So recently I bought a Tempered Glass Privacy screen protector with a new screen I replaced on an iPhone 5 so it was protected from day 1. I think that was one of the biggest mistakes I made. First off, the screen protector was made out of some plastic and not legitimate glass and you could definitely tell. I had one from Bodyguardz on my brother's phone and the Privacy one felt really cheaply made compared to it. The privacy one also could flex more, definitely more than a real tempered glass one. Also, it really wasn't too much of a Privacy Screen Protector. It was just a tinted black screen protector and you could barely see the screen in normal lighting conditions at full brightness. I stupidly decided to let it go and I used it normally for a few months. Fast forward to a week ago and I accidentally dropped my iPhone on concrete. I should have been fine with that "tempered glass" protector I had, but when I examined my phone, it looked like there was no damage done to it and it was fine. But when I turned on my phone, the screen was severely cracked and it looked really bad. I was pretty surprised. The protector essentially did nothing and just stayed intact while my screen cracked underneath. Not good. I ended up needing to replace the screen *again*. $60 total spent in repairs on it. The purpose of this thread mainly was to inform everyone to beware of cheap tempered glass protectors. A lot of times they aren't real tempered glass and they don't do a good job protecting your phone. Expensive tempered glass protectors are expensive for a reason - They at least have decent quality.
