Has anyone found a decent non-glass screen protector?

Has anyone found a decent non-glass screen protector?

I hate curved screens! There's no real benefit to the consumer, especially on the XZ which is a slab anyway.
I fitted a screen protector perfectly with no air bubbles or dust underneath and already it is letting air and dust under the edges where it doesn't quite fit the curved portion of the glass. The protector barely covers the working part of the screen as it is and if it were much smaller it would be useless.

With curved screens, always go PTU.
Other materials will just peel up.

Hi Sunking101,

 

I think if ClearCoat is available in your country, it would be nice for Xperia XZ.

Clearcoat can be overpriced and rarely has holes for cutouts, just big ugly blocks missing.
Many of these tpu protectors(clearcoat is one tpu protector) are available and have exact cutouts and good fit.

Just an update.
Just received and fitted a "Ghost shield" protector by Tech gear.
Found on eBay and fitted really easy.
It's a tpu protector but is super polished on touch surface so it feels like glass.

I suggest this protector not only covers the display, it covers the entire device like display, back glass, side and the camera. The are very precise so that it covers the necessary places well.
