Patchworks ITG Silicate Glass Screen Protector Review – iPhone 6(s+)

 

Huh. The marketing fluff is right. The ITG is super smooth!

Patchworks ITG Silicate Glass Screen Protector Review – One of the best non-edge to edge screen protectors we’ve used

Today we’re going to review the ITG, the Impossible Tempered Glass, by Patchworks. How does it become Impossibly Tempered? Well, Patchworks chemically treats a piece of tempered glass and turns it into Silicate glass which according to Patchworks, is the strongest glass available. It sounds fluffy but from our perspective, its one of the best.

It doesn’t score as well as our current favourites which include the Cinder by Cupert, is on the same level as the Sir Lancelot Holy Grail and iLoome Screenmate Max mostly because it doesn’t cover the entire face of the iPhone. For our Patchworks ITG Silicate Glass Screen Protector Review we’ve given it a score of 4.2 Eh’s out of 5 which is an above average score for screen protectors.

Design – Lots of marketing fluff but it performs

Glass Screen Protector ITG Silicate Review - Guide Pin does make it easier

In terms of design, if the screen protector isn’t damage, can be re-applied. We didn’t have any issues with the dust removal and bubbling isn’t any issue. The screen protector fits only the touchable area so you need to be very careful during installation though Patchworks does include a installation tool which helps a lot. They also include an extra large dust removal sticker which is really nice.

The screen protector feels thicker than others as the edges aren’t rounded so you definitely know where the protector ends on your iPhone. These sharp edges also resulted in bits of dust/debris getting caught which isn’t great. The edges of the screen protector, despite being sharp, didn’t chip during our usage period which adds to Patchworks strongest glass claim.

Protection – Bigger and tougher than most cases

Glass Screen Protector ITG Silicate Review - How strong is it?

In terms of protection, this screen protector will hold up against keys and coins though the packaging doesn’t have a hardness rating.

For impact protection, the ITG screen protector will do well against blunt impacts. This screen protector is so strong that there is a good chance that your iPhone would be deformed from a blunt impact before the ITG would break.

Functionality – No issues here

Glass Screen Protector ITG Silicate Review - Sharp edges

The best part of the ITG is functionality of the iPhone under the screen protector. Viewability of the screen protector is excellent. The marketing fluff on the box says that the transparency of the glass is 93.7% which apparently is better than quality eye glasses? We’ll be honest, we have a hard time seeing the improved transparency of the ITG when compared to other screen protectors.

The best part of this product is the coating that Patchwork uses. The fingerprint resistance seems to work better than other screen protectors and this feature is something that Patchwork seems proud of since they use an air vacuum dry-type process. This process also makes the screen protector incredibly smooth which is really nice. The combination of improved fingerprint resistance and super smoothness makes the ITG a joy to use on an iPhone.

    Great review. I just noticed on their website, they have an edge to edge version.

    I wonder if it will be as good. I want their privacy glass now, based on your review.
