Let's face it, accidents happen. All you can do is try to protect your device so it stays intact when disaster strikes. This especially rings true for a phone like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which comes in at more than $1,200. If you end up with a cracked screen, or even a deep scratch, replacing it can be a tough pill to swallow. Here are the best screen protectors you can get today.
Worth the price
Nothing gets more premium than the Whitestone Dome Glass screen protector. It offers full coverage and ensures that the sensitivity is great enough for the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. The only hang-up that folks may have is the installation procedure, but Whitestone includes a great tutorial video to make sure it gets applied correctly.
Zagg has been in the game for such a long time that the InvisibleShield line should definitely be considered. The same rings true with the Ultra Clear protector, thanks to its self-healing nano-memory technology which will fix itself when the protector suffers from "minor scratches and dings".
No glass needed
There are some out there who are not huge fans of tempered glass and prefer the "old-school" plastic screen protector. Skinomi has been a player in the game for quite a while. The TechSkin protector offers an ultra-clear experience without any residue and an easy installation process.
Avoid the scratches
The Orzero protector is a great pick. It comes in a 3-pack, offers a perfect fit for the Galaxy S10 5G, and is ultra-slim, offering a great overall glass screen protector without breaking the bank.
Use your case
An issue with some screen protectors is the fact that they don't work properly when a case is installed. Olixar solves this with its Case Friendly Screen Protector which will work with any case you have and even has an extra one if something happens. Olixar also provides a two-year warranty for the screen protector in the event that you have some issues.
It heals itself
Everyone hates when their brand new screen protector gets its first tiny scratch. Usually, this means that you just have to deal with it or try to install a new one. That's not the case with the GBBC Self Healing screen protector, as it's made from a combination of TPU and PET materials for extra durability.
Only your eyes
The bigger the display, the higher the chances of someone looking over your shoulder at some personal information. The Venoro Privacy Screen Protector prevents that from happening as the screen is only visible when viewing the screen head-on.
Tempered glass is usually the way to go for screen protectors and the MAXVITAVELA 3D Curved Tempered Glass is great for a few reasons. Not only is it ultra-thin (0.26mm), but it also offers an oleophobic nano-coating to protect against fingerprints. Plus, GBBC includes two of these in the box, so you'll be able to quickly swap one out if the first one breaks.
No bubbles or marks
The Spigen NeoFlex screen protector is a "flexible film" that is made to work with all of Spigen's cases and keep your screen free of scratches. There are two of these in the box, and the company promises that there will be no bubbles or rainbow marks after installation.

It would not surprise anyone that Samsung made the S10 5G the same size as the Galaxy S10 Plus, but that's not the case here. Instead, the S10 5G is even larger with its 6.7-inch display, compared to the 6.4-inch display found on the S10 Plus. For that reason alone, you will need to make sure that you get a screen protector that is designed specifically for the S10 5G.
Which screen protector should you pick?
The Galaxy S10 5G is an absolutely amazing device that is leading the industry, and you'll want to do whatever you can to protect your investment. Luckily, there are many different screen protectors available on the market for you to find the one that fits your preferences.
Our favorite of the lot is the Whitestone Dome Glass screen protector due to its reliability, and if you can get past the installation process, you'll be more than satisfied. The included Lifetime Warranty promises that you could get a replacement if the protector gets damaged or worn out over time.
But those who don't want to break the bank will want to look at the Orzero Screen Protector with its edge-to-edge coverage along with the fact that this comes in a three-pack. Plus, you'll have complete access to continue using the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner and not have to worry about facial recognition.
