The other day I received some long awaited Screen protectors from a small company called ScreenProof. They are a relatively new kid on the block with regard to screen protection and having used the camera protector on my Lumia 1020 I thought it would be worth trying them out on my Lumia 1520 and my Nexus 7 (2013) at a cost of £5.25 for the Lumia 1520.
The protectors themselves come in simple packaging of an envelope with the piece of paper pictured below with the screen protectors taped onto the back. On the paper is the instructions on how to apply the protectors. It also includes a link to the video attached at the end of this review. This very useful too watch as it will help you to get a good application.
Those of you who have used any of the high end style of screen protection such as Invisi-shield will be familiar with the process. Screenproof are obviously trying to keep costs down as they don’t provide either a lint free cloth or any application solution (Water mixed with washing up liquid) but it does mention to make up your own mix and use that to help with the application process.
I am not going to bore you with the application of the protector as it is fairly straightforward and the sheets do indeed cover the whole screen.
One thing that does need to be done is to wait for at least 1 hour before handling the device again, to allow the adhesive to set. I would therefore recommend that this is something done before you head of to bed so you are not tempted to use the device during the curing time.
So, I applied the screen protector to my Nexus 7 and the allover cover to my Lumia 1520 and the results are pictured below.
So, I think the screen protectors are pretty good after the week that I have had them on now. The back cover for the Lumia did take a little coercion to get it to stick as it was going around the curved edges but overall I am happy with result.
There is not any noticeable degradation of touch sensitivity on either device and they don’t seem to attract large amounts of dust (unlike some others I have used in the past). I also found that the plastics used do not have any stickiness that is common to these products, sometimes called the orange peel effect.
In summary, if you are looking for a cheap screen protector and an all-body cover then check out Screenproof as they are great products at great prices, and I am one happily protected phone user.
