- Product Details
Steinheil GLAS.tR 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 GLAS.tR SLIM has all the great properties of the GLAS.t SLIM, but it's been improved to ensure even longer lasting durability. The R in GLAS.tR stands for the rounded edges of the screen protector. Being made of glass, the edges of the screen protector are the most vulnerable to chipping. The rounded edges help to deflect shock from bumps and drops. The glass has been designed to be 28% 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.tR 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.tR SLIM.
- 28% Slimmer
- Surface hardness : 8~9H : The surface of the GLAS.tR SLIM has a hardness of 8-9H, three times stronger than regular PET film. Even sharp objects such as knives and keys will not scratch the GLAS.tR SLIM.
- Rounded Borders: The edges of the GLAS.tR SLIM are tapered to be chip resistant and more durable.
- Oleophobic Coating : The GLAS.tR SLIM has an oleophobic coating that prevents fingerprints and other contaminants and makes the film easy to clean.
- Delicate Touch : The GLAS.tR 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.tR SLIM breaks into small pieces that are not sharp, making it safer than other glass products.
*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.tR SLIM once it's been applied. *Using excessive force when installing or removing the screen protector may damage the product.
Q. Does the GLAS.tR Slim work for other Samsung Galaxy devices?
A. No, we are sorry but our Galaxy S4 GLAS.t will only be compatible with Galaxy S4 devices.
Q. How do I install the GLAS.tR 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. The GLAS.tR Slim is 0.4 mm thick and will recess the home button. For easy access to the home button, please apply the home button stickers provided with your GLAS.t package.
Q. What happens if I mess up on the installation or something goes wrong with my GLAS.tR Slim?
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.tR Slim?
A. The GLAS.t can be removed by using a hard card like an ID or credit card. 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 device screen.
Q. Is there anything I should take caution of when using the GLAS.t?
A. The GLAS.t is a product made of 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.
- Pretty while it lasted Review by Tom
Design Value Quality
I followed the directions and was able to install without any bubbles, hairs or dust and it looked great along with the spigen slim armor case in dark blue. However I just saw a small crack right in the center of the screen but the phone was never dropped, hit, cut abused, etc. It's about half of an inch right now, but I am pretty sure that it will grow with continued use of the phone.
Needless to say I am very disappointed as I thought I had a very protective setup with the case and glass screen protector.

- Strong, Durable, ANTI-SCRACTH PROOF....REALLY SAVES YOUR SCREEN!!!! Review by Derek
Design Value Quality
I've had the Galaxy S4 for about a week now; right when I got home from getting the phone I put the GLAS.tR SLIM on ASAP... Well about a week later I decided to put the protector to test while at work (I was bored)...I started scratching the screen with a utility knife as hard as I could and their was NO SCRATCH!!!! I swear I did it about 50 times!!! Then I decided to hammer down on the screen with the end of the knife (like I said I was bored). It took about 5 hard blows to the screen then a small impact was made and cracked the screen protector. I wasn't worried tho I trust Spigen Products. First time I bought from them but knew they were legit. So I turned off my phone, carefully peeled off the glass screen protector and looked for any flaws on the screen, and their was NOTHING!!!! No scratch, chip, crack; NOTHING!!!! Only thing now I have to get a new one... :( The only way I see the screen cracking or anything is if someone is careless with their phone or intentionally crack it....(me). Worth every penny. Feels amazing. The Jelly Buttons Kinda suck but I but the Aluminum Home Button which I also advise getting. Sounds tricky to install a glass screen protector right? But it's actually EASIER to install than them other screen protectors. The case I have at the moment is a BALLISTIC SG MAXX and it fit perfect. I might just go SPIGEN ALL THE WAY. Oh and another thing to help installation....what I did is I put the ALUMINUM HOME BUTTON on first, then just aligned the hole for the home button first then literally dropped the screen protector on the phone. I didn't press down on it at all just waited a few minutes and let gravity do the work. No bubbles and it only took about 5 min tops. Now for the thickness; It didn't bother me none, couldn't tell it was on! depending on the type of person you are and how you look at things, I think the GLAS.tR SLIM would be better than the NANO slim, but thats just me. Once you read this review it got you all hyped up huh? Go ahead; get it! Unless you don't want maximum protection for your Galaxy S4!!!
GOOD JOB SPIGEN!!! : )

- very nice overall Review by Jack
Design Value Quality
Overall, this is an amazing product. The cuts around the home button and speaker grill are absolutely perfect. There's not much to say about this product. The oleophobic surface is very pleasant for the fingers and slides extremely smoothly. The rounded edges have to be the defining aspect that separates this glass screen protector from all the other ones currently on the market. It really gives the Samsung Galaxy S4 a premium feel and build quality on the borders. If there was one thing I could change about this screen protector, it would be the thickness. This is by far THE THICKEST screen shield I have ever used on any device. It comes in at .4 mm thick, which is a lot! I really care about my devices and that is why I use the otterbox defender as my daily protective case. However, this screen shield is unfortunately incompatible with that case. Therefore I had to remove it in order to truly protect my Galaxy S4. I would however recommend using this screen protector with the aluminum home buttons also by spigen as it is a very high quality combination.

- best screen protector out there Review by aaron
Quality Design Value
I purchased the glas.tr when i had an iphone 5 and i loved it i dropped my screen and it cracked but it protected the screen underneath. So when i got my galaxy s4 i knew this screen protector was the way to go. The only thing is now they came out with the .15 mm screen protector which I want because im afraid if i get the slim armor view it will not close all the way with the glas.tr on it otherwise i'd buy it

- excellent....highly recommend to all Review by joseftx
Design Value Quality
I have had this screen protector for over a month now and all I can say is.....I totally love it!!!! It does reduces finger smudges and the screen is much easier to keep clean. Extra thin you really can't see a difference as far as thickness added to the phone....yes, if you carefully look you can see the glass but you have to look for it. Installation was easy as well. I read all the directions and watched the video as well and followed all directions carefully. I did get a couple of bubbles when I initially installed but as the guy in the video says, get the squeegee and apply some force and the bubbles come out.....all worked out perfect for me. If you look at my phone, it has a clean look and no bubbles what so ever!!! The glass does not interfere with any of the phones features. Just make sure before installing the glass the phone screen is cleaned very thoroughly....I looked at the screen at different angles to make sure there were no dust particles and absolutely clean.....after that you are ready to go!!! love love love this screen protector!!!!!
