I’ve seen so many horror stories even in the last week of this I think you’ll learn something with that being said let’s get right into it so as great as modern Smartphone’s are getting one area that has not drastically improved over the last few years is scratch resistance whilst the latest Gorilla Glass 6 will prevent your phone shattering into a thousand pieces if you drop it is not very good at resisting scuffs scratches and marks which overall over a period of time need a Smartphone just looking a little bit damaged.
Alright so the first choice you’re gonna have to make is do I go for a tempered glass screen protector or a plastic and in 99% cases tempered glass makes a lot more sense it will be completely flat it’ll be slightly more translucent so it lets more light in and it will add a tiny bit more thickness and weight to your device but it will also be much stronger and to be honest tempered glass used to be quite expensive but as it stands now you can get a pack of two for most Smartphone’s for about 6-7 dollars.
The other option is plastic and to be honest these are the kind of screen protectors that are normally included free with your phone I strongly recommend against them their lower quality can make your screen look a little bit grainy and also they come to a lot of the time with these little micro creases in them and you’ll see why that’s a problem in just a second.
alright this is when the method starts to get a little bit more unorthodox you need to find yourself a room in your house which has a very low dust count we’re going to try and prevent dust falling on your Smartphone screen whilst you’re applying the screen protector and for most people this is going to be the bathroom so turn on the shower obviously move well away from air to but keep the shower on and close the door in the bathroom turn the heat up streamed and generate some warm water vapor and leave it to do this for about 2-3 minutes until your just starting to see some condensation on the windows and this condensation is actually going to make the dust in the room fall to the floor so after leaving it for three or four minutes you’ll be good to go with your screen protection in the meantime while you’re waiting for the shower wash your hands thoroughly and then dry it with a towel you don’t want to use tissues here because it might make small bits of fluff stick to your hands which could then get on the phone screen.
Then you want to clean the front of your device to prevent not only fingerprints showing up underneath your screen protector but also bacteria building up over you’re going to gently rub your screen dry and there are two different types of cloth you can use to do this on the Left we have your standard microfiber cloth a little bit cheaper probably included and the other option is a slightly thicker more substantial Smartphone towel now in terms of what they do they’re actually both fine the small thin towel is more reusable though you will have to throw away the disposable one after a couple of uses and when you are wiping the screen to get rid of fingerprints be very gentle because if there are any particles sitting on top of there what you don’t want to do is to press them further into the display which would cause scratches by the time you’ve done this after 2 minutes or so your phone should be spotless and glistening and just is a bit of a precautionary measure.
I would also use an air duster at the stage this is going to release super high-pressure air onto your screen lifting off any particles that even your eyes couldn’t see. now the screen protector itself most of them will come with a sticker that says peel first and that’s exactly what you do you peel off the first half or so of the sticker and then line it up with your ferns features so say for example your phone has a front camera line this up with the corresponding hole on your screen protector and if you can do the same for a feature on the bottom like the home button and that’ll make sure it’s completely aligned you may get a couple of air bubbles still in there but these are gonna be nothing serious and you can actually push them out using some pressure with your thumb so using the other smartphone.
I’m gonna show you how easily this can go wrong by using a plastic screen protector by not cleaning or wiping the display underneath by not properly lining it up we have created an absolute mess zooming in you can see the air bubbles we’ve got in this screen protector are actually there because there are particles trapped underneath and there is, unfortunately, no way of getting rid of these.
so this comparison is a good example of how much difference a little bit of care can make you could prevent all these little air bubbles which are permanently there now you could prevent misalignment with your home button which is just strangely irritating your screen never actually looking clean because there are fingerprints underneath the screen protector now is also a fatal flaw.
You’re probably thinking this is military-like precision for something as trivial as a screen protector also that is true you are only applying one of these once every two years and messing something like this up is enough to really damage your Smartphone experience in total everything I’ve shown will cost you no more than 5-6 dollars and it makes a lot of sense because two years down the line you can take this off your smartphone and you could sell it as if it was in brand-new condition.
