Bodyguardz also has a glass protector. Some 50% coupons floating around.

I was going to buy it but that is way too expensive for one protection screen only. If they had the same warranty/service as Bodyguardz then I'd buy it. Hope Bodyguardz offer the same rounded edges soon.

I've been using the bodyguardz pure glass the past few days and I think the rounded edges would be perfect, especially for the home button cutout.

Ripped Off

GLAS.t is susceptible to edge chipping.

Instead of fixing the flaws related with the original GLAS.t, Spigen released a brand new product GLAS.tR (R for rounded edges) that is more resistant to edge chipping.

You know what is the best part? They also increased the price from $27.99 to $34.99 for correcting the original product flaws.

Come on Spigen, youíre better than this.

Remove the GLAS.t from your inventory and start selling GLAS.tR only for the original price of $27.99. This is your corporate social responsibility.

Those who just bought the GLAS.t should ask for a free upgrade and donít get ripped off.

What cases are you guys using with this? I just ordered one from Amazon and haven't decided on what case to use.

I have a feeling it's going to be a lot thicker than I anticipate. Ideally I'd like to use this with a Speck Pixelskin HD, but I don't know if that's in the cards.

Great! Please post a review once you get it! I did order the Pure because of 50% off! If the gas.tr is really better i would order from them too!

This is where ordering from Amazon is an advantage. I am returning the Neo and Glas.t - worried about chipping. I may order the rounded Glas.tR.

I guess its too early to tell, but would be nice to know if this R version also fixed the adhesive issue of the protector separating from the phone like the original one did.

I just got my glass.t in the mail today and its absolutely amazing. Couldn't ask for any better screen protector that is this responsive. Reacts the same with or without glass on. Amazing.

So did you get the GLAS.t or the GLAS.t R? Reason I ask is because this is the glas.t R thread and hoping you got this one so maybe you can post some pictures? haha! do you feel the difference between the GLAS.t and the GLAS.t R?

That Amazon link is pretty deceiving. Clearly it's for IPhone 5, but it has 165 reviews, mostly glowing reviews, almost all of them are reviews for the IPhone 4 version of the same thing. That's a pretty crappy thing to do IMO, very shady. You can't tell if the recent reviews are for the same IPhone 4 version of the new product.

Oh its the glass.t

What is the big difference? This glass is really perfect.

Looked it up but what is edge chipping exactly. If its that the corners on the iPhone is getting more protection from bumps I'm okay. I've got a silicone case protecting my back and borders.

After installing the Glas.TR on my black iPhone, I noticed a couple "chips" with tiny cracks on the underside of the bottom edge and around the speaker cutout. I have contacted spigen already. You couldn't see these prior to installation.

i don't understand this damage. so the edges are shattered? underneath? what do you think how this could have happened? maybe a production flaw? your application seems quite perfect so i wont blame you for doing something wrong. how do you like the glas.tr despite this flaw?

I had the similar on My glasst. Are you sure it's cracks ? Mine looked just like that but it was dust. Btw , I highly recommend using scotch tape for removal of dust prior installation.

It's not dust. You can clearly see if you zoom in that those are chips. You can see the light reflecting off the glass in a weird way.

I felt like Walter white from breaking bad installing it. In a steamy bathroom, no shirt on, and had a can of dust off. Lol

Are you sure to not tiny bubbles? My edges looked like that for a day and it went away. Ditto on the Walter white lol. I was sweating like crazy and tremoring from trying to place it perfectly.
