Is it okay to press the screen hard when using WPC?

Hi, I'm using Waterproof case all the time with touch backdoor from telesin. I found out that it is hard to press the screen with it that's why i put extra effort on touching and pressing it. My worry is that I may not notice that I'm putting extra force that may result to damage my LCD Screen. We all know that touch backdoor is very tight and it seems like if you don't press enough, it will not actually press the screen.
Thanks!

Hi @agilesand55420

 

I am not sure if this will have any direct impact to the camera itself.

As with everything, press it with the right amount of force.

 

 

Thanks!

Thank you for your kind response Ej! One more thing, is the LCD Screen of hero 7 have some sort of material like gorilla glass or something?
