Rhino Shield is tougher than a Gorilla


The Gorilla Glass screens on iPhones are tough, but they aren’t invincible, so many people like to add a layer of protection to the screens.  Many screen protectors are designed to protect more against scratching than impacts, but the Rhino Shield MK2 has a “shock-damping layer is able to take at least 5 times the impact energy of Gorilla Glass 2 on its own thanks to the unique polymer technology”.  The shield is highly transparent and only  0.011″ thick, and it has a 3H hardness rating, which means it will also protect against scratches.  It has an oleophobic coating and a silky smooth surface for easy on-screen sliding, touching, and tapping.  The Rhino Shield MK2  is available in the US exclusively through BiteMyApple for $24.99 for the front screen of iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5/5S/5C; you can cover both the back and front of the iPhone 4/4S for $29.99.

  2. Most of the broken screens I see, the crack starts from the corner and shatter from that corner. A “screen protector” only protects impact damage on the screen from the front, not the shock from a corner, where most of the damage happens. Unless they place a shock absorbent band between the frame & the edge of the glass all the way around it, a “screen protector” won’t help for corner impact damage, but if might help if you constantly take a hammer to the front of the screen 😉
