@andybotty @netkid23 @SyrtakiVampir Tempered glass screen protectors are exactly what the name implies, tempered glass. This is contrast to your phone screen which is not tempered glass. Think windshield/windscreen glass on your car. Car windows are tempered glass because it is stronger, absorbs impacts better, and is safer because it breaks into little tiny pieces. However, it is slightly less flexible, which is why your phone screen is not technically tempered, but instead a proprietary recipe of scratch resistant, flexible, glass that is a bit softer and therefore can withstand impacts a little better. Anyways, windshields have a layer of flexible plastic laminated between the glass layers so if you get a crack or hole, the rest of the glass will still hold together. Even an entirely shattered windshield will stay in place due to this plastic layer. Tempered glass screen protectors are similar. The actual surface that you touch is glass, this is what makes them smooth and scratch-resistant. The tempering makes them absorb impact better and keeps them from slicing you up when they get shattered. And they have that thin plastic in between that helps hold everything together when it breaks.
