What is the best way to protect a tablet screen?

 A tablet, like many other smart devices, have sensitive screens. This is due to the fact they are usually made from glass. Glass is the most optimal conduit to allow for touchscreen capabilities. Unfortunately glass is quite brittle, it is difficult to reinforce the glass without compromising the sensitivity of the touchscreen. The best solution for this is to consider buying a screen protector in addition to a case for your tablet.

The case will help to reduce any damage from falls or impact, depending on the material and thickness of the case. Screen protectors come in two forms. A thin, plastic-like layer which prevents scratches, and a reinforced screen protector which is much thicker, but will generally take the impact before your actual touchscreen. This means the screen protector will be cracked and damaged, whilst the screen beneath it is completely fine.

Protecting a screen without a case or screen protector

We understand that not all of our readers have the disposable income to buy protective accessories for their hard-earned device. So with that in mind, here are some helpful tips you can use if you can’t get a screen protector or case just yet.

Store the device away from everything

Place your device in a space where you know nobody can reach it, there is nothing surrounding it that can damage it, and it is secure in its placement, meaning it won’t slip out or fall.

Use the device at certain times

To have a level of control over any possible damages, it is best to use the device when you’re seated, preferably in a room with soft floors. Using the device whilst standing or walking doesn’t mean you’ll drop it, but it does mean the damages will be worse.

Avoid water

As you may be aware, water can affect the internal workings of most electronic devices, you should try your best to avoid moisture when handling your device. In particular, direct moisture should be avoided in any areas that can be plugged, such as the charging or headphone slot.

Be responsible

Be mindful of whom you let use the device, if they are a child, or have little to no understanding of being gentle with electronics, it is best to keep it away from them.
