First S6 edge tempered glass screen protector gets hammered on video

First S6 edge tempered glass screen protector gets hammered on video
Given the $600+ price of today's flagships, a quality screen protector is one of the best investments you can make to keep the resale value of your precious. Tempered glass screen protectors are the best, of course, as they mimic the original touch feeling, and shatter when the phone is dropped, protecting the actual screen underneath.

Until now, the Galaxy S6 edge has been devoid of the tempered glass protection option, for the simple reason that it has unique thermoformed dual-edged display that slopes to the sides, so only the more orthodox plastic protectors have been available for it. There are no barriers for ingenuity, though, and what you can see below is arguably the first glass shield for the S6 edge. 

Aptly named the Olixar Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Tempered Glass Curved Screen Protector, this thing tacks onto the whole front of the phone, including the sloping screen edges. As you can see in the video below, it shatters under pressure like a typical glass protector, eventually preventing damage to the very expensive to replace S6 edge panel underneath. This Olixar panel is still a preproduction version, but should enter the sales portfolio pretty soon.

Nice. A tempered screen protector has saved my Xperia z3 loads of times. I've gone through about 3 so far ( I work in construction). I was looking at getting the s6 edge but the lack of a tempered screen protector stopped me. Until now that is..

My iPhone 5 has been saved by tempered glass dozens of times. More effective than regular screen protectors

@BobbyBoster He really needs a few lessons in English because that jibberish he's spouting makes him sound like a retarded goldfish..

Unless you work in construction why the f**k you need tempered glass and why the f**k you people keep dropping your phones? I have been using the super slippery iphone 6 for 8 months alongside my trusty moto and I have never ever dropped it. I mean what you do with your phones? Use them as frisbees?

People have different ways on how they use their phone, grip their phone, call from their phone. You deserve a star for your care though. +1

Things happen. I am sure no one sets out to drop their phone. Accidents happen.

So, glass breaks when it gets hit. You learn something new every day.

a tempered glass screen protector is neccessory for most of people. we drop the phone many times in dailylife. the phone screen is easy to be broken if without any protection and cost is much expensive to change a phone screen. more info, pls check: weaccessory.com Shenzhen Western Electronic Co., Ltd

dropped my iphone6s plus one time before, thanks to the fomax tempered glass, the glass is cracked, the mobile screen is saved. sometimes, a small glass could save a lot of money.
