I’m partial to tempered glass, since I’m paranoid about having to use a screen that is cracked for most of my contract. This one however is literally a piece of junk. It literally only connects to the phone by the very edge of the screen. (Instead of it being a big sticker that adheres to the whole screen.) Fortunately, the only annoyance I experienced was that it connecting that way caused a bubble effect for me. Meaning, it was harder for me to type or access apps. I had to tap A LOT harder than I was used to and was constantly correcting words, because nothing came out correctly. When I returned the item, I commented on my frustration only to have the sales guy tell me worse horror stories he knew of because of the faulty design. Of someone dropping their phone as they were leaving the store, only to have the protector pop off in such a way that the phone itself broke. Poor guy had to buy a new phone because the screen didn’t protect the way it was supposed to. Since the screen protector wasn’t damaged, but the phone was, it wasn’t covered under the protector’s warranty. To me, that is not only faulty design, but also a faulty warranty. Stay as far away from this as possible. The sales guy I spoke to said it would have been better to get the plastic cover. That at least is a big sticker that would adhere properly to the phone, but also not keep you from it, even though it doesn’t offer the greatest protection.
