The protectors are a nice thickness and while there isn't an applicator card supplied, you can use the edge / corner of a credit card or something similar. Just to note a credit card is too large for the touch screen but I just tilted it a bit and it was fine
Sure, fitting screen protectors can be a bit fiddly, but you need just need to take some care.
Line up the screen protectors first, so you know how they will fit - practice the motions described below if you're unfamiliar with applying them
Prepare in a 'dust free' environment - some where like the kitchen where you won't get a load of carpet fluff stuck to it
Clean the screen with a soft cloth ensuring no dust remains
Peal off the first film (tab 1) and line up one end (I find it easiest to start on the left side but I am right handed), then using a piece of card push this along the surface of the protector (e.g. left to right) whilst gradually lowering it onto the screen with your other hand.
Use the card to push out any remaining air bubbles or using a soft cloth rub in a circular motion from the centre outwards.
Only once you are happy there are no air bubbles left and it's all stuck firmly in place then remove the second film (tab 2).
With a bit of time, preparation and patience you shouldn't have any trouble. I certainly didn't and for free I really can't complain!
Unfortunately here, it didnt!
I put the bottom screen cover on, had two bubbles. I removed one bubble but found the other was infact a spec of tiny dust on the inside of the sticky side. End result... ruined! There is no way to remove that dust once its there on the sticky side.
I removed the cover and threw them away.
Now don't missunderstand me. As my title states: if you can manage to apply this correctly and not get any bubbles or dust, then it will do the job required.
The reason I have removed two stars is this:
1) You only get ONE bottom screen cover and ONE top screen cover.
This means you only get ONE chance at doing both correctly, and for the price of the item this is a rip-off. You should at least get two each in case you do make a mistake (which is sometimes unavoidably if you can't see the dust), but you could then give it a second go.
2) The bottom screen (I didnt try the top one) just didn't fit!
It is clearly too small for the screen, and it leaves a very evident gap along the top and bottom. Now I can appreciate this means you have the option to remove them if so desired (as the gap gives space to leaver it off_, but it would have looked better if maybe they had left a designed intend on one corner, instead of leaving spaces at all four sides.Read more ›
When these are on, they are great, easy to work out any air bubbles which is why it has three stars. However, I did find that it was important to be quick and not take the first layer off then leave it for air to get to it...i am talking seconds!! Because if this happens, dust gets on it and each speck of dust creats an air pocket which is impossible to get out. Not noticable once the screen is on, but i am a perfectionist and hated it! Only a niggle though, and I also found cheaper ones out there that did the job too! so all in all its good...but not that good :)
First I removed the stickers from the packaging. Being careful to only handle the stickers by the edges, I first worked on the lower touch screen. I was able to carefully fit it into place without making it look like a slanted picture frame. After smoothing out the air bubbles with a flat object (I'd suggest using an old credit card or something along those lines) the result was perfect. No dust, no dirt, no bubbles, and my stylus worked perfectly fine on the screen afterwards. Brilliant.
Then I moved onto the top display screen, hoping to get the same outcome. Sadly it wasn't to be. I had an incredibly hard time matching the sticker up with the edges of the screen exactly, although after a few attempts I got it very close. But despite wiping the screen with a microfibre cloth beforehand, I found a lot of dust still managed to get trapped underneath the sticker; and when I smoothed out the bubbles a lot of dirt built up around the edges, and some of it still remained stuck on the screen after I'd tried to wipe it off. It looked like a mess.
So a 3-Star score from me for these screen protectors. Are they worth buying for your 3DS? Yes, but only for the bottom screen.
