Protective glass covering for cell phone

Verizon store is trying to sell us a $50 liquid protective covering for our new Smart phone. Says it takes about 10 minutes to apply then let set for 24 hours.
Is this something that can really protect the glass face against breakage in case of dropping or such? Or is it just a scam to get more money from the customer?

never heard of this so can't comment directly but a google search found reviews as well as other retailers that sell what appears to be the same thing for a lot less.

Find out who the manufacturer is then go to Amazon or other sites and read customer reviews. Also Google product reviews. I did that for my new Samsung S 8 and DWs Note 8 and found several screens that were rated very high by the reviewing outfits were rated very low by users. The problem with the new Samsung phones is the curved screen. We settled on the Samsung S View Flip Cover (Amazon) for our phones and like them very much.

Protective glass covering for cell phone

Glass covers can now be purchased at Walmart for less than $10. They work the same way. If you drop your phone the cover is more likely to break than the screen. Read the reviews online and give it a try.
My wife and I both have them on our iPhone 6s's

I have a glass cover. It helps but $50? Someone is trying to make some extra $ at your expense.

It's not snake oil. Liquid screen protectors (called liquid nano technology) are legit options for protecting screens. That being said any accessory sold by Verizon is going to be overpriced. But the technology is legit.

I've used Zagg InvisiShield for years. Saved our screens many times. Zagg would crack but screen stayed protected. Zagg sends free replacement. My wife just picked up a new Google Pixel. Verizon rep said they had the liquid or the Zagg. I chose Zagg due to multiple times of working as advertised. Heck I even put one on my Motorola Force Z and it has a shatterproof screen. I do not like the new curved screens but if I had one would definitely install the liquid. Flat screens definitely Zagg.
