Do screen protectors for tablets prevent damage due to water contact? I have an Ostriva scratch guard protector.
Please tell meaning of water resistant screen protector. And are screens of tabs lesser susceptible to water damage with screen guard than without screen guard?
A screen protector does as its name applies - protects the screen. It covers only the glass and as glass is waterproof dosnt need to help protect against water.
well the screen protector protects the screen only and not entire device, water still can infiltrate the device from non protected surface.
No, all they do is to protect the glass against scratches. Since water will not enter the tablet through the glass, they don't help in that regard.
are screens of tabs lesser susceptible to water damage with screen guard than without screen guard?
Water does not enter devices through the screens! It enters through holes and gaps elsewhere on the device.
I tend to say no? The screen protector usually goes just over the screen which is already 'sealed' and leaves the same gaps e.g. microphone and speakers. So they don't really change anything in terms of water resistance.
Thanks. Then , 1 ) How do water-resistant screen-guards help? , 2) Do the gaps provide access to water damage of even main board? 3) Is there a way to protect water entering inside of device ( mention for tab and phone ) esp during rains
(1) I am not aware of any "water-resistant screen guards".
(2) Of course they do. Any opening, be it for speakers, microphone, buttons or any other gap allows water to enter the device and damage it.
(3) You can only really protect the device using a full water proof casing or bag and even then only if it isn't malfunctioning. Example: http://www.lifeproof.com/en/
Using common sense you should not need water protection just because it is raining. Just don't play games or read Facebook etc. with the device exposed to the rain.
