A couple of months back I tried out Spigen SGP’s tempered glass screen protector for the iPhone 4S. I was so impressed, that I’ve kept it on since. There’s nothing quite as reassuring as knowing you have an extra layer of glass in between the world and your iPhone display. So, when the company announced the GLAS.t for the iPad, I had to try it out.
The GLAS.t is a thin piece of glass with a layer of adhesive silicone on one side. The method of adhesion is great, and makes it relatively simple to apply, and ensures that you get away with barely any air bubbles at all. In the package you get an alcohol wipe, a microfiber cloth, a well protected sheet of glass and a squeegee.
To apply, you peel of the plastic sheet that covers the adhesive side, and align it with your iPad’s front. Then, you place it down (making sure it’s aligned correctly), then gently press down the center of the GLAS.t and watch as it gradually sticks to your screen. If you do have any air bubbles, squeeze them out using the squeegee. Any remaining promise to be gone within 48 hours.
I’ve only had mine on since yesterday, so I’ll reserve thorough judgement until later on in the week. However, if you get scratch anxiety, and want your display to be well protected, head over to Spigen’s store. The screen protector costs $69.99 and is compatible with the 2nd and 3rd generation iPads. It may seem a little pricey, but, having used the iPhone version for so long, it’s definitely worth the outlay.
