After a lot of research and a bit of coaxing, I made the plunge and went for a Samsung Galaxy S4 for half the price. I haven't looked back.
One of the things I was a little worried about was my shiny new screen. I've seen enough smashed phone screeens on my daily commute to know that this is a road I don't want to go down. They look so sad and forlorn with their spidery jagged lines cobwebbing across the front. My sister told me that a screen protector was a must, so I decided to try the toughest in the business: Rhinoshield impatc protection*.
The screen protector was surprisingly easy to apply, with no bubbles or trapped dust. Safe to say it does exactly what it says on the tin. Getting used to my shiny and much larger new phone inevitably means it's had a few tumbles on the hard pavement. That sinking feeling when you reach down and prepare to see a large crack snaking across the screen has all but gone. This screen protector means business.
The Rhinoshield screen protector is available on their website.
