Previously in this blog I have written many articles regarding Gorilla Glass, Dragontrail Glass and also about the Tempered Glass Screen Protectors. Also I have made a detailed comparison between Gorilla glass and Dragontrail glass and how they are alike and differ from each other. But now due to the introduction of Tempered Glass Screen Protectors in the market and the confusion growing between gorilla glass and tempered glass screen protectors among many users, here I am making a clear comparison between these two.
Difference between Gorilla Glass & Tempered Glass Screen Protectors
Tempered Glass Screen Protectors

||Rs. 500 – Rs. 1000/- ($10 – $20) depending on the quality of glass screen protector.
*Note: Not all Tempered Glass Screen Protectors are of same quality, so for good protection and results always buy the expensive ones and avoid the cheaper ones.
Which is Stronger?
Corning’s Gorilla Glass is definitely stronger than any Tempered Glass Screen Protector. It must be noted that Tempered Glass Screen Protector is just a strong protective sheet made up of glass like material that is used to protect your smartphone screen from scratches and drops. Some people also put the Tempered Glass Screen Protector on their Gorilla Glass Smartphone for giving their display screen additional protection and strength. So I think now I have made a pretty clear comparison between Gorilla Glass and Tempered Glass Screen Protector to clear everyone’s doubt on this topic.
