    So, this preinstalled Screen Foil from Huawei is just an annoying fingerprint magnet, and i was thinking about removing it, but since i didn't find a well fitting glass protector for it, i'm not sure if I could just use it without any screen protector at all?

    Does anyone know if the Screen (without a protector) is a Fingerprint magnet as well? Or can anyone recommend a pretty good fitting glass protector?

    I can't think of any phone that ships without an oleophobic coating and I'm sure the Mate 9 is no exception.

    That being said, some coatings are better than others, lasting longer or being more effective at start.


    You can buy oleophobic coating kits on Amazon and the like. Check verified purchaser reviews. Also, I've found that Qmadix Liquid Glass is highly resistant to fingerprints and also claims to give an extra layer of 9H hardness to the glass. You can even register after purchase and get a free $100 insurance against breakage. I'm really into the Liquid Glass product and have put it on a few phones, my 2-in-1 screen, watch faces and fitness bands...

    Here is the original Liquid Glass: https://smile.amazon.com/Qmadix-Liqu...x+liquid+glass

    This one appears to be their "generic label" which sells for less and has no insurance benefit. However, it does say Qmadix on the back of the packaging and I can't tell that it performs any less than the "name brand." https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Good luck.

    I pulled that so called protector off my mate 9.
    I find it much better now after removing it.
    2 months and no marks at all on the screen.

    The screen is Gorilla glass I believe.

    I will say that I do like that Huawei pre installed a screen protector. It might not be a good one but it protects the screen until you can get a better one

    I am keeping the pre installed screen cover that came with my Mate. I ordered a tempered glass with one broken on arrival and another one 1 to 2 mm short on one side. I find that the fingerprints don't bother me compared to the raised and uneven edges of the tempered glass that is distracting with the screen on or off.

    It is pretty hard to find a tempered glass screen protector that fits edge to edge unfortunately. If you need edge to edge then plastic is the way to go

    I find that true as I had to use a plastic one for my Honor 8
