Cases and screen protectors come by the handfuls for smartphone but today we some new and unique screen protectors and cases from the company Spigen. No longer do you need to rely on a cheap thin screen protector. With Spigen you cover that large and precious smartphone screen with the next best thing -- another layer of hardened tempered glass. Below you'll see our hands-on video, thoughts, and installation on the GLAS.t screen protector for the Galaxy Note.

Spigen offers accessories for many devices but today we are focusing on the Samsung Galaxy Note. Along with multiple ultra thin cases you'll see in the video below is their Capsule Series that is a thicker, more sturdy case for added protection. Then we also have the most impressive of their selection in the GLAS.t screen protector. Many covers are cheap, plastic, or other materials that don't stand the test of time. With the Spigen GLAS.t you actually add an additional layer of strengthened glass to the device for ultimate protection.

The sizes vary but as shown above they are so thin it's hardly noticeable. for the Galaxy Note this 0.04mm thick hardened glass will go on with ease, and protect that precious 5.3" screen from damages. If you do manage to get a scratch, it will be on the Spigen and not your actually screen. This is what we'd call a premium screen protector. Check out our hands-on details and installation video below to see just how nice, and simple the GLAS.t really is.

Next up we wanted to share a few of the awesome cases since they were nice enough to send a few other. They have tons of options, types, colors and more that will really cater to anyone's needs. The Ultra Thin series are $24.99 and come in many different colors are include the usual screen protector (not a GLAS.t) and you can see those in the video.

Then they offer the Capsule series that are slightly thicker and more durable for those harder on their devices, or want that extra protection. The Capsule series is the same price of $24.99 and come in multiple colors. We got white but they also have red, blue, black, glossy black, yellow, and others.

The cases are well built and nicely designed. They fit neatly around all the ports and camera slots and even wrap over the screen enough to add protection should you drop it face first. If you've heard of TPU cases than you'll know what to expect with these. This is a TPU case at its finest. Spigen also offers multiple leather cases as shown in the video below. The Wallet series has slots for credit cards and other things for the business minded individual and start at $44.99. Once I put the phone inside the Leather wallet series I had a hard time getting it out, a good sign that it wont fall out on accident so these are excellent cases.

Overall I was extremely impressed by both the quality, and the feel of all their cases although the fake leather wasn't my favorite because it slightly makes the device too large. I like my phones as thin as possible and the Ultra Thin series was by far my favorite (and cheapest). If anything from Spigen interests you feel free to check out www.spigen.com to get your own.

       Have you used a GLAS.t before?

      The Zagg solution has pits in it after using the S-Pen. Not a good solution for phones with a stylus. Too much writing friction, too.

    Why is that one corner unprotected?

    Zagg Invisible Shield is a piece of paper compared to the GLAS.t. I used the Zagg Invisible Shield on my iPhone and after going through two of them, it still not right. I use the GLAS.t on my RAZR and it was sooooooooooooooo easy to put on. I don’t see why I wouldn’t even  bothered with the Zagg Invisible Shield

    Zagg screen protectors are not so much appreciated by their users. Instead, SGP Ultra Crystal protectors are very popular among all the Steinheil Series protectors for the GNote, like is in the review:

    I’ve used it.  
    IT was great for the first days….then little bubbles showed up and spread all over after 20 to 30 days and the customer service is horrible.  

    They will even ask if you’d purchase another at a discount.  They do not stand behind their products.

    Spigen has the worst customer service in ecommerce that I have
    encountered in years. They charged my cc, sent an email confirmation and
    a week later when my product had not shipped, I contacted them.
    Apparently my purchase was on hold because I chose the option to have it
    sent to an address other than my billing address. Because of this they
    marked it as fraud….It didn’t stop them from charging my credit card.
    They asked me to send a photo of my card..ridiculous! They had already
    charged it, they just had not sent my product. Beware of these guys.
