Best Galaxy Note 10+ screen protectors
There are a few things to consider before purchasing one of the best Galaxy S10+ screen protectors.

That ultrasonic sensor can’t stand gaps
Because that swanky new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor uses sound pressure waves to map and read your finger, there absolutely, positively cannot be any air gaps between your screen and its screen protector. The amFilm Ultra Glass Screen Protector uses a UV-drying application system that ensures no air pockets or gaps between tempered glass and your Galaxy S10+’s screen, so it works fine. Unfortunately, other tempered glass screen protectors that use traditional adhesives around the edges leave gaps that disrupt the ultrasonic sensor’s readings and make it impossible to get clean, consistent readings of your prints.

If you can’t stomach a pricier option to cover your screen, you’ll have to settle for film screen protectors like the IQ Shield or the LK 3-Pack. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles with cutting-edge tech sometimes.

The sensor or the screen: which do you value more?
While the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is neat, it’s also finicky and slow. I’m betting that protecting that screen means more to many of you than using the fingerprint sensor. If that’s how you feel, you should consider disabling the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and using Smart Lock, Facial recognition, and a PIN/Pattern/Password to secure your phone instead. As someone who’s used Smart Lock since the old Moto X days when it was called Trusted Bluetooth, this is a useful feature that’s made me care a little less about the fingerprint sensor overall.

Especially since it means that I can ignore this glitchy new sensor and grab myself an affordable traditional tempered glass protector like the amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector 2-pack to protect the screen on my new beautiful beast of a phone.
