    Interesting. I've never heard of tempered glass screen protectors, but then again, I don't use screen protectors anymore (only used them very sparingly back when I was using my iPhone). I'm sure other users will find your review helpful.

    I've looked at Tempered Glass screen protectors, but not tried one yet.

    Seems they will shatter (just the overlay) and peel off, leaving the actual screen undamaged. Also they are very, very scratch resistant. Plus they cover the entire screen - no cut outs for sensors. The reason I haven't tried one yet is that I tend to flip through phones somewhat quickly. It seems like the type of thing to use when you know that the phone you have is the one you will still have for 2+ years...

    ​Look forward to the review.

    I've installed couple of them on, only seen people buy them for the Note 3 though. They are surprisingly really really nice! You don't even know its there! I've been wanting one for my Icon.

    In the Amazon Description it says: "Explosion-proof". I hope OP tests this in their review.

    Just got the screen protector in the mail today. I didn't install it yet, but my initial opinion isn't very optimistic.

    To be fair, it is packaged very well, and looks to be a quality product. Where it immediately goes downhill is the size. There is about an 1/8 inch gap left exposed on the screen. I'm sure this is due to the rounded edges of the 925's screen, but for me it is an instant negative. I'm sure on other phones with completely flat screens, its a no brainer winner, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. With the 925, I'm not even sure I want to install it.

    I've installed the screen protector, and it feels and looks really, really, good! Like I mentioned in the previous post though, I am having a hard time overlooking the 1/8 inch border it leaves exposed around the edge of the screen.

    It's funny how one of the features that makes this phone so beautiful, is also the feature that is hard to protect and still retain its original look.

    Can you get a picture showing the gap? Is it 1/8" on every edge? That would be a lot. (3.175 mm)

    You said it feels "really, really, good!" I imagine it would feel great as it is glass not plastic like most screen protectors.

    ​LOL, since you are the guinea pig for us... Throw it in your pocket with your keys and see if it scratches up. :p

    Tempered Glass Screen protectors are worth the money. There was a pretty cool review of an inadvertent drop of a S5 over at AndroidCentral.
    In case you're wondering how tough the S5 is - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    OK, just pulled the trigger on this one. A bit more when shipping is added in, but no slow boat from China.

    You can clearly see the small border that the tempered glass doesn't cover.

    I ordered one some time back. Its nice, except it is NOT contoured to the curve of the screen. This means there is about an 1/8" bubble at the edge, on my 1520. I took it off. It allowed debris and dust in and caused my case to bulge.

    I think that is what the gap on Cyterio's protector is for. The edge of a case.

    ​When mine comes in and gets installed I'll take a pic.

    Oh okay I see what you are talking about. How responsive is the screen when you press buttons?

    It's very responsive, can't tell the difference between using the tempered glass or using the phone without anything.

    I have it and it's awesome! No finger prints, perfect colours. I have never cleaned the screen since when I've bought it.

    On YouTube there are any number of videos showing how tough and scratch resistant the material is.

    I have one from Zagg coming in the mail but its not a tempered glass screen protector. After reading these forums I am having second thoughts about the one I ordered from Zagg and I want a tempered glass screen protector now I'm debating between these two...

    Absolutely I'll provide feedback once it is in and installed. I'll post a pic as well. I'm betting that my case will really take up the slack where Cyterio's is showing around the edge.

    I didn't like what Cyterio said about shipping time. That slow boat from china takes a long while and you risk customs delays on entry. I got an extended battery from Hong Kong once. Great product. Horrible delivery time.

    Look at the info cards of each in the photos. They both say virtually the same thing. Both are copyright same date by same company. I would bet they are identical. The Spartan is $1.00 more...
