Tricky To Get On iPhone 8 Plus Because Of Curve, But It Does *FIT*
on November 5, 2017
Still my go-to screen protection next to a case. I love TECH ARMOR'S BALLISTIC GLASS SCREEN PROTECTORS ever since I used them on my iPhone 4s.
I bought them for my iPhone 6plus and it kept the screen free from scratches and cracks even though I dropped my phone many times. One time the protector cracked after I dropped the phone, but the screen was just fine.
So I just got the iPhone 8plus and I had to come back to get TECH ARMOR'S screen protectors.
I did have a harder time putting this one on because the protector needs to be INSIDE the edged curve of the screen otherwise it will lift up (and remain with an air bubble like in one of the reviewer's pictures), so you have to be careful that it is inside the curve. On the 6plus the edge of the screen wasn't like that.
The easiest way to do this is to line up the cut-out openings for the ear speaker and the home button, which is how they recommend on the instruction sheet, but that's hard to do when you remove the backing to stick it on the screen because it's hard to tell if the cut-outs are lined up properly until you get in really close and by that time the protector is sticking to the screen.
What I learned to do is line them up first and then use either packing tape or artist's tape and tape down one side of the screen protector to the phone, so that the protector opens like a hinge BEFORE you remove the backing and stick it on. Then you can clean and dust the screen and then remove the backing and the tape hinge acts as a guide. You'll still need to make sure it's aligned properly and make adjustments, but this makes it easier. And it helps to run the shower on hot to create some humidity in the room so that dust particles won't be floating around the air.
This time I messed up and I couldn't get the bubble out of the corner, even though I moved and re-positioned it. The second protector in the box I dropped in the sink and cracked the corner so I couldn't use it. Luckily I bought 2 sets (one set was for another phone) so I was lucky that I had a back up.
That one went one without a hitch and no lifting on the corners or edges. I did get a speck of dust under it causing that teeny bubble, but luckily it's on the black, non-viewing part near the home button so I'm leaving well enough alone.
With the screen protector on the phone it minimizes glare from overhead lights (at least on the lit parts of your screen) and it will keep finger prints to a minimum (but you'll see the smudges and stuff when the screen is off), and that's on top of keeping your screen safe from scratches and cracks.
I just sent out an email to TECH ARMOR asking for another set. They used to send out replacements for free (and I hope they still do that) as long as you put down your Amazon order number.
If you don't want to risk a cracked screen buy TECH ARMOR BALLISTIC GLASS.
