Review: Caseology Glass Screen Protector

I’ve had my iPhone 12 Pro for a few days now. And even though though Apple claims that it has a “ceramic shield” that claims to make the screen four times more drop resistant, I am dubious of how scratch resistant the screen is. The iPhone 11 series for example was extremely prone to scratches on the screen despite the screen being more impact resistant. The reason for that is that as you make a screen more impact resistant, it becomes more prone to scratches. That made me seek out a tempered screen protector for it. The logic being that a tempered screen protector will protect the screen from scratches and add some additional impact resistance. To that end, I am using the Caseology Glass Screen Protector. Here’s what you get in the box:

You get two screen protectors, two cleaning wipes, a microfiber cloth, a squeegee, a sticker to remove lint and dust, and a installation tray to help you guide the screen protector in place. Caseology says that the screen protector has an oleophobic coating keeps smudges and fingerprints away and uses tempered glass for impact resistance. Installation couldn’t be easier. After cleaning the screen you put the phone in the installation tray like this:

Then you remove the back sticker from the screen protector and drop it into the installation tray:

You then use the squeegee to get rid of the bubbles which are the white spots that you see in the picture above. And that’s it. I did this when I took the iPhone out of the box and got a perfect result the first time out. By perfect I mean no bubbles and it was perfectly centered. As long as you take your time, you shouldn’t be able to screw this up. I should note that this screen protector is case friendly as it doesn’t cover the entire screen. Instead, it leaves a bit of a gap around the edge so that a case can be used without popping off the screen protector. Given that this screen protector is $14.99 USD, and you get two screen protectors as part of the deal, this is a must get so that you can protect the screen of your brand new iPhone 12 or 12 Pro.
