    I've read that the Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protectors work with the Samsung in-screen fingerprint sensors, but I'm looking for something more affordable. For my current S10 I'm using a TPU film protector which works well for the FPS but it has a slight rubbery feel. A lot of glass protectors advertise that they work with Samsung's FPS, but I've read reviews stating the contrary.

    Can anyone recommend a glass protector that has proven to work with the Samsung in screen FPS (other than the Whitestone Dome)?

    THanks.

    Can get the amFilm tempered glass for $20. Installs just like the whitestone glass. Was posted a couple days ago. Don't know if the codes still work.

    I got the Zagg hybrid fusion. Not sure I'll like it since it is not really glass.

    Thanks for that link, however, the amFilm Tempered Glass Protector for the S21 and S21+ are not fingerprint compatible.

    I'm thinking about ordering this one:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU6914924

    It's tempered glass and supposedly fingerprint sensor compatible. The installation video shows the user successfully unlocking the phone with their fingerprint after installing the glass protector.

    There's no reviews yet so I was going to wait a bit and see if anyone posts anything in the next few days or weeks.

    I'm going to go with the Spigen tempered glass one. I've used a variety of their stuff over the years and have never had a problem with any of them. My wife uses a Spigen screen protector on her iPhone and has zero complaints also.

    It's worth a short but the price seems to good to be true. A 4-pack for only $13? I loved glass protectors on my phone until I got the S10 and noticed the flexible protectors work better with the FPS.

    Yeah, that's why I'm waiting for some reviews to be posted! I also noticed that some glass protectors are good for the FPS, however, I noticed that they have a HUGE cutout where your finger goes. You have to look closely to make sure you're not suckered into buying one of those.

    I've never used Whitestone Dome before and was thinking about using it this time. But now I hear cheaper glass screen protectors might work with the FPS, so I'm curious what works for the rest of you guys. I've got some time to think about it since I ordered the black 512 GB ultra, which is arriving mid-February.

    BTW, apparently Spigen has their own version of Whitestone Dome now!?

    https://www.spigen.com/collections/g...32908039323695

    Anyone seen this or used it on a Note 20 Ultra (it's available for that phone right now)? I never order directly from Spigen since their direct sales are more expensive, but if this shows up on Amazon for something in the $40 range, I may try it out!

    Is this the same one on Amazon? I see it says precise cutouts for your Spigen case so I am assuming it fits best with one of their cases.

    I wonder what the clarity and touch sensitivity is for these types of glass screen protectors? Also, how difficult is it to remove these protectors if they crack?

    For me, whitestone dome is way too expensive considering my new S21 doesn't have curved edges. I think that's the primary advantage of the Whitestone Dome - that it fits phones with curved edges.

    I'm thinking just about any 3rd party glass protector will work just as well and be much easier to apply and remove when cracked. Based on my experience with my S10, I think the FPS will work just fine with a screen protector.

    I agree non curved phone go with any of them , curved Dome is a must in my opinion.

    I posted this a few comments up from yours. $30 on Amazon. This is the one I'm getting, and they make a protector for the cameras too, also on axon for $11 or $12.

    Yes I got it from somebody in this thread That's why I posted it. They had posted it and I went there to look at it. I just do Zagg because there's a kiosk in the mall and they put it on for me.

    Any reviews on the glass protectors from Amazon? I was hoping my regular S21 came with a screen protector on it out of the box but it just had a flimsy film that got dirt underneath it immediately. Probably just going to grab whatever I can for the time being.

    I'm still waiting to read newly posted reviews on Amazon regarding some of their glass screen protectors that claim to work with the fingerprint sensor. Right now, I don't have any screen protector installed on my new S21 and the FPS works great (super fast). I don't want to install a protector that has issues with fingerprint unlocking.

    Same, I'm surprised how fast it is. I love the feel of the screen without a protector but I'm not that brave lol. I just ordered the one below will let you know tomorrow how it works.
