What is the most new-age solution for protecting smartphone screens?

When we buy a brand-new smartphone or any other electronic device, usually our immediate instinct towards them is to provide utmost care and protection. So much so, that we sometimes refrain from sharing them with anyone, especially during the initial times, lest the other person misplaces or breaks them.

However, as time keeps passing by we stop handling our devices so meticulously. For example, we may carelessly misplace them, bang them up against the wall, and toss them carelessly into our handbags or backpacks. The good news is that a screen protector will safeguard each of your devices from this level of mishandling.

Albeit important, the job of the screen protector isn’t just limited to the screen’s protection, but also to safeguard it from any scratch or damage, because before you even realise it, those annoying scratches seemed to have found their way on your mobile display. There’s no way of keeping track of that, other than the obvious one, which is by being dropped on a hard surface.

Screen protectors have been demonstrated to be very effective; therefore, it is imperative that you get hold of one for the safety of your handset. In this blog post, we’re going to discuss the most up-to-date options for providing effective screen protection. Let’s dig right in.

Screen protectors have several benefits in the modern world.

Even if you’re careful while using your smartphone, you still cannot predict when and how it’ll attract a scratch on its screen. Furthermore, a serious impediment to screen protection is those minuscule sand grains falling in the space between the screen and the phone shell. When you use a protective film, you lower the chances of degrading your phone’s screen, and you won't have to worry about chips or scuffs appearing on it.

Some of the benefits of using screen protectors are:

  • Reducing the number of fingerprints. For instance, fingerprints aren’t easily left behind on matte videos.
  • Stopping fingers from sliding over the frame. It comes in as a big help during typing.
  • No reflection or glare. By using a matte screen protector, glare can be reduced to a minimum.

By the way, did you know that traditional tempered glass is being gradually replaced by nano glass screen protectors? Yep! You read that right..! Now we’re about to explain exactly what a liquid nano screen protector is and why it is preferable to traditional screen protectors.

What exactly does it mean to have a nano glass screen protector?

The screen protector that’s made using liquid glass is known as liquid screen protection. Since they use nanotechnology they’re also called a nano glass screen protector.

Silicone dioxide is the fundamental component of every liquid screen protector on the market today. Since the oleophobic coating and anti-bacterial properties of SiO2 are automatically given by the liquid screen protector as it dries, these benefits are included as a standard feature.

Then, why choose a liquid protector?

A substance known as liquid glass is a see-through material that can be rubbed onto electronic devices like smartphones and tablets. It's a nano-liquid that, as it dries, changes the chemical composition of whatever's on the screen. The process of applying it will cause the glass on your screen to cure, which will make it more resistant to cracks and fractures. At first glance, the glass screen on your device might appear to have a smooth surface, but closer inspection with a microscope reveals that there are actually a number of holes and openings in it. 

The glass on your smartphone will eventually become rough on a microscopic level as time passes. The coating, of other protective layers, on a modern smartphone, will wear away over time as the device is used. Most of the coatings only have a shelf life of a few months at most. The use of your mobile device will cause rough patches to appear on its screen. Liquid glass eliminates these imperfections. Since it’s only 100 nanometers thick, adding it won't make much of a difference in the total thickness of your unit.

Under a microscope, your screen's surface will appear to be riddled with minuscule pores, each of which can eventually cause the screen to crack. When you apply a liquid screen protector to your device's display, the liquid fills in the pores and heals the screen, making it more robust and resistant to damage from drops and shocks.

Several Benefits That Come With Using Liquid Screen Protectors

  • A liquid screen protector is developed using nanotechnology.
  • Impact- and shatter-resistant 9H scratch-resistant coating approved.
  • Undetectable by the human eye.
  • Completely devoid of bubbles
  • High-definition clarity.
  • Extremely easy to put to use.

Downsides of old screen protectors or scratch guards

  • The matte-finish glass finish has a higher chance of getting worn out than the shinier one, and therefore, asks for regular maintenance.
  • Modern-day touchscreens come with an oleophobic coating. When you place a screen protector, that coating might get well-shielded, but, on the very contrary, it might deplete (or even disappear completely) once you take the screen protector off.
  • Similarly, the look and feel of certain devices might change depending on the thickness of the applied screen protector.
  • The screen protectors might fracture after one or two blows or impacts.

Are nano glass screen protectors superior to other screen protectors?

The next big question that runs through our mind is whether or not the nano glass screen protector is right for mobile devices, as opposed to tempered glass. It’s important to keep in mind that even the highest-quality tempered glass won't be able to save your devices (mobiles, laptops, etc.) if the glass breaks along the edges. Since tempered glass is so easily broken, even if only one of its edges is damaged - whether by a chip or a crack - the entire panel can shatter in a matter of seconds.

On the other hand, since nano glass screen protectors cover the device screen completely, from edge to edge, they are the best solution when it comes to mobile screen protection. Tempered glass protectors cannot cover the edges of a smartphone with curvy edges or bent edges (for example, One Plus 10 Pro 5G). However, a nano glass screen protector can easily solve the problem.
