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.
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.
The touch screen is one area that many people fail to protect. However, as the main interface with the iPhone is via the touch screen it is extremely important that this area of the phone be given the very best protection. Protecting the touch screen on your iPhone is simply a case of applying a screen protector. Screen protectors, particularly those manufactured by Zagg, have been designed to withstand sharp objects such as keys and coins helping to keep your screen scratch-free. They also help avoid the `smudgy` screen affect brought about by the natural oils on your finger tips.
