Tablet / phone glass protector

Recommended Posts

Can some of you recommend a glass protector brand that is pretty thick but not too thick, scrolls well, and protects very well. I tried supershieldz but i find them to be very flimsy and dont care for them.

they're all pretty comparable now as far as I've been able to tell. the brands do vary from device model to model but not much.

 

I usually just look up screen protectors on Amazon and go with one of the higher rated ones based on my device model :)

I always either use bestskinsever for a fexible protector or Nuglas branded ones off eBay if you prefer glass and they never fail me.

Hello,

Like @Brandon H I tend to go with whatever has good results listed on Amazon.

I should of added I prefer the thicker, harder tempered glass protector. Not the paper thin kind. :)

I never use a screen protector anyone.  Had my  current phone for 3ys and not a scratch.  Tablet, for 7yrs not a scratch.  I do by a case/wrap for my phone and a flip cover for my tablets.

Off topic a little but, I'm the same. The phone that has a slight curve on the edges so it's near impossible to get a good one. A decent case, and keeping it away from keys in pockets etc does the trick. 

 

@BruinatorAs others have said check out something like Amazon, and read some of the reviews

I love the SuperShieldz https://www.supershieldz.com/

 

Super easy to wipe of finger prints and stuff.

Does supershieldz have thicker glass. I just tried one and found it paper thin? Also, do the thicker ones have an anti-glare option for viewing outside?

I have used Xtremeguard, they are very easy to install and right now have a special for 75% off, which makes them around $2 to $3! (Tablets may be a bit more)

Not sure about that. Normally, I wouldn't even use a screen protector myself, but like how easy they are to clean smudges and stuff off of them compared to the basic screen.

is .33 mm  the thickest they make covers now or do some come thicker and more sturdy ?

the Plexiglas protectors are all roughly the same thickness from my experience

 

my guess is because if they were any thicker it would start to cause touch sensitivity issues

This is the first time I've ever had one (included with my SUPCASE UNICORN PRO case for my Pixel 3a).  The protector isn't the problem; the case itself is slightly oversized on the sides (result - it doesn't quite touch the side buttons/rockers and is forcing a deeper push inward for charger and headphone cables); this is the first time I have had such an issue with any case.  The touch-sensitivity issue (which was a worry) is an issue I have NOT had, though.
