that's not how it works, the glass will shatter BUT the film will prevent it from falling off and it might still work even if it's cracked w/o cutting your fingers.

Hi...  Just to correct, xperia u doesnt have a shatter proof sheet on glass unlike Xperia P & S..

It only has antireflection coating on glass.... also it is more likely to get scratch & fingermarks, so it is highly recomended to use Screen guard...

Re: cover of phone started to wear from edges....

Not at all, you can not compare Gorilla glass to that film at all

Gorilla Glass won't get scratched as easy as this shatter proof film, Gorilla Glass is harder to break, so no you can't compare them, you can add a Zagg invisible Shield which is better than the shatter proof film.

Remember that the Xperia U is a low end phone or low mid end phone, but what doesn't make sense is that the high end phones lack Gorilla Glass or Dragon trail glass

Re: cover of phone started to wear from edges....

Atleast Sony does think that the screens of their premium handsets like xperia p or s are equivalent to gorilla glass, which is not..

May be difficult but not impossible as the same price range handsets like Omnia W & Nokia C7 have Gorilla glass..

They should really tie up with Corning & get Gorilla glass atleast for their premium handsets...
