EDIT: Minor mistake in the title. Ignore the small s.

Just released by Spigen:

http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/ap...ector-glas-t-slim-premium-tempered-glass.html

Will have to pick this one up. for $28 it looks like this beats other glass protectors given that this is very thin now. :D

I refuse to buy this. Spigen just keeps making new ones to keep people buying more. My Glas.t is still perfect.

What does the surface on these glass screen protectors feel like? More towards matte or clear? I've never been interested in glass screen protectors, because I prefer smooth, anti fingerprint screens.

Very clear and buttery smooth. The GLAS screen shields from Spigen are smoother than the bare glass.

Ah but if the case doesn't have a lip over the protector , then you might notice.

Curious as to how this will fit compared to the rounded edges of the Tr? I've got a Tr on my iPhone 5 and well as my wife's and I am completely happy with it. While at times I wish it was a little thinner, I agree with the response earlier that the thicker the better.

However, my mouse is over the "Add To Cart" button as we speak.

Thanks! And are they prone to fingerprints? I leave prints on anything I touch other than matte, so fingerprint magnets are a no-go.

Less than the bare glass. The coating is phenomenal. What's really intriguing is how the screen "self wipes/cleans" while it is carried in a pocket. It's sounds like a lie but it's not, they're amazing products. I am crazy about screen smudges and would always wipe the bare glass while at work but now I rarely ever wipe it.

I do have the current Glas.tr on my phone and it is great. Less smudges, and the screen looks better with it on. If I didnt already have it on, I would get the slim version. But since I do, and it went on perfectly without any dust, I will wait until the iphone 6 comes out to get a new screen protector.

This is great to those who use their iPhone 5 with a case. I have had my GlastR for well over 3 months now and it is still great. I even have a extra one laying around should this would end up breaking in some way.

I do use their slim bumper so I do have a lip around it. Only reason I might order this. Not to mention I have a 30% off on Glast products I still haven't used.

I have the new Saturn case which I absolutely love. There's no lip on this case so would the R/tR difference be noticeable?

Yes it is. You use the GlastR with a case with no lip, when placing the phone down, your phone will be raised up a bit by the GlastR itself. A phone with a lip usually provides enough where the phone doesn't depend on the screen.

This isn't an issue to some people though because some people simply don't put their phone facing down. I do a lot so I'm always into cases with a lip.

It depends on you. If you don't put your phone face down, just get the GlastR or wait for the GlastR slim.


GLAS.tR Slim is coming soon, according to a comment they posted on facebook:

Spigen SGP: The GLAS.tR SLIM will arrive soon! It is not as slim as the GLAS.t SLIM but it will have the rounded edges! Check http://www.spigen.com for details!

Great to hear. I'll just wait out for the GlastR slim then. Hopefully you can actually notice the slim look with i, seeing as it won't be as slim as this one.
