Lightbulb Tempered glass screen protectors [INDIA]

Okay, guys, I don't know how it's not mentioned even though we know they are the best screenguards out there.
Here are some I found over eBay :

http://www.ebay.in/sch/ScratchGuard-...tempered+glass


Surely, they are not Spigen's or Orzly's or of some known brand, in fact I confirmed and got a reply that it's made in China and is generic but equally strong and the cuts are nicely made.

Do you think buying it is worth it?
I mean, they're not really expensive at all.
Has anybody bought any of them ?

Btw, when I searched, I found out that Orzly has also made a tempered glass screen protector for our phone but, obviously, it ain't available in India.

Ordered one from ebay. From what I extensively searched, it seems Corning glass is fracture resistant, not necessarily scratch-resistant. There are conflicting views on either sides. I just thought better safe than sorry. Also, I have had a pretty bad expierence with screen-guards. Scratch easily. And the tempered glass is not so costly either, although it is unbranded. Got this one.
In the ebay list, I chose this one cuz its got the maximum sales. Regards to other ones, they either seem confused if its meant for iphone or moto e, or the thickness they mention is inconsistent(0.3/0.26/0.4) or have less sales. I had no other criteria for selection since its unbranded. Hoping for the best.

I already bought a matte one before these came out.
And, it has already started showing scratches. I don't think it's gonna last over a month.
Anyway, do tell us about your experience and if you don't mind, share a few photos too, of how it looks, how much thick it gets, etc.

Got it finally.. Looks good and feels good. After a few attempts got it on properly, although a small portion of upper left screen is not covered. Let's see how long it lasts..

Would it be possible for you to post a few pictures, and maybe answer these questions :

1. Is it actually oleophobic? (prevents oil and fingerprints)
2. Did bubbles come up while putting it on?
3. Has it affected the resolution?
4. Does touch feel the same? Or worsens?

1. Definitely not oleophobic. In fact, seems to be a fingerprint magnet.2. Yes, bubbles did come up, but since one can take it off, I managed to try it on about 3 times. 3. Not affected touch at all, nor the screen quality. 4. I would post a few pics, but it wont show a thing. its not at all visible.
