Hi guys!

Decided to take the plunge yet again and purchase a WhiteStone S9 screen protector seeing how I loved the S8 one so much (and because I seem to have no sense with my money).

So I went and preordered it from mobile fun and followed this YouTube video to install it and I think it came out great!

Just wanted to share this with you guys and see how you're finding yours. Are you guys getting WhiteStone Dome or have you found something better for the S9?

Sounds like a mucher cheaper way of doing virtually the same thing. Will the loca glue need curing in the same way as the Whitestone do you reckon?

Love to hear how you get on anyway

Already installed my Whitestone as well. Had it for the S8+, Note 8, and now S9+. It seems every version, they improve the process. The Note 8 and S9+ both utilize the tipping over method. However, my Note 8 did not have a sticker to cover the speaker, or the pads on the side to clean up excess glue. The sticker for the speaker was nice, but I didn't bother with the liner pads on the side. As before, great product from Whitestone.

Hello,

I just installed the Whitestone Dome Glass on my S9 + and I’m happy.

Since the S7 edge I had to stop its protection in tempered glass because it did not stick and luck luck I broke my phone screen, I look everywhere on the internet and I saw the one that is expensive its real … 45 € (for me: France) except that 45 € on a phone has 959 € … I think it can do it, all his past and it fits perfectly sends really heavy!

To see in the long term ..

I don't know how true my reservations are, but I do have some regarding screen protectors using LOCA. When you remove the screen protector, the glass will come off easily (in most cases anyways) but the adhesive stays behind. The adhesive isn't something you can easily remove without some sort of solvent or manually scraping it. That's my only reservation on these kinds of screen protectors -- should I mess up the installation, or the glass cracks and requires removal -- the adhesive isn't going to come off easily.

mine came off perfectly clean on my S9 plus, i broke the whitestone and had to replace it. literally no residue left on phone, all loca stayed on tempered glass. big problem i see with whitestone is the warranty replacement process, they require old to be sent back before a replacement under warranty. for the price they need to allow you to request warranty and get new one on the way asap. the loca tempered glass seems to be the best option imho

I love how it looks like you don't even have a protector on until you look at the top by the earpiece! Super clean.
