DIY: How to Install Phone Screen Protector For Clear Selfies

Selecting the Right Screen Protector

Try to avoid screen protectors with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera lens.

My original screen protector had a punch-hole cutout. The problem with that was:

  • It’s hard to align and install the screen protector properly.
  • The hole collected dust and was hard to clean properly.

Both of these resulted in a blurry selfie picture and self video. If you use your phone to make YouTube videos, this will be a huge problem.

Solution: Choose a Better Designed Screen Protector

I went online and bought a screen protector specifically with a large unenclosed cutout for the selfie camera:

Do note that you will get air bubbles when you install the screen protector during the first time. It will naturally evaporate away after a few days.
