Re: Will fingerprint reader with with a tempered glass screen protector?

That's awesome news.  Just ordered a 2-pack from Amazon.  Can you confirm how the texture feels relative to the OEM screen or the tempered glass versions?  It's been several years since I've used a film-based protector, and I recall them being quite sticky/tacky - certainly no where near as slippery as the OEM glass or the tempered glass variants.

My phone won't arrive until tomorrow.  Can you tell me whether the FPS can be used to wake a phone with a screen that is off?  IOW, if the phone is laying on a table, display up, but dark, can you wake and unlock it by using your fingerprint, or do you first have to press the power button?

Fps will become active by proximity sensor and you can unlock without touching the power button.

It is definitely not as slick as a tempered glass screen protector. It does have a slightly tacky texture to it. And if you take a look reflections on the screen with the screen powered off, you can see a slight texture to it. All that said, I'm still very happy with it.

Ok... Drumroll please...

 

The Skinomi is AWESOME with the sensor!!! Previously, with the tempered glass, the sensor got about 70% success with my thumb entered 5 times. Now? The thing is entered 4 times and IT CANNOT MISS. And, it responds faster. No question, hands down, go with the Skinomi.

Well that didn't take long.  1 hour after receiving the package and opening the phone, it slipped out of my hand on to the floor (about a 2' drop)....

Nah, those things never work out for me.  Besides, I got the phone for $120  with the Best Buy / Verizon promo.  You buy the phone outright for $120 and activate a line of service with VZ.  Since price of phone is not tied to a contract, you can immediately call and cancel the service and keep the phone.   So, my price for this phone was $131 with taxes, and I pop in my Total Wireless card and I'm good.

 

Most phone insurance have deductible that approach what I paid for the phone.

 

Moto will fix the display for $150 + $25 for advance shipping replacement... Which is obviously more than a new one.  So, I ordered another one from Best Buy (it will be here on Tue).  

 

In the meantime, I found suppliers of "OEM" Z4 OLED displays (with FPS) for $21! on AliExpress!  I've already replaced my G5+ screen twice in two years, so I know the mechanics of it, and it's not complicated.    Whether it's a 1:1 replacement and fully functional remains to be seen.  But for $21, I can't afford to NOT try the repair myself.

 

So I'll end up with two phones for $260 + $21.   May swap out wife's Moto G7 I got her a few weeks ago.  The camera on the Z4 is noticeably better.

 

I'll be honest though, when the phone fell face down on a concrete floor from about 2' up, and landed face down, I knew.  I knew before touching it, that it'd be shattered.  All of my Moto phones have had cracked screens.  I don't know if I've gotten more clumsy or I'm harder on phones than in the past, but I've never had any other phones break screens -ever.

I have the SPARIN Screen Protector for Moto Z4, Tempered Glass Screen from amazon

 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RZS5SJ1

 

and it works with the fingerprint but it's not perfect... I now wanna try the Skinomi TechSkin Full Coverage.

 

Do they make a Glass type screen protector for the Z4?

I think Skinomi only makes the dual layer plastic screen protectors (and phone wraps).
