Devices like tablets, smartphones and smartwatches are all a fairly hefty financial investment, and therefore something most people really want to keep in great condition for as long as possible. Unfortunately even with careful use items like this with screens are vulnerable to scratches, knocks, and scuffs which either spoil the overall look or interfere with using the device properly.
Keys and other items in bags with loose, unprotected devices are common culprits when it comes to scratched screens, and even a gentle knock could crack the screen if it is not protected. Replacing a smartphone screen can easily cost a few hundred pounds; never mind what it would be for a replacement tablet screen. Who need that kind of expense?
To try to avoid this it is sensible to invest in some kind of screen protection, as even if you have insurance for your watch, phone or tablet making a claim for damages could well push your premium up when you renew the policy. Insurance is great for serious damage or if your device is stolen, but with a decent form of screen protection you should be able to avoid many of the typical problems unprotected devices can suffer.
The big question is – what type of screen protection is the best? Here we look briefly at both the traditional tempered glass type, and the innovative new product on the scene - Liquipel Liquid Glass Screen Protector; investigating several aspects of each to present the information you need to make a good choice.
Traditional tempered glass screen protectors
Many of us are familiar with tempered glass through its use in things like shower doors or car windows, so how does it fare when used as a screen protector for your precious smartphone, tablet or similar device?
The good points
- It’s strong.
- It’s safe. If broken it doesn’t shatter but crumbles.
- It’s scratch resistant.
- It doesn’t interfere with reading the screen on your device.
- It works fine with touchscreens.
- Although generally strong if the edges of the tempered glass get damaged, say by a hard knock or if the device is dropped then the rest of the protective screen is a sitting time bomb – the physics of its make up mean it could eventually (and with no warning), shatter. This is especially common in older or unregulated products, so be wary of unknown brands.
- Tempered glass protector screen are a lot more expensive than another type.
- They are generally bought to fit a particular device, so there’s no flexibility between brands and types of devices.
