Our smartphone displays may be getting bigger and sharper, but they’re still just as susceptible to drops and scratches. That’s why a screen protector is a must. Zagg’s InvisibleShield has a pair of new screen protectors that will protect your device from the clumsiest of smartphone owners.
First up, InvisibleShield’s Sapphire Defense screen protector features a proprietary hybrid technology that infuses sapphire right into the glass. Sapphire is one of the world’s hardest gemstones (behind diamonds), giving smartphone owners the most advanced impact and scratch protection. Compared to a phone without a screen protector, Sapphire Defense offers 7x shatter protection.
All together, the Sapphire Defense system offers a sapphire displays that’s both smudge resistant and self-healing. Keys and smartphone displays normally don’t mix but with the Sapphire Defense system your screen’s integrity will remain in tact—even when your phone is a few years old.
Meanwhile, InvisibleShield has another screen protector called Glass+ Tempered Glass, which is no less durable.
The Glass+ series sports several different layers of protection, resulting in a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale (out of 10). Trust me, you need that kind of protection when you’re handling your phone multiple hours throughout the day.
What sets the Glass+ apart is its Ion Matrix technology, which InvisibleShield says provides industry-leading shatter and scratch protection, as well as super-strong reinforced edges.
If you plan on getting a new smartphone over the holidays, these screen protectors from InvisibleShield should be one of the first accessories you get. The Glass+ will run you $39.99, while the Sapphire Defense retails for $49.99.
