7 Types of Tempered Glasses and this one is better for your phone

You might be wondering how many types of tempered glass are available and which one is best for your phone screen. With tempered glass, your phone screen can’t get scratched or broken in small ways.

Here are 7 Types of Tempered Glasses and which Tempered Glasses is better for your phone by Technical Dost.

1. ordinary tempered glass

You must know a lot about it. One of the most common kinds of screen protectors on the market is made of tempered glass. Given how popular it is, this is probably one of the better choices as well. But keep in mind that glass protectors usually have a silicone base, a PET film layer, and a glass layer on top. This has so many layers of protection, like 10d, 11d, etc.

This tempered glass can help keep scratches from showing up on the screen of your phone.

  • Fingerprints and Smudges: Fingerprints, smudges, and dust stick to tempered glass.
  • Optical Quality: Very clear and lets a lot of light through, but it reflects a lot and causes glare.
  • Flexible and strong: Will not get scratched by keys, keychains, and other “common pocket items.” It is not bendable; it breaks.

2. matte-finish glass

  • This is a type of glass screen protector that has a matte finish. It is still hard to scratch, but the surface has a “frosted quality.” It seems to make things less clear, but it also cuts down on reflections and glares a lot. It can have black bracelets or not.
  • Fingerprints and smudges: light smudge, but no fingerprint.
  • Quality of sight: Even though it lets light through well, the frosted surface makes it less clear. Not shiny, so no glare.
  • It can bend and it can be hard: Still, it’s glass. It’s not bendable and breaks.

3. A privacy glass

Don’t like it when people on buses and trains stare at your screen? Then you might want to get one of these screen protectors for privacy. They are basically screen protectors made of tempered glass with a bit of polarizing magic, which limits the viewing angles.

But not everyone can do it… You have to realize that not being able to easily see your screen is a double-edged sword. Not a good thing at all for playing games or watching videos. You should only use it if you are a superspy or if you are doing very sensitive work on your device.

  • Attraction to Fingerprints and Smears: An attraction to fingerprints and smears.
  • Quality of sight: Good clarity, but you have to look at it straight on to see it. It seems to make the screen darker and not let a lot of light through.
  • It is both soft and hard: This glass is soft, but if you drop it, it won’t break. But you can be sure that it won’t get scratched.

4. Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Screen Protector

Even if you don’t know what PET stands for, you may have heard of them. Yes, this is pretty much the same kind of plastic that is used to make bottles that can be recycled. PET screen protectors are hard to find these days, and you might guess that’s because they don’t protect very well.

  • Attracts fingerprints and smears.
  • Optical Quality: Very clear and lets a lot of light through.
  • Rigidity and flexibility: not very rigid and doesn’t break. But I don’t think this thin piece of plastic will keep scratches away.

5. Hydrogel

Fingerprints and Smears: Strangely, there are no fingerprints, but there are still some smears.

The optical quality: is very clear and lets a lot of light through, but it is very reflective.

Flexibility and hardness: The texture is like rubber, which is very flexible and won’t break. It looks like it could handle small scratches.

Yet another screen protector with a cool scientific name. In simple terms, hydrogel is a “plastic made from rubber.” It’s not as good as PET, but it’s better in several ways:

Less likely to get scratched than PET.

Stretchy, not hard

It has some self-healing abilities and can “heal” itself from small scratches.

But there’s one thing I really dislike about hydrogels: they’re so hard to use that it took me a long time to get rid of the air bubbles.

6. Ceramic

It looks like ceramic is a mix of glass and plastic. It can bend, but not as much as plastic or gel. If you put too much stress on it, it will break. Scratch resistance, on the other hand, is a different thing. It feels even better than glass. Yes, reflection is the only thing I’m not interested in.

Fingerprints and Smears: It says on the package that it is “anti-fingerprint,” but I still left some traces.

Optical Quality: It is clear and let’s light through well, but it is shiny and bright.

Toughness and flexibility: they are flexible, but if pushed too far, they will break. if not a little tougher than glass.

7. Liquid Glass Screen Protector

Lastly, something called “Nano Miracle Liquid Self-Healing Glass” is making the rounds on the internet. All you have to do is put a thin layer on your smartphone, and it will be unbreakable like the Nokia one. Even better, it will fix itself. I can only say, “What a load of crap!” Don’t try to get it.

 

Which is the best screen protector?

You learned from “Technical Dost” that there are different types of tempered glasses on the market. But which one of these phone screen protectors is best? Well, that depends on how hard you are on your phone and how you use it. Here are some things.

Glass: Excellent optical quality. But they are shiny, they scatter, and fingerprints stick to them.

Ceramic: This material seems to be better than glass.

Plastic: It can be bent and has good clarity. and does not break. although it is not as hard to scratch as glass.

Glossy: lets more light through but shows fingerprints and glare more.

Matte: Lessens smudging and gets rid of glare, but some optical quality is lost.

It’s basically everything you need.

Use a matte hydrogel screen protector to keep your smartphone from getting dirty with fingerprints. Use ceramic to make it less likely to get scratched. For something that won’t break, use plastic or gel.
