Tips for better results

First of all, make sure that the place that you have chosen to stick the glass, enough light, and the air in the room does not contain a lot of dust, which can settle on the screen and prevent the glass from fully adhering to it. By experience, in domestic conditions, the bathroom is best suited for these purposes, as the high humidity just minimizes the presence of dust.

Thoroughly wash your hands to remove all grease and dirt that can stain the screen and the adhesive layer of protective glass.

Let us go straight to the gluing process. Typically, a set of two wipes is supplied with the protective glass. The first wipe is impregnated with a special alcohol-containing solution. you need to use it to remove all grease stains, fingerprints, dust, and other contaminants from the surface of the screen. The second wipe is dry, you need it to get rid of wet streaks after you wipe the screen with a wet wipe. If the kit does not include a tissue, you can use improvised materials: alcohol and pieces of microfiber or other soft cloth.

A set of special fixing stickers and adhesive tape are usually included with your glass installation kit. If there is any dust or lint left on the screen after wiping it with a cloth, you will need to remove it from the surface with an adhesive tape. Fixing stickers make the process much easier, allowing you to place the glass on the screen more precisely and gently. Again, if you don’t have any of the above in your kit, a regular transparent adhesive tape will come to your rescue. Attach the stickers to the top surface of the glass, remove the film from the sticky layer and, holding the stickers, carefully lower the glass down onto the screen, keeping in mind the location of all the buttons, holes and indicators on the screen. Please be careful: once the protective glass is pasted on, you can’t move it. only remove and reinstall, in the process it is very easy to damage the glass itself or ruin the adhesive layer. Therefore it is advisable to stick it the first time, pre-training in the correct positioning of the glass on the screen while you still have not removed the film from the sticky layer.

Once you have glued the glass, make sure there are no bubbles or dust between the surfaces of the screen and the glass. The air bubble can be removed by smoothly squeezing it out over the nearest edge of the screen. A piece of flat plastic such as a bank card or driver’s license can help. To remove a speck of dust or lint you need to carefully peel off the edge of the glass, remove it with an adhesive tape or tape and put the glass back down on the screen.

Often problems arise when installing protective glass of poor quality. So we advise you to choose this accessory responsibly, do not save money and buy protective glass only from trusted manufacturers, so it will last you a long time and there will be no problems during the sticking and use.

How to glue a protective glass on your tablet

Despite the large area of the screen, installing protective glass on the tablet is almost no different from sticking it on the display of your smartphone. Of course, not counting the fact that the accessory needs to order under the appropriate model of gadget, it will be more and heavier than the standard glass for the smartphone.

It will be a little harder to keep clean. more room for dust. In addition, it will be more convenient to work with a wide adhesive tape. But if you do not have a large reel, you can do with thin tape.

Otherwise, all the necessary steps correspond to the gluing algorithm described in the previous section. You may need to put a little more effort into smoothing the glass and removing air bubbles after installing the accessory to the tablet’s screen.

What kinds of safety glass are

Technology protective accessories do not stand still and develop along with smartphones. Now there are glasses with high-quality oleophobic coating, rounded edges and bezels, repeating the design of gadgets. Conventionally, all types of protection can be divided into three categories:

  • 2D. conventional glass with straight ends, which do not reach the border of the screen about 1 millimeter;
  • 2.5D. these variants have small smooth chamfers on the perimeter, which are combined with the rounding of the case;
  • 3D. special glasses with curved edges for smartphones with a screen going to the side edges.

How to glue a protective glass on your phone

How to remove protective glass from your phone

Because glass is much stronger than protective film, it is also more difficult to remove. Please note that the glass is tightly bonded to the touchscreen, but it is held in place not by the glue, but by the electrostatic properties of the material. Do not use sharp metal objects to remove the protective coating, as you can damage the screen itself. Use a silicone suction cup with care, too, as the protective glass tends to hold better than the screen itself, and you can damage the loops.

  • improperly installed or if there is dust underneath;
  • if the old one is scuffed or visibly damaged;
  • The previously installed glass is completely broken.

In the first case, the protective accessory can be removed using the tab that is on top of the glass. Old, undamaged glass can be removed by picking up its edge with a special tool, plastic card or plectrum (used for playing string instruments, including guitar) and running them under the entire surface of the removed glass, peeling it off the smartphone screen. Very easy to remove the protective glass from the screen silicone suction cup, which pull away the accessory from the screen, while picking it up from the bottom with a plastic card or other non-metallic object. If the glass is broken, it is necessary to carefully remove its individual fragments one by one, first removing the largest piece with an entire corner.

The next step of attaching a protective glass on your iPhone or any other smartphone model is to prepare the tools, materials and devices. For this you will need:

  • Liquid which will be used to clean the screen (antistatic, a special compound for cleaning displays or alcohol);
  • A soft microfiber cloth (often included in the package);
  • Clerical or packing tape;
  • A special scraper or a plastic “credit card”;
  • Knife and scissors.

After that, you can proceed to degrease the surface of the display and remove dust particles. To do this use one of the types of liquids described above. Cover the screen with it and wait until it dries completely. You can also use the commercially available wet wipes. After that, the display is wiped dry with a microfiber cloth. This operation is useful even if you have just removed the factory film in order to remove the glue residue. Before gluing the protective glass on the screen of your smartphone, the device must be turned off.

After that peel off the lower technological film from the protective glass and position it over the display without touching the surface. Aligning the protective glass with the elements of the screen, lower the protection on the display. Hold the glass only along the edges to prevent your fingerprints from getting on the surface.

The accessory glues itself without extra effort and without waiting for it to dry. If there are air bubbles under the glass, you can “kick out” them with a cloth, pushing them on the surface and shifting the air to the nearest edge. If you find dust particles under the protective glass, you will have to remove the accessory from the screen again. The easiest way to remove dust is to use an adhesive layer of scotch tape.

If you are visually satisfied with the gluing result, check the operation of the touch panel. Your smartphone or tablet screen is now securely protected from damage.

Now let’s combine the above information into a few general rules, which will be useful for anyone who has decided to install their own protective glass on the phone:

What exactly is the difference between glass and film

In the manufacturing process, the glass is hardened, making it strong, tough and armored. The thing protects the display from chips and cracks more effectively than a polymer film.

One of the factors for which this device should be purchased is its innovative structure:

  • Flexible. softens a direct impact;
  • Hard. not afraid of contact with sharp objects (you can easily scratch the surface with keys, a knife, a nail. nothing will happen to the monitor anyway).

In the case of a fall the product is covered by a “cobweb” without sharp corners. So the touchscreen stays in one piece, while the window element is time to be replaced. Believe me. it’s cheaper than fixing the device in a service center.

In addition, it is worth noting that the hardened protector consists of 5 layers:

  • elastic silicone base
  • retention layer
  • anti-glare layer
  • protective layer
  • Oleophobic coating (repels grease, oil, water and masks fingerprints)

The phenomenal structure makes the product inconspicuous visually and does not allow it to degrade the quality of the picture. By the way, the speed of response of the touch sensors is also not affected.

So how to glue the miracle creation yourself, so as not to go to the master?

The preparatory step

It is necessary to create the conditions for work. Reinstall the glass in a well-lit room with a high level of humidity, on a level surface. If the air in the room is dry, then conduct a wet cleaning. The adhesive side of the glass should be thoroughly rinsed with water and then dried. Do not be afraid of such actions, because after drying the adhesive functions will return.

When everything is ready, the gluing of the protective glass on the phone begins. First remove the glass and check its condition. To do this, use a bank card is something that is always at hand. Do the work carefully, so the protection is not cracked, glue layer is not spoiled.

How much does it cost?

On AliExpress there are many options, but I will mention the one that I tested.
