Tuffshield iPhone 4 Screen Protection Film Review

Today I am checking out the XtremeMac Tuffshield for iPhone 4 screen protection film. The Tuffshield I am looking at here is glossy and will protect the front and back of your iPhone 4. If you need a new screen protection film to keep the scratches away and want to protect the glass back as well the Tuffshield might be for you.

 

Specifications

The clear Tuffshield material is crystal clear and sticks to the iPhone with static adhesion. You need no water to apply the film and it can be remove and reposition. The kit sells for $14.99 and includes a back protection film as well. I reviewed this film for the iPad previously.

In Use

When it comes to keeping my iPhone neat and in working order the first thing I do before I even put the smartphone in a case is add screen protection film to keep scratches away. Few things irritate me as much as a screen with scratches on it. The Tuffshield film is very easy to apply and is made from a clear material. Unlike other scratch films, you don’t need liquid to apply the Tuffshield film to your smartphone.

I also like that if you don’t get the Tuffshield installed just right on the screen of your iPhone you can peel it off and reapply the film easily. That is a big deal if you are like me and rarely get the film as straight as you like it the first time around. The film leaves the home button uncovered and leaves all the sensors and openings on the smartphone usable.

The back film is made of the same material as the front film is and applied the same way. It has cutouts for the camera lens so you can still take photos. The $15 kit comes with a single back films and a pair of the front films. The films will eventually peel away; this isn’t a permanent solution like invisibleSHIELD products. The big downside to this film for me is that the static cling doesn't have enough adhesion to get all the air bubbles out from under the screen.

On my iPhone, the film was constantly peeling away from some areas leaving bubbles on the screen that really bothered me. You could minimize that issue with care in installing the films. The Tuffshield kit also includes a cleaning cloth to clean the film once installed. The film will fit both the Verizon and AT&T iPhones without any issues. The Tuffshield film also comes in matte finish if you want less glare than the glossy films has. XtremeMac still lists the film as shipping soon.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Cheap
  • Protects from scratches well

Cons

  • Bubbles are bothersome
 

Conclusion

The Tuffshield is a very nice product if you can keep all the bubbles out you can hardly tell it is installed on your iPhone.
