I know what you are thinking, what can I possibly say about a screen protector in a review? Spoiler alert! It protects the screen. Actually it does more than that. Every now and then I pick up an accessory for my iPhone and I feel obligated to tell everyone how great it is. Pure is that accessory.
I ended up back with the iPhone 5 and this time I decided to go with white. After owning the black/slate colorway, I noticed it was vulnerable to nicks and scratches because of the anodized aluminum body. My main goal was to get an iPhone that I can rock naked. The phone, not me. Apple's design team worked hard to make a beautiful device and I find it hard to cover it up with a case.
With that said, I still needed some sort of protection for the screen. I can deal with normal wear and tear on my iPhone's body but scratches on a screen hit a nerve on my OCD bone. This is where the Pure shines. Not only is it a screen protector, it's made out of tempered glass. The glass is classified with a hardness of 8H+ which means that it can take a beating if not more than your iPhone's regular screen. You also get the normal feel of a glass screen without the sacrifice of screen clarity and quality. This is the future of screen protectors. SGP was the first with the Glas.t protectors and they were a hit. Nobody wants to cover their beautiful glass display with a plastic screen protector. When you really think about it, why would we protect something that has a hardness tolerance less than what it's protecting. Glass on glass only makes sense.
You are probably asking, why did I go with Bodyguardz over the other brands. It's simple. Bodyguardz offers a advantages replacement program. It is similar to what Zagg does with their invisible shield but Bodyguardz simply allows you to buy another protector at a fraction of the price. For example, I spent $34 on the Pure for the iPhone 5. If I wanted to order another one, I would only spend about $13. This comes in handy just in case you need another one for any reason. This program is the single reason why I encourage this over the SGP version.
The screen protector is quite thick. This means that your home button will be recessed unless you use the home button stickers that come with it. Installation was really easy. It was actually easier than the traditional screen protectors. All you have to do is clean your screen, remove the protective plastic from the glass, align on your phone and press down. You will have to apply some pressure to work the air out but it all falls in easily. The key is keeping your screen clean. You may have some issues with cases that are form fitting since the protector is thicker.
I did my best to take some photos of what the screen looks like. I hope you enjoy. Check out the link below if you are interested. ProTip: Google Bodyguardz coupon code. You may get lucky and find one that could save you some dough.
