Slight clarification: -The two cheaper screen protectors, don't claim to be level 9 in hardness specifically, but claim to be "9H". The point I should have added is that 9H is not the same as 9, and that 9H is MUCH weaker, but is used by these companies because it sounds a lot like "level 9", when it actually isn't - which you'll see demonstrated in the video. Thanks for watching once again, really appreciate it ❤️

Sapphire would be best for screen protectors!

Those bubbles are caused by dust and pushing on them can scratch your screen or dent the protector. That’s why it’s super important to make sure there’s no dust whatsoever on the screen and if there still is a dust flick you slightly lift up the corner and use a sticker to get it out and then push down.

i have the speck screen protector, let me tell you everytime i drop my phone it usually works to protect my phone & all. i also never had issues until i stretched out my walmart phone case.. so if you have a good case, should work well.

all i have now are two cracks in my phone case and a glass corner crack.. nothing serious from dropping occasionally on concrete. so i would say it protects it. my phone is still brand new and no scratches on actual phone. screen protector glass damaged is fine.

Isnt the fact that it is gorilla glass supposed to be the screen protection mechanism? Put a screen protector over your screen that is already protected?

So basically glass is glass and when you drop your phone while standing and you're 6"5, then you may have a chance they all good. Dropped the s10 several times from that hight without a screen protector and it has damage from only one fall.

I have a s9+ and I use it without any case or screen protector. I carry it with my keys in my poket. I dropped it several times and there is not a single scratch on the screen. Same story with my previous phone Nokia 1520. How the fuck can you manage to scratch a phone screen?

I design screens displays. 9H is not 9 mohrs hardness. 9H is the typical hardness of a 9H pencil. They weren’t lying. Also consider the mass of your phone vs the mass of the brick. Your simulation is not the equivalent of dropping your phone from this height. The Sapphire screen protector is good but consider a screen protector that has a nano coating hydrophobic and or oleophobic coating to prevent finger prints.

This is how phones in our family got damaged: Fell from table to the ground, because it didn’t have a shell (giving some millimeters from it’s frame)a tiny stone caused a crack A Neffos fell out of its sleeve and crashed with it’s corner to the floor. The plastic housing somehow was flexible, the screen not. A glass of jam/marmelade slipped out of the hand. Hit a Samsung at the button area. Except the 6s all our phones have a glass protection. I removed it from the 6s because the edges around the button caused cuts in my finger. All other protectors have harmful cracks. One was nearly pealed off by a cat during a mouse game. An other one got a crack by a Nerv bullet shot from more than five meters.

Heres mine: My little brother: Claimed he was master flipper, and flipped his phone. His phone hit a rock and broke the touch screen. My older sister: She had a phone case coming, and my mom gave her old one to her while it came in. My sister said it was ugly. A day before her case came in she dropped it and cracked the screen(not broken) My oldest brother: He had a 100 dollar otter box case. He dropped it and the camera hit the edge of the coffee table. Really bad luck. It wasnt broken, but he got a new phone. He shot his old one with his Kar - 98K. That was the nail in the coffin. My dad: he had a flip phone, and our cat spilled coffee on it. Since my cat had also turned it on the phone short circuited. My older brother: 1 week ago, we were on Molokai Hawaii visiting my grandpa. We were using one of his Jeeps, and thd Jeep was very dark green. My older brother and I had to sit in the trunk because there were not enouph seats. He left his phone in the car. It overheated, but that wasnt what broke it, it was because it overheated his software for some reason became very buggy.

Using new phones to test damage is simply filthy. You could have done the testing with dummy phones or non working second hand ones. You destroyed 3 perfect phones is just bad when there are better alternatives. Waste of money, waste of tech, specially when ewaste is a concern. Though the 3 phones won't contribute much to ewaste it still felt quite bad.

Buy it from bestbuy. Idk what kind of screen protector it is but Best Buy gives you a life time warranty to replace it whenever it’s cracked as many times as you’d like. I’ve never actually damaged the screen and it goes on perfectly every time

Those Sapphire ones are legit! I like to use the gel like ones that 'heal themselves'. They definitely work well with preventing most kinds of scratches. Obviously I'm not gonna take a knife to it to see, but the idea is that as long as the cut isn't too wide, the gel-like screen should just kinda fuse back into itself. Can't say much about display quality degradation... But I do know some of those cheaper screen protectors tend to have some kind of grain or coating on the adhesive side that does slightly degrade the quality of your display. One day you'll take it off and be like 'damn, I didn't know the resolution was that clear...'

The mobile phone screen protector affects the sensitivity of the mobile phone screen and the control feel. The contact resistance between the ordinary screen protector and the finger is large, and the smooth touch of the glass is very different.

Yeah. It makes sense. There was barely a difference between the 1 dollar and the 40 dollar protectors. So buy the 1 dollar one, save 39 dollars, and you get an ok screen protector, instead of the same thing for 40 bucks. But the 80 dollar barely was damaged, so if you have the money, buy that one

I'm personally using Gadgetshieldz screen protector. Since its a fully body screen protector it also offers protection for the glass back too. Even though the back is made of tempered glass it's still prone to scratches, so i would definitely recommend using Gadgetshieldz screen protector.
