If you're going to bother getting a screen protector for your Galaxy Tab S3, then you'll want to go with tempered glass. If it cracks or chips, it won't turn into sharp, scratchy shards of death; it'll become blunt bits, so your screen will stay pristine. That being said, tempered glass is very strong, so you'd be hard-pressed to mess it up without much force.
