    Let me preface my review by saying, I was provided this PHANTOM sample by Cupert Technology. All opinions of this product are solely my own.

    After trying edge to edge products and having some issues with case swapping, I've been on the hunt for a case friendly thin protector. I've tried eBay and some of the well known brands.

    Nothing really worked to my liking. They were either too thick or glass quality wasn't there.

    Cupert offered me a chance to review their new super thin PHANTOM 0.15 mm glass protector. Firstly, the packaging is very professional and very well put together.

    I took several pictures of the packaging, because I was very impressed by how organized it was.

    Everything you need is included, with clear instructions. This makes installation a breeze. Make sure you use the blue anti-static sheet that's enclosed. It really does help with minimizing dust issues.

    The adhesive on this protector is excellent. There were no bubbles and it went on effortlessly. I had to pick it up and remove a piece of lint and it sat back down perfectly. It was very easy to work with.

    This thing is ridiculously thin. I was able to flex it in my hand, with no issue. While doing this, I didn't feel it would break. The glass appears to be of excellent quality.

    The PHANTOM is super smooth to the touch, with smooth rounded edges everywhere on the glass. Using the touch screen and swiping is perfect. The oleophobic coating repels fingerprints quite well.

    This is far and away the thinnest glass protector I've ever installed. It almost feels like it's not there. If you run your finger over the home button, it's super smooth and there's just a slight feeling of a protector install. In this respect, it's unlike any non-edge to edge protector I've installed on my 6+.

    I hope the close up pictures give you an idea how super thin this glass is.

    If you're looking for a non edge to edge protector, this one is very worthy of your consideration and needless to say, the PHANTOM is staying on my 6+.

    I'm very pleased with it and can recommend it to others.

    Fantastic review! It sounds like Cupert has a great product in the Phantom. Edge to edge screen protectors are neat, but there is a lot to be said for case friendly ones like the Phantom as well.

    Your pics makes it looks like some of the "active" screen is not covered, just slightly like its too narrow. Is this correct?

    Yes. Price point is high and is a negative in my opinion.

    I think around $12-15 and these would be a great value. Demand drives price. If they don't sell enough of these, I'm thinking they'll consider a price adjustment.

    So will it cover the whole screen width wise?

    Yes.

    Even though it's slightly off on my phone and being it's so thin, it really makes no difference. Especially in regards to the colored prism effect on the edges that some suffer from.

    Did you ever get a chance to try the Phantom with the Candyshell Grip case? I'm using this case and really like it. Using a screen protector too may be overkill, as the cover protects the screen. However, the inside of the cover pretty much sits on the screen and I'm bit concerned that, should any dirt get on the inside of the cover, it may end up scratching the screen. There's very little space between the cover and the screen for a screen protector, so most of them will prevent the cover from closing properly. Since the Phantom is so thin, I was wondering if it works?

    I just ordered this to replace my clicky, curved protector.

    Sorry to be so slow to answer your question, but I just saw it. Actually, I haven't reviewed the Phantom screen protector, so I can't comment on this. I think SCJR has a CandyShell Grip, though?

    Way too pricey. Keep the cardboard and lower the price to $10 then we will talk.

    Shouldn't be an issue.

    The CS Grip has a generous lip, but there's room between the lip and where the actual screen begins.

    I think this information is incorrect, from the photos supplied it's clear that it does not cover the whole screen, this effect can only be offered by an edge-to-edge screen protector.

    He was talking about viewable screen coverage only.
