ProGlass Tempered Glass Screen Protector For iPhone [Review]

I have always used ZAGG invisibleSHIELD screen protectors, since the day I purchased my first iPod and iPhone back in 2006-2007. ZAGG was the first company to introduce the polyurethane material to protect gadgets and bring this product to the CE space. Also, my Dad worked for them when they were a new company and spent 10 years of his career with them. I worked there as well but only for a few years, so I guess that has contributed to the loyalty. Since launching a blog, I have wanted to be more adventurous and willing to try new products. I recently switched back to iPhone, so I had to go through the process of finding a screen protector and case for it. I was going to do a series of product tests; my intention was to go to Walmart and find the cheapest glass screen protector and then if it completely failed then I would try a product that was a step up and so forth. To my surprise, the first one I bought was actually pretty good. I purchased the ProGlass Tempered Glass Screen Protector and haven’t been disappointed.

There are definitely pros and cons to this product but I will admit that the pros outweigh the cons. Below are the things that I like about the product and the things that I dislike about the product.

The things that I like

  • Price ($8.98-$9.99)
  • Easy install
  • Clean look after install
  • Contents in packaging (see below for details)
  • Quality. It’s not just a cheap piece of tempered glass, I could tell while installing.

The things that I dislike

  • Warranty. They mention they have a replacement guarantee but its not outlined very clearly, so there may be some hoops to jump through. Also, you don’t have the luxury of going to a store or a mall kiosk for a replacement.
  • Case friendly design. I have a case on my phone and there are still several millimeters between the screen protector and case. I am pretty particular with my technology, so this may not bother any one else. (ProGlass does offer a full screen protector but is only available online)

As you can see, there aren’t a lot of cons with this product. Since the product is only $9-$10 to purchase, I don’t even expect a lifetime warranty. If it breaks or scratches in 6 months, I would probably just go buy a new one, to be honest. Also, the design is not the end of the world, if it ends up bugging me too much then I will order a full screen protector from their website but so far it hasn’t set off my OCD.

At the end of the day, I recommend the ProGlass product and would encourage you to give it a try. Below are some photos of the packaging contents and installation tools.

I didn’t use the dust stickers at all but I really liked the cloth and alcohol wipe. The red applicator didn’t really help to install the product but it may be because I have experience installing this type of product.

The one tip that I would recommend, that I don’t believe they mentioned, is once you peel the backing off of the glass screen protector keep the adhesive side facing down, so dust that is in the air doesn’t fall on the adhesive side.

Overall, this product is definitely worth a purchase. I am glad that I came across it and so far it has exceeded my expectations. Try it out and let me know what you think.
