A lot easier to apply than I thought.
on 24 February 2014
Purchased these for £1.59 from Memorycapital, and Items arrived well within timescale, and on opening one packet I saw the film, and cloth they supply to clean the screen with first, and a small piece of flat plastic to apply the film to take out any creases or air bubbles as you go... very invaluable this piece by the way!
I opted out using the cloth as I have those free cloths that come with flat screen TV's and personally find those ideal for removing smudges and dust.
Being a typical Male, I don't normally read instructions for applying simple things like these, (Yip, I don't reads Maps either) but having messed up a wall sticker not long ago because i threw out an important part - the backing film... I have now started to appreciate i'm not as smart as i would like to think I am - That really pains me to admit that by the way :-(
So, I read the very little instructions on the packet, noting that this screen protector has 3 layers.. with the actual film sandwitched in the middle, and did as instructed.... firstly tho, placing screen on the tablet first to see if there was any room for error, and there isn't really.
I then cleaned the screen, and buffed up well with my own cloth, tilted the tab to one side so i can see if there was any smudges still visible, and there was... so buffed them out till there was none.
I then blew softy along the surface and used the side of my hand in a soft sweeping motion and double checked yet again that no smudges or dust was on the Tablets screen.
Peeled up the bottom protector layer SLOWLY TO AVOID STATIC THAT ATTRACTS DUST, and applied as instructed... making sure top edge was aligned level, and used the small piece of plastic as i went... got 3/4 way down and had a quick look and seen it was going off line, not by a great deal, but very noticeable.
I then took a big gulp of air, peeled the whole film SLOWLY back off. and tilted the film ever so slightly in the opposite direction, and slowly applied again, but this time very nervously looking for any bubbles or dust since i've now lifted it from the face.
Gets back down 3/4 of the way and checked again... It was perfectly in line... Phew!...what a relief! ;-0
I then let the last bit roll onto the face, and used the applicator to smooth it all over again, before removing the top layer.. Voila, perfection :-)
My only tips here would be... especially if your a Man like me that thinks he knows it all ... That will count for 99.9% of the species then?... ;-))
1/ READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!.. ;-)
2/ Clean and Buff the screen to ensure no smudges or dust are left on the face.
3/ Ensure that you apply in a dust free room... even if that means coming back down to your livingroom at 3am, Naked, to apply it --- That's not as bad an idea as it sounds, as you really don't appreciate the sheer amount of dust that comes from your clothing! - Just remember to ensure your blinds are closed though ;-D
When applied, you really don't notice its on there, and i don't see any difference to the Tabs touch facility.
Smudges seem to clean more easily too, so that's a bonus I never expected.
All in all I give this a huge 5*, as it really was a lot easier to apply than I thought.
