5.0 out of 5 starsStupid simple application and NO bubbling #CustomerForLife
November 30, 2018
UPDATE: After a few weeks of use I dropped my phone from about one foot but it hit the metal edge of a piece of furniture and the screen protector cracked. It did its job! It protected my phone and I applied a new one in just a few minutes (SEE MY VIDEO FOR INSTALLATION). A total bargain for 3 of these. Keep them in case this happens to you.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I used a glass screen protector once on a different phone and it was a pain to install and broke two minutes later when I put on my case.
These were a totally different story. First, the greatest problem with these type of protectors is installation. Installing these is drop dead SIMPLE. The included guide snaps over your phone in such a way that it's nearly impossible to screw it up.
Second, it has great instructions about how to peel off the plastic layer and then use the sticky tab to hold the glass in place inside the frame and place it perfectly.
Last, it literally sucks itself onto my phone. I was so worried about bubbles but there were none.
Then I took it off because I thought I was going to have to return my phone (it locked up and I didn't know how to do a hard reset with the new button combo on the XR). So taking it off was really simple. I left it upside down while I took my phone in and when I go it fixed I brought it home and put the protector back on with the included extras sticky tabs and plastic guide. Just as easy as the first time.
I have no idea what to do with the other two glass covers they included. Maybe I'll find some friends with XR's and put them in their phones.
The XDesign Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector is the brand that you should stick with. Not only is the quality of the glass top notch, but the included installation frame make installing the screen protector a snap. The protectors come with a lifetime warranty and XDesign makes it super easy to get a free replacement.
I would give perfect scores if not for one small change they should make. This product makes applying a screen protector super easy with their included guide mechanism that helps you place it. If you place the screen protector against the top edge everything works out perfectly and it aligns really well all the way around on my iPhone XR. But when I went to do my second one for my wife’s iPhone XR I ended up putting it next to the bottom edge which actually overhangs and I had to Peel it off and try again which happened again. I didn’t realized I was in placing it next to the top edge which then worked fine but that was my third try for her screen protector. So the manufacture needs to tell you this or make their guide mechanism shorter for the IPhone XR.
Once I got the top edge aligned on one end I laid the protector sheet down and touched the top edge so it started to adhere there. Then it was like an ocean wave it’s self adhered clear to the other end by itself with no bubbles whatsoever. Follow their instructions on the pre-cleaning steps and you’ll do fine. Make sure you’re in a clean area and no dust flying around.
As for the product itself it looks great and is protecting from scratches as intended. We will see after a year if it’s done it’s job at protecting the surface of my iPhone.
Oh my goodness! I am shocked at how easy this was to install on both my husbands and my phone. It comes with a guide that fits right over your phone and you just align the screen protector on top and it’s PERCECTLY PLACED!!!!!! I am so pleased! If we ever need another this is what we will buy. 😍
Good professional product which was easy to install using included plastic frame which fits over the phone screen. Application process was smooth and took little time. It does not cover entire screen due to the curved surfaces of the screem. Some area is left out but overall it is a good coverage. Screen does collect fingerprints incessantly like any glass protector. However, phone seems to be well protected.
A small white area has appeared near top right corner. This doesn't affect visibility when the phone is on. However, if it grows, I may need to replace the protector with another. Good that this was a 3 pack.
This is probably my 5th or 6th Caseology case, the previous ones all the Parallax series that I loved and have kept my family's phones safe for the last 2-3 years. If the Parallax was available for the iPhone Xr I would have bought it. This case appears to be well built and no doubt it will protect the phone, but as others have mentioned the ridge near the bottom is sharp and cuts into your pinky while holding the phone. I had to grind it down with a nail file but now it is discolored where the finish was removed. Overall satisfied that this will protect the phone, but it is slightly more bulky than I expected and I really wish I could have gotten a Parallax series instead.
I did a lot of research before buying this screen protector for my new iPhone XR. This isn't my first iPhone and I've had quite a few screen protectors in the past. I read a lot of reviews and I take them all with a grain of salt. One of the biggest influences for my decision to purchase this screen protector was the bracket that was included to help installation. The bracket was a great help and I was able to place the glass on the iPhone on the first try and it was perfectly aligned. There were very few bubbles and it took minimal work to get said bubbles out.
The glass looks great on the screen and there are no gaps on the edges. I've had screen protectors that didn't fit properly and even a small gap becomes a collection for dust. This protector doesn't interfere with the appearance or the functionality of the screen. No problem with touch input whatsoever! It also wipes clean very easily with any soft non scratch cloth. I cannot speak about it's durability yet as I haven't dropped the phone. I also have an OtterBox Commuter series case, and it fits perfectly. The lip of the case is still taller than the glass itself which is a good thing and how the case was designed. I have had this screen protector on my iPhone XR since it has come out of the box 1 month ago, and I'm very satisfied with my decision to purchase the XDesign product. I would recommend this product to my family and friends.
The installation is easy if you follow the instructions, read the installation instructions completely before starting the installation. There is a note at the end of the instructions to make sure the screen protector is snuggly against the top of the installation frame. Make sure the iPhone screen is clean before placing the protector on the phone, what ever is on the screen will be trapped there until another protector is put on. The back of the screen protector is slightly tacky so be careful after removing the protective skin, any dust or finger prints will stick to the tacky back of the protector. I would recommend making sure the area where you are working on the iPhone, is clean and no fans are on so the chance of dust entrapment is minimized. Make sure not to touch the back of the screen protector it is slightly tacky and will hold finger prints. There is a slight gap along the edge of the screen protector and the actual screen of the iPhone XR, about 1 to 2 mm. The protector is clear and easy to clean of finger prints on the top side. With a little care during installation this looks like an excellent product, if an installation goes bad there are two extra screen protectors (three are in the box) for a second and third attempt at installation.
What a great setup jig that is included with the screens. It makes it foolproof to place the screen perfectly. By far the easiest screen install that I have ever done for any device. I bought this for an iPhone XR and was a little concerned about the lack of a home button as a guide for getting the screen on straight. The open frame that is included snaps onto the front of the phone and has no wiggle room to place the screen on crooked. Just insert the screen inside the frame quickly to avoid dust and press in the middle. You only have to worry initially about keeping one end of the glass pressed against the inside edge of the frame to keep it registered in the proper orientation. Very quick and quick is good.
