So this tape is probably the above mentioned dust-absorber.
In some videos you can clearly hear that a "cellotape" or "cello tape" or "Sellotape" is used.
Sellotape is a brand name, and cellotape is a generic name of a cellophane tape (a cellulose-based transparent adhesive tape). So, I guess, any such tape you might use when wrapping your Christmas gifts, etc.

There are more videos although not Note-specific. This video even has comments from a professional protector installer. How to remove dust particles after installing the protector:

This one shows a shower:

A good idea to fix at the side:

In two places for a large screen, so this is our case:

Removing dust particles and bubles afterwards (somewhat similar to the 1st one):

The last three videos seem to show a special dust absorbing tape instead of a generic cellotape.

There are many more videos on Youtube, not sure if I got the best ones.
Hello Parkher,

Thank for all this links

On other videos they actually use Scotch tape. Some use hinge method, some gradual peel off method, some - combined method, with the hinge and then gradual peel off. Some make one hinge of the length of the entire screen. Some put the device on a damp cloth to reduce a chance of dust rising up near it. Some use wide tape and cover with it the whole screen in an overlapping fashion. Then, when it is removed, no dust particles are remaining. I just don't want to flood this forum with youtube links. But you can get many ideas there.

Question Mark,
So I used a lens cleaner with a microfiber cloth. So far, nothing bad happened. I don't know if various such sprays have very different formulas, the one I used is Hilco Leader Lens Cleaner in a big 236 ml (8 oz) bottle, so I have a lot of it left for further cleaning
It says on the bottle: Alcohol-FREE AR formula, effectively cleans all lens types without streaking.
Amazon says: Providing effective, streak free cleaning, Hilco's Leader lens cleaner is alcohol free and Colts approved for use on all eyewear lens coatings.
Whatever "Colts approved" is.

After cleaning the screen, I don't see any scratches yet. Perhaps not too late to put the protector on. But do I need it, if I will not be using the stylus anymore. I will not be using any swipes or dragging with fingers either, just in case. Just gentle taps. Except when selecting a multi-word phrase for a dictionary lookup.

The built-in file manager (Storage) allows to get to any place in long lists without any dragging, just by tapping page up / page down virtual buttons or tapping any point on the slider.
It is worse with Cool Reader - its built-in manager does not support that. I am thinking about modifying CR if I can manage to build it from sources. In that case I would put the page up / page down actions on the "back" button of Note. I already did that with next page/previous page buttons: next page/previous page/exit: single press/double press/long press.

Good to know.

I would still apply the screen protector since you already have it.

Why limit yourself by not applying it and being fearful of using the stylus or using swipe gestures? Having more options is usually preferable to having less.

What have you got to lose except a little bit of time? If it doesn't work out on your initial attempt, then you can reconsider whether or not you want to purchase another screen protector and try again.

BTW, thanks for posting the links to the YouTube videos. Wish I had had the good sense to search for some before applying my screen protector.

Actually, they sent me 3 screen protectors, although I ordered just 1. My issue is this: will it degrade contrast? Will the text look somehow worse with it.

In those videos, after the protector is already applied, you can lift its corner and remove dust particles and get rid of bubbles. The question is: can you still do it after a considerable time passes.

I didn't really notice any significant degradation in contrast after applying mine. However, your eyes might be more discerning than mine. But, if you did notice a significant difference, you could always remove the screen protector and go back to using your Note without one. They are not permanent fixtures.

You can certainly lift up and/or remove the screen protector after a considerable period of time has passed. They are not permanent fixtures.

However, I don't know if one which was removed after a considerable period of time would stick back down as nicely.

But, if you were able to install it dust free as in the videos, why would you be interested in lifting up a corner of it after using it for a considerable length of time unless it had become scratched and you wanted to replace it?

Question Mark,

I was thinking about you. If you have some dust particles with bubbles, could you still try to remove them? Not the whole protector, only those particles. Not seconds but rather weeks or months after attaching the protector.
