  • [GIVEAWAY] SPIGEN GLAS.t Tempered Glass iPhone Screen Protector


    There are a lot of screen protectors out there. A lot. I've reviewed a half dozen at least, and they're everywhere it seems. So why create more? Maybe just to round out a product lineup... but SPIGEN's GLAS.t screen protector actually brings something unique to the screen protector landscape.

    If you read our reviews, you're probably familiar with SPIGEN. They are the same company as SGP (which sadly stands for Stylish people's Good Partner), but have started marketing their products under the SPIGEN name - much better. They're based out of LA, California, and have been creating all sorts of nifty products.

    So what's a GLAS.t? A very cool screen protector different from what I've seen so far. It's tempered glass, rather than the typical PET film you see on other protectors. This gives it much more strength and protective quality, and it feels just like using the actual iPhone screen under your fingers. It's also noticeably thicker than typical protectors, at .4 mm.

    Because it's actually glass, it's also stronger than the typical film - about 3 times as strong. This means things like knives and keys won't scratch even the protector, much less the screen itself.



    In the packaging is a whole bunch of stuff. The actual piece of tempered glass (which goes on VERY easy since it's a solid piece rather than flimsy film), a squeegee to press the glass on, a cleaning wet nap, and a microfiber cloth to clean your screen before applying. In addition, there's a collection of home button stickers with a bubbled coating - 2 of each of 3 colors. These are useful because the extra thickness of the screen protector gives a noticeable indent where the home button is. One of these buttons being on there makes it more flush again (not quite, but closer).

    A little pricey due to the methods being used and that it's actual glass, you can grab the GLAS.t for $27.99 on the SPIGEN website. They've also sent us a giveaway unit, so get some entries to the giveaway using the widget below, and we'll pick a winner Thursday!

      SGP make some other decent (plastic) oleophobic screen protectors.
      sziklassy, do you know if this one has an oleophobic coating? If not, I may have to put an ultra-oleophobic film on the top of this to protect the glass screen protector from scratches. Then I'll need something to protect the ultra-oleophobic film from scratches...

      Would love to win to be able to try this. However someone said glass on glass bit crazy and that got me wondering, roughlyhHow much is it to replace the original iphone glass if it gets damaged?

      I'm surprised n one else is commenting. I'd much prefer this over the usual screen protector. I've opted out of using protectors for a bit because their quality seems to fade over time and just aren't the same as the natural digitizer's feel (which I imagine this is similar to).

      How odd. When I'm logged in, I only see one comment. When I'm logged out, I see them all, but I cannot delete my first foolish comment.
