why doesn’t the Zagg glass for iPhone XR doesn’t go all the way to the top leaving a tiny gap ?

I got the Zagg glass replacement installed at At&t store.

Because they didn’t install it right. It’s a common issue with screen protectors on notch-y iPhones. You’ll see that there’s probably some excess glass at the bottom.

Annoyed the hell out of me the first time.

Should I leave it be for now till it cracks and I can claim warranty again ?

Looks like a cheap brand to begin with. The cutout for the notch doesn't even fit.

That is an official Zagg Invisible Shield glass +. I do warranty replacements for Zagg Screen Protectors.

If that's the case, it looks like Zagg choose the lowest bidder. I've never seen such a poor fitment of the notch. How could the right side fit with so much gap on the left side?

If you have a proper look its not installed right.

Op forget that rubbish type get a full screen if you have to use one, personally i don't and use the screen as is.

No installer in the world can correct a design defect.

The glass fits on the right but has a gap on the left. The only time I’ve seen such a poor design was in mid-2017 when vendors were still guessing the dimensions of the notch.

If you see on the side the screen proctor is definitely not installed correctly, it's more towards the right (I'm not talking about the notch area, more on the general of the actual side of the screen).

I agree it’s not installed correctly. But once you shift the glass to the left, the right edge of the notch will be covered by glass. The notch cut is simply too small.

i would recommend picking up a full screen glass protector off amazon. it covers the notch as well. most of them include a frame to clip on your screen so you can't even mess up the alignment. you can find them for about $10 / 3 pack.
