Not so long ago, Whitestone got in touch with me and asked if I would like to try out their unique screen protector for the iPhone X. I had seen a few reviews on the product and I had also watched a few videos, but I really wanted to have a look for myself. (If you want to skip straight to my YouTube review, please head to the bottom of the page).
I will start by saying that this screen protector uses adhesive to stay attached to the screen of the phone, however that’s not the only reason for the adhesive. You see, with a normal glass screen protector, it simply sits on top of the screen of the phone. This can sometimes cause coloured banding or wavy lines when you are looking at the screen. It can also produce a dot matrix effect and coloured lines around the edges of the screen protector.
As there is adhesive between the Whitestone Dome Glass and the screen, the result is a crystal clear image, and it really does look very good!
If you use screen protectors (and I guess most of us do), you lose some of that cripsy clarity and brightness that you get with a naked screen. The Whitestone Dome seems to eliminate that issue altogether.
Installing the screen protector seemed like a massive task at first, however after reading through the instructions it wasn’t actually too bad. I really did take my time though and probably spent about 30 minutes in total making sure I fully understood what I was getting into.
Here are the steps though that I took during the install…
- You have a plastic frame that the phone sits in during installation and some cleaning wipes to clean the screen before you start. Next you put a sticker over the earpiece and place an absorption pad either side of the phone, which will collect any adhesive that might seep out from under the screen protector during the install.
- There is a small plastic tab the you insert into the plastic frame, and then you have to put a plastic bridge onto the frame. This will hold the adhesive bottle steady and in the correct position.
- Finally, you twist the end of the adhesive bottle and wait for about 30 seconds, so that the bottle is fully empty. You can then remove the bridge an place the glass screen protector in place. If you have inserted the plastic tab correctly, the screen protector will not actually touch the screen yet.
- Lastly, press on the bottom edge of the plastic frame, so the adhesive moves to the middle of the screen, and then remove the plastic tab which will of course allow the screen protector to now touch the screen of the phone.
- Now that the screen protector is in place, you can remove the phone from the plastic frame and use the UV light to cure the adhesive. I spent about 3 or 4 minutes on this curing process, just to make sure the adhesive was fully cured.
So there you have it! Quite a few steps involved, but certainly not too bad, as long as you take your time. I have had it on my phone for a while since making the video, and I have to say so far it has done a great job.
