Very scratch resistant and easy to apply
on 21 September 2016
Bought one of these after trying to apply one of my girlfriend's "3 for £5" screen protectors which seemed to be thin, flexible plastic. The cheap protectors are a pain to get in place in the correct position, without bubbles, but the Anker screen protector is not like this at all. It is a rigid glass screen which is slightly flexible, and very hard-wearing. Application is easy, and it's easy to reposition if you don't get it right the first time. As it's rigid glass it's much easier to apply without getting air bubbles under it in the first place.
I work in a joinery workshop with lots of sharp blades around and, having let curiosity get the better of me, I have tested the screen for how hard it is to scratch with various cutting tools by scratching on the part around the edges (not over the screen display!). First I tried with a standard Stanley blade - initially I tried a bit gingerly as I wasn't sure how easily it would scratch, but it turns out that even pressing quite hard I could not get if to make a mark! I've also tried with a tungsten-carbide router cutter, and although these did scratch the glass (as it's a harder material), it still required quite a lot of effort and pressing quite hard.
In actual normal use, I have had this installed on my phone for 6 months or so and there are no visible marks or scratches on the screen, except for the one I made on purpose!
UPDATE: Dropped my phone on its face on a hard floor, picked it up and saw a crack and thought "oh @#%£!". Went to take the screen protector off and realised that it was just the protector that had cracked, while the screen itself was saved. I've now bought a second one of these to find that they have improved the application method by adding some "hinge stickers" - make sure you search for "Anker screen protector how to apply" and find the helpful video. The new fitting method means you basically can't put it in the wrong place. Absolutely happy with this product and would give it 6 stars if I could. Excellent value, quality, and real-life-tested performance.
