There are a lot of 3rd party screen protectors available if you'd like to buy your own. The factory-installed screen protector isn't the best but it does the job and works well with the fingerprint sensor. Just make sure whatever screen protector you buy has verbiage stating support for the built-in fingerprint sensor or you won't be able to fingerprint into the phone. Don't even bother with tempered glass screen protectors...none of them will hold up due to the curved screen edges. I must've tried a dozen of them with my S9+, prices ranging from $8 for two, to $50 for the OtterBox alpha glass (many of the cheaper tempered glass screens actually out-lasted the alpha glass). They're all garbage and only adhere to the screen around the edges.

I have preordered an S10+ from Samsung, and was in the Verizon Store today and noticed that the S10+ on display appeared to have a screen protector already installed. I asked the Verizon rep, and he said yes, all S10s come with factory installed screen protector, and an add on screen protector is no longer required. True or False?
If you want scratch protection then factory protector is ok.
But if you drop your phone and have a tempered glass on it, then some of that energy is absorbed by the tempered glass and possibly saving your screen.
The fingerprint sensor in the glass is the stupidest thing ever done because of the technology behind it.
The fingerprint sensor was perfect when it the back and no problems with tempered glass protection. Only logical explanation is Samsung wants your phone unprotected against drops.
I have used White tower to cheap ebay screens and few between... all of them do not last and expensive for no apperant reason besides some gimmick fingerprint sensor. Thanks Samsung for taking an amazing phone and making it crappy.
I removed the factory screen protector and used a Zagg screen protector, I pre-ordered so the Zagg was one of the only ones out there at the time but I've loved it I've been rough on my S10 and the Zagg has kept my screen safe and I've never had an issue with the fingerprint sensor
