Screen protectors are of two major types, which include the Tempered Glass vs Liquid Glass Protector. Both offer the same and, at the same time, different functions. Therefore, which should I go for? Which should be better for me? How can I make the right choice for my device?
The rise in the use of smartphones in this era most, especially with the ownership of touch screen phones of different sizes, safeguarding the screen of a smartphone with a screen protector is of paramount importance and cannot be overemphasized. Screen protectors protect/guard phones against cracks, scratch, and breaks, thereby increasing the longevity of the phone’s screen.
In response to the above questions, it depends on the perceived needs of the individual. What do I mean? Ideally, the primary function of a screen protector is to protect the screen of a phone from cracks and breaks. Other secondary function includes scratch, keeping the phone’s screen clean and in pristine condition.
So, What do you need from a Screen Protector?
Kindly sit back, relax as we present to you the advantages, disadvantages as well as perceived needs for the right choice of a screen protector.
Tempered Glass vs Liquid Glass
Firstly, let’s talk about the tempered screen protector.
A genuine Tempered screen protector no doubt protects your phone from an accidental collision, drops from a particular height (of course not from a two-story (story) building to a tiled floor) as compared with the Liquid glass protector.
So, if you want to go for a screen protector in terms of strength and ability to absorb and withstand a certain amount of shock, then I recommend the Tempered screen protector.
Note also that the Tempered screen also has some resistance to scratch but not as compared to that of the Liquid glass protector.
Tempered screen protector does get old and blurry over time; as a result, trying to remove it for a replacement tends to be a minor challenge as you can damage your screen in the process.
Finally, everyone has a choice as one man’s meat may be another man’s poison. This goes to say that as thin as the Tempered screen protector is, there are still some people who claim that the Tempered screen protector makes the object displayed on the device a bit far or does not give an immediate response when touched.
Others say the installation of the Tempered glass protector adds a bit of height that they are not so comfortable with.
Getting a screen protector doesn’t in any way make the items displayed on your screen a bit far,
offers a 101% response to touch (I feel it’s about 98% responsive to touch though), it also doesn’t offer any increase in height to the phone’s screen to make you feel comfortable if somehow you are still not comfortable you can opt for the second option.
In conclusion, the Tempered screen protector is a great choice to protect one’s phone screen against crack, drop, and accidental collision, a medium choice as against scratch and durability over time, and least of choice for people who want to feel their phone with no increase in height whatsoever.
Now let’s look at the liquid glass protector.
Undoubtedly technology is improving, and Nanotechnology is on the rise. The Liquid glass protector is an ideal choice for people who want to get a good feel of their phones, who wants the contents displayed on their phone screen just the way it is with no increase in the height of screen whatsoever, it is for people who don’t want to see any bit of scratch and cracks until they are ready to get a new phone (my perception though).
It is said that the Liquid screen protector is permanent once applied to the phone, well that’s wrong. The makers of the liquid screen protector talk about 25 years of functionality BUT boast of 9 months to 2 years effectiveness as a result of wear and tear from wind (this amazed me though), water, temperature, and continuous touch as well as some other factors.
It is also said by some people that the color of the Liquid glass protector changes over time as it reacts with the sun, and other substances. Well, for this, there is no experimental fact that proves this, only claims.
Nonetheless, it would amaze you that the Liquid screen protector is resistant not only to scratch (to a great extent) but also to oil and water, meaning you can wipe water and oil with ease, leaving no stain when compared with the tempered glass screen.
So with all these in mind, if you’re out to get a screen protector that makes you feel your phone just the way it is and with a higher resistant to scratch (and cracks) as compared to the tempered glass screen protector, the liquid glass protector is an ideal and better option for you.
But least of an option, when it comes to resistance against shock, drops, and annoying cracks when the device falls to the ground from a certain heigh.
Though as mentioned earlier, Nanotechnology is on the rise, so in about 5 years from now, the liquid glass protector might take the lead in all areas; only if the makers of the tempered glass protector are asleep.
This is a battle of performance, which includes strength, longevity, durability, and comfortability. I guess you can make a choice with the aforementioned information given above. Share your thoughts and comments.
