I've noticed on my S10+ that along the sides of the display, the oleophobic coating isn't coated along the edges leaving these waves of duller black.
Anyone else?
I remember posts about these on S9 or S8 so it's not exactly new issue on Samsung's, but just wondering how common it is..

On my previous Sony phone, i sent the screen for replacement because the oleophobic coating was completely inhomogeneous from edge to center and i could see darker/lighter bands and spots.
The replacement screen was not perfect but usable (embarassing screen factory production chain...).
As soon as in remove the film i ll give a look.

Interesting. I never had a phone not losing its coating . There is one point in time, usually when a year old, when the screen looks all scratched and banged up, but sooner or later it all evens out. Kinda used to it.

Ive never had a Samsung loose its coating. Including my S5. Only ever had an issue with a cheap Polaroid tablet and very slightly on my lg gpad 7.
