  • [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!

      I bought this a few days ago and honestly I don't like it and I regret spending $28 on it. It really is noticeably thicker. Like it's very noticeable and it doesn't look very good on the screen. The the epoxy buttons that go over the home button make it look and feel bad too. The home button had a concave curve meaning that it curves downward. The buttons have a convex curve so they're like a bubble over the home button so they don't feel like the original home button at all. The only good thing that I like about it is that it feels like the real screen but I don't think it's worth it.

      I would really like to use a product like this, since my iphone means alot to me, and I cannot afford to pay for a new screen if it cracked or got a major flaw.

      Brilliant! They should make something like this for the iPad (I'm sure it would be a bit pricey), but imagine if it was slightly frosted - best anti-glare screen cover ever. Anyways, pretty damn awesome nonetheless.

      I love this screen protector. Films are not so useful, and don't protect at all from scratches. Hope I could win this protector's screen for my iPhone 4.
      It seems thinner and as strong as mine.
      Thank you for this contest, and thank you (all the team) for this awesome site.

      This looks legit! I've tried ZAGG before and love the protection, but HATE how it distorts the screen quality! I just want protection as well as be able to see my Retina screen how it was meant to be seen!
