Dealership took the thing off mine before it was delivered to me :(
lol i made a special note for the dealership to not remove the film. my wife has a thing about peeling those things, and that was the mother of all protective films.

the MXO is great, makes the screen look sharp and is buttery smooth to the touch, no issues yet. i havent really had any problems with glare so far.
I had an extra screen protector from my old Galaxy Tab 3 (8 inch screen) that actually works pretty well for the Civic's screen. Only $8.

Hows the screen protectors holding up for you guys in summer heat? I got a tempered glass one on eBay and after a couple days in Toronto heat it completely destroyed the adhesive coating.

Thanks.

Man shipping is so expensive for a piece of plastic to Canada from Photodon lol... going to attempt some cheap plastic ones from eBay first. The glass one was super nice but it's a bummer the heat killed the adhesive. It wasn't even the side that contacts the screen but the side that contacts the glass.

I got mine from Photodon as well. It's been a year now and still in perfect condition. It is summer season here in Dubai and we are getting 48-50 deg celcius (118+ fah). :thumbsup:

Yea shipping is bogus, I've definitely felt what you're going through. I must say that though...my Photodon looks as good as the first day I put it on, even with the Toronto heat.

I got quoted $50USD+ to ship to Australia.
I ended up using a freight forwarder, which cost me $15USD
Photodon need to review their shipping. Its crazy!

Well if anyone is doing a group by for Photodon in GTA let me know. I'd be interested in splitting the shipping costs!

Nahh. Ebay has Civic 16/17 tempered glass screen protectors for $14 shipped. Plastic screen protectors are 2 for $3 shipped. I think the time has passed for this arse-raping from Photodon (they should be ashamed).

The tempered glass one I got from eBay got destroyed by the summer heat, which is why I'm considering the ones from Photodon. Price is ridiculous... But if it lasts its worth it. I have an order for a tempered glass one from aliexpress hopefully this one can handle the heat.

What happened to the glass one? Did the adhesive fail?

Yup. It used a film adhesive between the screen and the tempered glass. Tons of mini bubbles formed on the side that was on the glass or something and made it look like crap. I should've took a picture. It looked like it was peeling but it wasn't really. You just couldn't get rid of the small bubbles once it formed, its as if the adhesive was melting.
