The kit also includes what right there on the back of the Kit's own box are called "Dust Removal Stickers", as well as here on the item page... these are identical to the dust removal stickers the company includes with their other screen protector kits, for use to REMOVE DUST before applying the protector... however, if you actually read the super tiny text on the "Dust Removal Stickers" included with this Switch Kit, they say "Please DON'T use this to remove dust from the Nintendo Switch". Whaaat?!?! And these stickers don't have that text on them in the other kits, those are identical aside from tiny text saying "Dust Removal Stickers". So why even include these with the Switch and call them Dust removal stickers on this page and on the product box? But yeah, even though the box says "Dust removal Stickers", don't use them for dust because the adhesive on them, which the company was apparently too lazy to change for specific use on the Switch, is too sticky when on the Switch screen and will leave adhesive residue behind.
This is so unfortunate, having a brand new Switch screen completely ruined by a kit that was intended to protect that screen. And even moreso because it was completely avoidable had the company simply included Switch-friendly wipes and dust removal stickers, or not included them at all.
The screen protector itself is pretty great looking and relatively easy to apply without any bubbles at all. There are a few very small specks/inclusions that look a bit like specks of dust suspended within the protector glass itself. Hopefully that is a fluke/rare case. It should also be noted that once the screen protector was applied to the now damaged screen, the streaking, which is so very bad and stood out like a sore thumb, is now pretty much invisible due to the protector adhesive sealing to the surface. However, the entire point of this purchase was to protect the Switch screen from damage, and this kit did exactly the opposite, it destroyed the screen. Now the only way to keep the display looking nice will be by having these protectors applied to the screen. It will never look undamaged again without one.
Bottom line: Had the manufacturer given more care to providing materials safe for the Switch Screen, this would have easily been a raving 5 star review. I highly recommend the protector itself, but not this kit as a whole. Play it safe and do not use the included "Wet Cleaning Wipes" on your Switch screen, nor the included "Dust Removal Stickers". The protector itself looks great and applies incredibly easily, so just use safer means of cleaning before applying the protector.

I'm several months in at this point and it's still firmly attached without a single mark on it.
Touch sensitivity has not been effected at all by having it installed. It also doesn't effect the docking process.
Normally a screen protector compromises the feel of the display, but as the switch display is plastic, having this on actually makes it feel better. Also, a complaint that I hear from most owners is that the dock actually scratches the display due to rubbing the edges over time. The screen protector resists this very well due to the glass being much harder than the plastic.
If you have a switch without 1 of these installed then you're no getting the best experience, but you're also simply not protected.

I've put countless screen protectors on various devices over the years, and I can honestly say none have been as high quality and effortless to install as this one. It comes with alcohol wipes to clean the screen, then it's just a case of holding the side tabs to carefully line it up while you lower it into position...then stand back and watch as the adhesive spreads perfectly from one side of the screen to the other. Not a bubble or dust speck in sight!
Compared to the rival product I tried and ended up binning in frustration, this was a dream to apply.
Having used different brand screen protectors for years, I'll now be on the lookout for amFilm screen protectors for every future device I own.
Practice manoeuvring the tempered glass panel into place. Practice a lot, as the final application must be swift - dust particles accumulate with frightening speed.
Watch youtube videos for demonstrations of applying the screen
Take your time carefully cleaning the Switch's plastic screen; be aware that the wet alcohol cleaning cloths are very wet indeed.
Dry off the screen with the Dry wipe, and apply the protector as quickly, but precisely as possible - as soon as the film is removed from the glass, it, and the Switch's screen, will begin attracting dust.
I used the 'bathroom methid' - creating stream via the shower to help reduce dust in the air.
I also used a headlamp torch to illuminate dust - once it's trapped under the glass it isn't getting out again!
Take your time swiping out any air bubbles which may form.
I had to use both protectors as the Switch screen was gathering dust after I'd removed the film on the glass panel. Ended up with dust in both screen and panel - cleaned the switch screen again, and used the second panel.
Result is as close to perfect as I could get without access to a NASA clean room...
Take time. Practice. Try not to panic!
The protector only sticks to the screen the first time you apply it, which means you get two attempts to apply a screen correctly. After my 1st attempt, I had to remove the protector because it had a large air-bubble in the middle, but also because there was lots of dust between the protector and the screen. My 2nd attempt was better because I managed to avoid any air bubbles, but there is still lots of dust between the screen and the protector. I followed all of the instructions and managed to get the screen dust-free (or so I thought) before each attempt. As a result, it means I'm left with several noticeable bits of dust stuck between my screen and the protector. I took about an hour for the process to carefully apply the screens
If you are not overly fussed about dust, then this protector is probably great for the Switch - once applied, it is barely noticeable and should help protect the screen. However, if you're someone with very high attention-to-detail, then you may wish to research about avoiding dust when adding a screen protector before purchasing any protectors. There may be other brands on the market that deal with dust better than this one did for me.
