With the popularity of touchscreen devices, many third-party companies are supplying various different forms of cases, protectors and sleeves for the most vulnerable part of the devices – the display and the screen. And even though most of these companies are investing in toughened glass protectors, special coatings, there is one company that has taken a completely different route of protecting your screen – Zagg. Instead of making plastic screen protectors, their protectors are made of a very thin layer of glass.
One side of the protector features the adhesive, while the other one features an oil-resistant coating. Zagg protectors are made of materials that are incredibly similar to the phone’s screen. Basically, you’ll be covering your glass screen with an extra layer of glass screen that will protect and “absorb” dents, scratches, and dings. Furthermore, these screen protectors are given strength against impact damage, without compromising rigidity or preventing flex – something that all smartphone screens have to compromise on.
That being said, Zagg screen protectors have a natural edge over the smartphone’s screen strength. However, they also don’t add a lot of thickness to the phone, and while you can feel the ridge at the edge of the protector, the edges are beveled so that they aren’t sharp. This is especially important for newer smartphones that feature curved edges as these screen protectors don’t reach out to the edge of the handset, but instead, they cover the flat area of the glass.
This approach is called “case friendly” so that any case that reaches around the phone doesn’t rub against the screen protector itself. However, this makes the application process of the screen protector incredibly important. Once placed, they come with a lifetime guarantee and the company will replace any damaged screen protector, granted that it’s been damaged during general use.
With that said, these protective pieces also give you peace of mind and prevent the need for expensive repairs. Basically, the warranty that comes with them gives you an extra layer of mental protection. When you look at the price tag of these screen protectors, you’ll wonder why it’s much higher than the price of the other conventional ones. The reason is – these screen protectors are made of glass, and they come with a lifetime guarantee.
Finding a screen protector with a lifetime guarantee isn’t very common, which just shows the amount of confidence this manufacturer has in their product, which should inspire confidence in you as well. It’s an affordable investment that you can put your trust in and prolong the lifespan of your smartphone.
