    Default Glass screen protectors

    Hi there,

    I have an iPhone 5, and am interested in all these glass screen protectors. I have never bought one before, and am interested to hear some opinions. Also, are their iPhone cases out there that are compatible with the glass screen protectors? Thanks!

    A whole bunch of new glass screen protectors were announced over the past few days at CES. Up to now I've only tried the Spigen GlassT. They are wonderful - feel lik no screen protector. They don't necessarily fit all cases.

    The good news, some of the new glass screen protectors are being put out by companies that also make cases, like BodyGuardz and Tech21. You might want to wait a few weeks to see all the news coming out about them and then make your decision.

    I too am intrigued. The one that I like the most is the Spigen Glass.tr. I did notice that there are some cases that do not fit the glass because it is thicker. With the Spigen Glass.tr it is curved glass and its one shot with the protector for application and that is it. For $40 I am a little scared of messing up and then eating the money.

    I screwed up the first application I did with the Glastr. It was microscopically off, and then when I put a case on it bubbled. No re-do. Game over. I'm waiting a review sample of the competition from Tech21, which is supposed to allow multiple remove/replace. I'll let ya know.

    I would like to try one of these but as I swap my cases out a lot, probably will not fit with a lot of them.

    Yes, there are some models that the Glast.r does not work with. They have the compatibility list on their website.

    I just got the Bodyguardz Pure and it's really great! It was relatively easy to put on; I screwed up a few times and was able to retry without too much trouble. I had a PowerSupport shield on it and that felt really nice (but not as good as a glass shield), but it was hell if you messed up on the first try. (I took it to a local Zagg kiosk and they put it on for me for a nominal fee.)

    By the way, I did not like the feel of the Home Button cover that comes with the Bodygaurdz Pure, so I took it off. After just a day or so, I don't notice the slight difference in feel of the iPhone 5's Home button now that it's slightly recessed more than usual. If you try the fake button, I suggest you put it on before the shield and note that it is not easy to get off once the shield is on.

    Hey people
    I've searched a lot about a perfect glass screen protector. I need some review from people who own these products: Spigen glas.t, Spigen glas.tr and Bodyguardz Pure

    There are a few points that I have seen after searching a lot about them:
    1. Spigen glas.t tends to chip at it's sides. My question is that does it chip even if it's in a case? Spigen has a new deal which gives a case and a glas.t for 35$

    2. Does spigen glas.tr chip too?

    3. Is pure any better than spigen products?


    Thanks I'm gonna order one of these tonight
