These days, smart phones such as the HTC Freestyle are
everywhere, and it is no surprise; you can do almost anything you set your mind
to with them. However, phones still remain fragile as they're still pieces of
technology so it's necessary to take certain precautionary measures to keep
them protected. This article will describe the correct procedure for properly
installing a screen protector on the HTC Freestyle.
To begin, the first step would be to wipe any remaining dust
and murk off the LCD screen of the HTC Freestyle. Prior to installing the
screen protector, there should not be any leftover dust, smudges, grime, or
dirt on the screen. If some unwanted dirt were there after installing the
protector, it'll clearly be visible stuck underneath the screen film. Getting
rid of this also makes it unlikely that you'll have to replace the screen
protector later on. If you do this precautionary cleaning, you'll guarantee the
screen protector can be applied without any future issues.
The next step into installation is to properly cut the
protector to make sure it properly fits the size of the phone's screen. This
can be done easily enough with a pair of scissors, but you might want to look
into a box knife and a ruler to help you ensure you make a clean and accurate
cut. If you make a sloppy cut, it'll still fit but won't look nice on your HTC
Once the screen has been cleaned and the protector has been
fitted in place, the next step is to peel the screen protector away from the
backing that supports it. You will need to do this carefully and slowly to
avoid tearing of the protector or wrinkling, as both of these will probably
mean you will need to get a new protector for your HTC Freestyle. Once you have
about an inch or so of the protector peeled away from its supporting film, then
you can line up the top part of the screen protector with the top part of your
HTC Freestyle's touch screen.
To conclude this process, press the protector right on the
screen of the phone. You might want to use a plastic scrapper tool or a credit
card to push the screen protector from bottom to top; this will guarantee that
the air bubbles underneath the screen protector won't show up after
installation. Air bubbles can be very annoying to deal with, because once they
are present, it then becomes impossible to get rid of them without removing the
screen protector and installing a new one.
As you can see, it pays to pay a bit of attention to
procedures that might appear to be simple, such as the installation of screen
protectors on smart phones like the HTC Freestyle. Along the way, it cannot hurt
to look into some of the many HTC Freestyle accessories available such as aHTC Freestyle charger, battery, and of course a HTC Freestyle screen protector.
