Conclusion

Deciding between a glass and film display protector is not easy. Which of the two provides optimum protection for you will depend on your requirements. The glass wins outright in matters of scratch protection and durability; the film, on the other hand, is appealing as it is less visible and offers good value for money.

Glass display protectors

Our glass protectors prevent a lot of damage and your smartphone gets the maximum possible display protection. High-quality materials and the fit of the protective glass ensure that you can take the device with you everywhere without any need for concern: Beneath the protective glass, the display is totally safe from scratches, shocks and impacts. If something does get broken, then it’s only the glass display protector. And that’s how it should be.

To all glasses

The glass

The glass consists of a total of four different layers. This guarantees that the glass is totally safe and resistant (also called ‘four-layer technology’). The glass cannot shatter if it gets broken, but behaves like a windscreen or shower cubicle. The shatter protection film, which is installed in the middle of the glass, holds the fragments together. This also means that the display remains protected until the glass is replaced.
