Galaxy S10 Screen Protectors
The Galaxy S10 has a great, big, beautiful screen with some fancy tricks inside — like that fancy ultrasonic fingerprint sensor — but those tricks make buying a screen protector all the more important and all the more difficult. See, that in-screen fingerprint sensor can’t tolerate any air bubbles or gaps between the screen and the screen protector. Your best bets are plastic film protectors or the Whitestone Dome Glass. Here are the best Galaxy S10 screen protectors. Don’t forget to check out the best Galaxy S10 cases as well.

That ultrasonic sensor can’t stand gaps
Finding the “perfect” Galaxy S10 screen protector is a hopeless task. Still, out of all the ones being offered, we think the best Galaxy S10 screen protector overall option is the ZAGG InvisibleShield Visionguard. It isn’t the most cost-effective one you can buy, but it does bring a lot to the table. It has robust protection, is resistant to smudges, and the built-in blue light filter is a nice touch.
If you can’t stomach that high price to cover your screen — to say nothing of the high priced Whitestone Dome Glass — there are some good value options to go for, too. We recommend checking out the LK 3-Pack and the U.S.-made ArmorSuit MilitaryShield.
I honestly prefer films for the S10 so long as I’m using the fingerprint sensor — you’ll need to pay extra attention to how the UV adhesive sets up around the ultrasonic sensor — but tempered glass screen protectors will offer much higher levels of durability and drop-protection for your S10. In the end, there’s a tradeoff to be made either way, but which side of that balancing act you fall on is up to you alone. Now that you’ve picked out the perfect screen protector, don’t forget to pick up one of the best Galaxy S10 cases.
Have troubles with fingerprints after install?
Whether you go glass or film, re-enroll your fingerprints after installing a screen protector. How the sensor sees your fingerprints could change from the built-in screen protector to a different one, so getting a fresh sample can help you avoid bad reads and timeouts. If the troubles continue for days after re-enrolling, then consider turning to Smart Lock to keep your phone unlocked when you’re carrying your phone, have it paired to a trusted Bluetooth device, or are in a trusted location. Smart Lock can be found in the Settings app under Security.
