Can somebody recommend the best screen protector, in your opinion ? I know, this topic has been already raised here, but maybe something has changed since that, mine has already a few minor scratches and cracks, so it high time I bought it. :)

Sorry for long post :)
After two years of using nilkin sparkle case , i can tell (since i wasnt fan of flip cases)that the protection was great. but the plastic case made some marks on the sides of the metal frame (yeah i question myself too). the circular window was really cool because of the auto-detect watch mode.
At first i used a full screen glass protector (the one that has color frame, same as my phone white), but the case seem to push the edges but still was fine. It wasnt the best solution because the extra glass was probably thick enough and was giving extra depth to screen touching feel. Another complain about this protector was that the sides or the color frame (whites) was on top of my screen. i noticed it when on dark room i lighted up my screen and realized it was making my screen a bit smaller (others might not have mentioned it), so i removed it and applied a nilkin frost (matte) screen film protector which was making the pixels weird so i uninstalled immediately.
I used the phone without any screen protector for about a year but still protected from flip case. after two years the case had small cracks and missing parts on corners, which made me feel unsafe so i tried to find another one since i was happy with it. But no hope, seems only pink is available nowadays, i use to have a white to match my white phone (i had washed it twice, because it was dirty as hell).
So, now i use an amzer pudding soft matte tpu case which looks good and premium, not so soft or hard (feels protected), but since no flip case i tried a glass protector again, specifically Brotect airGlass (which i think i will replace soon) that doesnt cover the whole screen (i knew in first place).

Thanks for your review, can you provide all product links?

Btw never ever use a frosted screen protector, doesnt matter which brand you choose, it will let your pixels weird.

Im using a nillkin high clear screen protector, it is the best of all I tried.

Right now I use this case.

It isnt that pretty but talking about protection, this one is the best.

I have tried some full screen protectors.
From my experience, full screen protector + case, isnt a good match

Thats an ugly looking case Bruneba :p, but the white/silver one isnt that bad on a white Zuk i bet.

Some time ago i bought this case for my gf's new Xiaomi phone:

I thought something like that would look killer on our Zuk.. But unfortunately a Zuk z2 pro case like that is nowhere to be found. Sigh. Too bad this phone isnt more popular. It deserves more and better accessories lol

I can confirm that :p In fact : It looks AWESOME! :D

For such a low price it's the best protection you can get for the Z2 Pro ;)

So.. A long while ago 1 bought two of these:

https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/Full...065.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dNdY8vP

Can't recommend. Air gets trapped under it resulting in bubbles, and theres some kind of glue provided to smooth out the edges which doesnt work. Finished product looked like junk so i took it off 30 minutes off after applying it. Also, the glass is too big so if you use a back cover like i do, it pinches the screenprotector resulting in more air under the screen protector.

As per Brunebas recommendation i ordered two of these:
https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/Whol...872.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.2ab64c4d79zb88
..Hoping these are kind of like the stock film that comes on the phone. I would seem that glass screen protectors don't really work because of the fact the screen on the Zuk z2 pro is curved a bit. So we need more flexible material like plastic screen protector that comes with the phone. Hope the protector from Aliexpress isn kind of like the original one.

Has anyone tried this one yet?

I had a back cover/case from the same brand (Bakeey) and it was awefull, but maybe the screen protector is OK?

I've noticed they sell that case in pitch black for every other phone but ours: frustrating!
