Strongest screen protector guards display from getting hammered on and bombarded with steel (video)
Having the latest smartphone is a privilege but it could be a costly one. Especially if you are the careless type that would often drop a device. With such a huge display, it’s not hard at all to crack a screen going into costly and timely repairs, and one solution to that problem comes from Korea in the form of allegedly the strongest screen protector.

Demonstrated in a phone shop in Hong Kong, an iPad mini with that protector is getting hammered on and on and on, but nothing happens. No cracks, no dents. The screen remains perfectly intact.

Manufactured by “ARK” a Korean by AIMHIGH INTERNATIONAL company the protector really is extremely strong. It survived an iron bead dropping test and for disbelievers the protector is finally taken off the screen and the display shatters without it on first impact.

Right now the protector is offered in Asia for the iPhone 5, iPad, iPad mini, Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II for around $19 to $25.50.

That's really cool but I still wouldn't smash it o.O you don't know what's going on internally.

I'm sure that guy Adriansen will have a tough time dropping his hammer onto devices in the future

He'a hating it because the tablet used to demoed it was an iPad, i bet he would be praising it if it were an android tab. Just my guess, judging on how the people here has been behaving lately.

I Want to See the Demonstration again BUT, I want to See it be done with a STEEL FRAMING HAMMER ON A SOLID FIRM SURFACE.

The demonstration was with a Plastic Mallet and the iPad was on a Soft mat or pad or something other than a Solid Firm-Hard Surface.
The iPad took the shocks, but the soft mat or pad or whatever it was under it, also Helped to absorb the shock.

I Want to see them USE the PHONE in the Second Video instead of Just the Screen. Different Factors Produce Different Results.

In the First Video, they Use a Plastic Mallet on the iPad and in the Second Video, they Use JUST the Screen.

Why? Ask yourself and them, "WHY?!"

I Want to See them go from the Plastic Mallet on the iPad to a Steel Framing Hammer and then the Ball Bearing Drop Test with the Very Same iPad in Each Test back to back.
