Today we’re going to review two glass screen protectors by Mime. The first is the Feather+Glass and the second is the Ghost Glass. Now we don’t usually review two products at once and you’ll find out why in a bit.
The Feather+Glass is an incredibly thin screen protector, the thinnest that we’ve seen to date. The Ghost Glass is much thicker but offers close to edge to edge protection which is nice. It’s also the best feeling screen protector that we’ve used to date.
With that being said, both of these screen protectors aren’t great in terms of durability as a bit of pressure on their corners will result in a bit of damage.
We’ve given the Feather+Glass a score of 3.1 Eh’s out of 5. The Ghost Glass was rated at 3.0 Eh’s out of 5. These are some of the lowest rated products we’ve reviewed and it just gets my blood going because I’ve spent 80 bucks on these screen protectors and I’m just blown away by how awful they are.
At MobileReviewsEh, we base our reviews on real usage. So I’ll sit in my couch and literally feel up the product that I’m using so guess how surprised I was when I took my mighty finger nail and broke my MIME screen protector.
Why are we doing two screen protector reviews at once? Well, after I broke the feather+glass, I went and installed the Ghost Glass and within 20 minutes of installation, I’d broken that screen protector. I am still not a happy camper about these products.
In terms of design, both these screen protectors are not going to be re-applicable and I say this only because of how easy it is to damage them. Once there’s a chip or scratch, peeling back a glass screen protector will result in it cracking. Mime does do a good job of providing the installation tools and dust removal tools.
The Feather+Glass covers most of the iPhone’s touchscreen whereas the Ghost Glass extends quite a ways past the touchable area. We do like this feature of the screen protector but if you’re planning on using with a specific case, we’d recommend installing the screen protector with the case on or else you’ll end up with some bubbling issues due to a poor fit.
In terms of build quality, both of these screen protectors chip when you apply a tiny bit of pressure DESPITE the fact that MIME says they have anti-chip curved edges. On the Ghost Glass, the bottom around the cutout for the TouchID was very easy to chip. In my opinion, the poor build quality is the #1 reason NOT to get these screen protectors. With all that being said, we did like the thinness of the Feather+Glass but the thinness means nothing when it chips like hard candy.
in terms of protection, these screen protectors will not protect against sand paper despite having 9H reinforced glass but will suffice against coins and knives. We didn’t do the impact protection so we’re giving them the benefit of the doubt that it’s going to protect an iphone screen from a height of 18 inches with Bertha our 200 g steel ball.
In terms of the functionality of your iPhone’s touchscreen, the only thing we noticed was that the sensitivity on the Ghost Glass was a little less and we’re guessing that’s because of the thickness of the screen protector.
Now I do have a couple of nice things to say about these MIME screen protectors is that their Oleophobic coating is pretty strong and so finger printing really isn’t an issue. In fact, I find it better than a stock iPhone’s coating in my opinion.
Also, the screen protectors feel nice. There’s a nice slick feel to them and again, it might be the coating that they use but once I got past the chipping, I did enjoy using the product but that literally means nothing when you can stab the corner of the screen protector with a finger nail and chip it.
