iPhone 4 Screen Protectors – A Must Have Accessory
There is a lot that can be said about Apple devices. It had quite a good reputation for having some of the best most trend setting devices in the world at the moment, ahead of the game in so many mediums that there are a lot of copycats. But the one area in which it falls down is little they anticipate customers damaging their products. No one wants to fork out that much money on a phone and have it break in their pocket several weeks later. Hence now there is such a large market for iPhone protection.
And one of the most important points of the iPhone to protect, probably the piece with the biggest sales point, particularly when you want to resell it for that new iPhone 5, is the screen. The screen is what everyone is looking at but unfortunately it’s prone to getting damaged against anything in your pocket and is the priciest piece of the iPhone to replace.
Screen protectors are not expensive; in fact they are one of the cheapest, most worthwhile pieces of protection you will ever find. The LCD screen is prone to scratches and over time these scratches tend to grow leaving your iPhone vulnerable to shattering. Remember, it is much less expensive to replace a screen protector than it is to replace the screen.
Keep in mind there are several makers of screen protectors.
If you are looking for run of the mill screen protection pick yourself up a cheap clean protector that won’t cost you through the roof. If you look further afield you can find tinted protectors also known as privacy protectors, created so other people may not see what you are doing on your phone (there are no guarantees this always works) but this also dims the screen to you.
The best way to shop for a protector is judge by budget and how many come in a pack. They won’t require replacing often but they will certainly require replacing eventually.
The most popular manufacturers of iPhone screen protectors are Griffin, Speck and Zagg. Just like any other iPhone accessory, all of these manufacturers produce a very similar product and it basically just depends on personal preference when it comes to choosing one. It is important to note that the Zagg InvisibleShield screen protectors have proven to be the toughest, but there has been many complaints that the screen is so protective that it diminishes the view of the screen for the user.
