When it comes to protecting your iPhone's display, it's important to consider all the options available. If you often put your phone with your keys, face accidental drops, or just want to prevent scratches, UAportal tells you about two popular options that can protect your phone screen: a hydrogel film and a screen protector.

Hydrogel film

A hydrogel film made of thermoplastic polyurethane has several advantages for protecting the display. It not only effectively protects against scratches, but also hides fingerprints.

In addition, there are different types of hydrogel film:

1. Oleophobic – reduces the number of fingerprints.

2. Anti-spyware – protects the screen from prying eyes.

3. Mirror – able to reflect light.

4. Matte and glossy.

The film has a minimal impact on the sensitivity of the display, providing a comfortable user experience. In addition, it is easy to apply and replace as needed.

Protective glass

Glass provides maximum reliability by protecting the display from scratches and shocks. Thanks to its strength to withstand accidental drops, high-quality tempered glass can save you from expensive and time-consuming display repairs. It has advantages such as increased hardness, maintaining screen sensitivity, and preserving image clarity and color reproduction. The screen protector also has an oleophobic coating that acts as a barrier to smudges and fingerprints, making it easier to clean.

What to choose?

The choice between film and glass ultimately depends on your specific requirements. If your primary concern is protection against accidental drops, glass is the best choice. However, if your priority is to prevent minor damage, such as scratches from keys, a hydrogel film will prove to be a reliable option. Evaluate your needs and make an informed decision that suits your preferences.
