these are probably generic unbranded tempered glass protector. I bought a similar one from China during my most recent trip. Works just as intended and it's cheaper than branded ones.

If you ever decide to stop using it, you can just use your fingernail and lift it like any other normal film screen protector.

I'm also looking into these.I never had a glass protector but I feel $30-40 is a bit too much for my blood. maybe I should try these. and If I like the feel, later on invest on a better quality one.

How about this? IMO $16 is not bad for such highly rated product.

Oops, It didn't let me post the link.

Search for "Anker Nexus 5 Tempered Glass" in Amazon.
