The first objective of contemporary computer system monitor savers is entertainment and from time to time even, security. Nonetheless, they were being originally meant to avert phosphor burn-in on plasma laptop screens at the same time as CRT equipment. Display screen savers served to circumvent these unfavorable results by immediately altering the photographs in the event the pc wasn't getting used.



Let me inform you of the mind boosting system I had stumbled on just after loading an exceedingly huge variety of images into My Pictures file, which was quickly hooked, probably like your computer established up, to my display screen saver system. Following sitting down and observing it someday, I mentioned the way it spurred on my mind and elevated my spatial reasoning just before coming up with periods. It truly assisted and that i was astonished.

Once upon a time, back when the front of smartphones were all generic flat slabs of glass, buying a tempered glass screen protector was a piece of cake -- almost any brand would work, and worked well. The tempered glass screen protector I got for my girlfriend's iPhone 6 three years ago still works and looks flawless to this day.

 But then phone displays began making things difficult by, well, stop being so straightforward. They began curving and turning and twisting in ways that gadget screens never did before -- and tempered glass screen protector makers have had headaches ever since. Like most smartphone trends these days, the curved screen movement was spearheaded by the two South Korean tech giants in 2015, when LG and Samsung released flagships with screens that seemingly bent the laws of physics.

LG's G4 had a subtle inward curve (like a banana) while Samsung's S6 Edge had dramatic curves on both the right and left sides of the screen. The curved nature of both device's screens made the jobs of tempered glass protector companies much more difficult. No longer could they churn out a generic sheet of flat glass that can be slapped onto any phone as long as they cut the dimensions correctly. Companies had to manufacture glass that also curved along with the device's screen.

And because of the sensitive nature of a curved tempered glass screen, the tempered glass protector can no longer have adhesive on the entire side of the glass (that's how flat screen tempered glass protectors were made). Instead, curved screen tempered glass protectors can only have adhesive on the edges, leaving the middle, for the lack of a better term, not sticky. In the early days of curved phones, these "only the edges are sticky" tempered glass protectors were all terrible.

The middle of the screen protector (because it has no adhesive) would not quite touch the screen, resulting in major touch sensitivity issues. It was such a major problem for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (released in 2015) that one Google search for "tempered glass Galaxy" shows dozens and dozens of thread on forums ranging from Reddit to XDA warning users not to waste money on them. Eventually, tempered glass companies figured out a way to fix the touch sensitivity issues, and that's by using the "Dot Matrix" technology that was first developed for car windscreens.

Basically, the little dots help the screen protector touch the display to a point (but not stick down all the way which would lead to easy cracking). Ben Sin Notice the dots on my tempered glass protector. But using the dot matrix pattern results in another problem: the "rainbow effect" (the scientific term is Newton rings). This is the reflection of light between two sheets of glass (the phone's display and the tempered glass screen protector that isn't glued 100% onto the display), and it can be quite distracting.

The good news is the Newton rings are mostly noticeable when the display is off (as seen in my photo above), it'll mostly go away once the screen is turned on. A final problem with tempered glass screen protectors that only have adhesive on the edges is that they have a tendency to trap muck/dust/dirt.

This was never a problem before on flat screen tempered glass protectors. The curved ones had to double down on the adhesive, as they rely exclusively on the edges to keep everything in place. Ben Sih Look at all that muck. Yuck. I'll admit, the collection of dust and muck around the edges of the S8 drives me crazy -- but I'm a bit of a gadget snob who likes everything pure and clean (I don't even use a case on my phones).

I find that wiping down edges with some alcohol wipes will help matters, but it'll never look fully clean like ... a plastic film screen protector. Ben Sin No dust at all here. I have two Galaxy S8s, and I've been using a tempered glass screen protector on one and a plastic film protector on the other (the official Samsung version). All the flaws of the tempered glass protector (Newton rings, trapped dust, dot matrix) do not apply to the plastic film protector, which fits seamlessly.

I've had the plastic film protector on since day one of purchase (it's been over two months now) and the fit is still mostly flawless, save for one little spot of air bubble (but that's totally my fault... I've explained in the video below). So if you're someone who can't stand the dots or the dirt, a plastic film protector might be the way to go, but the tempered glass offers a bit more protection, because ultimately -- it's an extra piece of hardened glass on top, whereas the plastic film is just a flimsy piece of plastic.

I feel that if I were to drop a small rock on both phone's screens, the device with the tempered glass protector would suffer less damage. The tempered glass protector I got for my S8 is by AmazingThing, and other than the three flaws, it works very well. I can report there are no touch sensitivity issues whatsoever -- I can type on it just as fast as I can on an uncovered display -- and the texture of the glass feels better than the plastic film.

So whether you're buying the Galaxy S8, or the upcoming iPhone 8, you'll have to make a decision: do you want to go glass and get more protection but with minor annoyances, or plastic and get a much cleaner look? More on Forbes: The Three Things I Use To Avoid Putting A Case On My Galaxy S8
