The tablet computer makes our lives easier and has become a faithful companion – whether used instead of a PC in the office, as a digital notebook in lectures or as an e-book reader on the couch. Given that the tablet is used intensively, it frequently gets bumped on the edges of tables, scratched by keys in a bag and even dropped on the floor. Nonetheless, you often ask yourself: ‘Is a display protector for the tablet really worthwhile?’ – Yes, it definitely is! The repair costs for a tablet display are often almost as expensive as the purchase price.


For tablet display repairs, you often have to dig deep into your pocket: The average cost for a display repair is approximately EUR 300. But it doesn’t have to get that far – a glass display protector can be bought for as little as EUR 19.99.

As you can see in the cost overview*, with a display protector from Hama, you save yourself over EUR 300 – money you’d rather put to good use elsewhere.

    Glass display protector

    Due to its material, glass is more resistant and therefore more durable. Replacement is only necessary if the glass display protector breaks.

    Film display protector

    The film wears more quickly due to its soft material. It therefore needs to be changed more frequently.

  • Preparation
    1. Choose a room that is as free of dust as possible.
    2. Use a clean, flat surface with no cloth covering as a work surface.
    3. Place the film or glass on your display and determine the correct direction for subsequent mounting. Ensure that openings for speakers, microphones, cameras, etc. are kept free.
    4. Carefully clean the display using a microfibre cloth.
  • Fitting

    1. Remove the backing film from the adhesive side of the display protector up to halfway.

    2. Place the display protector on the edge of the display and check again that it is positioned correctly.

    3. Use a microfibre cloth to gently and uniformly smooth the film display protector on the display. Lay the glass display protector slowly onto the display. Remove the backing film evenly.

    4. Remove the second sheet of backing film.

    5. Smooth out any remaining air bubbles from the middle outwards using a microfibre cloth.
