Tempered Glass Screen Protectors for Apple iPhone X

Do Not Rock an iPhone X Without a Tempered Glass Screen Protector

A tempered glass screen protector prevents the display glass on your iPhone from getting scratched. The glass screen protector helps add a layer of durability to your iPhone X’s display without sacrificing touch sensitivity or clarity.

Why use a tempered glass screen protector for the iPhone X?

There are different types of screen protectors for your iPhone X. Tempered glass is the most popular type because it’s tougher, in terms of drop- and scratch-protection, and easy to install. On the Mohs hardness scale, it measures anywhere between 7 and 8, which is the same as the iPhone X’s display glass. Also, a tempered glass protector is thicker than any plastic film, which again translates to much better protection.

Why the iPhone X needs a tempered glass screen protector more than any other iPhone

With the iPhone X, Apple came up with an all-new front design. There is no longer the trademark Apple home button. Also:

  • The bezels on all four sides have become thinner, particularly on the sides and at the bottom. Basically, there’s a lot more display on the screen.
  • This also means easily discernible cracks or scuffs. The bezels on the previous iPhones ensured that even if the bottom or the top of the phone cracked or scratched, they didn’t come between you and the phone.
  • Since the iPhone’s front is all display, even a minor blemish at the corners or edges of the phone’s front mars the viewing experience.
An iPhone X screen protector saves money

Replacing a cracked iPhone X screen can be a costly affair. If you go through Apple, your repair costs could be anywhere above £250 since the beautiful OLED display is attached to the glass and is not cheap. Fortunately, this potential cost can be mitigated if you apply a tempered glass screen protector onto the phone. If your iPhone X slips off the table or you accidentally drop your phone on a concrete pavement with the screen protector on, the maximum damage you would have to put up with is a cracked screen protector. The display glass underneath would most likely be pristine.

Will the tempered glass affect the functionality of your iPhone X?

No. Tempered glass screen protectors for the iPhone X are usually less than 0.5 mm thick. This should not hinder visibility or the touch response of the display. Typing, zooming, scrolling, and every other gesture should work as before. Also, the glass protector will have cut outs in the right places, such as speaker grille, to ensure the phone’s functionality is not hindered in any way. Face ID and the selfie camera will work like normal too.
