We spend a lot of time reviewing various cases for the iPhone. That’s even more important now that Apple’s current lineup all have glass backs. That does not, however, mean we don’t need to consider protecting the screen. Thankfully, Bodyguardz offers the Pure 2 Premium Glass Screen Protector. It recently saved my iPhone X. I’m serious… it saved the phone.
The Bodyguardz Pure 2 is an ultra-thin tempered glass screen protector. And while the company has offered screen protectors for years, the Pure 2 is the first glass screen protector in the US that employs aluminosilicate. What is aluminosilicate? It is a rare variant of tempered glass that lets the screen protector be thinner than previous offerings AND more durable. The result of using this material for the Pure 2 is that it is five times more scratch-resistant than other smartphone glass screen protectors.
Aluminosilicate is a type of tempered glass that is superior to other iPhone screen protectors because of its unique glass technology. Light years ahead in terms of durability and ease-of-use, aluminosilicate tempered glass is almost impossible to break, scratch or mark. Pure 2 also includes an impact-absorbing adhesive technology, allowing you to use your new phone stress-free. Precision-cut edges finish off this next-generation glass to give you a flawless fit.
As Bodyguardz explains:
BodyGuardz Pure 2 with AlumiTech for iPhone X is the very first glass screen protector in the US to utilize aluminosilicate, a rare variant of tempered glass. The technology in this glass offers thinner, more durable protection—unlike the regular soda-lime glass found in most other screen protectors.
At just under $40, the Pure 2 is expensive but, as I will explain in a moment, the price is well worth it! Also, since BodyGuardz offers free lifetime replacements, the $39.95 you spend for this screen protector is the only money you will ever NEED to spend on protecting your current phone.
Inside the box you get:
- Premium Pure 2 tempered glass screen protector
- Microfiber cleaning cloth
- Patented Express Align tray for easy installation
- Installation instructions
- Free Lifetime Replacements
- 30-Day Money Back Guarantee
The Express Align tray is a big deal. I’ve NEVER been good at installing screen protectors. They always came out with improper alignments and bubbles. Most of the time I waited until I saw Judie and let her install a new screen protector since it was the only way I could be sure to get a good install.
Thanks to the Express Align tray though I was able to install the Pure 2 myself on the very first try. Here’s a video as to why that was the case.
The result was a perfect install on my iPhone X. The screen protector was perfectly clear and, within a few days, I pretty much forgot it was there.
Then… I set the phone on my kitchen counter and looked on in panic as it slipped off and went crashing to the ground. It hit the tile floor with a “thud!” When I picked it up, I was greeted with this…
It was ugly…
Really ugly. So much for my $1000 smartphone. Then I remembered I had the Pure 2 installed on the screen. I peeled it away and found this…
That’s right, the Pure 2 was history, but the iPhone was pristine! And while this was a review sample, had I PURCHASED it, the Bodyguardz Advantage Program would have had a new one on the way… for free. That’s what I call a smart investment in tech-protection. Check it out here.
