The first reason of up to date computer screen savers is amusement and occasionally even, protection. Nonetheless, they have been to begin with intended to avert phosphor burn-in on plasma computer system monitors in addition as CRT units. Screen savers helped to avoid these damaging consequences by automatically altering the photographs when the laptop wasn't getting used.

Allow me to inform you of the brain maximizing method I had stumbled upon following loading an exceedingly large amount of pictures into My Pictures file, which was instantly hooked, maybe like your computer system established up, to my monitor saver method. After sitting and viewing it in the future, I mentioned how it spurred on my brain and improved my spatial reasoning previous to building periods. It genuinely assisted and that i was shocked.

Ben Sin The Otao tempered glass screen protector is the best one I've tried. This is a bit embarrassing to admit, but I've probably spent more than a hundred US dollars on tempered glass screen protectors over the past two years on five devices: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S8, Huawei P9 Plus and OnePlus 3. Dropping a benjamin on screen protectors for five phones may not seem that much to Americans and Europeans, who have to pay jacked up prices of $15-20 bucks for things like tempered glass protectors and cases, but in China -- where all these things are made -- you can buy them for like five bucks a pop.

So how did I rack up that high a bill if I can buy protectors for that cheap? It's because I keep whipping them off after a few weeks or days and buying a new one. In all, I've purchased probably 25 to 30 protectors for those five phones -- it was nearly impossible to find one that didn't suck. This wasn't always the case: screen protectors used to all fit pretty well, regardless of brand. But when smartphones began curving its screens, that's when tempered glass screen protectors began suffering in quality.

There's a pretty detailed explanation as to why a curved screen is much harder to make a glass protector for, but the TL;DR version is that tempered glass screen protectors manufacturers used to be able to place adhesive over the entire glass protector the coverage area was completely flat, but once the displays began curving, manufacturers could only place adhesive on the edges of the protector.

Having adhesive only on the edges usually lead to several problems: the first and most important is a loss of touch sensitivity on the middle area of the screen because the protector is only really taped down on the edges. The second problem is that the adhesive on the edges tend to trap dirt/dust/muck and create a very unsightly ring of crap around the screen, as can be seen below on my old Galaxy S8 protector.

Ben Sih Look at all that muck. Yuck. Because I have a near OCD obsession with keeping my smartphones in pristine condition both functionally and aesthetically, the muck and loss of sensitive, even if minor, would often lead me to rip off the protector and try another brand. That's how I ended up dropping that much dough on a sheet of cheap glass, all in the name of protecting the displays of my phones.

With the Galaxy S8, I went through several forms of protectors, from tempered glass by AmazingThings to Samsung's own plastic film protector, but ultimately none satisfied me -- until I came across the brand Otao.  This protector differs from the others in several ways: one, the coverage area is actually smaller than usual, in that it just barely, barely covers the curved edges. This makes the tempered glass protector more compatible with smartphone cases, which has a tendency to clash with curved screen protectors, but also reduces the loss of sensitivity because the adhesive is closer to sticking flat to the display instead of a curved angle.

In fact, the Otao protector for my S8 did not result in loss of sensitivity at all, I could type as I normally would. The best part, however (for an OCD dude like me anyway), is that the protector doesn't really trap dirt around the edges the way other ones do. I've had the protector on for a few weeks, and so far it looks mostly okay. There's slight dust trapped, but a heck of a lot better than the photo above of my older protector.

Ben Sin The Otao protector. You can kind of tell Otao puts more effort into producing the protectors than other brands by just the packaging. The Otao pack comes with a wet wipe and dry wipe for removing oil and dust, a microfiber cloth, and even an installation tray. The tray essentially helps guide your protector so it fits perfectly on every try. As someone who's struggled in the past to put on protectors to fit every side evenly, the tray removed a lot of stress.

Ben Sin The installation tray. Simply put it over the phone, then drop the protector on top. Since the Otao case barely goes over the edges of the phone, it should work with almost any case. I've made a video of the installation process below along with a typing test with the protector. I just hope Otao makes protectors for other devices because they've won me over with their S8 protector.
