Are Tempered Glass Screen Protectors Better Than Traditional Plastic Screen Protectors?

August 12, 2015

We buy insurance for our cars and homes because they are large investments but what can we do to protect our expensive mobile phones?  Screen protectors are the best insurance you can buy for your phone.  There are many different kinds of screen protectors from inexpensive plastic to more expensive Gorilla glass.  Many shop around before buying car insurance but not many do when it comes to protecting their phone.  Knowing what you are buying will help save this vital investment. 

There are two types of screen protectors on the market; plastic and tempered glass.   There are differences between the two that should be considered.  Plastic screen protectors are cheaper than glass but don’t provide the protection of tempered glass.   When you think of tempered glass think of the wind screen in your auto.  Tempered glass resists rocks, bugs and other hazards.  While a plastic wind screen would provide basic protection, as you can imagine it is not able to stand up to the harshness of everyday life so too this applies to mobile screens.

While tempered glass screen protectors are not infallible it is much better to replace a broken protector than the original glass on your mobile.  The down side of glass protectors is the thickness.  At an average of .5mm this doesn’t seem worth a concern but on some models of mobiles it does create a raised edge that some find not appealing.   Despite the thickness, the feel of a tempered glass screen is much closer to the original screen than that of a plastic protector and provides better responsiveness. 

Additionally mobile devices generate heat that can erode plastic screens.  The tempering process of glass screens involves a thermal heat treatment to increase the tensile strength of the glass, therefore glass screens are able to withstand the heat generated by the mobile device as well as be more scratch resistant like the wind screen of your car.
