Review: Spigen iPhone 14 Pro Screen Protector EZ FIT GLAS.tR 

When Apple shipped the iPhone 12 series, they brought forward “Ceramic Shield” to make the screen far more shatter resistant. However shatter resistance is inversely proportional to scratch resistance. In other words, your new and really expensive iPhone 14 has a screen that is more likely to scratch. Which means that you need a screen protector. That’s where the Spigen iPhone 14 Pro Screen Protector EZ FIT GLAS.tR comes in. Because replacing a screen protector is cheap. Replacing a screen is expensive.

Inside the box you get two screen protectors, a pack of screen cleaning wipes, microfibre cloth, dust removal tape, a squeegee, and instructions. The cool thing about this screen protector is that it is built into the tray which is exactly sized for your iPhone.

All of this means that installation should be pretty straightforward. And it is. Here’s what you do: 

  • First you need to remove your old screen protector if you have one and use one of the screen cleaning wipes to clean the screen. Then use the dust removal tape to remove any dust that’s left on the screen. 
  • Next is to put the installation tray on the screen after removing the backing tape on the screen protector.
  • Then you need to slide your finger up and down the channel in the middle of the screen protector to get rid of as many bubbles as possible.
  • Wait 30 seconds then pull the tab off. 
  • Then you remove the front tape and use the squeegee to get rid of any remaining bubbles. In my case there were a few.

Once you do that, you can declare victory and have a beer. Because if all goes right, you will get this result:

Unlike some of Spigen’s other screen protectors, this one covers the entire screen including the “Dynamic Island” which has the Face ID sensors. But it didn’t seem to affect Face ID in any way. You’ll also note that it has a tiny cutout for the speaker at the top of the phone.

One other thing that you should note is that this screen protector is not an edge to edge screen protector. That’s because it’s designed to be used with cases as an edge to edge screen protector may pop off if you use a case with it. I will be reviewing a number of cases this week so I’ll let you know if any of those cases become an issue with this screen protector.

The last thing that I note is that thus far, this screen protector seems to resist smudges and fingerprints, is easy to clean, and interacting with it doesn’t feel any different. All of which is a good thing. Now I didn’t test scratching it and seeing if it survives an impact. That’s because I would argue most of these screen protectors advertise 9H hardness as this one does and they tend to scratch with a 6 or 7 pick on the MOHS scale which is pretty tough. So any testing in this regard in my opinion is kind of irrelevant as you will get a decent amount of protection out of it as long as you don’t abuse it as long as you don’t buy something that’s too low on the food chain. Which this one is not. 

The Spigen EZ FIT GLAS.tR SLIM Screen Protector For The iPhone 14 Pro goes for $34.99 USD. It’s relatively easy to install, gives you great clarity, and should give you the protection that you need for the screen of your new iPhone 14 Pro.
