I looked around, haven't seen many review. Amazon was pretty bad (cheaper option though).

This is little pricier but it is the OEM Asus screen protector, so should be good for the phone;

A cheaper option would be this; http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_ ... oeni04msg3

both sim card and sd card can go inside at the same time?

It is scary to watch some of the video on youtube (stacking up the nano SIM and micro SD). There is huge risk that the SIM tray will be stuck closed

I am using Fido data (LTE) in SIM#1 with another Chatr SIM for calls (likely to be ditched if trial of Textme works out well)
No SD card of course

Has anyone found a good screen protector for the Zenfone 3?

Reading reviews and find lots of people having issues due to the curved screen.

I know someone who has a zenfone 3. The screen protector is tiny, there's lots of edge on every side that's not protected. Almost makes putting on a protector useless. There are lots of options on eBay if you can tolerate the long shipping time.

Thanks. Seems like a general issue for the zenfone.

I will buy a case first then think about the screen protector

Both my daughter and I just bought Zenfone 3s. I have the flip cover and she has a ringke case on hers. I've ordered a few inexpensive screen protectors - all of which will take roughly 3-4 weeks to arrive - and I'll report back on what we find. Given what I've read about the curved screen issue I wasn't willing to spend much but thought we'd try the less expensive ones and write off the cost if we're not happy with the results. We've always had both screen protectors and cases on our phones (with none of them ever so much as scratched much less shattered and that's with a couple small-ish drops each year) so going without the protector is a little strange for us. Love the phones though! Such a great purchase.

Got my phone used for $250.

Great phone to use so far especially at that price. The phone is smooth and a much needed upgrade over my Nexus 5. Asus does install a lot of apps but they can be hidden so it wasn't too bothersome after I disabled them. I like the camera as well. I got a screen protector but like all the reviews out there for every zenfone 3 screen protector, they are all too small.

Coming back to say these are the best ones we bought: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01GFLARDM/ref ... TE_3p_dp_1

Ordered on the 5th, arrived on the 9th. Sent from Germany. They're slightly smaller than the screen but that's due to the Asus curved screen and I'd rather have them be slightly smaller than be sticking out over the screen (as complained about with some other protectors). Easy to apply, cut-outs in the right place, good quality esp for price.
