[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!

We have two of these. They are amazing. By far the best screen cover I have ever seen by a LOOOOONG shot. Whoever wins these will not be disappointed.

Not sure I can justify $30 on a screen protector...
Does look very good though! 😚

looks nice. I hope to win and protect

Even if i don't win I may buy one. I've always had a screen protector so I'd never felt the glass of an iPhone until i bought the 4s a month ago, I think that feel is worth thirty bucks

Wouk like to try it out. Seems like a neat concept.

They only gave one to give out?
I thought it would have been five at least.
From the publicity they get from here I'm sure it would more than cover the cost, though maybe I'm wrong and this doesn't hold as much weight as I thought.
