Choosing the Perfect iPhone Screen Protector

iphone screen protector

Finding the ideal fit for your iPhone can be a daunting task. The market bombards us with options, each claiming to be the best. As seasoned experts in the field, we cut through the confusion to present an in-depth exploration of screen protectors, debunking myths, and providing you with a clear roadmap for your purchase.

Understanding Screen Protector Materials for iPhone

Tempered Glass: The Powerhouse


  • Strong impact resistance

  • Robust scratch resistance

  • Easy application

  • High screen clarity


  • High screen glare

  • Difficult removal

  • Inflexible, prone to cracking

  • Varies in thickness

  • FIngerprint visibility

Best use cases: Overall protector for iPhone screen. Tempered glass, treated for durability, is a stalwart defender against scratches and impacts. However, be mindful of its thickness, as it may affect touchscreen functionality and device aesthetics.

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate): The Versatile Contender


  • Easy application and removal

  • Good scratch resistance

  • Anti-glare functionality

  • Flexible and thin


  • Lacks impact protection

  • Some loss in screen clarity

Best use cases: Ideal for anti-glare, anti-fingerprint, and anti-scratch needs. PET screen protectors strike a balance between functionality and subtlety, offering a thin, transparent solution.

TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane): The Clarity Champion


  • Good scratch resistance

  • High screen clarity

  • Thin profile

  • Some flexibility


  • Minimal impact protection

  • Difficult application and removal

  • Visible fingerprints

Best use cases: Balancing screen protection and clarity. TPU protectors, while clear and thin, demand a meticulous application process. They are resilient against scratches but may lack in impact protection.

Liquid Glass: The Invisible Guardian


  • High screen clarity

  • Good impact protection

  • No discernible thickness

  • Easy application


  • Poor scratch resistance

  • High screen glare

  • Almost impossible removal

Best use cases: For those desiring a "naked" device feel. Liquid glass promises impact protection but falls short on scratch resistance. Consider it as additional protection alongside other screen protectors.

Best Screen Protection for Your Device

Tempered Glass Takes the Crown

If protection is your priority, especially against scuffs, dings, and drops, tempered glass is your ally. While thicker, it ensures robust defense, often with added features like anti-glare.

Matte & Anti-Glare: PET or TPU for Reduced Reflections

For those bothered by reflections, opt for a matte or anti-glare protector. PET or TPU materials offer a solution, diffusing light and minimizing distractions.

Mirrored Screens: Tempered Glass Elegance

Transform your screen into a mirror with tempered glass protectors. A premium option, useful when you need a mirror on the go.

Privacy Filters: Customized Protection

Protect your screen from prying eyes with privacy screen protectors, available in various materials. Opt for your preferred material based on personal preference.

Additional Features Worth Considering

Anti-Fingerprint / Oleophobic Coating

Common yet valuable, this coating minimizes smudging on your screen. Remember, it wears off over time, impacting effectiveness.

Antimicrobial Coating

Prioritize hygiene with an antimicrobial coating, inhibiting bacteria and mold growth. A long-lasting feature that complements cleanliness.


In your quest for the perfect screen protector, armed with this knowledge, make an informed choice. Consider your priorities, whether it be robust protection, reduced glare, or added functionality. Your device deserves the best, and we're here to guide you on this journey.
