Dirty screen every time

Anyone having the same problem where the S10e screen (without screen protector) gets greasy/dirty very quickly from your fingers?

I don't have greasy skin and yet the screen gets smudged like someone spilled water on it almost instantly. 

 

I used iPhone with out screen protectors. And it never got this dirty this quickly like my s10e does.

that is probably due to the oleophobic coating which evenutally worn out with usage, unfrotunately every oleophobic coating does that with time, you may want to fix that problem by installing a screen protector of good quality whose coating will solve the "issue" however when it will wear out you will need to replace it again.

As a good aftermaket glass screen protector i would advise you to buy the whitestone domeglass, but the perfect installation possibility and the good oleophobic coating are worth it.

Otherwise i have heard about kits to apply new olerophobic coating on the phone, however i do not know if they really work and how much they work and they come in at a quite high price so for me they are not worth over a glass screen protector

I hate screen protectors. They always muddy up the clarity and dull the screen true colours. Regardless of their quality. 

Plus this screen is bad already when it comes to showing colours.

White colours are yellowish (I tried everything to fix it.).

Can imagine that screen protector will only make it worse.

white colours may have become yellowish due t the wear out of the panel, this is also partially one of the reasons of so called burn in since they share the same origin.

The blue pixels wear out faster than the red and green and when that happens the screen acquires a jellowish tint and there is also some colour distortion which if is very marked in some places can lead to burn in of the static things which were in that.

Type in the phone dialer *#0*# and do the test white, red, green and blue if you spot some solid couloured areas mean that you ahve burn in and you can go to a samsung costumer service explain the issue and they should fix it under warranty by replacing the screen, doing so you should be able to kill to birds with one stone😉

Be sure they will not charge you before confirming the replacement!

Thanks for a very detailed answer mate :winking-face:

 

I will try the test right now.

 

However,  they yellowish tint on white colours is something that happened out of the box.

I had 2 s10e so far. Both have yellow tint on white colours.

 

Many people complain about this on s10e. (Some even on s10). As if the blue light filter is still on, regardless if you turned it off.

But I will do the test :smiling-face:

I cant see white test.

Only red, green and blue. (I tried them. No issues. The screen was filled with each colour with each pixel)

 

No white test though 😞

Hello, yes my s10 gets very greasy I noticed this too but I know our skin even if it doesn't feel greasy it actually has our own natural oils hence why the screen looks oily is my touch on that, I noticed even with a good protector on it still happend

Have to clean the screen 2 or 3 times a day. It's not a high use phone. Never had this issue with previous phones ever, even after years of use. And that includes so and 8.
Just another samsun bit of nonsense. Built in obsolescence. Will never buy Samsung again. Literally have to fully clean it every day. I even clean my hands before I touch it. Samsung just means issues forever now
