So, over the choice of screen protection. Since the left and right edges of the glass on XZ1 Compact has a rounding, you can not just take and paste any protective glass, as it was possible on the flat screens in the good old days.
The market offers several new solutions for curved screens, but they are not perfect.In short: to recommend only one option -glass "SkyTech"- it is the best. Still there Brosco - very expensive and fragile.
Here are all the typical options:
1) 3D-glass (Chinese, anonymous) Detailed reviewThe most popular and the worst (!)
glass on Aliexpress. Curved, and closes the screen completely. Kleetsya to "glue frame", leaving between the screen and the glass air space. These windows are transparent and colored. No one knows who produces it, but come from all the shops are always in big white styrofoam box wrapped with yellow tape, unprinted.
- Covers the entire screen, it is easy to paste protects against bumps.
- air gap creates an additional 2 "extra" reflecting-refracting surface (the lower surface of the glass, and the surface of the screen), why not turn off the screen looks black, that is, the light appears lighter black,edakii gray
(many more photos
). Especially bad it looks on a background of black painted frame as if the matrix is вЂ‹вЂ‹not black, but gray, like the cheapest low-end phones.
- For the same reason, the color rendering suffers - a deep black color can be seen only in complete darkness.
- If the glass is colored, the awful "clumsy" looks "cloudy window" for the SONY logo (rate
). Because if you take, it's best to clear glass.
- Around the cutouts for the camera, speakers, sensors make a "glue frame" not guessed, because through these holes under the glass (and right on the screen) will get junk, water, dust.
2) Polnoprikleivayuscheesya 3D-glass "SkyTech", in the frame of carbon fiber Detailed reviewThe only glass that I recommend !!! there iseverything four colors
. This is the best of all the glass found so far. Even better than dorogushchy Brosco, because it looks almost the same, but much more durable. It is durable because of its carbon fiber frame - flexible.
- Premium look.
- is pasted across the glass surface (deep black color of the screen).
- Closes the screen completely.
- Protects against shocks.
- Durable! (Flexible edges)
- The price of 290 rubles!
- oleophobic coating medium quality.
- Frame covers at 0.5 mm at the edges of the screen, but this is not essential (see.overview
- No window for the SONY logo, although I think the absence of the window rather a plus.
3) Polnoprikleivayuscheesya 3D-glass Brosco Detailed reviewBeautiful, but very expensive andtoo fragile.
Unlike unnamed 3D-glass, instead of the air layer - a layer of silicone in which the glass adheres to the entire surface of the screen.
- Premium look. All the advantages which are only at best flat glass-and 3D-glasses. Read the review.
- Price (currently 1290 rubles).
- very fragile
If your case does not protect the edge of the glass rigid bumpers, the more likely it razobotsya at the first fall ( see photo
) (Proof: time
- Frame covers at 0.5 mm at the edges of the screen, but I think itnonsense
- No window for the SONY logo, but I think it is rather a plus.
4) Flat glass Nillkin Amazing H + Pro
Nillkin unexpectedly disappointed with his glass for XZ1C - it is done much already on the edges, because of the curved screen edges, that is, the screen closesnot fully
- Everyone knows the quality Nillkin glasses - excellent oleophobic coating, ideal black color of the screen, strong enough, etc.
- Transparent (visible SONY logo).
- Do not close the curved edge of the screen.The width of the display window ALREADY width. The edges of the image on the screen a little "stick out" from under the glass.
See photos of how it looks with the included screen
And How turned off
5) The hydrogel film Imak
Glued to the wet screen. Edakii thin layer of smooth soft transparent silicone.
- In Olic from ordinary films when glueing can make several attempts, provided that the screen is wet. That is, it is possible to suffer, and glue perfectly.
- air bubbles are really completely resolve within a few hours.
- Very thin and almost invisible! It looks at the very beginning, even perfectly well. How is slightly matte plating on the screen, rather than as something glued on top.
- Does not protect against impacts as conventional film.
- It will only last for 2 weeks. Very soft, so there are dents, even from depression fingernail. Because after a while, from minor injuries, loses its form. Yet I only have 2 weeks of using polished "bright spot" in the place of the film where I often drove his finger.
6) Plain film
Everyone knows these films.
- I do not know. It may be that the film is hardly noticeable, if unable to paste it without the bubbles.
- Does not protect against shocks.
- It is almost impossible to paste dry film without bubbles, because knowledgeable people recommend to glue onto the wet screen (just like a hydrogel film).
- Cheap film (the link above) was dense and hard, like all films, because behind the screen edges, but on the idea of вЂ‹вЂ‹the producer, had to repeat the bends on the edges of the screen. But no, she straightened at the edges, and began to collect under a dust. Maybe with expensive films that will not happen, I do not know, I did not try.Post has been editedSLA8 - 13.04.18, 01:41
