Items available in the range of screen protectors for iPhone 5
Generic and unbranded iPhone 5 screen protectors are an essential smartphone accessory and these fully compatible protectors can be found in tempered glass or matte/glare reduction PET film.
A genuine tempered glass screen protector helps to prevent scratches and damage to the fragile 3.5" screen of your iPhone 5. This is a simple and ideal choice for people who have a tendency to drop their phone in a bag or backpack that may also contain car or house keys capable of damaging the screen.
iPhone 5 tempered glass screen protectors feel flimsy, yet feature anti-scratch, anti-shatter capabilities and a hardness of 9H to help prevent chips and smashes. Fitting to curve of the handset and offering shock absorption, a tempered glass screen has an oleophobic coating to minimize fingerprints and smudges and fixes easily to the iPhone 5 display screen with a silicone adhesive.
Offering 100% coverage of the display effectively stops any chipping on the edge of the iPhone 5, which can often be a problem when these fragile smartphones are roughly handled or accidentally dropped on hard surfaces.
A mirrored iPhone 5 tempered glass screen protector offers style and high quality protection for the display of your iPhone 5. These covers fit both front and back of your device, offering all round shatterproof and scratch-resistant protection.
This item has an oleophobic coating to cut down on fingerprinting and smudges and fits perfectly to the screen to help prevent chipping to the edge of the glass. With no effect on touch screen sensitivity and available in colours including rose gold, gold, silver, black and blue, this is an ideal purchase for anyone who is prone to accidentally dropping their phone!
A PET (polyethylene terephthalate) film anti-glare or matte screen protector may not offer the same protective capabilities as a tempered glass protector, but will allow you to view your screen without the annoyance of glare or reflections from the sun or indoor lighting. PET screen protectors are more prone to curling from the screen, so often come in packs of 5 for quick replacement.
Ensure that you always check compatibility with your phone before purchase.
