    So, I was browsing through the Spigen website wondering why everything is OUT OF STOCK :mad: when I found these! This one differs from their original GLAS.t in that these have rounded edges (hence the 'R'). There IS a price difference between the 2, the original is $27.99 and this one is $34.99. Apparently, the rounded edges are more resistant to edge chipping. I know some people experienced chipping problems. Is anyone considering buying this over the original GLAS.t for few more bucks?

    so instead of fixing the flaws associated with the original product, they released a brand new product...

    I hate when Spigen does this, especially when I just bought a Glas.t earlier in the week. They did the same stuff when the galaxy s3 screen protectors as well.

    sweet now waiting for some slick deals before jumping in. I am loving my Otterbox Commuter along with GeneriK Antiglare/anti Fingerprint screen protector. Add a slight bit of thickness to the screen but keep that gorgeous color saturation and resolution.

    Just bought and installed a bodyguardz pure glass. I definitely would have considered this. :rolleyes:

    This statement makes zero sense. They DID fix it by improving the edge. Maybe you're confused because they changed the name... :confused:

    He's saying they didn't acknowledge the flaws in the first version and instead, release a new version while still selling the old flawed version.

    If anyone here has this - I would love to know how the thickness of the protector affects accessing the home button.

    Done and done. Thanks for the heads-up. ESP considering the regulars are sold out.

    Didn't have this upgraded version, but the original glas.t, the home button is slightly recessed but I ain't using the provided sticker and find that it still works sufficiently fine.

    How does this screen protector interact with slider type cases? I have the Incase slider which I really like and would like this glass protector if it fits with my case. Also, is their any noticeable weight increase with this protector compared to a regular one?

    No, they capitalized on a flaw to sell the proper product for more. I dont see them offering an exchange to customers...especially those who recently bought that would be reasonable.

    I just bought one and its unopened. I just sent an email for an RMA and purchase the newer version.

    I believe there is sufficient space around the perimeter to support it. I would put the case on then add the Glas.T

    This is not 100% for sure, and once you open the pack you cant return it.

    Something else I considered doing was applying the new button raising sticker first and perfectly, then letting it guide the placement of the glass.t Have not tried it just considering...

    You're so clever with that image!

    The old version is still great.

    Ordered 2 of the GLAS.t 'R' protectors for my 5 yesterday (just in case I screw up the first install). I'll let you know how it turns out.

    ~$70 for screen protection...pretty wild. Wanna sell me your other protector at a discount if your first application is successful? :D
