How to protect your phone's screen for any situation

The mobile phone is our constant companion. Therefore, the vulnerable display is exposed to constant stress. A key in the same pocket as the phone can be just as much of a hazard as a fall on the hard floor. Fortunately, there are some good ways to protect the screen.

The screen protector glass

The most effective way to protect the screen is a Protective display glass. Thanks to a robust layer of glass, the display is protected from almost all external influences. But: not every protective glass is the same. The protective glasses differ in important features.

Hard as a diamond?

One important feature of protective glass is its hardness. The degree of hardness of a lens is indicated in "H". The higher the value, the harder and thus more robust the protective glass. High-quality protective glasses such as the Eiger display glass have a thickness of up to 9H. As a comparison: a diamond is the hardest material in the world and has a hardness of 10H.

Rounded for complete protection

Newer smartphones often have rounded edges. Therefore, flat protective glasses are not always ideal. Fortunately, protective glasses are now available in flat and rounded versions. A 2.5D protective glass refers to a flat display glass. These only lie on the flat surface of the display. This means that the edges are not optimally protected, but a protective cover can be used without any problems. A 3D Glass on the other hand is itself rounded and therefore also protects the rounded edge of a display. A 9D protective glass goes one step further in protecting the edge and offers an extra reinforced edge to protect the rounded sides of the display.

With or without protective cover

The different sizes and curvatures of the bezel have an impact on compatibility with protective cases. A flat 2.5D glass is generally compatible with all protective cases. It is recommended to combine a 2.5D glass with a protective case, as the protective case covers the edge that is not protected by the protective glass. Since 3D protective glasses extend over the edge, they can cause problems with many protective covers. However, there are so-called Case friendly versionshowever, there are so-called "protective glasses" which are adapted in size for use with protective covers. A 9D protective glass, however, cannot be used with a protective cover because the reinforced frame leaves no room for a cover.

Alternatives to protective glass

If a layer of glass on your screen is too conspicuous or too thick, there are other ways to protect the display. A more inconspicuous alternative is a protective film. This is less thick than protective glass and is made of plastic. However, a protective film offers less effective protection due to its lower hardness.

Liquid screen protectors are particularly easy to apply. This consists of liquid glass that can be easily applied to the display.

For complete protection of the smartphone, there are also cases, such as the Avalanche from Eiger, which completely enclose the mobile phone and thus protect both the screen and the back.
