    Making your Display Fingerprint-Free and Smudge-Proof for G Tab

    So if you are like me, the most annoying thing about the G Tab has nothing to do with its functionality, but has everything to do with its display, specifically the darn fingerprints and smudges! There is now a fix for this, tested by many people including myself, and works an absolute treat at curing at least 90% of the issue.

    The following has even been endorsed by several ViewSonic reps as being the way to go, not only does it prevent almost all fingerprints and smudges but it also gives your display a super silky sexy feel to it.

    How to do it? Rain-X! Follow these directions to a super smooth, clean screen that will last at least a month between applications.

    1. Clean your screen using a GOOD microfiber cloth and a little bit of water.
    2. Repeat step one at least once! You really really want to have your screen as clean and "out-of-the-box" perfect as you possibly can get it. Check it at multiple angles and light to make sure you have no haze, no smudges, no spots.
    3. Apply Rain-X to wet the corner of a clean cotton rag
    4. Using a gentle swirling motion, apply the rain-x to the screen. It will bead up at first, but continue to swirl it on for about 20-30 seconds until it starts drying to a uniform hazy coating
    5. Wet your microfiber cloth again, getting it damp but not dripping and buff off most of the hazy coat
    6. When you have most of the haze removed, switch to the dry end of the microfiber and buff off the rest.
    7. Go back to the bright lights and multiple viewing angles to check for missed areas.

    Good luck and share your results!

    Ok, thanks I done both of mine. How often do you have to do this? It looks good, I even did it on my Droid 1 since it has Gorilla glass in it it should be good.

    Rain X is an exterior windshield coating to help rain/water run off better with out streaks or spots. This is actually a great idea I'm going to try it on my Droid X.

    the closest SA product is called C-Thru, which I think is almost identical. I know Rain-X is available in Europe from a Swiss Company, and in the UK from Moss (did a quick Google on that part)
