Clean screen with included wet wipes, dry screen, and apply coating. Let settle for 10 minutes and then polish with included dry wipe. Screen can now be used, but avoid scratching for at least 24 hours.
@bakerzdosen i used jb weld on the back of my s7 to cover some cracks radiating from one corner. it worked well and looked nice. i used blue masking tape to keep the sides clean and make a straight line where the jb weld ended. i removed the tape when the epoxy was thick but not hard yet. fast easy and cheap fix
@hchavers-Did you not get the sarcasm? Since this item was only $5, wouldn’t my 1st sentence tell anyone [with a scintila of common sense] that I have very little money? How much is my secret, as how much you have is yours.
@hanzov69- Thanks, for the heads-up, Bro. My Bad! I just overlooked the word ‘assets’, so i guess i’m just an ass who needs assistance in assessing where I’m at in life’s assembly line. BTW, I had taken some T-3s, so i couldn’t have been more calm, but why PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK I’M HAVING A DAMNED CONIPTION FIT IS Fn BEYOND ME I’M A DAM RATIONAL, REASON-ABLE, LOVING PERSON, WITH NO Fn PROBLEMS WITH MY TEMPER & HAVE NOT KILLED THAT MANY Fn HUMANS SINCE 70-71!! BTW, LOL!!
Some of us (and I’m not saying who)… got conned into paying a retailer to “install” a product such as this when we bought our phones. In truth, the greater value was not so much in the voodoo product or it’s imaginary “protection” so much as it was for the screen “insurance” that came with the retail priced product.
Here, we have the product priced for only $5 more than it’s actually worth, but without the screen insurance. That pretty much makes it valueless… I guess it’s perfect for Meh.
and void your warranty as well if any of this would happen to get inside and cause issues.
I’d rather spend $10 on a screen protector that I know would actually work or better yet buy an OtterBox or something similar that would actually prevent your phone from being shattered if dropped or stopped working if slightly wet.
The case I have once tumbled down 15 steel & concrete steps in the case I have now and it looked as if I dropped it into a bed of feathers.
$30-$50 investment in a rock solid case is better then having to fork over $1,000 for a new one or even the $200 deductible if you have insurance.
@ConcealedPsycho@Limewater My phone not shattering when it falls from three feet is far more important to me than any reasonable amount of extra size added onto it. I agree that phones should be more durable, but much like tipping, it’s a terrible situation that’s nearly impossible to reverse.
@ConcealedPsycho@PooltoyWolf I just mitigate this by buying the smallest, cheapest low-end phones I can. They always have removable batteries. Usually, when I drop them, the back cover just flies off and the battery pops out, absorbing most of the shock and protecting my screen.
I haven’t broken a phone yet, except for my very first one that apparently died from being left out in my car during a cold winter night in 2002.
@ConcealedPsycho@PooltoyWolf Yeah. I’m not a heavy modern smartphone user.
But yeah, shooting off the rear cover and battery absorbs some of the kinetic energy of the phone, lessening the force that the main body experiences during the rapid negative acceleration (impact).
With a phone without a removable back, all of the force has to be absorbed by the phone body and screen. The back cover is not a large mass component of a phone, but the battery usually is.
It’s not quite as simple as this, but separating out a large amount of the phones mass lessens the force the screen and body have to absorb.
It’ll be interesting to play with for $5. If it’s similar to ceramic coatings on cars, I can definitely see it being useful, even if it simply makes surfaces easier to clean due to super hydrophobic properties.
I’ll probably drop some on an old iPod Touch the kids use to test and proceed from there.
For the record, I’d be dumbfounded if anyone managed to void any warranties of anything. It’d be pretty damned impossible to prove you ever put this type of coating on anything, the layers are generally ridiculously thin.
Many of the one star reviews on Amazon seem to be from people whose phone still cracked when it was dropped. Do the claims of this product lead the average person up believe a thin coating of “nano liquid” will protect the screen from that kind of impact damage?
@djslack I have literally seen people put Vitamin C pills inside their computers to decrease the odds of them getting viruses.
Imagine a person of average intelligence. Done? Not quite inspiring, is it? Now remember that roughly half of all people are dumber than that.
Also, I’ve dropped my phone, I think, a single time ever, about ten inches on a carpeted surface (because I was sleeping). I’ve seen others drop their phones multiple times on hard surfaces within minutes. Like this one young woman I remember a few years ago dropping it something like three times on the street while talking to friends. She’d drop it, pick it up, get distracted with the ongoing conversation, relax her arm, and drop it again. Normal person, not sick or disabled or anything.
Pretty much everyone at work is carrying around iPhones with shattered screens. So I’d imagine that everyone is willing to try anything to fix their problems, and of course you know where the blame goes when it doesn’t work.
Not interested in using it on my phone (if I scratch it, how am I supposed to go get it off and replace it??), but I’m interested in other possible applications of something like this, like making cloth shoes water-repellent or something. Any other ideas??
I used to have some stuff like this to fill in scratches on my glasses. I don’t know what it was but if you were careful applying it worked great. The kit came with a remover formula that was ammonia so you could refresh the coating. I used it up and finally bought new glasses. Fortunately as you get older you don’t scratch glasses quite as much. I wonder if this is a urethane coating as ammonia will remove that. I have re-waterproofed old tents by soaking them in ammonia to remove the old sticky breaking down urethane and painting a new coating on.
If this is urethane then it’s cheaper to buy it in the guise of tent waterproofing.
People, we are talking about “9H HARDNESS” here! 9H! Now I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the Erection Hardness Scale (EHS, or as I call it: “The Rector Scale.” As in “Damn near killed her!” I digress).
The Rector Scale tops out at Grade IV! For you non-Romans…that’s Grade 4! AND THIS STUFF IS 9H! H AS IN HARD! AND 5 MORE THAN 4!
Think of the wonders at your (now chemically slathered) fingertips
@dam091 My order arrived before the weekend and I tested one of the packs. I wasn’t willing to risk my phone, especially since it already has a glass screen protector, but did have a badly scratched up display on my Omnifi car mp3 player that I was willing to sacrifice.
The instructions aren’t great, but you basically dump the liquid on the screen, then spend the next 10 to 20 minutes scooting the blob around trying to get it to coat the entire screen. After what felt like an hour of scooting and with only a little of the liquid adhering to the screen or evaporating, I ran out of patience and polished it up with the included wipe.
I didn’t take any before and after photos, as I wasn’t expecting any change, but the scratches do appear less pronounced. While no one would mistake the screen for brand new, it does seem more readable in the sunlight than before. This was an interesting experiment for $5, but I wouldn’t risk it on an actual phone / tablet when you can get a cheap glass screen protector for 99 cents shipped that would offer more protection than a nano coating.
For the record this is the stupidest f****** product I have ever bought in my life after cleaning off my screen I put the solution on it beaded up like water on your windshield when you have rain off on it and it was totally useless then when I tried to take it off it blurred my front view camera $5 bill in the f****** garbage it’s hard for me to believe that team meh didn’t test this out and know that it’s pure shiit
