I feel like the screen looks a lot clearer on my phone using glass rather than one of the plastic screen protectors. The anti-fingerprint coating works okay, but doesn't completely prevent them. I don't want to risk damaging the protector, so I won't test out the scratch resistance of it, but according to box it is strong enough to be blade proof and has a scratch resistant 8H surface hardness (apparently that is the equivalent of topaz, according to a google search.)
The only downside is that it is noticeably thicker than a normal screen protector. This is mostly only noticeable when using the home button, because now it is below the level of the glass protector and feels somewhat awkward. I'm sure that I will get used to it, for people that don't like it, there are included raised home button stickers, but for those with an iPhone 5S, it would make the fingerprint scanner inaccessible.
I'm entirely impressed. They have a nice package and graphic add on the amazon item page, but as of writing this, only 5 user reviews, and nobody else online selling them. And it's not just a nice package, it's a quality product.
Package/contents: Packaging is very sturdy to prevent damage in transit. Comes with alcohol wipe, microfiber cloth, protector, home button stickers for iPhone 5 (white and black), and instructions. Instructions were in English, and clear and easy to understand.
Thickness: I have nothing to compare to, but It's barely noticeable. I use a Seidio Active case which wraps over the front edge of the phone, and was worried that it wouldn't sit well with the protector. the conclusion: NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, fits great!!!
If you're worried about buying a .3mm or .23mm which cost a lot more to save on thickness: DON'T. It will be an absolute waste to do that. .4mm is thin, and as long as whatever you buy has rounded edges, you'll never know it's there.
Edges: All edges are rounded. Outer edge, opening for ear speaker, and around home button.
I have a 5s, so my other concern was the depth of the opening with the glass on to have my finger read the sensor.
the conclusion: NO PROBLEMS AT ALL! While it's a bit deep, it's actually really unusually comfortable
If you have an iPhone 5, it comes with stick on home buttons to raise up to level with glass, nice, but unnecessary.
In reference to Brandon's review where he said with a 5s, the home button is inaccessible, he's flat wrong. I have ZERO issue with any finger unlocking my 5s. Zero!!!
Clarity: It's absolutely clear, there's no distortion or color loss, in fact, it's hard to describe, but it almost looks more vibrant through the glass. Front facing camera has no clarity issues whatsoever. Perfectly clear.
Touch: There is NO loss of responsiveness whatsoever having this on.
Oleophobic coating: aka. finger print/oil resistant coating. It works fairly well, you still get prints on the screen, but not quite as pronounced as without. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being how dirty it got without the glass. The worst it ever gets is a 7. So It's a win, it's better than without.
Protection: I took a razor blade to it, didn't leave a mark. Keys in my pocket, nada. It's as advertised, you are gonna have to TRY hard to scratch this thing. WIN!
Cons: it's not free.
Bottom line: If you're looking at a more expensive one than this ($9.99 when I bought), you are flat out wasting your $$$. This is the cheapest, seemingly reputable brand, shipped from the USA (fulfilled by Amazon, with Prime 2day shipping) rather than 2-3 weeks from China. To protect your $600-800 device, this is arguably the most cost effective ultra protecting thing you can get. Heck, with a Seidio case (minus being waterproof), it's almost unbreakable.
Happy customer here! I ordered 2 more for my other 2 family iPhones.
However, I dropped my phone and broke this screen protector. The drop was significant: 3-4 ft onto cobblestone. The fact that it broke isn't surprising. What is revealed (and what may be obvious to others) is - this is a piece of GLASS mounted to a piece of PLASTIC. I assume that other glass protectors are the same. It's probably necessary to get it to adhere to the screen and also makes it safer if it ever breaks. I wanted to try glass because I thought it would look nicer (i.e. be more transparent), feel nicer, and be more durable. In reality (and because it's mounted to plastic), it really just feels better .... after breaking this protector and switching back to plastic I've noticed just how thick this glass protector really was ... it's a small difference, but the new plastic protector is soooooo much slimmer. It's probably 1/4 the thickness at least, looks just as good if not better, and while it doesn't feel quite as good - the difference is barely noticeable to me. Resistance to smudging seems similar, too.
Some might say that the glass offers more protection - It's possible that this is true, I can't say for sure. I've used cheap plastic protectors, high quality plastic protectors, and this glass one. The cheap plastic ones are, indeed, terrible in my experience. They scratch easily, feel terrible, etc. But the high quality plastic ones (zagg and others) a very tough and feel good - I think I'll stick with them for now.
Anyways, I'm glad I purchased this because it's a great, cheap, glass protector - but I don't think I'll ever get glass again ...
