Theory that tempered glass screen protectors are harmful for the iPhone 6+ display.

I've heard on three seperate forums now that a tempered glass screen protector may damage the 6+ display. Why? Because the display on the 6+ is slightly flexible, and that a glass protector plastered on to this, may potentially cause the display beneath to crack.

What are your experiences and thoughts on this? I want to do my research before I invest.

Many thanks.

Likely what you're hearing is the opinions of people who really have no idea what they are talking about. Glass screen protectors are arguably more protective than their plastic counterparts as they also offer some drop protection

this makes no sense?

the glass screen protector would just add rigidity and structural support. And if the actual screen is flexible, how would it even crack? The glass screen protector should crack instead?

:confused:

I can't extract any logic from that at all.
I'd wait to buy a glass protector until the edge to edge versions are available; as far as I can see, only the flat protectors are available at the moment which don't adhere where they creep over the curved edges of the screen (i have one)- which makes it look crap.

Why doesn't this forum has the ability to "like" post? I would like all of the replies here.

No offense at all, but if you think about what you said, it really doesn't make any sense.

Er this would only be the case if you had a edge-to-edge screen protector that had a poor fitting and even then it would need a lot of force to do some damage - the ones that aren't edge-to-edge just rest on top of the display so this couldn't harm the display.

The glass really doesn't weigh enough to do any damage.
