    Honestly, I don't know what they did to fix it. It's been several days and no rainbow.

    I think they are still selling the one that didn't work for me. The new one is $11.99 as of this post. Get that one.

    So is the adhesive coating on the entire glass or just the outter edges?

    It sticks really well for it to be only the edges though.

    I don't have a problem with how well it sticks. It's the air gap between the phone surface and glass protector.

    What is the problem with the air gap?

    Go to a store with a demo S8 and compare to your phone with the screen protector on. The air gap reduces the visual quality of the AMOLED display.

    I just grabbed my S8+ to see. I'll post this info just as an alternate opinion for people that read this.

    The protector is resting on the screen. In order to have an air gap, it would have to be held suspended by the glued edges. This protector is thin glass. I don't think it could withstand continuous flex at the edges everytime you press your finger on various points on the screen. During the install, you also press the center of the screen before pressing the edges down.

    I guess I am more than satisfied with this display with this protector on. I still think the screen is beautiful, vibrant, bright, and sharp. If there is any degradation, it must be minor (with his new new version - the old version did have a problem).

    When I used a film protector, there was definitely some degradation of the S8+ screen. I have been using glass for all of my phones for several years and was frustrated by the lack of one that works.

    There is at least one person here that does see a difference so I guess people should consider that.

    Have always used TGSPs. They give me peace of mind. To each his own. For me, the reasonable price and good results is worth every penny for the Otao. Over a month now with 2 drops and no regrets. No sensitivity issues no clicking noises and no screen degradation for me. I have an area of about 1 centimeter rainbow that I can't see at all when screen is on. So inexpensive , too. I gave up on my s7 edge but this one trumps anything I tried for my S8.

    Put you S8 under water, and you'll see. Don't worry, S8 is water proof.

    No need for me to do that. There's no air gap. The protector isn't even lifting.

    Quoting myself.

    This is, by far and hands down, the best and most easily installed screen protector I have ever used on any device since the beginning of time itself.
    I highly recommend it.

    My older Otao is still good but I figured I needed a spare so I ordered the newer one with the link you provided. Thanks for the info. Nice review in Amazon BTW.

    I happened to be at Best Buy this evening and I couldn't help but go over to the Galaxy S8 display... well... displays. I looked at their phone and my phone with the protector on. Frankly, it's hard to do a comparison because all their phones are running the demos. I turned up my brightness like those demos do and I just can't see a difference.

    I even went over to the unlocked ones just to make sure it wasn't some carrier trick.

    (that was a joke)

    (a bad one)
