I found the installation process easier than I though, just familiarise yourself with the video and you will be fine. I cured 4 times, pressing the fingerprint scanner for 1 minute inbetween. (Overkill I know) but I didnt even have to re register my fingerprints! It just worked.
However, i left my phone out the case for the next few hours but when I put it in the case it started to peel from the top right hand corner bear the double cut out. The case itself is so tight to the protector that my lock and unlock button isn't working correctly through the case, which because I have pressed so hard I have snapped the screen a little bit.
A little disappointed and it wasn't a cheap disappointment either!
But was disappointed when towards the end of the installation the frame had misplaced the protector higher that it should be..so it covered the speakers at the top and was very annoying so had to take it off..for the £37 I payed for this was very annoying.
Thanks and regards
- Screen clarity through the protector is perfect. Better than any protector I have used on any phone before. The touch to it equally natural.
- No bubbles to deal with whatsoever.
- Installation video is clear, short and easy to follow.
- the Installation process is slightly fiddly, which resulted (for me) in the screen protector settling roughly 2mm lower than it should be. Sounds like nothing, but this results in a weird refraction of some light at the edge of the screen or around the front facing cameras occasionally which is a bit annoying for such an expensive product.
- The fingerprint sensor does still work, but is definitely more temperamental than it was before installation, which can be frustrating if you get three failures in a row to unlock your screen when you just want to get on with using it.
The protector is really good. It's very slim and looks very good on the phone. Touch sensitivity did not change a single bit and the fingerprint works just like before. It's really a pitty it's just 1 millimeter short (it's missing just a tiny fraction from top and bottom) and doesn't cover 100% the screen. Feels like something they could have done, but maybe there's some technical limitation to that.
I broke the screen protector easily trying to clean
the glue off ready for second attempt.
Order a new one under warranty for $10 and arrived fast.
2nd install went flawlessly and am very happy with the quality and clarity of this product.
Fingerprint reader's a bit hit and miss after re scanning but overall a good product for my s10.
Thoroughly wash your hands. If you have long hair take care to have it secured. Thoroughly clean the phone before beginning. Make sure the stock screen protector is removed. Follow the instructions to the letter.
When you are about to do the second set of curings with the UV light I would suggest pressing on the fingerprint sensor and maybe going around the area with the light as you fold your thumb down. Don't hesitate to run the light a couple of extra times. The light will go off at intervals. I would concentrate the light on the corner edges as well.
In the end it will look as nice as the bare screen. Re-register your fingerprints.
I have relatively dry hands and light fingerprints and they often take me several times to enter. This new screen protector definitely made it even more difficult, but it does work. Sometimes I have to lick my thumb, but the overall experience has been worth it to me. This is the only glass screen protector that has worked for me on any of the plus phones I have owned (S7, S9 and S10)
Long version: The installation is certainly not like any other protector I've used, and is quite involved. With that said, the instructions from Whitestone are clear and easy to follow....but I can see how someone could mess it up easily. One thing to note is that there are slight differences between the Mobilefun and Official Whitestone instructions (I followed Whitestone as that's who the warranty is with).
The installation took no more than 15 mins all in, and went without a hitch first try. There were a few air bubbles which weren't meant to appear if the instructions are to be believed, but these were easily removed by gently pressing them to the edge.
Once installed, the finish is very clear, and makes near to no difference to screen feel / sensitivity. The only "issue" is that the glass doesn't site flush at the very edges. We're talking <1mm around the edge so it's barely noticeable upon first impressions. However, after 24 hours these gaps are a bad dust trap. There are noticeable "bits" stuck between the protector and the screen, but again this is only on the very edge. It makes no difference to the screen "experience" but it is a little annoying given the premium price tag.
Another area which may be an issue for some (though not for me) is that its not what you might think from the "edge to edge" description. It covers 100% of the screen, but it doesn't cover 100% of the front glass. There is about a 1.5mm gap between the edge of the protector and the metal frame of the phone.
Lastly, the fingerprint scanner. Contrary to what I've see other users stating, mine works just fine. You do need to make sure you cure the area as per the Whitestone instructions (where they state you need to apply pressure to the sensor area between UV applications) so that may be one area where people are having issues. The other thing to note is that your original fingerprints wont work post installation, you need to remove the old ones stored in the phone and re-scan your fingers again post installation (so make sure you have another locking method such as a pin applied...or you aren't going to be getting back into the phone). While I said mine works, I do need to point out its less responsive / sensitive than before.
Overall its a good product, that I'm happy with, but its not without its flaws. My only concern is its longevity with the gaps previously mentioned. I have visions of them getting snagged on the lip of a pocket and lifting up, but we'll have to wait and see.
Nice fit and no real change in sensitivity. So far so good!
I would recommend this product as a stand alone option but given my experience with it I can't recommend it if you want to use a case as well. I expected more from this price point.
neo hybrid fits and look great
Finger print scanner works but I find I have to be more precise with my finger placement now.
However phone screen cracked a week after installing without damaging tempered glass. How? I dont know. I have a wallet case either that broke the screen or phone was defective .
Wont 100% save you from cracking your screen
The fingerprint sensor is compromised by the screen, I find having to try my prints 3-4 times (and I've re-registered them). Beforehand I'd pretty much hit it first time around.
Also the screen in both of the bottom corners started to come away and chip off in the first couple of days.
it too way too long and austport let the parcel at a unsecure location. you need to change your courier
Thanks for the service
I needn't have worried. After watching the YouTube installation video (admittedly about 20 times) I found it really easy to fit the protector with no problems. No air bubbles, no slight missplacements, everything all okay. Looks tremendous on the phone (a damn site better than the pre fitted plastic film Samsung had installed anyway). No issues with using it with my case and no problems whatsoever with the fingerprint reader.
This was certainly the best £40 (including p&p) I've spent for my phone. Let's see how it lasts. I have no reason not to think it won't last and I'm very, very pleased with my purchase.
