Good fit - wet film application - no bubbles.
on May 13, 2012
I like this better than dry films. It's almost impossible to get all the bubbles out of a dry film application. It's quite easy to remove nearly every bubble with wet film application.
I used a couple drops of mild hand soap in about a tablespoon of water, then touched a couple drops of that soapy water to the application side of the film. Then I slid the film into place on the glass. Because of the water, the film slides into place quite easily. The kit came with a small plastic squeegee, or you could use a credit card. I slowly squeegeed out the water and bubbles and sopped it up with a paper towel from the sides of the glass. The product also came with a small cloth to clean your glass surface before application, and for wiping the protected screen afterward.
The wet method allows you to try more than once if you mess up on the first try. Carefully wash the film off and start again. (Be careful not to apply more than a couple drops of water to the glass surface of the player, though. Let's not short it out, eh?) I followed a youtube example of how to apply a wet film to the competing apple product. It worked fine.
You may notice a haziness in the film after application. Don't worry - that disappears after a few hours. I'm still using the same film five months later.
The protected surface definitely has a plastic feel that is nowhere near as smooth as the unprotected glass, but you get used to it. It does not impede the use of your fingers.
This came in a slim envelope that looks almost like spam mail. Be careful not to toss it by mistake.
It is inexpensive enough that I'd buy this product again.
