Guide: Perfect Screen Protector Installation Technique

Ok, you may think we all know how to properly install a screen protector on a device´s screen but I bet more than one of us has left some bubbles or dust on it when applying. XDA member BillTheCat wrote a complete guide on the technique he used to successfully apply that plastic protector without any pain.
The member mentions that the guide is intended for self-adhesive (non-water based) films, but should work for other types as well.
Please let us know if this method has worked for you and on which device.

Guide: Perfect Screen Protector Installation Technique

After reading about the frustrations of those of you who have had trouble installing screen protectors, and your disappointment with the results, I’ve written this guide to help those of you who suffer from bubbles and dust after installation or who just generally struggle with getting the screen protector applied.

This guide illustrates techniques I’ve used successfully over many PDAs and phones, and each time I get a PERFECT install, no dust or bubbles and almost always perfectly even edge-to-edge positioning. Yes, you’ll need a steady hand and a bit of practice, but it’s not as bad as you think, and this technique has worked for me every time.

I can STRONGLY recommend the WriteShield Crystal from Pocket PC Techs, or the Vikuiti films which are made by 3M. Don’t let the cheesy packaging of the 3M protectors fool you if you see them in the store – they’re quality stuff. What I find different about these two brands is that they seem to have a harder more scuff/scratch resistant surface. I had a WriteShield on my HD2 for over a year without ever noticing any damage to it.

Now, on to the procedure.

Continue to the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
