This review is from: iPhone SE Screen Protector, Anker Xtreme Scratch Terminator Ultra-Clear Tempered-Glass Screen Protector for iPhone SE / iPhone 5S / iPhone 5C / iPhone 5 [Lifetime Warranty] (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Anyone who knows how to take care of a phone knows you need a screen protector. Scratch proof glass just isn't after enough time has passed. But there's a reason manufacturers stick with glass for screens. It's tactile, your finger glides over it with silky precision. It gives the phone a solid and dependable touch to it. A solid reassurance. Most importantly, glass gives the best transmission of light from the underlying pixels so it makes the display look vibrant.
Then you have to slap some cheap plastic on top of it.
Don't get me wrong, some plastic screen protectors are good. But in truth, all reduce the pleasing aesthetics of your screen and most definitely all of them reduce the brightness, vibrance and certainly in one case in my experience the perceived resolution of your phone display. For the longest time this was just the status quo and a necessary evil if you wanted to keep your actual screen scratch free. (If you're like me you only keep your phone about a year and then aim to sell it. The more scratches, you have the less you can sell it for).
Along came glass screen protectors. All of the benefit of a plastic screen protector with none of it's downsides. In addition, a glass screen protector can actually save your screen from a severe impact. I dropped my 17" macbook pro, a fairly large chunk of milled aluminium onto the top of my iPhone 5S and the screen shattered completely. I was heart broken. In an act of pure senseless hope, I peeled off my Anker glass screen protector to see if maybe, maybe it wasn't so bad underneath. I was slack jawed as the shattered protector peeled off entirely intact, no glass travelling everywhere, but the actual phone screen had not a mark on it. I looked at it under my lab microscope. Not A Scratch.
This is a revolutionary product. I love it. The only con to having this is an ever so slight increase in thickness in your phone. Plastic screen protectors are negligibly thick but glass has to be a bit thicker to be effective. Personally, I like the added thickness, modern phones are, to me, increasingly flimsy feeling. This gives it a bit more substance.
