How does steaming help remove dust? And wouldn't it make the screen like moist-ish?

I got the ultra thin .2 mm
it went on nice and had a really nice feel
but sadly after 1 day and 1 drop the sigen glass shattered

i guess it did its job but a single 2 foot drop while getting out a car
i would of hoped it would of took a little more than that
i also blame the thin lipped rim of my case its a very thin profile case and with the thickness of the glass and the low profile made for a bad
match my case has a 1.0 mm lip and with .2mm thickness on the glass means i had a .8mm clearance from the screen and the ground so any
falls that puts the phone screen side down is disastrous
I still may get a replacement when i can afford it and a case with a higher lip

When you are in steamed room, i.e. bathroom with hot water running, the dust wouldn't stick to the screen, thus helping the installation easier w/o anything on the screen.

The humidity in the air weighs down the dust particles, which decreases the chance that specs of dust will collect on the screen between the time that you clean it and the time that you apply the screen protector, even if it's only a few seconds. I ordered the GLAS.tR NANO SLIM (0.23mm) and applied it last night in the bathroom after showering and there is not a single spec of dust under the glass. So far I am quite happy with it. Can't even tell it's there aside from the cut-out around the ear speaker and it feels great to the touch, far better than any other vinyl or plastic protector.

Ah nice. And yeah, that makes sense. At first I read you say I applied it while showering and I was like woah

previously, I had a one x, so I know how strong the gorilla glass was, and didnt like the hassle of screen protectors, except for how easy and smoothly my fingers would slide on the matte screen covers.

buying the s5, I didnt think I was gonna use any screen protectors. but my brother showed me his spigen glass protector and I was instantly sold.

not because of the scratch protection, but because of the oleophobic coating. this coating makes the screen so much easier to use and slide around on. the stock screen also doesnt work well in a humid place with moisture, like a steamy showered room. the gorilla glass becomes all tacky and hardy to use wih moist or damp fingers.
the spigen screen protector makes it easy to slide around on, and the water on the screen doesnt give false readings to the digitzer like the stock glass does.

the other thing I like a lot about this is that with the cover on, the exposed home button is now flush with the screen, it just feels more comfortable and "normal", especially if you utilize the finger print scanner. I bought the .2mm version.

my brother has the .23mm version, im not sure how the s4 varies in physical specs, but my brother noticed immediately that my screen glass was thinner than his. he also has a little gel sticker insert to raise up his home button to be used with his cover. he opted for the slightly thicker glass for durability purposes.

I am content with having the the thinnest cover because I dont anticipate dropping my phone much, and I already have a sturdy enough case on.

I dont know about other brands, but I am perfectly content and very happy with my purchase. 10/10 on the reccomendations factor.
I like to modify my body, my car, and now my phone

Personally, even though I know it's ok, but I get really uncomfortable with phones and water next to each other haha
