Should you get Whoosh! Diamond Defense for your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch? Find out in our Whoosh! Diamond Defense Review!
In short, I’d get Whoosh Diamond Defense if I wanted the maximum amount of protection for my device, on top of a case and a normal screen protector. Liquid screen protectors aren’t a stand alone product when it comes to screen protection.
Honestly, the only upside is the fact that you can add tiny extra bit of protection to all your devices by slathering Whoosh Diamond Defense across everything.

At Mobile Reviews Eh, Monty and I base all our reviews on actual usage. This video isn’t sponsored by Whoosh so that means I get to tell you the truth! One of the things I wanted to find out with this product is whether or not it can fill in cracks or scratches.
From my understanding, every liquid screen protector is generally the same. It’s made from Silicone Dioxide or SiO2. It’s liquid glass. You’re basically adding a thin layer of glass to your existing glass.
Installation of the Diamond Defense is quite simple. First you clean your device by rubbing it down with an alcohol wipe. Then you apply the screen protector by using the wet wipe found in the package called Nano liquid. Once you’ve covered your device with the fluid from the wet wipe, you wait a few minutes for it to dry and then buff your screen with the included microfibre cloth. You can do this as many times as you want. The wet wipe installation is why they say it fits ALL smart phones. According to Whoosh, their product doesn’t result in bubbles either. This might have been a big deal a few years ago but the adhesives on modern screen protectors are quite good at being bubble free.
Now Whoosh doesn’t tell you this but liquid screen protectors will take between 24-48 hours to fully cure.
Now the footage that you’re seeing right now is my attempt at trying to see if a liquid screen protector would lessen the cracks this iPhone X incurred. I couldn’t see a noticeable difference after the screen protector was applied. I believe at this moment of capturing this video clip, I was thinking Whoosh could have given me an actual wet wipe and I wouldn’t know any difference.
How about scratches? Here’s my Apple Watch Series 3 after applying the Diamond Defense and the giant gash across the front is still quite giant.
Now one of the selling features of the Diamond Defense is it’s claim that it provides superior scratch resistance. Now logically, if the wet wipe did come with liquid glass, I am technically adding another layer of glass to my device which would be extra scratch protection.
BUT here’s the thing. Diamond Defense basically fuses with the existing glass. You can’t take it off. So if you manage to scratch that thin layer of glass, it’s going to look like you’ve permanently damaged your smartphone’s screen.
Which is probably why Whoosh! has a disclaimer on the back that claims it doesn’t make your 100% scratch proof. Superior scratch resistance that isn’t 100% scratch proof.
Whoosh also placed this sticker on my box saying that it makes screens up to 15x stronger. I was unable to test that claim as I didn’t have the foresight to do what I did to the Crystal Tech Nano 2.0 liquid screen protector so if you want to see how much strong 15-30 molecules of glass is, check out that review video.
The last thing I will say is that Whoosh! doesn’t market the supposedly oleophobic properties of their liquid screen protector which is odd since Spigen and CrystalTech does. Good on them because I’m not sure liquid screen protectors actually add back the oleophobic coating to any smart phone.
