Erm.....that's the purpose of tempared glass..... to protect your screen.... it cracks upon impact instead of your phone screen cracking

So basically, it sacrifices to protect your phone screen

Any idea where to get the tempered glass which can fit into the spigen case? Or rather for edge devices, TPU screen protector are better?

tpu is better in terms of adherence to the screen. but it turns yellow over time, and isn't easy to clean. PET material is easier to clean but edges there always pop up..

Hi,
Fear of screen crack from drop of phone has stopped me from buying Samsung S series phones.
Possible to share what brand of tempered glass screen cover you used and how high were the drops you have had so far.
I am considering either Huawei Mate 9 ($745) or S7 Edge ($700) at similar prices at whymobile or mobyshop. I would buy S7 edge if these screen protection does work!!
Thanks!

Good case protects your screen, tempered glass only prevents scratches.

I thought cases only protect the base, the tempered glass screen protector in this case covers the screen totally will protect screen from cracking when phone is dropped?

What sort of casing are you referring? Can share??
Thanks

Hmm. Getting the otterbox symmetry clear and alpha glass protector.

Reviews for iphone and s7 series went well with the glass protector so can give a try.

Always invest in a good case. Armor type military drop.

Good case prevent screen from cracking when drop.

TG only prevent scratches. 50 cents TG or $50 TG. If u drop head height face down on concrete. Both also will crack the main lcd.

For me I don't use any TG. The touch sensitive and the feel is not the same.

Minor hair line scratches is normal on lcd everyday use. Anyway after 1 year sell to shop only 30 to 50 dollars different if Alot of hairline. Same price as u invested in a good TG.

But of course If u drop on a rock TG can save from deep scratches. Unless u always go to the beaches. Lol.

As long as it is not too thick like a cm thick you should be good.
