When I first heard of a tempered glass screen protector, I was kinda worried. How would a piece of glass on top of the regular screen look and feel? I had always been a classic plastic film screen protector user. Well, was I taken back by surprise. The Ghost Glass screen protector for the BlackBerry Z10 is made of premium tempered glass, and I would say elevates the touch screen experience. It went on really easy. Because it was simply a piece of glass there was NO AIR BUBBLES. It was a seamless install, MIME USA thought ahead. They give you a piece of plastic film to to put on your screen first, that you peel off, removing all dust or lint that may be on the device. Once on,there is no waiting. You can start using the device right away, and within 10 minutes I knew I was never going to be using a generic plastic film protector again.
The clean glass feeling, and the clarity of the screen shine through right away. I have ‘accidentally’ dropped the device a few times and the glass did not chip or crack. I also took a small screwdriver and repeatedly tapped the glass all over numerous times with varied degrees of strength, and the Ghost Glass didn’t even chip! Now many of you might be thinking if it will increase the depth of the glass, or get in the way of the bezel gestures…. well it doesn’t. The screen protector is less than 1 mm thick, and the edges are beveled, so it almost seamlessly blends in to the edges of the Z10. The one thing that I did notice though, that some of my full protection cases fit a little too snug for my liking, because I swap batteries 2-3 times a day, I had to leave them off and go with classic soft case.
Now 3 weeks in to using the Ghost Glass on my Z10 I do have one little chip on the edge. I was in a hurry and threw my pocket knife, keys, and Z10 in one pocket. After running errands for a few hours, I pulled out the device and have the most minute chip off the edge. It never spread or got worse. It just really shows how much engineering goes in to the development of the glass.
I would recommend the Ghost Glass to anyone looking to get maximum coverage on their device. MIME USA makes them for many different devices, and are reasonably priced. They also have a really good lifetime warranty, if you crack your glass simply send it back and purchase a new one at 40% MSRP. Now it isn’t FREE, but still a 60% discount is great. Grab one for yourself today for low price of $24.95, and they are offering FREE shipping on all USA orders right now!
