Being the second most expensive item to replace, Smartphone screens play a vital role in the overall user experience. Being a smart user, you must do everything you can to protect it. Screens will make or break the experience, ask any broken phone screen user.
Here are 3 tips for buying and installing a phone screen protector:
Do scratch-resistant screens need protectors?
Several brands claim to have scratch resistant screens, such as Dragontrail or Gorilla Glass, leaving users confused about whether they actually need to install screen protector.
While the quality of mobile phone screens has considerably improved, none is foolproof. All phone screens need the extra layer of protection on them because there is always a risk of developing scratches.
On the other hand, the screen protector also helps the screen in case of any water spillage, which is why putting a screen protector is always recommended.
Glass or Plastic Protector?
Plastic protectors have been around longer and are quite cheaper than glass. However, glass protectors are much more efficient and provide extra-durability to the screen.
Glass protectors are much easier to install and are known to protect the screen when the phone is dropped or falls. On other hand, plastic protectors have a short-life and start to peel off after a few months of use. It also becomes a nuisance installing a new one every now and then, as it is really difficult to put one on.
This is why installing a glass protector is always recommended.
Installing the glass protector
If you already have a screen protector on your phone, examine its condition to know whether it needs replacing. If it does, then remove it before installing a new one.
When you have your hands on a new protector, ensure that do not bend it. Although glass protectors are bendy, you still don’t want to do that, as it can cause some damage to the screen.
- First, use the sticky part of the scotch tape to clean any dust particles on your phone screen so that they do not cause any air bubbles. It is a time-consuming process, but it is worth it.
- You’ll notice that there are two sides of a screen protector that needs to be peeled. Peel only side 1 and place the protector on your phone. Do it slowly and carefully.
If you don’t get it perfectly on the screen or you notice any air bubbles, don’t worry.
- Don’t peel off side 2 yet. Smooth any air bubbles with your fingers and if the protector needs a little adjusting, use sticky side of the scotch tape for realignment.
- When you feel comfortable, peel off side 2 and you’re done.
