Need to tell the seller you want to top up RMB10, if not you need to furnish IMEI number (I think it's because they are getting it from Samsung China)

Btw any pics of how it looks inside? I don't dare open up

1st time I know about this HardWear brand, I try this cos it claim to have Military-Grade Scratch Protection & Surface Hardness Over 6H. Most important is the finger print detection works perfectly. After google then can find out more about their products..... I don't take the risk for buying cheap sp cos screen repair cost much more than $30

Am using different brand which can cover the whole front camera. Finger print unlocking works flawlessly....Plus, is really anti finger print smudges.

Yours is what brand? Matte type is better than glossy type for smudges

Anyone noticed the screen is a bit grainy at 120hz and low brightness? I noticed some horizontal bands as well at night (near where the arrows are)



Checked online and it seems many Note 20 ultra also have this issue so I guess same for s21? :(

Even more strangely, when I minimise the keyboard, the grey band disappears!

Also, if I switch to 60hz, all gone haha

Makes me think like are they using compression when in 120hz mode

Hello All,

Is this expected?
I just got my S21 from Samsung online store. The screen looks like it already has a screen protector pasted one. Is it?

May update not out.. Can’t wait to see if the delayed notifications are being fixed even though none mentioned on changelog.

Apart from that, those who purchased the replacement screen protector from Samsung, how‘s the quality? Same as original?

Yup it's the exact same quality, except that it is manually pasted as compared to machine pasted for the original.

Did u put it in the pocket or bag with some other objects?
Its honestly the best out there with the best sensitivity and anti-fingerprint properties albeit it could be prone to scratches.

In a bag while cycling with no hard objects. So don’t know how the screen protector suffer deep scratch maybe rub against the zipper.
