    Hey I recently purchased a skinomi screen protector. I put it on today, set it perfectly and got rid of all the air bubbles. But now that its on it kind of looks like the screen has a glaze on it? Its only been on for like an hour so it might just be because it hasn't dried yet but I'm still worried. Anyone know if it gets better after it dries?

    The wet screen protectors always improve a LOT after 12 to 24 hours.

    Alright cool thanks. Do you think I really should keep my phone off for 12 hours or will 2-3 work?

    Personally? In my opinion, give it time to harden. Using it while still soft can leave permanent scars or grooves.

    Test it by just gently sliding your finger across the surface - very light touch. If you feel it being resistive or tacky or gummy, not smooth, wait a little longer.

    Alright so I turned my phone on after about 3 hours and there are horrible vertical lines. Will they dissipate as the adhesive dries?

    I had similar concerns on my first wet-type screen protector - I thought they lied to me when I bought it.


    But when fully dry, it worked and looked great.

    I would not use any screen protector until you carry your phone with keys in the pocket

    Yeah, it will look HORENDOUS for about the first week, after that, bubbles and imperfections should start fading and by week 2-3, everything should look clear. I'm speaking from experience as I also use Skinomi skin protectors on my Galaxy S2 (still have it on ever since I bought it).
