The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus remains one of Samsungâ€™s best phones yet, with powerful hardware and a gorgeous design. That design highlights one specific feature â€” the huge Infinity-O display with a hole punch for the dual-lens selfie camera. The Dynamic AMOLED screen was awarded DisplayMateâ€™s highest-ever score for display tech, making it the best smartphone display in the world. One drop could change that, though.
Samsung ships the S10 range with a film screen protector, but film protectors can wear out fairly quickly, and theyâ€™re not great at protecting against falls. Itâ€™s likely youâ€™ll want a replacement eventually or something a little more hard-wearing. Thereâ€™s also the issue of the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. Samsungâ€™s new tech is incredible, but it doesnâ€™t work with many glass protectors, so youâ€™ll need to be sure your protector is compatible with Samsungâ€™s coolest new tech.
Weâ€™ve done the hard work so you donâ€™t have to. Whether youâ€™re looking for a new film protector to replace your Samsung-applied one or a more durable glass protector to take the bigger knocks, here are some of the best Galaxy S10 Plus screen protectors.
OtterBox Alpha Flex Protector
OtterBox is synonymous with top-grade protection, and that reputation extends to its screen protectors, too. The Alpha Flex takes everything that was great about the tempered glass Alpha Glass protectors and puts it into a flexible film protector. Itâ€™s made from a combination of TPU and PT (polyethylene terephthalate) that allows it to be flexible, conforming to all your Galaxy S10 Plusâ€™ curves without obscuring your view thanks to a scratch-resistant crystal coating. At $50, itâ€™s also the most expensive film protector weâ€™ve seen, so itâ€™s really only an option for people who are happy spending big on screen protection.
InvisibleShield Ultra VisionGuard Screen Protector
A lot of evidence points to blue light from smartphones being bad for your sleep, and there are a bunch of software solutions for that problem. But thereâ€™s more you can do, and InvisibleShieldâ€™s Ultra VisionGuard glass protector is a good option. The protective EyeSafe layer strips out harmful high-energy visible (HEV) blue light, making your phone easier on your eyes without changing the color palette. Being made from tough hybrid glass means itâ€™s resistant to scratches, bumps, and chips â€” and a special coating stops smears from oily fingerprints and smudges. Itâ€™s expensive, but itâ€™s excellent all-around protection.
Ringke Dual Easy Protector
Ease is the name of the game for Ringke, and the Dual Easy film protectors are incredibly easy to install. Simply follow the instructions and peel off each layer in turn â€” thereâ€™s even a layer to remove the last vestiges of dust from your screen to make sure thereâ€™s nothing between your display and screen protector. Itâ€™s clear and bright, and since itâ€™s film, itâ€™s also thin. However, being film means it wonâ€™t be as protective as tempered glass would be, so keep that in mind when youâ€™re picking it. Itâ€™s not badly priced at $15, especially when you factor in that it comes in a twin pack.
Armorsuit Matte Case Friendly Protector
Another film option, Armorsuitâ€™s case-friendly protector also has the advantage of offering some protection against glare. The film protector has been finished with a matte coating that stops bright lights from bouncing from your phoneâ€™s screen, so you can see your phone more easily while out in strong sunlight or under strong lights. Aside from that, this is a good film protector that protects against scratches and dirt. It has self-healing properties to heal up small scratches and has been treated to resist the yellowing effect as it ages. Itâ€™s not the flashiest protector around â€” literally, thanks to the matte coating â€” but it gets the job done, and itâ€™s cheap.
Whitestone Dome Glass Protector
Not too worried about spending money as long as your phoneâ€™s screen is safe? Whitestoneâ€™s Dome screen protector uses a wet application method to stick its toughened glass screen protector to your S10 Plusâ€™ screen. A UV lamp is then used to cure the adhesive, ensuring a tight fit to your screen and a seamless level of touch sensitivity. It fully covers the entirety of your device, including the curved edges, and the adhesive layer means itâ€™ll stay together even if itâ€™s shattered. Thanks to the layer of adhesive, the Whitestone Dome can even be applied to an already-broken screen, and the adhesive will fill in the cracks, ensuring a broken screen doesnâ€™t get any worse.
Spigen NeoFlex Film Protector
Film protectors have plenty of advantages â€” theyâ€™re cheaper, thinner, and in the case of the S10 Plus, they work better with the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. Spigen makes some excellent cases, but it also makes some great screen protectors to complete all-around protection. NeoFlex is a Spigen classic, and for good reason. Itâ€™s sized to fit the
Belkin Screenforce Glass Protector
If youâ€™re looking to spend a little less on a glass screen protector but still want the reassurance of a top name, then check out Belkinâ€™s Screenforce glass protector. Itâ€™s made from tough tempered glass, itâ€™s thin, and it gives excellent touch sensitivity and screen clarity. Itâ€™s also easy to attach to your S10 Plus, thanks to the easy-align tray. At $35, itâ€™s cheaper than Whitestone Domeâ€™s offering, though itâ€™s still on the higher end of prices for glass protectors. Still, it works with the ultrasonic scanner, and itâ€™s backed by Belkinâ€™s Limited Lifetime Warranty in the U.S. and Canada. However, it seems youâ€™ll have to wait a little while for it to become available, as itâ€™s not out yet.
ESR Liquid Skin Full-Coverage Screen Protector
ESR is one of the most well-known accessory manufacturers active today, and its Liquid Skin Full-Coverage Screen Protector provides a light, flexible film alternative to the tempered glass products that usually dominate the market. Given that itâ€™s made of soft TPU, it fits snugly around the curved edges of the S10 Plus, ensuring the fullest possible edge-to-edge protection. It also includes special â€œliquid skinâ€� material that heals minor scratches over time, saving you from having to replace it every time you scuff your phone. In case you do need a spare, it comes in a pack of two.
