    I believe just rounded off curves. I can't imagine they are too different.

    I got a 50% promo code from bodyguardz so I went with their product.

    What's the appeal of using glass to protect glass? :confused:

    feels better than screen protector and is just like have nothing on your screen but its protected!

    Glas.tr is so expensive... Is it really worth it? Btw, what home button sticker does it come with?

    I have used both, have the BG on my i5 right now and honestly feel the BG is a better product than the glass T. The one I have (not sure if they are all this way) is case friendly and can be put on using a bumper as a template. Feels great, went on easier than the GlassT IMHO and is a bit cheaper esp with the 50% off I got.

    Pure is thinner and they also offer a discounted price on replacements

    I have the BG Pure and it is amazing. Going to order one for my wife's 4S and a friend wants one too after seeing mine.

    Yes this is also the reason I went with body guardz. And with the 70% off with the 2 discounts... Bodyguardz was a total no brainer!

    Thank you bodyguardz! I love the pure sp.

    Pure is the best thing ever.
    I have to say that they are both probably the same (never tried Glas.TR)

    Will post review/photos of the Pure shortly!

    I believe that the Pure is a bit thinner, has the discount (50%), has replacements for $13.

    Both say they have a hardness of 8H, but Bodyguardz actually has a video of them hammering down on it. Apparently, the Pure is harder than steel.

    Does the Pure have a tapered edge around the home button like the Glas.tr? Or is it deep like the Glas.t?

    Glas.tr vs pure

    1. Any more promo codes, PLease?
    2. The Bodyguardz website says only 4/4s get the $12.95 replacement. Iphone5 is not listed on the program.
    3. Does the Pure have bevelled edges like the .tr ? It is an issue to me because they ar eboth .4 mm thick, dont know where the other memeber got that .7 from, but spigen site says .4mm for the glas.t and .tr.
    4. If the pure has a better install/adhesive, may go with the pure. any unbiased opinions on that? also, if anyone has a spare home button insert black from a glas.t, please let me know :) thanks in advance!

    So with coupon this means that if your first install doesn't go so great, you can end up receiving and using 2 Bodyguardz Pures for less than the price of 1 Spigen Glas.tr.

    Interesting... considering it's glass, what did you scratch it with?
    Even regular 3H or 4H screen protectors can hold up/heal scratches fine.

    Yep but you have to send the messed up pure sp back to them. You can't get 2 for 30 bucks. But 2 chances at installing pure for the price of 1 chance at installing the glas.t.. Yes.

    I have no idea... I think it was just from taking it out of my jeans.

    If its so abnormal, should I contact BG for replacement?
