    I personally was shocked when I learned that Samsung was reinstalling screen protectors on the S10 series, but that's good for the customer since the price of the phones went up so high it's always nice to see the customer getting a bonus

    That being said, any of you find the screen protector being in the way a bit? like I've cleaned out the front camera cut out at least twice in the 3 days I've owned it. and I could be wrong but I really really believe it's making way more smudges and keeping oils on the screen a lot worse than the straight up glass would have.

    I'm leaving mines on for now but I feel I might change that sooner than later (especially since the screen is flat so getting a screen protector on is a lot easier now)

    So are you leaving it on or taking it off?

    For the s10e models I see no reason to immediately take it off. For the other 2 variants for reason of the fp sensor, I probably would.

    I'll leave mine on until a good tempered glass is out that isn't Whitestone and doesn't cost $50.

    Funny enough, I have ordered some cheap protectors but I'm hanging out with it on until it's time to lift it. The front camera thing is something I have dealt with as well but I like that it is case friendly lol.

    I took mine off as soon as I got a Gadget Guard Tempered Glass. Though I am having issues with Tempered glass not being fully adhered to the screen around the edges and it not being very case friendly (Otterbox, Speck, etc.)

    So, my hope is better tempered glass will come with time.

    Didn't even realized it was an actual screen protector when I got it. Thought it was just a plastic. It was off minutes after I got the phone set up. Never really use screen protectors. Honestly not sure why I should need if the glass is as strong as they say. Haven't had much issues to date. I do use a case tho.

    I've always used screen protectors on flat screens, tried on the S8 and it came off a few days later never tried again.

    Debating whether it'll be on or taken off, still haven't decided yet but since I haven't taken it off now it'll probably be on for a little while

    Mine got easily scratched in a day even though I'm really careful with my phones so I got this one, fits perfectly but remember, you should not put your phone in any case for the first 2-4 hours otherwise it won't stick 100% and the moment you put it in a case it will come off.

    If I had the S10e I'd definitely appreciate having the screen protector on as a temporary fix until I got a tempered glass screen protector. It's so great that Samsung is looking after their customers like this. I know OnePlus has done this in the past as well - it just shows you that they care about their customers. So many users buy screen protectors online and/or after the fact, so having a temporary solution in place while you wait is really great and way less stressful!

    couldn't agree more. Lots or people said they only did it for the fingerprint scanner under the display but the s10e does not have that feature so that just tells me that Samsung did everyone a solid by giving us it built on before even purchasing

    They totally did. I think Samsung treats their customer base pretty well. They sell expensive hardware but it's quality, and they keep their customers satisfied.

    Especially with the Beta program and Good lock I definitely can't complain. Only better that are phones have great cameras and the best screens on the market

    Mine is still on. Not 1 scratch and looked pretty good. I haven't ordered a glass screen protector or case yet and the factory one is doing just fine.

    The S10 is my 5th smartphone and none previously had a screen protector. No damage to any because I am not the type to abuse the screen. Anyways, I gave it a try and noticed that the first week, I got a lot of "press harder" messages and read elsewhere that it was probably the screen protector causing the scenario. Yesterday the phone gave me 100% error messages. It was like I was unregistered.

    That was it for the screen protector, and guess what??? That was it for all error messages. Perfect performance every time.

    Mine is coming off today. It served its purpose and kept my screen scratch free during my vacation last week. Just received my Whitestone Dome Glass this morning. After work the factory installed protector is coming off and the Whitestone will be going on.

    Keeping it in. I don't usually put screen protectors on my phone's but since it's there, I'll keep it until it starts looking dull

    I wanted to keep it on, but I had to take it off because it was unusable while wearing polarized sunglasses. You just couldn't see the screen in portrait mode. Took the screen protector off and now I can see my beautiful screen again.

    Mine is on the way. I'll keep this one on until the coating wears off and it starts to look nasty. Probably another week at the most.

    I actually got one on my S10e model, and after 3 days, it's already bubbling in the corners. Not sure why but will take if off once it starts peeling off. I never used one my last phone, the Galaxy S5, which I had for 5 years, so it will probably be fine without one on this device as well.
