Screen protectors for smartphones are very popular especially with expensive smartphones like iPhone 5, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, et al. The screen protectors protect the screen of the smartphone from scratches and possible cracks, and Seidio's Vitro glass screen protector iPhone 5 is one of the glass screen protectors available in the market.
The glass screen protector is slightly thicker than the plastic protectors available in the market. As the protector covers only the screen, the back of the smartphone remains exposed to potential scratches.
"Seidio's VITREO is a tempered glass material that utilizes advanced technology to shield and protect your Apple iPhone 5's screen. Made from a high grade glass with a 9H hardness rating, VITREO is shatterproof, allowing it to absorb impact and prevent damage from occurring to your screen. The VITREO surface feels just like the device's screen without interfering with touch sensitivity or optical clarity while giving you an extraordinary level of protection. The design and lightweight material will provide peace of mind no matter what comes in contact with your device," states Seidio's online store.
The protector is made of high grade tempered glass with a 9H hardness rating, which prevents damage in the event of scratches and abrasions. The protector has tapered (rounded) edges providing a premium and enhanced profile the iPhone 5.
The VITREO protector is engineered to reinforce the strength of the critical points of impact, which results in prolonged durability. The protector has oleophobic coating which repels marks and smudges from the screen and reduces the appearance of fingerprints.
The protector's full panel protects the entire screen of the handset without leaving any portion exposed to damage. Users still get the same sensitivity of the touchscreen and the optical clarity of the smartphone.
Seidio claims that the protector is easy to install without bubbling and lifting. What's more, the protector is only 0.55mm (0.02inch) thin. The protector is available for $39.95 directly from Seidio's online store.
