1. What is tempered glass?

1-2 years ago most people did not even know what tempered glass is. At first glance on the internet, we find that it is a layer of glass above the screen of our mobile phone, which to be made starts from the classic glass and is heated / cooled very quickly. This glass breaks differently from ordinary glass. When broken, it creates fragments with rounded edges and not sharp like plain glass.

A tempered glass is a protection of many layers. It has a layer of absorbent silicone, a layer of a polyethylene terephthalate film, a layer of treated glass and finally an oleophobic (hydrophobic) coating. Tempered glass is about 5 times more durable than regular glass.

2. What is it doing on my phone?

  • In a possible drop of the phone, first press the tempered glass, which will break if it is large, and then press the glass of your screen.
  • Tempered glass is more resistant to heat than plain glass. This means that your phone is more likely to have a problem with the screen than extended sun exposure.
  • A simple protective film is easier to scratch than tempered glass
  • After a period of 3-4 months the simple film needs to be replaced as the plastic that is made is altered by the use of our finger. You do not change the tempered glass unless it breaks. This means that it broke instead of the normal screen of your cell phone.
  • The fact that it is glass gives you exactly the same feeling in the use that your phone has even if you were not tempered.
  • It is easier to install than a simple protective film.
  • Due to the oleophobic surface it is more difficult to keep fingers on
