I was just wondering if anybody has used Samsungs official screen protectors? Its 15 for 2 from their online store and it says its 92% transparent and anti reflective. I usually go with Steinheil from Spigen however it takes a while for them to release certain products (especially in the UK). If they arent very good can anyone recommend any good alternatives that dont reduce the quality of the screen?

When i had my Note 2 i put on a Spigen anti glare and it significantly reduced the screen quality so put an oleophobic one on instead and it was miles better. When i got my Note 3 i put an ultra crystal on it straight away. You pay a bit extra for the spigen ones but i would definitely say they are worth it however they havent released any for the tab s yet

Im one of those people who put a protector on straight out of the box so wont be able to compare the difference between having a protector on and not having one on but i still want it to look the best it possibly can

I personally have an amFilm screen protector for mine. It works really well, and it's on sale, though. I'd grab one of these instead of the $15 one you were talking about.

I have the iLLumishield. It's probably the best I have used including some that were over $30. It's crystal clear, can hardly tell it's on. Fingers slide across like the bare glass and goes on easy. See link.

at least if they do get damaged, it's the protector first.

too bad you can't get glass protectors for the nokia lumina 930, just got this phone.
