Who has never been tempted to add a protective film to the screen of their smartphone to ensure maximum protection against damage? Still, this is a very bad idea when it comes to foldable smartphones. This is according to Bruce, the CTO of Huawei, who explains that the latter are already delivered with a protective film adapted to their needs.
The more time passes, the more foldable smartphones invade the market. After the successful trials of Samsung and Xiaomi, to name a few, the competition is rushing to rush into the breach, as shown by the efforts of Google or even OnePlus, which should soon unveil their own model. . Also, many users should be tempted by the technology in the years to come, thus resuming their old habits on the new device.
But one of them turns out to be particularly counter-productive: protective films. Indeed, it is not uncommon to add one of these films to your smartphone to ensure that it is well protected against scratches and other damage. Naturally, some users have therefore started to add them to their folding smartphone. However, this is a very bad idea. And Huawei says so.
Never add a protective film to your foldable smartphone, it is very dangerous
More specifically, it was Bruce Lee, CTO of the Chinese firm, who recently spoke on the subject. The latter thus explained that foldable smartphones are systematically delivered with a protective film already placed on their screen. This is no coincidence: each of its films is unique to the smartphone model, in order to best adapt in terms of thickness, material and other characteristics necessary for optimal protection of the screen.

Also, adding a second protective film can be dangerous, because the balance provided by the first will be broken. The life of the screen will then be reduced, in addition to potentially preventing you from taking advantage of the breakage guarantee. In the same way, Bruce Lee calls on users never to remove the protective film present on their smartphone to replace it with another.
