    There is a current thread with a recent conversation about a rainbow effect with a screen protector, and from what I gather, it’s normal, but I could be mistaken.

    It is normal. Since the glass protector sits right at the edge of the OLED display. If you get a screen protector that goes a little over the display, like the Belkin, then it won’t produce any rainbow effect.

    It's hard to see but is it right on the edge? That's a known "issue" with glass screen protectors and the OLED screen. Is the protector aligned exactly centered left to right? If it's slightly off center and the edge of the glass is at the edge of the display, it will show a rainbow.

    My Spigen does it on that edge too because it's very slightly off. I don't see it anymore (it's there but I don't notice it like I did initially).

    I used the alignment tray anker provide but other people say it’s normal.

    I stopped using screen protectors because of this. Had the rainbow on my iPhone 6S Plus and have been rocking the naked screens ever since.

    I have the same protector but the rainbow effect is at the top under the notch, not on the sides. Not a big enough distraction to try to install it again.

    As was previously stated, if the edge overlaps with the actual screen you will get this effect. Light diffusion will happen at the edges of the glass. Put on your protector precisely and you won't have this problem. I applied two Spigen protectors so far on two iPhone X phones and neither had this problem.

    Give Rhinoshield a go, they have an E2E Tempered Glass Screen protector the upside is no rainbow, the downside is depending on the case it may lift the 4 corners up but its no the end of world compared to a rainbow affect.
