    I would almost always put a Zagg screen protector on until my last 2 phones I think. The screen held up almost scratch free, although I do try and be careful with it. I decided to leave the screen protector on this phone but I'm already ready to remove it as it's all nicked up in a few spots, something I never had with my Zagg protectors. Makes me think the Samsung installed one is not exactly great quality to be this scratched up this fast despite treating the phone no different than my previous ones.

    How is everyone else's doing?

    Mine is still perfect but I put it in a case and haven't removed it. Once it has damage I'll put my spigen plastic one on.

    I took mine off after about a week. I noticed the FPS/home button area was already becoming matte from heavy use and it bugged me. Made the FPS more reliable after I took it off too

    Mine is showing a few wear areas after less than 2 weeks. I also have a large scuff by fingerprint sensor. I plan to remove and install a Skinomi screen protector soon.

    Mine is still good, but it will come off when it starts showing wear. Is plastic, so I'm sure it will eventually.

    I haven't had any wear around the FPS, but I mostly keep it unlocked with smart lock or have been using facial recognition since I just recently got the FPS to work reliably.

    Yup, same with me. Have the spigen neo flex on deck once this pre-installed screen starts to lose its usefulness.

    Mine got gouged within a few days. I had pre-ordered the ZAGG before I knew that the phone came with a screen protector already installed. After the gouge happened, I decided to try the ZAGG. It actually installed very easily, and I like the feel of it. The pre-installed protector was fine while it lasted. Who knows how long the ZAGG will last.

    Mine is still installed and loooks as good as it did day 1. I'm quite liking it. It doesn'r seem to pick up fingerprints or other smudges like most screen protectors. It's staying on until it starts showing wear.

    Yes my husband's is already messed up in a spot. I'll keep mine on when I get the phone until it messes up then go to the Zagg kiosk and get one put on. I'm guessing it will work good week the FPS.

    Its been fine. Instructions say to redo the fingerprint learning, which I did, and it works now the same as before it was applied.

    Mine got scratched up this weekend so I took it off and put on the Whitestone Dome that I purchased before I bought the phone. Now my FPS hardly works. It worked great with the factory screen protector.

    Mine is holding up very well. No scratches yet and I'll be keeping it on as long as I can. Gotta protect the investment.

    Did you turn on touch sensitivity and redo the fingerprints?

    Yes to both.

    It took for-ev-er for it to even acknowledge any finger was touching it when redoing my prints. It would not register even one touch. Now, a few hours later, I am finding that it's easier for it to recognize. Maybe it just needs time for the glue to settle in and completely dry. I'll see how it does the next couple days.

    It held up until it fell out of my vest pocket face down. SAMSUNG kickstand case.

    It actually did its job and protected the screen because it landed on a tiny stone. It had a hole but didn't go through.

    I don't wanna take mine off but there's constantly dust/dirt getting in the camera cut out and it drives me nuts until I force it out with my fingernail (instead of a simple wipe with a t-shirt/cloth)

    I don't wanna take it off because I don't want the screen to get scratched like my S8 did.

    Wondering if they sell a screen protector without a hole punch cut out... and if it would affect the cameras quality
