    Try Samsung's online shop for screen protectors.

    I've seen from tutorials that when applying the Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector it's advised to press down on where the fps is after the first curing and then perform the 2nd curing.

    I'm hoping to see posts from people who have done this and the fps works as I always use the Whitestone Dome.

    Question about the factory installed screen protector. I am trading in the S10 that I owned for 7 weeks (bought on Amazon Prime day). Should I leave the factory screen protector on when I ship the phone back to Samsung?

    No need to remove - it's a perfectly good screen protector
    I agree. I kept mine on.

    I peeled mine off because it started moving around, I could only tell because the camera cutout wasn't centered anymore.

    The reasons why I and perhaps other people put the glass option onto the phone I believe are...


    Feels a better user experience using a glass screen protector.

    Offers up more protection from drops.

    The plastic protector may eventually have marks from the S-Pen.

    The plastic protector is more prone to marks and scratches.


    Just my opinion.

    I would say yes as it adds extra In-Transit protection and add a note with the phone advising the original screen protector is still fitted.

    Especially if the plastic protector is marked up.

    At the end of the day Samsung know people remove these to fit their own choice of Glass or plastic options.

    This is why face ID is the ultimate. Fingerprints on a screen don't work well all of the time. I notice that mine doesn't work my fingers are dry. So I have to lick my fingers sometimes. Just an awesome way to unlock your phone in 2019.

    Does face ID require you see your own ugly mug 100 times a day? You know, first thing in the morning, sitting on the toilet, you name it....

    Edit. Just played with it, and I'm glad to see it doesn't sit there and hide your face. Seems to work pretty well

    Obviously not going to protect like the Whitestone but I would say it's on a par with the Spigen, I tried the Spigen on my Note 8 but took it off after a few weeks and never had another but this Samsung factory protector seems ok and I'll see how it goes.
    The Whitestone is great garbage

    Cracked from 3" fall. Thin thin thin.

    I've never cracked my screen (over many years) in the way this fell and cracked. Low impact, low velocity, low distance

    Thank you! I wound up doing just that. I packed up my S10 and put in a note saying that the factory screen protector was still on the phone since I only owned it for 7 weeks.

    Have any of you had an issue with the built in protector scratching really easily? I have only had my phone less than a week and i noticed a pretty large scratch today...hoping it did not go through it to the screen... anyone had this happen?? Don't want to take it off to see as I don't have a replacement protector.:/

    There are several reports indicating that due to the glue used to attach the Whitestone, screens actually crack faster than without. As the clue hardens, it increases pressure on the screen, making it crack more easily. Just read some of the comments on the note 10+ Whitestone review on YouTube.

    I find that extremely hard to believe. How can they prove it was because of the glue? Pressure on the screen does not increase because the glue hardens. The glue is still pliable upon removal. I've dropped my phone several times and only the screen protector has cracked.

    I’ve never cracked a phone screen, with or without a screen protector. But it’s really not that far fetched. The glue sightly retracts as it dries, pulling on the glass. I’ve had a window crack after applying a glued on glass breach sensor once
