Last month, when Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 smartphone series, it said that all S10 models would be released with pre-installed screen protectors. And, sure enough, when the new phones hit shelves earlier this month, they did come with screen protectors on. Made by Samsung itself, these official screen covers are specially designed to ensure the proper operation of the S10's touchscreen display, including the Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor that is hidden behind it (only on the S10 and S10 models, and traditional fingerprint scanner.
Since any screen protector is bound to be scratched and damaged at some point, Samsung has now begun selling replacement protectors for the entire Galaxy S1
An official Samsung Galaxy S10 screen protector pack includes not only two film screen protectors, but also a microfiber cloth, dust removal stickers, and a bubble-removing squeegee (to help with a smooth application ) – all seen in the image below. While every Galaxy S10 features a Gorilla Glass 6 screen that does not scratch or break easily, it's advisable to have a screen protector installed on your S10 at all times for extra security. Needless to say, it's far simpler and less costly to remove and replace a damaged protector instead of the whole screen if it gets broken
In case you think that $ 19.99 is a lot to pay for Samsung's own screen protectors, you may be able to find cheaper protectors – made by third-party manufacturers – via Amazon and other retailers. However, Samsung does not guarantee that the Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor of the S10 and S10 + will work properly with those. If you own a S10e, however, you do not have to worry about that – as already mentioned, this Galaxy model does not have an in-display sensor, instead comes with a regular fingerprint scanner that is embedded on the right side of the device. In other words, in the case of the Galaxy S10e, it's probably okay to get a third-party screen protector if you find a cheap one that has good reviews
