I can see mine fine - what are your USB connection settings? Are you attaching the SD card to the PC exclusively as a storage device instead of an MTP device?

Tried it as USB and pictures only. No dice. It can see the SD card and does save stuff to it but yeah on PC only Internal Storage comes up.

anyone had any success with glass screen protectors? the one I got (cheap) was a joke.. was a nuglass.. wasnt very clear, was thick and u could see the glue on edges

Back to film for now till I decide (which is lifting on edges) might need to bite bullet and go one of the expensive $60 glass ones.

I highly recommend the Whitestone Dome Glass. The ones with adhesive on the edges are the worst kind you can get. Sensitivity on the dome glass is great & the edges aren't felt when using the device.

someone else recommended that (if it wasn't you).

The installation looks so complex haha..

Thats hectic as, glad to see some proper glass protectors though the ones with glue only on the outsides are useless.

Why not rock a naked screen for the first year and if it gets scratched you can "accidentally" crack your screen and get it replaced free of charge?

Yeah - dump the protector. If the glass is the same as the S8+ it is super scratch resistant.
Use mine in heavy metal dust environment with no scratches at all so far for many months.

It's more about drop protection.

The dome cover looks real good compared to normal screen protectors for sure. The video above is a beaut.
I do have a cracked screen but can't see it most of the time. The top layer is some magic coating I'm sure haha.
