    So I was thinking about buying a tempered glass but wanted to try out the cheapest ones and see if they are any good.I bought 3 antiglare films and 3 clear ones.I haven't tried oute the antiglare ones neither felt the texture ( when I try them I'll update this thread ).The first try of putting the film on failed when I was in my room which was pretty clean, the thing is that there is dust in the air so I thought about going in the bathroom.I left the tap opened for 5-10 minutes and then tried again, cleaned the screen and there was no dust left.My second try was perfect and not air bubbles or dust lies under the film.I bought those which cost me all together about 3 euros. The seller had great communication and shipped fast so I recommend him ;) :

    I think the idea is more to protect from scratches. I think even with the best tempered glass screen protector if you drop straight on the screen it will still break. Saying that I just had a cheapo screen protector on my iphone 4 for 3 years and dropped it so many times with no breakage

    You really don't read... I already got them if you read the thread.6 of them cost 3 euros and protect from scratches and minor drops.How much do 6 tempered glass cost? Not sure if it is a waste of money...

    If you're spending over $300 for a new phone, the least you could do is invest in a legit case and screen protector.

    The screen protectors actually protect! That's why they are called protectors.Also see what I wrote above your message.

    The thing is that the Porsche would be cleaned either way.Can't understand your way of thinking and wanting to buy everything and the most expensive one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consumerism

    no, there's no need to buy something just cos it's the most expensive, but at the same time, you don't want to cheap out and make a purchase that you know down the line you'll be replacing time and time again

    I can see your point there but if the screen protector gets scratched I'll replace it, if the tempered glass gets scratched I'll replace it too.The one is 10 times cheaper and perfect enough for my use.Not cheaping out anywhere.

    He was like [​IMG] :p

    Anyway for now I'm satisfied with the way it looks and it's protection.When I get my diztronic case I'll reconsider the tempered glass thing ;)

    ...actually, I place a lot of value on the reviews and opinions of folks who have made similar purchases - and that tends to sway how and what I eventual end up spending my money on
