Does a screen protector protect the screen?

There have been a lot of arguments around this topic.

As a phone repair technician, I’d like to say some facts about the protector and screen. I have replaced thousands of phone screens and applied as many protectors. If my memory is correct, only few customers complainted that the protector didn’t protect their phone screens from cracking. More customers felt lucky that he/she put a screen protector on it. A protector is as hard as the screen. If a heavy drop can crack a protector, it can crack the screen as well. 

There does exist the phenomenon that the protector is intact but the screen under it is cracked. But this doesn’t often happen. For most of the cases, the protector cracks to protector the screen.
