Dropping your device face down can be one of the worst feelings in the world. Knowing how expensive the repairs are, you find yourself dreading to pick it up and praying that your screen is okay. So, what if I told you there’s a cheap, effective and long-lasting solution?
Glass screen protectors
My youngest of three children has just started at school, where the latest iPads are now a compulsory requirement. All the kids get so much out of the devices; they are great as both learning tools and for keeping the kids entertained while I’m on the go.
However, knowing how the kids can sometimes throw their toys around, I was initially concerned with the longevity of the devices. I was scared I would be spending a fortune on screen repairs, and I found that my fear for my devices safety was always in the back of my mind. That was until I found glass screen protectors!
Glass screen protectors have been game changers. We invested for all of our devices, and haven’t cracked a screen or damaged a device since! They are easy to apply, don’t break the bank, they last, and they work! Knowing that you have good protection at a great price will put your mind at ease when investing in expensive technology.
Tempered glass is almost always sturdier than plastic at the same price. Plastic protectors - especially the cheap models - also get scratched easily, unlike glass ones. Glass protectors are generally around 0.3-0.5 mm in thickness; plastic is around 0.1mm.
No matter what you buy, you have to be careful about one thing: Buy a protector made for your device. "It looks the same" or "it kind of fits" are traps, and you'll regret it. Those protectors will come loose eventually, or fit in a way where using them isn't comfortable.
Glass screen protectors are a must.
