Do you use screen protectors for your handheld consoles?

   0

Screen protectors! Something that always runs through my mind when I buy a new handheld. During every honeymoon cycle of buying a new handheld, I believed that I wanted my new toy to be always in mint condition. I always ended up buying some.

But every time (and I swear every time!) I bought one for my handheld, I always go to a few stages before giving up on it.

Stage 1: Optimistic

"Yeah, this is going to be perfect!" I said as I slowly apply the screen protector on my screen.

"Oh no! Air bubbles!"


Stage 2: Fumble like a madman!

I say to myself, "IT HAS TO BE PERFECT!" as I slowly tear off the screen!

"Whoops!"

"Ahh dust! Must clean it with a cloth..."

(Cloth manages to put more dust on the screen)


I start to hyperventilate.

Stage 3: Applied

"Cool", I say to myself. But why does it look a bit off? I really don't like having a fake screen on my screen. I can see the edges. It's really bothering me...

Stage 4: Fumble to remove it!

"AHH THIS IS TACKY! It looks so unnatural"

Minutes later.


Legit story. A Pi trophy fell on it. While trying to get a screen protector off. Somehow.

Stage 5:


I always change my mind about screen protectors. I mean I spend a good amount of time when trying to apply a screen protector to a handheld. But in the end, I ask myself, "What's the point? There's gonna be a time where I don't touch this handheld for a month."

But, I'm really curious. Do you use screen protectors?
