The protective film has bubbles—is the display even new?

The answer is, yes the display is new.

However, we test every single display on function and cosmetics before we bring it into the trade. Therefore, it is necessary to remove the protective film once. To save time (and costs for our customers), the film is then applied again by hand and not by a laminating machine. This can sometimes lead to small air bubbles. But the protective function is not impaired and you can make the installation without running the risk of scratching the screen.
