors on the launch day, as I purchased 2 defender cases In advanced. After 2 weeks, my screen protector did not adhere after 48 hours of setting. My wife was unable to use the her application prior to play in the screen. We have constantly pur based the defender for prior phones. We have found the alpha screen has fallen short. Mine came off after 2 weeks. We are still happy with the defender cases, but the alpha screen has fallen short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not reccommendedI bought this and i have had it for about a month. The first time i barely drop my phone it gets a crack in the alpha glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unhappy..,..Have used your products on my s5 and was very happy. Went to the s8 and very dissatisfied. I went to another maker of screen protectors and because of the s8 curves nothing seems to fit. I am tired of punching the screen or pulling down any notifications. I am hoping you will be able to make some changes in the future on your screen protectors to work with the curves on the s8. I will be the first to buy it if you do as I have always been happy with your cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor fit causes lack of tactile responseThe cover looks great but does NOT fit well. Because of the Samsung "edge" feature the cover has to be curved meaning that it does not flex sufficiently to offer enough sensitivity and/or contact with the actual screen.You install the cover and the only way to get it to work is if you push really hard. Otherwise it doesn't recognize your input/touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality as alwaysI've always have an otter box glass sheild on my phones. Can't go wrong with them but unfortunately with this one when you pair it with a cover, it does diminish the screen sensitivity. But I won't do one without the other so I am dealing with it. I have the symmetry cover and it does get better. Also I found for the top down menu, start from the middle of the screen instead of the very top and it works just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please Do Not BuyThe Alpha Glass Protector does not work well with the Otter Box Case that I purchased. They were actually recommended for purchase together and after using them both for 4 days the glass cracked. The glass does not have a snug fit once you attach the case. It causes s lift effect under the glass due to the squeezing of the case on the edges of the screen protector. Which also causes the reduced sensitivity that I heard everyone else complaining about. The Alpha Glass broke on my phone while in my sweater pocket with nothing else in it, on it or next to it. I didn't bump into anything or anyone and I'm still mystified as to how it broke. For the length of time I used it it's definitely not worth the money and I would like a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was very disappointed and removed itI had this screen protector on for a couple of days and hated it so I removed it. It made the screen unresponsive and near impossible to use my phone. I replaced it with a different brand glass screen protector, same as I had had previously, and it works perfectly. I was disappointed that Otterbox would only replace the product and I had to pay postage for the replacement, when I didn't want to pay another lot of postage to receive the same defective product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for nowI got this screen protector with the defender case, it works well but sometimes the side of the defender case at the edge of the screen binds up and gets underneath the screen protector. Witch causes the screen to loose sensitivity. Prompting me to hard press the screen to get any feedback. Causing one side of the screen to be useless. But if I take off the defrnder case and then put it back on it temporally fixes the problem. I feel like the adhesive of the screen protector will only last about a year if that. After that you would have to replace it with a new one. Besides that it is a very robust and integrated screen protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not happy with this productI bought this screen protector to avoid getting the glass scratched. I am very disappointed with the product as I cannot swipe accurately when writing text messages or emails. The glass is too thick I guess. I am going to look for a plastic protector instead. Will try to return the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works pretty wellI agree with other reviews that this does make the touch screen a little harder to use, especially the edges of the S8 but life happens (a lot in my case). I much prefer having to retouch a "button" or tap a little harder to the giant crack or scratches that would inevitably happen to the screen.I disagree that this doesn't work well with the other cases. I bought a Symmetry series case as well and had no problem getting them to work together. I guess putting the Alpha Glass on before the back case helped. Putting the glass on wasn't difficult just precise. Go slow and fallow the directions and you should be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpha GlassI paid a ton for alpha glass to hope it would be a better alternative to plastics and scratching. The glass broke while snapping otter box case together. I tried another for 1/2 the price and it broke on first day in rear pocket. I had a motorola droid maxx with otterbox case for 5 years never broke a screen. The s8 is never gonna be a highly reliable phone. Bad combination. Think otterbox is trying to protect a losing battle. :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracked the 1st dayI received this glass screen protector and my otter box commuter series for my S8 today. I put the screen protector on 1st and then when I was trying to put the case on, it cracked across the top and down the lower right side. I see where the defender series states It's "Designed for a perfect fit" with this screen protector, so I've ordered 1 of those cases as well 2 see if it works any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first otter box product I don't likeNot a fan!! I've owned an otter box defender case for every galaxy phone I have owned. The screen protection with the case always worked great. I was a little disappointed to have to order it separately now, but thought I was getting a good product. I installed it on my s8 as per the instruction and then installed my case. I tried swiping to unlock my phone and noticed i had to apply much more pressure than before. Sending a text became a chore that felt more like using an old type writter, mashing stuck keys. When trying to click on anything, I have to attempt it repeatedly until it finally takes the input. Needless to say I am very disappointed in this product. The defender series case is great but the screen protection is annoying cumbersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like itIf you know what you're doing and have a steady hand this screen protector is the best one out.It is a little pain in the rear to put the case on without peeling the screen protector off, but as long as you put the rubber on first then the hard plastic then it shouldn't be much of an issue.I love it, feels nice, fits screen perfectly, and touch sensibility is the same as before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's working perfectly nowHello, Galaxy S8I gave the defender case a 5 star rating but I don't think it was posted. It's a great case. Now I have installed the alpha glass screen protector and Its working perfectly. Now some of you have reported areas of the screen that have no sensitivity to touch. I had the same problem the first time I installed it. I have *show touches* turned on in developer options,so I know exactly where the problem areas are. The left was really bad and I had to push hard in some center areas. If first you don't succeed try, try again. I very gently lifted the alpha glass up and moved it a thousands of an inch to the right and gently, gently pushed it down into place. So the alpha glass I thought would never work and about to give up on is now so sensitive I can't even tell it's there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going well so farI got this glass protector along with the defender case when I got my new phone a few weeks ago. It came promptly, went on easily, and feels good to use. I've had the odd drop and bang with it, and a determined attack on the screen by one of my cats, and so far its flawless. Considering my last phone screen broke within a fortnight, I'm rather pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RegretsPurchased along with a Defender case for my new Galaxy S8. Without the Defender, its fine - with the Defender, problems arise in the form of insensitivity. The primary issue is that the case pushes on the edges of the glass, causing it to no longer be in contact with the screen of the phone. If the glass were a mm smaller all the way around, even 1/2 mm, it would probably work just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DissapointingI've always been a big fan of Otter box and their products; however, this misses the mark, a few weeks after using the product it is already starting to come off the phone. I followed the directions correctly and had no issues using it on my Samsung S8, but now the screen protector is lifting off of the top and bottom slightly and makes a clicking noise when the phone is touched there. Sadly I will be replacing this with another product. It does a good job of protecting the screen; I just wish it was better at staying attached to the phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Touch screen sensitivityHalf of my screen is very touch sensitive while the other half I have to press with all my might in order to do anything. I placed the protector exactly in the middle like instructed and had extra screen on one side. Mind you that really isn't a big deal including the fact that it is a infinity screen which I understand is a difficult thing to prefect but when I paid roughly 49 dollars, I would prefer to have at least a fully functional screen protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not ReliableIt is the best screen protector around because it's the only screen protector that wraps around the screen because the screens are curved, but sometimes certain parts of the phone screen won't work for some reason.

But be ready because the screen might have some issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor DesignI ordered this screen protector and a Symmetry case as soon as they became available. I received them on the same day as my Galaxy S8. Minutes after installation, the screen protector popped off - twice. As with other curved products on the market, adhesive is only used along the edges of the glass. In addition to being unsightly, this is not adequate for a proper hold. This also makes the screen unresponsive. I returned it on day one. I expected more from Otterbox.

I figured I'd buy the alpha screen protector and still get that nice s8 screen feel. However after installation I discovered the phone became completely inoperable. The whole right side of my phone lost all touch sensation. Also the glass itself is a terrible fit, hangs over the edges way to far and wouldnt even sit comfortable in the otterbox case. Quite obviously otterbox rushed the launch of this product to be available for preorders with out any testing and have produced a dud of a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interferes with Edge SensitivityInstallation was easy; unfortunately, the glass interferes with the edge touch sensitivity so that one side or the other only responds when pressed hard. I tried reinstalling the cover several times, using the earpiece cutout as the guide, but each time either the left or the right side would require pressing down much more firmly than on the rest of the screen. Adding a Commuter Case made the problem worse, whereby the protector would make a clicking sound when depressed (I think the case was squeezing the protector and causing it to lift). And for an edge phone, where the display stretches over the edges, this ruins the usability of the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpha Glass Screen Protector with Defender CaseBy itself, the Galaxy S8 Alpha Glass Screen Protector is very good. However, it does not pair well with the S8 Defender case. It took 3 tries to get the screen and case to fit "right". But, it appears that the very tight fit seems to lift the protector up a fraction, especially around the edges, resulting in reduced sensitivity compared to not installing the case.In order to get the protector and case to eventually work together, I positioned the protector in place without pushing down to adhere. Then, I installed the case, thus allowing a small amount of freedom during installation.Basically, the protector is very good on it's own but not so good with the Defender case.

Yes, but the alpha glass takes away the screens sensitivity and the use of the edges along with the top and bottom slides of the screen! Only way any of it even remotely works has been to adjust the covers layout on the phone itself every once and a awhile....not satisfied with design at all, miss the standard defender case over my screens...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waste of time and moneyThe alpha glass protector significantly reduced the touch sensitivity of the phone screen. Trying to type a quick message on the keyboard took 10 times longer and trying to swipe down from the top of the screen to get to your notifications was nearly impossible. Very frustrating and time consuming. I ended up switching to an iPhone because there's no good way to protect the screen on the S8

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not impressedI bought this item for my husband. I put it on exactly how the directions say and put his otterbox defender case over it. Within a day dust and dirt got underneath the glass. By day 3 the dust prevented him from being able to use buttons correctly. I told him to take it off and so i could return it. It shattered into peices when trying to take off.

Directions say it is a one time application and best used with Otter box cases. Once I out the case on (the next day) there was lost sensitivity in 1 corner, and the screen cracked within a day of adding the case. It cracked from the pressure of the case, because there was no impact or other pressure put on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horrible, doesn't fit wellI purchased for the Galaxy S8 because the Alpha Glass was great on my S5. This Alpha Glass for the S* doesn't sit well on the screen, has a sharp bottom edge (doesn't curve over), seems like it floats a little on the phone, and worse, it's horrible on all edges (which you need to be able to use on this phone). It feels as if it is too tight for the phone, so you cannot get proper contact with the phones screen. You have to press way to hard to get through any process. This product needs a recut or redesign, something is very wrong with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HorribleVery disappointed! So sad, I have alot of my devices on otterbox defender cases. One of the things I liked the most was that I didn't have to spend extra money on a separate display protector. I hate the fact that otterbox took that feature away on the galaxy 8 defender case. To top it off, the alpha glass, is a horrible product, for such a steep price. It doesn't fit the screen properly, the case didn't clip back on correctly and I couldn't work my phone properly; had to push down on the screen super hard. Took it right off. So SAD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DisappointedI bought this screen protector about a week ago along with a Defender series case for my new S8. Alone, the Alpha Glass may be a great screen protector but it does not work with the Defender series case. Otterbox claims that they work together great but in reality they are not compatible by no means. The Alpha Glass is pushed away from the screen and renders the phone unusable due to pressure sensitivity issues.

I had the retailer install the cover, but within two days it started to come loose from the phone.I knew Otter Box was known for quality, so I got onto their website and ordered a protective glass cover to replace to original one I had bought. When I received it I followed the instructions to install the new one. Everything seemed to be fine for about the week, then it began to lift in the middle of the phone. I pushed it back down, but it continues to lift. Not really happy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpha Glass ProtectorI bought the defender case and was disappointed that Otter box took away the built in screen protector so I bought the alpha glass screen protector. With the cost of the defender case and the alpha glass it was a bit steep. I have yet to drop my phone or anything in order to see how well the glass actually protects but it is thicker than the previous model so I feel confident it will protect very well. My only issue is because of the thickness it takes away from the sensitivity of the screen and you have to press much harder on the screen for it to work.

It doesn't appear my phone's screen is shattered (I havent removed the broken alpha glass as I don't want to be completely unprotected while waiting for the replacement to arrive) which is a plus of the product but my previous otterbox cases protected my phone without sustaining any damage to the case which is what I look for in a product. I don't want to replace the glass every time the phone drops, as I am clumsy and I have two kids who use my phone..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The phone is the problemThe Alpha Glass Screen Protector for my Samsung Galaxy S8 is doing what it is supposed to do.However; once installed it makes it difficult to get any buttons on the edge of the curved screen to work. I really have to press on the protector to get them to function.Also, because the protector does not fasten to the face but only the edges of the screen, it has now lifted and more pressure is needed to get any of the icons to react.it is no longer a touch screen but a press screen.I don't know why the protector can't be attached to the face as well as the edge, but if it is due to something in the glass of the phone then it is a phone issue not a protector issue.If Otterbox can come up with a protector that sticks to the whole glass and not just the edges then it would be a much better product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not adhere around ear pieceFirst off I love their products and customer service it out of this world. But, sadly the alpha glass does not fit the screen properly I'm sure it's great quality but does not adhere around ear piece which is a issue if you plan on using the notification bar. But the touch sensitivity gets worse as the other adhesive releases. I got a replacement in hopes I received a defective one. Same thing happened spent every bit of 10 mins cleaning and making sure everything was perfectly lined up for it to do the same also put a weight on the phone and applied heat in hopes I could make it work. Refund issued now. Otter box is having a meeting soon hopefully this will be addressed and corrected soon I would love to have the protection I trust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from poorly thought out productI purchased The S8 alpha glass, S8 commuter slipcover and outer plastic. Like many other reviews here, the alpha glass does not fit correctly by itself and makes the phone totally unusable. The site says about same sensitivity with the glass on, and I admit in the middle of the phone with only the glass on, it does work well. But, the S8 is an edge phone - with just the glass on it takes 3-4 hard pressed swipes to get the side menus; with the glass and case, side swiping is simply not possible. the case pushes the glass off contact with the screen no matter how carefully I assemble it. The case by itself works just fine - the glass by itself work, but not like it should - the two simply cannot coexist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has potentialI bought the glass screen protector for the Galaxy s8 and it was a bad decision. My screen was not as responsive as it was without the screen protector. I figure it is because there is only adhesive on the edges of tyhe screen protector. It would be fine for the first hour or so but after some use I found myself having to pressure down the screen protector because it wasn't sticking to the screen only the edges. This would cause an invisible while screen bubble that would force me to put more pressure on my phone to get a response. I work at a cell phone store but I dont feel confortable selling the screen protector. Great idea, a lot of room improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of What's LeftI purchased two (one for me and one for my husband) and we both have had similar issues. All in all - we like it. When it's properly fitted it works great. The hardest part is finding the "sweet spot" and keeping it there. We find that the screen shifts and that is inconvenient. My glass protector broke within a week and I am currently using the one from the warranty. My husband's just cracked and I need to see about replacing it. We both would prefer to have the case and screen protector combined. Purchasing two items (case and screen protector) that are more expensive than what use to be one product is off putting. To us, it misses the mark. However, it's the product we are most comfortable using to protect our phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bitter disappointmentI've had this Alpha Glass Screen Protector on my Galaxy S8 for five days and I absolutely hate this Alpha Glass Screen Protector (AGSP). I wish I could give the AGSP negative numerical stars for this review. I should have listened to the other negative reviews concerning how the AGSP adversely decreases the sensitivity of the touch screen on the Samsung S8. Any icons, numbers and letters on the outer edge of the Samsung S8 are almost impossible to activate due to the AGSP not allowing the "touch" sensitivity to pass through to the touch screen. I have reapplied the AGSP several times and nothing works to fix this sensitivity problem. I hope OtterBox will take this worthless AGSP back and give me a full refund. I will keep the Defender OtterBox portion of this purchase as the Defender works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Sensitivity LossThe touch screen on the s8 is difficult at best with this screen protector. It sometimes doesn't register any input at all. Though it does what the description says, your screen will be protected. Perhaps too well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Screen Protector Unsatisfactory Lacks Sensitivity23 hours after receiving my S8, it corner impacted on the garage floor. I waited until I received my Case and Alpha Glass Screen Protector before I activated the replacement phone. Installation was easy and without issue. However, the screen protector made the phone unusable; Apps required multiple taps to open and it required hard pressure and multiple attempts to open the notifications and pull downs. Very disappointing for the price point and product reputation. . This product will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst ever! DO NOT Purchase!I purchased one the day I got my phone within 2 days the screen was cracked. Lucky, my service provider exchanged it. Now 5 days later the new one cracked. I have had screen protectors on all my phones and never had one crack from being in my pocket as was the case both times. Upon farther examination, I realized the curve shape of the class does not fit snug around the edges leaving a void so the slightest pressure the screen protector cracks. I am not happy and I will be demanding a refund!

I was hoping it would eliminate glare problems I have when using my phone in the seeming more and more brightly lit areas in the city and maybe the protector is providing some help here. But if you are hoping for it to eliminate glare problems, it hasn't done this for me. I know that the protector doesn't claim to be a glare filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchaseI bought this screen protector about a week after buying my galaxy 8s, I am very happy with the protection provided. The product is easy to apply. One note that should be made is that it does affect the touch sensitivity and for the phone to work best after application the screen touch sensitivity should be on the highest setting to help ensure response by the phone. I have used the screen protect with both the Otter box defender case and symmetry and it has remained in place without issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DisappointedI was excited to find a screen protector available before the phone launched. I opened the phone box and installed the protector right away with no issues. After a week of using the phone I was ready to return it because I thought something was wrong with the touch screen. I was getting carpal tunnel trying to push down hard enough or enough times to get it to react. Finally in frustration I removed the screen protector and WOW my s8 reacts instantly. I don't know if it doesn't fit snug enough or the glass is too thick, but Otterbox needs to go back and reevaluate this design.

Loved the look and feel of it, and it was perfect for screen protection. However, I'm a fast typer and have quick fingers when I use my phone, and the screen greatly reduced the screen's functionality. I had to long-press or even hold keys for them to work when I had the screen on. Texting & email became nigh-impossible. Unfortunately, this product was not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waste of moneySince "glass screen protectors" came out, I have used them on my phones. I recently purchased a Galaxy 8; LOVE the phone, NOT so much the Atlas Screen Protector. I installed it and planned to wait 72 hours before installing the Commuter Case (techno geeks have suggested waiting for a proper "seat" because using certain cases can cause curved screen protectors to pop off). FIRST off, there were "bubbles"; can't see them, but can hear them AND the screen's sensitivity is gone. SECOND off, protector cracked in upper left AND right hand corners when I attempted to smooth out the bubbles although I really don't know when it happened as I did not notice the cracks until I got to work this morning. SO, all in all the screen protector was on my phone a total of 36 hours and it is TOAST. It was a HUGE waste of money, I have NEVER spent this much on a screen protector (or case for that matter) before, but then again I never spent that much on a phone that I needed to protect. DESIGN FLAW in the screen protectors perhaps? I know the curved screen DOES present some difficulties. Both of my daughters bought the SAME phones AND protective devices... TWO of us have had issues so far. Would not recommend this product at this time...maybe later if design is changed up...?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit properly with Commuter caseI got my phone a week ago, along with an accessory package consisting of the Otterbox Commuter case and the Alpha Glass screen protector. I loved the idea of having a rigid screen protector, since the case has to be recessed on the edges to accommodate the screen curvature. Unfortunately, I cannot get the screen protector and case to work together for any extended period of time--inevitably, either the case or the screen protector shifts in a way that causes the screen protector to lift off the screen, severely impairing the touch sensitivity. It works great without the case, but that's not helpful since I'm more concerned about having the case than the screen protector.When I installed the Alpha Glass, I carefully cleaned the screen, lined up the protector and thoroughly pressed it down, as instructed, before inserting it into the Commuter case. I promptly started encountering the same problems described in many reviews: the screen would not register touch easily, especially pulling down the top menu, and there was a popping sound as the Alpha Glass popped away from the screen as soon as pressure was released. I realized that the top edge of the screen protector was not underneath the rubber case, pushing the protector away from the screen, so I removed the case to re-adjust. With the case off, the screen protector works beautifully. I put the case on, even more carefully, to make sure that all sides of the rubber overlapped the screen protector--this is difficult to do, because sliding it into the hard shell tends to make some parts of the rubber case shift off of the screen protector. Once I managed it, the screen worked great...until I carried it in my pocket for a little while and the same problems returned. I removed and carefully reinstalled the case--again it worked great, until a few hours in my pocket caused the case and/or Alpha Glass to shift. Rinse and repeat all week. After all the fiddling around and repeatedly removing/replacing the case, bits of dust migrated underneath the screen protector. I completely removed the screen protector, cleaned it again with a microfiber cloth, and replaced both screen protector and case. Still having the same problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure, tough, OK on sensitivityThe Alpha glass seems to fit well, be well designed and be tough. But because of the curved screen design (this is my guess anyway) any screen touch buttons on the curved section are really quite difficult to 'click'. The sensitivity or function of the glass at this point is not great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Case good, glass rubbishThe back case is great. It fits well and protects my phone wit hout feeling to big or bulky. The Alpha glass on the other hand is terrible. Although it looks like it fits, it's not as snug as it should be and so effects the touch sensitivity on the phone to t he point that it won't function. I was then having to take the glass off when playing games or using certain apps and the one time i did this it fell out of my hand and onto the floor and cracked in 6 different places. I got a replacement free of charge but have not bothered to pit it back onto my phone as its just rubbish. A waste of money in my opinion

More pressure may be required to have the case 'settled onto the phone before the touch sensitivity improves. Once that happens, I would be happy to suggest this case to others.

When it is on the phone, by itself, it is ok, but not very sensitive around the edges but when it is in the case, you just about have to punch the phone to get the screen to react to commands. Making a call and texting is difficult because the amount of pressure on each area of the phone has to be different and is slow. I thought there was a problem with the phone, but when I took the glass off, the phone worked very well.

I am noticing the Commander Case is getting under the edges of the Glass screen protector and pushing the protector up slightly which is causing the touch screen issues. Either the Commander case needs to wrap around a little higher or the Alpha Glass needs to continue further down, another MM would do the trick. Sucks cause the molds for both products must be a pretty penny if replacement is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unacceptable lack of touch sensitivityBought it last week and am looking to return it already. Doesn't stick properly and there's a tiny gap between screen and glass which makes it too difficult to manage and control touch screen. Good in theory but unless I got a poor example it's not ready yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracks too easyHad one on my S6, it lasted over 2yrs no issues. I have now gone through TWO of these protectors - one cracked in my pocket while i was walking around, the other cracked when it fell on carpet a week after applying it. Definitely not going back for a 3rd...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't purchaseI was excited to get a screen protector for my new phone, Galaxy S8. Unfortunately, it really is a bother when it comes to touching the screen. Since this phone is a touch screen, it's a bother. It's almost as if it is bending, but I have tyo press hard to select anything. Kind of a hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No touch sensitivityI bought this screen protector with a commuter case in advance of my new s8. With device in place phone was almost useless as the s8 has a home button built into the screen and the protector did not allow response without unnessacary force.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seemed like a good ideaI put the alpha glass on per instructions after watching the video several times. Then I put phone in defender case. By the time I was done, the glass was scratched, cracked and shattered..dissapointed! Also, shipping took 2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not function with the Defender CaseThe plastic inner shell of the Otterbox Defender case compresses the edges of S8 Screen Protector to the point where only vigorous finger pressure yields functional results. Other than this discontinuity, I remain a loyal customer to the Defender series and to Otterbox...knowing their Customer Service will come to the reduce...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ok not the bestAt first I was very unhappy because it wouldn't set properly and I had to press on the apps and keyboard much harder than normal. So I removed it and put back on twice and finally after a week it seems to have set properly and pushing apps and keyboard are at a normal touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Otterbox best effortI have protected all of my Samsung Galaxy series phones since the S3 with Otterbox Defender Cases. Working construction, they have been invaluable to my daily routine giving me piece of mind that these very expensive phones are well protected. I have never had one complaint about Otterbox products until now. The first is the S8 case no longer comes with the integrated screen protection as many of its Defender series predecessors. I don't want screen protection, I NEED screen protection. This was why the Defender series was unequalled to its rivals, it gave 100% assurance against the elements. I purchased the case with the knowledge that there was no screen and purchased the Alpha Glass. The glass is supposed to mesh flawlessly with the S8 case but leaves much to be desired. While I have no sensitivity issue that others have had I do have issues with the glass popping off of the screen if not precisely aligned. Another annoyance is the constant clicking between the Alpha Glass and the Phone screen. The Alpha Glass also distorts the rubber at the bottom ports. Why Otterbox chose to eliminate the screen is beyond imagination. If a better design from a competitor comes along I will take my loyalty elsewhere for this downgrade from the Defender Line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks in a small, tight packagePRO:Trim lines and great to use in the pocket. All buttons work as they should. Great fit to the phone and easy to remove and re-fit.Slight ridge at the top and bottom of the cover lifts the glass off the surface for face down meetings and provides a slip free gripAlpha glass fits fantastic and real easy to install.All ports are accessible without removing the cover. Including the ear point for using square attachment.Ports for camera and finger print are fantastic and easy to get to.CON:Plastic "alpha glass" makes the touch unresponsive on the edges, top swipe and side swipe mostly requires a heavy touch. Side letters "a & l" and numbers "1 & 0" mostly need to be pressed harder.Bright colours are missed in the lineup and drab pascals are the only choice. Lime greens, vivid pinks and vibrant blues no where to be seen...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does NOT do exactly as it says on the tin.On the package there is a picture of a metal ball coming at speed towards the glass which would suggest it is strong and durable enough to with stand this impact. Yet after I applied my glass screen protector and tried to put On my silicone phone case it shattered into pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protectorHave had it on the S8 for a month. Very happy but have not dropped the phone. A friend dropped his after one week, the glass protector broke bit not the screen. So guess it andcthe Otter Box did their job. The case does not pop the glass off. Looses a little sensitivity around the edges. The screen should come with a monting frame like the Zagg screens to put it on 100% correctly as it took me a couple of times as it did pop of with the case if itbis not on exactly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOPE...Bought this for my Galaxy s8 phone but sadly it did not work for me after installing and using an otterbox defender series case. Had to push too hard on some buttons(mainly on bottom and curved edges)just to work. Too much of a struggle to keep and use on an everyday basis. The only good thing is it was very clear to see through. Th end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible!I bought this a couple weeks ago. The screen has already cracked at the top. It slides around and the Commuter case will actually get under it and push it up at the top. I find myself unable to use it as a touch screen. I have to press everywhere to use it. I will avoid using my phone sometimes because I hate using it so much with the screen protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs improvementI purchased this product thinking it would be the best solution for my new curved screen Galaxy S8. Unfortunately it made using my new phone a terrible experience. Some sections of the touch screen were not responsive due to the screen protector not being flush with the screen. I tried it out for a day thinking that it was in my head and that I just needed to get used to it but time did not fix this issue for me. After that I just took it off and forgot about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good by itself, but not with the defender caseI've had this on the Samsung S8 the last couple weeks and have found that the defender series case actually peals the glass up at the edges, making the touch screen almost impossible to use at times. I need to have a case on this phone do to my job, but it looks like I won't be able to use the screen protector along with it.
