The review of skrinprotektor of Spigen SGP Steinheil Series for iPhone 5. Cunning experience
All photos clickable — жимкайте, do not hesitate, they cool
Yes, friends, the official announcement of iPhone 5 still was not, but skrinprotektor or, speaking to ordinary language, protective films for it already are, and not ABBA from whom, and from very known brand of Spigen SGP (the 1st word in the name still raises a smile at the founder). If it is honest, when to me offered these accessories on the review, I thought that it is any joke. Even despite active public relations of accessories for iPhone of the sixth generation on an official site of the company. One business — pictures on web page and absolutely another — a real product in hands. Well, it should be entertaining experience, let’s consider these plenochka more attentively, and we will paste them to something … yes though to iPad later.
Packing at films ordinary for the Spigen SGP Steinheil series and even is kept the unique color scheme which is identical for all series, regardless of devices for which skrinprotektor are provided. In this case in a blue envelope from a dense cardboard there is Steinheil Ultra Crystal film, in pink — Ultra Oleophobic. In general according to titles everything is clear: the 1st — very transparent, in other words really crystal and not influencing the image — whether so it, we will find out in the course of testing. the 2nd — too transparent and glossy, not influencing a picture, but at all this owning an oleofobny covering. In principle to it the skin fat, any traces from cosmetics (крэмов and ointments) and if and поналипает, without troubles it will be erased should not stick.
In the range of Spigen SGP there is an opaque film of Ultra Fine (practically does not collect fingerprints) and hybrid opaque glossy Ultra Optics. I in a past surveyed the last in option for iPad 2. Though for iPhone 5 the company while decided to be limited to 2 models, but to them approached with all gravity. So, there is a decent polygraphy and very qualitative cardboard with a stamping …
… firm голограммка …
… and even the image of that «iPhone 5» what it is seen by the global public, here only quality of a print not so:
It not most important. Inside full set, also one very printsipny detail:
On this pink piece of paper it is written that the client of this product for 100 % is protected from risk to be "thrown". Despite 100500 hearings plying in a network about what will be iPhone of the sixth generation, despite qualitative photos of its forward panel and video of that, on what the new screen of an accessory is capable, the total product can appear another. Can absolutely be that all hearings — it only distracting maneuver Apple. A pier, threw to journalists some spare parts, the case, they are happy, the people in ecstasy, and the real design and the real accessories are hided far and deeply.
Thus, Spigen SGP made secure, having promised all buyers of these films to send new if suddenly real iPhone 5 appears not such as all of us think. Moreover, as it is written on a bumazhentsiya, it is not necessary to address or write somewhere any letters and to return a product. The company will send new films the machine gun. But it concerns only those who bought them directly on an official site. Buyers with Amazon should write the electronic letter to the designated address and what to do to those who bought such film somewhere in shop — unclear. Though, it is possible to contact the company and to send the serial number. Even with each film to nonexistent phone in a set the unique identifier is delivered. I think, Spigen SGP will not refuse to send the correct films if something happens.
In other words, in fact, the person pays a film beforehand. If new iPhone appears such what all of us more than once saw it in pictures and render, the accessory will be already ready to use. If is not present, it is necessary to wait a little. Well, a good course and why also is not present?
Here, practically, all set:
Pay attention that in an envelope lies on two films — it pleasantly. The piece at mass production actually cheap, and to the client can save up many nervous cages if it will not turn out to paste correctly a film from the first. By the way, there not everything is simple, but I will tell about a sticker a bit later. While I wish visit attention to the such I complete piece:
In fact, it is four stripes of a qualitative adhesive tape which are not leaving traces on a surface to which it sticks. Piece very suitable at sticker. The main enemy of a nakleyshchik — is a dust. The mote which has got under a film forms the most unpleasant vial of air which in a consequence very much is an eyesore, and to get rid of it it is possible in only one way — having cleaned a mote directly in the course of a sticker. It becomes by means of those complete strips of an adhesive tape. Will try to blow simply it, fill under a film of a saliva and not the fact that will blow, will pick out a finger — will leave fingerprints from a reverse side that is absolutely bad. Skochem a dust is cleaned on time – two.
Also the card for expression of vials of air exchanged. Earlier Spigen SGP had it from quite soft rubber, at present — plastic. It is necessary to use accurately, and I too will tell about it in the section on experience of a sticker of a film.
The long, as sausage
After accessory extraction from packing at first it wanted to try on it to existing iPhone.
And something it seems was the first thought after that: «Yes it will be as sausage the long!». You realize, the photo does not transfer, how a film, so and the case of the future of iPhone long. Well really sausage any. Even it wanted, that the screen was not 4 inches, and 4,3 but is wider. Perfectly, while to judge early as iPhone of the sixth generation will appear it is comfortable in operation, let’s look at some interesting pictures better:
Apparently, the distance from the Home button to bottom edge of phone at a novelty can appear less. About moving of the FaceTime chamber to the center over the colloquial loudspeaker too long ago it is clear. Here is how it will look:
Well and at present all described above in the small clip:
Employees have Spigen SGP there is a strange feeling of humour. On each film there are two protective stickers designated by figure «1» and «2». The ordinary person thinks that the first it is necessary to tear off a film with figure one, and upon — opposite. There still signatures are: Front, that is before, and Back, means, the back. To glass the film is glued by the back, and we stick later with a finger into its forward part.
It seems cheerfully, at the 1st look, and my good companion-gadzhetoman with bolshushchy experience of a sticker of any films managed thus to spoil a dorozhenny glass skrinprotektor of Spigen SGP GLAS.t for Galaxy Note Samsung. The matter is that earlier on films of the company there was only one protective layer, and in a set the soft rubber scraper for expression of vials of air was delivered, I mentioned it above. Such scraper did not scratch a film at its smoothing:
At present, maybe, protect and put an ordinary plastic card — it simply to scratch a skrinprotektor and that it did not leave, there is a protective layer at number «1 — Front».
So, it is short — first accurately we unstick layer about a third with an inscription «2 — Back», we bend it that was to put with comfort a film to the screen, we try on it on openings for the loudspeaker and the chamber, accurately we put and we start to glue, in passing smoothing a scraper that there were no vials in the center, from where they are very heavy for banishing. Do not hurry to unstick the bottom layer completely. If in the center a bubble, raise a film, clean it, pressing a film from above a scraper, continue to glue. If the mote got — raise a film in that place, remove a mote with a sticky part of a complete adhesive tape.
In general, that there were no troubles with a dust, glue films in a bathroom, previously having included for some time hot water. Steam will clean a dust from air.
When put a skrinprotektor completely, having cleaned the bottom layer absolutely, start to smooth vials along the edges, without tearing off a forward protective layer. From time to time it is necessary to put important efforts for this purpose, the main thing — the screen not to press through (a joke, but in each joke there is a truth shred). Cleaned bubbles, it is possible to unstick an external layer. Something as a result will turn out such:
I am proud of myself — pasted both films absolutely, however, to new iPad. To iPhone 4S to glue it is useless — even the tiny side over glass let’s to them stick normally, skrinprotektor quite rigid. Well – with, it is time to study accessories more attentively as now there is a possibility to feel both, actually without tearing off a finger — it costs much, and for me experience was very informative. I hope, for someone it too will appear necessary.
Under a microscope
So, I will repeat — films rather rigid and it is excellent. Theoretically they will need to be scratched, as showed experiment — it really so. Their thickness is insignificant. It is possible to estimate on pictures below:
By the way, Ultra Crystal in the last reincarnation became for 25 % for thickness and, type, more strong. Not including that, all films possess the ultra-violet filter, have no effect of a rainbow (Chinese ноунейм with it quite often sins), and are pasted on a silicone layer to which very small motes are not terrible. All raw materials are made in the Country of a rising sun, a film too, collected in a heap — in Korea the producer so speaks. At Ultra Oleophobic hardness — 3H is still specified. Probably it is excellent, as a rigid toothbrush I did not manage to scratch any of films. Process is embodied on video below:
And here is how films look at bright light:
Pay attention to the bottom picture. Skrinprotektor at the left, that Ultra Crystal, gives a little in blue. Not absolutely it appeared megatransparent. On the last measure, at bright natural external lighting or on the sun. Here in this picture the effect in particular is perfectly appreciable:
Photographed at a window, light falls from above
After all, at artificial lighting or when light not so many both films are actually completely transparent. Here example:
Click a photo and will see pair of thin lines — these are borders of skrinprotektor, in such aspects they are completely transparent and the image do not influence in any way
And here pair of pictures is closer:
Two vertical strips — are borders of films
Thus, on transparency of accessories and on their impact on the image conclusions following:
- Steinheil Ultra Crystal — is completely transparent in aspects with low illumination, at bright light does the image a little more pale. Though at soft artificial lighting the white background a little bit loses in brightness, but the picture becomes a little more contrast. As a whole, practically does not influence the image.
- Steinheil Ultra Oleophobic — is completely transparent in all aspects of illumination and absolutely does not influence in any way the image.
As to tactile emotions, in other words questions to both films, on the last measure if to compare to glass. So, Ultra Oleophobic is covered with an oleofobny layer and in comparison with Ultra Crystal the finger on it really slides better, but is insignificant. In other words, as though there is an effect but when right there you try поелозить a finger on glass, a film to a meeting it would be desirable to tear off and throw out, very big difference in tactile emotions not in favor of a skrinprotektor. But the accessory is better cleared, than Ultra Crystal and is completely transparent.
The last, by the way, pleased with tactile emotions — they better, than at analog of 2010 of release. Used such together with iPad of the first generation, but in three days removed it. And so, on the old man the finger slid absolutely badly, and the novelty became firmer and more smooth, so and it is better for fingers. It is cleared from грязищи too perfectly in comparison with last generation.
As a result my choice from these 2 accessories — Steinheil Ultra Oleophobic as more transparent in all aspects of illumination and slightly more slippery. As there are they equally — $14 on a site of the producer.
Though it also was the review of very strange accessories for while nonexistent device, he allowed to carry out some printsipny tests which result is useful for though what person planning purchase of skrinprotektor of Spigen SGP. All of them are identical and differ only a form under this or that device, whether it be iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, iPad, Android-smartphones, etc.
And it is concrete, it was possible to behold tiny impact on a picture of a film of Ultra Crystal in aspects of visible external lighting and on a white background. Earlier I such did not notice, well and it is unreal on the accessory screen to which the accessory suits mm in mm. Very much difference small.
And here Steinheil Ultra Oleophobic in general any, even on the image have no smallest negative effects in all aspects. It is slightly thinner and certainly less rigid (personal feelings), but too perfectly confronts to rigid subjects and slides better.
And the most important conclusion that no film which is even most expensive and technological, will be compared on tactile feelings to accessory glass if on it there is an oleofobny covering. The unique candidate — is a glass skrinprotektor of Spigen SGP GLAS.t and analogs, but for the last I do not warrant, and here GLAS.t I use now on iPad. On tactile feelings it is completely identical with oleofobny glass of an accessory.
To fans of the Chinese films for a dollar which like to consider itself as the cleverest and поплёвывать from above on the "prostachok", paying bad means for brand skrinprotektor, I will tell the following: the difference after all is, at all this both in quality, and in a set. the 1st was proved visually by Nikita Goryainov in the recent review of production of Clever. the 2nd also is
so visible an unaided look. Plus the same films of SGP after all to paste without bubbles it is easier that leaves because of rigidity of an accessory and existence of the silicone layer "absorbing" small motes.
After all, I remain at the outlook: it is better to do without in general a skrinprotektor and it is simple to try to address accurately with a gadget. Or to use glass analogs, however, they while very expensive, well and too not without a sin. Here only I will already tell about it in GLAS.t operating experience if that is interesting to public.
