Hi guys, just wanted to share my thoughts around the tempered glass screen protectors. I just received my Brando ones in the mail
Previously on my Z, I had a SGP slim one, and most of my comments will be drawn in comparison to that one.
Out of the box, the brando ones didnt seem quite as premium compared to the SGP, but still, you knew you were getting a quality product.
Came with a small microfibre, and two small dust removal stickers.
Application: Application of the Brando product was EASIER than the SGP, The SGP had very strong adhesive, as such if applied poorly, you would need to damage the adhesive layer when trying to pull it back and re apply - 2 of my SGP ones had slightly lifted edged due to this. The brando adhesive wasnt as aggressive, but did alow me to lift it off quite easily. This meant, however, the brando was susceptible to some tiny air bubbles as the adhesive was trying to cure. This was easily taken care of with some firm thumb presses.
Glass itself - seemed just as oleophobic as the SGP - excellent. The brando seems about the same thickness as the thin version of the SGP - dont have a micrometer to check.
The corners are rounded, and the graduation of the rounding seems less pronounces when compared with the SGP. either way, both are high quality and lovely to touch and look at.
very happy with it thus far. just hope the oleophobic coating lasts longer than my SGP one on the Z (about 3~4 months).
