As I wasn’t really happy with the back protector of our little Edge I decided to continue my search of a little bit more suitable thing. This time probably made of simple thin plastic. And I come upon this one.
Seller: bestoffer4yu (Ratio 99,4% TS)
Price: US $2.18
Item location: China
Order date: Sep 02, 2015
Estimated: Sep 18, 2015 – Oct 13, 2015
Tracking: seller provided item number
Quantity: 1 pack including 1 front and 1 back protectors
Note: As the screen protector is still quite good we decided to keep it on for more time, so at the time of writing experience will include only the back cover.
Item: This looked as promising as the glass from the first glare, but we all know how that ended up.. So we weren’t expecting much out of it. I was happy enough that I actually got each of the kind (back and front). Once I got 4 front covers, and even not full ones, which cover the edges, instead of 2 of the kind – total waste. But i’m getting distracted here. So even though we didn’t expect much protector actually fit quite decently.
It has a small gap in the bottom and edges still don’t stick as its curved (and we tried to heat it up with hair dryer a bit to make it softer and bend, but that didn’t help) but jet as its way thinner it still feels a lot better than a glass. (And actually a glass broke a minute we took it of, as it accidentally slammed on the floor.. It had it coming I guess). So yay for now.. I will edit this when the front cover will be used as well.
Ebay vs. Reality
Ebay gets +1 for fitting better than the glass. +1 for arriving on time. +1 for including parts as ordered. Reality gets +1 for not sticking properly and +1 for the front as I guess it will not stick on edges as it should.. but that might change.
