OtterBox is well-known for its tough, yet functional protective cases for many smartphones – they may not always be the prettiest cases, but they certainly protect your smartphone from nasty falls and there is even a waterproof case available. Other than the device itself, the display is the part that needs the most protecting, but so often the screen protectors will certainly protect the screen from scratches, but as a compromise you can end up with a cloudy, foggy or bubble-filled film over your display. Today, OtterBox has put a stop to those objectionable compromises with their new OtterBox Alpha Glass – the toughest screen protector yet – but they claim flawless clarity, reactive touch, anti-shatter/scratch resistance and a precision application.
OtterBox claims that Alpha Glass is quick and simple to install and does not affect display clarity. It is made from a tempered glass and polyester material giving it strength and durability. Currently it is available now for the newer iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S5. OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas said:
“Alpha Glass was designed for smartphone users who want a truer touch screen experience with the benefits of protection from scratches and drop. The unique properties of our shatterproof glass bring a completely new experience to our customers. Alpha Glass is so clear and smooth; most people will forget they even have a screen protector on. The tactile experience is second to none, with no ‘sticky’ or ‘tacky’ texture.”
Installation is simple – lightly clean and coat the display with the provided alcohol wipe – then clean the display with an included microfiber cleaning cloth to remove fingerprints and dust – next align the screen protector with the Alpha Glass applicator (actually the case you purchased it in) – turn you phone face down and use gentle pressure to secure the screen protector and then pushes out any air for a bubble-free application. Alpha Glass can easily be removed and will leave no residue. Alpha Glass can be used as a standalone screen protector or in conjunction with one of the premium cases from OtterBox. Alpha Glass is made for the following OtterBox cases: Commuter Series – Commuter Series Wallet, Symmetry Series – and the Resurgence Power Case.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha Glass will run you $29.95 and the video below will show you how easy it is to install on the Galaxy S5.
