How to Apply Screen Protectors Perfectly Every Time

One of the greatest challenges nearly all smartphones and tablets owners must face is applying a screen protector. It’s not something that any beginner will be able to accomplish immediately, but rather, a task that requires minutes of intense preparation and scrupulous planning, a patient and composed state of mind, and meticulous application. Of course, you can also get a someone else to do it for you, but there aren’t many things in the world more satisfying than a perfectly applied screen protector that you did all by yourself.

So although not quite mobile development, knowing how to install a screen protector on your smartphone or tablet without those pesky bubbles, dust, and lint getting trapped underneath is quite important and practical. Fortunately, XDA Senior Member BillTheCat has written a fantastic tutorial on doing just that.

Originally written back in 2011, BillTheCat has continuously updated the tutorial with methods and techniques that work well. The process is quite ingenious really, requiring a little bit of sticky tape, a wiping cloth and cleaning solution, and a suitable environment. The tutorial then continues describing and explaining each step of the application, with multiple images of each step providing visual guidance.

BillTheCat has also included a note on choosing your screen protector, providing a useful insights on different options available, from the cheap ones to the pricier options. The process detailed in the tutorial is intended for self-adhesive, non-water based screen protectors, but can also work for those requiring a spray method.

So for anyone who is struggling with applying a screen protector, check out BillTheCat’s guide over in its original forum thread to find out more.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?
