    So today is a sad day for me, cracked my phone slightly.

    My oneplus 5t had a sandstone case and tempered glass protection from oneplus and fell from my pocket (3feet/90 cm) It never had a scrach prior to the drop.

    The display did not survive either, I have a corner crack as seen in the last photo. It is very dissapointing because my Oneplus One survived 4 years with no case and 2$ tempered glass protectors from **********. The 20$ tempered glass from oneplus is kinda soft and didn't get the job done.

    So the conclusion, buy 3rd party tempered glass protection :)

    Unfortunately, I've had a similar experience with the official OnePlus 5 tempered 3D glass screen protection.
    My OnePlus 5 fell from about 23 inches (60 cm) to the ground and the screen protector had a crack across the whole screen.
    Luckily, the phone itself survived but I was still survived it cracked that easily.
    (I'll add pictures of the screen protector if I'm able to find them)

    Im of the opinion the screen protector will only protect the phone from scratches and very short drops. 3ft is about pocket hight.

    But it's not worth the money to only protect from scratches to be honest. It's also mentionable that it's a glass protection. With that being said it's obviously more than just a scratch protection.

    I have the official 3D tempered glass protector from OnePlus on my OnePlus 3T and it survived 2 drops from 130 cm and the glass and the phone survived. Could it be that OnePlus stopped making quantity products?

    Yeah I don't buy those cases as well because they're fancy and feel nice but the protection from drops always worries me.

    Besides the case or screen protector, it's actually worrying your display broke from such a small drop. Damn

    I ordered a tpu case with the raised edges for drops. So it acts like a cushion for drops.

    But now I'm worried because your drop wasn't very high.

    I miss the days of my Samsung s5, somehow that phone received so much of abuse in it's case and screen protector and somehow ended up looking almost new when I sold it.

    They don't make them like they used guess we have to get those cases designed specific for drops it seems.

    The 5t is still too fragile. Needs am additional tpu before going into the case. Haha

    I remember dropping my Samsung when trying to take a group selfie when drunk. And that's about 190cm onto concrete.

    I mean surely that should be the test these days, dropping your phone while trying to take a selfie at a club drunk. Haha seems like an appropriate and reasonable test [e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    Unlucky bro, its always saddening to see crocked devices. There are individuals who keep saying metal phones resist falls better than glass phones but they always forget 3 things.
    1. The screen is made of glass.
    2. Your luck on the day.
    3. Who built the thing.
    Good luck with the repairs I hope its not too costly.

    The OP 3D screen protector doesn't guarantee 100% protection on a fall. From what I have read, the phone edges (on any phone with a screen protector) are the weakest points. The strongest being the middle of the screen protector. This is not to be translated that the OP 3D screen protector is a bad product.it is not. It just minimizes damage compared to no screen protector at all. This happens to many other phones as well despite the strongest screen protectors

    I won't fix it, the crack is too small to be worth it, I'm just upset my phone isn't immaculate anymore because it is brand new.

    But honestly, from 3 feet, the case and glass protector should've worked.

    I've been using tempered glass protectors for the last 5 years and none of them shattered as badly as this one.

    I dropped my 5t today too, I woke up and was getting dressed. I set the phone down on my dresser and when I finished I went to grab it and it slipped out of my hand on to hardwood floor. somehow it is fine and no cracks. only pre applied screen protector and case that came with the phone!

    Flip cover case has protected my 5t from drops, hits, being stepped on, scratches, etc. Seems as soon as the case is put on bad things happen. I might have ape luck but the phone is still flawless.
