Thread: Samsung Galaxy S3 screen protector

  1. #1

    Samsung Galaxy S3 screen protector

    Is there one that is better than the rest? With less bubbling? I see Zagg is common, but there are several different options within Zagg.

    I have a samsung galaxy exhilirate. I first chose a pack of 5 screen protectors off amazon for a couple dollars, which worked fine but eventually they shrank somehow upon which they no longer stuck to the screen, so I ended up going through all 5. Then I purchased a cheap one off ebay for a dollar something, and so far its still working just fine. I don't think the expensive screen protectors are really much different.

    I've never had an issue with bubbles, its more about being careful applying the protector than which protector you use. Lint on the screen when applying is the worst cause, because that bubble can't be pushed out. Those with limited hand function should probably have someone apply the protector for them.

    I think no need for a screen protector. Samsung Galaxy S3 has Gorilla Glass. It is tough stuff!

    Ugh. After you get the bubbles all out from under the screen protector there was a final sticker/tab you remove. When I removed the sticker/tab it left a sticky residue on the top of my screen protector. What would I use to get that off?

    Did the protector have 2 tabs, one underneath and one on top that said they were to help remove the backing? If so, its the same protector I bought last and had the exact same issue. But when I contacted the seller, they said the protector actually comes as 3 parts, not 2, and that if I only removed the sticker and was left with residue then I hadn't removed the top part off the actual protector part. and sure enough when I took another look at my phone and used my nail at a corner I was able to remove the top sheet off.

    Thank you sooooooooooooooooooo much. I doubted I did anything wrong, but sure enough the top layer came off!
    I was pretty disgusted at what it had done to my phone. The brand is Otterbox and the instructions don't show that step, neither did youtube videos.

    Thanks again.

    True, but in reviews people complain about scratches. I keep a lot of junk in my purse including keys. I figure it's better to be safe!

    I thought this thread was a spambot thread.
