How to make sure your screen protector is best aligned to your phone!

Some day, you may be browsing the web, reading a new blog or article, and all of a sudden, reality smacks you in the face.. You have misaligned your screen protector.

It’s good practice to change your screen protector when needed. Put on a new one on as edges start to chip. Chips usually develop further and make their way into the use-space of your screen. The worst is when these develop into thin, long cracks, because I’ll start to play with them by bending them back and forth. I’ve noticed that doing this is actually like playing with tiny shards of glass, and that more than once, I have cut my thumb while handling my phone. These can even slice into my pants pockets if I’m not careful and make holes in my clothes! So for all these reasons, it’s pretty important to insure your screen protector is unscathed.
