- Product Details
Steinheil GLAS.t SLIM is made to protect the LCD from damage and scratches with specially processed transparent glass that has been reinforced to increase shock absorbency. The glass has been designed to be 35% slimmer and still maintain its high level of surface hardness of 8~9H. When installed, there are no gaps between the LCD and the GLAS.t SLIM which means the touch screen's sensitivity is unaffected. To prevent any excess force from coming in contact with the edges of the screen protector we highly recommend that a case is used with the GLAS.t SLIM.
- 23mm Slim
- Surface hardness : 8~9H : The surface of the GLAS.t SLIM has a hardness of 8-9H, three times stronger than regular PET film. The GLAS.t SLIM is highly scratch resistance even against sharp objects such as knives and keys.
- Oleophobic Coating : The GLAS.t SLIM has an oleophobic coating that prevents fingerprints and other contaminants and makes the film easy to clean.
- Delicate Touch : The GLAS.t SLIM is coated on the back with a strong silicon adhesive that makes installation easy and attaches the film firmly so as to not affect the touch screen's sensitivity.
- Anti-Shatter Film : If broken, the GLAS.t SLIM breaks into small pieces that are not sharp and contained in the film, making it safer than other glass products.
*As this is a glass product, please note that the edges of the glass are the most vulnerable areas. We highly recommend that you use a case along with your GLAS.t SLIM to avoid chipping or cracking the edges of your GLAS.t SLIM
*When removing for re-use, the adhesive properties might wear off to an extent where the screen protector will not adhere to the device. It is not recommended to reuse the GLAS.t SLIM once it's been applied. *Using excessive force when installing or removing the screen protector may damage the product.
Q. How much slimmer is the GLAS.t Slim from the GLAS.t?
A. The GLAS.t Slim has a thickness of 0.23mm and the original GLAS.t has a thickness of 0.4mm.
Q. How do I install the GLAS.t Slim?
A. Use the provided alcohol swab to clean your device and make sure that the surface is completely dry and clean afterwards. The tab labeled "Back" is the protective film that covers the adhesive (sticky) side of the screen protector. The tab labeled "Front" is the protective film that covers the front of the GLAS.t. Remove the Back tab and apply the screen protector to the device screen aligning with the cutouts. Squeegee any bubbles and then remove the Front tab when finished. The GLAS.t is a one-shot install. This means that once the screen protector is applied completely to the device, it cannot be removed and reapplied. Make sure the GLAS.t is centered before laying down the GLAS.t.
Q. What happens if I mess up on the installation or something goes wrong with my GLAS.t?
A. You do not have to worry! Your GLAS.t is protected by our GLAS.t Low-Cost Replacement Program. Simply return the GLAS.t product back to us with the replacement form filled out completely. You can find the form here: www.spigen.com/need1more
Q. How do I remove the GLAS.t Slim?
A. The GLAS.t can be removed by using a hard card like an ID, credit card, or even your fingers. Lift the GLAS.t with the card from any corner of the screen protector. Once the corner has been lifted off the device, hold the corner and remove slowly. If the GLAS.t cracks, it will not shatter. The GLAS.t will not damage or leave residue on your screen.
Q. What cases will work with the GLAS.t Slim?
A. Most of our SPIGEN SGP cases will work with the GLAS.t, if it does not, it will be stated on the case product page or product FAQ. For other brands, some slider cases may not work with the GLAS.t. The GLAS.t is 0.26 mm thick so if you have any doubts, please contact the case manufacturer.
Q. Is there anything I should take caution of when using the GLAS.t?
A. The GLAS.t is made from real glass. While it is tempered to shatter within the film when dropped, there are some things that you need to be aware of when using the GLAS.t. As with most glass products, the edges of the GLAS.t are the most vulnerable areas on the screen protector. This means the edges are the most likely to chip or crack when pressure or force is applied to it. If you see that the edges have chipped or have cracks, please remove the GLAS.t from your device as this can be potentially harmful. Please take care that your device is not accessible to children if your GLAS.t begins to crack. We highly recommend that you use a case along with your GLAS.t screen protector to avoid chipping along the edges. Also we would recommend using a case to protect the edges against any unwanted lifting.
Q. What if I have more questions about the product?
A. Not a problem! Please contact our Product Development Customer Support team on Helpdesk! www.spigen.com/contacts

After searching through many reviews and XDA threads on glass protectors I ended up on Spigen. I've been a customer of theirs for several years and have only used their cases. I decided to make the quality jump from Zagg (awful) to Glass.
This product has an almost perfect fit and works very well with my Slim Armor case. For installation, I actually left the case on to gain a better alignment. It was easy and quick to install, after getting all the lint off the screen. I had to realign it only once.
My only gripe with the product is where the home button is. The glass on the bottom, surrounding the button is fairly weak. There is a permanent bubble that will not stick dont because of the weakness. Not sure if this is a design flaw but I feel that by not surrounding the home button it could be stronger.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to go glass!

- Amazing screen protector! Review by Jono Cono
Design Value Quality
This is actually the first time I've used a screen protector on any of my phones. The installation could not have been easier. I installed this on a brand new phone and used the hinge (tape) method so the actual screen of the phone hadn't even been touched and had no dust, dirt etc. The screen protector essentially installed itself.
Amazing feel, so glossy it makes the screen of my S3 feel rough. The sensitivity and responsiveness of the screen is not impeded at all by this screen protector. It really does feel better than "normal" screen protectors. It's a premium price but for a premium product.
Like others have mentioned there are sharp edges to this screen protector. I'm also using the Spigen Slim armor case with my S4 and GLAS.t SLIM and it all fits together so perfectly you don't notice the edges of the screen protector at all.

- Excellent Product! Review by Evila
Design Value Quality
Very thin and the glass feels great on the phone! It adds a little weight to your phone and was a little hard to work the bubbles out with the squeegee, but thanks to advice from NhanVuong in the first review it went well. The coating is great and finger print proof to a very great extent and can be easily cleaned with a micro fibre cloth.
A negative would be the fact that it has strong sharp edges but they will not cut your hand, but left my thumb itching for a while.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who's willing to pay some extra bucks to give your Galaxy S4 the best protection a screen protector can offer.

- Premium feel! Review by NhanVuong
Design Value Quality
+ Real glass feels so much better than normal screen protectors!
The fact that it's made of glass also makes it more vulnerable, but instead of breaking your screen, this takes the damage.
This does have some sharp edges. If you're willing to pay the extra bucks, you can get the GLAS.tR which does add more thickness. but have those rounded edges.
IMO, GLAS.t works just fine!
Note: Be careful when squeezing out tiny bubbles. I managed to make a small crack (2-3mm long) at the edge of the GLAS.t when I tried to squeeze some air out.

I have used this for a week, its a great glass cover. Thin enough that it doesnt affect the flip cases closing all the way and fitting snug on the screen. I havent tried the thicker model one, but i am super happy with this one. Buy it quick!
