An iPhone screen protector typically is a piece of very thin silicone with an adhesive backing that covers the entire front of the iPhone. Like a skin, it also has a circular cutout to expose the main navigation button at the bottom of the iPhone. A skin can then be placed over the screen protector. Not all iPhone screen protectors are created equal though. The better ones have dust resistant and anti-glare properties. Many iPhone skins and cases already come with a screen protector so you typically don`t need to purchase one separately.
You may wonder whether you really need a protective case for your iPhone 4 or 4S. Recent research is showing that the answer is yes, even if you don`t plan to snorkel with your phone. The iPhone 4 and 4S are championed as using "gorilla glass," but do not think that your iPhone 4 or 4S is more durable than earlier models or that it does not need to be protected. The 4 and 4S have more than twice the glass surface area as earlier iPhone models and, according to the research so far, the glass seems to be even more susceptible to damage. Square Trade, a third-party hardware warranty company, has reported an increase of 82% in screen damage claims for the iPhone 4 and 4S in the first 4 months of ownership, as compared with the iPhone 3GS. The company has stated that it expects to receive two times as many claims for broken iPhone 4s each year as compared to the 3GS.
Whilst your iPhone might just be the most sophisticated gadget that you own, it is by no means the strongest. The iPhone 3 weighs just 133 grams, whilst the Phone 4 is only 4 grams heavier at 137 grams. In designing the iPhone Apple will have had to trade-off strength for weight; less weight typically means less strength. Don`t be alarmed - your iPhone will not fall apart during everyday use but it might get damaged if you accidentally drop it. Don`t take a chance - get it protected!
