For those who love their iPhones, which most owners of this device do! Ensuring its safety holds paramount importance. Protecting it with a screen guard/protector is quintessential for the long life and effective use of your iPhone. Plastic screen protectors are a great way to safeguard your phone from sticky fingertips, scratches, chips and the like. However, when it comes to safeguarding the iPhone screen against cracks and breakage, the regular plastic covering simply wouldn’t make the cut. You need a much tougher guardian – one that can protect your device’s screen against all kinds of physical damage, impacts and cracks. This protector is ‘Tempered Glass’. Let’s explore why these glass screen protectors are recommended over plastics for safeguarding your iPhone screen.

About Tempered Glass Screens Protectors
As the name indicates, this screen protector saves your iPhone screen from every day wear and tear, making it look fresh and clean all the time. Tempered glass protects the touch screen from direct external damage and scratches. It is five times stronger than regular plastic screen guards. They are heat-resistant and will absorb maximum impact in case you drop your iPhone to the ground, thereby protecting the screen from damage.

Tempered Glass vs Plastic Screen Guards

#Toughness & Impermeability
Tempered glass screen protectors are sturdier than their plastic counterparts. You will find that plastic screen protectors (especially the cheaper varieties) are highly vulnerable to getting cloudy and scratched unlike tempered glass that can be retained for a longer time. Usually the thickness of tempered glass for an iPhone is around 0.3-0.5 mm while the plastic screen protectors are around 0.1mm – the former being a tougher, more impermeable option for your phone.

#Touch & feel
The best quality tempered glass will allow your fingers to slide conveniently on the screen, giving you the feel of the original touch screen. On the other hand, plastic screen guards are slightly rough to begin with, and the friction continues to increase as the covering goes through regular usage and rough handling. Cloudy patches on plastic guards are a common occurrence, especially in places where the screen is most frequently touched.

#Installation process
People who have already experienced the plastic screen protector can relate to this point – they will know how cumbersome it is to install and maintain. Removing air bubbles is just too exhausting! Alternatively, glass screen protectors come in full-adhesive or bezel-adhesive varieties and are pretty convenient to install. DIY too, works great with tempered glass screen protectors.

#Product Pricing
Depending on the quality and variant of iPhone (5,5s, 4s, 6 etc.) that you own, you can pay somewhere around $2 (for the lowest quality) till $35 (the top class variety) for tempered glass screen protectors, whereas the plastic screen protectors are available at a price range between $1 to $10. This higher price of the iPhone tempered glass is because of the quality material and technologies used in manufacture like Oleo phobic coating (to reduce fingerprints).

Hope this article convinces you that tempered glass is a better protector for your iPhone’s screen as compared to plastic coverings.
