this may actually interest me now, nice find. But knowing how spigen works they are going to release this slim glast, and then a month later release a slim glastr.

Just when you thought you had the best screen protector or case, Spigen comes out with something better. When will I reach the bottom of this money pit?!

Exactly what I was thinking.

I hate how easily they get smudged after a while. I've had mine for a couple of months and I need to clean it every other minute.

do you guys enjoy the spigen glast.r? I am trying to decide if I want to purchase one or not yet; I just know if anything goes wrong with it (air bubbles, etc) I will take it off and then I just waisted 30+ bucks on a screen protector. I am usually pretty accurate when putting on screen protectors. I have a crappy invisible shield on right now & am probably going to just rock my iphone 5 naked or replace it with a glass screenshield

how does spigen compare to the competition such as MIME, iloome, bodyguardz etc. bodyguardz is a little out of my price range though

Unhappy Thats great...

That has been the only gripe of the Glas series from Spigen. I have one on my iPhone and my Sons iPhone. And, I am waiting on one more for my wife's iphone as well.

So glad...

But, I will buy one, or two, or three...

Thanks Spigen!

I've had the TR for a month and it's cool. After a while the edges of the glass tend to get air but doesn't really bother me now. Can't really notice it unless you really look. I like how smooth it feels when you swipe and touch the screen. It is smoother than the naked OEM glass.

would you need a tR slim though? isn't .26mm about the thickness of a regular screen protector? would you still worry about chipping at that thickness?

Correct me if I am wrong here but, wouldn't it be more beneficial to have a thicker glass screen protector seeing how it is after all supposed to be a screen protector right?


I see that it is not a TR model. Man I tell you, why do companies insist on manipulating their customers?

"35% more slim and light". They need to work on their advertising. So what they are saying is 35% more of less.

This product is directed towards people who don't want a thick glass screen protector but still want glass. I would fall under this demographic. Some people don't need protection (i.e. people who like bumpers) but still want to feel glass instead of plastic and also protect their screens from scratches.

Also, a tR slim version may not be necessary, since it's thinner than the regular t's and tR's.

Bingo. I just *won* a 7.77 discount code from SPIGEN so I think I'll save it for this puppy.

Weird that it is not as slim. I foresee them doing away with the regular t's and tR's like they did with the neo hybrid bumpers.
