Default Screen Protector Glass Slim [GLAS.t NANO SLIM] (0.15mm)

so i put this
SPIGEN SGP Samsung Galaxy S4 Screen Protector Glass Slim [GLAS.t NANO SLIM] (0.15mm) Thin Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Galaxy S IV Galaxy SIV i9500



on my phone on Friday. It installed nice, and it feels soooo smooth. I love the way it feels. What i dont like, is it goes over my camera. So it leaves all my photos with a halo effect, and dull effect. You can see it, in the trees where the sun is shining through in the pic.


Though about taking up the edge, and cutting it down, but I dont think I will, i will replace it with something else before I do that.

Thanks for posting that.
I've been wanting to get a Glas.tr for mine, but now that you've stated it covers the camera and is causing problems, I just might not go through with the purchase.

I know you said you like the smooth surface of it,
but how does it handle with scratches???
All of the plastic screen protectors that I've used get scratched just by cleaning the dang screen.
Even when using a micro fiber cloth or eye glasses cloth, I still get scratches while cleaning.
Thats really starting to piss me off.

Was the install easy?
Any problems with dust getting caught underneath or bubble that don't want to come out?

It was the easiest and cleanest install of a screen protector i ever did.

Ive only had it on a week, but not one scratch. It is very resistant, the most ive ever seen in a screen protector.

I have 2 main complaints. The covering of the camera (had i known, i would of cut it BEFORE the install, and it would of been fine im guessing)

Its thick compared to most others. So when you swipe, etc...its noticable.

You can cut the glass without it shattering or spidering out?

What do you mean, when you swipe its noticeable?
The physical thickness, or is it causing some sort of screen interference or lag?

I would say yes. It doesnt feel like glass. Its very flexible...I would say its some kind of plastic/glass composite...by holding it, you wouldnt know it was glass. (i question what it actually is, I was surprised by this too)

It doesnt cause any issue with the phone at all, its just noticable on your finger..and feels funny/weird/odd. Ive gotten used to not putting my finger all the way to the edge now, so I dont catch it.

Oh...
I see what you are saying about the swiping thing now.
Thanks for clarifying that one.

Hmm....
I don't know about cutting into that thing though.
I had seen a video somewhere of a Spigen Glas that was dropped.
It protected the screen on the phone just fine, but it shattered into itself just like a car windshield would in moderate accident.
I had also heard a similar story from another forum member that this had happened,
so I'm not too sure if cutting it would turn out so well.
I think I'm going to call them first and see if it can be done, just to be on the safe side.
If it can...great! That would solve the camera issue.

That might make a difference.

Tried to find a contact number for those guys,
and of course there isn't one. I really hate company's like that. (email only)
So I sent them an email....
probably won't hear nothing back for days and days....
I asked them if "any" of the tempered glass protectors could be trimmed,
so that should cover all bases from the thickest to the thinnest, we'll see.
