    This guy puts phones through tough, abusive tests. I'm talking about box cutters to the display screen, camera lens, etc. Kind of difficult to watch.

    I have read several reviews saying the S8 Active had an easily scratchable screen. People complained because if they put a screen protector on it the touch sensitivity of the screen is reduced. Apparently Samsung used to have a software setting to adjust screen sensitivity, but no more.

    I was surprised to hear the S8 Active has a plastic film on top of the gorilla glass. This is easily scratched. I wonder if it is replaceable?

    AT&T is $40 a pop for glass protectors. I put $80, did not want to chance it.

    You put on two glass screen protectors? How is your screen sensitivity to touch?

    OK, that makes sense. Did you notice any loss of touch sensitivity, or did you buy the phones and immediately install the protectors? Were you able to compare before and after installing the protectors?

    I'd say it passes with flying colors, hey? Wow! But that guy? If he asked to look at my phone, I'd be headed down the road in the opposite direction... FAST!

    Bought the phones and immediately installed the protectors because the reviews all complained about screen screen scratches easily. I got the ZAGG INVISIBLE SHIELD glass+, have no complaints at all.
