How does a case lift the screen protector?

    I just watched this review and man I'm disappointed that the Incase slider will lift the screen protector. I have a SGP Ultra Clear coming and I was thinking about ordering a Incase Slider case, but now I'm having second thoughts since it'll lift the protector. How does it do that? How do I figure out which case won't have any compatibility issues with an SGP Ultra Clear screen protector?

    I have an SGP protector and got the slider yesterday. The lifting is quite bad on mine. I think I will just have to remove the protector and live without one.

    i had this same problem with my iFrogz Luxe, so I sanded underneath the lip of the case to raise it up a bit and it's fine now

    My incase slider works fine with my SGP oleo, but if you're having issues, it's pretty easy to just trim the top of the protector just enough so it doesn't make contact with the case, slightly round the leading corners too, problem solved. The tiny strip of glass you might leave unprotected doesn't matter as it's not even close to the actual viewable screen.

    Cutting the screen protector does work, but unless you use a paper cutter or something that precise, it will look terrible (IMO). I have done it before and it bugged the heck out of me.

    I like the idea of sanding the case better, but be careful.
