The problem with screen protectors

A good screen protector is hard to find.

They’re billed as a means of protecting your investment. An add-on so that when you drop your phone, there’s less chance you’ll end up with a cracked or broken screen. Yet more often than not, they end up being little more than an exercise in frustration.

For one, the majority of screen protectors sacrifice both functionality and sensitivity. As anyone who’s tried typing on a traditional tempered glass protector will attest, they wreak havoc on accuracy and sensitivity. While some people might be able to live with that, anyone who uses their phone for anything other than basic text messaging is in for tons of missed inputs, typos, and lost productivity.

There’s also the matter of security. Many phones now incorporate in-screen fingerprint sensors – to say that this technology doesn’t play nice with the lion’s share of screen protectors would be putting it lightly. Look forward to multiple unlock attempts, sore fingers and thumbs, and ultimately so much frustration that you’ll want to give up on the idea of a fingerprint sensor altogether.

Many screen protectors don’t even do what they advertise.

Given how much personal data your smartphone contains, even sacrificing something so minor is a bad move. If your phone is lost or stolen, the lack of fingerprint authentication makes it that much easier for someone to gain access to the personal data it contains. That could be everything from passwords to personal photos to confidential emails.

Worse still, many screen protectors don’t even do what they advertise. There are a ton of low-quality products flooding the market, such that it’s hard to tell if what you buy will actually do anything except cause frustration. These knock-offs often have easily-liftable corners, meaning they’re also prone to collecting dust or creating air bubbles – something which will inevitably make typing even more painful.

Even high-quality protectors have multiple shortcomings. They often aren’t made for curved or bezel-less screens, nor are they made to fit anything beyond a very narrow range of cases. This means being left with a mismatched, jutting screen protector which either cracks or reduces the sensitivity of large portions of your screen to zero.

Here’s where Whitestone Dome Glass comes in. As the brand responsible for the first ‘full-screen adhesive’ tempered glass screen protector designed for curved, bezel-less phones, they have a history of creating products that offer protection and usability in equal measure.

Created through collaboration with Qualcomm and Samsung, Whitestone’s S20 screen protectors feature advanced technology with unmatched touch sensitivity across the entire screen – including the fingerprint sensor. More importantly, it achieves this without sacrificing strength, offering a 9H hardness, scratch-resistant coating for your screen. This coating also reduces screen smudging, with a unique curing process that adheres it securely to your phone through UV light, ensuring it fits your screen – and case – like a glove.

Better yet, on the off chance that your screen protector does suffer damage, minor cracks and scratches can easily be filled in via Whitestone’s Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive (LOCA). A good screen protector is hard to find. That’s precisely why Whitestone made its own. With Whitestone Dome Glass, you no longer need to worry about poor sensitivity, a lack of protection, or a poor fit.

You can rest assured that your screen is safe, and keep using your phone exactly as you did before.
