The “perfect fit” for the Samsung Galaxy S7… how do we go about achieving this goal and what does it even mean? Back in the days of the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S5, developing a screen protector that fits the device “perfectly” was a relatively easy task. The flat-glass screens offered a two-dimensional problem that was easy to solve: simply define the edges (height and width) and provide precise cuts for all camera and speaker holes. Done!
Now the game has changed with recent device launches as manufacturers have embraced the curved screen. Our once simple problem has expanded to include a 3rd, curved dimension! In order to provide a low-cost solution using flat glass or film, we MUST now account for this curve to avoid installation issues.
With the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7, we’ve received some complaints from loyal Tech Armor fans who claim our HD Clear and Ballistic Glass screen protectors were improperly cut and thus do not fit. At first glance, their imagery seems to lend validity to that assumption, however our product was deliberately designed to avoid the increased curve of the new S7 screen.
Look at the comparison below… On the LEFT, you can see how the glass rests on the flat areas of the glass- providing a perfect seal to protect the flat areas of the screen. On the RIGHT, we’ve created this image to illustrate what would happen if we extended our screen to “perfectly fit” the device.
The flat shape of our screen protectors would create a gap between the device and allow air, dirt and debris to creep under. Every time you pulled the device out of your pocket or purse, the potential for peeling would drastically increase!
At Tech Armor, we pride ourselves on seamless installation with a bubble-free guarantee and we take great care in the design of our products to ensure this promise. While the competition scrambles to redesign their glass and film options (we’ve heard rumors of some manufacturers recalling product), we’re standing by our designs to avoid the curve.
Check out this video demonstration below for a live look at how our Ballistic Glass (at 60mm width) provides seamless coverage vs. a Zagg screen protector (at 64mm) which produces the less-desirable halo effect.
That being said, what about those customers who are willing to pay a little bit more for a COMPLETE edge-to-edge solution? Tech Armor recognizes that a flat glass or film solution offers the lowest possible price, but some customers are willing to invest more… we have not ignored this demand!
