    3 weeks in my factory installed screen protector has a few very minor hair line scratches. Nothing noticeable while screen is on.

    Mine is still on. Doesn’t seem to affect the finger scanner. It works 99% of the time.
    Same, I've never used a screen protect, NEVER!! Decided to leave this one on just to try it, it hasn't been an issue or bothered me so it stays. We'll see how long it last and then I'll decide whether I get a new one or not.

    I left it on all year last year on my s10. Granted I only used it for 6-7 months but it got fairly scratched up. But again not noticeable when screen was lit. I never used a screen protector on s8 or s9 as they didn’t come installed and I would get a lot of very minor hairline scratches on my screen. That would tick me off. But it was hard to find a screen protector that would work on curved screens.

    Any suggestion for a good case-ready/not tempered glass protector?

    Took mine off the Note 10 Plus only to regret it. None of the replacement felt as good to the touch in my experience.
    I feel yeah Spot on.
    Mine took a 3ft fall and face planted on a upside down diamond plate aluminum lid of a tool box cover the second day I had it.
    Marred the screen protector but no damage at all except my nerves.
    Since I'm on my 4th protector and it's chewed up.
    Nothing is as good as the factory one. Samsung should offer replacements and installation for these curved screen demons. Between finding a case that protects the s pen and then the screen it's a time/money consuming pain.

    As I found out the factory protector feels good and offers more protection than one would imagine.
    I don't want sand scratches on my black cars and especially something I'm looking at for hours at a time.

    Full disclosure...I just realized my screen protector is still on today. It's so barely noticeable. But before my phone arrived, I ordered a tempered glass screen protector to protect the investment. Still waiting on it to arrive

    Keep one on to protect my screen. Definitely helped tonight as it hit stuck in my recliner. Took a lot of work to get it out and was sure it was cracked, but it only damaged the screen protector and case which are the easiest things to replace.

    Full disclosure, I put a screen protector on, took it off (because it didn't stay put due to the case), THEN realized there was a factory screen protector already on the phone. I should be kicked off the forum for my stupidity!

    The factory protector does feel pretty decent.

    I have a Whitestone Dome in the box but will use the factory one until it's too scratched up like others said. Gorilla glass or not, if I know there are scratches on the screen itself, it'll ruin my life.

    I've kept mine on, ordered a cheap tempered glass which went on perfect minus that ugly circle for the fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor barely worked, I'm thinking probably because I had left the stock screen protector on underneath it. The stock protector feels good and barely noticeable but I'm considering taking it off and getting Whitestone dome or amfilm ultra. My concern is that they won't fit with my Defender case. I've barely used screen protectors since the s6 edge because tempered glass never worked right for me on the curved screens and I wasn't good at putting film on without bubbles.

    Amfilm made a good tempered glass for the note 9 but they broke easily, didn't fit with Otterbox defender etc... I have actually never broke a screen (knock on wood) in my 24 yrs of using a cell phone and the majority of that time was with no screen protector. I have however, scratched many film protectors and shattered many tempered glass protectors. Funny enough when I have dropped my phones without a protector on it, there has never been any damage. Defender cases and even medium size cases have tended to keep my screen from touching any surface I've dropped a phone on. One of my phones even survived unscathed a fall on rocks which I'm sure the screen did come into contact with the rocks. I think the tempered glass breaking many times wouldn't have broken the actual screen based off of most of my experiences. It's more of a mental insurance for me I guess.

    Kinda wish I'd left the screen protector on my Ultra now or at least replaced it with a tempered glass one. That's every Galaxy phone I've owned with an edge display since the S7e shattered on first drop for me 😭

    That image puts a chill down my spine, watching Rambo last blood was easier
    They need a good case especially for corner protection on these almost no bezel look devices.

    how is that protector, I was thinking about getting it.
    It's a great screen protector, works with the fingerprint scanner, adheres well, case friendly. The installation has a lot of steps. 16 all together. There's an adhesive. Mines took about 20 minutes to install. There are some air spots but it comes with 2 protectors so I could do another install if I'd like, you don't notice it when the screen is on and the screen is so well protected I don't care about the 2 spots.
