CRYSTAL Clear - here's how to apply it perfectly!
on March 24, 2015
This is a GREAT screen protector and installed correctly it's crystal clear, can hardly tell it's even there. Here's a guide on how to get the screen protector to work perfectly.
Please note that on the Note 4 there will be a bit of the edge of the screen, all the way around, that isn't covered. This is due to the Note 4's curved display and if the screen protector went edge to edge it would lift around the sides. There's just no way around this and every screen protector for the Note 4 is the same.
Before you start you'll want to have some clear tape on hand, this will be to remove any dust particles the get stuck to the sticky side of the screen protector between the protector and the screen.
Make sure you apply this in an environment that is dust free (at least as dust free as you can get), I recommend a bathroom after it's been steamed up a bit (this helps remove dust particles from the air). Thoroughly wipe down the area you'll be working in with a wet cloth to remove any dust from the area.
On the screen protector you have two tabs, 1 and 2. The first tab protects the underside of the protector (the side that goes on the screen), the 2nd the side that faces up. You only want to start to peel back tab 1 an inch or so to start. You're going to apply the screen protector kinda like you would a band aid, peel off the 1st tab only a bit evenly across the narrow side of the screen protector. Line up the narrow edge of the screen protector with the narrow edge of your phone. This part is crucial, be sure to put the edge of the screen protector right up against the edge of the screen and that it's perfectly aligned. As you pull the backing off use a micro-fiber cloth to press the screen protector down and to remove bubbles as you peel away the backing working your way down the screen. As you're working the screen protector from one side to another if you notice any dust particles between the screen and the screen protector lift the screen protector back up to the dust particle and using the clear tape I mentioned earlier stick it to the underside of the screen protector to remove the dust, this works great.
You may end up with a few bubbles, before you take of the top layer (tab 2) work the bubbles from the middle out wiping the screen protector with the micro-fiber cloth supplied with it. With a little work you'll have a perfectly aligned, bubble free screen. If you fail the first time you have three protectors to work with and by the third you'll be a pro at doing it for sure.
