    Price is pretty close, so is it worth it? Do the glass ones feel like the normal S5 screen?

    I've never used a plastic one; my Tech Armor ballistic glass protector feels like the S5 glass screen. But it has one HUGE advantage (besides the scratch protection) - it's very very resistant to smudging from skin oil on your fingertips. (The Zagg glass protectors are really bad in this regard.) On another S5 forum a user noted that he's a mechanic and is surprised at how well the Tech Armor resists smudging.

    Yes and yes. IMHO, it is tons better than the plastic ones. I barely notice it is there and it feels like what it is, glass!

    Just to reiterate what others have said, they are absolutely worth it. I wouldn't, however, go spend $40 on one of the more expensive brands. The $10-$15 protector I got (luvvitt) does just fine and then some.

    I always used the plastic ones, but after I got my S5 I decided to try a glass one... I will never go back to plastic!

    Zagg Glass for the win . It also has a Life time warranty.

    I'm using the plastic one that came with my UAG case and have been pleasantly surprised. I normally hate screen protectors.

    Yes absolutely worth it. The feel is so much better. Your fingers will glide across the screen instead of dragging across. They don't have that tacky feel of plastic. I have a Spigen glasstr on mine.

    It all depends on how well you handle your phone. I was thinking about getting a screen protector. But I handle my phones pretty well so I just use the plastic protector.

    I got the glass screen protector for my brand new Samsung Galaxy S5 and I love it! I forget that I even have a screen protector on my phone! From here on out, I'll always go glass instead of plastic! Way better feel and better protection!

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IKR...cUvbUpU3909114 That's what I'm using. It was closer to $10 when I bought it a few months ago, but that's still a good price compared to spigen, zagg, etc.

    I think the glass screen protectors just feel better. My fingers drag across plastic screen protectors, but glass screen protectors feel like the real screen.

    I have the ZeroLemon glass screen protector. I think it was $10 on Amazon. I love it. I will never go back to a plastic screen protector again. I just wish there was a smaller protector for the rear camera.

    Had never even heard of them until this past weekend when I got my S5 and the Verizon rep asked if I wanted one. $18.

    I am freaking amazed at how great it is, would never use anything else now.

    I don't know if I've been lucky or what, I've never used a screen protector and every phone I've used that has one drives me crazy. Someone told me I should get one of these glass ones but to be honest I don't see the need. I have two kids and am not super easy on my phone, so to each their own.

    More than anything, I like the oleophobic coating. It significantly cuts down on the amount of fingerprints on the screen.

    I know! It's amazing. I was always wiping them for YEARS. Now - it's almost magic.

    Yes they are worth it! The zagg glass are very nice. Installation is very easy. A little thick for my liking. I think .40mm. Price is high unless you buy from fleabay. The Pefect fit is really nice as well and is fool proof on the install. Just expensive also. Skinomi tech glass and iloome flex, and mime ghost glass are also nice cheaper alternatives. the skinomi $20 and Perfect fit $40 were my favs. They all handle fingerprints way better the plastics ones
