Most conventional screen guards sold nowadays are adequate at scratch protection however they do nothing to help protect the screen from a serious fall or a particularly abrasive surface. There is no doubt that the complete screen protection from nicks, scratches and just general abuse is provided by tempered glass.
The Otium iPhone 6 Screen Protector
The tempered glass is of a Japanese make rated with a 9H+ hardness which is more than enough to handle anything you can throw at it. The qualities of the glass have been kept such that it gets out of the way once it has been applied. There is no lag on touch response, and the surface is smooth to touch, and it is completely transparent.
It also comes with a feature that is unique and particularly thoughtful: the Otium Align Holder. This is included with the glass as a fool proof aid for perfect glass application. If you are anything like us, then you know the struggle of trying to get the perfect orientation while avoiding air bubbles and any smudges during application. We can honestly say that Otium has cracked this. We tried it with a couple of different people, and it worked every single time.
The iPhone 6 glass has been designed in such a way that there is a slight curve towards the edges. The tempered glass being completely flat cannot cover this tiny part of the front of the phone; however that is true for all screen guards available on the market.
This is another reason the aligner comes in so handy since simply applying the protector with the edge of the screen as a guide is not an option.
The attention to detail continues with the Anti-bacterial, Anti-Fingerprint and water resistance built into each protector. While we were happy with the phone being smudge free, we do not recommend you dunk yours in water even with the protector on!
The tempered glass adds only a 0.33mm to the thickness of your phone which is also a huge plus. Overall, the high-quality choice of materials, innovative and hassle-free application and a competitive price makes this the best option for tempered glass protection for the iPhone in the market right now.
The Otium iPhone 6 screen protector comes with a lifetime warranty.
