    I've had a GodoSmith Ice Max 3D protector on my phone since October. Initially, I had issue with the protector adhering to the screen, but GodoSmith sent me a replacement which worked great, and I haven't had any problems, until this morning.

    I was getting out of my car when my phone slipped out of my pocket (from the sitting position), and my phone hit the asphalt. I saw that the Ice Max 3D was cracked, but I thought to myself, "That's it's job, to crack and protect the iPhone screen."

    However, as I began removing the "protector" I noticed something awful: my iPhone's entire LCD was also spiderwebbed. I'm so disappointed that this "tempered glass" with "Safety Protector screen, even the edge: Anti-Shatter Film, If broken, breaks into small pieces that are not sharp, making it safer than other glass products" completely failed.

    -Will

    P.S. The "anti-shatter Film" is also marketing B.S., as many sharp shards broke off from the incident.

    A protector like this won't prevent your screen from shattering in all possible cases. Do not rely on a screen protector for impact protection. A piece of glass isn't going to change the laws of physics.

    Why not? It was blessed with holy water and fortified with unicorn tears. You aren't going to tell me those were wasted money and effort as well, are you?

    Not saying this story isn't true, but thats the worst single drop result I have ever seen. So many impact points. Do you drive an airplane?

    Thanks. Yes, the damage does look bad.

    Sadly, I don't commute in a Cessna; it's only a Toyota 4Runner. I believe the initial impact point was the top left corner, but then the phone bounced/slit on the ground.

    The damage to the iPhone screen is from that one fall alone.

    The damage to the screen protector is from both the fall and removing the protector from the phone. That, of course, caused more damage to the protector itself.
