Noticed my aw6 alum has intense haze/uneven texture on the ion-x glass when it’s under light. First time using alum version so wondering if this is normal?

What do mean by uneven haze/coating? Looks perfect to me. Perhaps do you mean the reflections at the edges of the screen?

If you look straight on at the screen, it’s almost like there’s marks of a keyboard on the screen. Reminds me a computer screen with keyboard prints on it lol.

Thanks. Yeah it’s hard to notice but just happened to come across it while I was under heavy light.

I still cant really see anything. Why dont you take a still screenshot from the video?
I swear it’s a lot more severe in person than on the video.
But if you focus on the 6pm-9pm quadrant in the video, you may know what I’m talking about.

I see what you mean. Like the coating or surface is not perfectly smooth/flat, so light reflections sort of shimmer slightly. My aluminum S5 does not look like that.

Take a damp microfiber cloth and wipe down the display, and see if that makes any type of difference. If it doesn’t, and you’re concerned with it, just exchange it for a new one, Being that you are in a 14 day return period.

Lol...some people are crazy...there is nothing wrong with your watch just enjoy it and stop trying to see flaws everywhere.
I don’t think the OP is looking for flaws where there aren’t any. If the screen on the watch is defective in some way, he should return the watch and buy a new one. I wouldn’t settle for a screen defect, if that is in fact what it is.

It does look warped. Best to go to a store and see if they are different there.

Exchanged for another one and definitely a lot better than the previous one I had. There’s still a little warp in comparison to my old sapphire glass versions but it’s night and day difference in comparison to my initial one!

It’s the coating/finish on the screen. I’ve used optical cleaners with a microfiber glass and definitely did not go away.

Good thing you were able to easily exchange it.
