    Rainbow effect means the glass isn't properly adhering to the screen, either because the adhesive layer is inadequate, it's been placed wrong and it doesn't fit right, or there are gaps between the screen and the protector (usually a thing when curves are involved). You can try to gently (but firmly) push down on the glass where you have the rainbow effect and see if it 'sticks' to the screen better so as to make them disappear but most of the time you have to remove and re-apply (unless that specific brand/model always has this issue due to not being a perfect fit or having curves too pronounced or crappy adhesive).

    Yeah, curved tempered glass protectors are usually crappy in that department (you can read reviews on each and every one of them).

    How does Curved phone owner put protection on their phone anyway?

    My main reason is to protect the screen in case of drop and scratch

    Thin film protectors, hard cases, or live with rainbow effects on their tempered glass protectors. Even the 'good' brands always have those in their reviews.

    Or a Whitestone Dome protector if there's one made for your phone, and you're willing to spend that much.

    (I normally use an Otterbox Defender case. Aside from all the other features, I can drop the phone 3 feet onto a solid surface [I have - accidentally - a few times, once even had it thrown at a wall screen-first] and the screen is protected.)
