    i have an iPhone 6+ that i would like to buy a DBrand skin for. I want to do this because i have a crack on the fount of my screen and would like to make it look nice again. the cracks are on the part surrounding the screen next tot eh home button. i emailed the skin company and they said if i put the skin on a shattered phone it may cause more damage. so my question is would you classify this as shattered or cracked?

    Sorry this doesn't answer your question, but personally, I would put the price of the skin towards replacing the screen. They're really not that expensive nowadays (several offerings around $40 on Amazon) if you're halfway handy with a screwdriver.

    I see that as cracked. I wouldn’t spend money on a skin. If you want to keep the phone, get the screen fixed, if not, sell as is and get something that isn’t broken.

    I don’t recommend you to apply anything on your screen since it is cracked. As BasicGreatGuy said, repair it before applying anything, or sell it, though I doubt the resell price would still be decent (not like $100 or less).

    Regardless if that is shattered or just cracked do not put a front skin on it. First of all it will not apply on the phone perfectly, because due to the cracks, you will have air bubbles when you put on the front skin, which will not look too good. Secondly, adhesive of the skin may interact negatively with the cracks, but i assume this is unlikely.
    If you prefer to keep it with the cracked/shattered display, I would just use a back/side skin, rather than a front.

    I like your logic. That crack on the iPhone display could potentially expand ith the due of a Dbrand skin, where it could cause more damage easily. I would at minimum take that money spent on a skin and have the display repaired if the OP has the funds and/or intends in selling the device eventually, which will greatly increase the resale.
