The difference between .3mm and .23 mm doesn't seem like much but it can create an obvious lip and also cause case issues. Also, rounded edges are a huge deal and not all glass protectors have them. And the thicker the protector the more important rounded edges become.

Like I said I've tried them all, curved edges are nice but I have yet to chip one that doesnt have them. The thinner they are the more brittle as well. I had a .2mm glas tr and it shattered very easily when dropped on a wood floor. The oleophobic coating wears off on all of them after 1-2 month depending how often you wipe your phone clean. I have yet to have one not be a perfect fit as well. I was a long time spigen user but then switched to the ebay cheap ones and couldn't be happier.

Brands I've owned
Spigen
Clairvue
Ghost Armour
Crystal Armour (best one I've had but cost me 70 dollars didnt need a cutout for the proximity sensor for my Z1)
Xgear Fanthom
Glass-M
Wilco
about 10 other brands from ebay they always seem to come in different packages

Any idea who actually makes it? I know the AT&T version is made by bodyguardz and it's alright except it doesn't have curved edges which is really important to me.
