Do phones need screen protectors?

First, there’s the excitement: A brand new phone! Free of scratches, fingerprints, tiny dents, and the general wear and tear of everyday use. The screen is pristine, unlike your old phone. A fall to the sidewalk put a little crack in the corner that always bothered you. That’s when the uncertainty starts to set in: You want to make sure that doesn’t happen again, but you’re not sure exactly how. You’re probably asking, “Are screen protectors necessary?” Luckily, we have the answers you are searching for. We will discuss the answer to “Is a screen protector necessary?” and explain why you should pick one up. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of screen protectors.

What does a screen protector actually do these days?

You’ve probably been asking yourself “Do I need a screen protector?” ever since you unboxed your new phone. Phone screens have made significant progress in terms of durability in the last few years. Most phones nowadays sport Corning Gorilla Glass, which is highly scratch resistant but is not entirely invincible. Gorilla Glass is also likely to crack from a bad fall. Even something as tiny and innocuous as a few grains of sand in your pocket or bag can leave a permanent mark on your clean phone screen. After all, anything harder than that will rub the screen scratching it, and that might include the minerals that make up sand. Damage from scrapes, dings, and drops are an ever-present threat to our screens. What’s more, many phones have slippery glass or metal backs as well, which can further lead to bad accidents. That’s why, yes, screen protectors are necessary! A screen protector is an excellent, low-profile way to protect your device’s vulnerable screen. It will act as a shield against key scratches and accidental dings, and in many cases, will absorb the shock from an otherwise fatal fall.

Tempered glass: This will feel the closest to your actual phone screen and will offer the best protection against dust and scratches. Our tempered glass sports an easy-to-clean, ultra-smooth oleo phobic coating to prevent fingerprints.

Benefits of having a screen protector

You might still be wondering “Is a screen protector necessary?” Again, we say yes, and here’s why. There are many benefits that come with using a screen protector for your device. We will review each of the benefits below.

Protection from daily wear and tear

A high-quality tempered glass screen protector will put your mind at ease that your (increasingly pricey!) phone is protected from those tiny key scratches, sand grain scrapes, and accidental dings. Whether you keep your phone in your pocket or a bag, it’s likely getting tossed around all day. It is bound to result in wear after a little while –– it’s only natural. Protecting the most vulnerable and important element of your phone (the screen, of course) is the easiest way to add extra defences to your device for a fraction of the price of your phone, too. 

Protection from drops and falls

If daily protection isn’t enough to convince you of the benefits of a screen protector, picture your phone taking a tumble from your hand and onto the sidewalk, or perhaps worse, the tiled floor of the bathroom. At that moment, you probably wish you had sprung the few extra dollars for a quality screen protector. Premium tempered glass screen protectors are designed to sacrifice themselves for your phone. They’ll absorb the shock from an impact, sometimes resulting in a crack. But of course, that’s damage that didn’t go directly to the phone screen. Your phone (and your wallet) will thank you
