    I recently cracked my original one that was on the screen and the replacement unit they sent was quite different from the original, it's better. The glass isn't as thick as it used to be and it covers just a bit more of the screen from edge to edge, but it does leave the speaker and sensors/camera exposed unlike the original protector. Despite having less protection, I feel it's become a better product. Them cutting the thickness of the protector is really noticeable and a huge improvement.

    How did you crack your screen? Is it from the bubble that you mentioned?

    Yes there was a bubble and I guess one day my phone got smacked against something while in my pocket because when I took it out there was a crack.

    They sent a free replacement, but just be careful and just about perfect with installation, avoid bubbles!

    I have the Verizon tempered glass screen and it is now cracked all around above the home button. One small dot the the glass and it has cracked and spreading. I don't remember hitting it on anything or dropping my phone.

    I've always been one to have a screen protector on my phone. It started with a privacy one on my BB, then again on my Droid Incredible. I will never go back to a film protector again after using glass. The touch is absolutely amazing. It's cool to watch them as they take their place on the screen, as it is pretty difficult to get an air bubble stuck in it.

    Sorry to hear about your protector Chris. I've never been a fan of the film protectors, but I'm completely sold on the tempered glass protectors. I went with the Verizon brand for two reasons. One, it's touted as "anti fingerprint" (which really does an amazing job) and two, I can have the local Verizon tech install it so it's done right (without any dust or bubbles). Of course that's just personal preference, but if you decide to go with a different brand do let us know your experience with it.
    Good luck!

    How much was the verizon one? And is there a warranty that comes with it?

    I believe it's 25 bucks. We paid 18 & change after my company discount but I believe you can find alternate brands for around 15 on Amazon. I haven't looked into any type of warranty that's included so I can't help you there.
