PROVEN PROTECTION, saved phone after falling onto busy highway
on June 10, 2018
I have been using these Tech Armor ballistic glass screen protectors on my family's iPhones for the last couple of years. My wife and I currently carry an iPhone 7 plus. We use cases but occasional drops have occurred where these glass screen protectors appear to take the damage, maybe a small chip on the edge of the protector but leaving the phone's screen unscathed. Sometimes a small crack would form after a few months of normal use. I've always felt they worked well enough but never had an incident where I felt they were TRULY tested. That day was today. We were vacationing in Lake Tahoe and had just finished packing up the van to head home. I placed my phone on the roof of the van and got distracted as I was checking our luggage and getting our kids buckled in, instantly forgetting I had placed it there. We drove off, turning onto highway 50 to find a place to eat breakfast. A short 5 minute drive later we parked and started making our way to the restaurant entrance. Upon checking my pockets and not finding my phone a wave of complete and utter grief pulsed through my body... I LEFT MY PHONE ON THE ROOF OF THE VAN! For a split second I thought no problem, we'll just turn around and head back to the parking lot where it would laying in pristine condition. Then my youngest son says he saw something "dark" fall across the outside of his window after we turned onto the highway. At that point I was sure my phone was a goner... laying in the middle of a very busy 2 lane highway where enough time had passed for numerous cars or trucks (big rigs maybe?) to drive directly over it. We get back in the car and head back to the hotel parking lot. As we get close I can see it laying face down in the southbound right lane - not in the middle of the lane, but off to the side in perfect alignment of the tires of each and every passing vehicle. I park and wait for a break in the traffic and grabbed my phone, bracing myself for the utter and complete obliteration of my trusty device. I figured I'd need a new screen at minimum and at worst, a replacement phone. At first glance, all appeared to be lost as the screen looked cracked to kingdom come but the phone was powering on. I looked closer and to my sheer amazement the damage was contained to the ballistic glass screen protector! Back in the safety of our van, I carefully removed the shattered screen protector.... other than two tiny scratches at the very bottom of the screen (the curved part), my phone was perfect. My Apple silicon case suffered a bit of damage, including a lovely tire imprint on the back (which washed off), and some warping at the edges but it too was in surprisingly good shape considering the ordeal. I will ALWAYS use these Tech Armor ballistic glass screen protectors going forward on my phones. I am 100% convinced that had I not had the protector on my phone it would not have survived, or maybe survived but requiring a replacement screen. I attached a photo of what the screen protector looked like afterwards. I highly recommend Tech Armor screen protectors.
