their cell phone in the pocket together with wallets, cards and even
keys or coins, the latter could easily damage your phone’s screen. This
will cause minor and even deep scratches to the cell phone screen,
eventually, they need to replace the display or the mobile device.
Here we’ll tell you how to protect your cell phone screen from scratches.

glassmaker Corning. Gorilla features thin, light and damage resistance,
and now many phone has Gorilla glass. With this terrific screen, you
won’t have to worry about any scratches.

protector at the same time. It won’t cost you much, but it does a really
good job. When it comes to the price, it ranges between some $1 and $3,
and some only cost you less than $1. You do not have to worry about how
to remove the scratches later if you use a screen protector.
