    I was at the store today and asked the guy to do it since I know it can be hard, he said it is easy!
    And then he failed.. the top screen he did perfect.. but the bottom screen.. he couldn't too many bubbles.

    He gave me a new package, and then I tried again at a phone store. The dude said terrible quality, very thin and it's very rigid. I should spend more on these foils he said.

    So then I tried at home for couple hours and it only became worse (re-applying it again and again, using duct tape to remove dust from it) But it doesn't seem to matter.. keep getting them bubbles.

    Also the first time the store guy did it, it locked up my new3ds, and I couldn't use keys or touch...
    With the 2nd guy this also happened...

    When I tried myself somehow it didn't happen. but got many bubbles so yeah..

    The one's I have were called Big ben new3ds XL, 6 euro

    Any screen protector will have bubbles if you aplly it wrong.
    I bought a cheap $2 set on ebay for me XL, and I have 0 bubles in it.
    I took like 5 minutes on each one making sure there was NO dust on the screen with a microfiber clock

    I reccomend having a microfiber cloth, and some alchohol or screen cleaner.
    Use the microfiber cloth to pick up all the dust, and before you apply the protector triple check for dust.
