We’ve never had a more popular screen protector for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ than the Whitestone Dome. This tempered glass screen protector comes with a unique installation process that guarantees a perfect fit every time, saving you time and hassle. Once installed, you’re left with a super strong screen protector that will keep your Galaxy S9’s display in perfect condition for months and years to come. Let’s take a closer look and find out more!
The Dome Glass screen protector is different than other screen protectors — and that starts right from when you take it out of the box. Where most screen protectors ask you to simply feel off a sticky backing and place them approximately in the right position, the Whitestone is demonstrably more scientific.
You start off by taking everything out of the box, then place your phone on a flat surface. Use an alcohol wipe to clean off the front of your S9’s display, dry it with a microfibre cloth and then use dust removal stickers to get any small bits of dust or lint. This ensures that your screen is completely clean for installation — there’s nothing worse than finding a bit of dust on the wrong side of your screen protector!
Then it’s time to put your S9 into the installation tray and cover it with the top layer. Insert the plastic pin at the top, then the bridge above the phone. Place the bottle facing down above the screen with the bottom, then allow the liquid to escape over 40 seconds. Remove the bridge, then place the glass onto the pin you placed earlier. This puts the screen protector in position without it actually touching the adhesive yet.
Press down on the bottom end and remove the pin, and the adhesive will flow from the centre to eventually cover the whole surface. Once that’s complete, use the provided UV lamp to bond the screen protector to the S9’s screen in several places — and job’s a good ‘un!
It’s certainly an in-depth process, but it only takes a few minutes and you only have to do it one time. And you’re left with a beautifully applied screen protector every time, even if your hands aren’t steady.
Once installed, the Dome provides complete protection against drops, knocks and scratches. The screen protector stretches from curved edge to curved edge, ensuring there aren’t any gaps for the screen to take damage as you might find with completely flat screen protectors that don’t go all the way. This ensures long-lasting protection, keeping your Galaxy S9 safe month after month.
Of course, screen protection alone doesn’t count for much if you’re sacrificing touch sensitivity or optical clarity. Thankfully, the Whitestone Dome is a champion in this regard; you lose absolutely nothing in touch sensitivity and optical clarity remains tip-top as well. In fact, Whitestone even go further, providing a rare feature: blue light reduction of 25%. Research suggests that reducing your exposure to blue light can make it easier to go to sleep at night, helping to limit the effects of smartphone usage — particularly in the evening.
The Whitestone Dome is compatible with all official Galaxy S9 cases on the market, with the exception of the Alcantara covers. Other third-party Galaxy S9 cases that don’t cover the screen should also work just fine. You can check the size of your case to see if it’s compatible, or view the graphic below
Perfect for broken screens
You can also use the Dome to prevent further damage to broken screens, ensuring that your Galaxy S9 remains usable even after it’s taken an unprotected knock. It’s very easy to do permanent damage to your phone — including its touch sensitivity and other features — if you keep using it without a case, so plaster on the Dome and stop things before they get much worse.
