Default [Q] using front glass replacement as screen protector?

Hello,
I was thinking about using replacement such as

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Samsung-Ga...item233b38b2ae

instead of tempered glass screen protector. Would that work? Would that adhere to screen?

Thanks for ideas

i think it would make the screen twice as thick and it wouldn't adhere to the screen, you'd be better off getting either a tempered glass or matte screen protector

with tempered glass it is still twice as thick... only issue is about the cutouts and adhesion...

Yeah just go with the tempered glass protector. There is no purpose to buying another screen and adding it on top of another one. Your screen sensitivity might drop as well if you were to do that.

I bought an iloome screenmate tempered glass protector back in January I believe and it's still holding up awesomely. Still fully adhered. No scratches. Fits perfectly.

screen sensitivity will drop with another glass the same as with tempered glass that's the point. I need to switch my tempered glasss, it is already microscratched.
