Sometimes, the culprit behind your phone’s rough texture isn’t as deep-set as you may assume. Several instances can leave your phone glass sticky, rough and uneven. Here are some tips on how to make the phone glass smooth again.

Clean It

Cleaning your phone can make it smoother. How long has it been since you last thoroughly cleaned your phone glass? Probably too long. Here are reliable tips on how to clean your phone screen.

  1. Remove the phone case, wired earphones, charger, or other wiring on the phone
  2. Prepare warm soapy water or find disinfectant wipes with 70% alcohol
  3. Avoid submerging your phone in any fluids. If water gets into the charging compartments or ports, your phone will get damage
  4. If using soapy water, dip a microfiber/soft/linen cloth into the water, hold the sides of your phone and slowly wipe the surface of your phone screen
  5. Repeat the process at least twice, cleaning off smudges on the phone surface

Apply Tempered Glass

The damage on your phone screen is often too extensive, and nothing can be done to clear the scratch marks completely. There is no need to throw away your phone if it’s still in optimum condition. Your next best option to make phone glass smooth again is to apply tempered glass.

Tempered glass is a thin glass covering that sticks to your phone screen to protect it. Should your phone fall, experience friction, or get dirty, the tempered glass takes all the damage instead of the actual phone screen.

Tempered glass protectors are strong, durable, and feel super smooth to the touch. They come in a variety of colors and styles. Some even have anti-glare and privacy features.

The best thing about getting a tempered glass protector for your phone screen is that it does not alter image quality, display colors, sharpness, or the overall usability of your phone.
