  • [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!

      You should give it away to someone that will put it on their phone and drop it face first on cement from 6 feet and see how well it holds up/and or breaks the phones glass screen

      Pretty slick. Although If we use screen protectors to prevent scratches on our glass phones, isn't putting glass on top redundant?

This screen protector look very amazing as it said it will give your phone the best protection and your finger feel. I hope I can win this and I think the prize worth every penny as it give you a lot more better than other

      This seems much more useful than a traditional plastic screen protector because it will be smoother, and more scratch resistant. But is it really any more useful than just doing without a protecor at all?

      The rationale for a screen protector is to sacrificially protect your screen from scratches. But plastic protectors scratch easily, so you will either end up replacing them frequently, or putting up with the inevitable scratches; either way it ends up counterproductive to the orginal goal.

      The trade-off with the SPIGEN GLAS seems more attractive. Being glass, there is a much better chance that you won't scratch it. But if you do, you are only up for $28 to replace it*, compared with $100+ for the iPhone screen itself. The problem with this equation is that the iPhone screen is very impressively scratch-resistant already; I haven't managed to put a single mark on mine in almost two years. In my case I'm happy to take my chances with the naked glass screen, given its track record.

      *Actually, I wonder how easy it is to replace a SPIGEN GLAS? If you broke the old one getting it off, you'd then be pulling shards off; that sound like a real recipe for scratching your screen!

      I can't get normals ones on myself with a lint or dirt being trapped under. Wonder if this one is simple.
