1. Before you remove the backing labeled "back" (number 2) from the screen protector, line it up perfectly on the phone and tape one of the long sides of the protector down to the phone using 2-3 small strips of scotch tape.
2. Once taped, lift the screen protector off the phone and the taped side will act as a hinge. This will keep the screen in perfect alignment while you clean the screen of fingerprints and lint.
3. Once cleaned, remove the backing (labeled "back" or 2) on the protector and let it lay down into place. Before removing the front backing, use a cotton, non-abrasive cloth to rub it down to assure good adhesion to the phone.
4. Now carefully peel off the front backing (labeled "front" or 1). The tape applied earlier to hold the screen protector in place will peel off with the backing.
Voila! You have a PERFECTLY aligned screen protector.
A. Forget the squeegee. Just use a soft cotton t-shirt or something else that is non-abrasive and rub out the bubbles. Whatever you do, do not use your fingernails (even with a cloth), this will just scratch the screen.
B. To remove trapped lint, take another piece of scotch tape and stick it to the screen on a corner nearest to the lint and lift. It makes lifting the protector from the screen without damaging it a simple task. Next, use one of the provided lint stickers to remove the lint. Generally the lint will remain adhered to the screen protector, not the phone, so slide the sticker sticky-side up between the protector and the phone and lay the protector back down on the sticker to remove the lint.Read more ›
I did have some problem with installing the first one (mine). The second one was within 2 tries. It was just me having a hard time lining things up. Once applied, the bubbles could be squeegeed out easily.
I notice people complaining about screen protectors attracting dust. My trick is to put them on in a dust-free environment - my bathroom.
I simply steam up my bathroom by turning on hot shower. Wait until the bathroom is full of steam and turn off the water. Once the steam dies down, the dust in the air will be carried down to the floor by the moisture. Now, you have a temporarily dust free environment to install your screen protectors. This is an old trick I learned when I was still developing negatives. :-)
Still, be careful when you enter the bathroom since you will be introducing more dust at that time.
When I originally applied the screen protector on my phone, I was having a hard time lining it up so I got 3 small bubbles formed due to dust. This past week, I decided to use the dust lifter that came with the screen protector to try and get rid of the dust. It went great. After 2 weeks, I could still lift up the protector, got rid of the dust, and re-applied it. Now all the bubbles are gone. :-D
The iPhone 5 Oleophobic screen protector is pretty clear, not ultra clear since it does have some anti-fingerprint coating to it but it's pretty good. I actually meant to buy the Ultra Crystal version, but I must have brain farted when I placed the order. I didn't really mind though, and now that I have the screen protector on my phone I'm happy with it. SGP does use a dry application (not wet like other companies), but I personally prefer the dry application types. It's easy to take off and readjust. I've applied different types of screen protectors and dry application is my favorite. SGP really improved their screen protector in the past 2 years.
SIDE NOTE ABOUT PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES
I had both the SGP anti-fingerprint and SGP ultra clear screen protectors for my Droid 2 Global. Both of these were just okay. The cut was a bit too small but manageable. Also, the material they used messed with the Droid 2 Global's light sensor. The anti-fingerprint version was a bit too blurry, which is why I ended up buying the ultra clear version later on. I liked the clear version much better, but it still messed with my light sensor.
END SIDE NOTE
The new Oleophobic screen protector is actually sort of a middle ground between SGP's old anti-fingerprint and ultra clear protectors. It's MUCH clearer than the old anti-fingerprint but it still has some anti-fingerprint qualities. The cut is a lot better on the iPhone 5 than the Droid 2 Global; it fits closer to the edges. AND the best part, it doesn't mess with the light sensor on the phone.Read more ›

Fits perfectly and doesn't peel off. Nice and transparent.
Spigen knows what they are doing. From cases to screen protectors.
