Almost all flagship devices are made of glass on both side now a days.
And to be honest with you whatever reviewers or company may claim, one bad drop will definitely crack the glass.
Get a good case, a good screen protector and try not to through the mobile around, it will definitely last longer than usual ;) ;)

Or the back of the phone.

there is none that is crack proof. That's why you get 2 in the pack. When it cracks, you replace it with the next one in the pack. With a tempered glass and a case (like the 1 you picked in the link) your phone should survive 99% of falls & knocks with no problem. There just is no such thing as unbreakable glass when they are less than 1mm thin.
I have already changed 1 tempered class and I don't even have my HTC U Ultra 1 year yet. But if I didn't have it on, the fall that cracked the tempered glass was definitely cracking my display, as it fell on rough concrete. I'm extremely rough on my devices and I don't change phones every year but I do go though 2 to 3 tempered glass in the time a phone is my daily driver. So $14 in tempered glass over 3-4 years is a good investment in my opinion. My phone before the U Ultra was the HTC ONE MAX BTW.
Anth0ny, 15 Oct 2017Well now you know a next way that you can use and it doesn't require a PC OR USB cable.Anthony ive a question Do you have an idea when HTC will giving.update on Oreo this U11?
And with any screen protector I buy online will take it to a cellphone shop to attach it on my phone screen.

Even the spigen it says also gives same 9h protection as normal tempered glass.
Do you know any that say against cracks? Which you use on your HTC U11 screen ?

Hello! Those who've had this phone for a while now, have you experienced any lag so far? I'm looking for an upgrade that can last me for a good while. Also, how delicate is this thing? So much glass is a bit daunting for a not so coordinated person like me.
Hardcor, 16 Oct 2017Found this too that has best reviews for HTC U11 Screen protector:
https://www.amazon.com/Pro... morefollow up to my post below.
if you read the description of both the nano liquid & the tempered glass,
they are both called screen protectors.
but you need to ask your self "protection from what?"
then when you read on, you will see they say scratches and fingerprints
No where is it written that it protects against breakage. so the lifetime replacement warranty is not going to cover brokerage a.k.a cracks. but the tempered glass has a bit of an advantage over the nano liquid as it has a thickness to absorb some impact where the liquid absorbs nothing.
Hardcor, 16 Oct 2017Found this too that has best reviews for HTC U11 Screen protector:
https://www.amazon.com/Pro... moreThe short answer is NO.
let me explain.....
your phone digitizer glass is gorilla glass 5. it has a hardness of a level 6
that means anything with a level 6 or harder can scratch it. the metal for keys are softer than a level 6 but sand is a level 6. so guess what dirty keys can do or a dirty table or floor.
so the nano liquid makes it that sand/grime don't stick to the glass and cause scratching when it moves around.
the tempered glass protector stops scratching to your digitizer glass by covering it with a hardened thin layer of glass that is less than 1mm thick.
neither the nano liquid or the less than 1mm thick tempered glass can stand up to a point load impact (which is what happens in a fall or lash on an uneven surface.)
gorilla glass as a material is tough, unfortunately, what is being used on your screen is not 12mm thick as shop front glass. it is less than 1mm thick and adding a nano liquid to it does not change the glass to steel. so a point load on a hardened thin glass is going to break it.
putting a tempered glass on the phone give the point load something other than your glass digitizer to hit. the tempered glass you put on phones are hard and will disperse the force from 1 point to over the entire front of the phone preventing damage to the digitizer glass below it. but just like the gorilla glass digitizer it is less than 1mm thin and can also break if the point load is high enough.
you may think to your self "what is the point of putting on the tempered glass if it can still break?"
and the short answer is... is easier and cheaper to replace a broken tempered glass than it is to replace a broken gorilla glass digitizer.
when the nano liquid false in a fall or lash, it's the gorilla glass of your phone that is going to break.

Aren't both for glass protection from cracking too?
Going to surely by this case too: https://www.amazon.com/Spigen-Crystal-Protection-Premium-Clarity/dp/B0728937FV
There's crazy cheap offer(compared to original price) for spigen screen protector if you buy them together.
Hardcor, 15 Oct 2017Guys, did anyone tried this?
https://www.spigen.com/collections/htc/products/screen-protect... morethat is not better than a tempered glass
The liquid adds a little more oil and scratch resistance which is fine for normal use but what about when you drop your phone? Oil & scratch resistants don't stop the glass from cracking. And that is what you need most with this phone (crack resistance).
It's not going to matter if it is skin oil free if the glass is cracked.
Guys, did anyone tried this?
Seems professional and different better than normal screen protectors but how easy to apply it?

Hardcor, 14 Oct 2017Thanks for your opinion. Already copied it using usb to pc as said will try in past post..
BTW. forget using USB cables when you want to send or receive files from your PC.
Give Xender a try.
Once your PC & phone on the same network. you are good to go.
