Protect Note 2 / iPhone 6S screen from cracking due to fall / shock

I recently dropped my Note 2 onto a hard concrete surface from about 1 meter
& the screen cracked to tiny pieces despite that there is a screen protector (which
protects against dirt/finger prints).

A local dealer here told me pasting a 'tempered glass' will protect the screen
but he did not have the size for Note 2.

Does the above really help protect the screen or it's just snake oil?

Compared to tempered glass, which is better?

I've heard that casings that auto-close (when there's no human hand to
hold it open) will help as well but I don't like it as I have a belt pouch to
hold my Note 2 (& maybe iPhone 6S in future) so with such a casing,
it won't fit into the pouch anymore.  I don't like to keep my phones in
my pocket esp when I'm in a car as difficult to take it out: belt pouch
is still preferred, so either tempered glass or the above shock protector
layer is ideal, so now I need to know which one works better

I have a silicon case on my smartphone. I've dropped it heaps and never had it break. I think the silicon absorbs the shock.

Care to take a photo of your silicon casing & attach it here?  Thanks

Thanks, that should fit into my belt pouch then.

Last question:
I've read that tempered glass is easier to install & with less bubbles trapped
compared to those thin plastic layer of screen protector.  

What are the pros & cons between the two, putting aside the pricings?

Sorry, I've got no experience with tempered glass protectors. Best to post as a separate question.
