While at IFA, I managed to drop my phone not once, but three times — face-down. This chipped the glass protector I was using to the point that I was worried I might cut myself on it, so I removed it. I’m trying something new now, the CrystalTech Nano 2.0 Liquid Screen Protector.
CrystalTech Nano touts its liquid screen protector as having these properties:
? 9H HARDNESS
? SCRATCH RESISTANT
? ANTIBACTERIAL PROTECTION
? ENHANCES TOUCHSCREEN
? WATER RESISTANT
? NO BUBBLES
? FOR PHONES & TABLETS
? ONE SIZE FITS ALL
? NANO TECHNOLOGY
? EASY TO APPLY
? PROTECTS FOR UP TO 1 YEAR
Included in the package are a microfiber wipe, instructions, and the two-step cleaner and nano technology materials in a packet.
CrystalTech Nano is a truly revolutionary product that contains pure, particle free, Silicon Dioxide – SiO2 – which means that it contains “pure glass”. The glass is in a molecular form and is held in a liquid. It doesn’t become “glass” until it’s allowed to dry. This forms the base of our proprietary formulation. The nano-coating contained in Crystaltech Nano not only protects the device from surface damage but also keep it hygienic as it contains an anti bacterial formula. In recent tests many devices were found to harbor various undesirable viruses and other illness causing microbes but a device coated in Crystaltech Nano helps stop these bugs bonding themselves to the surface and help maintain a positive tech-hygeine plan. Recent independent laboratory tests attest to more than 99.9% of bacteria being eliminated over time with the use of Crystaltech nano!
Application is pretty straightforward:
- Clean your device with the included isopropyl alcohol wipe
- Dry your device with the included microfiber cloth
- Apply the pre-treated swab in a circular motion over your device’s entire screen
- Wait 5 minutes
- Polish your device’s screen with the microfiber cloth
- Your device’s screen is ready for normal use after 60 seconds
- The coating will fully cure within 48 hours
There are no bubbles, my screen is crystal clear, and I was even able to use the wipes to do two phone screens. The packaging makes it clear that the kit can do a phone or a tablet, so I figured why not?
I’m not willing to take a box-cutter or other sharp object to my phone’s screen, so I will leave you with this video …
The CrystalTech Nano 2.0 liquid screen protector is a great solution for those of us who have issues getting a stick-on protector straight, or who hate the look or feel of a protector sitting on top of their phone or tablet’s screen. I haven’t yet dropped my iPhone face down since applying the CrystalTech Nano 2.0, but if I do and there are any issues, I’ll update this review at that time.
The CrystalTech Nano 2.0 Liquid Screen Protector retails for $19.99, and it is available directly from the manufacturer*.
