So I noticed companies are already selling Screen Protectors for the Note 10+. From what I've read the Note comes with a Samsung Pre-installed one. Since I never had an S10, how is the pre-installed protector vs any of these 3rd party ones? Any reason not to use that one? I'm assuming if it gets nasty Samsung sells replacements. Also looks like the phone uses Gorilla Glass 6 vs 5 on the Note 9, so I'm guessing it should be more resistant to scratches and cracks.

scratch resistance have gotten worse over the years because corning is focusing on drop protection, and you kind of have to choose one or the other. Still think GG3 is the pinnacle of scratch resistance.

the screen protector is the same as any other plastic film one. Probably not amazing for the spen though, so maybe invest in a LOCA based glass protector. Whitestone is the easiest to install... but its pretty dang pricey. Definitely cheaper chinese options.

Very last post in this thread there is a YouTube video that shows the quality.

pulled it off mine to replace with a whitestone.

despite being factory it still had a fair gap around the side and it is probably about the same quality as any cheap film protector, so as far as protection is involved it will probably do for a day or 2 till you get something better but ultimately it's trash.

I don't mind the factory protector. It feels pretty slick like glass, is very oleophobic, and the SPen glides across it no problem.

That said, I've ordered Whitestone Dome and will install it as soon as it gets here. As I think it offers better protection.

If you don't want tempered glass and messy LOCA installs, or just don't want to spend the money on Whitestonez than I HIGHLY recommend the Ringke Easy Dual soft screen protector. I had it on my Note 8, Note 9, and I installed it on my wife's S10+. Perfectly clear, smooth as glass. It's so clear, it covered the front facing camera but doesn't affect the picture quality at all. Like it's not even there.

I've never found a 3rd party screen protector for a phone with a curved screen that worked well. Starting with the S7 Edge, Note 8, and Note 9. I've tried all manor of screen protectors from glass, to plastic, to that crazy nano liquid stuff. Now I've never tried a whitestone dome one before. But every previous protector I've ever tried has been junk and has fallen off, gotten dust behind it or made the s-pen horrible to use. Maybe some of the Note 10+ ones will be different but for now the one that came with it seems to be working fine.

Does your finger print scanner still work?

I installed a generic Loca glass screen protector but although a perfect install and fit, fingerprint doesn't work anymore
