Simple Snap iPhone glass cover


The Simple Snap is, without a doubt, the simplest and best screen protector I have ever used. It has an ingenious application method that resulted in the a bubble-free glass cover, on the first try, in less than two minutes. If you’re worried about screen damage for your electronics, this is the one.

The tempered glass cover is oil-resistant and anti-microbial, and slips out of the cardboard sheath in a plastic harness that’s shaped to fit perfectly over your device. Clean the screen (with the included cloth), expose the adhesive side and fit the harness to your iPhone, then just press down using the plastic widget (also included). Because of the harness and because the cover is made of glass (not more flexible plastic), you’ll have few bubbles to start with, and any that do come up will be easy to push away. Then you just remove the harness and the bit of plastic attached to the front of the screen.

The tempered glass resisted scratches, whether I was carrying my iPhone in a pocket with my keys, or actively trying to scratch it with the edge of a nail file as a test. It’s perfectly clear, and as an added bonus, because it’s fitted so tightly to the harness, the cover lines up to expose the home button, the speaker for the phone, and the front-facing camera.

If you want a protective screen for your iPhone (or any number of other devices), the Simple Snap not only provides scratch-proofing, but an idiot-proof application that will remove any chance of bubbles.

    This does look like an easy to install screen protector, however it doesn’t solve the issue of a full edge to edge screen protector for the iphone 6 or iphone 6 plus – This company has a solution for the curved screen – check them out

    well i agree with rob here..curved edges are a huge problem but no matter what i do there still dust trapped inside the glass screen..
