To start with, consumer electronic industry is constantly evolving and changing with the passage of time. There was a time when we all had those simple screen protectors for our brand new iPhones and iPads. However, those protectors didn't offer much in terms of mobile protection. After that, the next big thing in screen protection was tempered glass, which was stronger than ordinary glass but it too had drawbacks: they were made for a specific model such as iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, iPhone 5s and there was no such thing as one size fits all.

Liquid Screen Protector, which is developed using nanotechnology, by Shark Proof is now becoming one of the fastest used products for media device protection. Let's take a look at few of the features of liquid screen protector in contrast to tempered glass.

Liquid Screen Protector vs Tempered Glass for iPhone

Liquid Screen Protector vs Tempered Glass for iPhone

Higher Life Span of iPhone Glass Screen

Let's face it glass can't protect glass; tempered glass can be cracked easily after using it for 6 months. There is no sense in protecting the glass surface of your iPhone's screen with another glass. On the other hand, liquid screen protector can offer protection up to one year or more. Moreover, it also hardens the surface glass of your iPhone or iPad screen making it scratch resistant.

Elimination of Dust and Smudges

Liquid screen protector also helps you in removing and protecting your iPhone or iPad against all sorts of dust, finger prints and smudges. You just need a piece of fiber cloth to wipe the glass surface and your glass screen of iPhone or iPad is neat and clean. However, cleaning a tempered glass is a very long and time consuming process; no matter how hard you try, there is always dust trapped inside the screen.

One Size fits all

Liquid screen protector can be applied easily to any iPad or iPhone of any size whether it is an iPhone 6 plus, iPad mini, or iPhone 5S; so you don't need to have a tailored tempered glass. Additionally, you don't have to be concerned about the edges. The liquid automatically balances itself.

Enjoy Better Screen Clarity

One of the major disadvantages of using screen protector is that after a few weeks of usage, the protector starts to develop air bubbles on the screen of your iPhone. This significantly reduces the performance and you are not able to enjoy the high definition experience anymore. With liquid screen protectors, the glass screen becomes free of air bubbles. Moreover, after liquid is applied on the screen, it gives you a high gloss finish and screen clarity is also enhanced.

Water repellent

After the application of liquid screen protector on your iPhone, the glass screen starts to repel water. The nanotechnology based liquid has a smaller molecular structure compared to water molecular structure, hence, water is unable to pass through liquid protector. However, this does not make your iPhone or iPad water proof, so don't try to throw it in a swimming pool after applying the protector. Tempered glass does not have any type of water repellent properties and they do not offer any type of protection against water.
