iPhone Screen Protectors: True Protectors vs. Fake Pretenders

iPhone Screen Protectors: True Protectors vs. Fake Pretenders

Every Apple-lover knows two things about iPhones. First, they are sleek, stylish, and with over two million online apps available, can be personalized to reflect the uniqueness of every individual. Second, they can be quite pricey, and quite fragile...especially their screens. 

Make no mistake––no matter how careful you are, dropping your iPhone, even with a case on it, can result in a cracked or scratched display that is aesthetically unpleasing and can impede functionality.  

Thankfully, iPhone screen protectors exist to prevent this from happening. Be cautious, however, because not all are made equal.

To help you weed out the “pretenders” from the “protectors”, Screenflair has come up with our very own litmus test for screen protectors. Check it out below. 


Does It Have Anti-scratch Technology?

A well tempered screen protector will handle well against sharp objects, such as blades, edges, rocks, and will have no problem withstanding impacts that result from your phone being dropped. If a scratch appears, a screen protector worth its salt will ensure that the cut is superficial and not in the display itself.

Is Your iPhone Screen Protector Responsive, Adhesive, & Easy To Apply?

A quality screen protector should go virtually unnoticed. Whether plastic or tempered glass, its contours should be subtle and responsive. It should align perfectly with the iPhone’s screen and case so that it is nearly impossible to feel. A loose-fitting protective cover is, without a doubt, an inferior one, and will often betray itself by emitting an audible sound as the glue sticks and unsticks. A cheaply made screen protector that doesn’t fit your phone will also permit dust, hair, dirt and other tiny particles to wedge under it.

Now, just because you shouldn’t be able to sense the film doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be able to sense your fingers. Quite the opposite. In fact, you know you’ve chosen a poor-quality screen protector if it’s touch responsiveness is lacking or lagging. 

Finally, a quality screen protector should not require special skills or tools to apply it properly to your phone.  


Is Your iPhone Screen Protector Water & Oil Resistant?

High-quality screen protectors should be fully resistant to water, oil, and other viscous substances that can create blemishes and damage vital electronics if they seep into the phone itself. This means that you should be able to wipe away any droplets without worrying about pushing them into a hole or leaving smudge marks across the display.


Is Your iPhone Screen Protector Camera-Friendly?

You just know you’ve purchased a second-rate iPhone screen protector if it covers over the front camera, filters its aperture in any way, skews photos, or makes it more difficult for the camera to focus. A quality protector will be designed with your camera in mind, and made to ensure that there is no interference when you use it.
