    I have decided to wait for the PS skins since Wrapsol and SPG have gotten mixed reviews, esp. Wrapsol.

    It looks like a lot of the dry skins actually go on easier and better using a wet install.

    Is that also the case with the PS skins?

    Yes, wet method is the best way to apply.

    I've never heard of anyone installing a powersupport film with liquid... Their products say that they're "static cling" but there is more it it than that. There is a layer of something thats a little sticky on the side that faces the glass, i think you can cause imperfections in this layer if you add liquid. I tried to clean one of the films from a botched instal and would up with with some water marks in this layer that could not be removed.

    Your best bet it to try and get in a dust free environment and apply the screen protector.

    Using the wet method on dry overlays makes it a lot easier to position. The layer of liquid lets you float the overlay into position as a posed to laying it down dry. And the wet method makes it easier to squeegee out bubbles.


    Wet Method = One attempt and you're done

    Dry Method = Maybe get it right on the 2nd or 3rd try
