Default Anker Screen Protector (Terrible Experience)

I ordered this from Amazon and it was 3 days late (I am on prime). When I got it, it wasn't what was shown on their amazon site. It didn't come with a micro fiber, dust removal tape, or anything except the screen protectors. The first one was a completely different material and created massive bubbles and was so rough and covered in a white smudge. The second one ended up working like a screen protector should. Overall. I don't know why this happened. I heard so many good things about this brand :/

Hey dude, I own the same exact product. Here is my experience with the screen protectors.

First off, there are two layers of protective plastic. There is one on each face of the protector. In between the two protective films is the actual screen protector. This threw me off at first because I was also getting tons of bubbles and smudges (since I was applying the wrong film). If you cannot distinguish which is the actual screen protector, look for the thickest piece.

As for the missing add-ins, contact Anker. They have great customer service.

Hope I helped!

I know it was a protective film. I removed them both but still didn't work. =/

Definitely contact Anker about this. They will probably send you a new package. There must have been some sort of mistake if it didn't even come with a microfiber cloth, dust removal tape and a bubble removal card.

That's weird. I ordered their Matte protectors twice already and both came on time. You can actually get Amazon to reimburse you if it arrives late. As for the protectors if you use the hinge method they should be bubble free. I received the first one with a little bent corner though but it didn't affect the protector. I also received the cloth and dust remover in both packages. Anker does have amazing customer service though.

I contacted them and said that what I reviewed was from an Amazon warehouse and not them. They are sending a new order ASAP.
