Rather than covering the screen in a hard to apply plastic screen protector, Spigen offers a chemically strengthened glass screen protector that sits on top of your screen, providing protection from scratches and even from drops. We’ve heard reports from other tech writers that the GLAS-t screen protectors have protected their devices from a drop to concrete.

The glass screen protectors sit flush to the scree and don’t impede touch sensitivity. Because the protector is made of glass, it feels just like swiping on a phone’s display.

The older GLAS-t models would often shatter during a drop, and while it saved the iPhone or Galaxy Note from destruction, it was the end for the screen protector.

The GLAS-tR features rounded corners which Spigen claims provide a better protection and durability. The company says the new screen protectors will better survive drops, protecting the iPhone, but not breaking. Spigen may bring the GLAS-tR screen protectors to the Galaxy Note and to newer devices like the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.
