How do you keep your phone
’s screen safe from sharp keys, impacts, and the world’s many pointy objects? A thin, lightweight screen protector from a reliable brand such as Otterbox
can prevent shattering if your shiny new iPhone 6
or Galaxy S7
falls to the floor or gets hit with an errant yo-yo.
When You Need Toughness...
If you want to avoid a costly trip to the cell phone repair shack, a screen protector with a 9H hardness rating—meaning it cannot be scratched by a 9H grade drafting pencil—is your best bet.
When You Need Cleanliness…
And if it’s your kids doing the dropping, upgrading to a protector with an oleophobic coating is a must for shielding against smudges and messy fingerprints. Look for tempered glass screen protectors that are designed for easy application and full bubble-free coverage.
When You Need Privacy...
Some phone screen protectors serve a dual function by tinting your screen when it’s viewed at an angle, preventing nosy bystanders from peering at private texts or emails. It’s one of those phone accessories that fit into any lifestyle
, whether you’re a parent, world traveler, or chronic shutterbug.
