The iPhone's glass screen may be made of Corning's advanced Gorilla Glass, but, contrary to Steve Jobs' assertion, that doesn't mean it is scratch proof. Many products exist to solve this problem, including ZAGG's InvisiShield or rugged cases like Otterbox's Defender. Both solutions work well, but the feel of screen protector films bother some users, and though the Otterbox solidly protects the iPhone, it hardly maintains the svelte qualities that Jony Ive and his team worked so hard to create.

As an alternative, Spigen has released a tempered glass screen protector to give an added layer of protection to the iPhone 4S. The 0.4mm thick glass protector completely covers the front glass of the iPhone, protecting it from damage and scratches. Spigen claims the glass is specially reinforced to increase shock absorbency and is three times stronger than standard protective PET film. As it's tempered glass, if broken, it breaks into smaller pieces that aren't sharp.


The SGP GLAS.t iPhone 4 Screen Protector is available for $27.99 plus shipping on Spigen's website.

I've had my iPhone 4 for over a year now and the glass still isn't scratched. As long as you don't abuse your phone this really isn't an issue. The aluminum band, on the other hand, is all scratched up :(

My brother has dropped his iPhone on few occasions and the glass broke.. In most cases I assume If you take care if it you'll be good..

But I don't understand why Apple does not use gorilla glass on their phones..?

I have never though any kind of a screen protector was a good idea. As the guy at the Apple Store told me, the iPhone has the highest quality display out of any mobile device in the world. No matter how clear the protector is, it will always distort that at least a little bit, ruining the point of the retina display. As far as the tiny scratches people are getting on their phone, the front screen rarely scratches and when it does, its so small you can hardly tell when the phone is off and you can't tell at all when it is turned on. For the scratches on the back, you can pop a case on, or if your like me and have no case, if it somehow gets scratched you can get the back replaced by Apple for about the same cost as this screen protector.

The real problem with iOS screens is getting them smashed, and no screen protector would ever stop that (especially a glass one).

Gorilla glass is just a brand name for chemically strengthened glass. Apple doesn't have to have gorilla glass to have the same product
