    I bought a Larmor GGS screen protector for my new 5-T.
    I chose the version for the 5-R, thinking that there is no difference between these two models.
    But... the touch screen is not working under the Larmor as stated in the description of the manufacturer.
    Is there a difference in the screen between 5-R and 5-T or is this glass protector just not compatible with touch/swifel screen although described as working by GGS!?!?!?!

    Sent the Larmor back to Amazon for refund.
    Bought a Vikuiti MySunshadeDisplay Displayschutzfolie ADQC27 now...
    We'll see if in attach it bubble free or if I will go crazy over it...

    That sucks.

    Hopefully this one works better.

    I tried to get a screen protector for my 5R. I contacted a few eBay suppliers who all said that their product was only suitable for the 5N and not the 5R. Seems to me you are the same sort of boat that I was in.
    I ended up using a cut down protector film from my old mobile phone. It works fine and has already saved my screen.

    Good luck

    Funny how the screen guard doesn't work with NEX-5T. Does this mean its touch sensitivity is lower than its predecessors?

    I suspect they changed the way the touchscreen works!?
    I don't know the correct englisch descriptions now...
    capacitive?
    resitif?
