    Hello all

    I have put a Tempered glass screen protector on my iPhone 6. It only covers the flat part of the screen (I knew this). All in all easy to apply and it looks like I did a decent job at sticking it to the iPhone.

    I only have one problem with it: near the edges of the protector, it looks like there is a "wet border" with very small bubbles. I also have this on a very very small portion of the screen itself. My question now is: will this stay this way or will it dry up? It is noticable when looking at a white screen from an angle. Can I do anything to make this disappear?

    Thanks in advance and let me know if I should make a photo of it.

    Does it look like the sides did not seal? I've had issues with certain brands. Some have better quality than others.

    I've had issues with some, sometimes it's not a perfectly aligned install, or possibly a bad screen protector. It probably won't go away though.

    Mmm maybe I'll change back to plastic screen protector then. It doesn't feel as good as glass, but it certainly looks 10x better without the 'bubbly' sides. Thanks for the answers.

    What brand is the screen protector?

    Some dust or tiny residue probably got trapped under the screen protector or it could be trapped air because of an unsuccessful install, was it a dry or wet installation?

    Had a tiny strip on the right that wouldn't stay stuck. Spigen on a 6S Plus.

    Tried a few times to gently get it to disappear but it would just come back.....then it chipped!

    Waste of time.
