1) If you look at the screen protector, on the bottom end of one side, there's a little half circle over there. I put that on the bottom of my phone near the search button.

2) I was using a credit card to take out the air bubbles and apparently there was something sticky on it -_-. So it left some little sticky marks on the screen protector and some wont come off. It's really tiny but still it's pissing me off. Is it worth taking it off and putting a new one on?

Thanks! ^_^
That cut out is for the top left of the phone screen for the sensor there. If you look closely with some light on your screen you will see it above the t and c in the htc logo. its the same shape as the cutout. I think its either the proximity or light sensor. Looks almost like a bubble under the screen but its not . These protectors are perfect. Thanks for the tip!

I also used some water to apply mine. Just ran it under water then shook it off. Then I lined it up and applied with a credit card. For the concave I just used my thumbs to smooth it out. When I was finished you could see some residue under the screen, but after a day or so its perfect.

If you use water, pull your battery first. Use a screen cloth to soak up the water bubbles when your are pressing them out with your thumbs. You need very little water to do this.

By all four corner I have air under the protector. Corners on the top are 99% okay and the bottom right corner is 90% too. But the bottom left corner at the Home button seems a little bit terrible. See my attached photo.


Is it a tip for hide away this air bubble? I tried all with my fingernails and credit card.
Guys, yesterday morning I removed this air bulb successful with a quick hard rubbering move with my fingernails. Today the air bulb still not there! I'm very happy! This screenprotector really the best! Thx for the suggestion AZ2ENVY!

Just for clarification, whenever you guys refer to rubbing those corners/curves, what you mean is you are making a scratching motion over and over until it sits right? Also, How did you line up the face detection sensor cut out, I noticed in the picture the circle is actually slightly bigger than the sensor right? So did you aim it so that there is just a slight gap? Close pictures of that area would be appreciated!

I just went through 3 of these trying to get the edges to stick down but nothing worked. Have thrown them in the bin.

Will try to find other ones that actually stick down.

First I tried so with this repeately moving, but it was unsuccessful. Then I tried heating the phone with gaming on angrybirds. I though it will be heated the screenprotector too. But no...
Then in a morning after I waked up, with my fingernails I made only one (but definitely strong) scratching and it was successful!
Now only the right bottom corner is 99%, but with this I can live.

Ordered mine on the 7th, claimed it was shipped on the 8th and nothing has arrived yet The seller has gone back to me saying he will resend them to me. Hopefully they will arrive this time...

Bought the OP's screen protector. Put them on today afternoon. After using it for 5-6 hours, I must say, they're awesome! (especially for the price) I put it a little too much on the right, but it's fine. Will take care when I install the next one. But gonna keep this one for as long as it sticks. Money well spent. Thanks.

Does anyone know if sending him a message ensures that he will ship it faster? I live in the same state as him and it still has not arrived. I just dont want to message him and piss him off, he might send me like the oldest screen protectors he has or something

Congratulation!

I see you have air-bulbs on the corners too.

Ordered mines on the 18th and they arrived today. It's amazing how close they come to completely covering the screen. I plan on installing them on me and my wife's phone sometime this weekend.

Thanks OP.
