Tempered glass screen protectors are all the rage these days. With displays becoming bigger and more beautiful, the last thing you want to see is a big scratch across one. The folks at XGEAR understand this and are leading the charge for tempered glass, having produced protectors for both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus. Their newest product brings that same level of 8H hardness, oil-resistant coating, beveled edges, and .4mm thickness to the beloved Nexus 7. (more…)
And in the last contest of our rapid fire hour, we have two Galaxy S3 tempered glass screen protectors to give away from the folks at XGEAR. This specific protector is called the Spectre, and will give your big beautiful GS3 screen more protection that you can probably imagine.

They can be finicky when applying, but once you get it right, it’ll feel just like your normal screen. Ready to win one? (more…)
Today, we’re taking a second look at XGEAR’s tempered glass screen protector for the Galaxy Nexus, called the Fantom. We first took a look at these back in July when XGEAR was getting close to being on final samples and definitely noticed a couple of issues which they have told us have since been addressed. So as part of Reader Appreciation Week, we wanted to talk about our new impressions and then hand a couple of these $30 tempered glass protectors out to the best Android community on the planet.

The folks over at XGEAR sent us samples of their new Spectre and Fantom tempered glass screen protectors for both the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Nexus to test.

Looking for that extra bit of protection on your Galaxy Nexus screen? Would a tempered glass screen protector interest you? We have seen similar products from companies like Spigen SGP sell well for the iPhone and Galaxy Note, but up until this point, the G-Nex had been left out. Thanks to a member over a RootzWiki who seems to have convinced the company he works for to create a similar product, tempered glass is finally coming.
For those not familiar with tempered glass, think of it as the ultimate screen protector. Once applied, it shouldn’t reduce screen sensitivity at all, but it will help your phone survive a major fall. Spigen’s, for example, is a specially processed reinforced glass that protects against scratches and also increases shock absorbency. We are assuming that this product will be similar to that. Think of Tempered glass as putting all other screen protectors to shame.
His company has opened up a pre-order for the glass protector at $29.99, but if you use the coupon code “NEXUSFTW” at checkout, you can save yourself $5. They expect orders to be ready by late June or mid-July.
