    So, when i bought my OnePlus, I also bought a tempered glass with it. The Nilkin 9H Tempered Glass. But today i noticed a crack in the screen. I have not actually dropped the phone or bumped it into anything very hard. But i just wanted to share my experience about the Niklin 9H, so you can decide if you should buy it or not.
    I've taken some pictures of it, but i'm not sure if you can see it. But i can tell you that, when the screen is on, you can see the crack go through the 8Crap, Messenger and the SoundCloud app. Here's a lnk to the pictures

    Also, the first picture is not very sharp, but if you look, you can see that the crack goes through the weather symbol.

    EDIT: I said the Nilkin 9H, but i just remembered that it was the Ultimate Shield i bought instead. I am sorry about the wrong information. My mistake

    Remember that sometimes you don't notice but you hit somewhere.
    Same like when you find a cut on your finger and don't remember when and how happened

    Well, i might have, but if it was something major, i think i would have noticed it. Things like cutting your finger isn't very major.
    I don't really know if i just can peel this one of, or if it will just shatter, and scatter all over the place. But at some point, i will buy a new protector, and a new case

    Tempered glass looks nice but to be honest, I'm not sure how reliable it is. I have the Rhino shield and it works great, and looks great. It was worth the 25 bucks. I haven't scratched my screen or cracked it. I don't think the rhino shield is tempered glass though

    I still had the minor crack on 15€ Casebase and received the Chinese ones and they feel similar to the eye and leave the same fingerprint stains so I made the reasonable choice

    I guess so :p, did you have a chance to use the nillkin if so, Is the thickness difference noticeable compared to the orzly? the 3mm sounds thin but when you slide your finger through the cutout, it feels really deep.

    I thin you will notice the difference just because of not rounded edges.
    I often hold in my hands mechanical parts that have difference in thickness of 0.1 - 0.3 mm. If you don't put side by side you will never feel the difference
