    Yes while it is a type of glue, it isn't super glue this not a permanent bond. It's more closer to rubber cement than anything else.

    Seriously guys it's not that hard to pull off and there is no damage from it.
    Thank you for explaining! Since I've never used the product and therefore have nothing to compare it with, it's good to have someone with knowledge of the brand chime in with regards to what the glue is like.

    It's time for me to remove the stock Samsung screen protector that my S10 plus came with and get a new one. The problem is that all of the information I'm seeing is about eight months old. The phone has received several FPS software updates, and perhaps there have been some product updates along the way. Have there been any improvements around the finger print sensor? I am leaning towards the Whitestone Dome screen protector, but I feel as though I can't trust anything I see or read today.

    Thank you.
    OK. So similar issue for me. New S10+ and built in screen protector took some damage when I dropped my phone down the side of my sofa bed last night.

    Everyone says the Whitestone Dome are the best. I usually hate screen protectors and they get bubbles or dust. But this phone is so expensive.

    £45 for a single pack. £60 for a double pack!! Gulp!! Amazon had a £5 voucher off the price. So I used that.

    Had to swallow my reluctance and opt for the double pack. At least I have 2 shots at getting it right.

    You are definitely buying one of the highest recommended brand out there! Let us know how your installation goes!

    I started with the Ailibote from Amazon and the fingerprint reader would not work at all. Smudges were horrendous. Stay away from it.

    Currently have the Invisible Shield as recommended in this forum. It was difficult to get my thumbprint registered, had to press really hard, but I eventually got it registered twice. There are a couple bubbles along the edge, but the thumbprint at least does work. It has been case-friendly with my BlackWeb case from Wal-Mart. It doesn't seem to smudge as bad as the first one.

    So far, the original screen protector that came on it has performed the best, even though it was just a film.

    @Kirstein Gourlay - Interested in your opinion of installation and initial impressions of the screen protector after the first few days of use.
    Is the finger print sensor working to your satisfaction?
    Are the (curved) edges peeling up?
    Is the camera lens covered or is there a cutout?
    Does your case fit OK?

    Thank you.

    Are any of the film protectors just like the original protector that came on the S10+?
    Over the last 10 years I've favored film protectors and generally had great results with them. One minor exception is that they often feel a bit tacky - nothing like glass or even the original protector, which for me, feels almost indistinguishable from glass.

    The Samsung film screen protector feels pretty premium - on par with the film that came with the phone, IMO.

    Morty,
    That OEM protector looks interesting, as some of the people that have reviewed it say that it feels just like the original. But, many other buyers really dislike it, and on the Samsung site, it's very poorly rated.

    Still, there are people like you that really love it, and I find that promising, so I may give it a try.
    I've looked in various online retailers, including eBay, but it looks like Samsung is the only seller for the 10+.

    Any other ideas of where to buy this at a better price point than Samsung's site?

    Agreed. I use nothing but Zagg. They are superb, AND they stand behind their product. No orange peel or stickiness, at least on the proper Invisible Shield product.

    Note: after installation, re-do your fingerprints.

    Which Zagg do you use? I know their is 3 different ones and the glass one doesn't read your fingerprint. One person on here had ultra clear and someone else from you tube mentioned glass fusion I think it was called and said it fit good had a camera cutout and that you didn't have to redo your fingerprint. I am going to try Zagg I guess since the stand at the mall puts them on. I called the other day they had one kind I forgot which one but it was 40 bucks but Best Buy had them on sale cheaper.

    Rose,
    I look forward to seeing your update. I know that I can buy a good film protector with the same compromises I've seen before - most notably a somewhat tacky feel.

    I am hoping there's a product that is just as good as the OEM protector that comes with the 10+

    You're right, I too saw the bad reviews and was concerned - but since Samsung made the product, I figured it had to work well with the screen and the in-display fingerprint scanner.

    Like I said, I was a little off with my installation and so I have some leftover tiny bubbles that I can smooth out still. It also depends on the cases I use - some kind of fit the phone a little differently, it seems. But that's user error. I do have an extra film I can install if need be.

    I'm a screen protector snob - and this is a pretty good way to keep my phone looking premium and still having access to the main security feature of the phone. I'm satisfied with my purchase!

    I'm not sure of where else you could purchase the film other than from Samsung's website - maybe Amazon?

    I did watch an installation video on YouTube and it really helped - not only with installation but also with seeing what the results of said installation would be. I was happy that the film had this "premium" look to it.

    Let us know what you decide!

    Looking at both Zagg and Samsung. Both have horrible reviews, but some people here on this forum like them. I guess this is just another example of people posting more often when they are unhappy.

    It is certainly a social phenomenon that I see everywhere there are reviews of products.

    I know I read good and bad reviews and I hate to spend so much on Zagg and not like it. I wish I hadn't messed up the ones Samsung sent me as a replacement back when we had 30 days to claim. I got a 2 pack gave my husband one I think he lost it and mine got messed up I had stuck it in my purse. I'm kind of still undecided I go back and forth.

    Buying screen protectors is actually a very complicated and stressful process - especially when you have the double whammy of in-display fingerprint sensors and curved screens, in many cases. Keep us posted on what you decide!

    All of a sudden my protector has gotten worse. It has 2 spots on the bottom left which of course shows up when screen is off really bad. Looks like 2 wholes in the protector. I have to get one here really soon. Anyone gotten one recently? I do want the FP to work well.
