Apply a Screen Protector to a Smartphone

If you want your phone to last without any scratches or cracks, you have to take care of the screen. The easiest way to do this is to apply a screen protector which will help keep your device scratch free. There are kits for screen protectors for almost every phone.

Step 1: Find a flat, clean surface in a dry place that you can work. Applying screen protectors is a delicate process, and you want to be able to concentrate on it so as to avoid error.

Step 2: Make sure you clean the screen of your phone. A lot of kits come with a spray you can use for this purpose. If yours doesn’t, a microfiber cloth will work fine. Be careful to remove all dust.

Step 3: Carefully align your protector so that the slots in the plastic for the buttons line up with the buttons on your phone. Take your time doing this and make sure everything is straight before laying the protector flush.

Step 4: Press out any air bubbles with a credit card or cardboard. Some kits come with a rubber scraper just for this purpose that works well, but a card is fine if you don’t have anything else.
