So I’ve spent the last few months using several liquid screen protectors and here’s the bottom line: Liquid screen protectors are not a complete replacement for traditional screen protectors. With all that being said, liquid screen protectors are pretty cool. I’ve come to this conclusion after using three different brands of liquid screen protectors on a variety of devices. The questions I personally had about liquid screen protectors and will answer in this video include: 00:01:36 - What are liquid screen protectors exactly? 00:02:58 - Can you really re-add the oleophobic coating back to your device? 00:06:12 - Does it add to the scratch resistance of the device? 00:08:05 - Will it fill in cracks? 00:09:26 - Does it really make the screen tougher? 00:11:07 - Can you use it with other screen protectors? 00:11:30 - How well does it work with a waterproof case? And after I go through all that, I’ll tell you whether or not I would actually recommend using a liquid screen protector (00:11:44). Like what I do? Help me out by getting your stuff through my Amazon links! Doesn't have to be what I link to, you just need to use my link! See how much liquid screen protectors are on Amazon!

How do they work?** Liquid screen protectors start off as liquid glass. The base compound that’s used in every liquid screen protector that I’ve come across is Silicone Dioxide. Every product I used had the liquid screen protector in a wipe form and takes a couple of days to dry completely. **Can you really re-add the oleophobic coating back to your device?** I stripped 1/2 my iPhone X with a Magic Eraser and added a liquid screen protector to that stripped side. I performed a water droplet test on both sides of the iPhone and the side with the stock coating out performed the liquid screen protector side. The only thing I noticed throughout this process is that the screens on my older devices definitely felt smoother. **Does it add to the scratch resistance of the device?** It does but unlike regular screen protectors, you can't take it off after it gets damaged. The damage is going to look permanent which isn't great. **Will it fill in cracks or scratches?** I was really hoping that it would. It doesn’t. I applied a liquid screen protector to a cracked screen protector to see if it would fill in the cracks and it didn't. For scratches, I wiped my beat up Apple Watch Series 3 with a liquid screen protector and the giant gash across the front of the device didn’t look any better. Or worse. **Does it really make the screen tougher?** In short, yes it does. I took three identical screen protectors and applied a liquid screen protector to one of them. I used the first two screen protectors to determine what height they would break by dropping a 200g ball on them. It was between 9-10 inches. The screen protector with the liquid screen protector applied broke at 16 inches! **Can you use it with a screen protector on top?** Yes you can! Since it’s just glass on top of your smartphone screen, there’s no reason why you can’t add another layer of glass on your screen. Or plastic, depending on what type of protection your are looking for. **Can you use it with a waterproof case?** This is the only type of screen protector that would work well in any waterproof case since it doesn’t add any thickness to the device. From my perspective, it’s going to work with any waterproof case out there. **So would I actually recommend using a liquid screen protector?** In short? Not by itself on a smartphone. I think it's a good accessory if you're REALLY paranoid about your screen breaking and you use it with other accessories. Our smartphones go through a lot of wear and tear so the tiny bit of protection the product will offer won't be enough. However, I'm not as against using liquid screen protectors on tablets. The screen on my iPad feels like new and since I don't take my iPad much, having the tiny bit of extra protection isn't a bad thing. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to stay in the loop!

Flying saucers, hyper-drive technology, instant orgasm pills; there are many technologies which conspiracy theorists claim exist behind a shroud of government or corporate secrecy, except the last one, that's something I just want to exist. Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com Humans have enjoyed running over squirrels and doing drive by's in autonomous motor vehicles for more than a Century now, and we've had electricity for even longer, but it's only in the last few years we've seen these two things come together in a commercially viable manner, with the release of vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf and Elon Musk's Tesla Model S. The dangers of smoking have been known by cigarette companies for decades now, but at first, this information was withheld from the public or downplayed in seriousness in order to protect their profits. Strange Mysteries knows its audience, and we're well aware that a good portion of the folks watching us are baked like a potato right now, so let's take that doobie out of your mouth and examine it, to find out why people might want to prevent the use of cannabis and hemp based products so fiercely. TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, and not totally excellent nipple stimulator, as I personally hoped. In the days before mobile phones and digital cameras made sweet sweet love to form the smartphone, humans were forced to use film cameras to take their selfies and wiener shots, and these had to be processed down at the chemist, the photo store or your creepy uncle's darkroom. As the world seeks to free itself from the bondage of fossil fuel reliance, many different energy sources have been explored, have failed, and have been consigned to the realms of science fiction history. The most controversial entry on this list is undoubtedly this one; the possible suppression of free energy technology developed by Nikola Tesla over a hundred years ago.
Good news everything is working well and I haven't noticed any of the coating wearing off. Again I applied about 7 layers over the course of a week, letting it sit overnight everytime. I recently sold my Mi Mix 2s and started using my honor 8 again. Right away I could tell that something wasn't right about the screen, it was collecting fingerprints way to fast!! I couldn't find many options to solve my problem. This was the only thing available on amazon, time to buy and test it out!!

Will the Apple Watch save lives? I’m an academic cardiologist & this is an in-depth, unbiased look at the science & implications of the exciting new ECG heart monitor function. I’m a tech fan, an advocate for people to take an interest in their health, and a practicing heart doctor, so this is big news for me. But amongst all the glowing media coverage, I wanted to explain the considerable implications of something like this. I analyse the science, the statistics, the medicine and what it may mean for you, if you buy an Apple Watch. Edit: And yes, I know it's not called an iWatch, tbh I shot this in a hurry at work and didn't even realise I had said iWatch until later. I mostly use the term to wind up my Apple fanboi buddy Simon. Judging by some of the comments, it winds up more people than just Simon.

I like Spigen cases. Their Reventon is one of my favourite cases. BUT how about their screen protectors. Specifically the Nano Liquid? This product in general is a great addition to a smartphone setup that includes a case and an existing screen protector. I personally don’t think liquid screen protectors have enough features to warrant being used on their own.
If you want to know exactly why I think this, check out my extremely detailed video regarding liquid screen protectors. I’ve used a variety of different liquid screen protectors for that video including the Whoos! Diamond Defense and CrystalTech Nano 2.0.

Specifically for the Spigen Glastr Nano Liquid, my focus with this product was the re-adding of the Oleophobic coating and scratch resistance the product offered my iPhone. After I show you the results of the tests, I’ll tell you how I would personally use a liquid screen protector.
From my understanding, every liquid screen protector is generally the same. It’s made from Silicone Dioxide or SiO2. It’s liquid glass. You’re basically adding a thin layer of glass to your existing glass. The Spigen product is made in America which might be important for some. TARIFFS!
Every liquid screen protector I used was installed in the same manner. Clean your screen and then use a wet wipe to slather the liquid screen protector all over the screen of the device that you want to use. For my oleophobic test, I used an iPhone X which had 1/2 of the device stripped down to the glass with a magic eraser and an 5 year old iPad.
I did water droplet tests on both devices prior to adding the liquid screen protector to see how poorly the oleophobic coatings worked. I then installed the screen protector, waited 48 hours for the product to fully cure and tried the water droplet tests again. Thee wasn’t much of a difference between the two which was disappointing.
My fingerprint tests didn’t fare any better which was disappointing as well. Now one might think that nothing was actually applied to the screen but the screen on my old iPad felt like new. These liquid screen protectors technically smooth over older screens, filling in the gaps where the previous coating has been worn down so having my iPad screen feel new again was a pleasant surprise.
When it comes to scratch resistance, technically the Nano Liquid screen protector does improve the scratch protection it offers your device. The Nano glass is of 9H hardness which is cool. As I mentioned above, you’re basically adding a thin layer of glass to your device which will improve the scratch resistance BUT unlike traditional screen protectors, you can’t remove it after it gets damaged. So it looks like your screen is permanently damaged or technically is permanently damaged depending on how you look at it. The normal round of rocks, keys and knives didn’t leave a mark. The only thing that would scratch the product was sandpaper which was expected.
Now you might be wondering how tough this extra layer of glass which is a test I did on a different brand of liquid screen protector. Check out the detailed video for all the details.
So where does a liquid screen protector fit with my smartphone setup? Sure it doesn’t seem to add much in terms of scratch and oleophobic protection but it does add a bit of impact protection. So I would put it on my screen as well as my screen protector. The sensitivity of the device isn’t going to be impacted by the product. With that setup, you’re going to have above average protection for your smartphone.
One of the benefits of the liquid screen protectors is that after you use on one device, you can use it on another. I was able to get four uses out of a liquid screen protector with the last application being used in the impact protection I was talking about earlier.
If you want to know what I think about using liquid screen protectors on other devices such as tablets and smart watches, check out the last few minutes of the detailed video where I cover those devices.
