I agree with everyone here about the bubbles and stickiness. But it seems like it does go away in 1-2 days --- the bubbles at least. The application is more challenging than most other protectors. Since I do not like the stickiness, I only buy the back protectors. I use a random one I purchased on eBay for the front screen, which works great. I just enjoy the stickiness for the back too I guess, makes it slightly less likely to slip from my hand.
