    Just my luck - I went to put my phone into my side pants pocket, near the knee, when it leaped out of my hand and went for the ground. Unfortunately I was standing on a tile floor, and the phone landed badly. I had the (useless for front impact protection) OPO clear case on it at the time, because the Diztronic case I ordered last week hasn't made its way to Canada yet. It should arrive tomorrow, one day too late. Irony much? Luckily I cant feel the hairline crack through it, so it isn't affecting the functionality.

    So I'll be needing a new tempered glass protector - whats the best way to remove this broken one when it arrives? Anyone know how to remove it without hurting the phone underneath?

    I would put tape over the crack in the protector to keep it from shattering anymore and then use duck tape towards the top or bottom to remove from the device...

    The glass did its job. Be thankful you aren't one of the many forums members who have broken screens and a $200 repair quote.

    Damn, do you have another one to replace it with? My case won't be arriving until September probably and the phone sometime this week so I'm gonna be super careful until I get adequate protection for it.

    Ordered another Nillkin, which should take another 11 days to arrive. I couldn't find any distributors in Canada or the states for it (at least at near the same $9 shipped price).
    Thanks - the guitar pick is a good way to get under the glass. I hadn't thought of that.
    Yes, the Nillkin 9H tempered glass.
    Yeah totally, much better to break a $9 protector than the glass below. I'll be much happier when the Diztronic case arrives to give this klutzsy owner some peace of mind.

    Could you please let me know what camera you used to take those pictures of your OPO? The quality is outstanding!

    Had to replace my spartan tempered glass yesterday, just peal it off carefully, the adhesive side has a thin film of plastic or something that keeps all the shards together

    It's easy to remove, I had to do the same to my casebase screen protector when I dropped my OPO onto my kitchen flooring, it cracked, leaving the screen in perfect condition.

    I left it on until I got a few more replacements from China and when they came, I just simply put my finger nail under the corner of the screen protector and lifted upwards, it just peels off with no issues.

    I use a cruzerlite bugdroid tpu case along with a nillkin crystal film based protector. What'll be my fate if god forbid, I drop my phone?
