Product Review (submitted on June 27, 2013):
I tried this protector after using one of Spigen's film protectors for over a year and half. I really liked the film protector, but wanted to give the glass protector a try. There is no comparison in terms of feel and responsiveness; it's like using a naked screen. There are, however, a couple of important downsides in addition to the high cost. First, installation is both easier and harder. Easier in that it is much easier to position a rigid piece of glass than flexible film, and until you press down and start the adhering process, there's a bit of give that allows you to position the protector precisely. But much harder in that the rigidity of the protector means that ANY piece of dust will show up as a nice circle/blemish because it will keep the protector from adhering to the screen. (I had one piece of dust, but fortunately at the top edge, so just cosmetic.) So you really have to make sure that the screen is perfectly clean, and then move fast to get the protector on. Also, the protector is thick, thick enough that even with a Candyshell case with a nice lip, the protector is almost flush with the lip. That reduces the protection of the case, and I can see why using just the protector without a case would be problem. Looks like Spigen has improved the new protectors so they are half the thickness, but unlikely that product is going to be introduced for the 4/4S.
