I’ve cracked the display of more phones than I’m willing to admit, which is why when I found out that there were glass screen protectors, I...

One of my favorite features of the Galaxy S III is the new and improved lock screen. With the latest version of TouchWiz, Samsung has not only included some key shortcut spots on the lock screen, they have also given you the ability to customize them and add your own selection of app shortcuts. First–if you haven’t already–disable your lockscreen security,...

If you were like me and lost the little removal tool included with your Spigen Glas screen protector, you might be asking yourself, “how do I remove this extremely thin layer of glass glued to my display?” Well since you are here now, you want some answers right? The solution is actually quite simple–all you need is a very thin, relatively stiff piece...

Well after 7+ months of usage, this is what’s left of the SGP Glas for the Samsung Galaxy S II: To the casual passerby, it appears my Galaxy S II’s display has been thoroughly mangled: Top left corner I must have dropped my phone as least a dozen times at this point.

The Samsung Galaxy S line has been the gold standard for Android devices and its Super AMOLED display has set the bar high. The original 4 inch...

If you want to protect your Samsung Galaxy S II from prying eyes and/or hands, try setting up a security barrier on your unlock screen. To activate the Android screen lock, navigate to Menu > Settings > Location and security Choose “Set up screen lock” and then select which type you would like. Pattern allows you to raw a pattern on a 3×3 grid,...

Screen protectors certainly have come a long way since the days of thick, user-cut, adhesive backed films that easily lifted and dog-eared at the corners, creating an eyesore that nearly defeated its purpose of keeping the display in like-new condition. Nowadays we have a host of high-tech screen protectors that reduce glare, prevent fingerprints and protect from scratch...
