Can anyone recommend a good tempered glass screen protector for the note 10.1 2014 model? I can't seem to find many and the ones I do have scant and very mixed reviews at best... I've never gotten a tempered glass screen protector but I definitively want the added drop/shatter protection. The only thing that worries me is that if I accidently but a crap one, the S Pen responsiveness will be hindered or the protector will peel off etc.

Also, an antiglare tempered glass would be amazing but I've only found these to be in the plastic protectors. I could live without it to get better shatter protection, though so any suggestions on the tempered glass protector is appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I bought one on but it seems they removed it from the page; the exact name was:

Angibabe Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector Film for Samsung Note 10.1 2014 Edition P600

I like it very much, the tab feels natural and you can stop worrying about screen scratchs and stuff. Finger detection works perfectly. Pen functions very well with the exception of on thing: if you don't use the pen perfectly perpendicular to the screen near the edges(about .5 centimeter) the detection is moved millimeters from the actual pen tip touching the screen. This problem may be happening to all tablets and I don't know it because i wont take the protector off but it seems logic that the detection is affected that way with a some space added between the pen and the actual screen. Theoretically this could be fixed with calibration on the drivers or kernel or whatever but i am no expert.
Anyway, if you stay away from the corners and the screen borders you'll be very happy with the results a tempered glass has on this device.

I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in real quick. Ive put 4 diffrent ones on mine cause I messed up every one. Lol but make sure you turn tablet off and its not hot cause I made the mistake of playing on tablet then putting it on and a air bubble came where the screen was hot and I couldnt get out. I also messed up the others but when I did the tape on sides like a hinge it went on perfect. You can google it, there are alot of videos. I bought mine now on ebay. If you want a good one and want to spend some extra money there is ghost glass but I think its like 50 dollars. Mine was cheaper and they said it was anti fingerprint but I get fingerprints on it. They come right of with screen cleaner rag though. I just went to look on ebay but there not selling the one I bought anymore. Mine works fine with spen and fingers. I did buy the cheap one from china also, I would stay away from those. They always come broke, they will send another one but it takes some time to get.

Thumbs up
Went to the store todsy and tried the galaxy note 12. It had the same problem i was describing above and without any protector so i am guessing it is a tablet problem and we can use protector without fearing it might affect the usage.

I got a cheap one from ebay too. It's a little thick, 4mm, and doesn't fit perfectly, probably 1-2mm gap around the edges, but the tablet works just as it did without it. I'm a heavy user of the s pen and i don't see any difference in offset. I didn't have any problem applying it...i used the home key hole to line it up.

I agree with the other poster that it does nothing to discourage fingerprints, but overall i'm happy with it and would use the same cheap ebay one again. I'd say give it a try.... $20 to try is better than $50 for the "good" one unless you really need a perfect and thin fit.
