earlier plastic protector film sheets were from Korea 3M and AGF PureMate (defunct 15.12), mostly to cover laptops or notebooks and digital camera LCD viewing screens . there-after SpiGen SGP joined in popularity with thick wrap-around sheets to cover all sides of earlier bar-type and sliding cell-phones . then they made durable film sheets as full-screen smart-phones came to dominate and Tesla and Co (defunct 15.12) rose to stardom just last year . all of the fore-mentioned also offer stick-on applying service for FREE, and even considerable discount on second sheets should you make a mess on first trial -_-
here, I would like to introduce the under-dogs . slightly cheaper alternatives, each with specialized accent to the current Korean LCD screen protection film sheet cover market . they are about 75% to half price of their larger competitors above, and futile to mention price here, for they give considerable discount to mobile user-groups who purchase in bulk . they can be largely divided into bullet-proof glass-type and plastic sheets .
pro’s of glass-types is that it is incredibly hard BUT is almost as hard to take off later – even CAUTION : break ! AND you should make sure NO dust is in between when applying . the pro’s of plastic film sheets is that you can remove each speckle of dust simply with another adhesive tape one-by-one, while holding the film up for a while . BOTH types today will naturally extrude air bubbles formed within, in a few hours to days – ever amazed, witnessing plastics and glass that breathe, alike small pots for succulent plants, which need to more than others .
