Chic Finds | Phantom Glass protecting my Blackberry!!

Hey dolls!

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Phantom Glass asking if I wanted to try their product out. They sent me two screen protectors, one for my Blackberry Classic and another for my Nikon D5500 DSLR. 

We all have cellphones or tablets or some sort of hand held device that we keep with us at all times. With daily use, your screen is inevitably going to get scratched. However, I am one of those people who do not have a phone case nor ever use screen protectors because they are just annoying. I hate when screen protectors begin to peel or when they are so cloudy, you cannot read the screen clearly. But I also am a person who constantly drops her blackberry on a daily basis... WHOOPS! 

So why did I decide to try Phantom Glass? It was something new and I said what the heck, if I hate it, I can always just peel it off and chuck it in the bin. So no harm done. 

The phantom glass screen protector has been on my Blackberry Classic screen for almost a month now and I am loving it. These are my thoughts after one month of use. 

The protector is actually tempered glass, so unlike the traditional "sticker" like screen protectors, the tempered glass feels and reacts like my original Blackberry screen. Also, the protector has not shown any signs of peeling. This is important for me because it is a huge pet peeve of mine when screen protectors begin to peel because dust and other gross gunk begins to collect underneath gah! 

Furthermore, the glass does not interfere with clarity. The colours are not distorted nor is there any sort of reflective glare. I actually held off on applying the screen to my Nikon DSLR because I was skeptical of there being colour distortion which is very common with screen protectors, but there is none with this one. The best way to tell, open up a blank white something on your device. If it comes through crisp white, perfect! So after testing out the product for a month, I am only now applying it to my Nikon LCD! Which is awesome because I want my camera LCD to be protected, especially since Nikon has moved to touch functions. 

What I received in the kit:
• Alcohol swab
• Micro fiber cloth
• The tempered glass protector

It is very easy to apply. First clean your screen with the alcohol swab and microfiber cloth. This is very important because you do not want any oily residue or dust particles on your screen when applying the protector. Then just apply protector. Boom, Done. I suggest not being too picky aka peeling it off and re-applying the screen until it is perfectly aligned... ummm cause I did that on my nikon and now there is dust trapped underneath ... fail me. 

The protector is very durable. However, if you are like me and your devices takes a beating, aka drop your phone on the sidewalk everyday, there is going to be some damage. My Phantom Glass has a very small chip in the upper left corner. However, I can see that there is no damage to my actual Blackberry screen. That is the most important part to me. The little chip does not bother me so I am not going to bother replacing it any time soon. I actually expect to have this screen on my Blackberry until I switch to a new device :) Phantom Glass does offer a lifetime warranty for breaks, so technically I can get a new one, but like I said, it does not bother me. 

So if you have been considering getting a new screen protector, I highly suggest checking out Phantom Glass. I am not an easy person to please haha so if I liked it, I can assure you, you will too!
