The screen protection is very important, especially nowadays, when mobile phones have edge to edge displays. Once we have chosen the necessary screen protection for our mobile phone, we face another challenge - how to actually apply the tempered glass or film protector correctly. In this article, we will show you how to do it, give you helpful tips and also tell you how to take off the glass or film protector comfortably.
The display of a mobile phone is, without a single doubt, one of the most important parts of a phone. But at the same time, it is one of the most fragile ones. Just a moment of inattention, your phone falls to the ground, and an annoying crack appears. Sometimes the crack doesn't affect the functionality, other times, though, the phone stops working. Replacing the display is not cheap. However, protecting your phone with adhesive foil or glass is significantly cheaper. There are many reasons that speak in favour of obtaining phone screen protection in the form of foil or glass:
Foil or, even better, tempered glass is a simple and inexpensive way to protect your phone from damage. Moreover, you don't have to worry about not being able to stick the foil or glass on. The procedure is simple and can be found below for both protection options.
You will find a wide selection of glass and film screen protectors on Alza. But always look for those that are compatible with your phone model, not just the brand. Only then you can be sure that it will perfectly fit the screen of the device. They also have precise cutouts for buttons, speakers, front camera, etc.
The package always contains a glass or film screen protector, including useful accessories for easier installation. These accessories often include a damp cloth, a dry cloth and a spatula. Sometimes the package also includes a sticker to remove dust from the display.
How to install a glass screen protector on your iPhone, Samsung and other phones? First, you need to clean the phone screen properly. It is always a good idea to minimize the possibility of dust getting on the surface of the display after you have thoroughly cleaned the display. Therefore, apply the protector itself in a place where there is not a lot of dust. You probably don't have access to a hermetically sealed chamber, but you should be fine in a room without an open window.
Just like with installing a glass protector, when installing a film protector, try to avoid places with a lot of dust or air circulation. For easier manipulation with the film, there is a trick that makes it easy to position the foil correctly on the screen. So what is this trick about?
Peeling a glass or film screen protector off is a much easier process. Before peeling off a protector, you can use a hair dryer to get the glue warm and soft. Carefuly heat the glass up with a hair dryer, but from a sufficient distance to avoid damaging the device. Even without a hair dryer, you will probably be able to peel it off without any problems. It is important that the glass does not break during removal, as it could cause a damage to the screen or cause an injury.
Installation of screen protection doesn't necessarily have to be a nightmare and can be made easier. Foil in particular can be problematic due to air bubbles. The adhesive liquid will help here, its advantage is that it is possible to move the film, even if it has been already placed on the display. Once you are satisfied with the position of the film on the screen, simply push the liquid with a spatula from the center of the device to the edges directly into the cloth. You can also see it in the video below. You'll get the liquid, for example, with Screenshield film protectors.
Some brands have even more sophisticated system for applying the protective glass and films. Among such manufacturers is for example Whitestone Dome Glass. In addition to the adhesive liquid, they also use UV light to finish the process. It's an interesting and effective way to glue tempered glass. UV light comes from a special lamp, which can be bought as a part of the package or separately.
This causes the applied layer of liquid under the glass to harden due to the exposure of UV rays. This method is suitable for installation of the 3D glass, which is a glass that is curved at the sides exactly according to the curved edges of the phone. Such glass can thus completely protect the entire front side of the device.
Guide stickers help with a precise installation of a glass screen protector. They are included in each Alza Guard glass protector package and are used as follows:
