Are there such things like rectangular glass screen protectors?

Hi everyone!

I have ZTE Axon (A1R) and fitted glass protector doesn't work for me - the capacitive buttons refuse to work under glass unless I touch back of the phone the same time.

So, I try to find simple rectangular glass protector so I can put over screen only. The size is 122-124x70.

I tried to find it on eBay and AliExpress but no luck...

Anyone?

Thanks

The axon and axon pro have the exact same chassis. Try searching for the pro model as well. Some eBay sellers show pictures of the phones. So try to match one that looks like the axon or axon pro. I know a few colleagues who have the axon. I will ask if they purchased their screen protector locally or on eBay.

Thanks!
Yes, I know about Axon and Pro - I bought my case like that.

This capacitive buttons issue drives me crazy! I have a friend with Axon - same problem...

I cut clear plastic protector for the screen only but it doesn't last long (have to carry the phone in the pocket at work).

Thanks again!

Could you measure and score your existing glass one with a razer and then cut it to size?

Edit - hmm, maybe don't try this. It seems tempered glass can't be cut.

I had the same problem with an off brand cell. I went over to Pacific Mall of TO. Ask one of the many shops to search it. The first shop tried 4 close ones. They found one almost matching 100% my phone.. That cost $10
They have thousand of them in clear plastic. It was very easy for them to match
