    Default Is the viewing angle on this phone not very good?

    I'm noticing that if I tilt my phone off-angle by not even that much, the screen takes on a bluish tint. Even when the screen is off, when light is shining on it, it looks blue-green. I'm not sure if this is just how the screen is or if it's my screen protector (Steinheil Oleophobic). Are others noticing this blue tint when the phone is off-angle?

    That's odd. Samsung screens are usually known for their insane viewing angles, and I don't recall seeing anything about this in any of the reviews. Could be related to the screen protector. Some tend to catch the light from the screen and cause issues like this.

    So that's no, the viewing angle is not good? Or no, there isn't a blue tint?

    I never heard before tonight anyone seeing a blue tint or seen it myself, so it could be the screen protector.


    My phone is a good One!

    The S3 had it, but it was due to the curve on the outside edge of the screen.

    I noticed this when I had the S3 and to some extent on the S4 when I handled it in the store.

    I would see this as a plus; a built-in privacy filter.

    I don't have the phone yet but I've seen a couple reviews saying the viewing angles were really good.

    Well when I remove my screen protector in a couple of days (since I did such a terrible job on the instillation, I purchased more) I will find out if it's the protector or the screen itself. If it's the screen protector, I will go back to Ultra Crystal. That never gave me this issue on my old Evo 4G.
