Easiest application, dirties easily…
Reviewed in the United States on September 26, 2021
This is my first time using a Spigen screen protector as I normally go with the other brands that have good reviews. However, seeing as how other Spigen screen protectors had extremely positive and glowing reviews, I thought I would spend a little more and give them a fair try.
The box came with two applicators with the screen protectors built in, wet cleaning wipes, a dry cleaning cloth, lint stickers, instructions, a squeegee, and a small misc card. Installation itself was a tiny bit confusing at first since this was my first time using this style, but after a rereading or two I was like “oh okay” and it was smooth sailing from there (my personal instructions are in the last paragraph).
Transparent thoughts- I love how easy and precise the application is, but wow does it get dirty fast. Other screen protectors I’ve bought (I’m talking half the price for a 3 pack) have both been bubble free installation and stayed very clean for a while before losing the oleophobic coating. This one I’ve had for less than 24 hours and it’s a lint magnet, has prints all over it, and cleans very smudgy which is terrible. I will make both of these last as long as I can, but I won’t be buying them again. I’m super picky, so if you don’t care about the little stuff and just want your phone protected, this is the way to go. Anyways, all in all they’re not perfect but not the worst I’ve ever tried. I give them an honest 4/5.
In case anyone is confused or needs more in depth instructions: wipe the phone with a wet wipe, wipe with the dry cloth, use a big lint sticker all over, make sure the applicator has the side with the pull tab face down (the side with the sticker with the numbers 1-3 should be face up), peel and quickly place the applicator down onto the phone, press in the middle and slide from 1 to 3, wait 30 seconds, peel from 3 to 1, lift up applicator, peel the tab off the screen protector, then squeegee out bubbles and you’re done. TIP: if you’re a perfectionist like me who despises even a single lint under the protector, before applying the applicator to the phone hold the screen protector in the right hand while blowing and getting ready to peel, then give one last good blow and very quickly peel and apply. This will ensure you get a flawless application without having to lift up the glass to try and sticker off any lint.
Thank you for reading, I hope this helps someone out. I’ve attached photos including one of the back so people know this is a real review from a real paying customer with a real iPhone 13 Pro Max lol.
