The tablet screen protector is a decent and generally inexpensive way to protect the touchscreen. Sometimes known as “shields”, these accessories are designed for those users frequently on-the-go and/or may be using their tablet outdoors.
Tablet screen protectors defend the device from scratching, smearing and outside elements. Designed to be employed while the tablet is in use, these products are of necessity made of thin, transparent material. Screen protectors for tablets should also serve a secondary function in reducing glare from strong sunlight and interior light sources. Screen protectors designed for specific tablets are cut to allow access to ports and/or toggle controls, and can be used in tandem with any tablet case or bag.
While a decent solution for defending the touchscreen in everyday use, it is important to note that screen protectors offer no greater protection to any of the device beyond this – further accessories will be needed.
