It really is just one of those strange things that happen. I've always used screen protectors since that would happen to me even though I treat my phone like a baby, but this time around, out of frustration with halos and my hatred for normal protectors, I'm going naked and have not had a single scratch since I got the phone in the beginning of May.

You are sure they were not there out of the box? some users complained they had scratches out of the box like S6 and S7
Quality control is not what it used to be in tech devices

Also make sure you never end up with sand in your pouch or case, that will cause scratches no matter how hard your screen is

Yep if you go to the beach with your HTC 10 (or any other phone) without a film or tempered glass on the screen, let it in your car and take 2 showers before touching the screen :laugh:

Welp, had a couple of days of joy with the AliExpress one. Last night the top right chipped after lightly tapping the corner of the bed frame and today the middle side chipped from being dropped inside the car. Really flimsy material if you ask me. Going to go back to the films for now.

Spigen has a new glass protector on Amazon.
I just ordered it on Amazon for $10. I've always liked Spigen products, so hopefully this protector will be a good one. I haven't bothered with any other screen protectors for the 10 yet (due to reviews), but I'll post reactions and pictures once I receive it next week.

Thanks for the heads up regarding the protector, too!

You are talking about the phone or the tempered glass?

    So, just throwing in my experience, I tried the fullscreen glass protectors (like g-color), but wasn't crazy about how thick it was over the fingerprint scanner. It made my scan misread too much. Also, since the edges of the screen curve back, there was a tiny, tiny gap at the edges which collected dust and made the protector pop off a bit now and then (especially with my case). As for the other glass protectors, I just didn't like the crazy shapes they added to the screen. So using the "phone size comparison" tool on Phone Arena's website, it looked like the square part of the HTC One m9 would just barely cover the width of the screen of the 10 and extend a bit over the top and bottom. So kind of on a lark, I ordered a glass protector for the m9 ( this one, to be precise), and to be honest, I really, really like it. It literally JUST barely covers the entire width (and I mean JUST barely, ie, if you look at it from an angle, you can see pixels from behind the screen, but only from an angle). Any wider, it'll overlap with the curved part and halo. Regardless, I'm very happy. It's tall enough that I don't run my finger over it when I swipe from the top or bottom of the screen, it stays put going in and out of my pocket and with my case, and no halos. Just putting that out there as an option!

    I am just wondering, is it okay if you can attach some pictures?

    Per your request, attached are more photos of the m9 glass protector on my htc 10. Still very pleased with it. =)

    I went with supershieldz full tempered glass from Amazon. From what I've seen in photos it looks identical to the orzly one, with the same dot matrix on the main portion of the screen. As others have mentioned the recessed home button is a change but hasn't effected the accuracy of the sensor and the dot matrix is noticeable in some light but not altogether bothersome. The one thing I will add is that the very edges of the screen don't curve to meet the slight curve of the 10. And if you're extremely OCD you'll notice some light dust and lint getting trapped in those edges. Again not noticeable in day to day use but it's there if you have an eye for extreme details. The lint doesn't appear to be anything large enough to leave permanent marks in the original screen itself. I tried to take an extreme closeup to show it but it's minor enough to be hard to capture.

    Other notes - I have no issues with the capacitive light buttons or notification light being blocked. They are precisely cut out so you have to be exact when laying the screen down but I got it on my first try. Also the screen protector works perfectly fine with my spigen case.

    I was previously using the crystal spigen screen protectors and I liked those as well. They showed wear over time but they're also all but invisible to the eye when new, whereas this protector you're aware of its presence in a few distinct ways.

    Overall pleased with the screen protector. Has its plusses and minuses but these are the best tempered glass protectors we'll get for the 10. No halos, and just a few compromises. The supershieldz happens to be two dollars cheaper on amazon than orzly and appears to be identical in case anyone wants to give it a shot.

    How noticeable are the dots?

    I think it's the same as without the screen, i don't have another device that takes good pictures but is the best i can do for now @ChronoReverse

    I just installed this tempered glass from ORZLY

    https://www.amazon.es/Orzly®-Protector-Pantalla-SmartPhone-TRANSPARENTE/dp/B01INKSUMI

    Do not produces the halo effect (I had it with the same type from GCOLOR, more in the left side than in the right). It is very clear and covers from edge to edge. It has holes for the speaker and the light sensor. Do not have holes from the front camera and the notification led, but the glass is very clear, the notification led is visible and the front camera works fine (and puts another layer of protection...). The capacitive buttons are seen very well.

    The bad thing is that has a very small dots in the screen that are sometimes visible when the are a lot of light, but this is properly announced in the product description. For me are barely visible, only with direct sun or a powerfull light. With the lights of my room I can't see them. With the screen on, are even less visible.

    For now I'm very happy. I attach some photos.
