    Great question. I hate them. Have had this phone 3 days and have already gone through 4. The one I have on is not great and I had to order more even. Lol. It was worse last year so maybe I'm getting better

    I seen a very simple way once .. get some regular tape , like scotch tape , the simple stuff u wrap presents with.. clean the screen really good with a good glass cleaner .. now place the tape on the screen making sure to over lap & long enough so it hangs off the edges.. this will trap any dust after you have cleaned it really well.. now peel the tape off & then immediately place your new screen protector on :) .. hope this helps

    The install instructions with the Anker were flawless on 2 phones for me.

    I use latex gloves too so I don't leave prints on it or touch the adhesive side by accident. Once you do, you're screwed.

    I always do the book cover method.

    Line it up perfectly and then tape it around to the side of the phone with 3 pieces of tape. So the screen protector opens like a book cover and every time you place it down on the phone it'll always be perfectly inline. Now take as long as you want to clean the screen and remove dust. When your ready peal away the back side of the screen protector and close it back down on the screen.

    ERS covers come with a clip on that make lining up so easy.

    Go to a store and get them to fit one of the Belkin ones with the special machine. I'm rubbish at fitting screen protectors.
