If you really love your HTC Thunderbolt, then you're most likely going to be getting a screen protector. If you want to keep your phone looking as new as it was when you first had it, a screen protector then keep your Thunderbolt looking the best possible. Here’s how to install one.

One of the best HTC Thunderbolt accessories is an HTC Thunderbolt screen protector. An ultra-thin film that is put over the screen of your Thunderbolt, a screen protector will repel dust and dirt and guard your screen against scratches. The screen protector could also protect it from any potential any other mishaps, like accidentally dropping it and such. Holding the phone together, the screen protector will prevent your Thunderbolt from shattering into a bunch of pieces. Because of this, a screen protector is almost as important an accessory for your device as a HTC Thunderbolt charger.

Now, if you're interested in purchasing a screen protector, know that there are several kinds to choose from: glare resistance, mirrors, privacy enhancing, or just the regular kinds. The cheapest of the protectors, the clear screen protector, is simply a thin, clear film, usually sold in a package of three. The privacy screen protector will prevent your screen from being viewed from anywhere except directly in front of the device. Although it will not reduce your visibility at all, it can keep your work private from the prying eyes of your friends and rivals. The mirrored protector gives the device a sleek look and allows the screen to act as a mirror when the screen is turned off, and the anti-glare protector allows you to use your Thunderbolt outside by reducing the glare on the screen. And while these are different kinds of screen protectors, they are pretty much installed the same way.

Before installing a screen protector on your device, first read any instructions that may come with the protector. Move the device to a room that is free of dust and dirt, so you can perform the installation. Wipe down the screen using a dry towel or napkin to ensure that it is completely free of foreign materials. Just make sure nothing gets between the screen protector and your phone because it'll end up having that piece of dirt forever.

Make sure the device is turned the right way so that the orientation of the protector matches up with the orientation of the device. Then, remove the actual screen protector and slowly peel it away. Then, place it on your Thunderbolt screen. Then slowly remove all the tabs attached to the screen protector. After all that press down and apply the adhesive so it'll hold the phone and keep it protected. Very carefully remove the sheath while also continuing to apply the protector over the rest of the screen.

Just make sure you clean all the dust off of the device because you decide to put the screen protector on. Grab the remaining tab and carefully peel the sheath down without touching the sheath itself.
