Technology Review: Voxkin Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector for 5s

Disclosure: I received this product at a discounted price for a honest, unbiased review. All opinions are my own, all statements are factual.  All photos were taken by me and belong to me. This post contains an affiliate link.

I had never owned a tempered glass screen protector before I got the opportunity to try this Voxkin one out. In fact, I had no idea they existed. Aside from flimsy, cheap plastic screen protectors, I had tried a military grade one that I bought from Walmart, that was it.

Below are some pictures of the packaging and item as I unboxed it.

The screen protector lasted for a couple weeks before the corner was chipped and a small piece of glass fell off. After it broke, I decided to remove it. I believe it cracked because I kept lifting that corner trying to spread the adhesive out and get it straight. It was because of me, I believe, not because of the actual product. Below are pictures of it after I removed it. Note: it cracked across as I removed it not initially.

Here are the pros:

  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee (They are sending me a new one) Although, I will not use it at this time because I am now reviewing a different tempered glass screen protector.
  • I scratched a key across it and it is resistant. No, I did not put all my weight on it. I did it like a key scratching across it in a pocket.
  • Installation actually is bubble free. I had no bubbles.
  • The adhesive does not leave residue of any sort on your screen.
  • Easy to take off and put on and repeat (although, this aids in the cracking.)
  • Feels nice, unlike the plastic ones
  • Scratch resistant (although, nothing is 100%)

Here are the cons:

  • Cracks easily if you are not careful when taking it off and putting it on
  • Sometimes the adhesive will not spread all the way and will stay a bit in the corner but does effect when you are using the screen. Unlike bubbles, it’s invisible unless the screen is black.

Those are the pros and cons that I found. They may be different for other people. Here are the pictures:

Do I recommend this product? It depends on the type of person you are. If your items last long, I do recommend trying it or at least trying tempered glass. I think it’s cool to try and it works for some and not for others. You won’t know if you never try.

You can buy this one here (Amazon). It’s $8.99 with free shipping for Prime members!
