What Types of Screen Protectors are Best for Your Phone?

We all know how easy it is to scratch the screen on even the most up-to-date smartphone. It could be as simple as placing it face down on a rough surface by accident. 

In this article, we look at the different types of screen protectors available and hope we can help you find the right one for your phone.

The Different Types of Screen Protectors

There are two different factors that determine the differences in screen protectors. These are the material the protectors are made from and their intended purpose. Let’s have a look at the four basic materials!

Tempered Glass

This is one of the most popular types of screen protectors on the market. Using tempered glass means you get the highest level of protection against scratches or cracked screens, and it also tends to be the easiest to install on the phone, as well as being the most durable. Tempered glass will measure from .1mm up to 0.5mm in thickness, which means the screen protector will stand slightly off of the screen, but you will hardly notice it is there.

Military Grade PET Plastic

Another popular type of material for screen protectors is military grade PET plastic. The level of protection provided by a PET plastic protector is not as great as that provided by tempered glass. However, PET is generally much thinner and does not protrude as much from the screen. Additionally, the PET plastic screen are generally not as expensive as a glass version.

TPU Plastic

Made from flexible plastic, this is for basic scratch protection only. Perhaps think of TPU plastic as something to carry with you as an emergency protector, in the event that your usual one should become loose or broken. It is also very cheap, and difficult to apply without getting air bubbles underneath.

Screen Protectors With Added Benefits

In addition to the materials listed above, there are some further factors to consider when choosing a screen protector. For example, while you want your screen protector primarily to stop your phone screen from becoming scratched or cracked there are some that also offer additional benefits:

Privacy Screen Protector

If you use your phone for business, you may be displaying sensitive information when browsing, for example. This is where a privacy screen protector is a useful choice. By way of clever technology, this type of protector means you have to be looking directly at the screen to read it. So anyone standing on either side, for example, can’t see what you are looking at.

Anti-Glare Screen Protector

Great for those who use their phone outside in bright sunlight, these screen protectors are coated with the same sort of coating that is often applied to glasses, and prevents glare from the suns rays. They can also prevent fingerprints and smudges.
