    Yup, a tempered glass screen protector for... your glass screen, seems pretty awesome imo :)

    At $27.99, seems like a no brainer :D

    Dang that's pretty cool. Wonder if they'll make one for the back. Hmm...

    They've had these for other phones like the Galaxy lineup etc. People that use them love them. I would do this over their other $28 protector for sure. Its thick so it will limit your case options but probably worth it.

    WHen I buy screen protectors, I always buy in a pack of 2 or 3, because I always screw up, or because of the bubbles. Imagine screwing up a 28$ screen protector ouch.

    I've seen this on a SGS2 and I heard problems about it during charging the screen becomes unresponsive?

    Actually yeah, I read that too, it's a kernel problem actually, this just seems to magnify that issue for some reason. If you [or the user] is rooted with another kernel, Night-something- I think, it's not an issue. That's for the GS2 anyways. I'm sure they learned their lesson for the iPhone? Hope so :3

    What I want to know what the period and lowercase "t" stand for.

    My guess would be it stands for tempered.

    Fair enough, but why is "glass" missing an "s" then?

    Oh so it's a software problem? Yeah I hope SGP learned that lesson. I'm quite interested in this protector. But how do you remove this protector if there's dust stucked under it? Doesn't seem easy.

    Interesting, I really like the idea. I really wish they had one for the back. Still fairly expensive for just a screen protector. Maybe if they do a bundle for the front and back I'd pick them up and do a review. I am sure it would limit what cases you could use due to the thickness of the glass.

    I am wondering how the coating will stand up to wear?

    Based on the hardness and the oleophobic coating, i actually think itll hold up ok!! my main concern is that its so thick, it might eventually start pealing off if it snags on something, or going in and out of my pockets...

    I will make sure to post pics.. and then follow up a few weeks later to give you all the 411 on this product..

    Funny, at .4mm thick.. its actually .05mm thicker than the desmay slight case i just ordered

    1) how easy is it to remove?
    2) Getting it on without dust underneath?

    It would be removed with a piece of tape like others. Being careful is how you install sans dust :)

    The hardness of the protector material doesn't improve durability of the coating. I wouldn't expect much based on using SGP's UO screen protector.

    Same as installing any other screen protector.

    If it doesn't scratch and is easier to clean than a crystal then I may buy it.
