    I wear plastic safety lenses probably coated for UV protection. When i use these glasses with my note 4 a lot of the icons and better graphics look 3D any ideas?

    Welcome to AC.

    That is very interesting. Can you tell us more about the glasses so that we can research the specs and try to understand it?

    Edit: A friend has suggested that they may be polarised.

    I have noticed this since 720p displays on phones. Currently I use a Note 4 also. On any small high definition display, high resolution graphics appear slightly 3d. Different colors appear at slightly higher or lower elevations. It's actually kinda cool. This effect only happens when I wear my glasses. These are not polarized glasses. I'm thinking it must have something to do with the curvature of lenses, and how they are bending light from the pixels. I have bad vision, and my lenses have a pretty strong curve. If I hold my glasses a few inches from my eyes and look at the screen, the effect is greater. We need an engineer or physicist to explain this lol. I'm very curious what causes this!

    I get the same 3D effect when I wear my eyeglasses, which have UV protection. I've noticed it on the Galaxy S4 and my current Note 5.
