Dropped my One and the screen cracked (good news though)...

    keithnyc , Sep 23, 2014 :
    Guys: The unthinkable happened...I accidentally brushed the One from my desk and the screen hit the side of a potted plant before it hit the floor. Yup, a cracked screen....BUT it was covered with a tempered glass screen protector that I purchased from a third party site that made a screen protector to fit the One. That screen protector cracked instead of the One's screen (EDIT: guys, please don't flame me with "no pic-didn't happen"; I didn't take a pic using another phone (yeah, I should have...) and have already thrown out the broken screen).

    Honestly, I'm not sure if the One's glass would have cracked instead without the glass cover, but I'm certainly glad I didn't find out. For $7, the peace of mind was worth it (IMHO), and I'm buying another (you can search on Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Oneplus One or pm me). For those like me that never used a tempered glass screen protector before, it's actually pretty cool....it's a layer of tempered glass that faces you which is then layered with a thin plastic layer that holds the glass together if it breaks (that's what's on the side that faces the One and sticks to its screen...it probably also acts somewhat as a shock absorber). When it broke, it was very easy to lift off my still pristine One screen.

    Please do yourself a favor and consider getting any protective tempered glass screen.

    Yup....thanks. I'm pretty careful with my phones (never dropped my Nexus 4 once in two years), but I didn't want to take a chance on this. I've read so many posts from folks who cracked their screen (with all the replies that ask 'Why didn't you have a screen protector?" or the nasty "Be more careful...it serves you right" responses .... ;-)

    Anyway, I wanted to help other folks out.

    That's good to hear. I have a Nillikin tempered glass screen protector and was hoping it will do its job when the time comes. I love it just for the fact that it feels better than the stock glass, fits great too.

    Great to hear that. I haven't dropped mine yet. But temp glass gives a kind of security
