    Is it a plastic protector? I assume it's not as good as some of the glass protectors....

    Feels like a plastic protector to me. Mine wasnt aligned perfectly and it stopped right before the curved edge. I'm leaving it on just because neither of those issues bother me.

    I'm not sure but it's likely plastic. I love that they applied a screen protector.

    Yup plastic. I took mine off because the little dust particles clinging around the camera punch hole was driving OCD crazy.

    You are correct. It is a plastic screen protector. It protects the screen from scratches though. Thus being a screen protector. I used to use these all the time back in the day as these are all we had. I don't mind it. It's free. It wasn't extra. It was included in the cost of the phone. I'll use it until it gets messed up then switch it out.

    Is it better than the plastic coating pieces that they usually put on the phones in the box that you take off as soon as you get it out of the box?

    No, same quality.... I'm keeping it on to protect it from scratches but it does not worth $30 as Samsung claims.

    Maybe not $30. But it's definitely equivalent to the old school film screen protectors that existed long before glass ones.

    How do you take it off? Seems very well stuck on.

    I'm leaving mine on

    It's fitted very well; no raised edges and it covers the screen well too.

    I've altered the settings to make the screen sensitivity better for screen protectors that are fitted; it's set up fingerprints with no issues (just press on a bit harder) and away you go

    Don't mind the included screen protector. Usually use a wet install atmoursuit. The included protector doesn't seen to leave fingerprints on the screen.

    I haven't changed the screen sensitivity for screen screen protectors, but I'm also using the Face unlock.

    Like others said, it's not as nice as a Whitestone, but for the time being it's working just fine.

    And it's not like the factory protectors of days past. Those had a tab at the bottom that indicated it was to be removed; replacement screens still come like this. This one is designed to stay on the phone until it wears out as you can tell by how hard it is to remove.

    I'm leaving it on, until I can see dust collecting around the edges...then it comes off.

    I'm doing the same despite hearing about the apparent lack of quality of the screen protector it comes with

    I don't know about anyone else, but I've been loving the pre-installed screen protector. To the point that I've already forgot it's even there. Which I've always thought a screen protector is all about.

    You can't tell it's there, it's clear, it's as smooth as the glass, it protects from everyday scratches and it literally doesn't show any fingerprints.

    I can't ask for more personally. Better than those bulky tempered glass screen protectors that look ridiculous on the phone imo.

    I'm enjoying it too. It does the job as intended. Its not the flimsy type manufactures normally use when devices are shipped. It is installed well and you can't even tell its there. I didn't pre order a screen protector after I heard the s10 shipped with one. So far I haven't regretted that decision.

    When I was at BB during the pre-ordering phase there were a couple of Samsung Reps there and we talked about the screen protectors in general. I expressed the concern about adequate screen protectors being available that worked with the fingerprint sensor. They told me that Samsung was putting a screen protector on as part of the delivery. They also said that the material being used was intended to be the same material as the screens themselves. I can't corroborate ... Just relaying what I was told.

    Same here. I usually don't use screen protectors, but I kept this one on since it doesn't seem to bother me.

    Snap! Mine too - I was gutted as I thought I'd scratched the screen. I'll see how it goes before I rip it off. Was enjoying the screen too!
