    I too have seen other screens break whilst leaving the screen protector intact. Having said that, I too would always look into getting one for peace of mind as it can only help in the majority of mishaps.

    Thank you for the link.

    I ended up getting the Zagg InvisibleShield HD Clear, which looks like it fits exactly like the one you linked. It's literally visible screen edge to visible screen edge. I loathed the way it looked at first, and it bugged me almost to the point where I wanted to take it back.... but I was lazy and didn't feel like driving back over to Best Buy lol. I'm use to it now though (the screen protector, not the lazy bit hehe).

    Feels good to be back on the forums... the flu sucks!

    That's not the tempered glass right? The protectors would have issues going to the edge due to the curvature. I found the tempered glass stick out more because they're thicker. The ones like I have (and probably what you have) are visible at first but so thin they eventually just disappear from normal use.

    It does have somewhat of an issue with the edges (there's a spot on the top edge that just won't stay flat), but I'm use to it now and don't really pay much attention to it. The first week it drove me insane though.

    I "think" this is the shatter proof one. I dunno if I'm allowed to link it, but the exact name is InvisibleShield HDX. Description says "Military Grade™ 3X Shatter Protection: Powerful components, designed to protect military helicopter blades, deliver unmatched impact and break protection."

    I'm not sure why other folks use screen protectors, but I had enough of them and seen enough screenshots over the years to say not everyone buys/uses them for the same reason. Sure some get them hoping that the screen protector will shatter and not their screen, and others get them to stop those annoying microscopic as well as heavy duty scratches.
    I've seen the most expensive protection not protect and the cheap ones protect.

    I personally used them for everything, but most of all....a piece of mind.

    On another note, I would never compare my Body Armor that saved my life to something that saves a phone....HUGE difference. You can buy another phone
    Of course you can compare it. Thank you for your service, btw. It's greatly appreciated. However, my comment had nothing to do with your specific or general elections incident. From a purely scientific perspective that's precisely what happens in both circumstances. The amount of force and how it is distributed being the distinguishing factors. In both cases, the protective material (ceramic plate and tempered glass) absorb and disrupt the kinetic impact and protect the person or item inside or covered. Precisely the same mechanics.

    So I couldn't sleep and decided to get up, went to the restroom and put my phone on the counter. Apparently I didn't set it far enough from the ledge because it toppled off the counter and on to the bathroom rug (not carpet, so no padding). Roughly 29 inches it fell. There was only a night-light on, so I didn't quite see how it landed. No damage to the phone, but the screen protector cracked. You can't really see it in the shot, but there's a hairline crack going down towards the Home button. When I carefully pulled it off the phone it cracked in half (but did not separate) and puffed a fine dust of glass everywhere.

    I just put in a for a replacement, so hopefully Zagg won't flip me any crap (I registered the product at the beginning of Feb). We'll see.

    Glad to see your screen protector did its job. Zagg should not be an issue. They are pretty good for replacements.

    Agreed. They'll have a new one on its way out to you in no time.
