Smartphones are expensive. And we are all familiar with the very unpleasant feeling of damaging your phone. The horror is so pervasive in our culture that even hearing somebody else drop their phone will make you cringe on the inside.
OK, but what makes a good screen protector?
Well, there are a number of things you should be looking for.
- Tempered glass screen protectors are better than plain plastic ones
They feel better to the touch and they are arguably better at defending the screen
- They need to be thin yet durable
I’ve literally seen a screen protector start crumbling from the edge and move towards the middle of the screen
- They need to fit the device just right
A warped screen protector can lift off from the screen and create ugly bubbles. Some screen protectors’ edges don’t go all the way to the end of the screen and create an annoying “rainbow” edge. On the other hand, they need to stay within their bounds and not mesh with phone cases, too
- They need to be easy to install
I’ve ruined plenty of screen protectors by putting them on crooked and therefore having to remove them. Bonus points for screen protectors that come with all the accessories you need.
I need a screen protector for iPhone 12
There are plenty of options out there, but some are better than others. We have the pleasure of presenting the Techmatte amFilm OneTouch glass screen protector. Let’s see if it ticks all the right boxes.
Tempered glass? Check. Thin protector with a good fit? Double check. Easy to install? Oh, boy! That’s where the name OneTouch comes from.
See, the amFilm screen protector comes in a plastic tray that is designed to perfectly fit around your iPhone 12. You just slap it on there and you don’t need to worry about aligning the screen protector yourself. First, use the provided accessories (wet cloth, dry cloth, dust-cleaning stickers) to perfectly wipe down your screen. Then, remove the plastic cover of the screen protector and place the tray over the phone.
