The screen of a cell phone is the most vulnerable part of the phone. The rest of the body is sturdier and less prone to scratches, dust and damage. In the case of an accidental fall, the screen always stands a bigger chance to be damaged as compared to the other parts of the phone. With good-quality smartphones coming at a high price, it is imperative to try to protect the screen from damage. Not only does it make your phone last longer, but it also protects the value of the phone. Plastic screen guards look cheap on the phone and also do not feel good to touch as compared to glass screen protectors.
Here are a few benefits of using a glass screen protector:
Glass screen protectors feel smooth to touch exactly like the phone screen. This keeps the experience of using a touch-screen phone intact since the protector feels like the screen to the fingers.
Tempered glass screen protectors are safe to use as compared to other screen protectors. Tempering compresses the outer surface of the glass that puts tension on the inner surfaces. This makes the tempered glass crumble when hit, instead of splintering.
Glass screen protectors are thicker than plastic screen protectors. The average thickness of a glass screen protector is around 0.3 to 0.5 mm while the thickness of a normal screen guard is 0.1 mm. Glass screen protectors are more capable of protecting the screen in case of an accident as compared to the plastic ones.
Glass screen protectors are easy to install. You can get the job done at a mobile store close to you for low cost or you can do it at home by following the simple instructions mentioned on the kit.
Tempered glass screen protectors are more durable than screen guards. You can keep it along with your keys or coins without worrying about major scratching. Even with severe falls, the glass will shatter into small pieces keeping the screen intact.
Glass screen protectors come with an oleophobic coating in most cases, making them resistant to fingerprints. They are easy to clean with a micro-fiber cloth or handkerchief.
