Thought I’d share a few photos of the Spigen EZ fit glass screen protector I’ve just fitted to my iPhone 12 mini.

You get two in the pack, as well as two prep kits.

Wipe the screen with the supplied wet wipe and then dry it with the cloth. Finally use the sticker to remove any dust from the screen.

Then you just remove the backing film from the screen protector, and it aligns itself correctly - unlike others that might not go on quite straight even with a frame.

The touch sensitivity is great, it actually feels nicer than the glass and your finger glides across the protector with ease. It also hides finger prints better than the glass did.

No light bleed from the edges, it doesn’t cover the notch but doesn’t look out of place and will work with any case as well, pictures show it paired with the Apple black leather case.

Really impressed with the quality, the price and the ease of application which often puts people off trying it themselves.

It was amazingly easy to install on my 12 Pro Max although it may be a bit on the delicate side. I've already replaced it - happily it came in a two pack.

I have the edge-to-edge variant with the AlignMaster. Bought 4 packages, so 8 screen protectors. I already burnt 5 of them in a week. It seems I had a faulty batch and had scratches at the backside of the screen protector, where the adhesive is.

I decided to try ESR and am much happier than I was with Spigen. Also, Spigen scratches quite easily.

I've been using Spigen's for at least four or five years and have never had a scratch problem.

Never had a scratch on my spigen glass protectors either and I’ve been in some serious scuffles where my phone has gone flying across concrete and asphalt.

Where did you get it from? Spigen ones shouldn’t scratch easily at all.

ESR ones are good, however I dislike any that use a frame as you risk not getting it dead straight, where as the EZ fit ones it’s basically impossible not to get it straight every time, with zero effort.

I also use these, and they are excellent. Much better than the $30 jobs sold at big box retailers.

Use them for myself and whole extended family across iPhone 8plus, XR, 11, 12Pro, and 12ProMax. My personal ones last a good year or so, but my daughter goes through one every couple of months.

At the price, not a big deal and they always go on super easy. Also highly recommend!

I got mine on Amazon and my protector is also scratched. I never dropped it and carry my iPhone in its own pocket.

Im glad the protector scratched and not my screen though.

Love Spigen screen protectors. Haven’t dropped my 12PM yet but my clumsy wife’s 11PM gets dropped hard on a weekly basis and still no chips or cracks.

My only complaint is that the notch cutout is super close to the infrared sensor but it hasn’t given me any problems yet so overall, a good buy.
