Installation of this screen protector for me was pretty standard. I had no issues lining it up, cleaning off or applying the shield on the OPO. You get the essentials for a nice clean installation. However, I have grown to appreciate companies that include an alcohol prep pad because in my experience it has become the best way to clean the screen off. Rhino only includes a wipe cloth, which is fine as long as you are careful to inspect the screen ensuring there is not any dust hiding.
Upon holding the protector in your hands you will appreciate the rubbery flex of the material. This is because you know it’s not some cheap eBay special grade of a screen protector. Trust me you can tell the difference. Once applied the shield does indeed feels nice to the touch, is easy to clean off and doesn’t leave much residue behind from fingers. Everything is responsive and works great. Overall, I can’t tell too much that it’s even there.
Evolution Labs claims that this Rhino Shield is shatterproof, can withstand shock and is scratch resistant. Personally, I am not brave enough to slam a hammer or do a drop test and I cannot afford to break a device. With that said click HERE for demo videos they have professionally created for you to watch. However, I don’t mind doing some scratch tests.
While I was conducting the review I grabbed the closest thing to me that could potentially scratch the surface and a flat head screwdriver was within reach. Unfortunately, the screw driver won this battle. It scratched some shaving off of the Rhino Shield easily. Next, I took my keys to the screen protector and it did it’s job against the keys. Key are more of a real world scenario because who is really going to take a screwdriver to the screen? For everyday use this screen protector should protect against common enemies. I did pull the screen protector off and there was no damage to the phone’s screen at all, which is what it is supposed to do. Protector the screen, right?
Once that damage was done I took the screen protector off to see what else I could do to test the durability. I bent it in half and from doing so you can really see how the material is durable because of the rubbery flexibility. For the heck of it I tried to tear it in half with my hands, but I could not seem to get it to tear. Lastly, I cut it in half with some scissors and of course it went right through, but not so easily. I had to place a decent amount of pressure to slice through.
Overall, I think this screen protector is a value for the money. You won’t be disappointed in the protection as long as you keep screwdrivers away from it. It feels nice to the touch and applies nicely.
