Best feeling protector I've felt and seen, more slick than the iPhone screen itself.
Price is somewhat steep, but if all goes well (reason below) I believe it's a worthy product.
The bubbles I have on the bottom edge of my screen and around my ear speaker are getting bigger, although it states on their guide "smaller bubbles should disappear within 1-2 days". Been reading up on the Glas.t models, and it seems they have similar issues, dubbed "Adhesivegate or whatnot.
Willing to wait the recommended 2 days for results, but at this rate (it's been about 8 hours since I METICULOUSLY installed) it doesn't look good at all. Been following their instructions and have been using the squeeegee to remove, but they keep coming back.
DETAILS: Let me begin by saying that I am a perfectionist, and if I were to do something wrong, I would KNOW it and I would admit to it. I know for a fact that I took appropriate, if not exaggerated methods, to make sure I installed this correctly. To describe how I installed, I let the shower run for about 10 min, so the humidity prevented any small debris from floating about. Wiped the area, fingers, screen, everything around and on me clean. After about 10 min of making sure the screen did not have a single speck of dust under an extremely bright light source, I peeled the back adhesive cover and immediately applied it on to the phone. I made sure nothing, including my own fingers, touched that adhesive backing, and the entire screen was spotless and wiped with alcohol multiple times. Installation went smoothly, and nothing was caught under the adhesive whatsoever. Found bubbles on the bottom of the screen immediately, but didn't think much of it and thought they would disappear.Read more ›
Also, it adds a bit a heft to the phone. The iPhone 5 is a very, very light phone. For some, may be even too light. Some people prefer the solid feel of the iPhone 4 and 4S, and adding the GLAS.tR gives it a close to an iPhone 4 feel.
So if you like the lightness of the iPhone 5, this is not your screen protector. If you want some heft, go for this model.
The real problem though is the application. Because this is glass, it's fairly rigid, and that would be fine if the glass and/or the iPhone 5 screen was perfectly flat. But there a minor imperfections in either the glass or the iPhone 5 screen that causes bubbles to form. These are usually found around the edges of the device, or the speaker/button sections. This is probably where cutting out the holes for the speaker and/or buttons, or the machining of the iPhone glass may lead to minor unevenness in the cut. With a plastic screen protector, the flexibility and stretch-ability of the film allows it to fill-in these small dips or bumps, and when the film dries, it essentially fills up these holes. Not the glass though. Since it's so rigid and it's applied dry it doesn't "cure" like plastic. The glass can't conform exactly to the shape of contours of the iPhone glass screen.
So if you can live with minor bubbles around the edges, then everything is okay. If you are a perfectionist, it's going to annoy you....Read more ›
2 months after the protector was meticulously placed on a phone that was cleaned as per the instructions a foggy area started in the upper left corner of the protector. This foggy area where the protector is actually delaminating from the surface of the phone has been growing ever since and now actually covers a part of the visible screen. The phone has never been dropped and looks as it did when it came out of the Apple box but with an ugly delaminating screen protector placed on top.
Since these things claim to have a warranty I contacted their website support. After some back and forth they decide that since I purchased through Amazon they want me to contact them through the Amazon support link because for whatever reason that support person couldn't access their sales from their own Amazon page. So I followed their directions and re-contacted them through their Amazon support link with all the same info and they now claim they cannot honor the warranty because I purchased it on Amazon and not their website. Basically their warranty is worthless.
So 1 star because the concept is good, but the peeling and total lack of customer/warranty service leaves this firmly in the DO NOT BUY category especially since there are much better and proven reliable screen protectors out there. Sucks, because I really wanted to like this one.
