Gadget Guard, the premier maker of smartphone screen protection, announced the availability of the Black Ice Flex Edition, its best-in-class screen protector for next generation smart screens, including curved displays. The Black Ice Flex Edition screen is shatterproof because of its design and layered construction. It was developed for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+, and will soon be available for iPhones.
Constructed by integrating five distinct layers, each performing an essential function of protection for the smartphone, the Black Ice Flex Edition screen protector won’t chip or crack like traditional screen guards. The sturdy composite glass-like surface is specifically designed to accommodate advanced, curved screens.
According to research by a leading mobile phone provider, approximately 50 percent of users have broken their smartphone screen, and about 20 percent continue to use the cracked or broken device, even after sustaining an injury from it.
“Black Ice Flex Edition offers smartphone users the ultimate mobile phone screen protection,” said Brandon Bowen, Vice President of Sales of parent company Penumbra Brands. “With its composite construction engineered for both impact and scratch protection, Black Ice Flex Edition is, by leaps and bounds, the most durable protection a smartphone user can employ.”
Most screen protectors on the market today, especially traditional tempered glass, render ultrasonic fingerprint identifier technology unusable by making it impossible for the phone to ‘read’ the fingerprint. Some screen protectors avoid this issue by leaving a portion of the screen unprotected – and thus creating an Achilles heel on the smartphone. Tests conducted by Qualcomm proved The Black Ice Flex Edition design allows for rapid fingerprint recognition while covering the entire screen.
Additionally, it offers the most optically clear display, ensuring owners of smartphones like the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy S10+ have the best resolution for video applications.
Gadget Guard also offers its Black Ice+ insured version at $54.99, which includes screen device insurance, reimbursing customers for up to $150 to replace a screen damaged while protected by the Black Ice screen protector.
The Black Ice Flex Edition screen protector is now available for Samsung Galaxy S Series at GadgetGuard.com and through participating retailers.
