Gel and tempered glass screen protector: differences17/02/2021
When choosing a screen protector for our devices, which one is better? The gel screen protector or a tempered glass one? We will talk in this post about their differences and we will analyze other protectors such as plastic ones.
The use of mobile phones and tablets is massive. According to the latest figures, a person uses their device an average of two hours a day. In very young people this consumption can even reach 4 hours.
Therefore, smartphones and tablets can suffer blows. A blow that breaks the screen is something undesirable because it is the most important fault that you can suffer and the most expensive to fix.
On the other hand, if you take the precaution of having a screen protector, you will even feel relieved if it receives a blow. We do not have to tell you that screen protectors also safeguard them from all kinds of scratches or scratches.
However, the market there are several types of screen protectors and in this post we have proposed to analyze them so that you have the best information when buying. Let's start:
THE GEL SCREEN PROTECTOR
The gel screen protector is still widely used to protect phones from both Apple and Samsung, the most expensive brands on the market.
However. Keep in mind that the gel screen protector has a couple of flaws that we cannot ignore.
The first thing we want to highlight is that when you pass your fingers over this type of mobile screen protector, they are marked, leaving a very visible signal. In other types of protectors this does not happen. It's all due to the gel itself.
We also want to highlight as the second most important defect is that the gel screen protector is somewhat unpleasant to the touch.
If you have already had one of them, you will have noticed that it has a somewhat lumpy appearance that makes the touch with the screen not adequate.
However. We must also recognize that they are effective in the event of a fall or any other blow.
PLASTIC SCREEN PROTECTORS
Of these protectors we must say that they are effective in case of scratches or scratches. But they are not so in case of blows.
One of the great disadvantages that you can find is that they are very difficult to place. It is not strange to observe that small bubbles are always made which makes the visibility of the screen itself quite bad.
Another thing you should keep in mind is that they tend to detach from the screen on a regular basis. This is because they pick up a lot of dust from the environment.
The only advantage that we can find in this type of mobile device protectors is that they are very cheap. Possibly the cheapest on the market. Although it must be borne in mind that other protectors offer many more advantages for a little more price. But you will avoid all the discomforts that we have just mentioned
THE TEMPERED GLASS SCREEN PROTECTOR ADVANTAGES
If we compare the tempered glass proctectors, the gel screen protectors and the plastic ones, we find the tempered glass ones that we can already say that they are the best sellers.
They offer great resistance to shocks. They are proven to be the most effective and also protect your screen from all kinds of scratches and scrapes.
The truth is that tempered glass is used. One of the most resistant materials on the market and which is being used in various production processes such as household appliances.
Imagine that many doors of today's ovens are made with tempered glass, capable of withstanding very high temperatures.
Another fact that you must take into account is that its placement is very simple. Just wipe the original screen with a dry cloth and dust it off. There will be no bubbles and once it is in place it will never come off.
LA EVOLUCIÓN EN PROTECTORES DE PANTALLA PARA MÓVILES
In both gel screen protectors and in the plastic ones we will not find protectors that cover the entire screen.
With tempered glass it is possible to cover the whole screen and even adapts to curved screens.
Of course, if you have bought a latest generation iPhone, it is the option, the tempered glass that you should take into account the most.
Along with its resistance to all kinds of blows, the touch is the same as if you did not have any protection on your device. This is another big difference with respect to the gel or plastic screen protector.
In summary, it should be noted that tempered glass is prevailing in the protection of mobile phones and tablets.
