Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I flipping hate screen protectors. I've never been good at applying them and always end up throwing them away. However, having just got a nice shiny iPhone 5s I felt I needed to try again. After reading the reviews here I took the plunge and now I'm glad I did.
Like a CSI operation, short of wearing a tryvek suit, I prepared to apply the protector. I read the instructions twice and made sure the bathroom was nice and steamy! I cleaned the screen of my phone and, as recommended, tried to line it up a few times before actually attempting to fix it.
Long story short I messed it up about 15 times! But, as advised I made sure not to touch the sticky side (almost impossible if you're as clumsy as me) and I also used the sticky tape tip as mentioned on the back of the pack. After lifting and reapplying many times, I finally got it onto the phone but with quite a few bubbles. Using another tip from the pack I wrapped the enclosed cloth around a credit card and systematically set about removing the bubbles.
All in all it took the best part of 45 minutes BUT I'm glad I persevered. Now I have a near perfect screen protector with only one tiny bubble on the very edge of the phone - annoying but I figured I should quit while I was ahead! The steamy bathroom definitely helped as did the credit card tip.
So, for the first time EVER I am pleased with my screen protector - It makes no difference to the responsiveness of the touch screen and can hardly be seen.
I definitely recommend this product, just keep calm and persevere!
