Will Rhino Shield Screen Protectors Make the iPhone Devices Indestructible?

/ 8 years ago


Corning Gorilla Glass protects iPhone displays from scratches, but when it comes to dropping the iPhone or impacts with the device’s screen, cracks will appear. Two students from the Cambridge University however have developed a screen protector that grant the iPhone full protection against these problems.

Rex Rhino Shield offers 5 times more protection than Gorilla Glass, according to the manufacturers. The screen protector is however only available for the iPhone 5 or higher.

Having only 0.028 cm thickness, it is made of a special polymer alloy that absorbs the kinetic energy from impacts, thus preventing the Kinetic force from hitting the display and creating the common cracks that people are facing when accidentally dropping their iPhone.

Below are some tests performed on this amazing screen protector, and from the looks of it, it really does its job pretty well:


When talking about the price, the Rhino Shield can be bought at only £17.99 and iPhone customers looking for this extra protection can buy it from here.
