The best part about the Galaxy S10e — from a our screen-oriented standpoint — is that its screen is flat, so just about any quality screen protector should work like a dream. Unlike its counterparts, the S10e sticks with a traditional capacitive fingerprint sensor on the power button rather than an gimmicky new in-screen sensor, meaning that we don't have to worry as much about air gaps and incompatibilities. That gives the Galaxy S10e — and users like you — the advantage when shopping for screen protectors.
