Curved screen protectors?

Post by unzippy » Sun Feb 24, 2019 5:10 am

Those of you out there that have applied curved screen protectors for you phone with superglue and UV, would you again?

Wot!?

Why?

That seems awfully extreme. When you crack the screen protector and need to replace it, what’s the technique for removing it?

I have no idea, that's why I'm asking.

But it's definitely a thing:

A friend of mine repairs phones and has a cryogenic chamber to remove the glass on expensive phones and tablets, maybe that’s the method needed?

Just buy a normal screen protector for it if you want one. Can you imagine the faff of trying to remove it later with superglue

A film type one will be easier to fit, because you won’t need to be so accurate placing it in the phone

We use “Zagg” at work. They seem good.

I expect most of the brand names are equally good/bad
