When I was at CE Week the guys over at BodyGuardz were showing off their ScreenGuardz Pure tempered glass screen protector and how easy it is to install. Made from a special chemically-tempered glass ‘exceeding the hardness of steel’, ScreenGuardz Pure screen protector “sets the standard in protection” according to the company. Performance is ensured by a smudge-resistant coating, coupled with high touch sensitivity. Well let me tell you, I am not about to truly put it through the test but I will say during my everyday use where I have been known to put scratches in my screen, this definitely does the job better than any other screen protector I have used in the past.
I am one who hates installing screen protectors on my phone because for some strange reason, I always have a problem whether it is bubbles that wont come out of dust that always finds its way underneath. Before I left the booth at CE Week, I received my ScreenGuardz Pure glass screen protector and could not wait to install it on my phone. It went off without a hitch. I didn’t even have to use the ol’ steamy bathroom trick. If you’re unsure how to do it I suggest watching screen protector install videos on YouTube.
It really feels great on the screen though I have to say I was skeptical based on other screen protectors I have used in the past. For me tempered glass is the way to go!
While you might be too afraid to test it and believe me, I find no real reason for you to do so, the ScreenGuardz Pure by BodyGuardz can withstand hammers, nails, and boxcutters, let alone a fall from a few feet. It’s made of a chemically-tempered glass that is both touch-sensitive and very resistant to smudges, common complaints with many other screen protectors. The ScreenGuardz Pure can be easily applied and removed without damaging the phone.
