2 Pack Nintendo Switch Screen Protector $5.99 free shipping with Amazon Prime 

 

 

I was looking for a Screen Protector for my Switch, this one looks just as good as the ones that sell for a higher price.

Here is another one if you don't have prime. 5.99 free shipping.

Installation help:

I used regular house tape since I didn't have stickers, I got mine near perfect. I didn't purchase this brand, but it's mostly the same.

damn I wish I knew about these other manufacturers

 

i bought this one from amfilm, looks exactly the same but for $10.99

 

https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

was kinda peeved they come in a 2-pack when obviously not the majority will need 2 screen protectors. its just a ploy to upcharge the customer and sell 2x stock. 

 

easy to apply, just remember the cutouts on one edge is the bottom side of the switch display

I also bought the amfilm screen protectors.  I have no regrets.  Came in very sturdy packaging, easy to understand instructions, all of the wipes one would need, and I installed it within minutes.  No bubbles or other issues.  Looks and functions great.

 

amfilm is a known screen protector manufacturer with thousands of positive reviews across all of their products.  I have never heard of Reteck and they don't sell any other screen protectors that I see.  The one review that is there is likely fake.  The LK screen protector has no reviews, but their other tempered glass screen protectors have negative reviews.  I would rather spend the extra $5 to have piece of mind that I am getting a quality product from a known manufacturer.

Yep. Also, the two packs are in case you Fuck up putting the first one on, because you can't really take it off and start again with the same one. I mean, you can, but it won't work that well.

Too bad my $12 one already arrived. I have to wait for the Switch to be in stock again, though, since my launch system had defective wi-fi.

The one in OP also includes all that cleaning stuff, as shown in the last picture. As for one being more reputable, that's all well and good. There are some instances where I prefer to risk being a cheapass and offbrand screen protectors is it.

As for the reasoning of having two, in the case you mess up one, its not like you can't just purchase another single pack. Let the consumer decide. Application is already quite easy.

what was wrong with your wifi? Asking because mine is 2ft from router and signal only has 2 bars for me.

I tried it on two different routers and the speeds were incredibly slow standing a foot away. On a wireless N router, I got 2.6mbps on my Switch while my phone got 50mbps. On a wireless ac router, the Switch got 50mbps while my phone got 230mbps.

Idk if it helps but YZTree makes one with the edges slightly shortened so you don't start to snag the edges and start pull off the protector from the corners ... I was gonna get amfilm until I read how the slight shortness is better so you don't need to keep buying and reapplying

Interesting. Mines about two feet and is full strength. Not that this should matter, but is your router ac or n?

It's a router/modem built in I believe it's an N.

I picked up this one recently. It's $11 but 100% worth it. Solid construction and no bubbles after applying.

yeah I am actually super impressed with it and I loved the box it came in. I used the video posted here to install with a little scotch tape.

cool. down to 6.99 now. I'm sure we'll see it go down some more. I don't take out my switch much just yet so i'm fine with waiting a little more.

 

I think i rather invest in those dock socks i've been seeing.

Nintendo really needs to address this, as it's clearly a flaw in the design. I put a screen protector on mine, but the back of my switch already has noticeable scratches on it despite using the utmost care and the fact that I've only docked/undocked it a few times since buying it.

It sucks.. but my guess is that they will play it off because they are Nintendo. I actually have tried not to dock it so much since more reports have come out. i'll have to check the back side.

Any tape should work.

took 2 days with prime. I am not sure why the date would be that far away.

You can carefully use a pin on an angle to poke a small hole in the bubbles. Go from the side not straight on.
