    I'd like to see how many here have a Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G with a Screensaver on it here on this forum,

    With a screen protector on, I'm stuck with the finger print circle that shows (faintly and strongly) on all screens, messages, photos, home screen etc. This one really pisses me off and I'm told by the T-Mobile salesman that ALL android phones do this. If I don't use a screen protector, it doesn't show... but I must have a screen protector on there to protect the screen. Since I make a living with wildlife/nature/landscapes etc. customers like WA state forest service, can "faintly" see that circle in the photos, which almost ruins it. If you don't use a screensaver, it's doesn't show up. I'm temped to take mine off.

    Here is the website and the 4 reviews on it are all bad/one star:

    I want to see who actually has one before I go talk to that salesman at T-Mobile about another Screen protector and possilby a different phone?

    Mine looks like this:

    Sounds like a T-Mobile (USA) thing as my global, Exynos, phone came with a screen protector pre-installed and does not highlight the fingerprint sensor.

    How can I get a moderator to change my title? Screensaver should be Screen Protector. I don't know what I was thinking.

    Okay, problem solved here as well. I took the Screen Protector in for refund and no problem. I told the salesman why did the other salesman, (wasn't there at the time) told me I was stuck with it as as all newer android phones have that problem. I said I found out that was not true. He didn't say no or yes, just smiled while refunding me.

    Then I went to the large Verizon store in the local Mall and they had what I wanted from ZAGG.

    He installed it and it looks great, no fingerprint scanner circle showing anywhere in any program! So that T-Mobile salesman was full of BULL.

    I'm going to try it. I've never installed a glass one before. It has to be easier than that filmy stuff.

    I don't trust myself to do it. So I buy local where they will also install them for free. Sometimes even the experts have to do it more than once.
