Screen protectors are something iPhone owners either love or hate. Myself, I’m very careful with my screen. I hate it when I get the smallest scratch or mark, so I make sure to always have some sort of screen shield on my phone. Those who dislike screen protectors often say they aren’t needed or hate the way they make the screen feel.
Enter Belkin’s newest screen protector – the TrueClear InvisiGlass. It was just released today, and is made of 100% flexible glass. It’s not rigid like other glass screen protectors, so you’re not worried about breaking it if it bends too much or you drop it. You also don’t have to worry about getting any chipped corners.
I’ve had it on my iPhone 5 for a week now, and I’m very impressed with not only the feel of the screen protector on my phone, but the clarity of my iPhones screen. Here’s my Belkin TrueClear InvisiGlass install and review video.
Belkin claims its newest screen protector is 9 times stronger than the competitions and 2.5 times smoother than plastic screen protectors
It has stood up to every day use extremely well. A week of being in my pocket with keys and coins, and there’s no sign of any little marks or scratches. As I mentioned in my video, it also stood up to me running a plastic card over the screen as I tried to get some bubbles out. With other screen shields I’ve used, doing this has left tiny scratches.
Speaking of the installation, I had a tough time, but I’ve never been good at dry installs. I know that if the screen shield isn’t lining up properly I can just take it off and try again, but I find the more times I do this, the more dust or other small stuff gets on the screen and the more the screen shield loses its adhesiveness. I much prefer screen shields that require you to spray them. That way I can move them around if they aren’t lined up properly.
That being said, once I had the screen protector on, I’m not sure I can go back to using anything else, and I think you’ll feel the same way. The feel of the InvisiGlass on the phone is incredible. It actually feels like you don’t have anything covering the screen. I thought maybe I was over selling the difference in feel between the InvisiGlass and other screen shields, but when I let other people feel it, they too were blown away.
Not only does it feel great, but the clarity of the iPhones screen with the InvisiGlass on is just as impressive. It wasn’t until I compared my iPhone with the InvisiGlass against my wife’s iPhone with a different HD screen shield on it that I noticed what a difference there was. With the InvisiGlass on, my screen is crystal clear and it looks as though everything is just a little crisper.
Belkin’s really up’d the game when it comes to screen protectors with its TrueClear InvisiGlass. I can honestly say this is the best screen shield I’ve ever used. If you don’t believe me, give it a try. I’ll bet you’ll have a hard time going back to anything else.
