When purchasing any type of screen protector it’s must easier to purchase from a vendor that cuts it to the size of your device, whether you need one for your smart phone or if you need a specific iPad screen protector. This eliminates the need to cut it to the dimensions of your device and ensures the lines are straight. If your hands are unsteady, it also guarantees you’ll have a straight line instead of curves and jags.
You may not have known, but all screen protectors are not alike. An ultra clear protector has a smooth finish and is transparent so you don’t notice any lack of quality. An anti-glare protector is suited to prevent both glare from bright lights and the sun, and doesn’t show fingerprints. Privacy protectors make it possible to shield personal information from outsides sources, because when the information is viewed from an angle it cannot be read. Mirror screen protectors are more of a novelty and turn into a mirror when the device’s screen is turned off.
Some features should be present regardless of what type you get. Any iPhone screen protector should avoid using any type of glue to stick to the screen. Instead, it should adhere with static so it can be peeled off in the future, simply by placing a piece of scotch tape on the corner and lifting upwards.
When applying a screen protector you should first wipe the device with a lint-free cloth to ensure no lint or dirt gets trapped under it. Clean off any fingerprints or smudges as well. Apply the screen protector and air bubbles will typically dissolve within 2 days. An additional benefit of any good screen protector is that it won’t slide or move when applied, ensuring you don’t get any bunched up edges.
