Ever since they were introduced, screen protectors have been somewhat of a divisive topic. While the majority of smartphone users agree that they protect the screen, cell phone purists claim that they take away from the experience as they stick out like a sore thumb and can be really distracting.

We at The FIX consider them to be an integral part of the smart phone experience and urge all our readers to buy one. Here’s why we think that screen protectors are so important these days.

Ever since they were introduced, screen protectors have been somewhat of a divisive topic. While the majority of smartphone users agree that they protect the screen, cell phone purists claim that they take away from the experience as they stick out like a sore thumb and can be really distracting.

We at The FIX consider them to be an integral part of the smart phone experience and urge all our readers to buy one. Here’s why we think that screen protectors are so important these days.

1.Unrivaled Protection:
Cracked iPhone without Screen ProtectorThe best thing about screen protectors is that they prevent your phone’s screen from shattering. Upon sudden impact (e.g. you dropping your phone), glass screen protectors will absorb the brunt of the force and crack, while the screen underneath comes out of the collision with the floor completely unscathed.

Given the fact that 45% of smartphone users will damage their screens at one point or another, i’s of the upmost importance to develop a proactive approach as far as looking after your phone’s screen is concerned. This is why we highly recommend using screen protectors to shield your phones.

Although most phones these days sport a scratch resistant, Gorilla Glass screen, they’re still susceptible to scratches over time. Therefore, if you have a high-end android or the latest smart phone, it is better to be safe than sorry!

2.Enhance the Phone’s Touch:
Contrary to popular belief, a screen protector enhances your phone’s touch, making it much easier for you to use its features. There are ultra-clear screen protectors available on the market that do an amazing job of producing a much clearer display. These screen protectors prevent smudges from appearing on the screen and are also very effective against stains.

3. Increase Privacy:
If you’re tired of your friends or coworkers peeking at your screen when you’re typing a message or checking your email, then we have great news. There are specialized screen protectors commercially available (commonly called privacy screen protectors) that prevent other people from looking at your screen.

These polarized screen protectors shield your phones from prying eyes by making the screen readable from just one angle (i.e. the front of the phone). So when the phone is tilted or is at an angle (e.g. if someone is taking an interest in your phone from across the table) the contents of your phone’s screen won’t be visible to them. This effectively guarantees privacy and confidentiality!

4. Reduce Glare:

Gone are the days when you would be unable to use your phone in the sun because these anti-glare screen protectors minimize the glare and make the screen easily readable!

It’s because of these reasons (and many others) that we’re such big advocates of screen protectors. If you’re looking for heavy-duty cell phone screen protectors and cases then we at The FIX would love to help. With more than 90 stores across America, we can provide your phone the protection it needs without affecting its performance!
