Though it may not be as brittle as a robin's egg, you should probably protect your Robin's screen.
All day long you're swiping and tapping on your Nextbit Robin's screen and dirt and dust on your fingers can cause little imperfections. If you keep your phone in your pocket, your change or keys can slice and dice your screen as well, even if it's scratch-resistant (eventually, they all get dinged up a little).
For now, Nextbit Robin screen protectors are kind of hard to come by, which is why we've rounded up some of the best ones we've found.
- Nextbit tempered glass
- Casebase tempered glass
- Orzly tempered glass
- Skinomi Tech Skin
- IQ Shield LiQuidSkin
Nextbit tempered glass
If you're the brand-conscious sort, you could get your screen protector straight from the horse's mouth (or robin's beak, as it were). At $25, Nextbit's tempered glass screen protector is a little expensive, but it gets the job done, covering up the most important part of your Robin.
The protector only covers the screen, so the glass edges surrounding it are left open, which might be a turn-off for some folks, but pair it with a Bruises case and you'll be good to go.
Nextbit's screen protectors are extremely thin, so it'll seem like your phone's wearing nothin' at all. Tempered glass is four times stronger than regular glass, so your Robin will be nigh-bulletproof (helpful for when it's out with Batman, i.e. you and your bad self).
Casebase tempered glass
Casebase offers a two-pack of tempered glass screen protectors, which, starting around $13, isn't a bad deal. These screen protectors have an oleophobic coating, meaning they'll repel the oils from your hands and other sources, keeping your screen free of smudges and fingerprints.
The ultra slim design maintains screen sensitivity, so you won't be having to tap apps twice or go back over your keyboard because you missed a few letters.
This Casebase screen protector comes with all of the necessary tools to make installation a breeze, and having the second protector is a godsend, just in case you screw up.
Orzly tempered glass
Orzly are all over accessories for the Nextbit Robin and their tempered glass screen protector is no slouch when it comes to keeping your screen scratch-free.
This tempered glass screen protector is four times harder than regular glass and shatterproof, so if it breaks, you phone's screen won't. It's also got rounded edges to prevent any chipping.
At only 0.24 millimeters thick (or thin), all of your screen sensitivity is maintained and high definition shines through as though your screen is bare.
Skinomi Tech Skin
Skinomi's entry is made of soft TPU with a fascination ability: it's self-healing. This means that any little imperfections will eventually be smoothed out by heat and moisture. This is also UV-resistant TPU, so it won't turn yellow over time, which means you might only need one for the whole time you have your phone.
This one comes with a liquid solution that allows for adjustments during installation, so if you don't nail it the first time, you can still move it around and get it just right. Once it's on, it conforms well to the size of your screen, giving you total, top-to-bottom protection.
All Skinomi screen protectors come with a lifetime replacement warranty, so if anything goes wrong, you just ring them up and they'll send you a new one for free.
IQ Shield LiQuidSkin
What separates IQ's LiQuidSkin from other screen protectors is that it's a single-layer film, which means ultimate clarity and sensitivity, so it's like your phone is naked but protected.
This is another TPU protector that's UV-resistant, so there's no worry of it yellowing as time goes by, leaving your Robin's screen completely clear. Installation is particularly simple with the LiQuidSkin, thanks to IQ Shield's own adhesive and their wet-install method, which allows you to make adjustments before your protector is in place forever.
Like all the other screen protectors in our round-up, this one only covers the screen, so the rest of the glass on the front is bare. If you're looking for total protection, then you probably want to pair your Robin with a case.
IQ Shield screen protectors are backed by a lifetime warranty and a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee, so if yours doesn't work, you can get a new one for free. If it isn't as promised, you can send it back for a refund.
