I’m not a big fan of screen protectors; partly because they’re real pain in the ass to apply, and partly because I’ve never felt like they really added much to the equation.

But if there was ever a screen protector to get me to change my mind, its Tech21‘s new Impact Shield. The company demoed its new protector for me over Skype recently, and I came away thoroughly stunned: The protector has a strange, almost magical way of protecting the  [Read More...]

I have a love-hate relationship with Spigen’s line-up of Glas.T screen protectors.

On the one hand, they just feel great. If there’s any truth to the notion that screen protectors are to smartphones what prophylactics are to sex, the Glas.t feels like wearing nothing at all. The extra millimeters of glass help protect your screen from scratches, but still  [Read More...]

The Spigen GLAS.t for the iPhone 5: it’s almost like wearing nothing at all!

Screen protectors aren’t sexy or glamorous.
