Does a Screen Protector Affect the Touchscreen of My Phone?

Here at Perfect Fit Technologies, we provide customers with high quality Screen Shields and screen shield applicators for their smart devices including all makes and models of the iPhone.  A question we get asked on a regular basis is, "Does a screen protector affect the touchscreen of my phone?". Because this is such a common concern, we decided to answer it in a blog post: 

Does a Screen Protector Affect the Touchscreen of My Phone?

The answer isn’t a simple yes or no.  It all depends on the quality of your screen protector.  For example, the Perfect Fit Screen Shield with Perfect Fit Applicator is guaranteed not to affect the touch screen of your smart device. The bad news is that this isn't always the case.  Lower quality, cheap screen protectors can cause the proximity sensor not to work on your phone.  This means every time you make a phone call, your screen will black out immediately.  This issue is caused by extra thick screen protectors which, in turn, cause the sensors not to work on your smart device. 

Some people decide to get rubberized coatings on their smart devices instead of screen protectors such as the Perfect Fit Screen Shield. These coatings can affect the touch screen and can also cause a slight distortion to the HD picture on your phone as well.


We hope this blog post provided you with everything you need to know about how certain screen protectors can affect your phone's touch screen.  The best way to avoid this issue is to purchase a high quality screen shield such as the Perfect Fit Screen Shield with Perfect Fit Applicator.  We guarantee that our screen protectors won't affect the touch screen at all.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments or questions relating to this post or our products.  We look forward to hearing from you.
